Energy cycles - what is this?  
Someone please help me. I think I am losing my mind. ^_^

Over the past few weeks I have had intense energy "waves". They are random and can sometimes be very intense. I have at times been dizzy and I can't stand to be near any sort of electrical humming--it resonates with my head and it makes me feel very peculiar.

With the waves can come this sense of euphoria. Sometimes it is so intense I cannot concentrate.

I am sleeping well--with the added caveat that when the cycles get intense enough I sleep much less and seem to require quite a bit less. I am eating well. I am always monitoring my diet and am getting more than enough iron, protein, vitamins, and what-have-you--in fact I eat an absurdly healthy diet. I am of sound physical health and even exercise.

What is going on with me? It's very intense, and the energy isn't something I am used to. My body is starting to feel "lighter". There are times when I look around me and I feel like I'm only partly in the world.

Can anyone help me figure out what this is? Is this normal? What does this all mean?

I am tempted to post this on the forums but I don't know how people will react. ^_^;

PS Case in point - I had a pretty intense one yesterday. I've been up since 5am and went to sleep last night around midnight. My usual rate is about 7-9 hours of sleep....

Nice to meet you too. ^_^

I have SAD too, but I've never had this happen before--and the energy isn't physical. My body is exhausted but my psychic energy levels are high. I'd like to do a transfer but I think all I'm gonna manage today is my usual cup of chai. Omgs.

Yes, that's what my mania and whatnot is. I honestly truly want to sleep but I've got too many ideas rolling around and around in my head, this pressing need to be up and doing something though I physically can't, because there is so much to do. A lot of the time it's a creativity overload, for me. I've been doing well so far this summer but at my lowest point last year, I was only getting 4 hours of sleep, and I was unable to drag myself to work in the morning for being so tired but I just couldn't sleep.

I'm sure it doesn't manifest itself the same way in everyone, but if I was going through what you're going through now, that's what I'd blame it all on.

Yeah, this isn't insomnia or anything like that. I sleep well nine times out of ten, and I can't describe this as mania. It's purely energy--it's not thoughts or emotions or anything like that. It's literally energy surges.

I've had people telling me to look up kundalini awakenings because it sounds like it. It may be so.

I get SAD in winter sometimes, but St John Wort is good for that.

I know, but it screws with your birth control, which was an issue until very recently. Thanks, though.

I wound up buying a light box. I live in the New England. Gods help me why I moved here given the winters...
