One of the most powerful things we have is our energy. It defines the way we live, both naturally and spiritually, and it allows us to speak without speaking.
But what happens when our energy undergoes a deficit? What happens when we are so disconnected from our spiritual compass that we don’t have enough power to recalibrate? I’ll tell you…emptiness. For so long, the lights were out on my side of town. I had lost my voice and quite frankly, my desire to come back here; the result of investing my energy where it didn’t belong.
After much prayer, meditation and self realization, I found myself on a journey towards inner healing because I realized the black hole I was in was effecting how I loved myself, or the lack thereof to be completely honest. While on this journey, God revealed to me that the way we love ourselves is the benchmark for how we love others. If we are not intentional about nurturing ourselves and budgeting our energy, there is no way for Him to use us!
Now that I have eliminated relationships and situations that were costing me unwarranted energy, I have taken back my power! I am experiencing a heightened sense of freedom because I am no longer bound by the unforgiveness that was lingering in my heart and causing me to leak energy. I am so grateful for the lonely season of my life because I learned that creating security measures for our energy helps us avoid neglecting our destiny, which requires all of us…
When I began writing years ago, I made a vow to transparency in hopes that my shared experiences would be a light and reference to others. I pray that this post resonates with you and delivers a much needed message to your spirit but most importantly, your heart.
Remember, everyone benefits when you love yourself. K?
