Slowing down was really challenging for me. I would push myself to the absolute limit. I didn’t have an off switch. I had to get to a place where I could sustain my energy, and I didn’t understand that if I had the energy it was okay to rest. If I had the energy it was okay to sleep. It took me a long time to work that out because I had never had that story.
Today I understand that there is a BIG difference between nervous energy – that feeling of your head running constantly – and not being able to switch it off. The kind of energy that feels like it is pulling you out of your physical and divine energy is more grounded and pulls you back into your physical.
Now when I sleep with the divine energy, I have a deep sustainable sleep. I wake up feeling rested. I no longer wake up feeling like I have been hit by a bus. Then when ideas start to come in, I am able to actually create a system, I ask myself, “Is this for me? Is this for me now?” And then I start working with the ideas to shape them and pull them into reality.
