One morning while outside in my yard, I was reminded that we can learn from Mother Nature.
I was looking at one of my plants, a banana tree (the non-flowering kind), and talking with a friend about the parts of the plant that were dead.
We reflected on how the energy of the tree was diffused, because the dead parts had not been cut off yet.
It wasn't able to grow and strengthen its core as well as it could have because of this.
The tree was still sending energy to the parts that were dead.
How applicable is that to humans? Completely!
What have you been sending your energy out to?
Are you sending energy to places, people, or things that are dead?
What a waste of time and energy! You will know you are doing this if you feel drained, stuck or tired a lot.
It’s amazing how once we decide to stop giving our energy to these places, people, or things that don’t reciprocate, just how much greater our energy levels can be.
Those “dead parts” that don’t benefit us don’t need to consume our energy anymore.
Your ability to create will benefit from increasing your awareness of the ninth spiritual truth: everything is energy.
Sometimes even after we make the transition, we continue to feed those “old parts” of our past or previous self.
It could be an old story you re-tell to the new people you meet in your life about how you were fired from your favorite job.
We might use self-talk (“I loved that man.”).
With each of these actions, we send our energy in that direction.
(This chapter) will help you to realize how your thoughts and emotions create energy and thus your reality.
You will see that you have the potential to use this energy to create wonderful interactions with yourself and others.
With this new awareness, you increase your ability to build a bright future.
It was one of the first things I noticed after my divorce.
I had more energy because I wasn’t sending it out to the dead parts in our marriage anymore.
I had spent lots of time wondering where my sons’ father was or what he was doing.
It was a waste of my time and energy.
Instead of focusing my energy on him and his whereabouts, I could now focus my energy on a new life, comprised of myself and my kids, pure and simple.
With a new abundance of energy, I could begin to make our new tree (family) take root and establish a strong solid core.
Managing our energy will help us to have even more energy during our transition and assist us in creating our future.
But first I invite you to consider the fact that there are different kinds of energy that influence us.
They are: revitalizing energy, other people’s energy and emotional energy.
