How the exercise goes:
Imagine what Universal Source Energy looks like to you. The image itself could look like the sun. Once you have this image in mind, move onto the next step. Next, imagine a cord coming from you and attaching itself to this Universal Source Energy. Where the cord is placed from you universal source is up to you. There is not right and wrong, just personal choice. Ask your higher self* (see note below) to attach this cord and that this cord remains there for the course of your lifetime. Nothing can sever this cord. You are connected.
Take a moment to check in with yourself about how you feel. Do you feel a new surge of energy? This could feel like a sensation or tingling in your hands, head or feet. Or you could suddenly feel more energy coming inside of you. Don’t worry if you don’t feel these things. I’m passing along experiences people have had once I've given them this instruction.
Now that you connected, remember the connection and that you do not have to go outside yourself to replenish. What do I mean by “go outside yourself”? We have many habits, for example, where we “think” that we need to get energy from people to feed ourselves. Remember: thoughts, emotions, etc. are all forms of energy. When we feel “down” this feeling really at its heart is energy depletion. So to feel better, we have formed habits to replenish our energy. We chat on the phone with a friend, or seek attention in the workplace. This may work temporarily to make ourselves feel better but does this ever work in the long term? Consider using Universal Energy Source to replenish. Then, when you call a friend you can really be present and not with an underlying need to have this other person make you feel better; or when you step up to contribute at work, it'll be to contribute to the whole of the organization rather than seeking energy to replenish just yourself.
Next time you feel like you need a surge of energy, ask your higher self to send you a dose from Universal Energy Source. There’s plenty there. Never assume you cannot receive more. The illusion of scarcity is an illusion. And once you form new habits, where you now know where there is an unending source of energy, you’ll naturally be more in the flow. Make sense? I hope so. Best, Jen
*I use the term higher self as a universal term. Your higher self could include your true higher self (your soul) or your guides. It's up to you. It's your soul & guides who will perform this service for you once you ask.
