Giving Away Your Power

Many of us have been in situations where we have given away our power.

When you give away your power, you literally give your energy to another person.

People give away their power for different reasons:

  • Family, cultural or gender programming
  • Group pressure
  • Idolization or envy of other people
  • Avoidance or apathy
  • Lack of confidence/self-esteem
  • Not wanting to establish healthy boundaries
  • Seeking Approval
  • Fear of speaking up
  • Looking outward for answers rather than within

When you give away your power, you become disconnected from your inner truth and this can cause energetic imbalances and blocks in your body.

The first step in reclaiming your power is to become aware of any interactions or situations that cause you to give it away.

One way to do this is to notice what happens to your third chakra.  The third chakra is in your solar plexus and is responsible for personal power. When you are giving away your power this area will feel tight, tense and nervous.

Start by taking a few deep breaths and tune into this area.

Breathe gold light down through your body. Let the gold light soak into your solar plexus and expand into your belly. Feel it melting away any tension and heavy energy before exhaling out. Repeat until you feel calm and your sense of power has been restored.

If you are still feeling unempowered, it can be a sign that you have a blocked third chakra – your power center.  If this is the case, then it might be time for a third chakra tune up and rebalancing reading.

This reading will look at any areas of your life where you are giving away your power. During the reading, I will unblock and re-align your third chakra. This will help you start to make more empowered choices that complement your unique spiritual path.

An Introduction to the Chakras - 3rd Chakra

THE THIRD CHAKRA

 OFFICIAL NAME: Solar Plexus chakra

WHERE IT IS IN THE BODY: in the solar plexus

COLOR: Yellow

 The third chakra is in the solar plexus and relates to your personal power and how you run your energy. It deals with issues of willpower, purpose and action.

 WHEN YOUR THIRD CHAKRA IS BALANCED IT HELPS

  •  With Self-Esteem and security (inner confidence, peace and stability)
  • The more secure you are, the more confident you feel. This allows you to get out of your comfort zone to have new experiences
  • Own your information & trust your gut instincts
  • Not take on invalidation from others
  • Develop self- discipline to stick with something and get good at it

HOW TO TELL IF YOUR THIRD CHAKRA IS BLOCKED

  • You believe that you are powerless & see yourself as a victim
  • You imagine other people think the worst of you and experience doubt, anxiety & mistrust.
  • Fear of failure
  • Overactive ego that leads to power struggles, aggression and domination
  • Very goal driven (define success through accomplishments and accolades)

HOW TO TELL IF YOUR THIRD CHAKRA IS TOO OPEN OR TOO CLOSED

Someone with a tightly closed third chakra (personal power) would be terrified of confrontation, while another who is more open, may thrive on it.

Having a balanced third chakra will allow you to feel good about yourself and get aligned to your life purpose.
