No matter how you feel about promoting your work, once you are grounded, you can do it. You find the ideas inside yourself so that your promotion is juiced with your special brand of creativity. Then it is time to give your promotion power. Power comes from within. You have all the power you need. If you doubt this, you may need to unblock it. This post helps you do that.
This third post in our series connects Promotion with Integrity to your power source. It is themed yellow because in the human physical and subtle body, your power source is traditionally located in your solar plexus.*
- Unblocking your power is much easier–and can be much scarier–than fantasizing about power. Notice your thoughts about power: others have more than I do, I had more power when I was (rich or young or whatever), I will have power when I’m (rich or young or whatever).
- Take responsibility for your thoughts about your powerlessness. Where have you given up? How have you interrupted or diverted the extraordinary powers we are each born with and you were born with, and have continued to develop as you’ve grown. They have not decreased–your powers increase as you live.
- One reason we dislike promoting our work is that we dislike the promotion we’ve seen. Changing this means changing our ideas of power. Notice your mental images of power/ful people. Some may be positive: you can emulate them! But you do not have to be like anyone you’ve ever seen in order to promote your work. YOU may be one of your own positive images: think of moments you felt “in your power” talking about your work. In those moments, you were having a good time. Having a good time radiates. It’s powerful. THAT’s what I’m talking about. That’s ALL I’m talking about. You’ve got it! And now you can use it. You can put it to work. See the Meditation below and join us for the Phone Chat.

This sunflower is your solar plexus. Bask in the sunlight. Turn to the sun. Feel the sunlight filling you up. The sun is radiating out from your solar plexus, like your petals radiate from the center.
You have a sun at the center. The sun is now inside you.
Allow solar power to carry your work out into the world: what is one plan you can make today + act on this week that will bring your work out into the world? Make a time in your schedule; make a date with yourself and keep it.
This is all promotion is: pro+motion, forward motion–movement outward from the Sun within. Engage with your solar plexus as a partner. Check in with your gut. Let yourself be powerful. Let this streaming, solid, soulful power within help you make a powerful plan, and then keep it!
*Why is it called that? Originally, because its nerve fibers radiate in a solar pattern. It is an extraordinarily useful coincidence however that this area of the subtle body is connected with the sun, the self, the power source within ourselves, radiating outward.
