“Becoming empowered is in its simplest form to become truly present and to open up to and embrace the power which is available to you at all times – the power which is part of who you are. When you are cut off from your power, you are cut off from yourself. The more you come closer to becoming yourself, to finding and being your true self, the closer you become to being and expressing the power which is yours and which you are.”It’s my spirit guide who is speaking. He strolls calmly beside me as we walk on the beach with the ocean to our left side. It’s such a healing, cleansing, and empowering place to be.
He smiles, “Exactly! Places are also empowering. A classic place of empowerment in nature is by the ocean. It allows you to experience and clearly see the process of empowerment. Being by the sea gives you a feeling of being cleansed, which is step one, to let go of what you don’t need to hang on to, in this connection especially feelings, thoughts, beliefs, etc. It brings healing by providing you with fresh air to breathe in deeply, renewing you on the inside. It brings healing and harmony through the sounds the waves make as they roll up on the land. And if you make it into a meditation – notice what other sounds there are: birds, wind, etc. The power that is present in and by the sea brings you power too. And the open view to the horizon allows you to open your mind and your heart, to take a wider perspective or view of your life, of the world. By the sea you get more in touch with nature and with yourself. This is just one example of the many ways you can get healing and empowerment.
As you heal and begin to embrace your power, you also need further support to connect with your specific gifts or power, and how to bring it out in the world. We’ll get to that at another time. For now let the healing take place by listening to the soft sounds of the sea.”I thank my spirit guide and end the journey.
