Even if you’re a chatterbox like me, the truth is that your energy speaks louder than your words, so under- standing the power of your energy and thoughts is important. Many people take it for granted—they think that if they say and do all the right things, people will like them. But we all pick up on each other’s energy; even if it happens only on a subconscious level, we can tell when someone’s words or actions don’t reflect their energy. It’s important to accept the power of your thoughts and feelings in order to learn how to leave a positive and powerful energy impression.

Before you enter any environment where you’ll be sharing your energy with others, use the following exercise for clearing your energy field and enhancing your magnetism.

Start by taking a deep, full breath, expanding your diaphragm, and on the exhale, release the breath while your diaphragm contracts. Continue this cycle of deep breathing as you clear your mind and set positive intentions. Say to yourself, “I choose to remove any negative energy I’ve been holding onto. I choose to retrieve all the positive energy around me and within me. My intention is to share my positive energy with the world.” With your breath and positive intentions, you can completely shift your mood and set yourself up to share your greatness with everyone you meet.

Leaving a positive energy impression will serve you in many ways. @GabbyBernstein

While it can greatly help you in connecting with others, the most important benefit is that you will feel a greater sense of support and life-flow. This principle will help you clear your energy before you enter a new situation so that you can always leave a positive impression.

Practice this the next time you enter a room. Whether you’re meeting with someone you know very well or with a complete stranger, simply test-drive this exercise so you can access it at all times.
