When You Delegate Your Power

Of course, you can't technically delegate your power. But you can think, feel and act as though that were possible.

And that isn't a pleasant experience.

In fact, reflect now on what's happened for you whenever it's looked like your inner wellbeing and self-esteem were highly dependent on a person, relationship, activity, reward, income. possession, or achievement.

I don't mean feelings, your feelings will normally be involved in all the ups and downs of life. Rather, this is when the person, thing or circumstance has a feeling of urgency, demand and control attached to them.

Can you feel the ickiness of it?

And it’s so simple. But simple doesn’t always come easy when we have a lifetime of conditioning on top. So, I’m here to help you uncover that simplicity, and reconnect with life.
