The Energy in Your Life


I’ve found that there’s nothing more empowering than learning to take responsibility and accountability for your life. It wasn’t the most exciting or comfortable part of my journey but it was certainly necessary in order to grow. It was actually one of the first steps I had to take in order to be able to not only eventually overcome depression but change my mindset. I didn’t realize that by trying to distance myself from blame and responsibility I was also losing the power I had over my own life. By learning to take responsibility going forward, I was able to put myself in a position of power in my life.

I wanted to share a video with you that takes this a step further. Not only do we need to be responsible for ourselves we are also responsible for who we surround ourselves with! It reminds me of when I was growing up and was taught to be careful who my friends were. I always thought it was a caution of “guilty by association”. It’s only now that I realize that it was deeper than that. It’s about surrounding yourself with people who are on the same wavelength as you. The ones who have similar values and core beliefs. The ones who are not only quick to ground you but swift to empower you. The ones who might not agree with you but believe in you. The ones who want to see you succeed. The ones who want what’s best for you even if it doesn’t match their hope or expectation of you. The ones who would rather watch you soar than make you sink. Oprah talks about clearing people out of her life whose energy wasn’t supportive of the energy she brings into the world. It sounds harsh but there’s no point in playing with

Oprah talks about clearing people out of her life whose energy wasn’t supportive of the energy she brings into the world. It sounds harsh but there’s no point in playing with energy that isn’t compatible with yours. It’s like trying to plug an American appliance into a European outlet. The appliance is going to get fried because the current isn’t the same. Your inner circle should be made up of those whose current is compatible with yours.Β Today I wanted to pass on this reminder to be mindful not only of the energy you bring into the world but the energy you surround yourself with. Thank you for the positive energy you bring to my blog and into the world around you. Keep shining like the bright light you are!


I open up in further detail about the importance and process of accepting responsibility for all areas of my life in my book. If this is something you’re wanting to work on and are looking to do for yourself, you might want to check out a sample of my book and see if it feels like a good fit. Here you can find details and read a sample on Smashwords or Amazon before purchasing.

What are your thoughts on today’s topic? Do you need to do a clearing of the energy in your inner circle? Is this something you needed to hear today? Is this an uncomfortable truth you needed to approach? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!Β

  1. Excellent blog. This applied to career too. I recently made a change after 12 years of realizing it was the negative energy & environment, not the job per se, that was getting to me.

    Thank you!

    1. I’m so glad you found this timely encouragement. Sometimes it can be. Something I try to do is pay attention to the first feeling I get when I meet someone. Not what I think, not judgements, but that feeling we pick up on. I’ve found it to be a rare occasion that the initial feeling is wrong. In the words of Maya Angelou, believe someone when they show you who they are the first time. I’m very selective of how and who I spend my time with. There’s nothing more precious to me. It can’t be bought, returned, or extended. Sending you lots of love! ❀

How do you know if someone is there to be a true friend or not? πŸ™‚ Is it if you ask for help and they can always help in some way? Lots of love to lovely you 😘

      2. My pleasure. I guess it depends on what a true friend looks like to you. I’d like to encourage you to list the qualities you feel a true friend of yours would have and then see if the actions of those in your life align with it. What about someone who offers help without you asking? Or someone who can’t help when you ask but is there for you in the capacity they’re able to be? Just food for thought based on your question πŸ’–

  4. This is great Niki. I’ve learned it’s best to keep myself surrounded by positive energy, as much as I can. Negativity saps me and brings me down. I love your description of the outlets not connecting. Hope you’re doing well! 🌸

  5. I’ve always kept my circles tight. I think intuitively as I worked on myself I could better see others. I have family who I love but on social media I monitor my exposure and interactions because they are energy suckers. Now we don’t just physically have to be in close proximity but technology makes us at times too close. Holidays and Birthdays are all some people get but still with boundaries.

    1. I agree! I’ve found myself having to be careful of the blogs I visit because I’ve noticed feeling drained and figured out it was the energy of it. Some of them were just heavy and energy sucking so I’m much more selective of the blogs I spend time on. That’s a great thing to bring up. Energy isn’t limited to physical presence… Glad you are so clear with your healthy boundaries and are aware of the energy that surrounds you ❀
