E - is for ENERGY!!

Often times folks ask me how I maintain such a high level of energy and such a positive attitude.  There is a secret, and I am willing to share it with all who care to know, but it comes with a price.  The price is an open mind.

I believe that there is an unlimited source of energy in the universe and that source is The Divine.  Now, there are as many different names for the Divine as there are believers.  Some call the Divine, God.  Some call It, Goddess. Others may refer to It as, Spirit or Great Spirit, or The Most High, or Creator.  I do not believe the Divine has a gender, male or female, but that It encompasses ALL of us.

The problem with a large majority of our population here on earth is that we have become disconnected from the Divine, and in so doing, we have become disconnected from our main power source, our energy.  I liken it to my laptop.  As long as it is "plugged in" to the electrical outlet and the power is on, it can run all day.  Once I disconnect it from the power source, it will run for a while on battery backup or reserves, but after a while even those become exhausted and eventually my laptop dies.  I believe the same thing happens to us once we disconnect ourselves from God, Spirit, The Divine.

I am of follower of the teachings of Jesus the Christ.  Jesus said, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing."  This comment, is evidence to me, personally, that I am like a branch on the vine of the Divine. I must remain plugged in and connected to the vine or I will wither and die.  I will run out of energy so to speak.

So, how do I stay plugged in to my Divine energy source you may wonder.  I do this by communing daily with my Creator.  Each morning I go out and greet the sunrise, which is a gift from my Creator and a huge source of energy.  I raise my hands to the rising sun and feel the warmth of my God reaching out to me through the warm rays.  The Divine uses nature to "touch" me and give me physical energy.  As I feel the warmth touching my skin, I visualize it expanding through my whole being.  I feel God loving me, individually and completely.  I do the same with the setting sun, the moon, the stars, wind, rain, thunder and lightning.  Everything in natures has energy.



I also look to nature to find God's touch, voice and love throughout my day and I draw energy from it.  For instance, at lunch I go out to the little canal by my work that leads to the Gulf of Mexico.  I stand and look out over the water.  I feel the sunlight on my skin, I breathe in the tang of the crisp, salt air, I watch the waterfowl and the fish play.  I visualize all of this beauty as a gift from God to me.  I draw it in and internalize that Divine love and  I feel the energy rise within me as I feel God's love surround me like a warm hug.



The last part of this energy renewal project is probably the most important part and that is the give back.  When I am given a gift I feel that it is only right that I give back as a show of gratitude and appreciation for the blessing.  The way to keep the circle of energy flowing is to give energy back.  I strive to give as much energy to the people around me as possible.  I know that as long as I stay "plugged in" to my Source, I will never run out so there is no need to hoard the love and energy that God has given me.  I know that as long as I continue to share what has been given to me, God will remain faithful to supply all that I need and then some.  May God bless you with Divine energy today!!

  3. So true!! The spark of the Divine is in all living beings. In order to maintain energy flow, we must receive from the Divine and then pass it on. You have shared this aspect of energy transfer beautifully. :)
