Energy flows where attention goes
I've been focused on other life fulfilling activities, like teaching, energy healing, beach vacays and practicing what I preach. Being an energy healer with a specialty in expanding one's communication is more intense that I thought.
Every new speaking gig is a new energetic level I'm called to climb up to. This means my physical body has to rise with me. Enter the sore throats, the overnight cold symptoms and sometimes a bit of coughing. Just as our subtle energy bodies are upgrading, so does our physical body follow a day or two later. I know because its a fly-by-night kinda bug. In one day, out a day later.
But I digress....today's insight is about how to hold and conserve our energy. How do we intentionally reserve it for the people, places and things that we want to invest it in? Think of all the different things we do from the moment we wake to the moment we shut our eyes at night. We wake up. We start racing through what we need to do in the new day. We check our email, our FB, our Insta, our Snapchat. Has anyone texted us? Or tried to ring us? Next we look to don our costume for the day. We pore through our large wardrobe looking for the perfect outfit that matches our vibe. We check our bag for wallet, smartphone, car keys, travel pass, house keys and lunch. We check we wore our watch, jewelry, glasses, sunglasses. Don't forget the laptop/tablet and security pass for the office. Then we remember, oh yeah, I have to pay that bill, fill out that timesheet, grab that prescription, renew that license, buy that birthday present and organise the surprise party. This is on top of the stuff that we already robotically do because we're on autopilot when we do it, like get in the car, drive to the station, buy the morning coffee, read the paper. Just listing all of this down is exhausting. Yet we fritter away our energy on each of these things everyday. No wonder this time on earth is the densest that its ever been.
We spend so much of our waking time fearing we might miss out that we fill every second with what amounts to energetic clutter. Social media is something to occupy a few idle minutes, but in the scheme of things it's not necessary to our day. The same goes for watching the news on TV. If you can pick a few things out of that list above and intentionally take it out of your day, you'll have reclaimed some of your energy back. Then you can start to discern what person, place or thing deserves your energy, because you'll get something back out of that exchange.
I've started already, by removing online video news and TV watching out of my day. I've also decided to intentionally notice when I'm just idly scrolling with no purpose on social media....that's when I close the app. I'm not finished yet.
Your turn. What are you switching up today?
