"Power is the ability to be and let be."
Come as you are, not as you think you should be. To gain access to "power", you need to be authentic to yourself and focus on your body, mind, and life right now. Accept yourself as you are right now.
When you give up the resistance or the same mind-set, you gain power and energy. It is your choice, let it go, be free and create power which will allow you to follow your heart and embrace change.
