Do you find yourself holding on to past limiting beliefs and behaviors? Perhaps you have memories of being in debt and this is holding back the energy flow for money to come to you.
Do you find that you are holding on to a past hurt in a relationship and this is blocking you from meeting a wonderful new partner, or if it is with your current partner, could it be the block causing the two of you from getting closer? Whatever you are holding fears about will only hold you back from the gift of receiving something new, something better. Release the old and allow the new to come in.
If you find yourself in a funk or worrying, doubting, brooding (some of the things under the fear umbrella) do your best to shift out of this energy immediately. Staying in this space will not serve you or anyone else. Being in this place is only punishing you and those close to you. To shift out of the energy, do something! I suggest first writing out what you are feeling. If you’re holding on to a past hurt, maybe write a letter of forgiveness (this letter is for your healing, you don’t have to send it) and then move on, and I mean literally move.
Take a walk, go for a run, dance, do some jumping jacks, do ten sun salutations, whatever you love to do, do it. Sitting with the funk can a lot of times make you feel worse. Only you can allow the past to have a hold on you. Only you can allow the past to affect your now and your future.
Are you familiar with Louise Hay and her book, You Can Heal Your Life, Louise offers powerful guidance and helpful affirmations such as, “the point of power is always in the present moment.” These are encouraging words. Your thoughts right now are creating your life experiences, so use that power to your advantage. The past is over and while we cannot change the past, we can change our attitude about it. If we brood over a past hurt, for instance, we are only hurting ourselves more. We are in a sense punishing ourselves now for something in the past, allowing it to ruin our present joy.
Now, it may be hard to get moving and you may need to call on that inner-strength to help you, but once you do, you will probably find that you’re happy you did. You can shift that stagnate energy immediately. Even if you’re feeling exhausted, you could just do some stretches on the floor. Qi gong, similar to tai chi, is a big favorite of mine. Anything to get that stagnant energy flowing. But keep in mind that taking a brisk walk will not only shift the mental state you are in, it may also give you a burst of energy (much better than a cup of coffee). Just allow yourself the opportunity to shift through stagnate energy. Give yourself this gift.
There are shortcuts to happiness, and dancing is one of them.
