Create a Personal Foundation
Every Sunday the Single, Happy, and Strong Blog will have an exercise for you to do. This is a wonderful way to start a new week; to reflect, grow, and begin a shift in your life. This week for Sensational Sunday we will create a strong personal foundation. We will identify “life’s drainers”.
Have you ever spent time with someone and afterwards you feel tired? Have you ever been to a place and when you left you felt drained? Have you been in group settings and afterwards you felt lethargic? We are all made of energy and we are all connected. What you may have felt, is what I call an “energy vampire”. These are people, groups or places that drain our positive energy both emotionally and spiritually. Do not judge or interpret that these situations or people are bad; they just drain your energy.
Start to become aware of when you are feeling this way. It may be very subtle or it may be very strong. Also, be aware of what part of your body is feeling tired. Mine is usually in the solar plexus area. It is important to create a strong personal foundation and identify your “life drainers”. The exercise below will help you identify people and situations that zap your energy. Sometimes you may be able to take a physical action: limiting you time spent, removing someone from your life, go for a walk. Other times you may be unable to do a physical action. In that case, visualize yourself surrounded with white light as a shield of protection around your entire body and say a prayer for protection. It works, try it. But, first it is important to identify the energy vampires and then decide on an action.
List the people, places, events and tasks that drain you emotionally and spiritually.
Then, decide on proactive steps to stop the “Life Drainers”.
