3 Ways to Create New Energy in your Life

We tend to hold onto old energy and past memories for far too long. We protectively keep everything stored within us that acts like a security blanket. The essence of our existence is movement and change, yet we keep ourselves stuck in what once was. This only enhances our anxiety and sustains a lack of progression. Learning to let go and move forward is one of life’s most beautiful, yet hardest lessons. In letting go, we can find a wonderful release, a breath of fresh air, and feel the wind beneath our wings again. Life only keeps moving forward. Rather than latching ourselves onto things out of our control, we can mindfully bring a new energy to the surface. Here are 3 ways to help guide that inspiration within you.

“Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?” - Mary Manin Morrissey

1. Reflect

In order to move forward, sometimes we need to take a step back and think about our next move. Everything that we fervently protect needs acknowledgment, acceptance, and understanding. Once we have reached understanding, we gain a new perspective on it all; through a wiser stance of inner vision and awareness we can seek to make peace with past memories and current fears. Solitude and times of introspection are fertile ground for venturing into self discovery. Having barriers up hinders our ability to learn. It takes time for our heightened levels of wisdom to unfold and for clarity to make its way to us. We find new ground when we drop our defenses on anything that once went wrong or hurt us. We are all innately powerful, we just don’t realize it. Through reflection we begin to pull back that power toward us.

2. Let go of any victim mentalities

Our lives have a natural ebb and flow to them. It is OK to feel a little down, sad, or upset sometimes. We need to feel comfortable with expressing these emotions. The most important thing is to learn from these emotions. Expressing them gives you a chance to really get to know yourself. When we make ourselves the victim, we always lose. When we give our strength away to what does not serve us we always lose. This applies to our thoughts and emotions too. We have the capacity to decide which thoughts and emotions we feed into and fuel. We can recognize our low points and times of frustration, warmly accept them, and then move swiftly on to find a way past them.

“Feeling sorry for ourselves is the most useless waste of energy on the planet. It does absolutely no good. We can't let our circumstances or what others do or don't do control us. We can decide to be happy regardless” - Joyce Meyer

3. Become enthusiastic

Enthusiasm is like life’s natural medicine. It warms your heart, brings a smile to your face, and inspires the new to take fold. Enthusiasm is dynamic and purposeful; wild and wise. What inspires that uplift within you? When we feel the tugs of what makes us feel excited and alive we automatically begin to dance with life again- embracing its flow and essence of continuity and change. When we feel energetically amplified we move to an open minded space and our imagination and creativity is wired up once more. Enthusiasm is a channel toward the magical spark of your inner child where new things and vibrant energy lives within you. When you tap back into your inner child you see life through a different lens, a mosaic of the mysterious: curious and full of possibility.

“Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes shine to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait. The grip of your hand, the irresistible surge of will and energy to execute your ideas” -Henry Ford

New energy ushers in pockets of smiles and waves of new life and love. It is the freshest of air you can breathe in at any given time. Once the lessons of the old are absorbed, we can only let them go, and in doing so, we give space for new things to flourish.
