Daily OM - good advice for me :)

I was delighted to find this in my mailbox today.  I have been a subscriber to the Daily OM for some time and love it when their message synch up with my life.  This weekend is stacking up to be a busy one.  I'll be watching Anah on Saturday and trying to keep up with an super active 4 years old is wild!!  And, then on Sunday my oldest grandson graduates from high school, and we are having a dinner for him.  I am so grateful that my daughter decided to have it at her home instead of mine :)  Anyway... here's the post:

Centered And Safe
Keeping Your Energy Strong

Being a sensitive person in this world can sometimes feel very draining due to the fact that we are very receptive to the energy of the people and environment around us. Still, we want to be part of situations that involve small or large groups of people, and we would like to do it without becoming overwhelmed or exhausted. With a few simple strategies we can entertain at home and socialize in the world without running the risk of losing ourselves in someone else's energy or giving our energy away. All this takes is a little time and practice, and the result-being part of social events without ending up depleted-is well worth the effort.

The whole purpose of this self-care ritual is to help keep yourself strong energetically when you are in a situation that could potentially be draining. For example, if you are having a party, you might take some time to prepare beforehand. Just as you spend time cleaning your home and preparing food, it is essential to prepare your inner home for the event. This can be as simple as taking a mindful walk or a cleansing bath, or engaging in any other activity that gives you energy. You can even just sit alone for a set period of time, tuning in to your energy and connecting to yourself so that you are less easily carried away by the energy outside of yourself. You may employ a mantra such as "I am centered and safe in the home of myself." You can also charge a crystal or gemstone or any piece of jewelry with protective energy and wear it or carry it with you. This can be helpful during the event when just seeing it or touching it can remind you that you are centered and safe.!

Keep in mind that it is always acceptable to excuse yourself for a bathroom break or to step outside for a moment. This can give you the time and space you need to check in with yourself and correct any energetic imbalances you detect. Whether you are at home or out in the world, taking care of yourself in this way enables you to keep your energy strong, even as you open yourself to others.

Yes, I'm a Daily Om-er from way back myself. I have quite a collection in my little "saved" file that they so nicely maintain for me.

Today's wisdom is valuable to me on so many levels!

Warm Blessings -
