Lynn Morgan Carpenter: So we've been talking about energy, and I wanna continue that topic and really put a spotlight on our individual energetic gardens. So I really look at our energy, which is a live vibrational state. So this energy is not only felt by us, but literally everyone that comes, in that will encounter us is able to have a sense of our energy, especially depending on how in tune they are, but most people can have a sense and a vibe with others. So it's important. It's important, and not just for ourselves, but for those that we're interacting with. And just realizing that whatever is taking place internally, most likely gets transmitted and received by others. So it's important to take care of our energetic gardens and really be the gatekeeper and the tender, the garden, the gardener of our energy. And so I wanna share with you five different steps of how you can do this.
Number one is through a self connection practice. I've spoke of this many of times here, the reason why it's so important. And literally if it's just taking five to 10 minutes a day, but it's where you come in and you really connect with yourself. And in that connection, you're able to gain knowledge and data of how you are doing, how you're navigating life, how is going, and to be able to also tune into, the, the background of your feelings and emotions. Like what's the root of that? What is the, what is it coming from, whether it be a challenging time or feeling or emotion or it's an uplifting time, but just, you know, really starting to understand what's the root of this? What is it based from? And having the knowledge of that allows us to either expand what we feel is like, wow, this really brings me a sense of joy.
And a, a sense of enhanced energy. Then that allows you to realize, okay, when I do more of this, this elevates my energy, my state of energy. And then those that are, that we're being challenged by or struggled by, we can look at that and say, okay, what's really underneath this? Is there something that's needing my attention? Is there something that's needing to be shift? Is there a conversation that needs to be had? Is there an action I need to take? There is so much benefit from having a self-connection practice and the knowledge that you can learn about yourself is endless. And once you start this, it's literally like brushing your teeth and flossing at night. Once you start the habit, it's like, I have to live and, and do this every single day for myself. So that step, step one of tending to your energetic garden is really forming that self-connection practice.
Number two is acknowledging the state of your energy. So acknowledging what you are feeling, what your emotions are, acknowledging what's taking place energetically for you. And in that acknowledgement, the power of that is like when we can tune in and say, okay, this is how I'm feeling, this is what's taking place. And then having that second step of really acknowledging it, then it's us. Basically, if you can think of putting your arms around it, it's embracing like, okay, this is my energy. This is my garden. I am putting my arms around this, bouquet of thornless roses, and I am going to take ownership of really what this is for me. And I acknowledge it. I acknowledge it because it's right before me.
And then step number three is to then tap in. And with that acknowledgement, the next step is really to tap in and ask yourself, what is it that I need? What do I need? What do I need today? And it is absolutely okay to have a need every single day and to do whatever it is that you are needing to give yourself and nourish that need. I mean, this is just like putting water all over the garden, right? It's watering like daily. We need, we need that watering. So what is it that you need? And maybe I need to take a bath this evening, or I need to put my to-do list to the side and just give myself some time. I need to connect with my partner and have some romance. I need to link arms with a girlfriend and go have fun. I need to be spontaneous and just go somewhere and, take photographs of something that really brings me interest and, and joy, whatever it may be. But it's really acknowledging what your needs are. And it could be as simple as, I need more water. I need my favorite meal right now. I need a piece of chocolate, whatever, whatever it is.
But give yourself permission. So that's step number three actually, is that when you can acknowledge, your feelings, your emotions, and then you can witness and, know what your needs are. So it's acknowledging and then it's embracing and asking yourself, what is it that I need? It's then giving yourself permission to give it to yourself. Because literally, especially women, we can make so many excuses of why we shouldn't do that or why we shouldn't get, make time for what our bodies and our energy, our energetic garden is requesting of us.
So number four of tending to our energy garden is to really become aware of the dark clouds that can seep in and cover our energy. And that's any thoughts or behaviors or actions that have a low vibration. So this would be any type of behaviors that we know absolutely do not serve us. This will be negative thoughts, negative thought patterns. It can be blaming, so blaming others, blaming ourselves, judgment of others, judgment of ourselves. Also victimhood. So when we're stepping into a place of, of embodying, you know, being a victim in whatever circumstance it may be. All of that casts a shadow on our energetic garden and on our energy. And, and so just be really mindful that if you're starting to slip there of like, okay, I gotta shift this around. I have to shift this around cuz this is only gonna bring more of those dark clouds over over my energy.
And then the final step is taking radical responsibility for our lives. And so this is where, you know, taking that responsibility of I am important. And so I should really develop a relationship with myself like that's needed. That's crucial on my path and journey of life. Taking that time, taking the responsibility of if I don't spend some time with myself and really get to know myself and what my needs are and where I'm going and have, you know, start to bring in that sense of clarity to where I can even form an action step that's going in the direction that is needed and necessary for, for my wellness of my whole being.
If we aren't able to do that, then that becomes a challenge and it really will stagnate and really hold us back from taking full ownership of our lives, like really stepping into ownership. And I love this so much because as you're visualizing, hopefully you can like I can of this energetic garden. It's like you're looking at this and this is my landscape, this is my garden. I am responsible for what's planted here, for how it thrives, for how I'm fertilizing it, for how I'm watering and taking care of it. And this just allows us to really implant and root in to our, to our, our empowerment to our empowerment and really root into the sense of who we are as individuals and the reason why we came here and the impact we're meant to have. And just stepping into to that place because when we allow ourselves to step into that place and we can bring action to it, that's when the confidence will bloom.
It's when the self-esteem will rise. It's when the internal joy and peace and contentment will begin to root in. And um, and it's where we can really start to come into that place of our life and saying, this is my life. This is my life. And I get to tend to it and nurture it and love it and guide it and navigate it to the place that's going to serve myself, my family, my friends, my community, my world, and really do that in an intentional, beautiful way so that when I know that I'm here every single day, I am living in alignment. I am in full intention and I am living connected to my soul's purpose. I'm living a soul-driven life. And when we're on that path, everything feels better. We can breathe, we can stretch, we can smile, we can love, we can laugh, we can do all the things that we are also meant to experience here on this beautiful journey we call life.
So this week, tend to your energy, tend to your garden of energy. And and this really plants the seeds for our next steps of rooting in to not only our growth, but really rising up to who we are as individuals and ru and coming from that place of this is who I am and this is my expression in the world. So tending to your garden is going to allow you to have this next stage of really going into what is my evolvement, my growth, my enhancement here as I'm on this next cycle and phase of my life. So tend to your energetic garden. That's the focus this week.
