Those who claim to "give" you energy are in fact asking you to be lacking for their benefit!
You are the power of you, you are the master of you, and you are all that you have been searching for.
Leave the beliefs (be and leave aspect) you adopted (learned) behind you, and open to the magnificence that you have always been and that you already are.
Empowerment means; I am in power and it's meant to be.
