Shift 10

Defensiveness is another source of power drain. Not being able to accept feedback and make positive changes significantly impedes the flow of natural energy. Like a fish swimming upstream, life remains a struggle.

Mindfully shift from the habit of reacting defensively to responding wisely. Shift from needing to be right and justifying a perspective to openly accepting and respecting one another. Honour both yourself and the needs of others. For instance, shift from rationalizing your stance to embracing an open mind. Receive the words of others without taking it personally. Remain objective and await a wise response from within. It may be as simple as saying “That’s interesting. I will think about it.” This powerful shift maintains the flow of your natural power.
