Everyone can use basic spiritual tools to feel better.
The huge benefit of using basic spiritual tools (or intuitive or energy-awareness tools) is that it makes you feel better. Why else do it?
Practicing the intuitive tools I'll describe in upcoming posts reduces stress, makes you feel happier, clears out a lot of extraneous stuff from your personal space that really isn't you, and causes your own energy to run more smoothly.
All this has direct health benefits: it helps remove blocks to taking care of yourself and enables you to find reservoirs of self-healing.
On top of that, you gain rewarding insights about yourself and your life, and better tactics for creating the outcomes you want to create.
Intuitive abilities are in your hard-wiring as a human being.
You are wired to possess fundamental intuitive abilities. In fact, as a child, you knew how to use your intuition, although maybe not in an organized or conscious way. This knowledge was probably lost, forgotten, or hidden in the process of growing up, when intuitive abilities are often derided as childish, fantastical, useless, or at worst, crazy.
But you still use them, and have glimpses of yourself doing so – when you have a “gut feeling,” know something “off the top of your head,” and respond to other messages from your inner guidance system that just happen to steer you right.
Probably the main way you’ve come to think about managing energy is in terms of “stress.” Without a doubt, any of the stresses our bodies experience, whether mental, emotional, physical, or situational – whether from work, relationships, family, the institutions we interact with, our physical environment, our behavior, or the food we put in our mouths – can make life more difficult to manage and can foster other physical disorders and illnesses.
Even fun stress can create adrenaline surges that affect our health. Most damaging, however, according to many scientific studies, is the experience of incessant stress.
Using spiritual mechanics reduces external stress. It also helps you release stress-causing internal blocks in your energy systems.
In other words, spiritual mechanics are a toolbox of actions to respond to what’s going on in you and around you amid the flux of each day.
What are your energy and your energy space?
Now that I’ve thrown around the term “energy," it wouldn’t hurt to define it. “Energy” can mean:
~ The capacity of a physical system to cause change or perform work
~ Physiological fuel
~ Strength, vitality, usable power
~ The resources to act, think, exist
~ The essence filling all matter, living and inanimate
~ A spiritual substance that is you; your spirit
How can this untouchable substance be felt, known, seen, controlled, played with, and harnessed by you?
What is the difference between your personal space and everything else? How can you give energy to yourself, and use your own energy? How can you get rid of energy that keeps and causes pain and discomfort -- and attract energy that feels and works better for you? How can you differentiate between being responsive to those outside of your energy space and being responsible for them? How can you create outcomes you want?
