Feeling stuck? Low energy got you down? Let’s take a look at what is draining you.
Of course food is key in maintaining a healthy energy level. When we eat foods that are alive, they bear life. We feel more vital. We have more natural energy. When we eat foods that are dead (packaged), you feel bloated, sluggish and tired. I teach these tools in my Energize program.
Food is very important to maintaining optimal energy but there are other factors that are affecting your energy level too. The decisions we make (or don’t make) on a regular basis have more impact on how you feel than you realize.
1. Overwhelm – sometimes we reach those points in our lives where we don’t know what to do, where to turn and everything is so tightly held together that you don’t know what to do first so you end up doing nothing. Being stuck is a huge energy drain. It feels like everything is piling up on you and many times it is. The problem is, you lack the energy to do anything about it. You feel stuck so the pile grows bigger and bigger and your willingness to do anything about it decreases. Now, your energy level and health suffer big time. You would be AMAZED at what I’ve seen clear up for people physically when they start cleaning up their lives.
2. Fear – Fear is the silent killer. Fear quietly strangles the life and energy right out of you. Fear is like an enchantress. It captivates your attention and robs you of your precious energy. The more you focus on your fear, the more it drains you. It keeps you from moving forward which eventually creates overwhelm as discussed above. Fear causes you to contract which keeps you cut off from your Source energy. Contraction = Energy Blockages (physically, emotionally and spiritually). Blockages can play out in many different ways in your life.
3. Indecision – is a HUGE energy drain! When you put off making important decisions, it quite literally drains you. Your life is trying to flow along like a river. When you come to a crossroad, it’s important to decide so you can keep flowing. Otherwise, you exert lots of energy to resist the flow. Imagine how much energy it takes to hold back a dam. That’s essentially what you are doing when you hang out in indecision. It takes an incredible amount of energy to carry around multiple things. Sometimes you just have to choose so you can keep moving.
There are more but these are the three most common energy drains that I help my clients resolve. And as you can see they are all closely related to one another. You can see how hanging out in fear or indecision can quickly lead to overwhelm. It’s very important to get into the habit of staying in the flow of your life.
But what happens when you’ve been clinging to the side for so long and you’re terrified to let go? What if you’ve created a whole pool of stagnation trying to avoid the flow of river? After all, the river can be turbulent at times.
The answer is TRUST! You HAVE TO TRUST! You have to trust yourself! Trust God (your Higher Power) and trust the flow that is your life! You may have had a reason at one point in your life to close down and to stop trusting but you can learn to open again. Trusting doesn’t mean that nothing “bad” will ever happen again (things you don’t like). It means trusting that your life does have meaning and that it is unfolding exactly as it needs to to move you further along your healing path.
It’s trusting that you can handle it. You have more resources now. You will know what to do when the river bends, when you reach those turbulent waters. You can learn to navigate them. You can do this!
Holding on, contracting, blocking the flow - keeps us in the dark. The truth is – there is unlimited abundance available to each and every one of us. But we have to be brave enough, committed enough and clear enough to open back up so we can receive it. We have to be willing to expand our view. We have to step out in faith and learn to trust again.
PS. Do you feel stuck in your life? I can help. Sometimes we just need someone to sit down and help us untangle the knots we’ve created. We can sit down and pull them apart one by one. You will regain more clarity and energy as you go. Get your life back! Don’t keep sitting around in the dark by yourself. Start trusting and let someone help! <3
