What is Self-Mastery?
Very briefly, if you’ve begun seeing patterns in your: behaviours, reactions, and effects around others – you are definitely opening up to the possibility of: SELF MASTERY. Mastering your SELF.
Self Mastery is all about serious POWER RETRIEVAL. Being so empowered that you: hold onto your own in face of put downs, let downs; hold your positive vibe regardless of what chaos is reigning supreme around you; and use each and every interaction with others as a growth opportunity. It is a conscious choice toward being an emergent, powerful, fluid being full of deep inner peace, resilience and love.
What people don’t realise unless they’ve fully committed to self mastery is that it all starts with your VIBE i.e. your Energy Body. And, just like you can consciously train your physical body at the gym, you can consciously train your energy body too by doing ENERGY WORK.
Self-Mastery and Energetic Martyrdom
So, this post is about energetic martyrdom. How often have you been with someone in friendship, a family member, teacher, colleague, a passer by, or even in relationship – where they have said or done something and you walk away FEELING INTERNAL UNREST. And this interaction grates on your for days on end.. You just can’t SHAKE IT OFF!
Self Mastery: Seeing Interactions that Grate on You as Opportunities for Growth & Power Retrieval
Well, a master would see this is an OPPORTUNITY. To see where they unconsciously GAVE AWAY THEIR POWER! When we carry others’ crap as if it’s our own, we end up exhausted. Why? Because this interaction was an EXCHANGE OF ENERGY. Every interaction is – so never be fooled when its ‘just words‘. Words carry energy and if they’ve ‘gotten’ to you, well then you’ve given your power away in that moment. You MUST GET IT BACK.
You’ve been stung without realising it…
So, if you walk away from an interaction and you:
* can’t stop thinking about it
* have ’emotion’ around it – that BOTHERS you
* you feel unheard, undervalued, invalidated – or that there was an injustice of some sort (etc)
YOU HAVE TAKEN ON AN ENERGY FROM IT THAT IS NOT YOURS!
In other words – if that judgement, piece of advice or whatever – DID NOT RESONATE WITH YOUR INNER EXPERIENCE, then, YOU TOOK IT ON like some sort of ENERGETIC MARTYR.
My Masters, it is NOT YOURS TO CARRY. So why carry it? Why not let those that loaded you down with it deal with it themselves???!!! After all, they deserve expansion too – which demands SELF-RESPONSIBILITY AND SELF-REFLECTION. Aaaahhh Self Mastery can definitely be liberating.
