Reclaiming the reins of True power

“True power does not lie in the hands of another. It rises from within you ~from your own awesome Spirit.” … Susanne

What happened to the bright sparks who arrived here … open … excited … and ready to change the world?  How did it come to pass that their innocence was corrupted … buried … or destroyed?  And why would anyone voluntarily choose to do such a thing?  It makes me wonder: Is there a way to end the continuation of pain that generations of wounded souls have not only endured but passed on … one to the next?

My response to that last question is: “Yes I believe that there is” … and the solution can be summed up in one old adage: “The buck stops here!”   Looking back I realize that I was always the strong one in my family … even when I didn’t know it.  I was the pillar of strength for my lovely; but terribly wounded mom and the post of stability for my lost and lonely dad.  And … even as a young child … I knew beyond the shadow of a doubt that “The Responsibility-Buck” stopped right at my feet.

Many years … buckets full of experiences … loads of Healing of my own inner wounds … and oodles of water-under-my-bridge … later I am coming full circle … back to my roots. My inner … and previously latent power is rising again.  As I allow myself to become what I came here to be I am noticing … with great awe and joy … the large number of young people who are standing up to be counted … and who are refusing to allow anyone to take their power or their gifts away from them.  I am motivated and inspired!  Whether they are singers, speakers, changers-of-the-old or inventors–of-the-new they remind me that I too am here for a reason … that I too have the ability to share the gifts that Life gave me … and that … if I but gather my courage and the love in my Heart … I too have the power to make a difference in somebody’s life.

Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everyone

    Wonderful! Interesting, too, as I am also writing (blogging) about inner strength – more forcefully tomorrow – and looking at family expectations and how I broke away and lived my dream.

    Must be something in the air. 🙂 Or energy. Something. Great minds think alike, maybe?

    Cheers to you. 🙂
