Have you ever had one of those days where life just feels heavy? There's certain energy that seems to be weighing you down, circling around, pulling your mood and energy level down. What about those moments where you feel as high as can be? When you feel light, joyful and full of bright energy.
As we all know, energy is a constant and therefore it will shift up, down, in and out, and all around all the time. It's natural to have an ebb and flow with energy. Different energy levels key us into to what is happening internally and externally in our worlds.
There's this funny thing that can happen to us when we are in a low energetic space. We feel the need to "fix it". We want to escape from this low energetic feeling. We may quickly reach outward for something to shift this energy. However, I have found it's important to reach inward and move into this energy. Allow yourself to completely embrace and step into this energy without the need to change it.
What we resist, persists. When we try to escape the energy, it will continue to grow bigger and stronger. Things are perfect just as they are all the time. The low or heavy energetic feelings are there for a specific purpose. It's important to become a silent observer, to listen to it and to invite the feelings to flow out with this energy. It's not always easy to sit with this energy but if you can just hold on and listen, it can be a great teacher.
Allow yourself time to sit and listen with the understanding that all energy is constant, yet forever morphing and changing. Being able to embrace the lows, will allow you to deepen your ability to live in the NOW. Being able to sit with the lows will allow you to also sink deeper into the middles and highs. Each energetic level is a teacher and ride to go with and flow with.
I understand this can be a challenge due to the fast paced nature of society. We are expected to do more and to do it with a smile. However, you can pay attention to your own pace and energetic levels and honor them. Being able to embrace all energetic levels will lead you to a place of acceptance with each moment. It will lead you to a place of better coping skills for when times feel rough.
You can cultivate this deeper awareness with the understanding that each moment is a teacher you can simply be witness to while knowing it's all temporary.
