Power Need Not Explain Itself

Last weekend I was in the Somatic Experiencing Training and as part of the experience, we practice on each other and have 1-on-1 sessions with SE Practitioners.

In SE, your body guides the experience. As you follow the body, you narrate the experience – both what is happening in your body and the memories, thoughts, feelings and beliefs that come up.

In my 1-on-1 session, I was asked to draw up a more pleasant experience as a starting place. After describing the body sensations and imagery that came up, a feeling of power showed up for me. Then, the practitioner asked me to describe that power. And I couldn’t. The best way I could describe it was that it didn’t need to explain itself.

This feeling and thought has been lingering with me ever since. If I meditate on it further, it feels like power is always there for us. A kind of silent presence that simply exists. As if it’s like light, waiting for us to harness it. Make use of it. Go on a journey and do some good with it.

This kind of power is so special and so important. It defies all the -isms and is there, inside of us, waiting to be harnessed. This is probably the most exciting part of my job – helping others find and harness their power.
