I poured myself a cup of tea and noticed a puddle forming under the cup. I lifted the cup and saw water trickling from the bottom. But surprisingly, there was no visible crack in the cup. And yet it was leaking.
I got to thinking that life can be like that sometimes. We can be leaking energy in subtle ways – a little bit here, a little bit there – and not realize it until we are completely drained.
Some possible signs of energy leaks:
- Persistently feeling tired
- Illness/difficulty recovering from illness
What’s draining your energy? It’s different for each of us, but some possible energy drains could be:
- Cluttered surroundings
- Unfinished tasks
- Negative people/toxic relationships
- Negative self-talk
- Dwelling on past failures
- Trying to control what’s beyond our control
We all have energy leaks at some point or another. But the good news is that being aware of them can lead to plugging them up (while ignoring them can lead to dis-ease).
Pay attention to what you think about before you go to bed. What keeps you up at night? What are you obsessing about? Write it down. Then take steps to release what’s not serving you – memories, thoughts, people, and clutter – so you can take back your power and your life.
By releasing those drains, you’ll increase your energy, clarity and overall personal effectiveness – which will lead to a much happier life.
If it’s no longer working for you, you have the power to make changes – if you choose to. Get support if you need it. Don’t wait for the cracks to be visible before plugging up your energy drains.
