Choosing Empowerment

A mans true state of power and riches is to be in himself.
 -- Henry Ward Beecher

Our greatest dream at Higher Awareness is to support personal empowerment. What does empowerment mean?

It does NOT mean I am faulty and need to be fixed. In fact, empowerment can only come when I fully accept and appreciate who I am now, in black and white and all shades of grey. Once I accept who I am, I can grow. As Wayne Dyer has said, I will grow. I will become something new and grand, but no grander than I now am.

Empowerment can only happen in the present moment. And it can only happen through awareness. With awareness, I can choose something greater for myself right now.

Our newest resource list offers you a wealth of different perspectives on empowerment (see below). Basically, I empower myself when I:

  • Discover and live more and more fully in my own truth.
  • Acknowledge my fears and move through them.
  • Choose to be content and at peace, no matter what.
  • Make decisions that honour my needs as well as the needs of others.
  • Find meaning, purpose and fulfillment in life.

How do I empower myself? One way is to ask myself empowering questions! If we ask a question, our subconscious mind will go after the answer. It makes sense, then, to ask constructive questions that will bring benefits.

Some empowering questions could be:

  • What approach would be helpful here?
  • What can I learn from this experience?
  • Whats the gift in this situation?
  • How can I feel better about this?

It helps to ask for direction for what we want rather than to affirm what we dont want. Explore more empowering questions through the link below. 

We are no longer puppets being manipulated by outside powerful forces; we become the powerful force ourselves.
-- Leo Buscaglia
