Without awareness you can become hypnotized by the powerless meanings and images within symbols of words. This might be an effective marketing technique as it makes organizations services more appealing when a person is in a mindset of feeling powerless. However I doubt that organizations have the awareness of these subtle messages they are sending. If they did they would likely shift their language.
The truth is that every person has extraordinary power. It is what they do with it that is dis-empowering. Many people invest the power of their belief in conceptual ideas that they are unworthy, unlovable or trapped in some area of their life. If a person puts the power of their belief into the idea that they can’t change something then it will be true for them. In this way people use their extraordinary power of belief to hypnotize themselves into being powerless.
Even people that act as victims and feel depressed about their life are incredibly powerful. It is an act of power to invest so much belief in stories of poor self image that generate emotions of depression. Just the energy that it takes to generate emotions is an incredible amount of power.
People don’t need to be empowered. They already have plenty of it. What many people don’t have is awareness of how they use their power. Nor do they have effective techniques to unhook their attention from self hypnotic stories of powerlessness and create a new self image.
One of he most empowering things people can do is to un-hypnotize themselves from these limiting beliefs.
The mind can work at subtle yet powerful levels. Be wary of when someone offers to empower you. Be watchful that you don’t assume to be powerless over your life when someone offers to empower you. You may benefit from programs, tools, and techniques, but not because they gave you something you didn’t have, but because you used the technique to do something for yourself.
