Occupy Your Power

I have been at a bit of a crossroads with my political activist side. If you are a long time reader you will remember a blog I wrote about spiritual activism. I think there is a way to not be in denial of the powers that are causing oppression in our reality without having to stay in anger and fear. There is a way to be active but from a place of positive focus and empowerment. This is why I have been struggling with the Occupy movement. I believe everything they stand for; taking our power back, not letting the government be run by those with the biggest dollar, shopping local, and demanding that the people who make up society not be overlooked for the dollars that make up society. The issue I am having is the constant anger. The “us versus them”, “we are at war” mentality. I find this in a lot of liberal activist movements and it always bothers me. If you want to be heard, respected, and empowered then you need to act like it. If you act like a beaten dog lashing out then you will be treated that way. I understand that many feel that way. I certainly do at times. I asked the Fairies for a message about this movement and mentality.
“It is like you have a giant spring and there is a slab of rock placed on top. It can be pushed down more and more but eventually the spring will hit its limit and fling the rock way up in the air and away. That is what has happened in society. The people are springing back. It is happening in different ways all over the world. It does not matter if it is a corporation or a dictator you oppose the energy is the same. This is all very good. It is all part of the destruction to make room for the new that we have been talking about. Do not worry if they are coming from a fear place or a victim place. All you can do is not allow yourself to be in fear and play a victim. All you can do is be the one to stand in your power and speak your truth. Play that role for others and they can choose to do the same.”
So I say we start the Occupy Your Power movement. Let me know how you will occupy your power. I will Occupy my power by finishing the many projects I am in the middle of, find local and independent ways to publish, produce, and sell, and keep following my passion of empowering others on their path.
