Have you ever met someone and wanted to immediately take a shower? Did someone speak sweetly, but it felt like daggers being thrown instead? Do you find yourself complaining when in the company of certain people?
Do you pay attention to how you feel around other people? Are you aware if you feel uncomfortable in a crowd? Were you in a great mood and see a friend and all of sudden become sad?
Being aware of other people’s energy can support you in releasing unwanted clutter from your life.
Some Thoughts About Energy
I know that energetic clutter might be a weird concept for people. The example I like to use is if you have ever walked into a room right after people have fought, you can usually feel the tension in the air. Or if you have had a really cluttered room and you clear the clutter you can feel the difference.
Learning to Feel Your Own Energy
If you aren’t very familiar with energy, I would start by becoming more aware of your own energy.
People can feel energy in different ways. I feel energy through the palms of my hands. I start to feel a swirling situation. I also sometimes feel strong sensations in my body (clairsentience). Other ways people can feel energy is through seeing (clairvoyance); hearing (clairaudience); touching also known as psychometry
I recommend sitting quietly with your eyes closed. Take a deep breath. Place your open palms facing each other. Play around by pushing energy back and forth or wiggling your fingers and play around with the energy. Ask to feel an emotion like anger or happiness. Ask to be shown what stuck energy feels like as well as free flowing. Be open, play and have fun!
Once you have a sense of your energy and how to check in, you can have a better sense when there is energy in your field that doesn’t belong to you.
Take an inventory of the people in your life. Start beginning to notice how you feel around different people. At work, notice if your stomach clenches when a co-worker comes to your desk. Do you feel tired or overwhelmed all of a sudden?
Is there someone you dread talking on the phone to or skyping with because you know you will feel drained afterwards?
When you hang out with friends, do you feel happy and energized? When one person comes around does the energy seem to shift and change?
When at the grocery store, how do others energy feel? Can you notice anything?
Letting go of other people’s energy
Once you have a better sense of your energy and others come up with a game plan to release the energetic clutter. Here are some suggestions:
As I like to say, Google is your friend. Talk to people you know. See how they handle other people’s energetic clutter. Make it fun, try things out and see what works for you.
With a game plan and being more aware, you will be less susceptible to energy of others.
- People can feel energy in different ways: sensations in the body; seeing; hearing; smelling; touching; emotions and tasting.
- Begin to play with energy and get to know how your energy feels to you. Place your open palms facing each other. Push energy back and forth or wiggling your fingers and play around with the energy. Ask to feel an emotion and be shown what stuck energy feels like as well as free flowing.
- Once you have a better sense of your energy and others come up with a game plan to release the energetic clutter. This may include: Walking away, using sage, energetically shielding yourself, or being with nature.
How do you feel energy? What energetic clutter can you clear? How can you clear the energetic clutter from your life?
Go out clear the clutter to create the life you choose, deserve and desire!
