The way we experience life on a moment to moment basis gives us huge clues about the degree to which we are in our power and where we might be leaking it. Being in our power keeps life flowing and supports us in any kind of manifestation work. So find out the degree to which you are in yours and discover where you may be leaking it by answering the questions below and adding up your scores.
Which of the following statements most matches how you feel about your life right now?
a) I feel very positive about what’s going on and optimistic about the future.
b) Overall things are okay – there are a few areas that I’m concerned about, but I’m holding it together.
c) There’s a lot I really want to change about my life right now but I don’t seem to be able to do it.
How do you feel about yourself?
a) I feel good. Not in a big-headed way, I’m not perfect. But I’m okay with who I am and I’m working on my flaws!
b) I feel quite good overall. I’ve got some good qualities and I’m working on the things I want to change.
c) If I’m completely honest there are so many things about me that I can’t stand I don’t know where to start. At times I absolutely hate myself.
If you think about goals or ambitions for your future, how do you feel?
a) Excited and engaged. I’ve got a clear sense of where I’m going, how I’m going to get there and I’m loving the journey.
b) Okay. It’s feels like a lot of hard work sometimes but I’m sure it will be worth it.
c) Quite low. I’m almost beyond having ideas of how I’d like things to be because they are so far away from where I am now.
Do you have many regrets?
a) I have things that I wish I’d done differently. But I try and take what I need to learn from every experience and move on.
b) A few that do haunt me sometimes. Don’t we all?
c) One or more that I can’t get out of my mind, even if they are about things that happened years ago. Just thinking about them still has the power to floor me.
How often do you laugh?
a) Several times a day.
b) Quite a few times a day.
c) I can’t remember the last time I really laughed.
When it comes to the overall course your life is taking, which statement most closely matches how you feel?
a) I’m on track and flowing with it.
b) I don’t feel in total control but I do feel in charge – if I notice I’m going off course I can usually pull things around.
c) I feel helpless and I don’t even know where to start.
When you look back at people who have hurt you in the past, how you do feel?
a) It’s taken a lot of work, but I have forgiven them and done my best to move on.
b) Still quite hurt. I try not to let it affect me, but there are always moments every so often when it all feels like yesterday.
c) I still feel just as angry when I think about what they did and the impact it had on my life.
There’s something you want to do but it means stepping away from your usual herd. How does that make you feel?
a) That’s fine. I still find time to be with them as well as following my own path.
b) A bit sensitive about the whole thing. I wouldn’t let it put me off, but I’d be aware if I didn’t have their full blessing or understanding.
c) I don’t think I could go ahead with whatever it is. They might know something I don’t and I’d be nervous that I’d find myself pushed to one side if they disapproved of me.
Mostly A – Power source
You’re in your power – but you probably had a good sense of that anyway even without looking at this answer. Either you’ve done loads of work on yourself or you are totally and naturally in tune with the workings of the cosmos. Whatever it is, you probably find it quite easy to manifest what you want and enjoy an overall sense of abundance in your life. There’s nothing I can add to your current state, but it might be worth taking a look at some of the other answers as they might provide important clues as to what it feels like to be away from your power if they start to nudge into your consciousness in the future.
Mostly B – A few small steps away from being fully in your power.
You are pretty much in your power with a few tweaks away from working at full blast. It would be worth you going over your answers again and comparing them with the other possible answers to see what an A streamer looks and feels like. Read up on any of my other articles on Quantum Creating or any kind of manifestation to layer up on what you are doing well and build on everything you are currently doing to help you do even better. The journey to power in part involves becoming self aware, so the more you can learn about how and where you give your power away, the more you can nurture and hold it. One thing that you can work to your advantage is that you’re likely to have a good variety of experiences behind you that allow you to make some pretty good distinctions about what boosts your power and what drains it and how life flows for you according to the different levels of power that you are operating with. That’s the sort of knowledge you really can turn into power.
Mostly C – Major leak alert!
All of the answers for C absolutely scream ‘major power leak!’ If you scored loads of Cs, start with some basic self nurturing. Do what you can where you can to take care of yourself. Layer up the rewards when you do something good for you and weed out any negative self talk if you slip up. If you feel it would help, you might get some counselling or book a few sessions of massage or do something nice for yourself on a daily basis, even if it’s just cooking and eating a good, nutritious meal. Remember that you really are a unique and beautiful soul. You are here for a purpose that you fulfil just by being you. You matter to the fabric of the universe in a way that you might not be able to quite see right now, but if you start with those basics, the rest will come.
What if you have a mix of all three?
Living our lives today means switching between roles, personas and different parts of ourselves and we all have times when we feel on top of the world one minute and at the bottom of the heap in the next moment. If your scores are wildly all over the place, begin to delve deep to get to that part of you that is right at the core of everything – the part that is ageless, timeless and that goes beyond your physical form. You might call that your divine self or your soul, but it’s the bit of you that is pure potential. Start from your strengths and let that radiate out and transform you as a whole. Again, it’s really important for you to be aware of the difference for you in terms of when you are in your power and when you aren’t and how that plays out in your life as that alone should give you the insight, motivation and awareness to bring the rest of you on line.

I’ve been creating my Knight-Waite tarot deck for three years.
It has been such a labour of love, I can’t wait to unleash it!
It will launch in 2023, but why not take a little sneak peek at the cards below?
