You are an energetic being living in an energetic Universe. You have the Source Energy that creates worlds flowing through you. It is your responsibility to be vigilant and guard your energy. It is especially important to use your sacred energy wisely. As you cleanse and raise your energy, you release negative emotions. You feel the power of your Source Energy, Breath of Life, pulsing within you. You align with your true Self and your inner power.

Cleanse and raise your energy with your good-feeling thoughts.

Your every thought vibrates and attracts similar thoughts. You are either raising or lowering your energy with them. Be aware of your negative inner voice. Don’t express negative energy when you talk. Don’t trash your energy with strong, negative emotions. You increase your stress with thoughts that make you feel bad. Instead choose good-feeling thoughts or at least thoughts that make you feel better. With consistent mental practice you can change your ways of thinking and feeling.

Repetitive thoughts and feelings impact your life experience. They create the self you are becoming. You can transform your feelings with your thoughts. You have the freedom to choose your own thoughts. You limit yourself. You are more than you think you are. Cleansing your energy comes from a place of honoring the Divine within you.

Cleanse and raise your energy through your breath work.

The link between breath, life and the divine appears in both Eastern and Western spiritual texts. For millennia yogis have used breathing practices to calm the mind and emotions. Your breath is a powerful ally. The daily practice of breath work is a simple yet effective way to enhance health and well-being. Think of your breathing practice as a pause button in a busy life.

Studies show that breath work has immediate and long-term positive effects on your well-being. It can be done sitting at a traffic light or in a quiet room. Breathe in a long, slow and comfortable manner. Relax into each exhale. As you inhale, you breathe in oxygen and the Source Energy, Breath of Life. As you exhale, you release carbon dioxide and negative emotion. You raise your energy level. Breathing slowly with awareness renews body, mind and spirit. It increases clarity, vitality and well-being.

Cleanse and raise your energy during time spent in nature.

The natural world is alive with energy. Spending time in nature helps keep your energy fresh. Observing nature helps you align with the essence of your being. You deepen your experience of the Divine. You feel a sense of expansion beyond the ordinary self.

A walk in nature has a powerful energetic effect on your state of being. This energy affects your mood, your immune system and the self you are becoming. It flows into the core of your being. Modern science shows these changes happen in real time. Nature’s energy cleanses and raises your energy.

As an energetic being, you must guard your energy and use it wisely. You must choose ways to cleanse and raise your energy. Meditation may be the best life practice. Studies show that meditation promotes inner peace, lowers blood pressure and boosts the immune system. It restores the body, calms the mind and empowers the spirit.

Explore the gentle, ancient practice of meditation. It creates a quiet space in which to know your true Self and reclaim your inner power. It offers a way of tapping the divine energies of love and wisdom. Meditation transforms your life. It helps you live with joy, vitality and well-being.
