Be Consciously Wild



If you have ever noticed situations that make you feel “wild”, harness that power! When I say “wild,” I think of beasts of distant lands with people who are intimately linked with their primal instincts to do what they must do to survive. That is what I think of anyway.


What do you think of when you hear the word wild?


I personally notice my wild side when there is bubbled-up frustration inside me. Fortunately, I have been practicing for many years now on ways that I can put this wild energy to use. And for me, art and writing have been a great way of expressing my wild energy in a constructive and creative way. There are a multitude of ways to express this energy though. Art, writing, music, cooking, dancing, cleaning, exercising, and even breathing to name just a few. The trick here is noticing the wild energy before it “explodes”. This takes practice. It starts with personal awareness.


Here are a few tips you can use to gain full awareness of your wild energies:


1) To start, in any moment of frustration, anger, intense energy, or emotion that you deem “wild”, stop what you are doing immediately. Take a deep breath, and then visualize your situation from an observer’s point of view. This will take you from a reactive state into a conscious observer state.

2) Also, reflect on previous episodes in your life when you “lost control” and said something you did not mean or acted out in a wild manner. Notice what triggered you and be vigilant for instances in your current life that may trigger you again.

3) Lastly, journal about what you feel. Notice the “beast” in your body. Where does your wild side reside?


These tips will help you connect with yourself at a conscious level allowing for more logical and productive responses to external stimuli that may cause frustration or irritability. Ultimately, with practice, this wild energy can be harnessed into massively productive energy that may then be used as fuel toward holistic successes in life. If you are anyone who has anger, frustration, or irritability; cultivating a relationship with your wild side can help you become the best version of yourself. The version of you that can step back in moments of high stress or irritability to fluidly direct that energy toward good.


Transforming this wild reactive energy is a difficult task for many, including myself. Luckily, life has a multitude of opportunities to learn and connect with our wild side. With intimate knowledge of our intense and wild energy we may eventually tame it and then direct it toward an optimal outcome. A wildly conscious outcome of peace and productivity.


Well, hope you enjoyed this wild post :) What I want you to take from this is that all emotions and energetic sensations in the body, especially those that are intense or “wild” have enormous potential to assist you in creating vast expanses of beauty in your life. It takes practice to tame the beast, but once tamed, the possibilities are endless.


Take care of the beast within!


Live a conscious life!


Till next time!
