We all at some time or another have made this statement. I would say that this is the number one reason most of my clients meet with me, they have no energy, are dragging through their day, and are searching for a reason and a fix.
When I first began my work, the first thing I would do is assess the individual’s diet, as generally the first thing a professional looks at is nutrition. You put out what you take in. However, as I continue in my path to heal, I have come to find that 90% of the time diet is not the only problem. My belief is that all physical starts as emotional, spiritual or mental. Your subconscious mind brings you to awareness of these issues by physical symptoms such as: inability to digest food, headaches, body aches, sore throats, irritable bowel, etc. I believe that one of the main issues of fatigue, especially chronic fatigue is not just about what your eating, but what you are thinking.
Think of your energy like a bank account inside your body, which starts off completely full. What are you spending this energy on? Do you have poor energy management skills?
Pretend you start out with 100 energy points. When you wake up what is the first thing you do? Do you worry about something? (-5 energy points) do you complain that you have to go to work? (-5 energy points) do you dwell about something your did wrong in the past (-10 energy points). So, before you leave your bed your down to 80 points.
You then turn on the news. Everything you watch is absolutely negative, your spending EVEN MORE energy on this. Your lucky you have even 50 energy points left by the time you leave the house. Not only are you loosing energy by partaking in these things, but you are now vibrating these feelings of negativity and worry into the universe. No matter what you are thinking, past or present, you give that vibration off into the air, and the universe comes back with the exact same vibration. Starting your day expending your energy on worry and doubt will bring more of this to you. Watching negative things on TV will bring more negative things to manifest. So, not only are we wasting energy on things that deserve none of our attention, but we are creating more things to take our energy away!
What if instead of waking up and worrying, the first thing you did when you woke up was give thanks for your amazing life, the house you live in, even the toothbrush you use to brush your teeth. What if instead of watching something negative with your morning meal (which disturbs digestion any way) you listened to a positive message instead. Instead of depleting your energy your building it. You now have more energy than you started with when you woke up!
I believe we need to focus more on our energy management skills and improve this aspect of our lives before we even start to change our diets. As you go through your day, think before you react. Is it worth spending energy points on? Think about this carefully.
When on your way to work you get a flat tire. How will you spend your energy points on this situation? Swearing (-4) Yelling (-10) Worrying (-5) Being annoyed and angry the whole time you change the tire (-10). Or do you simply get out of the car CALMLY, assess the situation and think “well, maybe there is a divine purpose for this flat tire”, calmly change it, and head on your way?
We all have the choice on how we handle and react in a situation. How do you want to spend your energy? Worrying, yelling, and getting upset or angry does nothing but burn you out and ATTRACTS MORE OF THAT TO YOU. Every time you spend an energy point, that point goes out into the universe and the universe gives that point back in the exact way it was received. Remember this before you react, and think about how you want to spend your points.
