Here we are in another holiday season complete with all the joys, stresses and busyness that it brings. I am so aware of how I have changed over the years in terms of how I experience this time of year…and also aware of where there are still changes to be made! 🙂
My perspective and expectations have undergone a major overhaul sometimes due to my conscious efforts and sometimes due to circumstances around me. I find it much easier and less painful to change because I am staying more conscious and being proactive regarding my inner state than if I go unconscious and find I am caught in a swirl of non-productive thoughts and emotions that drag my vitality down. Staying in touch with my energy flow helps me to remain present, conscious and aware of what I need to know, what I am feeling, while providing the means to shift to a more life enhancing position mentally, physically and emotionally.
How has your holiday perspective and/or experience changed (or not) over the years? Would love to hear your responses in the comment box below!
Have you ever noticed that when you are in a funk and have no energy, feel down, depressed, exhausted that something great can happen and all of a sudden you are filled with energy and ready to go when just a moment before you were barely able to move? We’ve all had those times but perhaps have not thought about exactly what was going on that caused the shift.
We experience our lives through our energy systems. When things feel good we tend to allow our energy to flow, to be connected to the infinite energy available to us…we think and feel in positive ways and experience vitality. When something negative or unpleasant occurs we tend to shut down…in our minds and our hearts… perhaps throughout our whole being. We close ourselves off from the supply of energy around us as well as closing the flow within us. We do not realize it, but this also traps not only our energy but also the memory and pain of the event. This sets up a situation where the pain can be triggered again through a similar event in the future. In addition, since we do not want to feel the pain we use considerable energy to keep it at bay inside us which further depletes the flow of our vitality and along with it our capacity to feel good. The result is that we tend to limp along with compromised energy supplies.
Why Close Down?
We instinctual close off ourselves out of a need to protect. This is natural, however, if we do not then open up again and release what is trapped inside then we compromise our energy, vitality and ultimately our health and wellbeing.
Being in touch with your energy system, noticing where and how you are closing off and learning to release difficult feelings can help restore your flow of vitality so you can feel good more often than you feel bad. It takes self-awareness and practice as well as effective methods to learn how to manage your energy. It is well worth the effort given the return of vitality and wellbeing to you and your life.
