What’s Happening With My Energy?

I booted up my laptop this morning to write the weekly blog and this was the randomised screensaver that greeted me from the Google archive. I recognised it immediately. Not just because its geographical location is near where I live and apparently I have ancestors on my maternal grandfather’s side from there, but I recognised it more deeply on a soul level as to what’s happening with my energy right now.

Firstly, in case you are wondering what ungodly pheomenon this might be, it’s actually a beautiful piece of engineering at Ladybower reservoir in Derbyshire, UK. I always used to call it the plughole when I was little, (probably still would today if I’m honest).

Seeing the image on my screen this morning it reminded me of the way our personal energy, if unchecked, can just go down the plughole and into the great abyss, leaving us needing to work ever harder to bring ourselves back into balance through Self-Full focus and care. The truth is though, if we were much more discerning about how we use our resources (whether intellectual, emotional, physical or material) and consciously manage our focus and attention, then this great big monster-of-a-drain wouldn’t even register, because we each possess the means to direct the flow and even plug it if we need to.

So what’s happening with my energy? For me personally, my physical energy is doing fine at present, but I do recognise the signs that I am spreading myself too thin, and across too many different projects/platforms… it doesn’t feel like I’m doing any of them justice at the moment.

My passion and my purpose is to serve and to teach and to make a difference in the lives of those I reach… but it has to be a positive difference. It has to nourish me in return so that I can keep serving. You see, it doesn’t matter how much energy is pouring down the plughole as long as an equal or even greater amount is also pouring in. This is the nature of Principle 7 of the Grail. In order to balance the in and the out, the giving and the receiving, essentially the resourse management, I have had to take my foot off the gas in areas that are not nurturing me too in some way: mind,body or spirit.

Over the coming weeks I have decided that I need to increase my “selective” handling of the different ways in which I serve so that I have more to give and more importantly, the fewer ways I do so can have greater impact.

Now, we know what’s happening with my energy, what I want to know is: does the ‘monstrous devourer of life force’ pictured above, resonate for you in the same way it did for me today… and can you identify in your own life what the power drain might actually be? Perhaps it’s a job, a person, a relationship, a habit or even a thought pattern…. maybe it’s even just the endless bad news on social media?

What action are you going to take to plug the energy drain and reclaim your power? Let me know in the comments below.

First Monday Focus – Just One Thing

Wow! First Monday of the month again. I normally issue a challenge for just such an occasion but to be honest life is currently challenging enough so instead how about we do a First Monday Focus? In this case, focus on just one thing…

In the middle of massive transformation at home, I’ve just received a request for help from someone reaching out on social media who appears to also be dealing with uncertainty at this time and from conversations I’ve had with others too, it’s  seems commonplace at present that people are struggling with overwhelming circumstances compounded by fear, doubt and a crippling inability to make decisions that they trust.

We are in “All or Nothing” mode at the moment, thanks to the recent Full Moon and Venus in Scorpio, and the tendency is to try to change or settle everything at once. When it seems as if everything is in turmoil you could be forgiven for creating even more overwhelming circumstances by attempting to fix every aspect of life in a vain attempt to keep all those lovely balls up in the air in some kind of pointless juggling act. It’s ok for some of them to fall on the floor so you can concentrate on just one important thing…

That thing is going to be personal to each of you, for me its finding somewhere to live. For the lady who reached out to me, it may well be the same, but for some it may revolve around improving health, finding a job etcetera, but when all around you feels uncertain, it’s your basic needs that take precedence over every other decision you need to make.

Improving your situation often requires action, but the focus for today is simply deciding which one thing you intend to take action about. Creating that focus will bring the clarity you are asking for.

Leave all the negative self talk and the coulda shoulda woulda accusations to one side… however this situation occurred, it did so with the sole purpose of propelling you towards greater action, blessings and lessons exist within the core of your circumstances. You have everything you need within you in a wealth of hidden potential and resilience to improve the hand you have been dealt one step at a time. Don’t forget to ask the universe for help too.

Things to remember:

Principle 1: you create your own reality… so get creative!

Principle 2: where you are right now is the only place you can create from so leave the past behind in order to build for the future!

Principle 3: stop beating yourself up,  that is simply wasting energy and resources on a detrimental activity.

Principle 4: nobody else’s opinion is going to give you what you’re looking for, decide what’s important for yourself.

Principle 5: let go of all unnecessary and superfluous clutter to free up some mental, emotional and material resources.

Principle 6: concentrate on basic needs, your safety, health and well-being are your primary assets

Principle 7: accept help where it is offered and offer help where you can… helping others reminds you how useful and powerful you are even when you’ve forgotten how to trust yourself.

Remember that the above Principles are the path to The Wholly Grail but the Grail lives within you not in your illusion of external reality.

Right then, on this happy Monday, I’m wishing you miracles with just one thing (but you get to choose which one…  so choose wisely).

More later… x
