Reclaiming Your Authority.


A lot can be said about 2020 to date and how it has pushed us all to go within and connect to parts of ourselves we may have forgotten.

This golden opportunity to grow and reflect is frightening for many who have, until now, pursued a life of busyness and 'doing' - sometimes as a means for identity and acceptance and sometimes as a means of avoidance.

However, as it is a collective year of 20/20 vision, we are no longer allowed the luxury of avoidance and eventually everyone of us will be forced to face our fears and limitations head on.


If there is pain and discomfort in this process, it is there for a reason, to remind us that holding on creates more pain than the process of letting go.

Yet how do we let go when our lives have become institutionalised to the point that we no longer recognise our own authority? What does that even mean?


When you are in a position where you are waiting for someone else to tell you what you can and cannot do, you have given up your authority.

When you no longer trust your inner voice, you have given up your authority.

When you live a life of fear of reprisals for speaking or living your truth, you have given up your authority.

When you rely on someone outside of you to manage your health, you have given up your authority.

When you give without receiving, you have given up your authority.

When you don't establish and maintain firm boundaries, you have given up your authority.

When you allow others to treat you poorly, you have given up your authority.

When you feel you have something to prove, you have given up your authority.

When someone's words affect you, you have given up your authority.

When you ability to identify emotions and where they sit in your body is compromised, you have given up your authority.

When you dismiss creativity for logic, you have given up your authority.


Authority comes from recognising and connecting with self, a self whose identity does not come from external forces.

When you are truly connected with self, authority is internal. The outside world will fluctuate but your internal world will maintain equilibrium. This authority over self allows calm within whilst storms rage around you.


As the world continues to apply external pressure, the need to reclaim your inner authority is becoming more and more evident.

Go within.

Connect to your heart.

Let YOUR truth guide you.
