To recharge my batteries. I discovered I was an empath in 2019 after a yoga therapy treatment. I wasn't surprised by the news as it made sense that I had this connected ability. It made sense why I was a good nurse and it helped me understand how I was able to sense emotions from other people. Once I was unburdened from my past it heightened my empathic ability.
Hard lesson learned was when you give, give, give. When you put out without receiving, without taking anything in, it depletes your battery. It drains me and runs me down.
I try to remind myself to rest when I'm tired, take a break when I'm in a mental rut, and take time for myself!
Energy isn't something I have, it's something I am. I tell my students this all the time. It's fact, energy is a property that matter has and the same amount of matter has different amounts of energy. This is what makes each one of us unique.
Learning how to self-love, how to control your light, and how to control dark light from consuming you is part of learning how to live. I found what energizes me. Nature, Music, Baths, Yoga, Meditation, Talking to God, Gardening, Crafting, and Stand Up Paddle Boarding.
Have you found what energizes you?...See you on the water!
There's still a lot of people that for some reason or another allow their fears to keep them from fulfilling their purpose or even to try something they've always wanted to do. I'm not talking about small feats. I'm talking about chasing dreams. The stuff we read about in fairy tales that we've convinced ourselves are unattainable because we want to believe that being able to pursue our dreams is for kids. The childish enthusiasm about life that we can do whatever we want as long as we put our mind to it has long been forgotten and thought to be an immature state of mind. I never grew up so to speak. I still believe that not only can I do anything I try, but I can also be good at it. I'm hoping to never grow out of that mentality.
