Why do we give away our personal power?


The majority of us have given our personal power away.


Why do we give away our personal power?


We give away our personal power

for the illusion of security,

to run from loneliness and

our craving for a sense of belonging.


We give away our personal power to past hurts

by not resolving them and our continual

conscious and subconscious focus on them.


We give away our personal power to the future

by worrying and trying to control

 unacceptable potential outcomes.


We give away our personal power

by refusing to face our shadows.


We give our power to our gurus

be it spiritual or political

 by shutting our minds and hearts off

acting as a droid.


We give away our personal power to the medical doctors

by not learning about our mind and body.


We give away our personal power to drugs (legal or not)
by not investigating the root causes of our dis-ease


We give away our personal power to ideas and laws based on

the politically correct labels of
 “security” “freedom” and “reform”

without investigating their contents.


We give away our personal power to time and space

 by limiting our ideas and dreams of what is possible.


We give away our personal power by

by not listening to the voice within.


We give away our personal power by

not speaking our truths.


Regaining our personal power requires

courage to face the fear of rejection and loneliness.


What personal power have you given away?


What personal power do you want to get back?
