Discovering My Potential Means Sitting With My Blank White Board

Discovering one's potential is as unique as our DNA strand. What does the word “potential" mean anyway? As a noun or adjective, it talks about a latent quality or ability that can develop. I understand that yet, I question this concept. Every human is innately potent, just like Bees who instinctively fly around, pollinating all the flowers they touch. Humans' electromagnetic energy field connects with their surroundings by design and without effort: we have great power and the ability to affect everything we engage in.
I am the potential I seek. Sourcing this power begins with acknowledging and taking ownership of who and what I am. I am the potency at this moment to BE my aspirations. Wow! It is not something you ask your parents or friends for; read from a book or source outside yourself. It might sound daunting and perhaps a bit crazy to say; My potential is not a destination! Instead, it is where I AM, right here, right now.
I can't help but compare this to an Acting role like "Sexy Man." The casting directors are calling male actors who are sexy. Not men who can "act'' sexy. It doesn't matter what they wear on the outside; torn clothing, naked or 3-piece suit, make-up or no make-up, cleavage or no cleavage...it doesn't matter because their essence is sexy. In this same way, the essence of every Human Being is potency.
"I am the whiteboard" ~ I am my potential; that is the discovery. Within me lives the potent essence that is the force of all creation.
Now, how do we erase the unfulfilled expectations to refocus our energy and mind? Allowing oneself to rest and consolidate or play to blow off steam is the best reset when feeling "stuck or in limbo." Make a list of all the things you love to do and go and do them while laughing(no pressure)! You can also focus on the mundane aspects of life like your daily routine: Cleaning the house, eating, sleeping, pooping, meditating—choosing simple practices that you have mastery over will support neutrality, which is the goal of an energy reset.
