Do you have your place of power!

By
Real Estate Agent with The Virtual Real Estate Team 104556

Back in the late 60s Carlos Castenada came out with the book, Conversations with Don Juan, a Yaqui way of knowledge. Many of us back in those days were drawn to what peyote could do to the doors of perception but a larger message was missed if that was the only way you read the book. My poodle Henri is showing in the picture an ideal canine version of finding his place of power. It is on a couch with furry and comfy blankets as you can tell by the look on his face.

The deeper meaning is are you in state of mind or location where you can be a fierce warrior and achieve positive results? For me going to an office is a negative place so working at a home office is a place of power. I have had the privilege of visiting Kyoto, Jerusalem, and Florence, all places of power for me. Despite the amount of business I am doing in Oklahoma City I prefer to spend half of the year in Florida at our place off the ocean. Walking barefoot in the sand, absorbing the energy of the earth, listening to waves, and watching the turquoise water with the sun coming down in the morning is a place of power.

If you find that momentum is lagging, or you are holding onto anger or frustration, then you are not in your place of power. Don Juan believed in the other world of dreams and when walking on the beach my mind is free to wander, and even more importantly, wonder. If life is getting you down, do some searching to find that special place to connect or reconnect with your dreams. That is the first step to making them real.

Good evening Joe Pryor,

A very astute observation. We all have those special places for our very own seat of power. Blessings there are so many various places we can find this special spot.

We do have the power if we will let the anger go and redirect our minds. Good post, Joe.

Good morning, Joe... can't say I've ever thought about it quite this way... but your message totally resonated with me.

Morning Joe.

My special place of course is on the golf course.  It relaxes me while I have a great time.  There are plenty of them around here, so I'm a happy camper

Good morning again Joe. I really think you are on it with this and I agree. You have to decide and make it happen. Love your doggie in that picture too.

I have no doubt that Henri has plenty of power around your household, I know how much you spoil him, haha.

Joe, that is a good reminder to know where our place of power is.   I too prefer not to go to my office to work.

My place of power is in Hawaii, no doubt about it. Soon as I hit my lanai to stare at my 180-degree view of the ocean, I feel the Aloha. It either speaks to you or it doesn't. I hear it loud and clear. And I'm going there tomorrow morning, so I'm smiling right now.

So true Joe Pryor and when I need to reset I take the dogs for a walk (or run) on our grounds, stop by the pond and listen to nature.  Having acreage within the city, the best of both worlds for me.

And, Henri certainly knows his "power" place - he's so cute!

Absolutely. Being in our place of power is so important.  At times, if I feel myself slipping a bit, I have a mantra to get back. " I recognize that I am out of alignment with my power, I choose love instead of this."  It sets my intention back to where it needs to be for my optimal  performance.  I find any time spent in Nature also keeps me aligned and grounded. My home office (where I prefer to work)looks at the forest, and right now the morning sun in streaming through the branches. It's quite soothing and empowering at the same time.

Getting out into nature does that for many of us. I love looking at water be it an ocean, waterfall, babbling brook, lake or river.

I see the common thread here is the connection with nature and I agree.  People in the urban areas need to have this connection too - get outside and find a nice park or something to help put things in perspective. I can step outside and enjoy being surrounded by nature everywhere I look.

Yes Joe, that is exactly where OUR dogs go to be in the power position.  They want to sit where WE sit.

I also like getting away from the office.  You are more in control of things when you are in the most controllable environment I think.  Thanks for the thoughts!
