How often have you read headlines about bringing more balance into your life? Do you have any idea how to do this? Is this imbalance physical, mental, energetic, or something else?
Bringing More Balance into Your Life
Most of us acknowledge the wisdom of the statement above. It’s been a real problem for me that was accentuated when I began to raise my spiritual awareness. Although it seemed innocuous, raising my awareness created an energetic imbalance for me.
Determining Energy Imbalance
My study of the System of Reiki identifies two opposing energies that affect all types of balance: earth energy and heaven energy.
Too much earth energy may result in feeling stuck.
Imagine yourself dreading another day at your desk job. All your friends are tired of hearing you whine. The more you complain about your situation, the more stuck you feel. However, during your afternoon coffee break, you hear someone excitedly talking about the change in their life after they start journaling. So you begin to write the following day and slowly discover you have options in life.
Too much heaven energy may result in feeling scattered or unable to make decisions.
Now imagine yourself preparing to walk out your door on the way to run errands. Unfortunately, your house key isn’t in your pocket or purse as you start closing the door. Walking back inside, you feel dizzy and filled with apprehension. Two possible ways to react; race around looking in every room for the keys or calmly stop, taking slow deep breaths before retracing your steps the last time you used the house key.
Some Ways to Bring More Balance
Grounding is associated with balancing earth energy, while developing spiritual awareness is linked to heaven energy. I’ve written articles about grounding with my favorite method of walking in nature.
In addition to journaling, meditation connects us to heaven energy. There are many ways to meditate, including:
- Spiritual prayer
- The System of Reiki
Positive Side Effects
Since I’ve improved my life balance, I’ve noticed:
- An inner calmness
- Feeling more accomplished
- Elevated gratitude
Was there Resistance? Definitely
For me, resistance often shows up as slipping into old unhealthy habits. My favorite form of resistance is eating in a harmful way, both in my food choice and amount.
In the past, overeating brought on harsh self-criticism. Next, I either resorted to a restricted diet, sank deeper into a pattern of overeating, or both.
Now, feeling more balanced, I started improving my food choices and amounts. Finally, I experienced the wonder of intuitive eating. Self-love has replaced self-criticism.
By bringing more balance into your life, you can naturally slip into healthier ways of living.
