During the past several weeks I have been reminding myself of what I know about energy. I have had to remember to draw Divine energy into the crown of my head, instead of relying on my personal will power to move me in life. I have had to relearn to focus on grounding, and letting go of old memories as they arise. These are all things I have studied and used in the past decade. Yet, during this long period of stress, I fell back on my childhood responses and allowed myself to run seriously low on energy. It is good to be back in the swing of it all.
In rereading an author I love- Florence Scovel Shinn, I was reminded of her words ” these things don’t move me”, meaning that once you are clear in your convictions, outside events or words do not throw you off course. WOW, I have to say that when I am low on energy, almost anything seems to throw me off. To simply hear those words in my head is to bring a feeling of immediate calm to me.
I am sure that I am not the only one who holds full fledged battles in their head. I can easily give voice to both sides of an issue and whenever I run out of things to say, I simply start over with the inner battle. Now I apply the magic words and a hush descends on my mind. I actually am able to gather myself and remember what I hold true in my heart. That ends the fight, soothes the nerves and just makes me feel much clearer.
I know that Florence would not be using these words to mean that she does not care about someone’s plight. She honestly means, that she holds her perspective of the deepest truth within her and is able to simply hold her place. Florence was writing all this wisdom about abundance and applying the metaphysical laws to everyday life in the early 1900’s, and she is still completely on point. If you need to be taking extremely good care of yourself and you would like to be reminded of how to work with “The Game of Life”( the title of one of her books), I highly recommend this book to you.
