From Over Powering to Empowering
Power Struggles are situations of Feeling/Being Over Powered or having Power Over someone
Ask yourself: How has power been an issue for you?
When we feel Over Powered we are not stepping into our full power; and we are usually feeling less than or less confident Somehow we might be holding back our energy.
When we Over Power others we are usually feeling less than or less confident Somehow we might be holding back our energy.
The key is to look at areas of your life where you are; or were not able to fully step into your power, fully engaged or not feeling confident.
You may also have to look back to Family of Origin situations and experiences where perhaps you were not listened to; not allowed to speak up or fully express.
Perhaps also to issues of being over criticized; yelled at, and sometimes hit or other forms of imbalanced and abusive behavior.
The Feelings and situations of being/feeling Over Powered or having to Over Power stem from Self- Esteem issues. If looked at from a healing perspective these types of situations point to a new level of awareness having the potential to emerge to facilitate a deeper healing.
These challenges are a way of the inner psyche wanting to balance and re-balance oneself for more wholeness, and to move out of previous limited perceptions. These perceptions, beliefs or roles might have been life-enhancing in the past, but the situation of being/feeling Over Powered or having Power Over are pointing to an area and a need for healing.
As more parts of the psyche are integrated we move from power over or over powered into empowerment.
