What is Personal Power Loss
Have you ever been in a situation where you've lost your confidence or experienced trauma of any kind?
This trauma might be something that you wouldn't consciously consider to be traumatic, but your soul knows differently. Your soul and psyche can experience trauma even when you don't consciously realize that you have. This will be different for each person. What's traumatic to me may not be to someone else. Something small like a fight with a loved one or friend may be experienced as traumatic by one person but not another.
Recognizing Power Loss
In traumatic situations, the soul does two things. It reaches out to protect itself while the ego and physical body will either run in fear or stand and try to fight. When in the fight mode, your body and mind unconsciously work to mediate situations. If you're not careful or sure of your personal boundaries, then one of these mediations is to give over or surrender your personal power to the person or thing that you perceive as attacking you. You are ready to defend yourself at all costs and this could include surrendering your sovereign power in order to please, placate, or diminish the situation. This is called giving your power away and can be very damaging to the physical, mental, and emotional bodies.

These symptoms can develop immediately following or days, weeks, or sometimes even years later.
Exploring the Root of Power Loss
In addition to healing any existing power loss, it is vital to explore and heal the root reason behind why you gave away your power in the first place.
For some, it is a lack of confidence in their ability to handle something on their own. They feel they need to gain acceptance from others or to try to control a situation by giving in to another person or thing.
In relationships, this can manifest as one person wanting so badly to please the other person that they allow the other person to get the better of them. For example, you crave the love and attention of another person and are willing to give anything of yourself in order to win their love and affection. This can also happen by conscious or unconscious manipulation by the other person. Again, you may not even realize that you are doing this, but the unconscious mind trained to react this way because of whatever the underlying root cause is, will allow it to occur.
For some, this is rooted in their childhood and others have carried this around with them in their soul from past life occurrences. Either way the root cause can be explored and healing can take place by working with a trained healer.
It is also helpful to journal and meditate with the intention of better understanding ways in which you surrender your sovereignty and power to something or someone else.
Here are some helpful questions to explore in your journal or meditation:
