I talk a lot about rewiring your emotional circuit board. Electricity is the perfect metaphor for energy. We take it from a source, use it to ignite something.
It is important that the source we take it from is being replenished and that we are also igniting ourselves.
Otherwise we are just wires for other people’s light switch and I am here to tell you that you are so much more than that.
The outside is only a reflection of what is going on inside. We are programmed to believe that we can get what we need if other people love us enough, if only they would accept us as we really are?
Have you said that?
The thing is that no one knows how amazing you are except you. In fact, before the hydrangea blooms, it doesn’t whisper to the daisies, I’m only flowering if you tell me I’m good enough. The daisies are likely to withhold their praise, not that the hydrangea is not gorgeous but it isn’t a daisy so the daisies are likely just to not recognise it. So they will likely give it a strange look like, why are you even doubting yourself? Get on with it, it will be winter soon and you were actually planted, we just grow where we can.
When you see me sitting on the lawn, I’m generally earwigging on daisies.
When we rewire this and allow the approval to come from our own heart centre, our own confidence to come from our own solar plexus, our sexuality from our sacrum, we own it. It is ours. It isn’t right or wrong, good or bad, it just is. That’s where the power and beauty lies.
It’s coming from the source, from us. It is powering the emotional body from its centre, where the power should be.
Constantly seeking approval or asking permission causes havoc in the body. All the energy is flowing out into the ether to be lost, or worse used to plug into and amplify someone else’s energy body.
We are our own electricity, we need to plug ourselves into us. Our hearts don’t beat and feel just to make other people feel good, they beat for us, so we can make clear decisions, love and keep us alive. This means that when we love, it is limitless, it never runs out. We are plugging ourselves back into ourselves so it doesn’t run out.
Meditation is a form of rewiring from the centre which is why I love to use chakra meditations with clients, to rewire the circuitry back to self love.
I had a client recently who finished working with me and started drawing more. Why? That was what plugging into herself meant. For another it was dance, another to build up a relationship with a part of himself that was really hurting and needed the wires changing back from shame to love.
When we know why we withhold love from ourselves, and forgive and release, we can be kinder and give more fuel to the fire that burns inside us.
Now who would you be if you wired yourself back into you?
