Plugging the Facebook Drain


Now, don't get me wrong... I do enjoy all the inspirational, thoughtful posts, the adorable animals, and many of the good people I'm connected to via Facebook.

But. BUT!

Whenever I find myself needing to consolidate my energy to do something in my life (including just going through inner transitions that require my energy to be more available), I always feel the pull to deactivate my account. 

Today was one of those days where I answered that call. It's always a tough decision to make, because I do get some very good things from Facebook. But I just needed to pull my energy out of there and back to myself. 

Curiously, just logging out and not logging back on for a while is not enough. I'm still energetically present there if all I do is log out. People can peep me, and I get the energetic 'hit'. And I'm still actively plugged into the Facebook field when my profile is visible, even if no one is hitting my profile directly. 

But I literally and energetically disappear from there when I deactivate! And the slow, silent leak of energy stops. {Bliss.} I get a very noticeable amount of energy back almost immediately and just feel more energetically solid. And it builds into a surplus over time if I stay off for even a few days. A few weeks off can be downright transformational! 

Given the profound difference, it does concern me a bit as to how much Facebook actually drains me on a regular basis. I fantasize sometimes about truly disappearing from there altogether as in killing my account. 

But I balance that concern with the nourishing benefits I feel I get at other times when I do feel I have the energy for it. I have had amazing moments of inspiration, understanding and connection there. 

Still, if you find you're needing some extra juice for something in your world, or you just have the intuitive hit to take a thorough break from Facebook however long or short, I highly recommend deactivating whenever you need it. (Currently, that option is in your Security settings.) 

Do you deactivate occasionally? What have you found when deactivating vs. just logging out? Curious how others have felt the difference, if you've tried it. 

As for me, I'm currently not sharing my energy on the 'Book and feeling goooood!

Clearing Out Negative Energies: Quick & Easy!


Over the years, I've worked with different tools and techniques to eliminate negative, sticky energy out of my field or space. But in the last couple years I've hit on what is for me the simplest, easiest way to energetically take out the trash.

Whether it has collected there because of psychic intrusion, psychic attack, empath-ing things that I didn't get rid of later, or just walking through energy cow pies... it doesn't matter. 

All these many and varied versions of ick collect in our personal field or space (or aura, if you like).

They can drag us down and cause us to feel drained and tired. They can and do affect our emotions and thoughts. 

Some people are more energy sensitive than others and seem affected more profoundly by it. But that doesn't mean they are necessarily conscious of the energy they are being affected by. It's more that they have a sensitivity in their energy system which responds.  

I happen to have one of those sensitive energy systems and bodies. Perhaps it's partly because I'm also an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person) that this shows up this way for me. And there's nothing vainglorious about that "being sensitive to energy" thing either! Every "gift" has two sides... the front of the hand and the back of the hand. And that back of the hand can smack you around sometimes. 

Anyway. 

Turns out, it's just good field management to clean it out periodically. So, I share here my very best and easiest tool for doing just that.

Energy Riptide in the Collective... Are You Drowning?

Are you really tired these days?

Do you feel like you're walking (slogging) through partially hardened concrete?

Feeling super overwhelmed?

Maybe even kind of depressed for no apparent reason?

If so, you are not alone.

This is epidemic right now based on my informal survey of people I know (and people they know). I only just realized that what I'm personally, quietly dealing with isn't all that personal!

EMPATHS: Survive and Thrive!

Like many sensitive people, I tend to be very empathic.  I absorb all sorts of stuff from all sorts of sources.  And, like many people who are empaths, I have typically had no one to mentor me.

Sure, I've had sensitive people around me who were also naturally empathic, but it was mostly the blind leading the blind!  No one really knew how to manage this gift which, sadly, doesn't fit very well in the world at large.

But, deal with it I must, in one way or another.
