Power, Self-Empowerment, Soul Evolution
By Alison Stormwolf
Our Soul Evolution
Understanding the meaning
and importance of living in our Authentic Power, and living it,
is surely one of the most loving things we can do for ourselves
and the world in this day and age. It is part of our soul
evolution. It is the difference between living consciously
and living unconsciously. It is the difference between self-empowerment
and dis-empowerment. It is the difference between pain and
happiness, suppression and freedom. It is the difference between
spiritual growth or stagnation.
Who We Are & Why We Are Here
We are born into the world as Divine Beings (God Consciousness)
incarnating for the purpose of Experience in physical form. This
experience can take many lifetimes. We take our soul seed with us,
which becomes richer with each successive lifetime of lessons and
teachings. When we are born into the earth experience, we step down
our higher vibration to a lower vibration to accommodate linear
time and experience via the 'five senses'. In doing this,
we put on the veil of forgetfulness and 'forget' who we truly are.
The world of the material and of the five senses is illusory.
It is all merely an illusion. The material world is temporary,
yet we are Eternal. Each successive lifetime brings experiences
to us that eventually help us remember who we are and brings us
closer and closer to our final life-time when we can step off the
'wheel of karma' and return to our Source.
The very fact that we re-incarnate shows us that we still have
lessons to learn. Those who no longer need those lessons are 'transcendent'.
They have in fact left the 'wheel of karma' and entered into a superior
state from which they no longer need to return, but may do so if
they wish, for the purpose of being in service.
Little Soul & The Sun by Neale Donald Walsch for further
understanding of this concept.
The Great Deception
As just stated, we are on this earth to evolve our souls, and part
of the soul's evolution is to re-discover the Power ingrained
in us. Organised religion over the last couple of millenia has
taught us the very opposite. Jesus spoke Truth. The church (mostly
catholic) in many instances became corrupt and subdued the people,
twisting the teachings and words of Jesus who taught empowerment,
by forcing the belief that we are separate from god, that we have
no power, and that we are 'born' sinners with salvation being the
only 'way', and that anything else will reap eternal damnation by
a wrathful needy god (whilst saying that God is Love). This has
instilled fear, and has discouraged us from being the truly powerful
beings that we are! This is the GREAT DECEPTION!
I never viewed myself
like this before
Just as poverty slips on you
Like night time’s caress
So a different way of being
Is draped on you too
Divorcing me from the person
I identified with
(For all we, as unawakened souls ever do
Is 'identifying with')
Transported from one chapter
Never totally realising
The turning of the page
My personal script is so funny
Tragic and larger than life…
Thankfully I can laugh
And do so often
In ratio to my tears
Was never my calling
So if I am going to fail
I will do it with gusto
And my successes leave doubters
And that is the way
I like it
That was my Path

We are taught that looking 'within' is akin to evil and/or that
our inner wisdom is not to be trusted because we are 'mere flesh'
and that sin is 'of the flesh'. This teaching makes us "unworthy"
and aims to disempower us, to distance us from our own power and
worthiness - in effect making us power-less.
Our Tue Power is our God Consciousness. Were we not
"created in the image of God"? The "image of
God" is not meant to be taken as merely a physical form, but
as the "consciousness" that God is - LOVE and Limit-less-ness.
It is the nature of God that we were created in, not a physical
The Wisdom Is Within You, Not Without
When we rely on or believe that someone else (including "God")
has all the power, this makes us power-less to affect our lives
in the way that we choose. When we do not commune with our
inner wisdom (Divine Intelligence) we live 'unconsciously' and in
this state we create pain for ourselves. However, when we
are living "consciously" this means that we listen to
and trust our inner voice and inner wisdom and make our decisions
based on that. We are basing our behaviours on the whispers
of our soul. Our soul has a higher and wider view than we
as humans do.
I wish to state categorically that I am not anti-church.
I believe in Jesus and the many millions of good people who do too.
I am simply stating that we need at some point to stop and ask ourselves
how much we 'know' is truth and how much have we just accepted because
we were always told those things.
It is so easy to just adapt to social conditioning, but it is
very bad for the soul in you, it doesn't allow for growth.
I believe that every single person alive needs to examine their
belief systems as a matter of urgency. You see, it’s all to
do with "waking up!". Realising your lives could be gone
in a second. Nobody knows what their time span is. This is crucial
to being alive in the moment.
Think of all the trials you have endured. If you do not realise
the power behind it you will leave this world no more evolved than
that new born babe.
Living Our Authentic Power
Living our Authentic Power means listening to the voice within,
regardless of the pressure of social conditioning or any authority
or peer group belief systems. You are a unique individual
and have your own path to traverse. Your path is not necessarily
the path of others.
It is the voice within that knows best for us and will always guide
is in the right direction for our soul evolution. Honouring
this inner wisdom means that we are aligning our human selves with
our souls, for the purpose of spiritual growth. It means that
we are being who we truly are - a magnificent spark of
the Creative Force. Anything less than this is a chaining
of the soul, and will create pain.
We are powerful beyond our wildest dreams but we do not know it.
New times are coming. I have seen it for many years. We are now
in the 'NEW AGE', a term that has unfortunately become synonymous
with freaky ideals and lots of dubious thinking.
Tips on How To Live In Our Authentic Power:
The 'New' Consciousness of Self-Empowerment
Like it or not , times are a'changing and we are now collectively
shaking off the old consciousness of disconnection, separate-ness
and unworthiness like a dog shakes off water. We are transiting
from the Age of Pisces into the "Age Of Aquarius".
The ways of the last couple of thousand years were deep in dis-empowerment
and separate-ism. How does this separate-ism and disconnection look?
It is the taught belief that God is a "separate being"
"out there", looking down on "you" the other
separte being, a "born sinner" on a "separate earth",
ready to smite you forever with his(? who ever said it was a he?)
finger at your slightest indescretion. This is powerlessness!
The ancient teachings that we are gods and goddesses in our own
right and that we are part of a "symbiotic whole" became
'occult' (meaning hidden) because of the paranoia, false teachings
and persecutions by the 'established' church which made people scared
to continue to embrace this knowledge. I am not saying that
there are not occult practices that are very dark and dangerous.
I am saying that anyone who is operating from authentic power laughs
at such practices knowing that the power in us of goodness is almighty.
The new consciousness is simply a revival of 'ancient knowledge'
that has been suppressed by external power mongers and forced to
go underground till it was almost all but forgotten. External
power doesn't work and it is destructive - just take a look at the
world around you! But this external power consciousness is
now crumbling and is making way for the new consciousness, which
states that "True Power is within you". This is
what Jesus really taught - self-empowerment and that we are all
gods! It is now time to Reclaim Your Power! Listen to
your Inner Wisdom. The answers you seek lie inside of you!
inwards in the stillness
access your inner warrior
only for your call.
