Decoding Power vs. Force

Prazis Images

The last couple of years have provided an opportunity to reflect on the difference between power and force. Through these reflections, we realized how important it is to be able to detect the influence of power versus the implementation of force. As the wave of awakening hits our planet, it’s a skill we all need to cultivate.

What is power and how is it different from force? Power is a reflection of the degree of openness to Pure Source and all that is true or based in reality; in other words, all that is pure, unfiltered, free from distortion, ego or mental programming of any kind. It is rooted in Pure Source—the unconditionally loving, infinitely accepting space of ultimate neutrality. Power is efficient, bringing maximum results using minimal effort. It can be associated with the flow state. It is a space where all things are possible and creativity is limitless. It is lifeward-focused, strengthening the physicality.

Force is a reflection of the degree to which one is closed off from Pure Source. It is filtered by a false reality that is laced to one degree or another by distortion, ego and mental programming. In a sense, these filters are the kink in the “hose to Pure Source”. The more distortions there are, the more limiting your flow from Pure Source and the more false your reality. Force is rooted in and driven by fear. Results through force are unsustainable and require significant effort to achieve: working hard, pushing through and swimming upstream. It is a space with limited possibilities and little creativity. It is draining of life force and leads to weakening of physicality when dominant.

There is no need to succumb to force. When we are able to ignite the power within us, we unleash a multitude of abilities and limitless possibilities. We come into a space of higher consciousness where the frequency and vibration of our world can elevate. It is our responsibility to tap into our own power to attain a life of significance and we must carefully avoid pathways where force can be used for personal gain.

For individuals engaged in personal development and spiritual work, a pattern tends to emerge. Those who have the greatest commitment to change, growth and personal evolution are those who have a deep desire and increasingly accurate ability to see and know truth, no matter what that means. Despite the depths of initial programming placed on them by families, cultural rule-sets, religions and institutions, these individuals are dedicated to finding truth. In doing so, they align with their higher Self where distortions and false realities melt away. 

Their desire to do what is needed to reach a state of higher consciousness gives them the power and determination to face their fears and the courage to move through the heaviness of humanity. When they achieve a centered state of balance, wisdom and assuredness, they access a connection to Pure Source so strong that no amount of force, fear or manipulation can fool them or shake their foundation of awakening. 

The purity wave of enlightenment that is moving through our planet is magnifying everything that is or ever will be. There has never been a more significant moment in time to learn to differentiate what is true from what is not. At the core, we are Pure Source itself. As such, one might say that recognizing what is true is as simple as noticing whether it resonates with the core of your being. 

So don’t be discouraged by the state of the world or by the extensive web of lies, deceit and use of force that you face each day. For those that are on this path to awakening, we have the power to transform when we are able to reveal the truth of our own grandness and look within to find the well of solutions and magnificence waiting for us. Take time to reflect on your desires. Ask yourself if you seek to know truth, to really understand it and be able to detect it. Then, as the world offers up a myriad of realities to you each day, approach each with the question “Is this true?” Let the answer come. It always will.

Dawn Stebbing

Image strategist Dawn Stebbing began working in the beauty industry more than 20 years ago, focusing on cosmetology.

No,” she recalls. “There is more to women than skincare, hair and makeup. We have to feel good inside about who we are.”
