Do you notice feeling heavy or constricted when you encounter an angry person or stressful situation? Have you noticed feeling a sense of disappointment or regret after agreeing to plans that didn’t really interest you? Or feeling your energy lift when an idea seems especially interesting? This is your body and your energy reacting to your world and giving you valuable clues that can help you be healthy and well, and to make decisions that line up with the best outcomes. Tuning into this information can guide you in many ways.
A great place to start to access this energy is the Yes or No question. First, close your eyes and say Yes, Yes, Yes, and notice what you feel or see. You may see a symbol, such as a Green Light, or a Sunshine, or something else that feels like a Yes. Then close your eyes and say No, No, No, and notice what you feel or see. You may feel your belly contract, or a slump in your shoulders. Once you have a sense of your Yes and No symbol or feeling, you can start asking questions.
It is important to ask very specific questions. If you are wondering whether a food is right for you, ask “Is this apple beneficial for my body right now?” If you are wondering about a purchase, you might ask “Will this item help bring happiness to my home, or will I enjoy it for many years?” The key is to know what you really want. “Should I buy this?” is not specific enough. A pendulum can be also used to answer these questions. With a little practice and a bit of trust, you start to receive answers to your questions in every area.
The next step is to notice subtle changes in your energy as you move through the world. Are there friends that “drop your energy?” Do you feel sad after going to the grocery store and you don’t know why? Your energy is reacting to people and places and associations all day long. The key is to trust your intuition and your feelings and act on them. Commit to protecting and supporting your highest energy levels. If you are deciding between 2 foods, feel them and see which feels stronger. If you are making plans and you feel your energy drop, take a step back and allow yourself to make a decision that lifts you up. If you have a co-worker that acts nice but feels bad, trust your instincts, and create some distance.
Sometimes a change in mood is an energy issue. Knowing what lifts and drops your energy will help you be empowered to move yourself back to balance on all levels. Tune in and let the wisdom of your energy be your guide.
