Take Your Power Back: Free Your Emotional Cuffs

Time to take your power back. This year I decided to skip the new year’s goal and opted for taking my power back in flow with the universe. Inspired by a book on synchronicity, The 7 secrets of synchronicity by Trish and Gregg MacGreggor, I decided that I will not drive my focus, but instead notice where I am guided to follow. 

If you, like me,  had enough of information overload and being overwhelmed last year, it might be time for you to take your power back too.

With each passing year I look at what worked and what didn’t work. With each insight there is a sense of how I over or under achieve. But beyond that, 2017 took its share of energy from me. Instead of feeling proud; I felt drained.

I wonder if all the results are worth the effort?

We measure success based on achievements: But, surely there has to be more to life than over achieving or prioritizing tasks.


More of what feels good and less of what does not;

Surely what I do daily can help me take my power back bit-by-bit;

Is living in my heart worth it, I mean: how do I live without being held ransom by my emotions?

How can I use less effort and achieve more?

Can I really control what happens to me?

The answer that frees you from your emotional cuffs lies in never blaming someone else for what happens to me ever again!


Living in flow with the universe is a complete transformation which challenges my t0-do-list lifestyle: It is about LISTENING and not doing. BUT, can this work? And if YES… how?

    Serendipity…a word I have always loved as it reminds me to “dip” into my inner source of being and to allow myself to be synchronised with my soulful self. For so long I had known this word, but never understood it’s true meaning to me, and suddenly reading your post I made the “dip!” You speak about being “in the flow” and I realise suddenly that although the year is still an infant, I am tired. Tired because as per norm, I am trying to resist the flow, and instead am trying to “swim against the current.” Being disciplined I always have my “TO DO” list present, and achieving each item is my daily “chase,” yet from the dawn of the new year I am “distracted” more by the beauty of a flower inviting me to capture it’s blossom, or the dancing sunshine across my garden calling me to come out and play, or the random song on the radio challenging me to dance. Is this maybe the call to “be in the flow?” Your blog sure got me thinking….

      Dear Nathalia,
      I love how you put it ‘distracted by beauty’. I think that captures it all for me.
      Part of the process is learning to think with the other part of our brains, and truthfully, I believe it was always meant to be easy.
      Imagine a world where we automatically know what to do instead of first reading a list which controls our timeline. Imagine where we always know what the priority is where the one little thing creates all the results. I believe it is happening already. It will require a bit of a mind shift and noticing things differently but it is real.

      Of course it is possible Yolandie. It is simply a matter of learning to notice what is there all along.

      You are welcome Trudie. Thank you for your comment. Sometimes I have to be brave about sharing how I live my life. But when we are brave we discover how much it means to others and that makes it all worth while.

    Wow Adele, I love this post. As I have recently registered I have noticed that there are more blogs I can’t wait to read!. I love the fact that this blog really spoke to me! From now on I will surely make myself my number 1 priority, try to live in the flow without always expecting things to happen in a certain way and most importantly, I will surely pursue the idea of NEVER blaming anyone or anything for any of my circumstances. Everything happens for a reason. Pain is also our friend as it always allows us to grow. We can never fully control what happens to us. All we can do is “change what we can and accept what we can not”: motto of the year. Thank you so much for this. God bless

      That is amazing Keza. Happy reading and that is a huge achievement ‘never blaming’. I know that I work at it every day.
