GROUNDED GUIDANCE: WASTED ENERGY

Here is an interesting fact—did you know that your mind dictates the way you perceive the world? So if your mind and emotions are neither mature nor evolved, then you will act and see things in superficial, immature ways. How do you know if you’re evolving? Easy—your way of life will be one of love, service and mindfulness. You will be conscious of how your choices affect others in your day-to-day dealings.

Sometimes we get so stuck in an emotional rut that it seems to take only one thing to throw us over the edge. Maybe we get caught up in road rage and take our frustration out on drivers—cursing and saying unpleasant things to them, despite the fact that they cannot clearly hear you or respond in defense. It’s like a sick little pleasure, if you ask me.

Often times, it seems like these outbursts are the only way to release those pent-up emotions, unless you’re a sex addict or have found some other way to clear all that energy. Here’s the thing—that energy you are wasting would be so valuable to your life if it were channeled in a clear way and focused into more advantageous projects. So how much energy do you waste? If you have all this extra energy and spend most of your time as a road warrior-sh*t starter just because you run out of fun and interesting ways to feel life, it’s like you drain your tank of all that is positive. Conserve, people!

You would be surprised if I showed you how you can use your energy for what I call “rollover life force.” Notice the next time you get mad or angry. Stop and take a moment to breathe into it. You will sense something lurking behind the mask of bullsh*t—it’s boredom and fear of having to make yourself feel alive. Something inside you is dying so much that you feel you must become the new judge, highway patrol officer or plain old authority on life. Obviously, that is all crap and a huge waste of energy.

Guess what? It’s time for you to get involved in life more. Yup, that’s right—you are becoming stale and boring. You’re using all your extra energy to trash talk, complain and bitch about the person who cut you off. Instead, get out there and live life. Make a list of 10 things you never have done before and get moving. It’s kind of like a bucket list, the only difference is you’re not dropping dead after you’re done. The best part is, you will never be done.

Life is a journey with loads of adventure around every single corner. Learn to open up to new challenges, take risks and try something new. Choose any of the 10 things and make a plan to do it. If you have that much energy, why not direct it into things that take you higher in evolution? Pay careful attention to where your flow of life force is going. Anger is really sadness in disguise, and if you dig a little deeper, you will see you are not being challenged and what you’re truly angry about is the fact that you’re bored to death. Change it—jump up and do something different. Live a little. Be extraordinary. Love you! Follow me on twitter @shamandurek for more insights.
