True power is not bullying or subjugation. It is quiet and peaceful.
The empowered person does not seek power outside of themselves.
Think of a mother lion, feeding and playing with her cubs. She seems soft and harmless, until you try to harm her babies, then she will show you her power.
Power comes from within. It grows when you detach from drama and stop taking things personally.
The Angels will always help you, but their goal is to show you your own power. Allowing another to see their own power is an act of unconditional love, and that is how the Angels love you.
