💛Energy Sensitive?💛

Wow, this year has been intense, hasn't it, Beauties?  Especially in terms of collective energy.  While energy isn't something we can see with the naked eye, it's something we can feel.  Energy sensitives often feel the collective energy of a room, a group, or the world, in their own system ~ and this year made many energy-sensitive lovelies realise that, while they want to help take better care of the world, they also need to take better care of themselves.

So why is it so very important to prioritise your self-care, Beauties?

Here's some thoughts... plus some action steps for you:

✨Collective energy can affect your own energy levels and mood.

Those who are very sensitive to the energies and emotions of others need to have a mindful relationship with the daily outpourings of news. It's important to stay informed about what's going on so you can be a change agent... ally... so you cn do your part to make a difference. It's vital to create a balanced relationship with news consumption.

💛Self-care action step:

If your gorgeous beingness is frazzled, drained, or overwhelmed, balance reading about the challenging stories with exposing yourself to stories of hope and connection.  Choose to listen to an inspiring talk... watch a video about a community pulling together. Do something to make a difference ~ whether it's making a donation, reaching out to a friend struggling because of world events, volunteering. This will make you feel more in control and grounded.

✨You can create energy instead of mirroring or absorbing it.

As we sensitive beings pick up so easily on the energy around us, it's important to learn to anchor our own energy, and learn to which they can get better at choosing and monitoring. This will be easier some days than others! In a year when a simple trip to the grocery store can be anxiety-inducing, small things like focusing on the beautiful colours of the organic produce you pick out, or the gratitude you feel for being able to still get healthy food for your family might have created a lovely little energy bubble for yourself while you shopped.

💛Self-care action step:

Learn what affects your energy in a positive way, Beauties. Is it listening to your favorite music? Wearing clothes you love?  Releasing with a specific meditation?  When you're around people who are dealing with challenging emotions and energy, remind yourself that you can create a little energy bubble for yourself that's nourishing. While you cannot choose your emotions... and it's important to honour ALL of them, challenging ones included... you don't have to just absorb everyone else's.

✨Focus is everything.

Where your focus goes, your energy flows. I recently had a client who wanted to get over a past love and was finding it difficult. "Should I try to sever our energy cord or do some other ritual?" While rituals can be powerful, sometimes the most powerful way we disconnect from someone else or a group of people is to take our thoughts elsewhere.

💛Self-care action step:

When you're focusing on something and it's not productive or helpful, only draining, don't fight with your mind.  Gently give it something else to focus on. It could be thoughts regarding a creative project you're excited about, something kind a loved one said to you recently, or a theme from a great movie you watched.

✨Highly sensitive beings require daily grounding rituals!@

For many of us throughout the varying levels of Covid-19 quarantine, daily rituals were a lifeline. It might have been a morning routine of meditation, pulling an inspiring card from an oracle or tarot deck, or my very favourite ~ daily journaling. These mindful moments to centre and ground into your own energy can happen any time of day and often make us feel calmer, more resilient, and more present.

💛Self-care action step:

What daily rituals help you reground and re-centre, Beauties? It might be taking the dogs for a walk around the neighbourhood... listening to an uplifting podcast... a gentle Zoom yoga class... a beauty or skin care routine... reading quietly before bed. These nourishing routines will give you greater energetic stamina to handle whatever's going on in your life or the world.

✨When your energy is scattered, come home to yourself.

Learn to identify signs that your energy is scattered, gorgeous sensitive ~ your thoughts might race / you could have trouble concentrating / you may feel more anxious / you might find yourself being short or curt with people. These are indications that your hyper-perceptive system is overstimulated and needs a break. 

💛Self-care action step:

We really do need what I call "retreat and recover" time on a regular basis. Because our default wiring is to tune into what's around us, we pick up on a lot.  Retreating and recovering involves doing restorative, low-stimulation activities either alone or with others. It might look like having a chill, lazy Saturday hanging around the house with your partner, doing a 1,000-piece puzzle with your child, or getting lost in a solo creative hobby. Plan for retreat and recover time daily and weekly.

Thanks for reading all the way to the end, if I’ve sparked some joy, please consider sharing!
