I have over the last few days just gone with the flow of my inner guide to follow what I have been inspired to do. This has taken me out on walks, weeding in the allotments and experimenting with recipes from produce from our wonderful abundance of crops this year, to having cleaning sprees, along with creative days.
Most of us were born and raised in cultures that value the head over the heart and, as a result, we place our own hearts below our heads in a sort of inner hierarchy of which we may not be always be conscious of doing. Which means we often tend to listen to our heads rather than our hearts. The Ego of logic is ingrained within us as we try to live in order as we structure our daily activities and lives.. Often we allow ourselves to become stressed and that’s when we allow imbalance to creep in which can then result in our feeling ill.
This last week I had some welcome time off work, so I made no plans but each day just went with the flow of feeling. When we listen from our hearts then our logical brain tends to listen, and as it softens it helps us to perceive how interconnected we all are…As I walked about our local town, it made me see how separate we have become,and yet how we are ALL One.. Each person so busy rushing here and there as I wondered upon their busy schedules and lives.. I caught conversations of peoples stressed lives as they exchanged views on Energy bills reach record highs as job prospects plummet ever lower.. Shops increasingly becoming vacant, and a once thriving town near empty as those Big Boy Super Markets on the outskirts of town provided all under one roof.
The cities we reside in have souls. Our cities evolve, create,consume, and breathe much in the same way Mother Nature does….. And yet the town felt empty, as if its heart had gone out of it… The once full square of market stalls was now diminished to just a handful of faithful stall holders. Walking among the town I absorbed its peoples energy and I had to shake off that feeling of oppression as the negativity seemed to weigh me down attaching itself around my aura as I had also been subject to its weight via my day job..Showing me how we pick up Energy from others.. No wonder as we watch those daily news bulletins how we all soon succumb to the negative vibration as Fear is spread via its wave-length.
So out in Nature I had to go as I shook off the energy I had unintentionally collected around me.
If where you live presently feels oppressive or robs you of your energy, consider nurturing yourself more. To cope with the stress of working and playing in an environment you have an aversion to, first ask yourself how the city or your job makes you feel. Then take steps to cleanse your home, your work spaces, and your life of the energy that is dragging you down. For me I needed Space to ground myself back in nature, I needed to be outside connected to Mother Earth. So I walked and worked with the soil. So if your home needs that uplift why not try smudging your personal and professional spaces with sage or sweetgrass to dispel negativity.
I tend to wear various crystals most of the time.. I wear what I am intuitively drawn too, This last week has been Amethyst, Kyanite and Tourmaline Click the links to find out their healing properties or go to my Crystal and Things Page on the top header..
I am lucky in that I have one necklet piece which contains all three. If you do not have jewellery why not put a tumbled stone in your pocket or keep near your person. That way you can ensure that there is always positive, loving energy nearby that you can draw from when you feel affected by environment and you can do your part to promote widespread good energy by sending love and white light from your heart out into your neighbourhood each day.
Thank you for all of your own wonderful Energies which you have given in commenting upon my posts..
Coming up shortly I hope to post more upon the recipes I have done and on the awards recently given me…. Stay well and Live from your Hearts as the times to follow them is here…
