Our emotions serve as classes in this Earth School. Emotions will either make you feel powerless (fear) or powerful (love).
But at any given moment you possess the power to respond in love or respond in fear.
You get to choose!
In our pursuit to gain some sense of control in our lives, we often confuse external power with authentic power. We seek external power and believe that the more we acquire it, the more success we achieve, the more influential we become, and the more respect we will gain from others. But it is quite the opposite!
While external power deals with the ability to manipulate and control (fear), authentic power is the alignment of our personality with our soul (love).
So, today I would like to share some distinct behavior differences between authentic and external power.
Which are you mostly operating from? This list might surprise you. I know it did for me!
Authentic Power (Love) External Power (fear)
Vulnerable Emotionally closed
Open Heart Walled off
Intimacy Power Struggle
Wants to heal Avoids Pain
Faces Fear Resists Fear
Creates Authentic Power Seeks External Power
Open to intuition Closed to intuition
Detached from outcome Attached to outcome
Spiritually growing Spiritually stagnant
Let’s remember that authentic power is created by YOU and therefore comes from WITHIN.
It is the ONLY TRUE POWER!
