My last essay had to do with how important it is to recharge our batteries, so that we don’t run out of energy. This week I’d like to expand a little on that, to bring up the topic of energy levels.
I don’t know about you, but I find sources of positive inspiration vital to my everyday outlook. After a hard day at work, coming through the door and seeing a beautiful painting or smelling a wonderful fragrance can do wonders as a pick-me-up. It’s a good idea to find places around the home that can become sources of positive energy, perhaps like a certain phrase hanging on the wall that brings about a smile to your face and to others. In my case, music can create a wonderful form of atmosphere to relax and inspire. We all need times of relaxation and stimulation.
Because of the level of negative energy we are combatted with every day it’s important that we supply ourselves with at least an equal amount of uplifting sources. I sometimes look at people as little cars, meaning, what kind of gas do we fill our tanks with? What kind of mileage can we expect from the gasoline that we choose? Yes I know some people are going to say, “is she crazy…cars?” But I use the metaphor because, as with a car, you get out what you put in!!
The spirit, too, needs positive affirmation. It’s not a bad idea to keep a Bible and or other forms of spiritual reading material around the house. Yes I believe the soul too can be depleted and need a re-fill.
So the next time you look around your home think about ways to make it a more uplifting environment for you and/or your family….and at work, a flower on your desk, or a special photograph can do wonders for that certain time of the day when you feel depressed or hassled. People do react to the messages you send out daily. Like a pebble thrown in a pond we create concentric circles that affect others, and eventually ourselves too.
Take the time to enjoy,
