Describing the concept of Self-empowerment, Ann Purcell, author of Let Your Soul Sing, writes:

Let's break down the word Self-empowerment. The first word is ''Self''. There are two aspects to our Self—one is our small self, composed of our surface thoughts, desires, and unique individuality. Then there is the BIG SELF—the deepest aspect of who we are, the silent universal level of our Being. This SELF is our infinite, unbounded, blissful, peaceful nature—our source and essence. The small self is like individual waves on the ocean that are tossed about by the different winds that may come along. The BIG SELF is like the vast calm depths of the ocean, unmoved by any storms.

How do we become familiar with our Big Self? We can dive into our Big Self—our own power—by going beyond the surface level of the mind until we transcend the finest level of the thinking process and experience the pure silence of our Being. This state of pure transcendence can be easily experienced through the technique of Transcendental Meditation.

Research shows that profound physiological changes take place while we meditate, including a fourth major state of consciousness characterized by restful alertness. In this unique physiological state, the mind is completely calm and still, yet extremely alert. Over time, this coherence and order spills into daily activity.
