From time to time everyone experiences what feels like low energy. We complain of feeling under the weather, tired or lethargic. We feel like we don’t have enough energy to even move. It is very popular thought to believe that a ‘healer’ has the ability to receive positive energy from somewhere and channel it through to the client who needs it. When we feel down and out we like the idea that someone else can fix us. We need to re-frame our conceptions around energy and it’s manifestation in the human system. We manifest our lives essentially through the expression of four aspects; our spiritual, mental, emotional and physical bodies. Fact is that we always have the same amount of energy available to us – so what happens? Our body is a bio-electro-magnetic expression of energy that is connected to all energy created of our universe. We are always tapped in so to speak we just don’t always feel like it. There are 4 low energy myths that people commonly feel trapped by.
1. You can be full of energy one day and have none the next.
You always have the same amount of energy. Your energy system belongs and fits only with you. Your energy will be distributed throughout your 4 body system to accommodate its’ needs. When you feel out of balance try to recognize what you’ve done to exacerbate the situation, where exactly do you feel the weakest and where exactly your energy is being focused. Give yourself permission to quickly and easily understand and rectify the problem in order to re-balance the flows of energy in the body. Chronic low energy indicates a chronic issue of either a physical, emotional or psychological nature. Discover which it is and deal with it.
2. There are people who literally suck all the energy out of us.
You always have the same amount of energy. Your energy belongs and fits only with you. Your energy can only go where you allow it to go. No one can take anything from you if you don’t allow it. From time to time, however, we feel drained around certain people and situations. If you are feeling like your energy has been sucked from you, it is time to relearn your energy coping skills. There are only a few specific things that could be happening:
i) You are expanding your energy field to an uncomfortably large parameter – usually in an attempt to be all things to all people; bring your attention back to center core, allow your field to shrink and breathe it back out to a comfortable place. Allow your field to contract and expand freely without intention.
ii) You are drawing your energy in to an unbearably tight parameter, in order to control your space and feel safe. The energy systems of the body expand and contract constantly, trying to control them will create fatigue, irritability and resentment. Don’t be afraid to be involved with another.
iii) You are sending or allowing energy to be drawn towards another’s field where it doesn’t belong. You cannot use your energy to heal another. You cannot exchange energy with someone else for a permanent result. Check your ego, practice detached compassion, find your core and regroup.
iv) You’ve surrendered your individuality and have merged fields with others in common situations. It can take time to restore your own field if you linger mentally with the situation after you’ve physically left it, as in coming home after work. Take some time alone to regroup and be selfish, draw attention to your breathing, drink some water and relax before starting the next round of responsibilities.
3. You have to rest today to build up your energy again after working so hard yesterday.
You always have the same amount of energy. If you have exerted yourself in an unusual manner your useable energy will have to be redistributed to compensate for the situation and it may take a while for the energy to re-balance. You can assist this by congratulating yourself on your growth and express gratitude. Gratitude will help you find a new point of balance.
4. You have no energy when you are sick.
You always have the same amount of energy! Your available energy is only being used in different ways for different purposes than when you are well. When people get sick the body mind consciousness automatically applies all usable energy to where it is needed the most. When the person stubbornly tries to work through it at a normal pace, doing normal things, they will soon begin to feel as though they have no energy. If usable energy is spent trying to keep pace that needs to be directed into boosting the immune system or healing muscle systems, then the body messages of “STOP, I CAN’T KEEP GOING!” get louder, and they will keep on getting louder until the body finally crashes.
The body mind knows how to distribute energy to keep the entire being, body, mind and soul in good functioning order. Pay attention and listen. Show yourself respect by doing what you need to do to maintain balance. Trust in the innate intelligence that is locked within your cellular makeup and allow your conscious mind to intuitively work cooperatively and harmoniously for your highest good.
