  • Adding and Subtracting Emotional Energy Within Others

Each of us carries a certain energy frequency, but unlike what we are often made to believe, our energy patterns are not constant. That is to say we are neither inherently radiating ‘good energy’ or ‘bad energy’; the frequency we emit varies according to each moment. Our emotional energy is something we certainly want to be aware of, just as we want to be aware of the emotional energy of others. This worksheet provides us the opportunity to pause so that we might consider the frequencies we are both emanating and absorbing.

Positive Energy Balance

At the end of the day, we want to aim for a positive energy balance. In other words, we want to ensure that we are neither emitting too much emotional energy nor absorbing too much. This worksheet refers to “emotional withdrawals” and “emotional deposits”, which refers to the energy we give to others or receive.

Awareness of our emotions can help with this. In some way, we might consider this to be a mindfulness of emotions exercise. It is not a meditation but a reflection; it asks us to consider what are we giving off to others and what are we taking on. This human life is meant for us to both offer and receive support from others, but at the end of the day, we want to ensure that this giving and receiving is in balance.

Mindfulness of Emotional Energy

To be more mindful of the emotional energy we are dealing with, we can begin by taking note of what our emotions feel like in the body and how they lead us to interact with others. As we increase our capacity to sit with our emotions, we learn to navigate them in more effective ways. Because of this, we end up less likely to pass on excessive emotional energy to others.

In the same way, this deeper awareness of emotions helps us to navigate what others are feeling or experiencing. It helps us to set boundaries and to not take on emotions that do not belong to us. Ultimately, this leads to happier and healthier relationships and greater resilience, self-awareness, and strength.
