Back in the day (I won’t say exactly what day, but it was a while ago), the expression “Keep your head on straight” meant “don’t loose your mind”, “don’t go crazy”, or “don’t get all caught up thinking about stuff you shouldn’t be thinking about”. Today I tell people, “Learn about clearing your energy“.
There’s so much free floating negativity that getting caught up in dark thoughts is as easy as getting out of bed. Add that to the fact that we’ve all accumulated baggage from the past, and keeping one’s head on straight is a challenge at best.
The advantage of keeping a straight head is pretty obvious. It’s part of our inner environment — we live there. The things we focus on day in and day out totally influence how we feel about ourselves and the world, and contribute to what we attract to ourselves. (Notice I said “contribute”. It takes a lot more than just our thoughts to make up our reality. But more about that another time.)
Stuff comes up, we get triggered, and how we respond determines whether we’re adding to the negativity we carry, or releasing it. It takes some work to let go of negative distractions and stay focused on what’s important. I call it maintenance.
Different Ways Of Clearing Your Energy
There are many ways of doing head straightening maintenance. Exercise, meditation, recreation, “mental health breaks”, therapy, reading, gardening… it’s good to have a variety of alternatives to choose from, and do something on a regular bases. It helps if you enjoy it, both because we tend to do things we enjoy and not do things we don’t, and because joy helps with clearing.
Over the years I’ve paid a lot of attention to keeping my head on straight, and have learned all sorts of ways to help the process. Here are some of the programs I’ve developed to help others.
Clearing Your Energy
