Heartbreak. Betrayal. Depression. Failure. Negativity. Low-Self Esteem. Loneliness. These are the very things that have been clouding my soul for over a year, a lot of energy and time exhausted. I write this blog in hopes to share something more personal with you all although it is not very comfortable because I am very reserved with my personal life, I know someone out there needs to hear it because who ever you are, you are not alone. In a world where social media tends to mask the hurt and daily struggles we have as human souls, I am using this blog to share the truth but also to open minds to alternatives to strive and become in tune with our souls.
Over the past year, even today, I have been on a roller coaster ride with myself and the universe, many changes and challenges but most of all the most humbling process I have ever experienced so far. I knew the universe was speaking to me to move away from the very things I felt attached to because there was more to see and I needed to grow. After deciding to move away from my “safe” comfortable space, the universe has been kicking my butt since but as the universe was moving me, I continued to carry so much baggage, self-doubt, sadness, depression, hurt and betrayal, only slowing me down along the way. One thing I have learned through this time is how to find my energy for my soul.
I want to share with you how I learned to find the energy for my SOUL.
Define YOUR energy source
I could say I get my energy from caffeine (yes, I may be addicted to coffee but that’s another blog) but the energy I speak of is energy for your soul. What does this look like for you? Maybe it means an intense workout, dancing, observing nature, praying, meditating, music or anything that positively refills your soul. What ever that looks like, this is your first step. Being able to define this energy will increase the health of your soul and ultimately keep you balance in life.
Recognize when your energy is LOW
There will be times when you feel overwhelmed, drained and tired and this could be your body signaling to you that your internal energy is low. This is your body calling out to you and demanding that you need a dose or two of energy for your soul. If this is you, stop the excuses and just do it! Sign up for that Zumba class, take out paper and write that poem, listen to that music, just do it! Low energy will only continue to damage you and lead you to a Malfunctioning Soul.
Practice energizing your Soul
Learning how to energize your soul takes time and practice. Every day will not be the same, you may forget or try different things that do not provide the right energy. This is completely okay- you never know until you try. Some people soon learn that maybe working out every day does not suit them for their soul’s energy, it may give them physical energy and of course it is a healthy habit but to energize the soul is a different feeling.
