As an intuitive healer, I focus a lot on energy. My energy, the energy of the things, people, places around me. Everything in the universe is made up of energy. We are all made of energy and it is always changing and shifting. 

How aware are you of your energy? Do you notice the shifts when you are around certain people or when you walk into a store, a building, a room?  

When you are NOT AWARE of the energy around you, you can easily be hijacked – and you will quickly feel uneasy or uncomfortable. It can feel like you are on an emotional roller coaster, moving up and down as the energy around you shifts. 

Some people may find they crave being alone more often, so they can avoid feeling the uncomfortableness of the changing energy around them. However, some people get used to living with the constant shifts in their energy. Either way, it can be exhausting

Wouldn’t it be great if we were taught how to read, clear, protect, maintain, shift our energy – alongside being taught to read and write?  

In the past, I’ve shared how to be aware of, protect and clear your energy. You can read more here 

As you get more comfortable with being aware of, protecting, and clearing your energy – it is freeing. It’s amazing how different life can be when you can connect to your energy and how you are feeling – instead of allowing the energy around you to change the way you feel. 

You realize that you have the power to shift your energy. Then you can consciously choose to fill your energy with more positivity, such as joy, calm, peace, fun, happiness, etc. However – – knowing that there will be situations where you will feel sad, down, annoyed or angry. The difference is that you know the energy, your emotions are yours, not anyone else’s.  

Something that I have worked on is observing how my energy shifts, both positively and negatively when I am around certain people. Knowing there are certain people in my life that are going to negatively impact my energy – I can prepare myself.

Is there someone in your life that negatively shifts your energy? 

Next time you are going to be around them, walk through protecting and clearing your energy (review here). Then consciously fill your energetic space with love, calm, peace, honesty, joy, empathy – any emotion you would like to feel BEFORE you interact with them. 

For example, let’s say you have a close family member, but they have been going through some difficult times and have been in a bad mood and complaining a lot. If you are not aware of how their energy can affect you – it can be easy to take on their mood.  

First, protect and clear your energy. Now you can fill your energetic space with peace, calm, honesty, etc. (Extra tip: you can also imagine wrapping this person in love.) You can listen, have empathy for them, love them, but you do not have to take on their low, negative energy. 

Depending on how much time you spend time with them, it may take some practice, but believe me, it is worth it! Imagine knowing you have the power to shift your energy and how you feel.
