Taking Responsibility For Energy

I saw this sign a while back and have decided to put it on the soft-board in front of my working space.



There are a few more affirmations that I’d like to put up too, but for now I want to examine this a little closer.

In my desire to be authentic, I can no longer can I pass the buck and blame anyone or anything for my past mistakes or my present state of being.

I look back on my relationships, especially the ones I’ve been hurt in, and realize my part in allowing certain things to happen to me. I know that by bringing in my ‘people-pleasing energy’, I gave some people the right to walk all over me. Was it their fault? Yes, but only some extent.  I cannot absolve myself of my part in these ‘transactions’.  However, I will not spend any energy on feeling guilty. I accept my actions and I spend my energy on becoming aware of my present relationships and how I am transacting in them.

Similarly, I’m examining the kind of energy I bring into my home, my writing,  my blog……

I am response-able.  I am taking responsibility for the energy I bring into every aspect of my life.

PS: You can print this poster out from here or here.

  1. I love the awareness that you brought here BS. Aside from people pleasing, I’m also working on not apologizing too much for my absence or sickness :) Taking responsibility for the energy that we share means giving out ‘more’ life into myself and others :)

    Thank you for the positive energy that you share to us, most especially to me. They’re like Vitamins :)

  4. Corinne!
    This so true ! we carry our own energy into every space we occupy on this earth. Some are glad when we meet them, because they feel energized by our presence. Some times we feel terrible meeting some because they have drained our energy.

    I try to be conscious of the king of energy I carry into my work, my relationships and my family. Most of the time I am happy. Sometimes I feel the need to be more centered and focused. I am still learning and in process !

    Thanks for bringing in a lot of positive energy into my life…. I have grown coz of U ! infact.. I continue to… and thanks for the space ! I enjoy in your company … God bless You!

  5. Dear Corinne:

    This means a lot of responsibility and awareness. Tough, but not impossible.

    Joy always,

  6. EXCELLENT reminder… taking responsibility and not blaming are coming up a lot lately around my house; I am so much more aware when I see my kids ‘blaming’, ” I didn’t do it, she did” or “If she didn’t do this; I wouldn’t do that”. I am trying really hard to seperate the association between taking responsibilty and getting in trouble or being perfect… I try to focus more on accountability and having the courage to speak in truth regardless of outcome. It is a tough one… often times, more so in the past, I’d blame my parents or my partner or my friend or whatever… or whomever… doesn’t work so well, unless standing still while living in yesterday is my objective then it works well.

  10. I totally agree Corinne…
    Taking responsibility for my energy is something I learnt at my yoga class and that for every bit of energy we give out, we receive energy… that the ability to block negative energy from our lives requires concentration, meditation and good thoughts.. :)

  11. Absolutely! Love this and you are so right. It’s amazing the energy that we can put out and the way that our energy is received. Firm believer of this and I love the idea of printing it out. Thanks, Corinne!

  12. Very interesting concept. Like you, I have been looking inward to my own behavior toward myself and the world….and I quite agree. We are and become what we ‘put out there’ into the world. Good post, thanks for the food for thought

  18. I’ve been thinking about just this idea lately, that I am responsible for the energy I put in the world and that everything I do or think or say creates energy. Big responsibility!

  21. I’m with you here Corinne!

    The poster does say it all and we ARE responsible in every way for the positive or the negative energy we bring about in our daily lives. We really can’t put the blame on others or hold them responsible for things that happen in our lives – wish more people would realize this and stop playing the blame game always.

    Thanks for sharing, and wishing you much joy and success in this year. :)
