"The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away."
- Pablo Picasso -
When do you feel most powerful? How do you engage with your power? No matter our age, gender, cultural background, or profession, we each have access to unlimited potential when we uncover access to the power source within.
We enter this experience with gifts that may be expressed through our divine essence. However, it is only when we make a conscious effort to discover, explore, and share these gifts that we reach our fully-empowered potential. What gifts are lying dormant in you waiting for expression? How can we each better utilize our gifts to be of service to our communities and to this planet?
Reflecting upon these questions, we may come to realize that no one gift is more vital or better than another. Each individual's combination of unique talents, skills, and abilities is equally valuable - understanding that when we share our gifts, it inspires and enables others to discover and share theirs.
By choosing to live life to its fullest in this way, we are effectively contributing to a more powerful, authentic, and awakened humanity.
September Haʻawina Hawaiʻi | Mana - Power
The Hawaiian word mana translated literally means power, defined as "the power of the elemental forces of nature embodied in an object or person." Mana signifies the highly individualized and unlimited life energy that flows through all things.
As we each work on cultivating our unique abilities, we align with this mystical, invisible force that animates everything in our universe. The more we tap into our individualized mana, the more empowered we become to create.
In many cases, this practice of coming into alignment catapults us into experiences of change and transformation that shake us to our core and challenge old, outworn beliefs and destructive thought patterns. We may also find that certain people, places, and experiences must be let go to step fully into our power.
Although it may seem challenging at times, trusting and letting go are necessary processes to activate the path to expression of our highest, most powerful self.
