“Just like a fish isn’t aware that it is surrounded by water, people aren’t always aware that they are surrounded by energy.”
I am a very sensitive person and have been for as long as I can remember. I used to think it was a bad thing that I would cry at the drop of a hat, or get a laughter high for no reason at all. I’ve been told to “stop being so sensitive” my whole life, but I have learned to accept this personality trait of mine. Recently, I have learned that not only am I sensitive with my emotions, I am also extremely sensitive to the energy that surrounds me.
I’m a firm believer that the energy that surrounds us is what affects our moods and emotions, our connection to other people, and basically our whole outlook on life. It can pull us into darkness, if we allow it. But it can also pull us back into the light. Since I am more sensitive to this energy than most people, I am always searching for ways to control the energy that surrounds me. These are a few things I’ve personally done to find the good energy; the sunshine, the glow, the “high on life” feeling. It’s not always there, and sometimes it takes some extra effort, but if I try hard, I can usually find it. And I believe you can to.
How I’ve personally found the light:
- Find that inspiration: this is can be as simple as listening to your new favorite podcast, to buying a plane ticket and having something to look forward to. When you are feeling inspired, your brain will soak in good energy. You will have an urge to exercise, create, and achieve. And nothing will get in your way.
- Get outside: I believe that the natural energy the Earth has is the best energy of all. Thank you Mother Nature. If you find yourself falling into the darkness or are feeling a sense of negative energy, get outside. Climb a mountain, swim in the ocean, look at the stars. Your body will absorb the energy from Mother Nature, and it will have noting but a positive effect on your body and mind.
- Start from the inside: All of us have positive and negative energy within us and what we choose to do with it is up to us. I believe that what we put out, we get in return. Sometimes it is more difficult to find the little light within us, but if we look for it and share it with other’s, the positive energy will eventually return to us. Practice small acts of kindness, compliment others’, and most of all, even when you don’t feel like it, keep smiling.
- Other people’s energy: This has definitely been the biggest learning curve for me in the last year. I never realized how sensitive I was to others’ energy until recently, and learning this about myself has opened my eyes to a whole new social world. I know that there is good energy and bad energy in everyone and I have always tried to treat others’ like they’re only full of good energy. But, recently I have learned that even if people are full of good energy, it doesn’t mean that it is always compatible with ours’. Pay attention to how you feel after you spend time with someone. Do you feel better about yourself or worse? People can have good intentions or be a great friend, but that doesn’t always mean they will bring you light. Our souls weren’t made to connect to every other person, and spending time with people that you don’t feel connected to can pull you away from the light.
I could probably write a whole novel on my views on human connection because it’s been one of my favorite topics lately, but I will save that for a later post.
For now I will leave you with this;
There is good and bad energy everywhere, in everything, and in all of us. Look for the light, find the sunshine. It may be difficult, but I promise it is always there. It may come and go, or it may stay for a while. Don’t ever stop searching. And most importantly, when you discover it, remember you have the power to let it in or shut it out.
Onto the next adventure, Wren
