Stepping into Your Power: A Journey Beyond Self-Doubt
When you pause and reflect on your life, have you ever found places where you don’t feel powerful? Perhaps there are moments where doubts creep in, making you feel unstable and shaky. Bentinho Massaro explores these very questions in his teachings.
We often impose on ourselves a sense of insecurity. These insecurities can come in the form of self-doubt or feelings of unworthiness. Think about it: have you ever felt “shaky at the edge of your seat,” especially when you should be feeling exhilarated and powerful? This sense of power, the feeling of being “potent,” should be thrilling and exciting, not intimidating.
Many of us, including the individual Ben conversed with, have a deep-seated fear of being seen. This fear can be a residue from past experiences or societal expectations. It can manifest in fluctuating emotions, going from feeling high to sinking low quickly. Such fears often stem from a feeling of separateness, a belief that we are not valid, valuable, or worthy.
However, Ben highlights that we shouldn’t get accustomed to these negative feelings. Instead, he encourages us to imagine ourselves in a position of power, walking confidently and unshakably. Imagine walking into a room feeling like royalty and leaving with an even greater sense of purpose. If this imagery excites you, then you’re on the right track!
Challenges will arise. Emotions like grief or feelings related to justice may appear strongly. However, they can be opportunities for you to stand firm in your strength. Instead of dwelling on conflicts, use them as a mirror to step into your power. Visualize yourself in that empowering position and begin to embody that role.
Remember, once you step into that position of power, your old beliefs and fears seem trivial. Ben emphasizes that instead of working on resolving issues, we should focus on integrating the new, desired energy. When we shift our focus, we begin to exude a sense of power, joy, and expansion.
So, ask yourself today: Can you make being powerful your focal point? Let this be your journey of stepping out of self-imposed limitations and into your authentic, powerful self.
