How to Build True Power with Mindfulness

Mindfulness empowers us to develop our inner strength and true sense of power. How? Because the more aware we become of our perceptions and habits, the more readily we are able to instill mindful habits and beliefs that uplift us. Mindfulness enhances self-knowledge – and that is empowering.

If you’re curious about how to feel empowered, mindfulness is one tool that will help to unveil the journey. Since empowerment is indeed a feeling, it involves shifting the perceptions we have about ourselves and the world around us. 

How to Feel Empowered

Developing a sense of personal empowerment does not happen overnight. Slowly but surely, through self-awareness and inner growth, we might find ourselves becoming more empowered in daily life. One key notion to keep in mind if you want to feel more empowered is to remember that empowerment, like all things, is not something we can attain forever and be done with it. We can only feel empowered in the present moment – so focus only on the here and now and let the journey build strength from there.

One way to begin this journey is to cultivate a toolbox of mindful habits. These habits involve being aware of our thoughts, feelings, and actions and supporting ourselves in finding the inner strength that is present beneath the layers of conditioning.

5 Mindful Habits for Inner Strength

Cultivating inner strength and a sense of personal empowerment is a journey that looks different for everyone. However, there are some general mindful habits we can work on embodying in order to support our empowerment goals:

  1. 1
    Gratitude practice – What traits, skills, or qualities are you grateful to embody?
  2. 2
    Mindfulness of your beliefs – What beliefs stand in the way of you feeling truly empowered? What are you willing to let go of, even if only in this moment?
  3. 3
    Positive affirmations – What positive statements can you repeat to yourself before sleep or during meditation to cultivate the beliefs that will empower you?
  4. 4
    Solar plexus meditation – The solar plexus is the chakra located in the navel, connected with willpower, confidence, courage, and self-empowerment. This meditation can help us to strengthen or balance this chakra.

Kevin Wood

Before I realized words were my calling, I was stringing together language of a different sort, code. I taught myself to program while in school (for philosophy), and built WordPress sites for a living. It was a grind, but it was fun. Until it wasn’t. Lucky for my sanity, I found this little thing called writing. Now, I write in the technology space, it was a natural extension of my skills. I know tech and I know writing. Why not combine them.
And that brings us to the present day. Creating epic content for tech-related websites, startups, SaaS businesses, and high-traffic online business and marketing blogs. I only write for companies who I’m passionate about.
