Authentic Power-Love is All You Need

I was just listening to an interview with Gary Zukov and he was talking about authentic power and his words are so profound. If you haven’t read his books Seat of the Soul and The Heart of The Soul, I highly recommend them. Basically, he talks about the evolution of our souls and how we are put in the “Earth School” to learn how to become aligned with our soul. Contrary to the egoic model of power that is so prevalent in our society, authentic power is the power to change ourselves from within. It is more about who we are “being” and evolving into. In order to tap into our authentic power, we need to come from a place of love and not fear. Because authentic power is an inner game job, it is not about trying to manipulate the world around us, but rather to make choices that are in our highest and best interest-fueled by the energy of love. According to Gary, every human feels insecure- wants to love and belong but we feel as though we are intrinsically flawed. Furthermore, on a deep “soul” level, we believe that if anyone could see us as we really are, we would not be lovable. This is the challenge of the soul’s journey-to align our true self with love. When we come from a place of love we meet with the fear within ourselves that may otherwise cause us to do things like: play the victim become angry withdraw These are all attempts to manipulate the outside world-to keep us “safe”. When we are in  authentic power, we...

Baby Boomer Woman-What Will You Do This Year?

As I approach my 59th birthday this month, I am again reminded about how fast time goes by. Birthdays do that, don’t they? They cause you to stop and think-evaluate where you are and where you are heading. So many things are happening this year. This year my youngest daughter left the nest and I am not going to lie-it was a sad first few weeks of letting go. My husband and I missed hearing her stories when she came home from her Interior Design job in Boston. She breathed energy into our home with her dynamic personality and it felt empty for awhile. My middle daughter got engaged to the love of her life. It has been a year filled with planning and getting excited and lots of female bonding with her and her sisters.  Her happiness fills my heart and I am soo grateful! And my oldest daughter and son in law are having a baby-our first Grandchild. He is a little boy and we are already madly in love with him. We are excitedly planning the nursery in their new home with heartfelt anticipation. And life goes on………. There are some changes that are unplanned in our lives and whether or not they bring us joy or sadness, it is up to us to determine how we will adapt. But there is a restless side in me that doesn’t want to just “adapt”. That side of me wants to create my life from the inside out-living intentionally and with purpose. I want to be in alignment with those things that mean the most to me-to tap...

Time to Shake Things Up

I believe that  it is really important to “shake things up” once in awhile so that we see things from a different perspective- a much more empowering perspective. Often we get caught up in “figuring things out” for our lives and businesses from a linear perspective. Perhaps we follow a plan that has been successful for someone else and we assume that we will get the same results. However, there is another way and this way, if you are not familiar with it, may seem a little bit daunting or woowoo for those of you pragmatic folks out there. This other way has us  tapping  into universal wisdom and combines it with the DNA of our Soul so that we tune into solutions that we may not have thought of. It involves being in congruence with what feels great and creative and expansive instead of unexciting, tried and true, and typical. Although it doesn’t come with a recipe for certainty, it is super juice for entrepreneurs because it allows us to put our personal stamp on everything that we do. If we follow our soul’s whispers we will feel empowered to trust ourselves more from the inside out and we will create a life beyond our wildest dreams. When the personality comes fully to serve the energy of its soul, that is authentic empowerment. ~Gary Zukav When we feel empowered from the inside out, our lives and businesses are in flow because we are aligned with a much more profound source of energy. We become more resourceful and things come to us easily. We actually magnetize things to our...
