Ask Dr. Orloff

Why is my energy wiped out whenever I feel empowered?

Question: I dared hope that you may be able to give me some insight into why I allow my energy to be wiped out whenever I feel empowered. Its like I have been completely shattered and I feel powerless and scared. So I start again. Are you able to give me any insight into what I am not wanting to own or face?

Answer: It's often terrifying to feel empowered. It's something that many people on the spiritual path face. Know that you will be safe if you express your power and look for any blocks in childhood or upbringing that could be stopping power from coming up. Healers throughout the ages have been persecuted, but now the time is different. It's safer at this time in history to express yourself.
