I am reminded of this one often. I get home from a day of seeing clients or a full day of teaching and I suddenly feel like I have nothing left. It wasn’t until yesterday when a colleague of mine mentioned that they too sometimes feel like they have nothing left to give when they get home. That’s when I finally understood what was going on. There are two things going on.
- I’m not protecting my energy as I normally would and
- When I realise I realise I’ve given my energy away, I’m not calling it back.
Protecting Your Energy
First and foremost, it’s about knowing when to say no. Knowing when your body needs a rest can actually negate this a lot of the time.
I’ve also been using a little energy protection which is simple and effective. All I do is place my palm over my belly button. If you think about the belly button, it was source of nourishment and energy when you were in the womb. It is believed to be a source of Chi or life force energy so by placing your palm over the belly button, you’re protecting your energy. It’s the area in which your solar plexus is close to which is all about personal power and survival so when you’re placing your palm over your belly button, you’re almost activating your sense of personal power, or activating a shield of protection. I like this one because it’s easy to do without needing to visualise anything and no need to ensure you’ve got some “you time” to do it in.
This is of course, just one of many energetic protection processes you can do. I’ll be posting more processes over the coming months, so watch this pace.
Calling Your Energy Back
I wrote an article on this very topic a while back – you can read it here: Calling Your Energy Back.
Your energy is yours to do with as you wish however, if you give it all away, then you have nothing left to give to yourself or anyone else. So be wise about how you give your energy and be wise about calling it back when you’ve over invested.
Protect your energy and know when to call it back.
