Channeled Message: Allow yourself to play

The days have been dark and lonely as of late.

But in every struggle, you have the ability to find a lesson or something for which to be grateful.

In this time of chaos and the unknown, allow yourself to play.

The time you now spend inside and limited in your day to day activities is a gift.

This is a time for you to re-discover the child within.

What did you once love to do but have not done in far too long?

Children are beautiful in their innocence and delight. They find wonder and possibility in every little thing.
You can do the same.

Open your eyes to the wonder available to you now.Allow yourself to create and express yourself.Lose yourself in something “meaningless” for a while.

Allow yourself to play.

Energetic Care & Practices

These are some of my selenite pieces 🙂

This post is a follow up to last week’s Energetics Are Everything. I suggest you read that first if you haven’t already 🙂 In this post, I want to dig deeper into energetics by sharing my own energetic beliefs and care, as well as sharing some energetic practices that you may find useful, especially if you’re new to this type of work.

As I mentioned in my blog post last week, I am by no means an expert in energetics. I can only share my current knowledge, beliefs, and practices. Please feel free to take what resonates with you and leave the rest behind.

My daily energetic practices revolve around the auric field and the seven chakras.

The aura is one of the layers of energy that is closest to our physical body. The chakras are energy points in the body, starting at the base of the spine and extending up to the crown of the head, that correlate to certain physical, mental, and emotional attributes. Some people work with the basic seven chakras, others with eleven, and others with 114. For now, as an energetic newb, I work with the seven main chakras.

My physical body and energetic body, particularly my aura, chakras, and connection to source/spirit, are what I personally refer to as my sacred channel. It’s part of my daily routine to practice energetic hygiene and cleanse and recalibrate my sacred channel.

My Energetic Hygiene Practice AKA Cleansing My Sacred Channel

I do this every morning and again in the evening before I go to bed.

Step 1: Cord Cutting – I stand with my feet firmly planted on the ground and then cut energetic cords. I hold my hands up in front of me, palms facing my body, and do karate chop motions all around my body. I pay special attention to the area around my head, ears, throat, and heart. As I’m doing this, I envision that I’m cutting energetic cords that may be connected to me in the moment as a way to release what I no longer need to carry or feel.

Step 2: Grounding & Tapping Into Higher Energy – Once I take care of any active energetic cords or leaks, I focus on grounding myself to the earth while also opening my channel to tap into source, spirit, and my higher energy. First, I envision energetic roots extending from the soles of my feet and down into the center of the earth. Then I envision the four elements–earth, fire, air, water–infusing my roots with their own energy. Next I breathe in deeply as I pull that elemental, earth energy up through my roots and into my body, all the way up to the crown of my head. Then I ask to connect to the universe, source, spirit, and my higher self and picture that connection as golden/white light that fills the crown of my head before flowing down my body and through the roots of my feet.

Step 3: White Light Cleanse – Once I’m grounded and tuned into to source/spirit, it’s time to call on the white, loving light of the universe and source to cleanse and recalibrate my sacred channel. I’ll grab my selenite crystal tower and hold it to the crown of my head, and one of my selenite hearts and hold it to my heart, calling on the white light and breathing it in deep before I picture it washing over my body, cleansing me (and my energy/aura) from head to foot. I’ll do that body cleansing deep breath two more times. Then I take a deep breath and envision absorbing the healing white light through the selenite crystal at my heart and letting it fill every cell and fiber of my being (both physically and energetically). Then I do a deep exhale to release that breath and energy, and my sacred channel is cleansed!

Since this practice is a bit more in depth, I like to bookend my day with it, as I mentioned. However, sometimes throughout the day, I may need to do a quick grounding, cord cutting, or energetic cleanse. You can be flexible with your practices and routines. You don’t need to follow an in-depth routine, step by step, in every moment. Figure out what feels good for you, and once something starts to feel boring or stale, experiment and shake things up until you find a practice that resonates with you.

I’m also a fan of professional energy healing for energetic care and well-being. I like to book a monthly appointment with my energy healer, usually waiting until the day before to feel into the type of session I want to experience. My practitioner does a lot of hands on energy healing that includes working with the divine and angels. Some of my favorite types of energy work include Turaya Touch and reiki.

I can honestly say that learning about energetics and creating daily energetic practices has changed my life. I feel so much more in tune with myself, and it also gives me a sense of empowerment. I think sometimes it’s easy to just go with feeling crappy and spiraling into negativity, scarcity, or whatever the case may be, but you don’t need to be a victim to your circumstance or current way of being. 

You can literally shift your thoughts and experience by simply shifting your energy. 

It’s a total game changer!


Energetics Are Everything

Since the start of my spiritual journey over a decade ago, I’ve always been interested in energetics, but it wasn’t until the past few years that I’ve really started to experiment with energetics and energy work. Although I’m still a newb in this area, I have come to believe this wholeheartedly:

Energetics are everything.

I want to preface the meat of this post with a confession: I had no idea how much there is to learn about the human energy field and energetic anatomy. Not to mention all of the competing information that is out there. In doing research for this post, I fell down a google rabbit hole which made me realize how much more I have to learn about energetics. (And I’m totally okay with that because I’m a nerd for learning 😉

So, I am by no means an expert in energetics, but I can share my own experiences and practices in case you find any of it helpful 🙂 I’m also excited to learn more and expand my knowledge in this area. For me, when there are competing explanations and beliefs, I always feel into what aligns most with my higher energy. What feels right and true for me  on a soul level?

Okay so here’s the gist of energetics…everything is energy, even us. As humans, we have an energetic field that is composed of different layers of energy, and the awareness and maintenance of that energy is just as vital to our well-being as the care we give our physical body.

Our energetic state can deeply affect our human experience.

At any given moment, the state of your energy correlates with how you feel physically, mentally, and emotionally. Are you feeling happy, sad, tired, overwhelmed, resentful? If you’re feeling sad, you may feel physically empty and tired. If your energetics are vibrating high and you’re feeling happy, you may feel light, excited, and free.

When you interact with others – what is the energetic exchange going on there? Maybe you spend time with your best friend, and you come away feeling carefree and replenished. Maybe when you visit your least favorite relative, you come out on the other side feeling negative and physically depleted. In every moment, your energy is affecting how you are feeling and being.

You can literally shift how you feel–physically, mentally, and emotionally–by shifting your energy.

If you’re ready to start experimenting with energetics as part of your spiritual practice and personal well-being, I suggest you start here:

1. Decide on what resonates most with you. What type of energetic bodies or beliefs do you feel most drawn to? When you think of energy work and hygiene, what energy bodies and tools do you want to work with or experiment with? Are there certain types of energetic services or experiences you want to try?

2. Experience your energy. Take some time and space to just sit with yourself and feel into your energy. You can even treat this as a type of meditation. Get grounded and still. Go inward. How do you feel in the moment? Physically? Mentally? Emotionally? Then experiment. Visualize something that you deeply desire and feel into it. What is the underlying energy of that wish or goal? How does it make you feel? Notice how your energetic state has shifted since you first started your practice.

Since this post has turned into a bit of a monster, I’m going to save diving into my own energetic beliefs and practices for next week. I’ll share how I work with energetics, energetic hygiene, the type of professional energetic services I favor, and some of my daily energetic practices.
