What is Energy Hygiene and Why is it Important?
Energy hygiene, as the name implies, is the practice of becoming aware of and managing our subtle energies. Just like we take showers to clean our physical body, it is important we take care of and clear our energetic body as well. Although everybody is made up of energy, not everyone is aware of or consciously connected to the energies in and all around us as this is not something that is typically incorporated in our general education. People who are ´´empaths´´ and ´´highly sensitive´´ tend to be like little sponges who pick up energies and emotions form people, places and/or situations. Although these sensibilities can truly a gift and a blessing, it can also become quite overwhelming and tiring if we don´t know how to assess, manage and work with energies.
It is said (and I believe it to be true) that everything is energy... and we therefore are energetic beings... in a physical body. We come from source energy and will some day return to source energy. While alive, I believe we are all doing the best we can with the skills we have. Understanding, respecting and working with energies can help make life smoother, easier, lighter and more enjoyable. There are many ways to assess, increase, decrease, connect with and disconnect from subtle energies. We can learn practical tools, techniques, creative practices and rituals to help us create more equanimity, balance and flow and well being in our lives.
If we don´t clear and take care of our energies... we can easily dim our light and feel we are carrying the weight of the world...
