Hello, I am new to the idea of noetic science, although without realizing it, I have been practicing its ideas for years – the ideas of intention, using energy, etc. I’m very curious about this field, and I want to learn more about it by bringing my own personal experiences to it. The reason for this thread is that I’ve been experiencing a “weird phenomenon” for the last month. Here's my situation.
Last month I was sick for about three weeks, which is very unusual for me. Nothing major, just a simple head cold that would not go away (partly because of the stress of the holidays and I didn't take enough time to sufficiently rest). Since then, I’ve been very “scatterbrained.” I’ll be in a conversation with someone and my mind’s energy will not stay in one place. Even as I now type, my mind/energy does not want to focus or be present, and I have to make a conscious effort to focus my energy onto a single task. I have set intentions to help me focus, but still feel like I have a nervous/busy/distracting energy around my heart and mind. I have started practicing yoga and meditation regularly again these past few weeks as I’ve allowed myself to get away from practice all together. I don’t have a history of ADD, and I can’t remember the last time I’ve experienced something significant like this– although every once in a while I will be a little out of balance. Is there a phenomenon occurring around me that is causing all of this distraction? I notice that this unbalanced feeling occurs more while I’m at work, and not as much at home. I don’t have any major stressors on my job, and in fact I’m still performing well and I enjoy my job and the people I work with.
Does anyone have any ideas on what is occurring and how I can “change” it to bring myself back into balance? Am I sensing something that I am not aware of? If so, how do I investigate this energy so that I can bring balance back into my work-life? Thanks!
