Seems like a simple and logical question, doesn’t it?
When make a mess, say preparing a meal in the kitchen, or find half our wardrobe on the bedroom floor, or when the children leave toys and soap in the bathroom, we all would agree that at some point we need to clean up.
Why do we do that? Why do we clean up?
Yes, its because most of us like to have a clean and relatively ordered environment but there is another good reason.
Our mess impacts others. Our physical mess and our emotional mess.
Last month I talked about the Elements, Water, Air, Earth and Fire and how our emotional, mental and physical disorder add to the disharmony in the world. I talked about the fact that Anger is Fire. Being overly emotional or over sensitive is Water. Thinking too much or being overly analytical or unfocused is Air and being overly judgmental is Earth.
Too little energy however can affect us also. Not enough earth can leave us disconnected to our physical bodies. Not enough connection to Air leaves us unfocused and vague. Not enough connection Fire leves us lethargic and sleepy. Not enough connection to Water can affect our creativity.
Each element has its own guardians. When I worked and studied with Ian White founder of the Australian Bush Flower Essences he would share his stories of coming in contact with the elementals and consequently many people, finding themselves trusted by these beings in the bush, were gifted with a sighting or even a meeting with one or more of them.
The Gnomes of the world are the guardians of the Earth.
The Sylphs are guardians for the Air
The Salamanders are guardians of Fire
The Undines are the guardians of Water.
Our connection with the Elementals brings ourselves back into balance and consequently the world in which we live back into harmony and balance.
How do we clear and clean the energy we leave after feelings of disappointment, anger and upset?
How do we clear away the energy left by our thoughtless actions and cruel words?
How do we call back our judgments and blame and guilt?
There are people who feed on the negative energy of others. They love the drama, the upset and the disruption. Eckhart Tolle talks about the Pain Body. This, as he describes is the accumulation of painful life experiences that have not been fully faced or accepted. This leaves behind an energy of emotional pain. And I wrote last month this energy is not isolated into one person but becomes part of the whole energetic field in which we exist.
So what do you do?
Ask that the energy sent by you in a moment of disappointment, anger or judgment be returned to the Source to be healed and made whole.
It’s as simple as that. It requires Awareness, Intent, Words and Action.
Become aware of what happened and what you created. Make a clear intention to call back the energy. Connect to Spirit or whatever you believe. Say the words from your heart. And then get on with your day.
We ask so often what can we do to make a difference. This is one way to bring ourselves and the energy we put out into the world back into harmony and balance.
