Feeling a little blah?
Could use an energy boost?
I’ve got something to help you out *and it’s not what you think*
If you have been feeling depressed, uneasy or something has been off, what has your heart or spirit been telling you to do that you’ve been ignoring?
There is a level of truth telling TO ourselves ABOUT ourselves that’s important. If your heart or spirit is telling you something and you ignore it, you are stuffing your energy… and it’s gonna come out in other ways. Some not so pretty… like unhappiness, uneasiness and disease.
There were years I was unhappy, depressed and bummed. It wasn’t hormones and it wasn’t clinical depression. I was doing my best to be the perfect wife and mom and I had buried parts of myself… my fun, adventurous side, my feeling that I was meant to do something else and serve women. I had that tickle in my spirit but I kept ignoring and stuffing it. I didn’t know how to move forward, so that kept me from any type of movement. I didn’t make a change until I was so unhappy I wasn’t willing to keep living that way.
By listening to my heart and taking care of myself, bit by bit my energy came back. I gave myself the time to tune in and listen to my truth and I started feeling passionate again. I didn’t feel like sleeping so much. I felt inspired and had access to energy I didn’t have before.
Another area you can leak your energy is truth telling about yourself to others.
Truth telling to others is when what you think, what you say, what you feel and what you do are all in alignment.
A couple years ago I found out my Grandma was really sick. People would ask how I was doing and I would say I was “Fine” and put on an “I’m okay face.” Even those that knew about my Grandma, I would still stay really positive and hopeful on the outside. On the inside I was freaking out and absolutely terrified I was going to lose her. I had lost my Mom to cancer when I was younger so when I heard she was sick, I went worst case scenario in my mind. I was really sad and scared.
When I really told how I felt, there was an enormous weight lifted off my shoulders. Trying to “hold it together” is exhausting. It takes a lot of energy to hold our social masks up and not be total alignment with our truth.
Leave a comment and let me know which of these two areas sucks your energy and what you do to live in alignment with your truth.
