Finding our Balance..

Life%20LightWhen was it that you felt your natural state of being as vibrant, and happy to be alive?

Recently I had to take myself off for a very long walk, to draw upon Mother Nature to put that Zing back into my step..

I still had a few Crystals which I had cleansed at theLittle Grandmother gathering in Wales last month that I wanted to give back to Mother Earth, and I found myself upon the wonderful river bank in Lathkill Dale in the National Derbyshire Peak District. And I sent a prayer to our Mother Earth, giving her thanks for all her wonderful bounties and sent her some healing thoughts.. I threw the crystal in the river near to a weir, and watched it plop and settle upon the clear gravel bed and it glistened in the sunlight under the fast flowing water… And I felt like I too had been healed and cleansed as the water washed over it..

I was amazed at how glum I had been feeling and run down and worn out. This does not mean that we are lazy or unfit for the tasks in our lives; it means that we need to recharge our batteries from time to time, and find a way of keeping them charged. I needed to recharge the way I was thinking, I recently left my last employment of almost7yrs, I now find myself in limbo awaiting my new employment start date for several weeks now and I couldn’t help but feel sad for those I had left behind. And I hadn’t realised just how down I had been feeling..

While Vitamins and extra rest can be very helpful in restoring our physical bodies, if we delve deeper, we may discover that there is an underlying cause for our exhaustion.
Whenever you are feeling run down, take an honest look at how you have been thinking, feeling and acting. You will likely find a belief, behaviour pattern or even a relationship that is out of alignment with who you really are.

Perhaps you believe you have to be perfect at everything or you have been bending over backwards to get people to like you or serving other peoples needs. Maybe you are dealing with mild depression or simply have too much on your plate right now. There may also be people or situations in your life which are draining your energy. Once you get clear on the root cause, you can weed it out and better direct your flow of energy in the future.

That is what I needed to do.. Weed out my thoughts, so as I sat upon the river bank I said thank you for all those precious gifts we all at times take so much for granted.. and I looked into my feelings and why I had had felt so down.

I usually try to be a very positive person, but it is so easy to fall into that negative trap and let it crowd in and clutter your thoughts with obstacles.. Instead I have turned them around to embrace the Changes before me.. For Change is so often what we resist, because we are unsure of the future which brings its own fear factor… But if we don’t allow the Changes to flow, we become static and stale, and we do not grow and progress.

Life is about experience.. And at last my head is in gear… Maybe it’s the Sun of the Spring Days we now are in, that we breath in the Air our Mother Earth gives for Free…But I’m reminded how she gives us every breath.. in her Breath-taking World of beauty..And how very much we need her.. And we need to honour and respect Nature and all living creatures..

We have lost our way in so many things here in this materialistic world where many put possessions and profit before people..We have for the most part Forgotten who we are and have long forgotten how to embrace the Joy of Living..
So for any of you who might notice that the reasons you feel run down have less to do with how much you are doing and more to do with the fact of what is in your heart, you may try doing something else entirely. Even if it’s just taking yourself out into nature for a while..

Why not try and listen to what your heart really wants. It may take meditation, or just a moment of silent thought, tuning in to gain the clarity you need, but it is well worth the effort. When you know what you truly want to do, and honour that in all situations, you will find that getting run down is a thing of the past, when we truly look at Life in a new perspective and allow our energy to balance once again.

      Thank you Jen, yes we all too often become Like a Magnet and absorb those negative energies around us which act to drag down our energy. Our Bodies are made up of energy and we all vibrate within our own frequencies. Once we can alter our way of ‘Being’ our thoughts, for our thoughts are also energy which go out into the ether.. The old saying what goes around comes around is very true. For we are the creators of our own thoughts and as we think so we create… So if we are thinking negative thoughts we can also create within us that lower vibration, that frequency which acts as a drain, like a negative charge making us feel depressed, and as ‘Like attracts Like’ which crowds in on us making us feel ‘Low’… where as positive energy, thoughts of a lighter brighter frequency creates within us that feeling of being High.. and ultimately that Happy go lucky feeling..
      Happy Easter too! 🙂

    Dreamwalker my dear, I read this wonderful post
    and I Feel That Every Word Is True. Often
    our energies are drained.
    The universal energy must circulate forever, because
    when we become selfish, we are spinning
    in the same level, without any headway.
    When we give something for the persons, the universe recognizes us again as a channel for energy flow.
    The beautiful things of life does not depend on the money: walking barefoot through the grass, look at the full moon, feeling the sun on our face…
    Wish you a happy Easter my beautiful friend,
    love always…Jussara

    I’d be feeling the same way at saying goodbye, people grow on us and so would the job… I’ve been there before when I became unwell and had to resign from my job, I missed my regular patience’s so much…. But it all becomes to much, with so much change. You need to go and have some walks and bath in the beauty of nature and your batteries will recharge again. You have a new beginning to look forward to, letting go of something you loved is never going to be easy….
    Good Luck…

    It took me a very long time to finally follow the heart, but the balance is not complete yet. It’s so well said here Dreamwalker: Life is about experience…I also found myself in your words – “wanting to be perfect in everything”…an impossible thing…to serve everyone and at the end all you’ve ever done seems just wrong…
    Oh I’m babbeling too much now I guess… 🙂
    Great post Sue

      Yes Eclipse, you have said that ” to serve everyone and at the end all you’ve ever done seems wrong” Maybe we are too harsh upon ourselves Eclipse… For we do want this world and all who are in it to be Happy.. But I have come to realise long ago that the Balance is also experiencing the Rain in our lives also.. We have to remember without the Rain the precious Earth will not flourish, but wither and die.. So too in our lives we have to experience the rain.. But after every great Storm and as the rain dries like our tears, the Sun shines and there if we would but look up into the sky, into our hearts there is a beautiful Rainbow.. with promise of all things beautiful to come.. Much love sent your way dear friend .. Dreamwalker —- And Eclipse you never Babble lol… 🙂

    Yes a very good posting this one my friend, it is true that if one tries to maintain a healthy mind, always focusing on the positive aspects of life that one’s feelings can be lifted. I like your blog as it gives us all food for thought, and remember as one page of a book turns there is always a new and even richer experience waiting to be discovered, I don’t mean riches as in wealth, just in experiences… Be very well Sue Dreamwalker and enjoy the nature and the fresh air around you, there are many more new and exciting times to come my friend, and all you have to do, is be there…

        Yes lots of that Sun is on its way,
        of course there is always a risk of
        thunderstorms too, but let us hope
        that the Sun stays out and the rain
        is in the night time… My foot is a
        bit better thank you, hopefully by
        the end of easter it should be really
        improving… Have a lovely day and
        weekend, enjoy your Easter Eggs
        and a nice chocolate Bunnt too…

    Hello! This is perfect… perfectly in line with myself at the moment.
    I’m tired, run down, sighing.
    I know it’s partly because I’m too busy – so I’ve made a point of it to say no lately. Until I can catch my breath.
    Thank you for posting it….. I needed to read this today.
    I’ve been faced with a huge choice and being still is the only way I’ll get an answer.
    Have a most wonderful day!

    Balance is so important in life.
    I have many changes going on right now which is causing difficulty concentrating.
    Life can do that to us sometimes.
    Taking a break with nature is a very good way to do that.
    It energises us

      Yes Richard, it certainly does that, although from watching all your videos, and the energy and time you put in to make them, I often wonder how you fit everything into your busy life.. I will be around to watch episode 10 over Easter its on my list of to-dos. lol.. Make sure you recharge those batteries too.. 🙂

    I find my best comfort and inspiration in Nature, but there are times when I use a cyrstal to help me on my path. We do get bombarded with negative energies and many interferences. I like this blog my friend. We must listen to our heart, it guides us…with the intuitive sense of love of ourself. A light to our higher sense of being.
