Hello, and welcome. My name is Folake Bee. And this is the inner power game, a series of podcasts for the free spirit. Soulpreneurs heartcentred entreprneuers and changemakers leading the New Age world. In today's episode, I am going to dive into why and how to activate our personal power with regards to our ability to assert our own freewill and make decisions that are better aligned with what we want our own values, our intentions for our lives, et cetera, et cetera. And I'm gonna dig into the indications that shows when we need to activate this personal power of us and share things from my own personal experience. In particularly, I want to look at the aspects of leadership, relationships, and wealth building, and link this into an activation of the feminine energy as the key for the transformation that we're looking for. And I really hope you enjoyed that less typing, I really want to introduce a concept, a different concept to the idea of personal power. And just for context, when I'm talking about personal power, and talking about our ability to, to almost a set our own will, in different situations, how our ability to make decisions, in alignment with our own values, and in the goals that we've set ourselves. And our ability to make a claim for, like us sovereign power, you know, taking actions in alignment with who we are not caring about what people think been able to create in ways that are really aligned with us as a person. So this is what I mean when I'm talking about personal power. And I feel that traditionally, this idea of personal power, and the way we've been, we've been taught to activate this personal power has mainly been based on the masculine energy side of things. So I want to bring a different perspective about how we can activate this personal power. And also the importance of actually thinking about this and making it a focus to activate this personal power, especially in the times that we leave right now, and bringing in a different dimension to how we do that. And for me, specifically, it's about using the feminine energy. So this is what I really want to explore on this episode. And, you know, I should say that this what I'm talking about this feminine energy, I am not specifically talking about, like a woman, you know, I'm not specifically talking about the female, I am just talking about an aspect of our energy, that is the feminine energy, that aspect of our consciousness, that is the feminine energy. And I'll mention that again. And again. So this podcast is about activating our personal power, looking specifically about how we can use the feminine energies side of things to really, you know, light up this power of ours. And I also want to bring it, you know, into things like how we hold better relationships in our lives, how we are better able to hold wealth, and also how we're better able to lead, you know, hold that leadership position in a work and also so self lead ourselves, self leadership. So this idea of personal power is something that in my own private life or for experience is really been a game changer. Because years ago, I was in a place where I really felt like I couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel. And no matter what I did, nothing was happening. And many people probably will be able to relate to this or you know, at one point in your life where you just feel like it's either You're trying and you're trying, and nothing is happening. Or perhaps maybe you feel this desire to achieve something, you have this big bowls and you have this, you know, big dreams, you have an intention to change your lifestyle to change your life to make it better for yourself or your children, to change your work environment, because you're not happy in that environment, or even to grow a business to transition from a job that you're not happy in into. actually create in your own business, it could be anything. And we feel that no matter how we try, things are not happening. Or sometimes it feels like we want to try so many things, but we do not have the resources to do those things. So it almost feels like a chicken and egg thing, you know, go round in circles, which one comes first, nobody knows. And it's just like this vicious circle. Now, for me, I feel personally that the one big thing that really helped break this circle where I could do things without waiting for this external resources, where I could break some of these patterns that that perhaps maybe I'd been repeating over and over again, without the external factors came down to this personal power, this activation of this personal power. And I think it's quite really obvious to see setting habits or setting things in our lives, where it's an indication that we need to hone in on our own personal power. And the few things and these are some of the things that you know, I felt at this stage that I'm talking about. So things like when we lose our confidence. So for me, this particular stage, in my life that I'm talking about, I had lost my my self confidence, like, I just lost the relationship that I was in, I had lost the business that I was running with my ex and my self, you know, who I was, was so attached to those two things. My my, whoo, I was a woman was attached to the business as a business owner, and being the being in that relationship. So when that those two things broke, I really lost my confidence. So this lack of confidence, like when we don't have this confidence in ourselves to do to do things, no matter what the environment is, no matter even if we have the money, if we have the resources, if we have the mentoring, etc, etc, if we still do not have the confidence in ourselves, if we are feeling unsure of ourselves, and we're feeling unsure of our own ability, this is like a big indication that, you know, we need to tune in to our own personal power. So for me at this phase, what I was saying was, even though I was trying to rebuild my life, and you know, I was trying to transition back into coaching, women in business, transition back into coaching men in tech, it wasn't really happening. Because I had lost that confidence in my ability to do that. I was so my, my my ability was so attached to the fact that, you know, I'm a business woman and I have my own business. So, you know, because I'm doing it, I should be able to teach you. So with that, with that aspect of me gone, there was this the voice within going if you've lost your business, and you don't even have a business where you to then coach and mentor other people. And that was like a really quiet voice in my head that was really obstructing everything else. So there was a really big indication there that I had lost this confidence. And that, you know, getting that back came back to this personal power thing.
Folake Bee 9:53
So the big indication that I see. Especially, you know, when I then when I'm mentoring other people and I'm coaching other people is also like when we find that we're not able to make decisions, like when we struggle to make decisions in our life, when we struggle to be very decisive, this is usually a really big indication that we need to look into this personal power thing, you know, especially when we're running businesses, and not even in business, when we are in a work environment, especially when we are in leadership roles. I have supported CTOs and see hours in the past were like the you always see like a really a difference between CTOs or CEOs or senior managers that are able to make decisions, and the impact the hat that hat that's will have on the wider team, as opposed to, you know, a type of manager that is not able to make decisions, you just cannot get them to make a decision. It's like the fob, you have later later, somebody else, and then either the project just gets delayed things are not really moving. And, and then the stuffs, you know, the team starts to feel demoralised. So you know, that, again, I feel, it's a really strong indication that we need to like hone in on our own personal power. There are other things that I see that are very much linked in to personal power, and things like just even our ability to hold our own energy, when we are in the presence of other people. When we are, you know, working with a team, when we are with our partners, when any, you know, any situation, our ability to hold our energy. So, for example, when I mentor, perhaps coaches, one of the things that I may hear is that they get some, they get drained by certain type of clients, or even, perhaps maybe you even identify with, there's like, as you go to work, there are certain people or work that really just drain you. And when we start to get this off of getting drained a lot, that means, again, for me, it's something to do with how we are holding our own energy, which is also very much linked to our own personal power. So this ability to set boundaries, this ability to hold our energy is very much linked to our personal power in this are really, really big stuff that we can do within ourselves, that really transforms everything else. And you know, the main thing is, like all, you know, most of us were working, and we're running a business because we have this big goals, and we have this big intentions. And we have this dream that we want to bring into fruition. And if you're finding that you always have these goals and these dreams and this project that you're starting, or you're never starting them, you're never really achieving those goals, you're never really feeling fulfilled. This is also a really clear indication that you need to hone in on your own personal power. Because somewhere that is somewhere along that timeline, there's an inability to really be very clear on what you want to be really big clear on your intentions to really see it and feel it very clearly with conviction, because that is what leads us to achieving that thing. So if you're constantly finding that you're never able to like break through this threshold of growth, again, I'll bring you have like, Come on, let's come back in, let's come back into this personal power. And another one is about like when we actually and this is a big one, this is a big one for most people. This fear of failure in business fear of failure or in work, you know, it's either we get a new job and automatically we start to think, Ah, there you know that impostor syndrome thing will show up. It's like, I'm going to fail at this. I'm not going to be able to do this. And to an extent we all have this fair whenever we're expanding out of our comfort zone. But this one is it's a little bit different. Like if you're constantly finding that you're getting If you're getting really constricted, then in, you're getting into perhaps maybe panic attacks, anxiety, because of this fear of failure, or even fear of rejection, or fear that people might not like you, etc, etc, this also comes down to this personal power. So, like in business, for example, like a few examples that I see, like, people are not showing up, you know, this fear of showing up online, because they're worried about what people will think about them and in about what the right and people might think that they are, I don't know, whatever it is, this comes down to our own personal power, because as soon as we activate this power within us, we start to care less about what other people think, you know, and this, you know, also just transformed everything. So, like, the more we activate this personal power of ours, the more we're able to really stand up for ourselves and really just show up, you know, for who we are, where we truly are without really caring, or we care less what other people think. So, these are really strong indications. Like if you can relate to any of this stuff, these are the things that we almost need to pull back to is like the foundation, it's like, what makes the house stands like, really, really strong, you know, because otherwise without this stuff, it's like, what's that saying? Like? Is it a castle on sand, like, you know, yeah, we're just building a castle on sand that can easily just be eroded. So for me, activating this personal power, activating this foundation, really transforms everything. And this stuff, this sort of work, does not need external resources. These are things that are already within us, this is like an energy activation, that when this energy is activated, things start to transform in a whole new way. And for me, if you ever hear me talking about inwards, outwards, like creating from the inner, to transform the outer, this is the sort of things I'm talking about. Traditionally, the way we've been taught to activate this personal power. As I feel this is my opinion, and this is my experience. So far, I really feel that the way we've been taught so far has been based on the masculine energy aspect of things, you know, we've been going through the education system, and then getting into into the workplace, we've been taught that we need to be assertive, you know, we need to be assertive, we need to be ambitious, and we need to take action. And if you're assertive, if you're ambitious, and if you take action, those are the ways that you make things really happen. And yes, this is true, like, you know, we need to be assertive with how we communicate with how we present the things that we want, in a way that people can, can relate to. So we get the things that we want, yeah, we need to be ambitious. By setting goals and working towards those goals, so we can move forward. And yes, we need to take action to make those things happen. Because without taking actions,
Folake Bee 19:04
nothing really happens in our so all those things are really really important set assertiveness, ambition, ambition, the drive the action, they are all very, very important. And for me, those type of actions is very much also aligned with the masculine energy. So we know that already a one of the reasons why so many people, you know, are living in this lifestyle of overwhelm and burning out, okay, we need a balance between the masculine and our feminine energy side of things. And don't forget, like I said at the beginning, when we're talking about the masculine, we're not per se talking about a man and we're not talking about the feminine energy I'm not specifically talking about a woman or female, I'm more talking about these two aspects of our consciousness, these two aspects of our creativity, and finding ways to use both of this energy to create a more balanced and harmonious lifestyle. So, again, I feel traditionally, the way we've been encouraged to really go for things using this like to be ambitious, you need to be action driven, you need to be assertive, you need to go Go, go, you need to go get it, you know, get out there, do it, that energy, spin the way most people know to achieve things note to get the voice heard, and etc, etc. So we find like in work space, specifically. And, you know, let's look at like male dominated environment, like tech, for example, which I know so well, there is this, what I'll call it a bug. Right now, where there are so many women, for instance, do not feel that they can shine naturally. Because the ways that they're supposed to shine, the ways that are seen as the way to get things are not really aligned with their natural way of being. So we want to, I really feel that we want to start to approach this personal power from a different angle. And what I want to do as well on this podcast is to bring in these three elements that are very crucial when it comes to high achievers, high achievers, people in the work environment, or people that our growing business, in that aspect is the relationships, how we hold wealth, and how we also lead this leadership skills. And I want to really use and show you how the feminine energy can be a really crucial way to activate our personal power to hold these three areas of our lives, like a feminine energy, what characteristics do we associate to feminine energy, you know, things like our ability to tap into our intuition, that emotional ability, that ability to connect with people on an on an emotional level, you know, our natural ability to be nurturing, these sorts of stuff are other things that are very much linked to the feminine energy, the ability to to lean back and receive, so that we're not always pushing, pushing, pushing to make things happen, you know, those are the things that are that are, we would naturally think that are associated to the feminine energy. And when we look at some of the things that I mentioned about as clear indications of us not being in our personal power, like take the self confidence, for example. And I mentioned about like how, for me one of the key things when I couldn't make things happen. Those years when I was really trying trying, was really linked to my lack of self confidence after all the breakup, for me, I really feel that the thing that changed it all with the self confidence thing was working on this feminine energy, because by really honing in on my feminine energy, I was able to tap into a resources that was already within me a resources that was not dependent on any external factors. resources, like you know, that inner wisdom, my my level of intuition and my ability to to really relate to people on a on an emotional level, so that I understand people and they can really understand me like that is a kind of a what I call this unshakable self confidence and, you know, if, if, if you're a woman listening to this podcast and you're like, Okay, I really want that unshakable inner confidence that comes from wisdom that comes from intuition, I actually have a free five days will meditation practice that hundreds of women have taken. And even till today, I still hear people go, thou was just amazing. And, you know, that was. So that's such a powerful tool that you can use, and it's free, and you're really just activating something that's already within you. So if you, if you connect with me on it, for example, and just ask me for the, for the five days one activation practice, I will send you the link. So that's about, you know, building self confidence, but from this feminine energy, and you know, for men as well, you can exactly do the same thing, you can look at practice to tap back into your own level of wisdom, your own way, have really been very intuitive to activate this, this thing. And this kind of activate activation is so grounded, and gives you such a strong foundation that I feel the masculine aspect of our energy cannot give us because the feminine energy is like the foundation, the masculine for me feels like the other side of things is the external aspect of things. So then I spoke about, like how, you know, naturally, we've been told that, in order to really be powerful, you've got to be very assertive, and that assertiveness usually come from this masculine approach to personal power. But, you know, we can also tune in tune this personal power from our feminine energy, because with the feminine energy, when we work with a feminine energy, it gives us this calm, and this grounding that this calmness and this grounded, approach to life, that is very different to the pushy, pushy, pushy, or the aggressive way. And this kind of way of being actually attracts people to us, like fools people talk to us, instead of like pushing them away. And then you know, when even if we look at things around, like that fear, you know, that fear and I talk about like this fear of this fear that comes from what people think of us this fear that comes from failure, etc, etc. Even this, like when we start to work with our feminine energy, that starts to diminish, diminish, because there is a kind of power that comes from this inner wisdom and this intuition, where we feel so grounded, and that grounding comes from our inner knowing, it comes from our ability to, to, you know, know right from wrong, to work with discernment to to be guided from something that's so much bigger than us. This comes from this, this feminine energy aspects of us. When He even comes down to like, a something that you would feel that it's so masculine, like, our ability to deal with situation to be very resilient. This again, I feel the feminine energy is a grounding for it. Because when we're being like when we can like
Folake Bee 28:54
manoeuvre to challenge challenges and we can, we know that we can hold any aspect of our lives, this is coming from this, this, this, this grounding, of like being able to embrace our emotions, being able to, you know, embrace other people in our environment without taking on the energy, being able to, to nurture ourselves fast before we try and nurture other people and not feeling guilty about about this. This is a feminine aspect of us. You know, you would have heard that saying of like, you cannot give from an empty cup. And most of us are trying to give from an empty cup. And this is where this overwhelming this burnout again, comes into into play. You know, we're trying to help other people and we don't even know how to help ourselves. We complain That's we're not happy in our relationships, that our partners are not giving us what we want, when we don't know what we want, we no longer know what makes us happy. That has come from us operating too much in our masculine way, it's always been the outer in the pushing out in the pushing out. Or when we come back, and we activate this feminine aspects of our energy, we learn to almost, you know, to fill our own cup to know what, what's we want to know what is right for us to be able to give that to ourselves, without the guilt and without the shame. And, you know, on this journey, and we're connecting more to this to our inner selves, and we are activating this level of, of intuition, we start to also develop different ways of personal growth. I find that when I'm working with clients, even clients that you know, when we start working, they say things like, they're not really comfortable with like meditation, they don't have the patience for meditation, they don't have the patience for journaling, they're too busy, busy, busy, they can never find a time, I find that as they like activate this, this aspect of their energy, they start to use like meditation, journaling and self reflection, as a really powerful tool for growth. Regardless of whether they're a CEO, CTO, like a six figure, business owner, seven figure business owner, this, these tools start to become a game changer for how they're making things happen. It's time to slow down and start to use more of the energetics to create bigger results, which means they're creating without the usual, overwhelm with other usual the burnout. So, like I said, you know, it is, I'm not really saying that it's either one or the other. No, both the feminine energy and the masculine energy, you know, should work together, we should, we should use both together in really stepping into our power. But traditionally, we've been taught to more calm from the masculine aspect of things. And this is why so many people are going into overwhelm and burnout. And we want to start to practice a different way of, of really holding our power, staying in our power, and, and creating and creating life. So let's look at like, creating life in terms of like relationships, creating life in terms of like wealth and creating lives in terms of like leadership. So talking about leadership to start with, because this is one that I have personally experienced a lot of overwhelm, and a lot of burning out and a lot of stress in work environment. Due to the leadership role that Rudy Shipra do to the leadership style of, of whoever was leading that team. And, you know, I really want to talk about the importance of incorporating this feminine leadership in our, in our business in, in our work environment in if you're leading huge organisations to really start to think about this. And when I'm talking about feminine leadership, I'm not talking about like women leading or more talking about the style of leadership, like how we, how we adapt our style of leadership to the environment that we're in the people that are working with us or working for us, the type of people in that team, like how we are intuitively been guided to lead, lead our teams lead our organisation lead our project, so I'm not really talking about like, you know, women leading I'm more talking about the style and the skills that we are using in our leadership. And, you know, most of us, I know for me, particularly, I have been in organisations where, you know, whoever is leading that team, as being a very much more masculine driven kind of leader and not even maybe the person per se. It could even be the overall organisation called char is very much more masculine driven. So we say things like, you know, very hierarchical structures and aggressive way of achieving results. And there is no empathy at all, in the organisation like you cannot really express how you really feel, even though the culture might say we listen to our team, and we're open for discussions, and if you're not happy, like, let us know about it, but yet, nobody really goes up and go, I'm not happy, maybe a few people, but people do not feel safe, to be able to really, to be able to really express how they feel in their organisations, and then people end up leaving, I mean, really, really good people will end up leaving those organisations, regardless of how much they're getting paid. But when we start to really like consciously try and bring in this feminine leadership into our organisations into the way we manage into the way we lead our ourselves, the way we lead our team, etc, etc, you might find that things such a change, because the the type of environment that we start to build is an environment where people feel a little bit a little bit valued, and they feel that they can be heard. And because of that, they're also more motivated to, to do a great job, because with a feminine energy, it are the feminine energy, the characteristics of that, as a leader is that you are more, you're using more of your intuition, you are being more empathetic towards the needs of the people around you. And like you have this high level of emotional intelligence, you know, which sometimes is missing, when somebody is too much in their in in their masculine X, the masculine is just, it's just to focus and to driven to tap More into this, this other other side of things like the empathy, the intuition, and cetera cetera, because for the feminine energy it requires for us to almost slow down to almost stop and feel things. And when we're more driven in the masculine, we really don't have time for that. So it's not that Edo maybe we don't care about our team, or we don't care about people. We just don't have time to do those things. And I've seen amazing managers like managers that are naturally you can see that they're heart centred, and they've got good intentions. But because they're so busy, busy, busy, busy, busy, busy, they no longer are able to connect to their team, they no longer are able to really see what is going on, because there's so much more in that masculine driven phase. And this applies to both men and women. Okay. And, you know, this way we really need to look into, into this because I read, now, I've forgotten the stats, there is a stats I saw online about high achievers,
Folake Bee 38:35
like some ridiculous percentage, like, I don't know, 67%, or almost 70% of like, people that are classified as high achievers having like heart attacks, you know, very much more prone to heart attacks, much more prone to, to, to burn out. Because, again, they hardly stop, they just like, go, go go. So when we start to consciously make an effort to promote this feminine leadership in our organisation, we might see things start to change, okay, we might see more diversity in our leadership, we might start to bring in a different kind of like people, you know, into our teams, we might start to see a better performance within the team, we may start to see more collaborations within Team, etc, etc. And parts. We need to consciously Look at this. And then when it comes to the relationships that we're building, so even in this organization's as you're bringing in, you know, more people and you're finding your retention rate is getting better as you tap More into this feminine leadership. You're going to find that the relationships between the relationships within ourselves and the people around us. And again, this is not just work this is like, in our own private environment with our own partners, when we started tapping into this feminine aspect of our energy to stay in our power, we find that, you know, our relationships gets better. I see it, for example, like even in my clients where, you know, when I start working with a client, some of them there would be at that point where their relationship with their partners is almost over. Like, they will actually at that point, for some people at that point where they're like, I can't do this anymore, and they're ready to walk out, they're ready to leave that relationship, and they never feel like it can be fixed. You know, they like literally that relationship is over and done with. And I know, I've even worked with so many clients that that relationship can be fixed. In fact, for me, it's a very foundation, our relationships, you know, especially when we are, you know, we are married, and we are in that sort of like relationship, and we're living in the same house with that person, it's very important that that is a healthy relationship. Because without that, we really can't fly. So many people would have heard me say that, you know, we need that beautiful relationship to be able to fly. So the more I work with a client, and the more they start to work on their feminine energy, they would start to see that their relationship gets better. And, you know, right now, as I'm doing this podcast, this is one of the biggest things that, you know, I am so happy about with, with my all my current clients at the moment, the type of relationships that they have, with their partners is just so beautiful. And for some of them, this is not how it has been. So this feminine energy, this activation of this feminine energy to step into our power almost activates a kind of energy that allows us to be more open, that allows us to be more authentic in, in our needs, in how we show up in how we take actions in how we relate to the people around us. And also like allows us to really create deep connections with with our partners, deeper connections with our colleagues, and just brings that sort of a different level of fulfilment in our lives, that may be missing for so many people. You know, for so many people, it's like a case of get up, go to work, spend whatever all your time at work, come home, overwhelmed, you even connect with with with your partner, you get up again, and you go to work, and that fulfilment is missing for so many people. And you know, like, we cannot continue to live like this. So a way forward is like this embracing of this feminine energy, in relation in our relationships, so that we are able to better communicate, we're able to better deepen our connections, that we're able to live a more balanced approach to life and not just a life of like, Go Go, go, go get go get make money, come home, be tired. Like, for me that just feels like an empty life like it just like this no way that we were born to this world to get up and work. And that's it. Like, what is the point? What is the point and that's what so many people are doing right now living in this extreme side of the masculine energy. So we want to start bringing things back we want to start bringing things back into ourselves into our grounding. And this really comes down to reactivating this feminine energy and then also like when it comes to like, wealth and money I also see a link here when it comes to wealth and money and our ability to actually hold wealth because let's go back to it again. You know, I already said like this feminine energy is associated with with with intuition. I didn't actually mention creativity like the feminine energy is the creative lifeforce. It's the energy that allows us to be very, very creative. The more we activate our feminine energy, the more creative we become, with how we live our life. It means that we get To ideas, we get, like ideas that are authentically ours, we find different ways of attracting wealth. And we are also able to hold that wealth. And, you know, there's two points that I really want to, like make the section of like, you know, wealth holding money. And this feminine energy, there is this idea that and I've heard so many people talk about it of, you know, the feminine makes, like the magic money, and I truly, truly believe that the masculine makes the money that are there is very logical. So think about like a man, Frank, let's just take the man because there is talk about a man. So like the man in, in most relationship, let's, let's just go to gender for a second, okay. So like the man in a relationship, most times, not always, most times, would be the person that you know, very conscious about making ends meet, like the man or, like, we're gonna, like, make sure that you know, there is you're, we're provided for, we can pay the bills, and we can pay the mortgage or the range, and that, you know, there is money to buy the food, etc, etc. It's not always the case, but major to $1.80 of the time. So, you know, the man is very logical, and their needs are very, like, very, very basic, they're, like, you know, you gotta provide, I've got to be able to provide, or we've got to be able to meet our needs. And then and that is very, very linked to the masculine energy, the masculine energy is very logical, is very, like need space, then the feminine energy, and now we're gonna go to the woman, it's more like, cool. flowy. And like, and like magic, and like, the one beauty and the one experience is and, you know, like, it's all like, oh, flow flow flow, and the woman would go and shop because she felt like shopping, or she saw something so beautiful. And she went and bought it, and the man is, like, why would you spend so much money on that little bag it was or something like that. And that's because that's the, that's the energy of the, of the, that's the feminine energy. So when it comes to like making money, it's exactly the same thing. When it comes to us tapping into the feminine energy, the feminine energy, because it's not the feminine energy is not illogical, the feminine energy is magical. And because it's magic for you also means that you can make money in ways that are neurological in ways that feels magical in ways that do not prescribe to church, traditional method or in ways that you could not foresee. And this is why when we start to activate this feminine energy, like we could, like, you know, you you, you maybe would make like loads of money, because that creative juice is activated. So our ability, I feel our ability to make ridiculous amounts of money, or to make more money than is logical, or to, like,

do this things that we call quantum leap, or, you know, stepping to a different level of wealth that you couldn't even foresee comes from the feminine energy. And, like I said before, both as to be you know, as to be imbalanced, the feminine energy and the masculine energy, I'm not saying that, you know, it has to be in siloed, like, one, as opposed to the other, we need both of them. But when it comes to money and above, usually people don't think about the feminine energy as, as, as as something that allows them to actually be able to bring in more money and also to be able to hold more wealth. So, you know, even when you look at the characteristics of the feminine energy, this characteristics of it being nurturing, and being nurturing allows us to actually have a loving relationship with our money. And this can involve like letting go of limiting beliefs around money and letting go of like negative emotions that we hold around money and replacing that with a more positive a positive energy and more empowering beliefs. These are all feminine aspects of of personal development is that all feminine way or of personal power, like working on your limiting beliefs, clearing blocks, clearing negative energy. Stepping into this empowerment, you hear people talking about affirmations, these are all feminine. These are all feminine ways of activating our personal power in the shift in this mindset, the shifts that can happen when we work on this approach, and really harpaz Not just make money, which you know, the masculine can do, are also to like, you know, to hold it in a very beautiful way to hold it in a way that feels joyous to hold it in a way that feels fulfilling, to hold it in ways that just feels more much more beautiful, than if we were just now masculine, just making the money, making ends meet, paying the bills, like, you know, make the money, pay the bills, make the money, pay the bills, like there is more to life, we want the beauty and we want the joy, and we want the fun, and we want the romance and you know, and all that stuff. And to do that, we really need to tune in into our feminine energy, this feminine energy to stay in our power to make a decision that, you know, we want this life to be more joyous, not just work and die. So when we're able to balance his masculine and his feminine energy, we create a more like a more balanced relationship with with our money. But for so many people making money has become such a masculine thing. We don't even put this feminine energy into the equation, we don't bring in this like our ability to be compassionate, to be to be receptive, when you're in your feminine energy, as a link to bringing in more abundance and holding more wealth in our lives, we have just lost that. Which is not good. So to summarise, and just, let's just try and like bring this all together, this idea around activation of our personal power, from activation of the feminine aspects of our energy. For me, I'm putting this forward because I think, traditionally, it's always been the case that we come from the masculine side of our energy and activating the feminine energy, it's as much and as important tool for us to activate our power to stay in our power. And if we can get the balance right, between the feminine and the masculine, our lives are going to be more harmonious, you know, and there are so many other ways that we can activate our personal power. You know, on this series on this podcast, specifically, I'm more focusing on this two aspects of our energies, the feminine and the masculine energy, and a call for us to use them in balance. But the key thing here is that if we are in a position where we are trying to move our lives forward, we are trying to create growth, we are trying to uplevel any aspects of our life or business, and perhaps maybe we're filling blocks stuck or in we just want to accelerate that in our own power, then this personal power thing is so key. And if this personal power thing is so key, then my call is to look at the feminine energy as a foundation. And we top it up with the, the masculine energy. And like I said, you know, like the personal power is, is a way to make things happen because it's all within us already. This ability to be self aware, to have self confidence, to have this powerful self esteem, to be compassionate. And to have a sense of purpose in life, to to be true with oneself to be as at ease with oneself, to be able to connect with our inner resources. This foundation is so key and so important. And if we are missing this in our personal development in our growth if you're going to find It's very hard to really to reach your goals to make intentions happen to manifest to, you know, to hold on to whatever results you've always got in the past to hold on to wealth, to hold on to relationships, you might find that you get stuff, but then you lose it or you make moves forward, and then you find yourself back to square one, or they you're going round in circles, because the foundation this foundation does self awareness, self confidence, self esteem, self compassion, wisdom, intuition, etc, etc, is missing. So for me, this is the foundation, this is the foundation, this is the key to a beautiful life, this is the key to, to, to staying in your power. And the first thing is our activation of our feminine energy, and then we'll top it up with our masculine energy. And yes, you know, there are other other ways to tap into the personal power like, like educating ourselves and having access to resources and in so many other things. But what I am addressing here is something that we can start from within us like working on our inner and using our inner to create our outer. Because for me, I still truly believe that everything external of us, is a reflection of our inner world. And if you can work on your inner and you create a beautiful meadow, a beautiful garden inwards that is strong, and and expansive, you will start to see your reality, much that energetically. If you're listening to this right now. And you're thinking, okay, I can definitely do with activating some of these things that for like are spoken about, like activating your personal power. So you can build a strong foundation, to your creativity to your leadership skills, to how you hold wealth and how you build better relationships, then I would invite you to contact me and ask me about the inner power game sanctuary, which is a community and a coaching programme that we have to help you understand yourself in all your mysterious and magical feminine ways. Like the sanctuary is a place to activate this feminine mistake, this feminine leadership

And also you're going to be doing that with a soul tribe of other women who are also on their own transformational journey.
