We lose energy by having things incomplete around us. Although we may not notice it clearly, we are drained by these open projects. To experience this drain, think of an area of your home where you walk by and a feeling of "I must clean that up" comes in. These are energy drains for us, as is a book that is unfinished or a pile of things to be put away. These may seem minimal but for your basic animal self, the doer of tasks, will drain your energy with an open cord until it is done.
This is one of the secret energy drains that is continually streaming through us and can exhaust our energy. We all know these spaces about us or within, that nag us in a subtle way. It is powerful for our vibrancy to keep these to a minimum. We can also just call them "complete for now" which supports our energetic being. If a book is unfinished or a task in process, when you put down the book or move the task a bit just say outloud, "this is complete for now". It may seem silly but it is a powerful message to your unconscious. Channels of energy remain open unless we close them. It is the same with memories, situations we are solving and emotional challenges.
This is something we can do each day, each month and I am doing this at the beginning of the year. This way we have more energy and focus for the things we are doing. In most schools of thought, we are exhausted by incompletions. All these little things on many levels add up to losing energy in big ways. It is the perfect time to start your practice of using this phrase to support you in self care. We have experienced the larger feel of this many times when we finally got something done that was weighing on us. In doing, completing, we get all this extra energy. Otherwise, we feel that "ugh" when we think of the project, idea, pile or emotional situation. This "ugh" powerfully lowers our vibration.
Today I made a list of the things that need to be finished. For a new year this is important to clear any lay around things from last year and the holiday rush. Simple stuff like changing my address at the bank, making a doctor appointment, moving my online class to the next step, writing this blog, putting soup in the freezer in small containers I made the other day. I want to paint my office soon and I have books that are calling me that I will pick up and put them down again and call them complete for now. This is such a valuable tool! Try it as you walk around your house and feel the power of calling projects complete for now even if they are in process. It is how our basic self is set up and we can easily work with it to recharge our energy.
Making this a habit, this practice of noticing what is incomplete when you feel tired is a good way to reclaim energy. It is how it works. We don't need to fully understand it other than the mind and body stay open with energy for things that are in process. We can easily reign in the energy, know when it is time it will move and that until then, you need not lose focus or concentration from our world. It is a powerful tool that supports us being in vitality and clarity. Every so often I do the list to see what small drains are plaguing me that I am unaware of. Once I make the list, just that it is on paper, I begin to get this subtle feeling of control and power.
Simple, easy, graceful way to keep yourself energized and flowing. Completions are important self care. When you finished the open lines, it is elating and euphoric pleasurably!
