Each human being brings to their life a certain type of energy. It’s called your vibrational frequency, aura, or life force. When we come into contact with people in our lives, our energies are transferred to one another. We can either be in sync or we can be pulled in opposing directions. There are those people in our lives that fuel our energy – those to whom we feel drawn, excited to be around, connected with on a deeper level. There are also those people that slowly drain our energy by bringing us down, taking us for granted, or devaluing who we are. Essentially, the people we allow into our lives can either fill up our wellness tank or drain it.
This past week, I made the conscious decision to let go of someone in my life. I realized, and continue to realize, that energy from this person has been toxic to my wellbeing for some time now. Oftentimes, we confuse the brief moments of gratification with long-term sustainence. How many of you still associate with a friend that used to be supportive but who now brings your mood down each time you talk? Are you subjecting yourself to spending time with a family member who is constantly critical toward you or life? Are you still in a relationship with someone that is no longer fulfilling and depleting the essense of who you are? Why do we hold on?
We hold on for three reasons that came to my mind: familiarity, obligation, and/or comfort. As I have said in previous posts, it is so much easier to deny yourself the truth. It’s easier to hold onto something or someone tightly, pretend that the circumstances have not changed, and go through life with a depleted energy reserve.
Your life is special. Your life is unique. It is yours to live with authenticity and value. You choose who you invite into your world. Do those who you invite support you and lift your spirit? Do they fuel your energy? Letting go of the people in your life that no longer serve your best interest can be difficult. After all, at one time they may have held some purpose and meaning. You may have connected with them, because they had something to teach you. Perhaps, you have taken heed to the lesson and now the energy has shifted. It doesn’t mean you stop caring. It doesn’t mean you love any less. But it does mean that you value yourself and your wellbeing. It means you are true to your heart and conscientious of where you put your time and energy. I am still learning this, along with you.
Deepali’s Piece of Wellness: As you think about the vibrational frequencies that surround you this week, think about what sort of energy you exude to those around you. Are you tuning into a frequency you wish to emit? Think about the people, things, or ideas you may need to let go in order to create a clearer picture for your life.
