"The greatest gift I learned from the Himalayan Masters that came to my farm was an understanding of my energy field. We have an egg shape field about us that is considered our energy field. Honestly, it was some odd mental idea to me. We did practices where they would say feel how do you feel now" and then ask again after the practice and it was like a light bulb. I understood this "auric egg" idea completely through experience. I noticed when I felt powerful and big different from when I felt weak and constricted. We are doing this without awareness anyway.
After learning this, I became an Aharaj Yoga Teacher because it was such a powerful experience. Aharaj Yoga is a marial art, considered Spiritual Aikidoo or the Yoga of empowerment. It is a practice to clear your energy field of stress through movement, thinking and emotions. It also supports you to feel energy and that is why it was so important to me. I share it in my Tai Chi Health classes for it is a valuable tool. It makes the whole world more magical for it is all about energy.
Everything around you is energy. All the items, the people, the nature outside, it all is energy. We learn that the things we are around, we intermingle with, we play and work with, all have a vibe. When we are near them, we are mixing our energy with them. So if you are happy and you go around someone sad, after a bit you too start to feel sad or less happy. It is the law of energy that if you are unaware, all medians out. High and low bring each other to an average.
Why is this important in self Care? We have power to get ourselves in good emotions and feelings. Once we do, it is best if we pay attention to what supports that and what drains it. You may of done nothing physical but sit at a computer all day yet you feel so tired. It is because the electronics drained you. If you got up and went outside every hour or two, you would not to be so tired for nature feeds you positive energy to combat the technology. How do you feel so tired if you didn't move much all day? It is a matter of energy management.
Other times people can drain you. You can feel all delighted and run into a negative nelly. Trying to work with them or deal with them can sap all your happy mood. Other people you find are a delight to be around for they are high energy and you feel motivated and inspired when with them. This is watching how things effect you and your energy level. We only have so much so we conserve and find ways to be around things that create high energy rather than hang in low energy.
In our homes, it is important to decorate and have things around you that when you look at them you feel good energy. We all have areas that are messes, or a corner we throw things and when we look at it we feel, "ugh". It drains our energy. It is best to clear up those spaces or everyday, whether you notice or not, that area sucks your energy. Keep inspiring things about you so when you look around any of your spaces, they give you a jolt of happy or peace.
You simply are in charge of this. You can have high energy all day by inspiring yourself with things that are high vibe in thoughts, actions, emotions. Certainly life gives you some challenge, but when you understand energy you can reset pretty quick by knowing what things give you a boost. It could be meditation, prayer, a inspiring quote, a step outside, a walk, a visit with a loved one, a good delicious meal, a candy bar. There are so many things that in a moments notice can brighten our mood. Essential oils, music is powerful to make you happy or even sad, movement is great and even deep breathes do the trick.
Once I had the experience and understood how I felt viscerally when I felt good, I could play with things and watch how they effect me. It takes a bit of an observation role. It is easy to cultivate and in playing with self care, I have really noticed how things lift me. It is all about energy management. I was blessed to learn this and I teach others how to use this, their emotions, their thinking, their environments and other people and ideas to have more energy. It is like magic and you can feel good most of the day when you are aware.
This is a key tool to self care. If I am going to wake up and start my day bright, do things to get me up, going and inspired, this is a choice and takes work in this world. I will be damned if some unaware driver or piece of equipment or mean check out person is going to take it away from me. I guard my brightness with lioness power! It takes work to be sparkly and uplifted and I will not let anything drain it if I can help it!!
