For many of us, the word “power” conjures up disturbing feelings of control and dominance, of winning at all costs, and often at the expense of others. Indeed, from our earliest days this is how we have been taught to view the world in order to survive; it is at the story of man’s evolution, and at the heart of much conflict and pain.
But now, in Powerful Beyond Measure, Nick Williams reveals the basis of a different kind of power – a power that does not rely on winners and losers, but on a love that feeds our soul and a faith that frees us from the need to control.
Here, as he draws upon fascinating case studies and timeless wisdom, Nick reveals how we can:
- Access the innate spiritual power that lies within each of us to find strength and inspiration every day of our lives
- Experience true connection with the world around us as we learn to trust ourselves and others
- Abandon our fears and doubts in order to discover the essence of who we truly are and all that we have to offer
Complete with sound, practical advice and based on his experience as one of the most sought after personal coaches, Nick Williams illuminates the path to a more rewarding life of hope, forgiveness and freedom – a life that is powerful beyond measure.
Why I wrote this book
This title came from a line in Marianne Williamson’s quote from Return to Love which started with the line, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.” I have always been fascinated by power, and as I got immersed more deeply in the spiritual world, I became very curious about the questions: What is power from a more spiritual and loving perspective? How do we have power with each other rather than seek power and control over each other? On a personal level, I was curious about this because often in my life I had felt powerless and helpless and hated feeling like that.
So this book was my enquiry into what power truly means, and how we can make power Holy. There is a lovely line in A Course in Miracles that says, “There is nothing your Holiness cannot do,” and this book was the beginning of my enquiry into what this might mean. This is an enquiry that I am still continuing with my latest project Born to Lead and how we can use our power for good and to transform our minds and the world from fear to love.
