[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Power calls!

This resonated with me in a hug way I wanted to share this piece from
Danielle La Porte!

Take what you need and leave the rest!

Peace!!

LIFE. It's all energy. You know this.

When we give energy away willingly, intentionally, with positivity, we get
stronger. We become truer, purer, bigger. Power-full.

When we give our energy away unconsciously, under duress, as we are
victimized, or taken advantage of, when we over-give out of a sense of
deficiency or obligation, we ... don't get stronger. We constrict, we get
depleted, we start to stiffen from fear.

THIS IS HOW POWER RETRIEVAL WORKS:

You don't want to ever run into that person. The very thought turns your
stomach.Get bigger than it.... I call all of my power back to me now. I am
whole and complete.

The love songs that make you sick. Own the beauty. Sing it for someone
else. Take it back. I call all of my power back to me now. I am whole and
complete.

The scene of the crime, that words that broke your spirit, the time you got
rejected -- painful stuff ... those situations all have your energy inside of
them, waiting to be freed up and restored to you. I call all of my power
back to me now. I am whole and complete.

The places that you used to go to, but avoid now, extract your mojo out of
them...I call all of my power back to me now. I am whole and complete.

The years you tried to make it work, poring, praying, pleading, dancing on
egg shells ... take back every plea, take back every prayer -- take back every
time

you wished for it to be different than it was -- it's over now. I call all
of my power back to me now. I am whole and complete.

The incident that traumatized you. The blow that caused the wounds. Call
your strength home. Snap it back from the betrayer, from the abuser. Take
it all back. NOW. I call all of my power back to me now. I am whole and
complete.

Triggered agony, symbols of defeat, waves of anxiety, emotions of
disempowerment, memories that really hurt. Transmute it all into fuel. ...I
call all of my power back to me now. I am whole and complete.

For all the times you were quiet about deception and disrespect, quiet
about the life force that was being syphoned from your generous nature.
Speak your power into fullness. ...I call all of my power back to me now. I
am whole and complete.
