*ENERGY* This word has taken on a whole new meaning for me in the past couple of years. It actually hit me like a ton of bricks (flashed like neon lights really) within this sentence: “God is *ENERGY*” This life-altering sentence was spoken to me by my acupuncturist, one of a few dear spiritual mentors in my life. A piece of me woke up immediately when I heard it. I was stirred to investigate and thirsty to learn more. ...God is *ENERGY*. It still resonates deep within me.
Since I had recently gained understanding in the truth that God is in us and we are all God => God experiencing, then that means that we are *ENERGY*. Doesn’t that have amazing implications for the daily choices we make!? This knowledge sure raised the bar for the choices I go through life making.
I ask myself, will this fuel my energy? Or drain it? Suddenly that doughnut I was craving wasn’t an object of my obsession that I was struggling to maintain willpower over, but became an inanimate icky object for me to make a choice about - and obviously the way I feel after eating a doughnut isn’t the way I feel when I’m enjoying my optimal *ENERGY*. The relationship I had with that doughnut suddenly became impersonal and something I didn’t have room for in my life… in my soul’s journey. Now, will I eat another doughnut sometime in my life? Possibly. I’m human. And yet maybe not! ...I haven’t missed doughnut-hangover sluggishness for the two years I’ve been doughnut-free. In my daily routine and as I’m going along on my journey, I’m no longer ‘tempted’ by them. And I definitely don’t drive my car to the gas station specifically to buy one for breakfast anymore! Doughnuts just don’t align with my goals now. Haha - that’s kind of a silly sentence :)
I don’t believe that it’s any coincidence that the further I go up my “Mountain’s stairways,” the higher my Energy’s vibration becomes. This is our goal as we evolve. *I’ve read that somewhere, and I’ve been trying to remember where. I will reference the source when I do and be sure to share more of his/her insights on this process of raising your vibration. It’s fascinating and one of my numerous new goals.
There are a variety of ways a person can increase and cultivate *ENERGY*. Brian and I started doing 10 minutes of Qi Gong every morning and evening and have noticed a remarkable improvement! The kids even enjoy it. More about this in a future post. For now you could read this article and see the program we use here. Ortho-bionomy, acupuncture and NUCCA adjustments have all benefited us greatly as well! More about these techniques to come, be excited. Since we’re all adults here… let me remind you that sex and orgasms are a fun way to clear your energy pathways and increase Qi (wink wink!). Also… the sun! I know it fuels me, gives me more energy and that I deeply miss it in the winter. There’s something to these simple observations - I will explore these in the future as well. In fact there’s a great resource I plan to share about this, but I need to request permission first. Stay tuned!
Alright, back to making your way up your Mountain’s stairways… Watch out!! If you take some steps up your stairways, you’ll be given more energy to spend on yourself, your goals and others! Be ready. Have a plan. What will you do once you’ve cleared your mind, energized your body and lightened your load so to speak? … reminds me of an inside joke my hubby and I have - “Be careful… if you eat that grilled chicken salad instead of that yucky casserole… it’ll force you to skip the nap you’d originally allowed yourself to take and work out instead!” … True story! We ate ourselves right into a killer workout one Saturday last summer, without even planning on it or needing to talk ourselves into it. We were seriously going to take naps that afternoon while the kids took theirs!
If possibilities were limitless - because they are - you’re in charge of creating your life (remember? God in you, creating) - what would you do? Who would you change yourself into? Now… get out there and raise your vibration, cultivate your *ENERGY* … and go kick ass at your own Life!
*If you feel inclined, comment below about the goals you choose for yourself. What will you do with your newfound *ENERGY*? Let’s make a vision board of sorts to share our aspirations. Maybe they’ll inspire you to choose the same goals and steps to add to your own stairway!
I am a wife, mom to two and teacher. I have a lot of things I'd like to go after in this lifetime!
