Creating a Power Practice

What is a Power Practice, you might ask? A Power Practice is a practice that encourages you to step into your authentic power each and every day and to take responsibility for your own happiness. But in order to create an effective Power Practice, you must first understand the nature of true power.

True power comes from within. It is power under versus power over   meaning it is the well of power we find hidden underneath our fears, our circumstances, and our ego rather than an exertion of power over another or the forces beyond our control. True power is not dominant or controlling, though it is active and responsible. It resides with the self, rather than the other and therefore must be found rather than taken.

You can build a Power Practice out of anything that connects you to your own seat of power, which is housed in the solar plexus chakra. Here are just a few of our suggestions.

Exercise

According to the adage, “as above   so below,” if we strengthen our bodies, then it follows that we will feel stronger mentally, spiritually, and emotionally as well. Yoga, because it connects us to both our balance and strength, is an excellent part of any Power Practice. But you may want to try the grounding benefits of weight training, or the stamina and endurance training of running as your empowering exercise.

Meditation

While it may seem quiet and passive on the surface, meditation is an incredibly empowering experience which deepens our sense of sacred connection. It is often true in our culture that learning to be still and silent is far more challenging than being naturally reactive and vocal.

Intuition

Hearing the voice of our own higher wisdom requires patience and faith beyond the day-to-day experience. When we listen to our intuition, we develop a relationship with our own unique inner guidance system, allowing us to feel more confident as we navigate the inevitable unknowns of this world.

Affirmation

Reinforcing positive beliefs about ourselves allows us to begin embodying those qualities we most admire as we reframe our personal expectations. For an added kick, we can write and practice affirmations directly focused on self-empowerment, such as, I am capable.

Education

Ever heard the saying, knowledge is power? Arming ourself with information allows us to develop a better understanding of the world around us. That understanding feeds into our choices, decisions, and judgments increasing confidence and well-being as it is reinforced with positive and predicted outcomes.
