The key to success is not how much time you spend working on a certain project, but it is how productive your efforts were. Often, productivity is directly linked with effective time-management. You may notice that successful people often have calendars or journals which they regularly update, allocating time slots to different tasks. This can prove to be quite helpful in terms of organizing their work, but also helps them achieve their goals sooner than everyone else. However, it isn’t only about managing your time.
Managing Your Personal Energy Is Just as Important – If Not More
Often, we take our time for our work or tasks, but we don’t seem to be getting anything done. For example, we switch on the laptop but end up staring at the screen for a long time before just giving up- thus wasting our time and not even getting any work done. Such instances tend to occur, with differing frequency from person to person.
The reason for this differing frequency is that while some people learn how to manage their energy well, others aren’t even aware that it is something that needs attention.
What Is Your Personal Energy?
While your physical energy obviously plays a role in how you live your life, your mental energy can sometimes play an even greater role. Your mental energy can include your emotional energy and your spiritual energy.
While your emotional energy deals with how draining your personal life experiences have been, with the impact your feelings have playing a role here- your spiritual energy basically refers to the state of your soul, which could or could not be related to your religion.
Why Does Personal Energy Need to Be Managed?
Well, when you’re low on physical energy, you can just get a good night’s sleep, change your diet or exercise more regularly- but with your personal energy, it can be difficult to replenish it. When your personal energy is low, even having the physical energy needed to complete tasks isn’t enough, and while you have the time, you still aren’t seeing the results.
This is because your mind is just exhausted, making it difficult for you to concentrate and thus to function. So, if you are using a calendar to manage your time, good for you. However, design a schedule and build a mindset that caters to your emotional and spiritual energy as well.
3 Tips On How To Manage Your Personal Energy:
First and most importantly is to learn to set energetic boundaries with not only family, friends, loved ones and strangers – also set personal boundaries on energies, thoughts and feelings.
Secondly, Look for ways to uplift your personal energy when you are hitting low points. Plan this ahead of time so you don’t keep sliding down a slippery slope into depression or other emotions that drain you.
Third, do your best to learn about your positive strengths and still acknowledge your weaknesses. We are all human and are perfection in motion; when you allow yourself to know you are doing the best you can with you currently have, then be gentle on yourself.
They say that God (Source, the Creator, the Divine, or whatever name you feel is right for you) created man in His own image. But, what does that imply? It means that He has blessed us with His divine spirit and shared with us very small fractions of His attributes. For example, the mercy and sympathy we feel for others is a reflection of the limitless mercy of God. The anger we feel for our enemies is an image of His wrath. On the other hand, the love we feel for other beings on this planet comes from His never-ending oceans of love. The point is, while it’s true that the creator has blessed the entire universe from his divinity, there is something special within every man and woman which, if unlocked and utilized correctly, can help people realize their true potential and connect with the divine. That “special something” is the divine masculinity and divine femininity which all of us have within us.
Meanwhile, in this blog post, I will share with you some tips and techniques that you can use to connect with the inner God or Goddess within you so that you can lead your life in the best way possible and find eternal happiness in this world and the next. Do note that these apply to both men and women! Let’s begin:
1. Stop Running Away from Your Feelings
The modern world, which relies heavily on technology, has eliminated physical distances but has distanced us emotionally. In a way, we have become like robots, with very little or absolutely no feelings. The idea of running away from your feelings has created a huge deficit of spiritual energy amongst humans, which has distanced us from the divine. So, if you truly want to connect with your divine, the first change that you are going to have to make is to stop neglecting and running away from your feelings. Once you acknowledge your feelings and those of the people around you, you will notice a general feeling of peacefulness running through your body and the courage to face the challenges of life.
2. Meditate Every Now and Then
There comes a time when you need to disconnect from the noise of the world, sit down somewhere quiet, and breathe deeply while listening to the voice of solitude and peace. In other words, you need to meditate! Meditation has been practiced for centuries by mankind. It is considered to be a gateway to the spiritual realm and a tool to establish a deep connection with your divine self. Hence, the next thing that you should do is to meditate every day for a few minutes to strengthen that bridge which connects you with your divine self. I guarantee that, as time passes, it will begin to feel like a necessity and you won’t be able to miss even a single meditation session!
3. Speak to the Divine
Many people are under the impression that spiritual healing and fulfillment involves the use of only meditation or techniques that require a person to sit quietly. That is, of course, not entirely true. At times, it is crucial to be a bit more vocal and let your words literally do the talking. In the case of activating your divine, it involves actively ASKING for the Higher Authority to allow you to get closer and unlock your hidden potential. You can do this by reciting affirmations along the lines of “I’m worthy of love. I’m a sentient being that deserves the attention of the divine. Today, I open myself up to higher power.”
4. Don’t Take Your Intuition for Granted
Have you ever felt the sudden impulse to avoid undertaking a certain task? Or have you ever guessed something you had absolutely no clue about but later found that you were right? That wisdom and guidance come from the power of intuition, which is the ability to guess something before it has even happened! Our intuition comes directly from the divine. It’s how God protects us from harm and directs us towards things that benefit us, out of love and mercy. Many of us tend to ignore our intuition and don’t act upon it until it’s too late, which distances us further from the divine. So, pledge to take it seriously.
Considering everything that we have discussed so far, it becomes clear that connecting to the divine involves merely making certain changes in your life, changes which are relatively simple and do not cost even a single dime! It’s amazing how, by sacrificing nothing at all, one can easily unlock their full potential by connecting with the hidden image of God within them, regardless of their gender. This goes to show that divine peace and fulfillment are well within the reach of mankind – we just have to make small efforts to reach out and grab them. Finally, I would like to point out that all the problems of the world would be solved if everyone became aware of their divine-selves and tried to be more sympathetic, merciful, and loving towards one another. So, let us pledge to make that effort!
“Karma moves in two directions. If we act virtuously, the seed we plant will result in happiness. If we act non-virtuously, suffering results.” – Sakyong Mipham
This simple notion behind karma is what makes it so beautiful yet terrifying at the same time. You reap what you sow – that’s the one, unquestionable truth of life. Throughout my life, I have witnessed many individuals wronging other people and have the exact or equal misfortune happen to them either immediately or after a few years. Being a law-abiding citizen of the universe, I always try my best to ensure that I do not hurt those around me, either intentionally or unintentionally. This is because I’m well aware of the wrath of the universe. And this is the exact reason why I’m always telling people to think at least twice before taking any decision!
That being said, we often hear stories about the sweetest of all people suffering from unfortunate events related to their health, career, or relationships among other things. Here, a question arises that if the universe always punishes those who wrong others, then why do the “good” people have to endure the hardships and tests of life? Or more specifically, why do bad things tend to happen to good people? The answer to that question is simple: the bad karma is literally programmed in their lives! What this simply means is that the wounds of the past, inflicted or suffered by their ancestors, are the reasons why such people find themselves on the bad side of karma, despite not having harmed a single soul in their entire lives. At first, it doesn’t seem fair that they have to pay for the mistakes of their ancestors. But you have to realize that, sooner or later, if we don’t take action, the universe restores its balance by itself and it doesn’t matter who or what is at the receiving end of that restoration.
If you are one of the people who are affected by the actions of their ancestors, then don’t be afraid – fortunately, there are certain tips and techniques using which you can get rid of your pre-programmed bad karma. And I can assist you! As an expert Karma Clearer and Remover of Negative Family Patterns, I help people lead a life full of happiness and free from all sorts of anxiety, stress, and depression.
Meanwhile, in this article, I will share some of the many tips to help you get started with your bad karma-clearing journey. Let’s begin!
Pinpoint What Karma is Doing to You
The first and foremost thing that you must do is to identify or “pinpoint” exactly how bad karma is affecting your life. Are you feeling stuck in your career? Do you feel less healthy every morning? Or have you started experiencing a shortage of wealth lately? It all depends on what your ancestors did. The circumstances and hardships being faced by all individuals are unique in nature. Therefore, to get rid of the problem at the roots, you first have to revert to its original source or identify what it really is.
Cut off Toxic People from Your Life
Toxic relationships can drain the happiness right out of a person’s life. Chances are that the sadness, anxiety, and blockages that you are experiencing in your life aren’t resulting from you being on the bad side of karma but simply because of certain individuals in your life. On the other hand, those people being a part of your life could be a result of bad karma. You can’t really be 100% sure which one it is, however, what you can do is to sever all ties with those people. By doing so, you would not only be doing yourself a favor but you MIGHT also be getting rid of what the universe has cursed you with.
Give Something Back to the Universe
If cutting off toxic people doesn’t change your life around, then perhaps it’s time that you took things to the next level. How? By doing something that will please the powers of the universe and lift the curse of bad karma that has been running in your family. As I mentioned above, the universe tends to restore balance by itself. However, to avoid being on the bad side of this balancing process, you could do an act of kindness and basically tell the universe that you are ready to change and no longer deserve to pay for the mistakes of your ancestors.
Learn to Forgive and Forget
Another great way of healing bad karma is learning to forgive others for their mistakes. After all, isn’t that what you really want from the universe? Forgiveness for your mistakes and the mistakes of the previous generations? By forgiving other people, you not only set examples for those around you, but also give the universe a good reason to bless you with the same thing in return. So, the next time someone does something wrong, be quick to forgive and forget to restore the balance. Maybe… just maybe, the universe will do the same for you.
To summarize everything discussed above: Whatever you do in life, whether good or bad, will result in punishment or reward. These results can have effects that could last for generations. So learn to forgive, be more aware of your actions, cut off toxic relationships, and do an act of kindness every day to contribute towards making life better for yourself and those around you.
To live a happy and healthy life, the energy within your body and that which surrounds you has to stay positive. Naturally, everyone feels stressed or depressed at times, depending on the circumstances, but staying this way for longer periods is something which not only harms you spiritually and mentally, but also physically.
It is always easy to distinguish between those who have negative energy and those who have positive energy, as it tends to control a person’s feelings and behavior. A person’s energy normally comes from past events that have affected their life, what problems they face today and their mindset.
Additionally, the negative energy that surrounds a person can build up over time. This is because, in our daily life, we are surrounded by negative energy all the time. From the traffic that we face every day to the stresses of work, the negative energy that came from our interaction with someone can stay with us and impact our life and the way we feel.
To protect ourselves and our homes from unwanted energy, there are several methods that can be employed. One of the tried and tested methods to combat negative energy is the use of essential oils.
Essential oils are basically extracts of different plants and herbs, where the plant is crushed and distilled to give a purified version of the essence of the plant. With technology, essential oils have become easier to manufacture since they can now be found in packaged bottles, available for purchase. However, the use of essential oils dates back centuries, with the same plants that we now use to extract the oils from being used for various purposes.
One of the best things about essential oils is the fact that they can be used for practically everything, even for warding off negative energy and encouraging positivity. Here are the essential oils which can be used specifically for protection.
Essential rose oil, also called Rose Ottos, are used to counteract stress and anxiety, both of which can result from being subjected to negative energy. Additionally, it is also used to help people heal after the loss of a loved one or any other cause for grief, proving to have a marked effect on the person’s mood and psyche.
Rose oil is currently produced with the most frequency in Turkey, and historically, the Turkish have been the masters of the rose oil trade since decades as they found the plant in Bulgaria and began the distillation process at the time.
This essential oil is one which, according to several sources, was mentioned in the Bible. Other than that, its use can be traced back to the time of the Pharaohs where it was used for various purposes such as embalming and healing wounds. Other civilizations such as that of the Greeks and the Chinese have also used myrrh essential oil.
It is a tree resin and has strong protective properties against negative energy, dispelling any unwanted energy in the environment.
The aroma of Peppermint is one which all of us are probably familiar with, owing to how commonly it is used nowadays. Though its parent plant originated in the Mediterranean, it is widely produced in numerous countries all over the world.
Peppermint’s flavor and aroma are extremely soothing and can release tension in the body and even within a room. They have been used for their physical qualities over the years, but have become quite popular for their use in getting rid or acting as a shield against any form of negative energy within or around a person.
This essential oil is one which possibly has the greatest historic importance considering how the Romans made use of it on a regular basis while they were bathing, as a soothing and cleansing agent. Furthermore, lavender has also been mentioned in the Bible as part of the Song of Solomon.
Lavender essential oil is used regularly as it stimulates the brain to calm down and can even be used as a sleeping agent for its relaxing effect on the brain and the nerves. Another one of its attributes is its ability to reduce anxiety and tension, again protecting against negative energy.
An extremely valuable essential oil, this product is currently marketed by countries such as Oman and Somalia, though several other countries are creating this oil as well.
Its value goes back centuries where it was used excessively as incense in religious ceremonies. The reason for its use is that the aroma of this essential oil is soothing and also helps dispel negative energy. Today, it is used in several religious locations and still holds a significant value for many.
How can essential oils be used?
Essential oils can be used through several techniques.
They can be sprayed, especially after diluting them with water as some oils are quite strong. You can dilute them depending on your preference.
Furthermore, essential oils can be dabbed onto your skin or on your belongings, especially your pillow or blanket when you need to relax before sleeping. You can also add them to your bath, which is also used as a relaxation tool.
Lavender, though mostly used as an essential oil, can also be used in the form of dried up remnants of the original plant.
Essential Oils and Pets
When using essential oils, something which you need to keep in mind is how they tend to effect babies, children and pets. Pets especially can be averse to essential oils due to the toxic effects of these oils on them. Cats dislike lemongrass and peppermint while germanium can harm animals such as spiders and turtles. When using an essential oil, read up on how they effect animals if you own any pets.
Keeping negative energy from entering and then harming the balance in your life is essential if you want to live a fulfilling and successful life. Negative energy has the power to affect your professional and personal life, so don’t take it lightly!
Using essential oils can go a long way and the main reason for its excessive use is how they are easily available on the market and the methods with which they are applied are quite straightforward.
Today, I would like to talk about some stone-cold facts. Did you know that the practice of using crystals in healing rituals date back to 6,000 years? At the time of Sumerians of Mesopotamia, crystals were used to ward-off negative energy. In Ancient Egypt, quartz was placed on the eyes of the dead to guide them into after life. Perhaps the true use of crystals has been mastered by Chinese and Hindus. The former race of people uses it as a concept of chi or qi, and the latter people use it as a concept in aligning chakras (a word from Sanskrit that references to the spiritual energy center that lies within the human body). In some cultures, it is also believed that a healing stone takes the brunt of the challenges coming your way, sparing you. The after effects become visible on the stone in the form of cracks.

While healing stones are real and do work, you also need to know about the placebo effect. It is possible that any ailment you have might not have been healed by the crystal, but due the positive thoughts and routine you adopted once you had it on you. Before making up your mind, here is what the father of physics, Albert Einstein had to say about healing crystals and stones:
“Everything in life is vibration, and just like sound waves, your thoughts match the vibrations of everything that manifests in your life. Therefore, if you think crystals have healing potential, the positive vibes of the stones will amplify those thoughts”
7 Must Have Crystals for a Healthier Life
When you are curious about crystals and their role in harnessing their power in your life, you will go to extreme lengths to understand the different types and their benefits. While the tumbled stones mentioned above are more common, here are 7 crystals that have amazing and long-lasting effects on your mind and body:

Women entrepreneurs are juggling with so many things these days, interacting with so many people, and balancing multiple commitments; spouse, children, parents, friends, partners, collaborators, clients, and many more. When we come to think of energy cords, we usually think of them in terms of the ties and bonds we develop in intimate relationships. However, energy cords are developed in our professional lives too, with our coworkers, bosses, business partners, and clients. These relationships are not intimate in the strict sense of word yet since we see these people every day, spend a considerable part of our time with them and energy on them, all these relationships begin to carry a stream of energy, emit an emotional charge. When we develop negative business and professional relationships, they begin affecting our work, life, and passion. Here are top four reasons you should try to heal the negative energy cords in your business often and help it thrive:
Renewal of your Creative and Spiritual Energy
Energy cord cutting and purging is so much essential for spirit, heart, mind-centered entrepreneurs who are in the service provider paradigm. These types of entrepreneurs are personal development coaches, trainers, counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, and healers. They interact with a lot of people and their emotional problems on daily basis, and as a result, they begin to feel and emotional, physical and mental drained many a times. Healing and purging their energy cords enable them to replenish their energies, renew their focus and zeal, and serve their clients’ needs in a better and more wholesome manner.
Developing a Mutual Wavelength of Expectations
This point is most relevant for creative, heart-centered entrepreneurs and the kind of creative work they do and the special kind of challenges they encounter. They are designers, painters, musicians, illustrators, and writers. These types of entrepreneurs interact with complex ideas; theirs and of their clients. They often feel mental and creative stagnation, a failure to develop a mental wavelength. When clients think less of us, feel frustrated with their own progress, doubt our intentions and our expertise, then a negative energy cord is developed between us, and it starts projecting its shadow on our work. That’s why this negative energy cord needs to be cut, so that you are in a better position to read the clients’ mind, understand his or her needs, are able to be your best, and deliver your best work.
Establishing and Reestablishing Boundaries
When you are working for yourself, you are your own boss, yet you will come across the challenge of developing healthy boundaries between yourself and the client, your personal life and your business. This is especially true when you are developing a new business or are working from home; in these cases, your boundaries become blurred. Business partners and clients who are pushy and needy try to take advantage and impinge on your personal space. In order to deal with them effectively, you have to redraw and reassert your boundaries constantly. If you want to keep continuing with your business partner and your clients in a conflict free manner, these negative relationships need to evolve through cord cutting.
LettingGo of Energy Sapping Clients
Clients and business partners who are extremely difficult and unreasonable cause the most stress in your business. They begin projecting their needs on to you, make unreasonable demands, go back on their word, and don’t pay promptly. The negative energy cord we have with them starts sapping our energy and passion, and making us feel overwhelmed and drained at times. Thus, it is very important to cut these kinds of energy cords in your business and life, so that you can make more room in your life for better clients and develop positive energy cords with them.
Cleansing and renewing the negative energy in your business can help you immensely, as it can help your business, passion, and life not only survive but also thrive. Having said that, I understand that not everyone is capable of being his or her own healer; that’s where an energy healer can step in and take things over. Energy cord cutting is a complex process, but once it is done, it brings immense freedom and joy.
