Detox your energy this spring

Spring is a traditional time to go on a detox diet, which can help you to shed any leftover winter energy that, literally, weighs you down.

Why not take it a step further, and get to the core of where many of those toxins come from in the first place? Hint: it’s all energy!

When you give yourself an energy detox, you also detox physically. Everything begins with energy, and you are made of energy, body and spirit. Taking on energies that are toxic for you, such as stress, invalidation, anxiety, pain – will create an imbalance inside of you. This affects your body’s health, not to mention your overall sense of happiness and wellness, as well as your ability to create.

Each of us needs energy in order to live, be healthy, and create our lives to be how we want them to be.

If you find yourself feeling ‘full’ after being around particularly stressful people or situations, and if the energy you’ve taken on feels toxic to you, it’s not your own energy. This is like eating a meal that disagrees with you; rather than create a pleasant sense of well being within you, it may cause indigestion. If you’ve taken on energy that doesn’t agree with you, it’s not your energy to begin with. You can’t use it to create with, because it’s not yours. What’s more, it can get in the way of you enjoying the truth of your own energy.

It benefits you to become aware of which energies are yours, and which are not. This is consciousness.

Your own energy is the very best energy you could possibly run yourself on. You’d never fill an expensive sports car with the wrong grade of fuel, one that’s too heavy for the car. It wouldn’t run well, if at all. But you may have tried to run your body on energies that make it, and you, feel sluggish, tired, unhappy, invalidated, or in pain. None of those energies I just mentioned are your true vibration, by the way. If you’ve been giving your energy away all of your life, or taking on denser energies that aren’t you, you may begin to feel like there is something wrong with your energy.

Many people believe that losing their energy as they get older is a natural part of aging. They expect to have the same physical ailments that their parents did, and point to genetics as being predetermined and a given. Meanwhile, they have forgotten what it feels like to run on their own energy. They may be running on a toxic blend of stress-pain-invalidation, backed up by pain killers to dull the roar within.

It doesn’t have to be this way! You can quickly and very easily begin to heal yourself deeply, by taking care of your energy in a more conscious way.

Here are some suggestions for your Spring Energy Detox:

1. Rest, especially if you never do. Listen to your body and give it enough sleep, as well as quality time off.

2. Forgive. Let go of those toxic grudges, that sickening anger, or any exhausting energies you’ve held onto while also holding onto how someone hurt or wronged you.

3. Learn to ground yourself and begin to release energies you’ve taken on that are not you.

4. Meditate daily. Turn off your phone and other distractions, give yourself some quiet time and space so that you can go within and begin getting to better know the most important person in your life – you.

5. Say nice things to yourself and to your body. If you’ve had a tape loop of negative self criticism running through you, get rid of it.

6. Listen to your intuition. Follow it, and validate yourself when your intuition is right.

7. Get rid of mean people. Why waste energy on abusive, negative, and punishing people? If you do this, others around you will also find the courage to do the same thing. When negativity no longer has an audience, it goes away.

8. Let go of what you can’t solve. Just drop it. If you’ve been unable to solve a problem, it may not be yours to begin with.

9. Stop being responsible for everyone else, except for yourself. If you are busily running around saving the world, but forgot about you, you may be avoiding doing your own work.

10. Be in present time. Everything happens now, and now is the only time you can change, choose, create, and be in your body. It’s a miracle to be in the present time!

Which pictures do you invest your energy in?

How do you see yourself?

Did you know that you put your energy into the pictures you create of yourself and what it’s possible for you to have?

Where you put your energy is where you are, as a being. Where you put your energy is where you create.

So which of your creations would you rather see become real: the happy positive pictures, or the unhappy negative ones?

Don’t go pulling the ‘reality’ card out of your hat. Reality is also what you create. Again, where you put your energy is where you are, as a being. This is where you create. If your energy is in a picture of something you really do want, you’re more likely to get it than if your energy is caught in a victim picture, or helpless picture, or something else that doesn’t quite do you justice.

We all choose pictures to live and work by. Beginning from the time you were very small, you adopted pictures as your own, or created new ones. You might have admired the way the cheerleaders looked on the sidelines at a game, and perhaps you created a picture of yourself as one of them. You could see yourself doing what they were doing. Perhaps you were inspired by the way a rock guitarist played his or her guitar, and you created a picture of yourself someday doing the same.

It takes work to make your pictures real. If you see yourself as a musician, it also takes you showing up every day as the musician, practicing, studying, and so on. By investing your energy into this picture, you make it possible to create it. The pictures that you create for yourself determine what you can achieve in your life.

It also takes energy to create a picture that it’s not possible to have what you want.

For example, if you were given a picture as a child that you were clumsy, and you adopted this picture as being the truth, then you invested your energy into it, giving it more power as you grew up. If you saw yourself as clumsy, you might have limited what you could do or have, choosing to instead believe that you were too clumsy to dance, or be a cheerleader, or play baseball. By seeing yourself as clumsy, you may have become so as a result.

Then again, what if you decided to overcome the clumsy picture, pull your energy out of it, and instead invest your energy in a different picture? Perhaps one in which you could be seen in a more attractive light, a kinder light? If you saw yourself as becoming graceful, and being capable of becoming more sure footed, you might have worked to become this. by doing so, you gave yourself permission to become graceful. It began with your picture.

Do your pictures of your life include you being in a happy relationship, doing work that you love and which fulfills you? Even if your present reality doesn’t match to the picture of what you’d like to have, it helps to begin with a picture of what it is you want. This is where you want to be very honest with yourself about what you do want, and don’t want. It also helps to get the local Eyeores out of your way.

To create what it is you want takes a vision, faith, trust, and work. Honesty is also a requirement. You might have to move the old past time pictures you have of yourself out of your way first. Get into present time with who you are, what you want and need. Then go for it. Create those new pictures. Let nobody else throw a ‘can’t’ or ‘impossible’ at your pictures. These are yours, and nothing, really, is impossible if you are working from your own truth.

What does color mean to a clairvoyant?

Clairvoyance is the ability to see energy clearly. The energy might look like color, pictures, symbols, and so on.

There isn’t really one particular meaning for each color, though certain energies may show up frequently as certain colors. A skilled clairvoyant can tell if the color they are seeing in your space is your energy, or something that isn’t you.

You may have quite a lot of energy vibrations in your space at one time, and many of them may not, in fact, be you. The vibrations that are you will work easily inside of you, while those that aren’t can create distress, effort, and discomfort in your space. (Your space is defined as your body and aura.)

Here is a list of colors in order of their vibration in the energy spectrum, from lowest to highest, and what they can represent or mean. Remember that this is an individual thing as well. Each person’s unique energy will show up as colors true to that person, and the colors may change as the person does. You probably won’t be at the same colors your entire life, but may be partial to one or several. Chances are, if you like a color and feel it emotionally, it’s also one of yours.

Brown ~ Earthy, grounded, lower vibration. Brown is often associated with the earth and earth energy. It can be a healing vibration to match to when your body doesn’t feel real.

Red ~ Fiery, anger, movement, passion. If red is one of your favorite or frequent colors, it may have to do with the level of passion you have for life. Red is also a lower vibration, closer to the earth. Some earthy energies are reddish. Red that isn’t yours can be someone else’s anger or other energy.

Orange ~ A brilliant fun happy color. Depending on its tone, it can be earthy, creative, vibrant, joyful, conscious, healing. Orange that isn’t your energy and is in your space can make you feel crowded and overwhelmed.

Yellow ~ Sunny, happy, brilliant, effortless. Your own energy at yellow can feel bright and happy. Other higher loud yellows that are in your space can feel sharp and uncomfortable.

Green ~ Growth, healing, change, movement, peaceful. When you are running a lot of green energy, it looks like you’re in the middle of big changes and growth. Green is also a big healing color. If you’re carrying green that isn’t yours, you may be being responsible for other people’s growth and changes, which can become very uncomfortable in your space.

Blue ~ Certainty, clarity, calm, peace. When you’re working with a lot of blue, it can be healing for you too. Having certainty about who you are and what you want to do, can also sometimes be seen as blue, though any color in the rainbow could be the same. Muddy blue isn’t yours.

Purple ~ As a vibration, purple is inspirational, spiritual, and also one of the highest vibrations in the rainbow. It can have to do with creativity, consciousness, high levels of growth. However, if you feel like you’re floating, you may want to move from purple down to brown or another lower vibration, in order to reground yourself to the earth and into your body.

Gold ~ This is the highest color vibration you can work with in the body. As a vibration, gold clears resistance, pain, stuck energies. It is a karma free color to work with, also protective. Gold is also the energy of forgiveness.

White ~ A higher vibration, white will take you out of the body. It can show up in your space as unconscious energy. Your own true vibration isn’t ever at white, but you can be at white or work with white, often without knowing you are doing so. Contrary to popular belief, surrounding yourself with white light doesn’t protect you. It takes you out of your body, and that isn’t protective for you or your body. Try color instead, especially gold.

Silver ~ Higher than white, silver is also not your true vibration. Silver in your space, as an energy, can be uncomfortable for you and make it difficult for your own energy to be in your space. If you find silver in your space, send it to the earth and try color.

Grey ~ Is a dull unconscious energy in your space, never your own vibration. It can create a muffled unconsciousness that makes it difficult to see or think clearly, and is harsh for your body.

Black ~ Black energy is generally pain, punishment, or some other dark uncomfortable energy that is in the way of yours. Black energy can also show up with depression. Sometimes white unconscious energy covers the black. None of this is your own truth, though it is true that you can sometimes handle it in your space. Let it go, and use happy colors instead.

Meditation gives you the energy you need for creativity

If you’ve been running around trying to take care of many details at once, you already know how difficult it can be to get clear within yourself about what’s next. Finding even 10 minutes a day to sit and meditate can seem impossible on those days that seem to run you.

For many people, the idea of fitting one more thing into their already too busy day, is overwhelming. ‘I don’t have time to meditate’, and ‘it’s just one more thing I have to do’ are some of the excuses people have for not sitting still and just being  with themselves. There is such demand on us all to be constantly producing, doing, working, and creating.

It can get to the point where all of that activity is running you, instead of you running it. This is when it becomes more about what you are Doing, and less about who you are Being. Your value is in danger of being defined by how much you are getting done. Stillness is seen as doing nothing, as in wasting time. There’s that time thing again!

All of this busyness gets in the way of your creativity. Being over extended can actually make it more difficult for you to create. Creativity doesn’t come out of a non-stop work ethic mentality. It requires having enough space and time for yourself, so that you can have the energy you need to invent the new.

We are evolving from one way of being, to another. For generations now the attitude has been that one must work very hard for long hours, in order to prove oneself and be a real adult. We’ve even begun doing this to children – in the last couple of generations children have also become over scheduled, over booked, and very busy, with constant stimulus. Is it any wonder that so many kids have attention deficit disorders? They aren’t being given a positive example of what it means to have enough space and time, to just be.

A great reason to make your own energy a priority is that by doing so, you teach everyone else around you that to you, it is. Once you do this, others will have to line up to your new boundaries, like it or not. Many will respect you for it, others will be in resistance. That isn’t your problem, it’s theirs.

You cannot expect to keep pulling rabbits out of your hat if you forget that you have magic to begin with. Meditation is a powerful tool to help you remember your own magic, that which resides deep within you, in your spirit.
