Your inner power is the ability to choose freely how to react to life circumstances, is the extent to which you can use your talents and ability to accomplishing your goals, and realizing your dreams.
This needs to be said as first because there is a rumor that power has something to do with being able to influence the behavior of others to your advantage or that money has a part in having power.
Your power is something between you and yourself, is how your personal development manifests itself, is how you notice that you are growing wiser and more capable to make a difference in your life and in the environment you live in.
I believe this is enough to see why accessing your personal power is so important for yourself, your life, and for the world. The more you are in contact with your own power the more you feel grounded and capable of functioning optimally in your life, the more you feel empowered and capable of facing challenges and the more you experience happiness, fulfillment, and purpose in your life.
Yes, but how do you access your power?
The truth is that there are many ways to access it. My choice is to share some of the easiest and simple. Why make it complicated when it can be simple?
However, I have to warn you, I’ve often seen people losing themselves in complex considerations about their power and their self-image. A simple solution helps you ground, let go of the complexity of the mind, meet yourself at a very basic level.
You can compare this to the habit of monks of doing themselves all the cleaning, the gardening and cooking in the monastery. It is simple work, they already know how to do it, however, the reason they do it is that the simplicity of the work is grounding, meditative and helps them stay connected with the basics.
There is an important lesson to be learned here, namely reaching a higher level of complexity requires that you keep in contact with the basics. The further you develop on your process cognitively or spiritually, the most relevant it is to go back to basic to stay grounded.
Access to your inner power also requires this approach, in my humble opinion. This is also the answer to how you expand your inner power.
As per how you use it, I leave that entirely to you. I know you will know how to use it every step of the way.
