Universal Energy – Getting in the Flow and Staying There

Universal energy is the life force energy that runs through all living things.  When we’re connected to it, we are connected to the essence of who we are, our soul.

It is from this place that we open ourselves up to the depth and richness life has to offer. It’s where we tap into the true meaning and purpose of our lives.  When we intentionally live our lives from the soul, much of what used to consume us (materialism, the need for external validation, preoccupation with status, and other egoic concepts) starts to fall away because we tune into the eternal nature of our being.

The purest forms of energy available to us are unadulterated, unprocessed, unfiltered.  Nature, sunlight, water, mountains, eating super clean foods are some of the most revitalizing sources of energy and easily accessible ways to nurture our minds, bodies and spirits.

Our Higher Self is the pathway to universal energy.  The more we work on ourselves and raise our vibe, the more we open ourselves up to the fullness of life, and move faster, more purposefully, and more intentionally.

Here is an excerpt from my debut book SOAR, where I discuss the Higher Self and its connection to Universal Energy:

“The Higher Self helps us stay focused on the true meaning of life and our purpose in it.  It’s the part of us that is focused on the eternal nature of our being, and not what is happening on the physical plane.  It’s what gives our lives depth and richness.  It allows us to connect directly to Source Energy, and is always striving to deliver to us what is in our highest good.  Source Energy has several names that can be used interchangeably, such as Universal Energy, the Divine, the Universe, God, etc., and provides the never-ending life force energy that runs through each and every one of us.  

Why is it important to connect to this lifeline and work to keep the connection active and vibrant?  This is where our true power is realized.  It’s where we begin to realize that we are limitless and feel unstoppable, untethered and liberated.  The soul is concerned with concepts such as happiness, fulfillment, spiritual growth, transformation, evolution, compassion, kindness, forgiveness, peace, generosity, selflessness and other similar ideas.  These are all incredibly powerful virtues, and ones that I would contend are woefully undervalued and under-practiced in today’s society.”

Here are 5 ways to get into the flow of universal energy:

  1. Spend time in nature.

Sit by a lake or ocean, go for a walk in the woods, lay on a blanket and watch the clouds, or stargaze.  There are so many ways to enjoy the beauty and stillness in nature.

  1. Unplug

Disconnect regularly from technology and unplug from the outside world.

  1. Rest, relaxation, sleep

Schedule time to power down every day.  Follow a solid bedtime routine that helps you optimize your sleep.

  1. Meditate

Start each day with five minutes of meditation to get yourself in the headspace to approach the day with calm and poise.

  1. Identify what is slowing you down.

What is getting in your way?  What is impeding the connection to your highest self?  Doubt, fear, being overscheduled, toxic relationships, stress, anxiety, overwhelm, rushing, not having boundaries, not using your voice, are few examples of things that get in the way of us connecting to our highest selves.

The universe loves to communicate with us, and it does so through what are called synchronicities.

Synchronicities are little signs from the universe that show us that we’re on the right path.  The universe is always communicating with us, and these “cosmic winks” are available to us every day. 

Next week we’ll look at examples of synchronicities, and I’ll give you ideas for inviting more synchronicities into your life, so you can have the validation and affirmation from the universe that you’re on the right path.
