Energizing New Beginnings
by Robin L. Silverman
There is always great energy around new beginnings. When we fall in love with someone or something in our lives, we magnify the good in it or them and tend to rationalize or diminish any
possible downsides. The usual barriers to change—including fear of risk or leaving our comfort zones—disappear, at least for a little while.
New beginnings stir hope; hope that we are more or can have more than we have ever had before. Something wonderFULL is happening or is about to happen! Our senses are stirred, our hearts are open,
and we welcome every pleasant sensation. We awaken every day expecting to be delighted by what we discover.
Eventually, though, what was new is not any longer. Our beloved tells the same joke for the fifth time, and the punchline is no longer funny because we already know it. The initial excitement of our
new job turns to the drudgery of everyday work. The thrill of our new home fades when the decorating isn’t finished or the dishwasher breaks down. Eventually, we find ourselves longing for new beginnings again.
This is not necessarily a bad thing, as it keeps the fires of creation burning. But for some people, it leads to living in the past or worse—not really living at all. So what makes the radiance of
new beginnings last? Letting them go.
This seems counter-intuitive. Why would we release something that thrills us to the core? Because when we hold onto something, we limit it, and ourselves. Energy wants to transform, not be
contained. This is because the energy of new beginnings is truly love in motion. We want something new and call it to us, but then, far too often, we try to control or hold on to it, and it fizzles fast. However, when we release its positive energy, it goes out into the
universe and seeks its match in character, tone and intensity. When it does, it returns to our lives in delightfully surprising ways.
So what does it mean to release a new beginning? It is to become fully aware and awake to what is happening, using our five physical senses and our sixth sense. These are the details that stay in our
memory as well as the blessings we have to give.
Once we have received and taken in all we can, we can release it in a myriad of ways. We can share our good mood by sharing it with another. We can hum, sing, dance or make art. We can pour ourselves
into our work without expectation. The idea is to let the energy flow out of us and back into the world, not hoard it to ourselves.
Other ways to release new beginnings include taking the love and joy of them into meditation, and letting them be transformed into a deep peace that all is truly well with us and our world. Once that
happens, our very presence becomes a light to others; people can feel our positive energy without our having to say or do anything.
A third way to release new beginnings is to run their energy of love through our chakra systems, allowing it to renew our physical forms. Or we can gather the energy in our hearts and then open them
to all the world and universe, allowing the energy to go wherever it can do the most good.
These gentle, conscious ways of using the energy of new beginnings ensure that we get the greatest benefits from them while simultaneously renewing our world. But there is a catch, of course: we have
to allow the energy of love to reach and restore us in the first place. For many people, it is difficult to be loved, and so although their new beginnings hold the hope that things will be “different this time,” they end up being disappointed or let down. Although
circumstances may have changed, they have not changed, and so wonder and joy leave them very quickly.
This is because human beings exist at many different vibrational levels, so if you have a new beginning where you go from fear to anger, or from guilt to apathy, the new energy will not keep you
comfortable for long. Going from horrible circumstances to not-so-bad once is a relief, but you’ll still crave more. This is another reason to keep releasing what you have: so you can experience higher and higher levels of vibrational living.
When new beginnings are energized, everyone touched by them benefits. So let the love go, and you’ll make a space for more to enter.
