If someone is an empowered human being, they are going to believe that they have control over their life. Along with what they believe, there is going to be how they behave in their day-to-day life.
Another way of looking at this would be to say that their behaviour is defined by what they believe. Now, this is not to say that their life will always go as they want it to go; what it means is that they won’t feel as though their whole life is out of their control.
In the Centre
One can then have moments when they feel as though their life is out of their control, and they could even have moments when they feel as though they are in completely control, but they are generally going to be in the middle. Therefore, even if they do feel like a victim, this is not going to be an experience that will last for very long.
Sooner or later, they will realise that this is not the truth and this allow them to reconnect to their inner power and to see that they are not just an observer of their reality. Through seeing life in this way, it is naturally going to have a positive effect on their mental and emotional wellbeing.
Always a Way
The reason for this is that even if they feel helpless, it won’t be something that lasts. For example, they could try something and not get anywhere, with this casing them to feel weak.
In this case, they could end up reaching out for support or they could simply move on. On the other hand, if they were to feel like this practically all the time, it would be normal for them to feel depressed and to even experience anxiety.
They are going to believe that they can’t do anything about their life, so why would they feel any different? Feeling depressed is also going to be a reflection of how powerless they feel and feeling anxious will be a reflection of how out of control they feel.
Being on edge will be a way for them to try to minimise the damage that could be done to them. Feeling empowered is then not just going to allow one to have an effect on their reality; it will also make it easier for them to feel good on the inside.
A Fulfilling Life
If one was to think about their life, they may see that there are a number of things that they are happy with. But even if they were to think about the areas that need to be improved, it shouldn’t fill them with dread.
Deep within them, they will know that they can do something about the parts of their life that are not going in the right direction. This doesn’t mean that they will always have the answers; what it means is that they won’t give up until they find them.
From The Outside
If another person was to describe them, they could say that they are an extrovert who is a larger than life character. Then again, they could say that they are fairly unassuming and don’t really stand out.
What this shows it that someone doesn’t need to be really outgoing in order to be an empowered human being. Another thing that could be said about them is that they have high self-esteem.
The Main Difference
One way of looking at this would be to say that the reason they experience life in this way is due to the fact that they have high self-esteem. Thus, in the same way that a machine won’t work if there is no power, someone won’t be able to feel empowered if they have low self-esteem – this is their power source.
Taking this into account, this is something that is very simple and not something that takes a lot of brain power to understand. However, while it can seem as though this is something that is black and white, there is a lot more to it.
What this comes down to is that for one to feel as though they can influence their life, they will need to feel as though it is safe enough for them to do so. This is then similar to how someone can have the ability to run around a field but, if this field is covered in bombs, for instance, it won’t be safe enough for them to utilise this ability.
This is then why someone can load themselves up with self-esteem, but if they don’t feel safe enough to fulfil their own needs, it won’t matter. They will know that they can influence their life, yet it will be too uncomfortable for them to do so.
Right at the Bottom
Alternatively, one might allow themselves to change certain parts of their life or to only go to a certain level. Having the ability to do something is one thing, but it is another thing all together to feel enough to do it.
So, if someone allows themselves to exercise their personal power and to have an effect on their reality, it will show that this is what feels safe. Their lower body, the part where their base charka is, is going to be working with the rest of their body.
When one doesn’t feel safe enough to assert themselves, it is likely to show that their lower body is not on board with the rest of their body. This is can show that they have experienced trauma at one point in their life.
During this time, they would have felt powerless and as though it was safe for them to exist. The part of their body that will allow them to feel safe is going to be offline, and this means that it will be unable to provide them with the sense of safety that they need to be able to truly embrace life.
This could relate to trauma that one has experienced as an adult and/or it could go back to what took place when they were growing up. Maybe this was a time when they were abused and/or neglected.
If one can relate to this, and they want to change their life, it might be a good idea for them to reach out for external support. This is something that can be provided by a therapist or a healer.
