Power Outage

Yes I know I have been taking some time off from the writing of blogs. December was a busy month for me working full time at the Post Office and also since I have recently begun doing weddings I had several in December. 

Did I notice a change in energy after December 21st? Of course we all know that the world did not end that day, but was there a change in the earth's energy field? This is a loaded question. I had read what many who channel Angels or Higher Beings were saying. They said that the earth's energy was changing and that our energy fields were changing to match the new earth's energy field. I do know that I did come down with the flu or something like it which had not happened to me in quite some time, and I talked to many people who had experienced similar symptoms. I cannot say that this was a result of a changing energy field, but I cannot discount the idea either. Yes I experienced a change in some ways. What I experienced was a bit of a disconnect. It may have been the holidays and the busy rush at the Post Office and trying to coordinate schedules and thinking about gifts and holidays and weddings but I became a bit overloaded. I became somewhat disinterested in my normal routine. I had to force myself to meditate and when I did I fell asleep. I often skipped my normal workout routine. I ate too much. It took awhile for me to get back to myself.

The interesting thing is that at some point it was like the light that had gone off just came back on. It was exactly like when the power is out and then it comes back on. I am trying to remember exactly what day that happened but I guess the exact day is not that important. I thought I would share this in case any of you experienced a similar "power outage".

So recently while I was connecting with the Angels I asked the Angels to give me a phrase that would describe to me my theme for this year. It is interesting that they gave me the phrase "Embrace your power." At first I did not like this phrase. It seemed to me to imply power over others, or possibly achievement, or maybe it meant that I would be increasing my "power" to make me somehow superior or better. I ran this by a friend, who promptly suggested to me that true power comes from within, and when I am embracing my power, it empowers others as well, not unlike when you turn on a light, it shines for all who are within the general range of the light. She said it so well, I am going to quote her ( thanks Hali)

True power lights the world, expands & empowers others. When you embrace your power, you claim that part of yourself that is connected to God. Embracing your power is acknowledging your light. When you do that, you make it OK for others to do the same. Reminds me of that Marianne Williamson quote:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

"Embrace" is welcoming, accepting, and being receptive. 
"Your" is yours. You are already powerful, you're just claiming it.
"Power" is your birth right. It's your soul's light. It's who you are. 
I am not sure if I have completely embraced my power. I think it is a process. Some days I am completely connected and some days I am not. I have recently connected with some Highly Evolved Angels, (which is another blog altogether) and I feel connected and the messages are flowing and some days the light is completely off. And I tell you this to let you know that is okay to be disconnected sometimes. It is okay to not always be at the top of your game. And I am telling myself this as well.

If you have been feeling disconnected, lighten up on yourself. The power will come back on. Take a break. Rest a lot. Drink water. Enjoy your life. Laugh. When the light comes back on you will know it. And it is all good.


  1. I think what you say about being connected is an important piece of the power puzzle. Wow--good stuff!

    Also, it didn't even occur to me that there could be a connection between getting sick & the whole Dec. 21st thing. Ha! Now I can say I'm upgrading. ;-)

  2. Funny you should mentioned "lights off"...'cause I just had a similar feeling !
    At our home my sons and I are all believers in a new spiritual awakening coming...and yes...we all did get sick around the time of Dec 22nd-ish. I couldn't blog, I didn't feel myself, it was like I didn't care anymore.
    Then we got better...and it was like a "light" was switched on ! Blogging came back to me and ideas for our Tarot deck project came pouring in for me to share with my partner !
    You mention "Embrace Your Power" as a theme this year...(HaHa) I have to laugh because I just finished doing an audio log for the #8 Strength card...and it's all about POWER in it's many forms.
    Power can be a can be defensive as an electrical fence, keeping the "baddies" out and those you care for "in".
    Power can also be energy shared among others such as kindness, compassion, and concern.
    Power might be "the right action at the right time" : being there for a friend or family in need, whether it be words they need to hear, or a hug in times of sorrow.
    Power always needs responsibility and maturity to wield it effectively ! Those who know the power of a single negative comment try and avoid it's use altogether, while also remembering that even a single positive one can make someone's day !

    The point I believe your "Power" or "Strength" phrase is trying to convey is this: Connect with the Source of all Power...and you will always have much to share and give for everyone...even yourself !"

    May you be POWERFUL this year, Joy !!

    1. I love your comments, Eric, thanks. It's always good to know that others are experiencing the same things.

      Power is a multi-faceted word. You are right, it can have many applications. I am glad you mentioned the strength card. It came up in a reading yesterday and I remarked how similar the symbolism was to the theme.. embrace your power. The woman in the deck appears to be almost embracing the lion which is showing no aggression to her whatsoever. Power is really strength within.

  3. Hali.. as always I am amazed at your insight. Thanks for inspiring this whole blog and helping me to remember that power is not necessarily a bad thing.
