“You cannot control the behavior of others, but you can always choose how you respond to it.” ~ Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
If you’re highly empathic or have suffered from low energy for long periods during your life, through depression, then you may feel that it’s time to claim your energy back. Often domestic or other forms of abuse can make it appear that our energy has been reduced, but as Teal Swan says in the video below, it’s impossible to ‘take’ the energy of another person because of the law of free will.
It’s important that before you decide to begin claiming that energy back that you realize your energetic blockage, or issue was entirely your choice in the first place. And, before you begin having a go at yourself, that you chose this sensation of reduced energy for a reason. A reason that your higher self may not be ready to reveal to you yet.
So, putting that aside for the moment, ask yourself the question: What have I gained from this supposedly negative experience? The answer may be that you’ve been building energy. After all, if it’s impossible to take someone’s energy, then the energy you didn’t expend being locked up in your house or barely moving then that extra energy must be building up somewhere, if only in your conscious mind.
The answer may also be that you’re clearer about who you want to invest your love in, or that you should never give control of yourself over to another person and to recognize your true power. The possible answers are endless, but you must know that there is a positive aspect to this situation, and because of the intensity of the negative aspect, due to the law of polarity, means that the concentration of the positive aspect (even if it is currently unseen), is intense. Intense and just waiting for you to be ready to uncover it.
