When our physical space is cluttered, it’s hard to find the things we really want underneath the layers of stuff that cover it up. Likewise, when we desire to experience life in a higher, better or more peaceful way, it can be difficult if not impossible to find those states beneath the layers of stress, fear, resentment, rage and confusion that get trapped in our energy fields.
Often, especially in the early stage of spiritual awareness (though not limited to this phase), this is our own stuff. It’s fairly easy to tell when this is the case. For the most part, you know what you are upset about. You have your reasons to deal with (more to come on those pesky reasons in the future). However, even when we have taken care of a lot of our own “stuff” and feel pretty good about this whole “being human” thing, it’s important to remember that as a collective we share our energy fields whether we want to or not. In this passive act of sharing, energy from others can become entangled in your field and it in turn can affect your outlook or emotions. This is especially true if you are highly sensitive and/or empathic.
Think of it like this: you step out into the day and your energy feels like the most beautiful song you’ve heard in ages. You are relaxed, at one with things. Then, you stand next to someone at the grocery store that has had a horrible day. Perhaps they hate their job or just got in a fight with their spouse. Maybe they just got word that someone close to them has passed on or they are dealing with some deep trauma. Maybe the store just forgot to stock their favorite cookies AGAIN and they suffer from a severe case of entitlement. Whatever it is…suddenly your beautiful music becomes plagued by an off-tempo drum beat. Or blaring trumpets. Or sad, minor notes humming at a higher volume than your own music’s happy, major chords. And you start to feel out of balance but can’t put your finger on why…
While it’s true that life events, health, hormone cycles, mood disorders, diet, toxins, astrological /archetypal influence, spiritual lessons and any other number of things can be involved in the state of your energy, the key here is to remember that we also subconsciously pick up on each other’s stuff all the time. For an added challenge, ultra-sensitive folks may also deal with the energies of those no longer in human form (among other non-local energies), or those who live at a distance but stay present in the form of energy cords and/or psychic attacks.
Regardless of each person’s level of energetic awareness, we can’t help but blend with each other. The only way to eliminate this is to create a hermitage for yourself on the top of a mountain. As wonderful as this may sound to many of us… the world needs kind, balanced, compassionate energy to stay present to balance and soothe the waves of of pain, anger and fearfulness that are so prevalent on our planet. Because if negative emotion can so easily rub off on you, think of the possibilities when you keep your energy so clear that you walk around like a channel of divine light. And what if millions of others chose the same way of being? You have the potential to become a 24-7 instrument of world healing. How does THAT sound? That’s right, you can play that beautiful, peaceful energy song a bit louder and with more clarity so that it brings balance to that unknown friend of yours in line at the grocery store (and everyone else you come into contact with, for that matter). With humility, awareness and a well-maintained energy field, miracles are possible.
To live with clarified energy, you must first own the fact that yours can create clutter too. It’s the nature of the beast, as they say. Next, learn ways to manage it so that you are not adding and undue amount of cluttered energy of the world. Then, once you know your clarity baseline, you can more easily understand when the energy of others is getting to you and how to clear it so you don’t pass it on. Going even further down the path, it is important to acknowledge that Source does all the clearing and healing that is possible in the world. We are simply its instruments. This not only takes the pressure off, but it also keeps you from getting a big cluttered spiritual ego.
This can process can be swift but it can also take years of inner work. There is no magical short cut to spiritual maturity. But I, for one, enjoy using every tool available to me when I want to transform in a certain direction. Energy clearing, along with practical readings and/or wisdom coaching, is a tool that can aid you in your endeavors to live a more clarified and intuitive life (without having to hide from the world because you feel too sensitive to deal with it).
