Life is full of things and events that we have to do. If you are like most people, you devote most of your time doing what you have to do, versus doing what you want to do. There’s a chance that you’ve allowed your life, career, and family to take over the life and you’ve neglected your You time, and you feel mentally and emotionally drained. Now is a better time than any to take a breather and feed your inner goddess.

Don’t get hung up on the lexicon here. I use the word goddess in place of power. It’s a fair assessment that you are an inspired person with dreams and aspirations that will land you amongst the stars.

When was the last time you hit the pause button in order to recharge and reinvigorate your soul?

Seek Inspiration

I’ve always said that it’s the easiest thing to inspire someone, and it’s even easier to discourage them. Don’t allow the voice your hear from the naysayers break down your ambition. Even if it means taking some time for yourself in order to feed your soul with inspirational magazines, books, and audio, by all means, take that break.

The Daily Om is a place I always run to for refuge when I feel drained. The spiritually lifting daily passages as well as horoscopes are invigorating and are like a burst of love from the Universe.

Become One with Nature

The majesty of nature is renewing. Try what I’ve done a few times. Go out by a lake or beach and simply look around. Nature will have her way of reigniting your inspiration. There’s something undeniably beautiful about holding space and observing an environment that functions smoothly without you.

Watch the ebb and flow of the water. Feel the wind in your hair and on your skin. Observe how nature unabashedly grows beauty in the unlikeliest of places, and remember that you are a part of it.

Praise Others

I don’t think that people are reminded enough how powerful they are. You are capable of achieving far beyond the realm of what you’ve experienced. What I mean is, you get to write your own story, you just have to believe that voice that tells you to go for it.  Build relationships with people you strongly resonate with, even if they are far away.

If you love that book you’re reading, open up that email and send the author a message telling him or her how much they’ve changed your life! If you’re obsessed with something – a restaurant, boutique, record store, incense shop… Drop the owner or manager a line telling them how much their work has meant to you.

Chances are, you’re drawn to those items, words, or spaces because you’ve felt the energy infused into it by its founder. Maybe their work has just made you happier and left an impression on you.

No matter what the reason, never hesitate to give credit. People appreciate it when they are told that their work is meaningful, and chances are, they’ll want to improve the experience for you and everyone else because you’ve inspired them to.

Surround Yourself with Power

When you surround yourself with like-minded people, you enable yourself to live out the audacious ambition that you were placed on this earth to achieve. If you are a chef, you’re most likely to know other chefs. Writers have the tendency to intermingle with writers, and so on.

You attract that type of person you are, and I mean this in levels beyond achievement and career choices. There’s no way you’re surrounded by enthusiastic, happy people if you’re pissed off all the time.

Take inventory of the people who have immediate access to you. If they are movers and shakers and motivate you to become better, that’s power. If you aren’t made to feel empowered by those who surround you, that’s your inner goddess begging for stimulation and a power jolt.

Don’t be embarrassed to seek out people who have lived out and enhanced their power potential. You’ll feel more powerful for it.

Do Good Deeds

I’ve always suggested to people who have low or dwindling self-esteem that they can raise their emotional immunity by helping others.

Without expecting anything in return, your inner goddess craves to be of service to people you come into contact with. She can’t help it. She gets high off your utilization of your energy to benefit others. It’s what you were born to do.

I am by no means suggesting you become a people pleaser. I’m suggesting that doing something good for someone who may or may not be in the position to reciprocate not only feels good, it’ll feel necessary once you do it often enough.

Allow yourself the indulgence of going beyond your daily routine. Shake it up and give yourself reasons to feel powerful and share your inspiration. Try giving your soul high quality time you’ve given everyone else. You’ll feel like a new person for doing so.

What do YOU do to feed your inner goddess?

    What a wonderful piece,truly uplifting. I feel better just by reading it. Thank you.
    I feed my inner goddess by retiring from job after many years. I am currently working for a non-profit helping a young person with a few challenges. So glad that I retired from a job that was giving me nothing but stress and doing something that I truly enjoy.

      Thank you for this beautiful comment, Beverly. It really does mean a lot. I’m so happy for the chapter in your life you are currently living in. It’s so very important to do what makes the heart sing, isn’t it? I’m sure you’re inspiring those around you to live out their joy as well.

      Love and light,

    Everything about this post is spot on. I’ve been making it a point to spend more time with people that share similar interests, starting discussions, developing deeper relationships. I am a true beach bum at heart, too, so nature is something I hold dear. But as you point out, it absolutely involves the smaller things as well – the touch of breeze, for instance. One thing I miss living in a city area is being able to see the stars at night. It is a sight to admire. I like your link to the Daily Om, by the way! I got into meditation in college, and the ‘aum’ was a big influence for that. Anyway, I will have to bookmark that page and check it out more often.
    I also feel strongly about human rights, so I have now been a weekly volunteer for a nonprofit organization for the cause to end violence against women for over two years now. It’s a rewarding experience. I agree completely with you that a good deed, whether big or small, goes a long way for both parties. It is so true that you attract the type of people you personally are, so I try to keep that in mind in my daily routines. Thank you for writing this post! My inner goddess is happier for it, too. ;]

      Ashley! What beautiful feedback! Meditation has proven to be a necessary element in my life as well. Daily Om has had miraculous way of showing content that happens to affect my specific situations on that day. I hope you get to go to the beach more often to recharge – I know I miss it when I’ve been away for too long.

      Thank you for your beautiful words. Your blog is gorgeous! I’ll be visiting it again very soon.

        I love when you find content that is relatable to your life. I think introspection is incredibly important in finding peace within the day, particularly when it becomes chaotic. Meditation is obviously helpful in this, and I’ve enjoyed the Daily Om site so far.

        Thank you for visiting my blog – and for your kind words! I’m so glad you liked it. :D

    Gah…I just love you. Making other people smile ALWAYS makes me feel better. Giving out a compliment, making somebody happy, or a simple gesture of holding a door or getting something from a top shelf (I love helping short people haha) make me so happy.

    For me I feed my inner goddess by reading, writing, taking a walk, music, being around friends, or my family. I make it a point to take enough me time, to refuel and take care of my needs. It’s the little things that charge me the most. I especially love a random text or call telling a friend or family member I love them for no reason other than to say it. Makes me smile EVERY SINGLE TIME.

    I particularly resonate with praise others and do good deeds. I’ve been trying to incorporate more of both into my life recently, and I almost always feel better when I do so!

    I also feed my inner goddess by taking a hot bath, relaxing with a glass of wine, or simply unplugging and talking to my husband. The break in routine and from the grind is worth it for the feel-good bennies!

    You are a goddess! This article is fantastic. I especially love your point about praising others! I firmly believe in cheering each other on. Often, we’re too quick to criticize. When we shift our focus from the negative and, instead, praise each other, our impact is far more powerful.
