We must learn to make a distinction between being powerless and owning our power. Sometimes we coming into situations we simply cannot fix no matter what we do. We may feel powerless over ourselves and over the situation. We may even feel that we are not capable of moving through a particular situation at all. This is a plateau that brings us into the place of surrender, which is actually where we find our POWER to move through our issues.
Once we accept that we are powerless over a particular situation we come into a peace within that allows us to tap into our internal and eternal strength. We give it over to Spirit and allow it all to just unfold over attempting to push and force an outcome. When we fully give-up is when we fully have the POWER to overcome.
We can not change other people in any aspect. They will believe what they believe and do what they do until they come into their own awareness of truth. We can not change the fact that something happened, it happened. We must merely begin to deal with the circumstances and the fall out of it and begin the repair and/or healing process. This is for both people and things that happen in our experience.
When we reach that place where we have tried everything we thought we should do to force or control change we have come into the place where powerlessness gives over to our true POWER. We are no longer operating in our own mental strength. WE have taken ourselves out of the equation because we realize that we are not able to do something of ourselves.
This is the true process of letting go and allowing Spirit to move on our behalf.
You are not trapped or stuck. You are at a plateau where you have to literally jump off the cliff and know that Spirit is going to catch you while you are free-falling. You know it so well in your soul that you can literally enjoy the experience of the fall itself because you are relaxed in the knowing that Spirit is doing the necessary work to make all that seems out-of-order be back in order. The truth is that there is only order in the Universe. We have merely been attempting to change the order or process through our own mental state over allowing the flow of the Universe to bring us into a perfect resolution to our situation in peace.
You have God-Given POWER that is never powerless over anything. When we are at a state where we have pushed so hard and nothing seems to be working, we are forced to surrender. In most cases, we are not even consciously aware that in this surrender we are literally giving up on the resolution. It is through our moving forward and either releasing the control it has on our mind or simply forgetting about it all together that things seem to simply work out on their own. When we literally take our mind off of the problem, we actually come into the POWER of the solution naturally.
The middle ground of self-care lies between the two extremes of controlling others and allowing them to control us. We can walk that ground gently or assertively, but in confidence that it is our right and responsibility. Let the POWER come to walk that path. ~Melody Beattie, The Language of Letting Go
It doesn’t seem to make conscious sense that we come into true POWER when we are POWER-less. However, this is the true process of letting go of our issues and giving them over to Spirit. We have the POWER to be free of the issues when we simply realize that we have no human power to fix or change the situation or other people. We realize that our true POWER is in relaxing in the peace and giving up the idea that we change or make anything happen. We ride the wave of our true POWER to live L.I.F.E. and to live it more abundantly.
