      How to Accept Power

      How does this feel? Do you embrace it or push it aside? The subject of power isn’t explored very much or taught in schools, or even by parents. Luckily, this is beginning to change.

      People see me as a POWER*FULL woman. Yet, I don’t see it myself. Why?
      We are endowed with power by our very birth, and then shrouded from the knowledge and acceptance of it. My mother is a POWER*FULL woman. When I comment on it she laughs and says, “Oh no, I’m not.”

      What do we think power is?
      The dictionary says;
      “Ability to do, act, or produce,” “Great ability to do, act or affect strongly; bigger; force; strength,” “A spirit or divinity.”

      I think we must study power and what it means to us as women. Power means to me:
      ~ Standing strongly in your own center and living from your heart.
      ~ Truth-telling, wisdom, and strength. How often do we think of power?

      Think of your woman friends.
      Identify the ones you consider POWER*FULL. Why?
      What qualities do they share? How can we increase healthy power as women?

      Consider: spiritual power, physical power, financial power, emotional power, psychic power, healing power, love power

      In what ways are you powerful? In what ways do you feel less powerful? Do you think of power consciously?  

      When I think of POWER*FULL female role models, I think of:
      Athena, Amelia Earhart, Maya Angelou, Sylvia Beach, Mother Theresa, All Mothers, Eleanor Roosevelt, Oprah Winfrey, Elizabeth Kubler-Ross, Bette Midler, Barbra Streisand (there are so many fantastic and POWER*FULL women!)
      In what ways are you like these women? Different?

      We need new definitions of power. It is not “Power over” I am interested in. I think that as women, we think that it isn’t nice to talk about power. Or, we think of power as domination. Power needs to be re*vision*ed for women. It’s time for us to create power, be visible POWER*FULLY, and accept power.

      I envision a world full of POWER*FULL women, who know it’s and act from it. Imagine the miracles that we can create!
