The powers of individuals may be blocked, hampered, confused, ineffective, defeated, distorted, mind-programmed into depowerment conditions.
The powers may have been educated to non-effective levels, adulterated, intimidated, willingly or unwillingly suppressed by yourself or by others, polluted with anti-power considerations. But the powers exist even so.
One’s sense of power may even be intellectually and emotionally confused. Or it may simply be that others don’t want you to manifest your power, and have taken active, preventive measures to prevent its consolidation within you.
Take paper and pencil and list ten of the times during your life you DID feel powerful. Then write down each item, beside it make a note of what happened because you were powerful at that time. When you have finished that list study it well several times.
