Reclaiming Your Power

With the previous post, you worked on finding and identifying all the areas where power has been lost. Now it’s time to reclaim that power.

If you want your power back, you have to take it.

Because power loss largely occurs on a spiritual, energetic, and emotional level, reclaiming your lost power is also a spiritual, energetic, and emotional act.

Power loss can occur in small, unseen ways. So much as a certain disapproving glance from a loved one can be enough to make you feel shame and for them to take control of your feelings.

In your list from the previous step, you identified all the ways in which you have experienced a loss of power in your life – from childhood to present day.

It’s time to call back your power.

Power retrieval is an empowering process that in the shamanic field can otherwise go by an energy retrieval ceremony.

But you don’t have to be a shaman to do it.

Today’s Exercise:

Power Retrieval

With your list in hand, you are going to complete a power energy retrieval meditation.

Here’s How:

  1. Take your list and find a quiet place to sit.

  2. Close your eyes.

  3. Take a few deep breaths.

  4. Visualize a series of houses in the distance, formed in semi-circle on the horizon. Each of these houses, with the lights on, represents one of the items on your list. One of the locations that your power energy is stored.

  5. One by one, imagine that a stream of light begins to flow from each house, back to you. With each inhale, you breathe in the stream of the light. As you do, visualize the light in the house slowly going out. Your power energy is no longer stored there – it is now with you.

  6. Breathe in the stream of light coming from one house, then the next, then the next, and so on until you have moved through all of the houses. There is one house for each item on your list.

  7. When you have finished, pause, and place your right hand on your chest. Say quietly or inside your mind, “I have now reclaimed my power and I am filled with the glowing light of my own strength.”

  8. Open your eyes.

Complete this exercise today to reclaim your personal power.

Visualization operates through the use of energy – and when you are dealing on the energetic realms, once you visualize something, it means it’s truly happening.

If you’d like to take it up a notch, get a copy of the Energy Retrieval Guided Meditation and be guided through this process.

While this activity is now complete, make sure to hang onto your list until the next post – we have an activity planned for it.

See you then!
