Look around you and you’ll notice energy everywhere; from the earth to the moon, sun, and stars; from the flowers and trees to the animals and rocks. Even your body, thoughts, and emotions are all composed of energy, basically atoms, which are charged particles and are always in constant motion, vibrating at different frequencies.
We are energy beings. Everything and everyone is interconnected.
Higher vibrations make you feel lighter and happier, while lower vibrations are heavy and dark.
We can change our vibrations by changing your frequency and, thereby, shifting our energy. In order to keep our body, mind, heart, and soul energized and functioning at optimal levels, we need to pay attention to how we provide fuel for ourselves. Whatever you hold onto and repeat on a daily basis is what your energy will naturally attract and become.
As Clint Eastwood says, “What you put into life is what you get out of it.”
Aristotle said , “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.”
When we are running low on energy and are constantly exhausted, we need to look at our energy habits and learn how to refuel in a more energy efficient way so we can feel free, alive and vibrant. It is essential that we commit to self-care in order to create a better sense of wellbeing and to live life to the fullest in balance, peace and harmony.
C – Choice
How you choose to take care of yourself will determine how much energy you have and in which direction you want it to go; either feel energized or feel drained. Choose wisely.
A – Assign
Choose a specific time when you are going to get things done. Prioritize your goals so you can work on your plan, step by step. You won’t waste time or get caught up in distractions.
R – Restrict
Choose to minimize the time spent doing things you don’t like to do. Also spend less time with energy vampires who suck the life out of you. Find ways of dealing with these chores and people by spending less time and being more productive.
E – Eliminate
Choose to get rid of anything toxic which causes major energy loss; food, thoughts, emotions, people, clutter.

“Match the frequency of the reality you want and you cannot help but get that reality. This is not philosophy, it’s physics.” Albert Einstein.
