Bracing For Impact (in a Crazy, Scary World of Energy)

Does this sound familiar – coming home, having a cuppa, a beer or a joint, a bit of chocolate, feet up in front of the tele to ‘wind down’ from the day? Or a yoga session followed by a bath with scented oils? Or off into one’s room with the door closed, to shut out the family and the world and do your own thing? Ah… sanctuary from the madness and demands!

You know how it goes; a world of humans expressing their emotions and thoughts, like 7 billion devices blasting out their waves at full volume…

So, what do we do? When we go out we contract away from this crazy energy of the world, protect ourselves in a cocoon or behind a ‘suit of armour’, on high alert all day as we go about our business in the danger zone.

Often our shoulders are hunched, arms in front of us, necks stretched forwards, eyes either down or looking around nervously – the body language of wariness. We often get done what we have to do as fast as possible, without a lot of loving focus. Then we come home to our house or our room, let down our protection, breathe a sigh of relief and reward ourselves with something relaxing. Got through another day! Safe till tomorrow morning…

Next day dawns and we ‘brace for impact’ to go out into the world again.

What is it about the world that makes us feel on edge and want to escape from it? What is it about our ‘sanctuaries’ and their pleasures that make us feel safe and relaxed?

Is it possible that this distinction between the outside world and our sanctuaries is an illusion?

Is it possible that when we are home in our rooms, we behave differently towards ourselves and our things? I know I have done this for a long time, putting a level of care into myself and my home that the majority of people are not putting into the world ‘out there’. You could say that I leave a concentrated loving imprint in my own space. Then when I come home to it, I feel it still there, all the more noticeable in contrast with the madness ‘outside’. It helps me come back to myself, open up, relax, recover from the day. It’s great to confirm the divinity within me that can be so easily imprinted into my surroundings when I’m not contracted, but open, loving and still.

And it confirms that everything is energy and everything is because of energy. It’s not so much what we’ve done in our sanctuaries but how we’ve been while we were doing it that leaves perceptible energy imprints. As it does everywhere.

Everything is energy, energy is always moving, and it doesn’t stop at piffling boundaries like walls (which are made of matter which is made of energy). Actually the whole 7 billion persons-worth of human mental/emotional energy of the world ‘out there’ is constantly passing through our sanctuaries and our bodies, except that we think it isn’t because we’re ‘safely at home’, believing it to be separate.

Could it be that we feel so good in our rooms not just because of the loving imprint we’ve cultivated there, but because we are not letting ourselves feel that, all being energy, the energy of all humanity is still passing through us even when we are in our comfortable sanctuaries?

So here’s the big question: if we feel and know about energy and the imprints we leave, and how our love can change our surroundings, why aren’t we not bracing and contracting but instead imprinting our best level of openness, love and stillness everywhere we go?

What a difference that would make in the world: no more need to brace for impact or run to our sanctuaries, because we’d be at home all the time, everywhere!

  1. Twice a day, Monday to Friday I get to observe the condensed dissatisfaction of the people on their way to and from work on the Tube. In the morning they run because they are late and in the evening they run to get away as fast a possible. I in-joy being myself on the Tube and what about the ripples I create and the effect on others?

    1. Yeh it’s really sad how few people actually enjoy and love their lives, I reckon if we took statistics on this it would be shocking, why not instead cherish everything we have and every opportunity life provides us?

  2. ” but instead imprinting our best level of openness, love and stillness everywhere we go? ” Yes Dianne what you say and explained is so true and its something I have been practising when walking in the ” out side world ” and its quite a surprise for people to feel and see me thus , especially surprising for kids.

  3. “It’s not so much what we’ve done in our sanctuaries but how we’ve been while we were doing it that leaves perceptible energy imprints. As it does everywhere.” Quality over quantity every time – something I am still learning.

  4. The world can be crazy and scary. We can either come home and retreat or come home to a supportive sacred space that allows us to process the day and to live more of who we are. For what purpose do we use the home – consolidating, or retreating?

  5. It’s only when I have made myself separate from the world that i come home and want to put my feet up so to speak. It is definitely a case of swimming in the sea and not getting wet.

  6. To come home to a house that supports and clears my family and I to truly be ourselves is a constant refinement and commitment knowing that the loving imprints I make within the home sets the foundation for us to go out into the world.

  7. Ahhhh, imagine feeling like you were at home everywhere you went!! It is interesting to notice the difference your intention makes on space.,..whether it be to escape, or to support you back to yourself. It can be very tangible.

  8. This resonates with me
    “You know how it goes; a world of humans expressing their emotions and thoughts, like 7 billion devices blasting out their waves at full volume…”
    It is full on out there in society, I feel that we have lost the plot completely and currently anything goes. I felt this recently while in a big city there were so many people and everyone was trying to avoid bumping into someone, avoiding eye contact, intent on their phones. Everyone seemed to be in such a hurry they seemed spaced out and checked out. No one has time for anyone anymore and this was a Sunday where you would think that people would take it a bit easier, but it was like any other day of the week. We miss out on so much when we just rush past each other. I tried to catch people’s eyes and when I did and smiled; I did get a smile back especially from older women and it was lovely. Someone’s genuine smile brightens up any day.

  9. I think I’ve read this blog before Dianne, but perhaps I never truly felt consequences of what you say until today. For now it’s so clear to me that the walls and partitions we think exist, don’t at all. There is no divide with energy, no sanctuary except the one we think is real in our head. We can dream up all these intricate rules about one thing being safer than the next, but it has nothing to do with the energetic facts. When we are in this world we get all of it – so life is down to how we are with it 24/7, every minute, every hour – it’s this that determines our quality of life.

  10. And does the warmth of feeling the return to being ‘at home’ remind us that we know deep within us that we long to return to where we came from?

  11. So much of what we do doesn’t make sense and yet we put our heads down and just get on with it. We have home, work, the weekend, the weekday, the morning, the afternoon and the list goes on. We have created points that make it seem that we are somewhere different and things aren’t the same. We create a perception that everything isn’t connected and so we can come home and get away from the world, even though the world is actually still there in the same way and doesn’t stay outside our front door. We can all feel everything and the only way we don’t is in our perception. In other words we can’t stop feeling we can only create a perception that says that we can’t and then live that perception until we think it’s true. If we have a genuine look around you can see that behind this perception things don’t look great at all and yet the wheels keep turning. Make life about energy again and you see the world for what it is and know that you can hold your space wherever and whenever you choose and so no more need to shut the world out as you aren’t in it, you are part of the movement that brings this all clear and true again.

    1. This comment really brings home the key points of the blog, especially the bit where you say ‘We have created points that make it seem that we are somewhere different and things aren’t the same.’

      1. You can appreciate in this how amazing we are and how powerful things are, in that we can create an entire perception called life as we know it and live it as though it is the only thing there is. Yet as we walk around the entire world is reflecting more to us all the time and yet we can have blinkers on and refuse to see it but as we have said you can not but feel it, all the time.

  12. It is definitely true, we live in a world that does not support the nature of who we are and in fact it does totally the opposite, so our default program is to live in protection when outside our comfort zones, but this comes at the expense of our health and well being, the hardening of our bodies and the shut down of our hearts. It is only through the reconnection to the quality within that we can truly feel protected as absolutely nothing stands to power of living from an open heart.

  13. I have been hearing the word bracing a bit lately and considering why we do it. When we react to the world and feel overwhelmed or unsure of what will happen next, there is a tensing in the body. This affects the whole way we hold and move our body and leads to the medications we need to temporarily relieve the tension.

  14. Dianne – I have certainly set up the safety and security of home vs the outside world. But as you share here – everything is energy first, and at all times humanity is passing through us, no matter where we are. So what an opportunity to be as open as we can as often as we can, no matter what our surroundings. After all, what have we got to lose?

  15. I know that feeling of relief when I get home and close my front door. Allowing myself to feel at home everywhere I go without the guard or brace…now that would be something.

  16. Perhaps it is possible to be aware of the movements that are all around without getting caught up in them, maybe this is the key to holding oneself amongst the intensities of life – to be aware but not to be absorbed…

  17. Yes I can relate to coming home and feeling held by the loving imprints in my home, but as you say Dianne we can feel the same at home as we do everywhere… we can be held in the world without feeling the need to protect ourselves. Thank you for this beautiful reminder Dianne.

  18. I love what you have shared Dianne, that even in our sanctuaries the energy we are trying to escape from is flowing through us all of the time, as there are no boundaries, when we connect to our home within, we can be like the snail and take our home with us wherever we go.

  19. ‘Is it possible that this distinction between the outside world and our sanctuaries is an illusion?’ A profound question to have asked. In the constant feeling of having to be ‘on’ only to come home so we can ‘switch off’ means there is no richness to life, simply an existence without true purpose and connection. If we were to be ‘on’ in the home as well as outside it, it would mean a daily commitment to purpose, to understanding energy, to know that everything is everything, to being aware of our responsibility in what we are reflecting out to each other – ultimately living to the potential of who we really are.

  20. ” Actually the whole 7 billion persons-worth of human mental/emotional energy of the world ‘out there’ is constantly passing through our sanctuaries and our bodies, except that we think it isn’t because we’re ‘safely at home’, believing it to be separate. ”
    When I read this I was a bit overwhelmed , and I read it a few more times and I was thinking 7 billion peoples worth of lived energy is flowing through ” little old me “. constantly like every 24 hours. Wow !!!!. I had to sit down and ponder on this a while and while I was pondering 7 billion people were getting the energy of my pondering, that’s amazing. As you can imagine, I had to sit for another while.
    So that says to me I must be incredibly energetically powerful. WOW !!

  21. What if all this could simply be solved by reading energy, when we read energy and we read what is really going on we have a much greater understanding of the world and the people around us and with that clarity there’s no need to brace, retract or hide. It’s avoiding what we’re seeing and reading that creates the problems.

  22. ‘…no more need to brace for impact or run to our sanctuaries, because we’d be at home all the time, everywhere!’ This is a beautiful way to be. I know I brace for impact a lot but I can start practising in my home and this morning I woke up and felt how there are no barriers and in my home I can feel the rest of the block and though I live alone, we are never alone.

  23. Appreciating how much we are really aware of and allowing our reading of situations to inform our movements is key, that is, continually deepening our relationship with ourselves and our inner knowing and trusting our connection to multidimensonality.

  24. When we see parts of our lives as separate to any other we are not only dropping our energetic quality but ultimately shutting down who we are in the process. Learning to appreciate and explore our energetic imprints and how everything then affects everything else be it our homes, workplace or down by the beach we begin to see just how awesome it is to walk, express and live in a way where we share ourselves and our movements equally everywhere and the ripple affect we have when we move in this way. It is incredible to feel.

  25. I’ve noticed that I can get home and just carry on with doing. Being in constant motion is just another form of numbing. It can be quite nice to take a moment’s pause to reflect on the day, how I am, the quality in which I’m doing things, feel what is needed next and not just motor ahead.
