Replenishing Your Energy
It's helpful to have a tool for calling our energy back into ourselves. Energy is very fluid, and is constantly being exchanged between people. When we encounter someone who is frustrated, for example, we may end up feeling out of sorts without really understanding why. When we are trying very hard to talk a friend through a difficult time, we may walk away feeling depleted and sad. In this situation the energy transfer may have been in both directions, giving away our vitality and taking on another's sadness.
The Berkeley Psychic Institute teaches a simple way to replenish our energy, called a golden sun. What we think, we create. What we visualize, our bodies perceive as real. We could use any image to represent our life force, but a golden sun is a a great healing. To me, it represents the energy of the Supreme Being within me, which contains all of the truth of who I am.
Begin by visualizing a very large, bright golden sun above your head. Allow that golden sun to begin to collect any of your own energy that you may have left behind or given away. You don't necessarily have to see what's coming back to your golden sun, just allow it to happen. It's important to call our energy back to ourselves because while our energy works for us, it doesn't work for others. For others, it actually gets in the way. When we give our energy away to others in an effort to help them, we are not acknowledging their infinite ability to perfectly create for themselves. In the process we can begin to become uncomfortable, things can feel difficult, or we might lose our clarity and get caught up in things not of our own making.
When you feel ready, allow the golden sun to come down through the top of your head and into your body, filling every organ and bone, every cell in your body with the gold vibration of your own spiritual energy. That's all there is to it!
This is an easy tool to practice, and also easy to forget. But I teach, and write, to remember. So my tool for today is gold suns, lots and lots of them!
May this tool be a blessing. . .
