FIND YOUR POWER
Kiana Ng Yoga
Stepping into my power has been a huge eye opener for me.
It’s showed me that I have the power to do anything I set my mind on, that I have the power to control my reactions and responses, to stand up for myself and shine BRIGHT, speak my opinion, own my truth and who I am, and that I have the power to let go of influences while being an influencer.
I didn’t realize that my personal power was missing from my life. I’ve always been ambitious with a very strong will, but I mistook that for personal power. I thought that personal power just meant my ability to go out there and get it, but it’s SO much more than that. It’s feeling like you’re on top of the world where no one can touch you… But without ego. There’s no need to dominate, but an energy of confidence and being able to stand in who you are so strongly that you can’t be swayed. It’s being able to stand your ground without feeling guilty, shameful, or embarrassed for doing it.
Let me tell you about one of my experiences that really helped me reclaim my power…
I’m not the type to get anxiety attacks. I never did when I was a kid, or as a teen. And to be honest, the first time I had one, I didn’t even know that that was what it was until I thought about it later. But over the past couple of years, I noticed a recurring situation that always seemed to draw out my anxiety. It made me feel like I had no control over the outcome, like I was powerless, helpless, and so small. It made me feel like I was being walked all over. Every time this situation occurred, I noticed that I responded to it better and better (the anxiety attacks becoming shorter and shorter). Finally, in the latest episode, there came a point where I was like, “Ok Kiana. That’s enough.” And then I stopped. I had forgotten that I control my reactions. I had forgotten that I am the only person with the power to control how I live my life, and how I feel while doing it. I had forgotten my personal power. So after reflection and A LOT of journaling, I let go of worry, stress, and any anxiety around the situation because I knew that it would unfold as it should beautifully and in the mean time, I will choose how I am going to respond to the current situation. You might not have the power to control what comes at you, but you have the power to control how you respond to it.
So this month, I encourage you to reflect on yourself and your life to notice where you need to reclaim your power, where you need to step up, what you need to let go of, and how you can monitor your reactions and responses.
