What is energy, and why I am obsessed with this concept?
Well, for starters, it is something I craved for many years of my life.
I remember in college a friend used to call me “Lento” which means slow in Spanish, and apparently this stuck with me for good reason.
I was slow, because I simply had no energy.
In my time in the Corporate world, I remember literally forcing myself up every morning amidst the complete lack of energy or drive.
Friends would say to me, I really don’t envision you waking up early to make it to work.
What choice did I have, I thought to myself? The bills don’t pay themselves.
On weekends, I stayed bed till 2pm, because I was exhausted from the work week and just craved REST.
My life was DRAINING.
Energy was just a word to me. It had no meaning, because I never truly FELT the force of LIFE that I now know energy to be.
But again, I felt I had no choice.
I had the mindset that my paycheck was a means to an end, and that end would be the 2 days a week where I could finally be myself.
I LIVED for the weekends.
Hey, 2 out of 7 isn’t so bad right?
28% of my life is as I desire…and the other 72% is controlled by forces beyond mine.
Until the day when it SPARKED for me that my life was a direct correlation of beliefs that were infused in me.
They were not my beliefs, yet somehow as human beings we are insane enough to truly BELIEVE that this is true?
Who created this so-called TRUTH?
I adopted them from the world around me, and made them my own.
I guarantee these stories have ruled your life too.
“What other choice do I have?”
“When I make xxx, then I will be happy!”
“You have to work HARD to make money, be successful, have all you desire, and be happy.”
Or the classic tale of….”Money doesn’t grow on trees.”
Surely it doesn’t, but energetically YOU can plant the seeds of your money tree.
So, theoretically, MONEY DOES GROW ON TREES!
These beliefs can EMPOWER you, or they can destroy you.
Beliefs are simply ENERGY, and the life force of your mind.
As the great Einstein said,
Everything is energy and that’s all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.
Energy is the momentum of your LIFE.
It is the immersion of science meets spirit.
Physically, you can understand this concept through science.
Spiritually, you can feel this ENERGY and use it to your advantage to attract ALL you desire.
Energy is the life force that runs through you.
Energy is your FUEL.
The yogis know this as Prana, the Sanskrit word for life force.
The Taoists call it Chi, and have charted its movement throughout the body.
It is known as Mana in Polynesia, Ruach in Hebrew (which also means “wind”), and Ki to the Japanese.
But energy runs so much deeper than feeling physically vibrant, or mentally sharp.
Energy is EVERYTHING around you, and inside of you.
So if you are feeling overwhelmed, lost, and always trying to play catch up with the never-ending to do list, this is a simple fix.
Energy in must meet energy out.
Meaning, you cannot give what you don’t have.
If you are expending more energy than what you take in, you will feel depleted.
Yet most of us feel we are invincible, especially with the ridiculous demands of today’s world that technology should make us faster, work harder, and accomplish more.
Or….maybe you don’t feel invincible, but your boss makes you feel the pressure to perform so.
And then there’s your family to take care of, husband and kids. Parents. Grandparents. Grandkids.
And life’s everyday demands. Grocery shopping. Clean the house. Pay the bills.
Keep everything in order.
Oh yeah, and then there’s YOU. Do you even have time for that?
My point being, that the only way to get out from under is to shift your life by understanding where your ENERGY goes?
Because Einstein was so wise by saying, “Energy is everything.”
Money is energy.
Colors are energy.
Your relationships are energy.
The home you live in is energy.
Numbers are energy.
Time is energy.
Nature is energy.
Your thoughts are energy.
And YOU, my dear are ENERGY.
You are the purest form of energy there is, and this is the LIFE that radiates within you.
How can understanding this concept truly shift your life?
- First, gain awareness of what is affecting your energy. As I mentioned before, energy in should match energy out.
- Take inventory by creating a simple list. On one side, list everything that gives you energy. On the other side, list what drains your energy.
- Here’s the real kicker! Highlight the items from this list that you DO MOST OFTEN.
- See what sparks. What you do most often is simply a habit, it does not HAVE TO BE YOUR LIFE. Thoughts are simply energy to which YOU control. Liberate yourself from these inherited stories. They are not YOU.
- Swap ONE item from the energy out list to the energy in list. This is what will help you align your energy to your highest potential!
However, what will help you FEEL this newfound energy everyday is a practice.
And that can start with a simple ritual that will take no more than 10 minutes a day.
