POWER source: Contemporary Shamanism (Safe Practices) Power doesn't always need to come via force. Power can come through gentleness. There may be people who want to prove that they are more powerful than you via manipulation, fear and shame. This control is about them and there deep feelings of powerlessness. If someone is trying to dominate you, the teaching may be pointing you towards recognizing your own power and how that manifests within you. It may manifest within better communication skills, building the inner witness, working with your inner child's needs, self forgiveness, clearing the inner critic and old hurts. etc. The more you recognize your own innate power the less those that want to have power over you will be able to control you. Power is energy. There is nothing wrong with power. Its how it is used that can be helpful or harmful. Blessings
Gentleness does not mean weakness. Gentleness has a profound strength in its approach, its intuitive perceptions, its sensitivity and its grace. Gentleness can be a powerful tool that can penetrate better than any other force. Gentleness is highly receptive. Let gentleness be a part of your walk.
