Many of us have been waiting, hoping and even praying for the health concerns to subside and a sense of normalcy in our lives to return. The reality is that we may currently be experiencing a new normal. I often speak of energy awareness and practicing good energetic hygiene, but are you aware of your energy pulls? The pulls I’m referring to are those people, places and things that pull at and affect our energy, especially in a negative way. We may consciously choose to invest energy in someone or something OR they may be affecting our energy without our consent (and even conscious knowing).
To explain further, the Solar Plexus chakra, which is located in our abdominal area, is our power center. Begin tuning in to when you feel energy pulls affecting this area. Feelings of nervousness, anxiety or unsettled energy are some ways it may appear.
I invite you to take a moment and spend some time in reflection. Allow whatever and whomever to come into your mind and conscious awareness. As these thoughts flow through, become aware of how often you spend time dwelling on something you need to do – a task that needs to be finished, a project that needs to be completed, errands to be ran, a phone call to be made or email to be sent. Also, become aware of those people in your life that seem to be a distraction or feel exhausting to be around. These examples as well as many other situations are all energy pulls whether we fully realize it or not.
Put your energy into building what is creative, valuable and empowering.
And you won’t have to constantly fight against what is destructive and draining.
~ Ralph Marston
As you feel led, I encourage you to become more aware of your own energy pulls and then choose to eliminate the pull. Either complete the task or stop focusing energy on it. Cocooning involves pulling your energy in, which may also involve establishing boundaries, as you become more aware of energy drains.
Afterwards, intentionally gather your energy bringing it back to you. Providing a visual, I literally move my arms and hands in a gathering motion and envision that I am restoring the energy to the Solar Plexus chakra that was previously disbursed. Practicing good energetic hygiene is a must. Start by grounding and centering your energy; then clear your auric field, cut energetic cords and keep your chakras cleared and balanced. You’ll feel so much better when you do – physically, mentally, emotionally and definitely energetically!
