Energy is all around us. We expend it when exercising. We receive it when eating. We benefit from it while flipping on a light switch…
But as human beings composed of energy, do we realize the sensitivity we have toward it in other human beings?
Have you ever walked into a room and instantly felt drawn to someone? It was as if you already knew them and everything in you wanted to strike up a conversation immediately.
Or has the opposite happened? You walk into a room and instantly feel repelled by someone. It could be a person you have never laid eyes on, but you feel a presence that you want to run from. Like the opposing ends of two magnets – you cannot get away fast enough.
As human beings we carry, emit, and receive energy.
And just like physical energy levels, our metaphysical energy levels vary from person to person. Some people vibrate on a high frequency, some low, some in between, and it can vary depending on the day.
High frequency vibration characteristics = love, optimism, hope, joy, peace, calm, happiness.
- These people are actively practicing mindful living, and consciously choose a high vibrational energy every day.
Low frequency vibration characteristics = fear, pessimism, denial, pain, anxiety, anger.
- These people, most often, are not aware of their emotions or their “interior life.” They are caught up in life’s circumstances and allow these exterior circumstances to dictate their happiness or lack thereof.
Moderate frequency vibration characteristics = waver between high and low frequencies depending on the day.
- These people are often beginning on a spiritual path and desire to live a mindful life, but are still stuck in some old, unhealthy low vibrational patterns.
I have been all of the above! But why am I telling you this? Because it is really important that we are aware of the types of energy we carry, emit, and receive. We have the power to choose.
I have been sensitive to energy for as long as I can remember. I possess empath tendencies – I have an innate sense for knowing what people are going through before they tell me. Sometimes this ensues in total elation where I feel like I’m on cloud 9, and sometimes the opposite is true, where being around someone leaves me totally depleted and exhausted. For years I have allowed these encounters to steer my day, week, month. And it often veers me waaaaaaaaay off track.
I, like you, am working toward my dreams every day, and I need all of the high vibrational energy I can muster to accomplish them. This means I need to be mindful of “refilling” my energy tank (doing things that bring me joy), and it also means I need to guard my energy and be careful and alert to whom I am sharing it with. It is so easy to fall into the habit of allowing others to dictate how we feel, but we do not have to.
All of us have the power to choose the type of energy we carry, emit, and receive. We do not have to be beholden to another’s energy – especially if it is vibrating at a low frequency. Even amidst tumultuous circumstances, we can choose to carry peaceful, kind, and loving energy. Just like in the same circumstances, people can choose to carry anxiety, fear, and doom. I know I am repeating myself here, but choose wisely what type of energy you carry and emit, and what type of energy you allow yourself to receive.
I tell you this, because I care about you. From the depths of my heart, I want you to live a life full of love and joy and the way I know how to contribute to that is by sharing the ways in which I find to healthfully pursue my dream, my purpose, my personal legend. Energy plays a vital role in this this pursual… High vibrational energy propels us forward, low vibrational energy keeps us stuck, or worse, moving backward.
May you receive a high vibrational energy from this post and may you go out into the world renewed, refreshed, empowered, and ready to dare life not to let you do what you love. 🙂
May I remind you…
You are amazing.
You are unique.
You are one of a kind.
Only YOU can do what you do the way that you do it. So go out there and do it.
