I have found through reading, experience and intuitive guidance,
Humans lacking self-awareness and self-love often feel it's necessary to prove and exert their power over others. They live in a fear-based reality in which they assume it's necessary to take from others in order to gain something of their own. This is an illusion.
They will often flash their material objects as a way to prove their "more powerful" or "holier than thou". The dangerous part is those with less materialistically, who place their worth externally, believe it.
You can have all the material wealth in the world and still be as poor as ever.
Real power is internal. It's empowering and it's loving. It's not forceful. And most importantly, there is NEVER a need to take from others in order to gain that which is your birthright.
If we all recognized that true power lies within and there is no need to exert ourselves over others to try to gain more or prove ourselves, wars would cease.
Not just wars between nations, but wars between races, between spouses and even wars between our mind and our Spirit.
For a long time now, Earth has been populated with humans living through fear and entirely within structures. Humans who assume their way is the "right" way and those who "oppose" them are "wrong" or "sinners".
Is it their fault? No, not necessarily. Many of us were born into a society that conditioned us to be this way, born into families that unknowingly suppressed our innate love and acceptance of others because the same had been done to them growing up.
Perhaps for many years you have been the victim of these happenings without knowing it. Collectively, I feel that many of us are beginning to realize this but may be struggling to fully accept it, understand it or know what to do with the realization.
It is important to recognize that even if we were a victim at one time, or many times, throughout our lives we do not have to identify with that label for the rest of our lives. Stepping out of victimhood mentality and into the mindset of free will, growth and transformation is a huge part of internal, loving power.
I have found that it's not necessarily about gaining power internally, but uncovering all he layers, all the limiting beliefs and all the conditioning that has hidden it from us all along.
To me, internal power is having the ability to navigate my life from a place of free will, love strength and clarity. This power cannot be taken away by someone else and I don't need to take from others in order to gain it either. That's what makes it so beautiful.
It's my birthright and it's yours as well.
For a long time now, Earth has been populated and clouded with fear-based structured living, but I feel in my heart that we are moving out of this mindset, slowly and painfully in many ways as darkness is just as necessary as light to establish Universal balance, but surely. Love is the only way.
