Do you talk about being exhausted?
I have been exploring my tiredness lately. What I’ve noticed is that I am way more tired when I talk about how tired I am. Through my years I’ve noticed many people talk about being exhausted and tired. It is kind of a bonding experience. I’ve heard people say, “I have no energy, omg me too, I’ve been so exhausted.” The response I’ve had to my own tiredness is to limit my life in different ways so I have energy for my “priorities”. However, what if there is a different possibility?
The #1 reason your Exhausted
Perhaps the #1 reason for exhaustion is limitation. Limitation can be broken down into 3 categories:
- Limited thought
- Limited awareness
- Limited receiving
Henry Ford once said, “Whether you think can or whether you think you can’t, you are right.” It is no secret anymore that our thoughts create our reality. If you are thinking you are limited, you are. If you think you require 10 hours of sleep then you do. If you think you are tired and exhausted, then you are. If you think you need a certain lifestyle to not be tired and don’t follow that lifestyle, you will be tired. Perhaps experiment with a different thought and question: “I am an infinite being. What works for me today?” This brings me to the next limitation, awareness.
Your limited awareness may be keeping you locked in a one way lifestyle. An infinite being is always morphing and changing. Perhaps your lifestyle could be too. When you stay in the box of living one way and you define the cause of every experience, you limit the awareness that is available to you. There are many reasons to feel exhausted: your body may want sleep, you may be feeling another persons tiredness, you may be feeling the struggles on the planet, your body may want more water, your life may be asking you to shift jobs etc. However, when you continuously give the cause to the quality and quantity of sleep you have, instead of asking the universe a question, you limit the awareness you could have. A good question to ask when you are tired is, “What am I aware of?” This brings me to the next limitation.
When you are running your life from awareness instead of conclusions there are a lot more possibilities. However, these possibilities can not be seen unless you are open to receiving. I have heard the explanation that when we sleep our resistance is down. Therefore, we are able to receive energy. Hence sleep is important. But what if you were open to receiving throughout your whole day? Asking questions is a great way to shift conclusive thoughts into possible awareness and it can also be used to increase your ability to receive. A good question to ask could be, “What would it take to increase my capacity to receive today?”
Reiki Helps with Receiving
Another thing that helps with receiving I’ve noticed is Reiki. I usually start my day with a Reiki meditation and use Reiki through out my whole day. When I am creating my day with the Holy Fire Reiki energy my resistance goes down. I find myself open to receiving my intuition, nature, sound and compliments. Receiving money, messages from books I read, clients and love from my family also open up. The list can go on. There is so much energy to receive in one day if we open ourselves to it rather then resist it. Sleeping does not have to be the only time of our day where we receive the energy we require to reboot and reset.
Resistance get in the way of receiving
Where does resistance come from? Resistance comes from limited thoughts, habitual emotional reactions, strong points of view, closed minds, conclusions, competition and other things that create polarity. So when you are awake these parts of you are pretty active, but when you sleep they calm down. What if instead of promising your self you will get more sleep, you put attention to releasing the active polarized parts of yourself? Perhaps, this would open up more receiving during the day and your body would not require as many hours of sleep. It’s a fun experiment I do a lot with myself.
But what if receiving makes me tired?
Many of us are sensitive to the polarized energy around us. Some of us even keep our lives pretty simple and secluded so to prevent ourselves from receiving certain energy. That in itself is polarizing. When your thoughts turn into questions, and your willing to have your awareness and receive its possibility, a different experience is possible. There is no limitation if you are living limitless. Your awareness takes care of you. Then you will be able to feel if you are heading to an area of your day that is heavy, a quality of energy that is not in alignment with your beingness. You will also be able to be around more negative situations with out feeling exhausted or effected.
What if we were able to be the force in the room that brought the frequency higher? Could it be that the resistance of the energy is what makes us exhausted. What if everything around us gave us energy because we didn’t have a point of view about it? Perhaps it is the judgment of the energy that creates the resistance. Let go of the judgment, let go of the resistance. Receive the energy. Feel more rested and vital. Its fun to experiment!
