I want to talk about energy. Meditative practices and yoga really deal with the harnessing and control of one’s own energy mechanism. When you dive into these things, you start to view things more in terms of energy than anything else. Time, money, food, relationships…everything becomes energy. The things you bring into your life can actually add to your energy or deplete you of it. Energy is wealth, your life force. It gives you power, strength, wisdom, and the ability to easily fulfill your wishes. When you are full of energy, you are lively, happy, and content. You work from a place of abundance and wealth. This place attracts the similar to you.
There is a strong misconception about negative energy and positive energy. Most believe negative energy to be “bad” and positive energy to be “good”. However, negative energy is really the LACK of energy. Positive energy is an abundance of energy. Negative energy takes and Positive supplies. Negative people are the takers and drainers and positive people are the givers and receivers.
There are certain tools and techniques you can use to replenish and control your energy. Meditation is primarily used to harness energy and yoga is used to control your energy. Powerhouse people are people who have learned to harness and control enormous amounts of personal energy. They are the ones who know how to keep themselves balanced and grounded. They are happy, cheerful, open to new people and ideas, expansive, lively, powerful, and successful in life. They have the ability to heal people around them just by showing up. They are warm, bright, and friendly. They forgive easily, and they are not guarded. They live freely and allow others to do the same. They dream big dreams and have the vision and energy to back it up. They are fearless and decisive. They move quick. They let go of the past as easily as they let go of the future. What they see is the now, because they understand that we as people are the most powerful in the now. What we do now determines our tomorrow.
Powerhouse people also have the ability to control their minds and their thoughts. They choose thoughts that are healing and progressive not only for themselves but everyone around them. They are immensely sensitive and as a result have an incredible intuition and instinct. Powerhouse people truly stand out without having to do much.
What I have experienced the most from learning how to harness and control my energy is the incredible ability to give and never be drained for too long. You become a never ending flow of abundance. I’ve become the type to be able to give just by showing up. I don’t even have to do much. Also, there is a sense of stability that comes with this. Your emotions are much more even keel. You become a lot less flaky. You have clarity in thought, vision, and action. Your ability to pull down your ideas and make them concrete increases. As a result, your ability to commit increases as well. You become much more sure of yourself and all that you do. The more blessed I become, the more blessed the people around me are.
This all sounds good, doesn’t it? However, this makes relationships a tad bit difficult for me.
You would think people would recognize this and show appreciation. However, not everyone is as aware of this exchange and positive people are too busy being happy and content to bring this to their attention. In my case, I see a lot of injustices done. My innate nature is extremely forgiving. So, I tend to let it go easily. It’s actually MORE draining to me to make the effort of correcting someone’s behavior towards me. I know that what I do speaks of my integrity. What others do speak of theirs. Things always come back full circle, and you always get back what you put out.
See, most people run on empty. In order to make up for it, they chase after things and people who will fill them back up. In other words, they feed off those who are full. They take, because in some odd way they either believe they won’t be given what they want, they don’t deserve what they want, or they simply don’t understand how to get what they need without the assistance of someone else. Behind every need is really a need for energy.
As I grow in energy, I find myself in the most shocking circumstances. I am a natural giver. I’ve always given my all to everything and everyone in my life. Even to the random passerby, I won’t let you leave without a kind gesture or smile. My energy in itself is incredibly warm and welcoming. I’m very aware of what I put out there, and I choose to put out love because some time ago along this path I realized that this is what I am. I am simply love.
The trouble comes when other people don’t realize that they too are love and when they are drained. Usually, their views on love are distorted. They see it as an action, thing, or emotion. To them, I become an easy target – a source to tap from. Someone that will always be there, and therefore has little value. So foolish, indeed. I’m always a mile ahead of these people. How come? Because with added energy, comes added awareness and the ability to move on quickly.
The biggest thing I’ve found is that with little effort even my natural common gestures can lead someone to believe that I am somehow over the top head over heels in love with them. In actuality, I’m in love with myself. I am love. So, everything I touch is painted with love. This includes the concern, care, and politeness I give. What they are getting is just glitter and a few sparks of what I truly am. However, they confuse this with some sort of desperate longing. This in turn, either scares them or some how convinces them they have some sort of power over me. I would like to make this clear. You feel loved in my presence, because I carry love with me everywhere I go. I’m abundant so I give of myself freely. I’m full, so I share. I’m also insanely protected. I have no reason to guard my voice, life, or heart because there is no threat. Protection is always provided for positive people. Again, it is called awareness.
I find people who think in terms of lack to be takers. Frequently, they like to play little “games”. They like to be rude. They like to sit back and think they have control and power of the situation, but this is quite the illusion. What they are looking for is a reaction – some sort of jarring release of energy from me. They are trying to take what I would naturally give so freely if they kindly asked for it. However, deep down we both know it doesn’t work. I can’t give a reaction to something I can see you so clearly doing. Again, awareness. Also, who is more powerful? The taker or the source? The source is never empty. Next time, just be polite. Be nice, and I’ll be kind to you back. Treat me the way you would want someone to treat you. We can both be happy. There won’t be any stealing, and there won’t be any debts to pay later. Believe me, there’s always a debt to pay later.
Gossiping is taking, playing games is taking, intentional rudeness is taking, lying is taking, cheating is taking, creating an intention to use or control someone is taking. More than taking, it is all stealing. In the end, the only person you are taking from is yourself. You take away your own ability to recognize your own power. You are telling the world and yourself that something in you is lacking or missing so you have to take and steal from another source.
I long for the day when everyone will become aware of this energy exchange. I long for the day when everyone will discover that we truly are vessels of abundance, and we don’t have to resort to control and power trips to feel good and happy. We don’t have to be competitive or take from each other. Energy only transforms, it is never destroyed. I long for the day when false pride and ego trips are overshadowed by genuine self confidence and fulfillment for everyone. Can you imagine the MAGIC we could create on this planet if we were all aware of this? Fear would be eliminated. Everything would be so expansive. Life is great now, but the microcosm can only be as great as the macrocosm it belongs to for we are not closed systems. We are a part of a greater whole.
In my personal life, I have yet to meet a man who makes me stand back in awe. I can’t wait to meet someone who inspires me to be a greater powerhouse than I’ve already set my intentions on being. I’ll be in awe of the man I can look up to… someone who has something to teach me about this world. He will carry the same warmth that I do. He will flow abundantly, because he is abundance. He will recognize that he too is love. So, he won’t need someone to PROVE themselves worthy. He will be confident enough not to take. He will give freely and be fearless. He will know exactly what he wants out of himself and life, and I will know myself well enough to feel my heart flutter when I see him. Like Neyo says, “I’m a movement by myself. But I’m a force when we are together”. It’ll be a union of positivity that will without a doubt attract the negative to take from it, but will always be left untouched.
The point of this post isn’t to share with you what I want in a companion. It’s more to share with you how someone who knows how to harness and manage their energy thinks. It’s empowering, and it’s done with compassion. It leaves everyone with the ability to feel supported, and it is inspiring. Positive energy creates progress and change. It creates hope for everyone. This isn’t about telling you how great I think I am. This is more about letting you know that you too can feel this great about yourself! We all have the ability to continuously grow in self power. Please make choices that are good for yourselves, and in turn good for others. Please become aware of yourself so you are left less confused. This will leave others around you less confused, and this will create a LOT of good “luck” for you. Things will flow a lot more in your life. Be conscious of how you treat yourself and others. It’ll return to you in dividends.
If you want some tools to help you please check out www.artofliving.org . I’m not officially affiliated with them. However, they have become family and have helped me immensely. The techniques are priceless and life changing. I’d also like to add that the Miss Universe and World pageants have used these techniques in the past to help cultivate a certain attraction factor in their participants. Life force is where it’s at.
