Upon rising each morning we begin a new cycle. It’s fresh and the velocity at which it travels holds much optimism. We have every opportunity to shape how we want it to flow. We HAVE the power to do that. Many of us forget how strong the power is that lies within. We allow others to take our power or we fall into detrimental patterns in which deplete our strength. This negative framework is self-inflicted. It’s an internal war in which the enemy is ourself. We've lost the courage to stand up for what we truly believe in. The destruction that has been caused from our lack of power transpires into the vicious cycle. This downward spiral finally drops us down at our bottom. Once there, we can't go anywhere but up. In order to rise we have to fight and protect. The biggest battle is the one within ourself. Once we take back the power which we’ve let go we have the courage to stand up to ourselves and to others. We have the strength to know not only what we want but what we truly need. Many of us want things in life but the question is do we really need them? This is where we get tripped up and fall back into the downward spiral. We have to really listen to what our body/soul needs, not wants. Once we tune into this frequency can we begin a new cycle. One in which allows us the freedom to create a positive and healthy flow of energy.
