Let’s start the dance!
Life is meant to be fun. However, it is difficult to have fun when you don’t have enough energy to feel the spring in your step? In other words, do you feel energetically drained? Or can’t remember the last time you felt really excited about your career and life? Perhaps it is time to consider a reset and let’s start the dance!
Often when we feel like our life is not giving us what we want or feel that we deserve, chances are that we are blocked on a mental, physical, or emotional level. However, becoming aware is the first step to change.
“Awareness is the greatest agent for change”.Eckhart Tolle
Recently I was working with a client called Jennie. She had gone from being bright and bubbly with a positive mindset to being all doom and gloom. Jennie told me she struggled to see any joy in her life. Feeling like she was going round in circles, with a sense that she was drowning in quicksand.
As Jennie told me her story it was easy to see why she had lost sight of her plans and her confidence had plummeted. Even though she was feeling burnt out and at her wit’s end the positive was that she had reached out and asked for support. Being aware that your life is not working the way you want it to be the first step to reset.
In other words, feelings like this are common to many women who are trying to be “superwomen”. Juggling way too many hats and being a people pleaser. Often saying “it is easier to do the task myself than delegate, I know if I do it myself it will be done properly”.
Does this sound familiar? Can you relate to feeling like this?
If you are serious about creating a better life for yourself then it’s time to step up. Now is the perfect time to open your mind to new ways of thinking and doing. Know that you can create whatever you want. You just need to want to change. Reaching this step is the start of the dance. You have activated your awareness.
During our session, Jennie told me that she eats well and exercises so in her eyes she was doing everything right. She couldn’t understand why her life wasn’t working. This is a common misconception.
As we are always growing, changing, and evolving let’s remember we are energetic beings first. So, it makes sense to explore other tools that we can use to manage our body and mind energy.
The energy centres in our body are known as chakras. Most of us are familiar with the 7 main chakras. These are situated from the base of our spine to the crown of our head. When our chakras are all balanced and working together in harmony life is great and we prosper in all areas of life. However, when these energy areas become out of balance, we can start to manifest issues in our physical and emotional bodies.
The root chakra is our first chakra. Associated with our need to survive. This area affects how we manage our physical bodies, career, and money. All of these components are intrinsically interwoven. When this area becomes out of balance it can create a heavy sensation in that area. Leading us to feel sluggish, exhausted, stuck, and chaotic. Scientific research has found that the chakras relate to immunity, health, mental peace emotions, and happiness.
Consider looking at your health and wellness through a different lens. In essence, using an energy lens will help you start the dance. Reclaiming your power over your body and mind as you explore alternate avenues to energise yourself that compliments your diet, nutrition, and exercise regime.
3 tips to shift your mindset and explore your energy canters more are:
- Create a daily routine and let go of what no longer works for you, this will free up some space for new ways of thinking
- Increase your awareness of your energy, notice what feelings deplete your energy and what feelings or emotions increase your energy.
- Make a list of your current limiting beliefs and then match it with an empowered belief. For example, your limiting belief maybe “I do not deserve to be successful”. Your empowered belief could be “I am open to receive every opportunity for success”. Review your empowered beliefs as often as possible to keep you in a positive mindset.
Jennie left our meeting that day with homework to do around shifting her mindset and committed to practice her daily activities. We met up four weeks later and she advised that her outlook had completely changed. Her dance had begun! It is early days but often it is a simple shift in your energy field that can set you on the road to success and happiness.
