Well folks, it’s mighty late in the day to be posting the Monday Power Talk. Due to an unforeseen change of plans last week, I found myself in a situation where it was very difficult to get the space, quiet and freedom to make the video. (Or any of the recordings I was supposed to be doing last week.) So, I thought, I’ll do it on Monday. But it was a really busy day and time slipped away and I didn’t get to make the video.
And I was annoyed. With myself, and with my current, chaotic situation which means that I don’t have the space that I’m used to or the ability to work in the way I normally do. Upheaval in our personal lives so often impacts on us in this way, we have to find workarounds sometimes, we are often in a limbo space before we find ourselves once again grounded in our own routines. It’s a valuable lesson in how much I valued my routine before.
And I got to thinking some very powerless thoughts. Things like ‘why is everything so bloody difficult at the moment?’ I caught myself thinking this way and realised that I was in need of a power talk to watch, let alone making one! I knew I needed a serious talking to about my own thinking – it doesn’t do to give power away like that just because life is feeling uncomfortable. I know how powerful my thoughts are – what was I doing thinking ‘life is difficult’?? I know better than that.
So I am reminding myself of the power of every thought I think. I watched a great interview with Mastin Kipp recently and when he found himself in a small amount of space unable to work properly, he received guidance that the reason he was living in a little pool house at that time was ‘this room is the size of your faith’. This really resonated for me. Not that I want a massive space, but a more peaceful and independent one. Like Mastin, my current work and life situation has come about because of my own thinking and my own faith.
It’s time to start focusing once again on dreaming a better experience into being for myself. The next few power talks will be about overcoming obstacles and working in challenging situations. Yes, we will wobble, as I did for a little while today. But then, we will stop wobbling, choose powerful thoughts, and use the experience to create something better. Something powerful.
So, for today’s power talk, I’m going to share a video with you that many of you (especially those that are following me on the Become Powerful journey this year) will not have seen. It’s about dreaming a new world into being, and invites you to take on a 40 day challenge. I did this a year ago and it shook things up big time, it was a really powerful time of manifestation for me. Somewhere along the line I stopped with this active dreaming practice to focus on personal healing and power. But of course, working with both the internal healing and the external acts of creation is the ideal practice. What is more powerful than deliberately creating a new reality?

Hope you enjoy the challenge, and have a really powerful week!
