Here’s a powerful energy technique to support you as you enter 2017, a year of new beginnings.
As I’ve shared before, we manage our energy by focusing our thoughts and intentions because energy follows thought. This is how I connect with animals anywhere in the world (or in Spirit). I’ve honed my focus so my thoughts and intentions are clear and my energy connects to a specific animal. It’s also possible to use your thoughts and intention to connect to any specific place.
There are places all over the world where the energy is especially powerful. Each of us have experienced times in nature when we felt the energy of the place, even if we weren’t aware at the time that it was energy we were feeling. Think about a place where you have felt connected, peaceful or energized. For some it is the ocean, for others the mountains, a river, a forest, there are so many possibilities as to where you might feel the strongest connection. It’s a personal thing.
Here’s how I found my power place. In 2008, I was in Greece assisting with an animal aromatherapy practitioner course. We were staying in Galaxidi, a small town on the Gulf of Corinth, just a short drive to Delphi. We took a day trip to Delphi during the full moon.
In case you’re not familiar with the Temple of Delphi, in Greek mythology, Delphi was considered the exact center of the world. It was a sacred place for many Gods (Gaia, Zeus, Apollo, Athena and more). For hundreds of years, people traveled to Delphi to learn of their fate by asking questions of the oracle (An oracle is someone who channels messages from the Gods.)
As we got closer to this sacred site, we could feel the energy shift. The energetic vibration made my skin buzz. We were in awe to be in a place of such rich ancient history. As we walked through the ruins, I felt called to sit down on a large stone. Following my intuition, I got quiet and felt into my heart. As soon as my mind was quieted, I heard an angry voice shout through me like molten lava erupting from a volcano. Very clearly, I heard, “I want all my healing powers back. I want them ALL back NOW and I don’t want any complications”. “Geez, I thought, where did that come from”? It was unexpected and yet, I felt a connection to this voice. As if a part of me had been waiting to express these very words. I didn’t hear anything more from the voice but have since felt connected to those ancient energies. Not just the anger, but strength from standing in my truth.
Recently I’d considered taking another trip back to Greece (and maybe taking some students with me…if you’re interested). I was longing to connect with those energies again. And then I was reminded…I can go there now. I can travel energetically. And I did…and continue to do so. It’s very powerful.
Where do you feel connected? Where is your Power Place?
Using the technique I’m sharing, you can replenish your energy when needed.
Simple Steps to Access Your Power Place.
- Sit where you have no distractions, close your eyes and get quiet.
- Bring your awareness into your body and focus on your breathing. Follow the rhythm of your breath for a few minutes.
- Next, bring your attention to your heart center. Imagine you are breathing in and out through your heart.
- Now, remember a time you felt completely loved or grateful. Allow this feeling of love and/or gratitude to fill your entire being. Just hang out in this feeling for several minutes.
In this space of expanded heart energy, imagine yourself standing in your power place.
See this place clearly. Hear it. Smell it. Feel it.
- Imagine you are drawing energy from the earth under your feet up into your body. Allow the energy to fill you until it feels as if the energy has slowed or stopped.
When I do this with Delphi, I often see myself standing in a power stance like Wonder Woman holding a shield. This type of power energy is just what I need right now.
For you, the type of energy might be different. Trust your intuition to show you the place you most need now. Know that the energy you need is there waiting for you. It might be a power energy like mine, or it might be a calm energy, a healing energy, or an invigorating energy. Trust you will receive what you most need.
