Recently I had the pleasure and privilege of being part of the Empowered Mamas Summit, a FREE online event, organized by the incredible Carmen Rosas. (You can check it out here: http://tinyurl.com/yc92b5k4).
During my interview, Carmen asked me what being empowered means to me. I think that’s a really interesting question and something that not many people think about. My answer to Carmen might surprise you because to me it means something different to me than it does to most people. When people hear the word “empower” most tend to think of something along the lines of “being in control.”
And while there is truth in that, to me being empowered means something quite different actually. To me it means surrendering; surrendering to the care of the Universe. One of my favorite quotes is from a Course In Miracles and in it says, “If you knew who walked beside you on this path you have chosen you would never experience doubt or fear again.” How incredible is that? And so to me, that is what being empowered means. Surrendering completely to the care of the Universe and letting the Universe lead the way. In this way – and only in this way – can one achieve feel of being in control that they long to have.
I’d love to hear what being empowered means to you! Join the conversation on my closed Facebook group at facebook.com/groups/talkingshiftwithmsg.
