Do you feel that you have enough energy
to get you through the day?
Do you drink coffee and/or energy drinks for a pick me up?
How much sugar is in your coffee or energy drink?
How is your energy about an hour or two after the caffeine injection?
Can you sleep after you had an energy drink in the afternoon?
What lowers our Energy?
Feeling depressed, fearful, angry, frustrated, irritated
Thoughts of what we don’t want, despair, revenge, complaining, worry
Not taking time to connect with Source Energy
Refined foods i.e. sugar and flour, drugs, not enough sleep, alcohol, coffee, sedentary lifestyle
Caffeine and refined food, especially white sugar and flour, raise our level of energy very fast and it also drops very fast leaving us feeling worse in constant need for more – ‘addicted’ to it. This can also lead to a low blood sugar/hypoglycaemia if we continue with this lifestyle. It happened to me when I was pregnant with my oldest son. Read my story at the end of this post.
According to Annette Noontil in her book:
“The Body is the Barometer of the Soul”
Tiredness can be related to:
- Not planning and running out of time
- Being a perfectionist
- Out-flowing your wisdom. Giving too much without learning from it
- Doing something or not doing something, so it is an escape
- Not re-grouping or summing up what you have learned
- Not knowing how to communicate
Our feelings tell us whether we are in alignment with, inspired, universal energy,
Our thoughts affect how we are feeling. When we are feeling good we have energy.
We can choose better feeling thoughts.
When we connect with Source Energy through meditation, prayer and when our thoughts are in alignment with our inner being, we can access Universal Energy
When we feed our body with nourishing food and beverages we have more energy.

I was about two month pregnant, when I couldn’t sleep, had itchy spots all over my body and I felt like I was close to a nervous breakdown. The medicine from the doctor and specialist only supplied mild and temporary relief.
Being desperate I went to a naturopath, cringing at the money I had to spend for the consultation. She looked into my eyes and told me that my adrenal glands were exhausted and that I have a low blood sugar/hypoglycemia problem.
One of her suggestions was a good multi-vitamin and she gave me two sheets of paper; one with all the food I could eat (unrefined/whole grains, fruit and vegetables, etc.) and one with the food I should avoid. Guess which one was the food I ate the most of up until then … yes, I had to change my diet. And I did, since I wanted a healthy pregnancy and baby, especially since I already had lost one a couple of years ago.
Since then I made lots of changes to my lifestyle and read hundreds of books on health, especially the holistic approach. I used over the counter multi-vitamins and in my 40’s (having three sons) I bought the best that I could find, since by then, I had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (which I didn’t know). Even though I felt a bit better, my health started to improve when I started using pharmaceutical grade nutritional supplements, including co-enzyme Q10 and grape seed extract. In the last five years I cut back on the vitamins and started using Coconut oil as much as my budget allows.
One change took a long time – coffee. Even though I ended up drinking weak coffee, I was still ‘addicted’ to it. What helped me with loosing my interest in coffee was a healthy energy drink made from teas with antioxidants, malate and herbs, i.e. Rhodiola. This also helps balancing my mood. I do know the difference if I have a coffee instead of half a cup of the energy drink. Some days I feel I need a whole cup.
