When you have a healthy relationship, understanding and subconscious programming around power you are way ahead of most. But the rest of us think we are empowered or have a healthy relationship with power, but this is under the guise of the spiritual ego.
When you’re raised by someone who uses their power to manipulate and control others you may still have that programming on the subconscious level. Most people have no idea the extent that they deny or use their power in an unhealthy way.
When you’re on the spiritual path you start to understand the words of power like compassion, understanding and wisdom. But are you looking at your own issues and underlying subconscious programming around power? In our world we have a weird dichotomy with power. Too many people see power as a negative energy and will either subdue their own power, bury it deep in their subconscious or let it sneak out as anger toward others or themselves.
