Meditation: The Wonder Fuel

Do you ever feel like you are running out of energy?  You know what I'm talking about - those days where everyone wants a piece of you.  Everywhere you go, someone needs to ask you a question, or a favour, or tells you to do something.  I've had plenty of these days and they used to drive me crazy.  The kind of crazy where I used to just snap at anyone.  I'd have a certain tolerance level and when it was breached, watch out cause here comes the BOOM!

Fortunately, we live in a universe which is filled with energy, and when I say filled, I  mean it basically is energy.

"The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together." 

Yep, I'm a Star Wars geek. Join me or get over it.

Back to this energetic universe that we live in.  Since it is everywhere, then it is not possible to ever run out.  Oh, we run low, that's for sure.  But just like your car when it runs low on gas, what do you do?  You fill it up of course!  So what's the logical thing to do when you run low on energy?  You fill up on it of course!

I know, I know.  You're gonna say "how the hell do I do thatAnd where do I do that?  I can't just stop in the middle of the work day and "fill up on energy".  You're right, you're right.  I do know what it's like.  So how about this: Instead of filling up when you get low, you start your day by filling up on energy, before all those energy vampires try to bleed you dry?

What's the best way to do that?  In my opinion, there is nothing better than meditation when it comes to refueling. Mediation allows you time ( 15 minutes) to just calm the hell down.  It quiets your mind, regulates your breathing, calms your nerves.  It tells the universe: "I'm filling up on your energy to get me through the day."  The universe is at your command, and will deliver the energy you need.  You just need to allow it, which is where meditation comes in.

Here's the bad news:  You're gonna have to get up earlier.  Period.  No question, especially if you have a full time job and a family.  You're just gonna have to get up earlier.  Just do it, okay?  Just commit to taking 15 minutes for yourself every morning so that you can fill up with energy, so that you can handle the day's stress with a smile.  You'll not only be doing yourself a favour, but you'll also be doing everyone around you a favour too.  But, do it for yourself.  Want more for yourself.  You deserve it.
