Wanting A Ritual For Calling Your Power Back?
This is from my friend, the highly Piscean & genius Marcella Kroll and it is SUPER APT for this Full Moon in Capricorn week. Sometimes we don’t even realize it but by obsessing and fixating on something/someone – even it is righteous rage or a sane love affair, we’re eroding our strength.
Full Moons like this one – opposite Mars and pre a Mars-Pluto smackdown mid-month, are about power. Even things that you think have nothing to do with “power” this week are ALL about that.
We give our power away when we say yes to the things we want to say no to. As well as when we say no to things we want to say yes to. Giving our power away can wreak havoc on our self-esteem, confidence, and mojo. You may feel that you don’t have a choice in some situations, because you need the job, it’s your family or your partner, and you feel like you don’t want to rock the boat. Perhaps it’s something more intense, like a traumatic situation that you keep replaying, a fight, or feeling guilty or bad for not doing what you thought you should have. Over a prolonged amount of time, the imprint of these situations can lead to depression, unhealthy partnerships, martyrdom, and repeated patterns of breaking down your confidence. I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to suffer!
Calling Your Power Back Does Not Mean You’re Ego-Centric
You can start to make changes that invite your personal power back, so you can stop harming your well being, and start living as a healthy powerful person. If you have a negative perception of being powerful, that might cause a bit of a problem. As you may fear to be a bully, a tyrant, or egocentric. If this is the case, you might want to reacquaint yourself with what it means to be powerful and a force for good. Be inspired by leaders, artists, activists, and others that own their power and do so with grace. I’m sure they were all scared, or nervous, but at some point, they had no choice but to just be themselves.
Calling your power back can be as simple or as ceremonial as you want it to be. A simple action could be you finally giving yourself permission to do something you have always wanted to do, but have put it off repeatedly because of fear. Now is the time! Write that book, take that class, sing that song in public, tell someone your dream. The domino effect will begin to trigger energy into your life, and more situations that allow you to express your self-empowerment in healthy ways will begin to show up.
Mars-Pluto Alignments Are Always About Power
Now if you want to get more ceremonial do the following. First, find a sacred space at home or in nature, where you will not be interrupted. If you want to light sage or burn incense or palo santo then please do. The more witchy the better. Call on your Guides, the Universe, Ancestors, a Power Animal, or Spirit (you can call who or whatever benevolent forces you like to work with to join you). Ask them to be present with you and witness as you boldly state. Please feel free to ad-lib and include names or the situation if it helps. Repeat as often and as necessary as needed.
“I now call my power back from anyone, any situation, belief, or event that has held it before now. I invite my power back with ease, grace, and gratitude, right now, and so it is.”
