With a deep breath in and in slow release let your body fall into calm surrender. Empowering yourself begins with being in a receptive mode. Being receptive to learning all you can about yourself. When you are in calm surrender you are able to recognize what you struggle with and what you need to change in order to move forward. One of the things you may need to change is your attachments. Attachments can be emotional bonds that connect us to other people, they can also be our style of connecting with others ( secure, avoidant, anxious or disorganized ) or anything we cling to, to help us identify who we are, what we do or how we enjoy doing things in specific ways. Even our belief systems or worldviews are a part of our attachments.
Part of learning to empower yourself is learning who and what you are attached to. This exercise will help you:
- Write a list of the people and things you feel attached to.
- Review this list acknowledging what or who causes you tension, anxiety or emotional harm.
- Acknowledge what is working for you or in your favour on this list.
- Now consider what your life would look like if you were not attached to any of the things causing tension.
Self empowerment comes with recognizing that you don’t really need those attachments that cause you tension or anxiety. All you need is to be yourself fully, openly and honestly. Be true to you!
Chances are your attachments are related to the idea that you are not enough by yourself. So let go and let more of who you are come forth.
You are a creator, You are all that is, You are everything you need!
