Growing up, I loved watching cartoons. I still love watching cartoons to this day. Back in the day when there wasn't a 24 hour cartoon network,watching Saturday morning cartoons was a ritual. With a big bowl of sugary cereal fixed between folded legs, many of you can remember excitedly getting up to watch Scooby and the gang solve another comical mystery or maybe it was the Super Friends save the day. Whatever the case was Saturday mornings were reserved for children and cartoons.
One of the cartoons, my cousin and I would watch was the Hanna -Barbara series, "Wonder Twins". The paternal twins, Jayna and Zan were a duo apart of the Justice League's "Super Friends". This dynamic duo are what they call "shape shifters". They had the ability to transform into something else. When there was a crisis that needed the power of the super twins, the two would extend their arms ,clench their fists to connect with each other and say "Wonder Twins Power Activate.. shape of a .....?" They instantly activated their inner power.. be it a eagle, water, or whatever was necessary to attack the crisis.
We all have hidden powers that are lying dormant. They have been lying dormant due to years of assimilating, living in an oppressive relationship, believing the lie someone told you when you were younger, hidden traumas, or scars from the past . You only know why they have been locked. Through varied experiences both positive and negative, your powers have been been ignited and diffused. Each experience that we have has shown us our hidden powers. However, sometimes, we fail to remember that hidden power when we are riddled with self doubt and fear. We resort to replaying those messages in our heads where people have degraded, downplayed and demeaned us. Our hidden powers are meant to help us get through challenging situations and are also meant to remind us who we are inside and not on the outside. We. should turn inward and focus on what is inside.
What is your hidden power? If you were to select an animal that represents your hidden power what would that be? What power comes with that animal?
Here is what you can do to tap into your hidden power daily
First, tell yourself you want to ACTIVATE your hidden power (remember you already know what it is!)
Secondly, Visualize the animal that represents your hidden power.(visualize this animal in motion)
Third, Connectwith one person that affirm and confirm your power. (we all need someone to give us a boost)
Release self doubt, fear, anxiety and tap into your hidden power.. READY > SET> ACTIVATE!
