Where are you now?
How do you feel where you are?
Who are you where you are?
Have you ever paid attention to how places affect how you show up, on your identity?
Think about the places where you live and work. Are there places where it’s easy to get things done and others where you struggle? Places when you are smart and others where your brain is sluggish?
Is there a place where you feel energized while others drag every drop of energy out of you?
A place is more than what you see.
A place has its own stories. It has its own energy. Its own consciousness.
A consciousness shaped, little by little, by the lives and stories that happened in and through it.
That makes the energy of the place where you are stronger than yours.
You should never underestimate the power and influence that the environment has over you.
In 1936, psychologist Kurt Lewin wrote that “Behavior is a function of the Person in their Environment“. We may resist for a while, but over time the environment will shape our behaviours.
So, if you don’t feel energized where you are. If you feel you’re not the real you. Then maybe, you need to tune in and get out to clear your energy.
