what happens when the power stops leaking?

it’s easy to pathologize the symptoms of embodying your power.

If you were used to the slow leak in your power source, you might assume something was wrong when you sealed the leak.

It would take some time to get used to the new version of yourself.

The way of living associated with sealing up the doorway that was open for so long, spilling out energy, would take some time to adjust to.

When you stop relying on sources out there — when you start to rely upon the energy within for answers — the power you begin to access, & build up within you can feel discombobulating.

And this world offers a plethora of options to pin the tail on pathologizing this new, full bodied power experience.

Truth is, if you’ve been living a certain way and then begin to live a new way, it will take some time to get used to how it feels.

It is easy to label something as bad or wrong if you aren’t used to it yet.

It is easy to feel overwhelmed when you get access to the full voltage, after you’ve been surviving on a half charge most of your life.

It’s harder to be aware than it is to pathologize.

Don’t be too quick to try to shut down how you feel. It’s just the rumblings of the new — you’re gaining full access to the power of you.
