Hello, everyone and welcome. I am Jennifer Urezzio, Super Power Expert and founder of Soul Language and this is SuperPowers of the Soul. And today I’m here with Trista Haggerty and the topic is Having a Conscious Mind and Heart. Welcome, Trista. How are you?
I’m great. Thank you. Thank you for having me.
I’m so excited that you’re here. So, you know, we start with a kind of “standard” question. What do you consider the superpower of your soul?
My trust in my intuition that has really been the foundational force.
Well, you know, I gave this question a lot of thought and every time I came up with an answer, I then dove deeper and would find another answer. And, I, you know, first I … I worked a lot with the divine feminine and I was like, yeah, it’s really, my superpower is to bring that balance with the masculine through the feminine. But when I really delved deeper, I realized that it was the faith and the flexible mind and my trust in my intuition that has really been the foundational force, I would say, or the superpower that has allowed me to walk this path for many, many years, and has really been what brought me onto the path of working with the divine feminine.
Yeah, you know, so often when people answer that question, especially master healers, right? They go first for, you know, being of service, for their superpower, but that superpower for the soul is really for us, just like our sacred purpose. It’s first for us to experience and then offer that to others and I think so often, people of service, you know, we go outside to help, rather than going, “Okay, wait, let’s see how really this supports me in a profound way.” So, I loved what you had to say. So, on that kind of theme, what do you consider your sacred purpose? My sacred purpose is to alleviate suffering through connection. That’s gonna start at home first and then I move outside of myself. So, what do you consider your sacred purpose?
Well, I’ve helped people to reclaim and reconnect with their power. I would say that that is one of my main purposes. It’s something that I have had to do for myself. Throughout my life I’d encounter situations and I started asking the question, “What is the situation asking of me?” Because I would, you know, find myself in relationships or situations that I felt a lot of disease and felt that I was in a position of compromising myself and so I had to work through a lot of those situations and when I look back I really realize that all of those situations were opportunities for me to reclaim my power and in this day and age, not to get political, but when we look at what is going on specifically in our country, but also throughout the world, it really necessitates a time for everyone to reclaim their power; power that we have so often given over to almost every major institution.
To reclaim that power, to know that we are in charge of creating our lives, we have the ability to create our lives in such magnificent ways, and as a result eventually create a whole new world here, a whole new experience on the planet.
Yeah, you know, so often people, you know, think that the first step of it, you know, reclaiming, isn’t external and it’s really an internal step first and I always work with divine intelligence to do that and it sounds like this, everyone, in case you want to do it. “Divine intelligence, I call back all the power that I gave away, consciously or unconsciously, to another, to a situation, to a thought or to belief. I call it back with divine love, wisdom, and grace. I bless all those involved and so be it.” And I think so often people, you know, in our circles of consciousness, we talk about giving this power away but you really can’t. It’s just how you’re focusing that power. No one really can take your power away unless, you know, they’re physically harming you or, you know, threatening your life. Those are extreme but, so I love this theme that you’re talking about here. So, how has that, your own journey, how is it reflected in your work?
