5 Simple Steps to Boundless Energy!
“At times I feel as if I am spread out over the landscape…”- Carl Jung
If you left your phone at your friends’ house, you’d quickly spin a u-turn and pick it up, right? What if you forgot your beloved water bottle at yoga class? Would you buy a new one? Drive back in traffic to get it? Do you have any idea that you also leave your energy all over town, too?
That’s right, I said energy. Just as a snail leaves a trail behind as he goes along his merry way, our precious life force – the very thing powering creations, as basic as taking a shower to the complexities of running a company or inspiration for a musical masterpiece – trails behind every little thought that we have. If you’re wandering down the street and notice a beautiful pair of shoes in the window, you drop a little energy off there.
Standing in line for a coffee, eavesdropping on juicy conversation between the people in front of you – you leave a little energy there. A business meeting, a conference, a concert…. a little bit of you stays there long after you’ve left. Scrolling through the FB Newsfeed your energy goes out to each and every person whose status updates and photos you see. Have you ever noticed how tiring cruising the Internet actually leaves you? In actuality the thing that is really leaving you, is your energy.
The good news is – just as easily as you left it behind – you can get it back. Without driving anywhere, paying any money or spending more than five minutes of your time, you can enliven yourself to the same level as if you just awoke from a power nap or finished a great workout. This simple activity is the ultimate tool for those who want to energize themselves almost instantly.
Step 1: Sit in a quiet place with your feet planted firmly on the ground.
Step 2: Envision bright cords of energy grounding from your feet into the center of planet.
Step 3: Hold your hands in front of you four to five inches apart.
Step 4: Say inside your head, “I am calling my energy back,” as you recall all of the places you’ve been during your day and visualize your energy (I like to use golden sparkles, but however you see your energy is fine) returning to that space between your hands. See it return from every thought, interaction, reaction that you’ve had that day. (You can also do this first thing in the morning and call your energy back from your dreams, or more accurately, the astral dimension).
Step 5: You’ll begin to feel your hands heat up as your energy returns to you. You can cradle it in between your palms feeling the magnetic force. Now, draw that energy in your hands to your heart and deposit it back into you. I like to say a little affirmation like, “I am calling my energy back to enliven myself for my day.”
It may not feel completely natural to you at first, but if you follow these simple steps you will find yourself energized and totally amazed by this superpower, which is always at your disposal!
