Energetically balanced – what does that even mean? Being energetically balanced means that you are very “in tune” with your nervous system. You sense, you feel and your intuition is in play.
When you become energetically balanced, the old saying, “You can feel the tension in the air…” becomes real. There are other sayings that are ages old, like “You felt him walk into the room…” or “You could cut the tension with a knife…”
It means that you can literally feel where your energy and the energy of others are either in-sync or clashing.
With it, you begin to realize there are people around you that lift you, and likewise, those people in our lives that suck our energy right out. I call the second kind an “energetic vampire”.
These are the people that “really want to go to lunch and hear about where your life is going…” and then dump all of their problems and frustrations on the table. I marvel at the abrupt, “I always feel SO much better after talking to you!” THEY leave feeling great and you are left feeling fatigued and drained.
Most people are not even aware of this energy infusion or big energy-sucking going on. But, it’s real!
Take a moment and think about a time when you truly shared with a friend. Positive energy flowing both ways. Each person able to hear some and share advice – from the heart. Remember how you walked away with the feeling of being complete?
Turn your palms face-up and shut your eyes. Can you sense the gentle radiating energy that is in them? In yoga, we call this your Prana, your life force and guess what? It has an expiration date!
What if you could actually track the amount of energy in and out of your Prana? If you only had an allotted amount of energy to run your household for a year, how would you use it? You’d pay attention to how it is being spent because you wouldn’t want to run out before the year is up right?
Well, the reality is YOU ONLY HAVE SO MUCH ENERGY. Allow yourself to say No, at times. And, look for those people that help you find energy and renewal.
Allow the energy vampires to find someone else to suck energy from…Spend your Prana wisely!
