You have the power to harness your inner power, raise your own energy and serve the world. And it’s easier than you might think.

Your energy has far more power than you can even imagine. There is energy in the words you speak, in the words you write and in your physical presence.

When we function from a fearful, low-level energetic state, our thoughts and energy can literally pollute the world. But when we function from a place of positive energy, the world around us becomes more positive.

5 ways to awaken your inner power

Ready to awaken your inner power? By raising your energy, you can serve the world and make it a better place. Just follow these five steps from my book Miracles Now.


be more real

Your real inner power stems from your authentic truth. This exercise heightens your awareness of what it feels like to be in your truth versus what it feels like to be out of alignment.

Take out your pen and paper and describe the differences between what it feels like to be in your truth versus what it feels like to be out of alignment with it. How do you act differently, talk differently, think and even breathe differently?

Pay close attention to the differences in how you feel. Then, whenever you notice yourself out of alignment with your truth, use this affirmation:

there is nothing more powerful than my authentic truth


judge no more

The second step in harnessing and awakening your inner power is to heal the habit of judgment.

Judgment weakens your power. I recently felt this firsthand when I noticed myself casually trash-talking. I wasn’t necessarily saying anything really mean or untrue, but it was trash-talking nonetheless. Afterward I felt awful. My energy was low and I was weak.

After witnessing how my words had weakened my power, I decided to change my ways. That moment I started counting how many days I’ve gone without judging. Now it’s been more days than I can count and I feel more energized, more connected to others and more powerful!

Each shift from judgment to unity is a miracle.


The reason is simple: Judgment creates separation. A Course in Miracles says, “The ego cannot survive without judgment. The ego seeks to divide and separate. Spirit seeks to unify and heal.” Though judgment may be our default, unity is our truth. The moment we release judgment, unity is restored.


remember your presence is your power

This ego eradicator meditation helps me bust through any stagnant energy and realign with my true source.

I use this meditation right before I step onto the stage to give a talk, before an important phone call or any time when I want to bring my highest presence to the table.

access your power in the service of others

I once heard Marianne Williamson say in a lecture, “I’ll tell you how to find your power: Use your power for someone who has none.”

She nailed it! There’s no greater way to awaken your inner power than to be in the service of someone who has none. If you’re feeling disempowered, immediately find a way to serve. Go to a homeless shelter, mentor a child — do anything that helps you discover your power and harness it to use in service of someone else.

This radical action will instantly remind you of how powerful you really are and reinforce the essential idea that your power is best used to lift up others and serve the world.



Most of us have been taught to turn down the light on our power. Playing small won’t work anymore. The world is in desperate need of more miracle-minded people waking up to their true power and purpose. It is your responsibility to shine bright. When you shine, you light up the world.

Get into a daily practice of turning on your inner light. Use these tools throughout the day to be more real, stop judgment, meditate, and serve others.

As you live in your power on a moment-to-moment basis you will notice your life begin to flow. You will feel more connected to your purpose. You will live in the light.
