There are many reasons our most common complaint is we are ‘just so tired!’
We Are Moving into a Connected, Energetic Reality
Whether you believe in cosmic energy affecting us physically or not, we are in a time of leaving a very physical, three-dimensional, individualistic reality and moving into a connected, energetic reality. I’ve heard it said that we are becoming solar and SOULAR. We are gaining a better understanding of how, not only our bodies, minds and souls work together, but also how we, as a collective work together for our individual and group benefit. (or don’t, to our detriment). This transition is affecting us physically. We are experiencing more and more ‘energetic’ type dis-eases. Conditions such as chronic pain, attention deficit and autism were cited less than 75 years ago—attention deficit was identified in 1980. Our physical bodies are struggling to catch up to energy shifts that have occurred and are occurring all around us.
Your Energetic Power
We, however, have a say in where our energy goes. Unfortunately, many of us are unaware of our energetic power and how we spend it or how we allow it to drain. I’ll give you an experiment to try on your own;
Find a quiet place where you can be undisturbed. Lay on the floor, or sit comfortably in a chair in a way that you are supported and can close your eyes. Take 3 deep breaths, releasing each fully. Relax into your resting pose on each exhale. On your next inhale, visualize bringing yourself, a piece of yourself or a strand of your energy back from all the people you encountered today – each one, bring a piece of yourself back into where you are seated/laying. Then, bring yourself back from each item/activity you accomplished on your to-do list. Next, bring yourself back from everything you are worried about. After that, locate each area of the body where you are experiencing pain, inflammation or discomfort; bring your energy back from each of those areas. Can you feel it? Are you feeling more whole? Less scattered and drained?
Now, imagine how much of your energy you have stored up in any ‘dramas’ that are currently happening in your life. How much energy, that is you, exists in all your past hurts, unresolved conflict and or childhood trauma? Think about multi-tasking. How often are you distracted by your phone when a real person is present with you?
You Get To Choose
We, as a collective, used to be able to push through, chin up, carry on in an age when our environment was much more physical. We don’t seem to be able to do that anymore, without consequences to our physical bodies, our emotional bodies and our states of mind. Everything is energy and we are energy. Our thoughts are an energetic resource as are our feelings. These energetic forces create our reality.
What if you started seeing your energy as a resource, like money, that you can spend or save? You choose where you direct and invest it. You also, as a responsible resource owner, need to measure if that energy has been invested wisely. Is a situation costing you? Every unresolved conflict and/or past trauma is an energy drain. If you want to make a change in your life or desire to create something new and your energy bank is depleted, you have an energy deficit. If you keep drawing on that energy at a deficit you WILL create an energy crisis.
Do you have a practice of calling your energy back? You are better able to make decisions, changes and create when all of you is present in real time. You ultimately decide where your energy goes, no one can take it from you.
