If my energy field is depleted, I may pull energy from my client’s field. If I’m caught up in emotional issues, it can effect my clients.
Having a morning routine that grounds and balances my energy and emotions, prepares me for working with clients and helps me feel great.
Being an empath, I tend towards spongy energy. I absorb other people’s energies. On an average day, I’m picking up other people’s thoughts and feelings. Whether it’s from clients, family, friends, neighbors or people at the grocery store, it’s imperative that I have a routine to discharge what isn’t mine.
Also, certain foods make me feel fatigued and “not all here”. If I eat protein and vegetables, my energy stays stable. If I eat white flour products without protein, like bread and pasta, I’ll be tired soon after. Eating foods that keep me grounded is necessary.
Currently, this is my morning routine which maximizes my energy and productivity.
1. Wake Up and Be Grateful – Because I’d rather stay in bed, I think of a few things I’m grateful for. This gets my mind focusing and prevents me from falling back to sleep.
It’s a small dose of The Law of Attraction, which sets my mood for the day.
2. Record Dreams – I grab my journal on my nightstand and jot down any dreams, words or dream fragments I remember. Quickly, I associate the dream with anything happening in my life now or consider if it’s about a future event.
Dreams give you a boatload of guidance in your life. Read more in Answers Are Only a Dream Away.
3. Yoga and Meditation – I place my yoga mat on my bedroom floor and stretch out my back and hips. Then, I do 20 minutes of Kundalini Yoga (breathing/movement exercises). This really clears and charges my energy field. At the end, I meditate by focusing on my breath. From 5 to 15 minutes depending on how much time I have.
Movement is crucial. Whether it’s yoga, Tai Chi, or Qi Gong, get your energy moving. Fill up your body and field with clear energy. Clear out stagnant energy, emotional debris and receive earth energy for your physical, emotional and mental health.
4. Breakfast – Usually, I’ll have a green smoothie/juice or eggs with Italian bread or an english muffin , or gluten-free cereal with unsweetened almond milk. No coffee, doughnuts or sweetened cereal for me. Even granola will make me tired.
5. Walk Dogs – During winter, my walk is around 20 minutes. It may be leisurely as our dogs, Ginger and Palla, like to do a lot of sniffing.
Fresh air! Besides feeling invigorated, the morning sun has been scientifically shown to keep off the pounds. Plus, it provides Vitamin D which positively effects your immune system.
6. Shower and Get Dressed – After the shower, I’ll listen to a podcast while I’m getting dressed and putting on makeup. Right now, I’m enjoying Brilliant Business Moms, The Lively Show, Sorta Awesome and Researchers of Truth Virtual Circle Lessons (based on the teachings of Daskalos).
This entire routine takes about 1 hour and 40 minutes. I don’t have to take care of my kids in the morning. They’re in middle school and get themselves ready.
This is the morning routine that’s working for me now. What get’s you out of bed in the morning? How do you maximize your energy for the day?
