Get Your Glow On: Live into the Extraordinary
By Dr. Judy Scher
What’s the difference between someone who is just managing their life and someone who is living an extraordinary life? If you are managing, then you are harnessing and accessing only enough energy to just get by, to do what it takes to survive, keeping your body, your health, and your entire life, in a state of status quo.
In our culture, this survival mode, this less resourceful energy state, is the accepted norm. Even very aware, conscious and progressive individuals can be caught up in this acceptance of a lower energy state. These individuals may have an inkling that something is missing, or that there is a different way to live and to be, but they may not know “how to get there.” For many it requires a physical, emotional, or situational crisis to bring about a shift in awareness that makes the link between energy states and quality of life.
However, there are examples of extraordinary living out there in the world. You may notice these individuals when they walk into a room or pass you by at an event or a restaurant. You might not understand why the person draws your attention, but you may notice that you feel different, even in their temporary presence. These people exude a combined air of vitality, passion, contentment, ease, joy -- a quiet aliveness. These sorts of people don’t purposefully draw attention to themselves because they don’t need or desire to (unless it’s for a specific reason). They move with a certainty of being and lightness. These individuals have a glow that seems to either come from within them or around them.
In fact, whether you consciously recognize them or not, your own energy will be impacted by their presence. The reason for this response is that these people are exporting energy out into the “field” (the matrix of energy that surrounds us). Physics even has a name for this, its called quantum entanglement, where we impact each other through our energy fields. The field is very much alive with energy and allows information to be exchanged within it. We call this energy ‘unbound energy’ (as opposed to bound energy – that which is kept stored or locked up in the body, often because of a trauma).
Sometimes this experience gives you the feeling of elation and empowers you. At other times, being in the presence of this energy makes your ego feel uncomfortable because the experience seemingly emphasizes what you lack. The ego’s job, and the job of the culture, is to keep your sense of self the same, to help you maintain the status quo. Growth and maintaining the status quo are in opposition —you can’t do both at the same time. Whether your experience of such an encounter is positive or negative, either way, energy is being exchanged that, if you are prepared, you can use for your own healing and growth.
If your encounter with one of these extraordinarily living people feels compelling to you, then you may be at a crossroads in your life. You’re being called to step up into more of your own magnificence, your inner authority, and to move from simply managing your life day-by-day to living into the extraordinary.
But how do you get there? What these people living extraordinarily have in common is that there is active participation between them and the unbound energy in the universe (the energy of the field). This unbound energy is all around us, all the time, and it is unlimited.
Where are you living in this field of energy? You are either living in such a way that you ‘export’ energy into the field, contributing to others and the larger world, or you need to ‘import’ energy from the field, take from it, because you only have enough energy to maintain the status quo. It is natural to have times when you do one or the other, but it is important to notice where you are living the majority of the time. Changing your focus to access this unlimited energy is something that can happen in an instant if you are aware of how to engage with it. When there is enough energy, life moves effortlessly and can shift from maintaining a status quo life to growth and extraordinary living. This can be learned and practiced until you are able to export energy into the field, become a contributor, and get your glow on.
So start practicing! Here are seven ways to Access Unbound Energy:
Focus on what you want to create in your life instead of what you don’t want. For example, instead of focusing on how much weight you want to lose, focus instead on how healthy you need to be to hike a mountain effortlessly, or to enter a marathon. Focusing on where you want to be rather than on where you don’t want to be gives you energy.
Limit your interactions with people who drain you, are emotionally needy or try to control you. These people are hungry for energy and will try to get it any way they can. Create healthy boundaries.
Conversely, spend time around people who lift you up and inspire you. When you are with people who have an overflow of energy, you receive a surge of good energy.
Learn to be present with the full range of your feelings. Your feelings are usually not one thing, they are usually a complex of feelings. Get used to being really present with all you feel instead of a limited range. The more real you are with what you are feeling, the faster that energy will move, and the easier it is to be present. And presence leads to greater access of energy.
Follow through on what you want to do. Pick a few small things that you can accomplish during the day. These accomplishments build momentum and allow you to feel successful making more energy available. Then you can take on the bigger things as you garner more energy.
Take time to nourish yourself: body, heart and soul. Activate energy by nurturing yourself with significant relationships, music, dance, nature, art, meditation, creativity, friends; whatever juices you.
Connect with a purpose bigger than yourself. Shift focus to something purposeful and meaningful, it’s a great way to build the energy of gratitude, love and contribution.
