Inner Strength Trumps Outer Strength

“Inner strength is a powerhouse of activity that when exercised daily will take you beyond any levels of outer strength you can imagine.”   – Debra Oakland

The buzz about living from the inside out is everywhere these days. If you think this is easy, think again. If you want to fly more expansively and never come down, get ready for some deep, introspective, time-consuming, intensely intentional intensive work. Did I scare you? I don’t mean to, but this work isn’t for the faint hearted. To grow, you are required to flex your inner strength muscles regularly.

Let’s examine. You are a divine being. Yep, you are. Once you wrap your mind around this, what are you going to do about it? You know there is more to you than the body wrapped around your soul. Right? By now I hope you have figured this out. Everyone comes to this conclusion at some point in time. That time might not be in this here and now, but it will come, trust me.

Now that we have established who you are, let’s examine why you are here. You came here to remember who you are. To live as a divine being of love & light, in a dense frequency of free will. To live from the ‘inside out’ versus the ‘outside in’. In this regard we are all the same, born out of Oneness. Each one with the light of inner strength flickering inside.

Your individual outcome depends on how frequently you fan the inner flames. No fanning, no fire. No fanning, you will go through the fire, and enough of it that you will want only to fan the flames that will light up every cell of your body, mind and spirit.

There will always be challenges, roadblocks and bumps in the road. It’s how you learn to navigate, to steer and to reach your desired destination. Take advantage of these times. The better you get at navigating (by fanning the flames of your inner love, wisdom and power), the more life will respond to you and the directions you give it.

Once you are powerful enough to shut out the negativity of the EGO, the outer will comply with the inner in a balanced way. This is where the inner work pays off. Payday! You create your reality with intention, through meditation, prayer, walks in the silence of nature, spending time in the ocean or anywhere you find the God of your knowing. But, work you must. This is like no university we have here on earth. You create your own curriculum, hours, rules and research.

It’s game time for all of us. There are many ways to play a winning game. Use your best strategies and you will find inner strength trumps outer strength. Once the right balance is achieved, you will be unstoppable.
