Hi so I’m back today with a blog post about something that I’ve known about for a long time but never felt so strongly about as right now, so today I am going to write about energy and energy transfers.
So I have been observing myself over the last month as I am now living on my own, as I had a conversation with my auntie before I moved out, that I will do some purging as I’m letting go of other people’s energy. I listened to her and took it in but didn’t know what I would feel until I was actually feeling it and its been so eye opening, that I wanted to share it with you.
What is energy?
What is energy? Okay so when I talk about energy, I’m not talking about the man-made energy we created. I’m talking about the energy that we are all made of, because the reality is that our human bodies are just a costume we are wearing to survive in this world. We are energy and when we die, we leave as energy. so energy is our soul/ spirit/ life force/ Chi/ prana or whatever you call it, and we are lucky enough to connect with other humans because of this energy.
What is energy transfer?
Energy is a beautiful thing and we are blessed to get to experience it, but the downside of that is that we tend to feel everyone else’s energy too because “energy attracts energy” as known with the theory with the law of attraction, and this can be good or bad.
So we all beings of energy that attracts the same energy to connect to, so that’s why we attract people into our lives in relation to where we are emotionally at that point in time. So when we are in other people’s energy, we can “take on” whatever they are feeling or experiencing, and this is most obvious when you leave someone’s company and you will feel either energised and happy or drained and have low mood depending on the other person. The positive of this is that it shows you where you are currently in your life and emotional state, given by the energy you are attracting.
So as I mentioned at the beginning, I have been learning about and watching myself over the last month with how I am reacting to other people and observing where my emotional state has been living on my own. Honestly I have been stunned and amazed by what I have experienced so far and what I have learnt so far about myself.
In the last month I have discovered just how much I really do take on people’s energy, and i didn’t think I was because some people are better at remaining in their own energy and not taking on others too much. I realised a lot of my actions and feelings haven’t been directly mine.
I discovered being on my own that I’m actually pretty unbothered by most things and what used to make me angry or frustrated just wasn’t affecting me anymore. The other thing I have really noticed is that I have more ambition and drive to do what I enjoy, the last few months I was really struggling to do things that I even enjoyed, just because I felt too mentally exhausted to even think about doing those things even if it was just sitting down and writing a blog post, it just felt too tiring or I didn’t have the mental capacity to come up with an idea although the passion and ambition was still there. When I moved out, all of a sudden I was constantly writing new blogs and coming up with new ideas, and the thought of it wasn’t so exhausting.
I have also discovered, that I have been just spending time in silence. This might seem strange but over a month ago I couldn’t have imagined just sitting with myself, I lost touch with meditation or reading because I just couldn’t sit in silence or not have distractions and whenever I would try to just sit, I would just end up thinking of everything else I could be doing or get angry at noise or people’s distractions, but that wasn’t really my problem, my problem was thinking that was my energy to take on, I should have recognised this and found what my interests were in that moment because I did want to meditate or read or else I wouldn’t have thought about it, I was just taking the energy of others and the environment I was in and thinking that was my problem.
Okay that’s all I have to say for this blog, I hope this was interesting as it’s been life changing for me, to start to learn to recognise what is yours emotions and experience or someone else’s.
Thanks and I hope you enjoyed reading, see you in the next blog.
