Do you ever have days where your energy just feels sluggish, like you’re sinking in quicksand, and before you know it your entire world feels “stuck”… for no apparent reason? It’s like no amount of coffee can kick-start your awesomeness?
When this happened to me, I used to think it was Mercury Retrograde, that time of the month, planetary alignments or a myriad of other things where everything just went sideways leaving me feeling overwhelmed, discouraged and not wanting to go outside.
Often, I would envision crawling back into bed, for an undetermined amount of time, and not leaving until the storm passed by!
But, life doesn’t stop, kids need you, your business needs you and countless other things that demand your attention and time need you.
When I feel stuck energetically it’s often the result of:
• Something I haven’t acknowledged
• Family drama
• Allowing myself to be distracted or pulled off course
• Beating myself up for forgetting something or messing up
• Hidden Resentments
• Energetically entangled (when people energetically, often unknowingly, hook into our energy and on some level we are allowing them to)
And most, if not all, of these choices we make are unconscious.
Let’s take energetic entanglement as an example…
You meet a friend for lunch and she’s going through a painful divorce. At the end of your time together, you feel drained, angry or frustrated, perfectly mirroring her energy. Chances are your friend has ‘hooked’ into your energy. Or, you may work in a busy office dealing with countless people, phone calls and clients each day. The same energetic entanglement can happen there.
I know for myself, running my own business, volunteering at my daughter's school and working with clients each week, there can be a great deal of energy floating around in my world.
Just to be clear, this energy isn’t coming from a bad place and there isn’t anyone trying to put a hex or spell on you… although some people CAN send toxic energy your way.
(Someone popped into your mind didn’t they?!)
In order to clear away all the energies that are not yours, that do not add value to your world, and come back to who you really are, it’s important to cleanse your energy daily. You may even feel guided to do this cleansing at different times throughout your day if things are more intense for you.
The following is a prayer that is going to clear your energy, ensuring that only your frequency is around you and will bring back your clarity to focus on what lights you up and help you make a conscious choice to not take on energies that are not yours.
Understand that we pick up so many thoughts, feelings and emotions that do not belong to us and I want to reassure you that you are not alone, we all pick up on the people and different energies around us. Utilizing this easy technique, you will feel the energy shift and start to discern each thought, feeling and emotion that doesn’t belong to you.
This technique is a must-do for me and I invite you to try it for yourself.
Repeat the following silently or out loud:
Dear Source (Universe, Creator, God)…
I ask that every thought, feeling, resentment, attachment, judgement, conclusion and anything else I haven’t mentioned that is not mine, that is not 100% Divine in nature, be cleared and released from my energy in all ways, spaces, time and realities with ease and grace.
Please fill every cell, molecule and space in between with your divine light and love. As I breathe in this light and love, I begin to emit this energy to the world around me. I choose to no longer engage in any attachment that does not bring me into my highest potential of consciousness and possibilities. My energy now glows at the highest vibration of love, gratitude and abundance.
Thank you, it is done, Amen.
This is an amazing tool to use as soon as you can’t really get a handle on why your sense of flow and accomplishment has diminished. With practice you'll get to a place where you'll instantly know if something isn't yours and you'll be able to energetically - kick it out - and get on with your amazing life.
I invite you to practice this technique every day for 7 days and see what happens for you!
Sending so much love,
