It's easy to forget that we are all perfect in our own design. Sometimes we muck it up with habits and choices that do not serve us.

How’s Your Life Force?

How’s Your Life Force? How’s Your Life Force?

In order to lead a completely soul-filled, energetic life, giving life everything that you have to offer and being all that you can be, you must keep your soul power (life force) entirely strong and intact. I constantly remind people when I’m teaching that we’re all made up of energy!

As energetic beings, we have what’s known as energy cords, which we constantly emanate, whether consciously or unconsciously. When you direct your thoughts and energy to a particular person, place, object, situation, or even an uncompleted project, you begin to establish an energetic cord with whatever you’re focusing on. The more you send your power there or obsess about it, the bigger and stronger the cord becomes. In turn, what happens is that your energy attaches itself to the object of your concern, and your own precious resource seeps away from your soul, where it’s most needed.

I’m sure that you’ve heard the expression “giving your power away.” Well, that’s exactly what happens. Not only are you giving it away, which is a form of soul leakage, but you also become energetically entangled once this energy connection has been established. I’m not advocating that you never become attached or that you disconnect yourself from those around you or from life itself. You can have healthy attachments to people, places, and situations, ones that feed your soul and supply you with energy. In other words, I’m referring to anything that’s taking your power away and draining you — the unforeseen connections that pull or tug on your energy, leaving you feeling drained.


Take out your journal or make a list of whatever (or whoever) is draining, irritating, or upsetting you — or even issues you may be unclear about. These could be in any area, including your personal, work, or even your home life. Break down the list into categories, and go through them one by one.

Making this list is an important step. You’ll start noticing where your energy is going, and you’ll be able to make decisions that are more informed when you want to cut the cord and deal with it. It’s amazing when you start this process. You’ll get your energy back, and in so doing, you’ll begin healing every part of you. You don't have to cut all the cords at one. Go slow, and work at them one at a time.

Here are a few examples of potential draining energy cords:

  • Family concerns
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Lack of exercise
  • Putting off a health checkup
  • Relationship issues that have never been addressed
  • Uncompleted projects (personal, home, or work)
  • Unresolved financial issues
  • Excessive worrying
  • Taking on the problems of a friend

Give life your best, and do things that you feel passionate about instead of just talking about them. Remember that your body acts like one big psychic antenna, receiving energy, thoughts, and feelings — and the same metaphor applies when you’re sending out energy. 

Now it’s time to get your energy moving in the right direction and take a long, hard look at your life. When you’re interacting with the different people in it, ask yourself: “Are they giving you energy, or are they taking it away?” “Is there an even exchange?”

There should always be a balance of giving and receiving. I want to encourage you to become more consciously aware of when and where you give away your power — the power that infuses your soul and that’s meant for you. Honor it.

Live a Soul-filled life!
