Uplifting Energy Exercise: Greeting The Day, Greeting The Night
This is a lovely Modern Energy exercise to "set you up right" for a good day, and a good night. It is quick and easy and highly recommended. From EMO Energy In Motion, Silvia Hartmann, DragonRising 2016.
This is a beautiful and very moving exercise that benefits you in many more ways than you might suspect just yet. Do the exercise for a week and you will begin to know just how much support and sustenance there is for us - simply by virtue of being here. It is also a training exercise to teach us about the energetic realities of giving and receiving energies and to give us practice at working equally confidently with either form of flow.
Since I first created this exercise, a decade has passed and I couldn’t tell you on how many occasions this simple energy movement brightened my day and gave me energy for both day and night, so I commend it to you personally and highly indeed.
Greeting The Day
Step outside as soon as you have risen and open yourself to the World. Take a moment to breathe deeply and then say, "Day, I greet you."
Allow this day - rainy or bright, cold or hot, no matter what - to come to you, to bring you its totally unique properties, for not one day is ever quite the same as the day before, nor all the days to follow; allow this day to give you its own unique energy and information.
State your intention to receive this unique energy into all your systems, and now pay attention to any physical responses you might be having to this enterprise. Any emotions, where they localised? Place your hand there and soften the sensation, until the energy there runs clearly in all ways. Any sensations of pressure, discomfort, nervousness, any sensations of rejecting this day at all, localise them and make them run smoothly.
One more time, re-state the words, "Day, I greet you." Remain with this for just a few moments, then thank the day for its unique gifts on this occasion and step back inside and into your ordinary life.
Greeting The Night
When the night has fallen, step outside.
Take a moment to look around, to get into rapport with the night and become a little more still and a little more observant, and then say, "Night, I greet you."
As before, check yourself for any physiological sensations or emotions which might denote an underlying energy blockage that stops a true exchange of energies between you and the night on this occasion.
Especially, look for any "stuck" energy that might have accumulated during the day in your dealings in the Hard and soften this, allowing the night to take away whatever is no longer needed, drawing all this up and into its endless self.
Give the night everything you need to give, really allow it to draw from you your energetic burdens, your unexpressed stale energies, anything at all – your love, your loneliness, your unfulfilled desires. The beautiful night will take it all.
Allow this process to complete - it can be as swift as a thought, that is entirely up to you.
Give a sincere "Thank You" to the night for its assistance and its lessons and then return to your normal activities at this time.
These exercises take just a few moments of your time each day but in energetic terms, they are truly profound and most balancing, soothing, healing and energising.
You will notice that with even two or three repetitions, your ability to channel energy from the day and night increases dramatically as your systems and their pathways are becoming clearer and more efficient. To begin with, you might strongly "take from the day" and "release to the night."
As time goes by you will find that indeed, for both the day and the night what is happening is a spiral energy exchange of giving and taking in equal measure, as each have their own unique lessons and energies to give, as well as assisting you in taking what is no longer needed.
It is a beautiful and very moving exercise that benefits you in many more ways than you might suspect just yet.
Do the exercise for a week and you will begin to know just how much energy support and sustenance there is for us - simply by virtue of being here.
