Have you ever had one of those days where you've done NOTHING with your day but feel we tired at the end of the day?
Or the other way round. You've had the best day ever and you feel so energised but you don't know why?
There's a reason for that and it's because energy that doesn't flow, rots.
The other day, I woke up and for some reason had this weight weighing down on me. I felt stagnant, drained and my mind was in overdrive. This was my day off and I wanted to make the most of it, so I grabbed Josh by the hand, put on some Taylor Swift and started dancing. I closed my eyes and just let my body do it's thing
Shake up, shake down, turn around, some back and forth boogies, SONG CHANGE, switch to rock & roll, funky dancing, smooth dancing, moonwalking, hair swivels...
For half and hour we danced from one song to another and finished totally out of breath and smiling. I physically felt the weight lift off my body.
Now the reason I shared this with you isn't so we all get up and start dancing together, (though I would love that!), it's because this applies to so many areas of our life.
When energy flows it ENERGISES, when it's stagnant it rots. Just like the gunky water of a lake vs. the clear water of a rushing river. We are a part of nature. We ARE nature. So it's no surprise that nature mirrors what's true for us.
Every interaction we have with people is an energy exchange. But the difference between that interaction being draining or energising is wether we're in a state of FLOW or not.
👉When our body expresses itself, were in FLOW.
👉When we speak our truth, were in FLOW.
👉When we're helping people from our heart, we're in FLOW.
Being in flow is energising and energised people are MAGNETIC!
With my clients who feel drained, we identify WHERE their energy is stagnant and bring it back into flow again. Even though it's unique to everyone, the most common things it boils down to are these 👇
➡️ Mental Stagnancy:
Confused about WHAT to do and the confusion is draining you.
For this you need clear priorities, simple and distilled information, thought out goal setting and relentless consistent action.
➡️ Emotional Stagnancy:
You know what to but the lack of motivation is draining you.
For this you need to check the clarity around your WHY, remind yourself of it and align with it. Ceck for and heal beliefs that are sobotaging you. Create an energising daily routine.
➡️ Physical Stagnancy:
Your body feels weighed down and it almost feels like it's out of battery (commonly comes with a craving for coffee, nicotine, sugary/fatty foods)
For this your body needs to express itself, in one way or another.
These three are not isolated from each other, but it's helpful to see them in that way for the purpose of understanding!
