If one was in a position where they spend a lot of time feeling drained, they might end up looking into what they eat. Along with this, they could take the time to see if they are getting enough sleep.
The Logical Approach
One way of looking at this would be to say that this is the kind of thing that most people would do. After all, what one eats and the amount of sleep they get plays a big part in how much energy they have.
What one could then find is that they don’t eat the right food, or that they don’t eat enough. In addition to this, they could see that they don’t get enough sleep, or that they have days when they stay up too late.
Alternatively, the main thing that is bothering them at this point in their life could be the amount of anxiety they experience. It is then going to be a challenge for them to settle into their body and to feel at ease.
What one could find is that they spend a lot of time in their head, and this is going to cause them to disconnect from how they feel. Consequently, one is unlikely to feel like a whole human being.
When they are experiencing life in this way, it could be as if their head is not connected to their body. There is going to be where they are positioned and then there will be another part of them that is down below.
It can seem as though they are floating in the air, and it is then not going to be possible for them to feel as though they are connected to the earth. They will feel ungrounded and out of touch with reality.
The Next Step
If they were to reach out for external support, they could be told that they need to change what is taking place in their mind. It will then be clear that their thoughts are the problem, and once this changes, they will begin to settle down.
One will then need to observe what is taking place in their mind and to change the thoughts that are causing them to experience life in this way. Another part of this can be for them to change their behaviour.
And when one does disconnect from their body, it can cause them to lose touch with their true needs and feelings. They can then end up feeling confused and unaware of what they want or need.
This could then set them up to agree to do things that they don’t really want to do and to behave in ways that go against their true nature. Pleasing others is then going to be the norm and this is going to cause them to suffer even more.
One is then not going to come across as someone who is confident and they might not feel good about themselves either. Other people could see them as someone who doesn’t stand their ground.
So though experiencing life in this way, there is a strong chance that they will end up coming into contact with people who are not right for them. It is then going to be vital for them to find a way change their life.
If one had all of these problems, it doesn’t mean that they would take the time to see if they are all connected. The reasons for this is that if they were to speak to their doctor, for instance, they might be told that there are a number of factors involved.
And, there is the chance that this is the case; it will then be necessary for them to face each problem head on. Through getting more sleep, eating better, changing what takes place in their mind, there life may start to change.
However, what one may find is that all of these problems are connected; there will be different branches, but they will all be connected to the same tree. This could be something they realise after they have had massage or been in water.
It will then be clear that their body is very sensitive, and this is then why they are experiencing all these problems. As a result of this, it is not going to be enough for them to just eat better, get more sleep, or to change what is taking place in their mind.
Highly Sensitive Body
In order for them to settle into their body and to feel like a whole human being, they will need to settle their body down. As their body is extremely sensitive, it won’t take a lot for them to feel overwhelmed.
Their nervous system is not going to be able to handle a lot of stimulation, and this is why their environment has such a big effect on them. But now that they know what is going on, they can do something about it.
When their nerves are settled, they might feel as though they can do anything, but when this is not the case, it could be a challenge just for them to get out of bed. What one can do is to become aware of the things that drain them, and then to see what they can do about these things.
Spending time in water and having massages, as they may know, will also have a positive effect on their wellbeing. If they are carrying trauma, this is going to make it harder for them to handle life.
One may have been abused and/or neglected during their younger years, and this would have had a big effect on their nervous system. Thus, through working with a therapist or a healer, for instance, this part of them can get out of survival mode.
