We as a collective are currently going through some major energy shifts. I personally feel we're all being called on some level to step into a higher consciousness, closer to our soul selves. Our beautiful planet Earth is also shifting into a higher frequency, and her energetic shifts are affecting ours as well.
Are you feeling it? The intensity on some days, the pull towards something you can't quite put your finger on...it can be a little discombobulating. In today's post, I'm going to share some daily energy clearing practices to help you connect within and release anything in your field that isn't serving you.
The benefits of balanced, cleared energy
Energy is everything. Our bodies, thoughts and emotions are all energy and affect our field. Stress, fear, and anxiety shrink our energy field, while love, surrender, and forgiveness literally expand it.
It is so extremely normal to feel stress, fear, and anxiety. It comes with the package of this illusion of separation we signed up for before we came here. Our powerful and eager-to-evolve souls came knowing this, and intended to be present with it and transcend it.
Not to stuff it away, not to deny it, not to feel guilt or shame for feeling it...to be present with it, and surrender to it in order to transcend it.
It all starts with tending to our energy. When you take time every day to balance your energy, you are automatically bringing yourself into the present moment, acknowledging what's in your field, and gently releasing it.
This in turn eases and soothes any stress, fear, and anxiety. You step back into your power, which is a place of love and higher awareness.
You are energy. Your body is first energetic before it is physical. Your thoughts and emotions are energy. The energy clearing and balancing tips below will help immensely to keep your energy field free and flowing. You'll really feel the difference!
1. Donna Eden's daily energy routine
Donna Eden is this beautiful person whom I truly believe is an energy healer from the spirit world here to help us during this time of transition. She was born able to see people's energy and has worked most of her adult life as an energy healer.
You'll see what I mean when you watch one of her Youtube videos–she has such an uplifting and loving energy about her. Like a magical little fairy from the forest!
This past summer, I began practicing her very easy and simple daily energy routine. I usually do it before bed, although I will warn you that it's better to do this during the day. I can feel my energy really going afterwards which can make it hard to fall asleep.
No matter what time of day you do this though, you will help to clear and rebalance your energies. Even though I know the routine by heart now, I still play her video in the background just because she is so soothing. Since I do my exercises at night, I have a salt lamp on with some healing crystals on my nightstand, and it's a very recentering and calming part of my routine.
If we all meditated, I can't even imagine the implications that would have on this world. Meditation is medicine. It is what connects you to that higher place within yourself. You are calmer, more loving, and more present when you meditate daily.
There are many ways to meditate. I usually meditate in silence, but I've also enjoyed guided meditations as well as binaural beats and meditation music.
The benefits meditation has on your energy, mind, and body are mind boggling. The body and its organs and cells are nourished, the mind is calmed and rewired, your energy field is expanded, and you literally positively affect those around you like ripples in water. Your field vibrating at a higher frequency positively affects their field.
Meditation is connection to the place from where we came. It's our direct line home. You can ask for anything your energy is needing; cleansing, healing, rejuvenating, etc.
3. Creating a fluid body
Keeping your body fluid is something that will not only help your energy to flow better, but will also open up your intuitive abilities.
The simple ways I like to do this are through yoga, stretching, drinking water, and intuitively eating. Any kind of body movement is beneficial for your energy, so whatever kinds of exercise you enjoy most are just fine.
I really love intuitive eating because your body will let you know exactly what it needs and what it doesn't want. Before I eat anything, I just first imagine eating it and I can feel whether that's a good choice for me or not. I prefer this method because I believe with all the diets and "rules" out there, it's overwhelming and also inaccurate since those diets were not made specifically for YOUR body. Let your body tell you what it wants, not anyone else.
Move your body in a way that pleases you, eat food that feels good, and hydrate yourself like you do your favorite plants and flowers. You will feel so good and your energy will be dancing.
A simple yet powerful exercise specifically for your energetic body is as follows. I do this exercise before falling asleep but it can be done at any time.
Laying down or sitting comfortably, I feel a point by my feet and move that feeling up to the top of my head. You'll feel an actual sensation inside of you when you do this because it's your energy body moving energy. It's not imaginary. I then move the energy back down to my feet, then up again.
Sometimes I need to do this slowly a few times but once I can really feel it and get control of it, I start moving it up and down. Doing this for 10-20 minutes creates a very healthy, fluid energy body that is cleansed and vibrant. You will likely feel chakra points pulsing as well as they begin to open and close rapidly.
This is called the VELO technique if you'd like to learn more about it.
4. Releasing emotional & mental baggage
Are you in contact with the deeper parts of yourself? When we become aware and present within ourselves, we can recognize our own self-inflicted drama and pain. Learning how to recognize and release the attachments we create is the ultimate freedom.
A simple way to begin doing this is practicing being present and aware of your surroundings. Really notice your life and be in the moment. Attempt to see people fully and past any stories you've created about them. Journal to discover yourself more deeply, and to release pent up emotions.
I really love and recommend The Work by Byron Katie. Her method of asking yourself 4 simple questions will free you mentally and emotionally.
5. Recommended books for daily energy alignment
I like having a small set of reading material that powerfully helps to reset me and keep me in a place of remembering not to get so caught up in the "realities" of this world. Yes, I am here to experience this world and life, but I don't want to forget that it's also just a "play" and the perceived drama is nothing to lose myself in.
While some books are made for a short daily read, others you can use in the same way by setting a short reading amount, such as a page or two. This makes such a difference for your mindset energy and can set the tone of your day.
I'm recommending the following books specifically because they help to bring you into the present moment, to dispel illusions, and to help clear mental energy that is not supportive to your being:
These are just what I personally read, but I encourage you to read whatever books resonate with you. If there's a book that really shifted your life, add that book to your daily practice and read a page or two a day. There are also lots of daily meditation books out there to choose from.
I hope you've enjoyed reading these energy clearing and balancing tips. My intention is that you take what resonated and leave what didn't. Thank you for reading.
