From one of my mentors:
BY MADISYN TAYLOR
Life energy flows through us like a swift stream, when there is nothing to obstruct it.
The essence of all being is energy. Our physical and ethereal selves depend on the unrestricted flow of life energy that is the source of wholeness and wellness. Though the channels through which this energy flows are open systems and influenced by factors outside of our control, we ultimately choose what impact these will have in our lives. It is up to us to identify and clear blockages in the energy field to ensure that flow is maintained. A healthy, grounded individual absorbs some portion of the energy emitted by other people and the environment, but this does not interrupt the continuous stream of balanced energy sustaining them. The same individual copes constructively with stress and upset, and they are not subject to the stagnation that frequently goes hand in hand with negativity. When we keep the energy in and around our bodies flowing harmoniously, we are naturally healthy, vibrant, and peaceful.
I have always believed what Madisyn speaks of, and some days my energy feild flows better than others. When I carry around thoughts like, I’m broken, I’m not good enough or it won’t help, I restrict the the flow of life’s energy through me and around me. When I allow my self to be affected by the energy’s in the environment around me, it can also pull me off my center. I find it to be a constant balancing act that never stops, is totally dynamic and ever changing.
When life’s energy flows through me like a swift stream and there is nothing to obstruct it, nothing seems impossible, everything is an opportunity, and I feel very good. And, when it doesn’t it pisses me off and I get back into thoughts of I’m not good enough, I’m broken etc.
To lessen the impact of life’s events I try to cultivate simple yet affirmative habits such as writing, meditating, yoga, spiritual studies, staying healthy through exercise and healthy eating, and a conscious effort as to how I’m feeling. For many years I had shut off the feeling component of my life thinking that true spirituality, empowerment and enlightenment came about without feeling. Shutting it down was easy because I learned to do it as a child, yet turning it back on has been difficult. It’s like learning about life all over again. What I am learning is that being in this illusionary body and having this illusionary experience causes me to have feelings and they have an impact. Hah!
As Madisyn goes on to say:
A strong and fluid energy field is the key that unlocks the doors of self-healing and peace of mind. Your awareness of the flow of energy sustaining you empowers you to take charge of your own well-being by taking steps to unblock, correct, and enhance that flow. Fear will likely be the culprit when you cannot identify the source of stagnation–you may simply be afraid to let go of what is obstructing the flow. Letting go can be challenging, but the exuberance you will feel when the flow is restored will be a welcome and blessed reward.
