Stagnant Energy // Let’s Talk About It

During the month of May, along with a good bit of the end of April and beginning of June, I encountered a pretty weird personal, emotional + energetic shift that lead to the learning of an eye opening lesson that I’m sharing with you here today. I was ‘stuck’ in this stagnancy. Welcome to a new series: Let’s Talk About It. This installment covers Stagnant Energy. {Hint: it’s toxic}

Perhaps that is something you already know, or you could have easily guessed it. I invite you to read about how I got ‘stuck’ in this energetic state (or lack thereof), and how you can avoid getting into that sticky situation yourself.

I fell out of habit of blogging, working truly (that’s never a good thing to do to your own finances). This last month I fell into a super weird funk. I was uninspired (something that is so NOT me) and uninterested. In an attempt to come out of this ‘blah’ vibrational energy I wrote a piece called Alignment + Integrity, which never went out because you could feel the ‘blah’ in reading it. Another lesson there, for another time. I will rewrite that piece in the future to bring new vibrancy to it, because the message is important.

In my small but more serious recent attempts to climb out of this dark energy — a very aggravating and boring energy to be in lets be honest — I had a good honest aha moment. “What you focus on is what manifests.” Negativity breeds negativity, stagnant energy breeds stagnant energy. And even further, I would venture to say things like depression are closely associated with stagnant energy.

When we aren’t in a place of soul fulfillment through doing, creating, etc. we can get into a really dark headspace. When we are more fulfilled, busy doing the things we love (subsequently happier), we do not experience nearly as much darkness, lack of inspiration or interest.

I didn’t feel like doing my work because my energy was off, and I knew at my core intuitively that I needed to not listen to that ‘blah’ energy, but I did. Repeatedly, until it drove me crazy and I could not take it any longer, because I knew it was unnecessary from the beginning. Like many I am sure, I do not fair well in this dark headspace. I can’t handle it for very long — so I deal with it. I face that issue that is responsible for the dark energy head first and get it over with.

We know we get into these places to learn a lesson of ours, but when we can we can be smart and prevent majority of that heavy energy. How do we do that? How does one prevent getting into a stagnant space?

Move. Create movement. Movement of energy is crucial.

Choose motion. Choose to create, to do, to experience, to push through that morning you didn’t want to get up and do your work, to do your work — let it inspire you. Keep moving energy, as hard and fast or slow as steady as you need to – just keep moving energy.

At times we will need to go through the ‘blah’ to learn our lessons, gain our wisdom, and so on. Please always trust the process. Do not kick yourself for coming to that part of your path where you have to go through some shit so you can grow to be wiser. I kept kicking myself through this experience for not moving out of that vibration (or lack thereof) that I was in, and I assure you it kept me there longer.

Deal with what you are facing, do not ignore it. We need to honor the space when a lesson presents itself. Trust in the process, always.
