The Seven Empowerments are seven key priciples which—when you actively apply them to your life—will transform your world and the relationship you have with yourself, with other people, and with essentially everything you experience and perceive, into an empowering and life-giving experience.
They are called “Empowerments” because this is what they will do for you when you use them. Situations that you once found disempowering will no longer rob you of your energy and power—rather all situations in your life will serve as a source of power and leave you more empowered than before the situation arose or was faced and experienced.
To be disempowered is to slip into a state that is no longer true to who and what you are. This brings about a state of misperception which results in a loss of power. Power is energy or life-force that you have in your sphere of influence or under your control. In reality it is not actually possible for you to lose or gain power per say. Rather, what happens is that you can let it move beyond the “reach” of your conscious awareness. This happens primarily as a result of you forgeting the Truth of who and what you really are in any given moment, situation, relationship, circumstance, or experience, or even in your entire life. Your true nature is that you are a Divine Being.
When this power leaves your reach or conscious influence it slides into the hands of intelligent, other-wordly, non-physical forces. It might help to think of these forces as entities or life-forms. The Kahuna shaman-priests of Ancient Hawaii called them Malu which means “life-taking spirits”. These other-worldly Beings will hold and use your power (your life-force) until such time as you are ready to claim it back. Because this power doesn’t ultimately belong in their hands they will play out and co-create various dramas in your life in order to bring about an experience of pain. This pain is a gift, for it is what enables you—if you are willing and ready—to recognise what is taking place in this moment—that you are facing a moment of disempowerment—and then reclaim your power.
The Seven Empowerments will greatly accellerate this process of reclaiming your power. In numerous Native American and South American cultures this process has also been referred to calling back your Spirit or reclaiming the fragments of Self.
