Here are some of my favorite energy boosting go-to’s!
🗝️ Epsom Salt Baths: Just a couple of spoonfuls of Epsom salt, dissolved in a warm bath great for clearing and recharging the energy field.
Preferably, soak for at least 30 minutes by candlelight. I personally, would take the time to say a thoughtful “intentional blessing” over the water before you get in. I would also bring some drinking water to have on hand as well, I would bless that too! Direct your palms toward the water and say, “Divine Presence, thank you for filling this water with vibrations of healing, purification, and love.”
Don’t forget to cleanse and soak your “Physic chakra”, cleansing the area below the base of your head.
🗝️ Green Juice: Our heart chakra is a vital power center. As an Empath it’s even more vital! Consuming foods and juices densely packed with chlorophyll, like green veggies and green veggie juice actually brings this vibration into our field and recharges the heart with precisely the energy it needs. NUTRIENTS for the WIN!!
🗝️ DeClutter: Nothing bogs an Empath down like clutter and material overwhelm. If we declutter our home environment “Sacred Space” and work spaces, we will feel immediately lighter and more energized. How can we expect our genius to flow when our gutters are full of gunk?!
🗝️ Essential Oils: There are Essential oils that are specifically intended for energy!! If its citrus, spicy, minty, coniferous or herbal it should do the job! Tangerine is probably my favorite!!
🗝️ Move that body: “The more blood flow the better”!!
Moving our body frequently throughout the day keeps the energy with us from becoming stagnant. In the past I always preferred a physical job, I love the adrenaline and the cognitive function moving continuously provided and I rarely ever get tired. I worked a desk job once and I was literally doing squats and lunges every 5 minutes to just to stay awake.
Now that I work for myself and I set my own pace, I have noticed that I naturally don’t sit often. The most important thing is simply conscious awareness of our mind, body and spirits needs. Nothing is black and white, we live in the color. Listen to what your body is asking of you and you can never go wrong.
QUICK TIP: If you sit all day, make sure you are aware of you posture,
just a small adjustment can make a significant difference in your energy.
Remember to pull your shoulders back.
🗝️ Express Yourself: Nothing helps you release emotions and the things that are weighing you down like expressing them. The method you use is entirely up to you; writing, painting, drawing, dance, music and good ole fashion conversation. Personally I would actually combine two or more methods, you really want to let that “thing” go!! Dancing and painting are my two favorites!
🗝️ Crystals to balance your Chakras: Depending on how sensitive to energy you are, you may have noticed that crystals are like little energy batteries.
Carrying, wearing, or sleeping near a crystal can help restore and recalibrate your energy field.
Especially when you choose a crystal that feels particularly healing and balancing to you. I keep amethyst and rose quartz next to my bed and a moonstone around my neck, in my pocket and on both of my hands!! Remember balancing your chakras is like balancing your hormones, nothing but great things comes from that!! Just ask my husband!
🗝️ Get Outdoors: While every single human on the planet benefits immensely from spending time outdoors, but it’s extremely necessity for empaths. Absolutely nothing works precisely like nature does, when it comes to instantly balancing and recharging us.
A lack sunlight will absolutely affect your energy levels, so get plenty of sunshine, a minimum of 20 minutes a day is recommended.
🗝️ Personal time: We absolutely MUST have regular doses of alone time. We have to make time to decompress, reflect and re-energize. Being alone gives us the opportunity to develop
self awareness and understand what our own energy truly feels like.
🗝️ Fresh Flowers: We know that flowers do great things for our spirit, but I recommend you be intentional with this one. Specifically choose flowers that you feel drawn to, flowers that light you up! They will give you an instant burst of energetic refreshing. Flowers actually work on an emotional level to repair and reboot. Which flowers make you smile?
🗝️ Regulating our Sleep Cycle: We all know that sleep is imperative to a healthy, happy and energized body but did you know that the times we sleep are even more important?! Our bodies go through a detoxification and healing process while we sleep, known as the sleep cycle. If we wake up in the middle of this cycle than we will find ourselves not in alignment with our best most energized self. The important thing is to not be abruptly woken in the middle or before a cycle is complete.
Remember we are mother nature, the pace in which she thrives is slow, effortless and graceful… is your life attuned to the pace in which we were created? or are you allowing the pace of society to dictate how you function?
