This one is for the energy sensitive gym crew.
With Mars in Aries, we are feeling that call to physical activity and embodying our power in the body. As those of you who have been tuning in with the astrology reports know, this season is all about celebrating our bodies, exploring their potential, and grounding our soul happily and healthily here in them.
One of the main ways we are able to do this is by going to the gym.
Working out is a wonderful way to process and shift our own energy each day. It helps us get and keep our vibration lifted. It helps energize us. Our souls flow in part through our blood. Getting a good pump and raising the heartrate in cardio is a really great way to come into tune with yourself.
Though, for some of us in the energy sensitive crew, it can also be unexpectedly exhausting.
Once I got back into my body post-cancer *you can see my scar in the linked video* one of the very first big clear strong soul messages I heard was, “Get to the gym. Move your body.” That little voice encouraged me, day by day, to go from being a broken person who was just recovering from cancer, who had always been told she was ‘not an athlete’ from childhood into someone that was hanging out squatting racks with the lads. I could push heavy weight, and becoming that physically strong helped me find my soul, process my pain, and become myself.
The gym was home.
In my gym journey, what was once my sanctuary became a major drain point. This is what I talk about in the video linked with this article. I went from being charged up and feeling powerful after the gym to being womp womp. Exhausted. I stopped seeing gains. It turned out that as I activated my energy body, my experience changed. The gym is a place people go to blow off steam, process, and shift their energy. As my auric field turned on and got bigger and bigger (and I had yet to figure out that was happening), I became more sensitive. I started feeling and bringing in the energy that the people around me were there dropping. I found myself recoiling. I felt more tired. Moody. I stopped seeing gains.
**I thought it was something wrong with me.
So eventually, I stopped going.**
At the time I had no clue about energy or the aura and that it could work this way. As I came into my knowledge, I put it all together and thought wow. Ok. I was just becoming more aware of and able to feel all the energy being processed around me. I never had to stop. I just needed to figure my auric field out.
Then I thought, this is something I have to talk about.
Check out this quick video to see what I have to say.

The body, soul, energy awareness connection is a central point of my teachings. I have reworked my school in my ‘year off’ to be specifically oriented in this connection. Check out my programs and remember to subscribe to this blog. Though there is not ‘much’ here right now about this, it is because I am just coming off of a sojourn and re-design. This is the theme of the summer (and beyond).
