I once coached a woman who had an odd habit: she would say “yes,” while shaking her head no. I pointed this out to her, but she did not believe me. So I took the compact from my purse and held up the mirror and asked her to say “yes” as enthusiastically as she could. As she did, her head turned from side-to-side. “Am I really doing THAT??” she asked in horror, and I nodded. “And it likely explains why things are twice as hard for you as they have to be,” I said.
Conscious creating kicks into high gear when we become aware of the connection between what we think, what we say, but most importantly–how we feel. If there is alignment between these three things, energy flows easily. You can tell when this is true because your day flows easily. You make all the traffic lights without speeding or cutting someone else off on your way to work. The data you need for your project comes in perfectly the first time. Your spouse makes dinner without you having to ask. You’re smiling most, if not all of the day, and you feel fine–you have plenty of energy for everyone and everything. Easy.
Here are 7 questions that will help you see where you might be shutting down or pinching off your energy flow by contradicting yourself.
If you said yes to any of these questions, chances are good you’re not taking advantage of the easy freedom Fullistic® flow provides.
Fullistic® flow consists of three parts:
So first–decide how you want to feel today. Pick a word that feels really good. Happy? Healthy? Funny? Relaxed? This sets the energetic stage for ease and flow. Then, regardless of the word you chose, get moving. Sitting like a slug in a chair all day is the energetic equivalent of having a fabulous sports car in the garage and never driving it. Energy begets energy, so if your desire is to get some flowing, get up at least once per hour.
Next, notice your thoughts. Remember that 80% of what we think is negative, and every thought generates an emotion (E-Motion; energy in motion) in our physical bodies. You are able to feel what you think. Try this experiment: Close your eyes and say the word “No!” vigorously. See where you feel it in your body–many people in my workshops report feeling it in their gut, their chest or their head, but you might feel it someplace else. Then try saying “Yes!” and see where that resonates. You now know your personal energetic signals, so pay attention to them.
Assuming that you’re moving around during the day, if you’re feeling tired, achy or dense, it’s probably because you’re beating yourself up with negative thoughts. You can either a) ignore these; b) question them with something as simple as “Really?” (see my blog post on this) or c) do a 180-degree flip on them and turn them into positives.
Finally, pay attention to the words you are using. When we speak, we are broadcasting what we want into the universal field–think of planting seeds in exceptionally fertile ground. Make sure your words are neutral or positive, and that they align with your intention for the day.
So the next time you’re having a rough day, remember: life can be easy; we make it hard. Ease into greater freedom and flow with the ideas above, and know that you can always use your copy of “Feathers: 50 Things You Can Do to Lighten Up and Set Yourself Free” by simply asking, “Which feather will help me lighten up now?” and opening the book at random. Take 50 seconds to read the page(s) before you, knowing that as you do, you’ve stopped flowing energy to what you don’t want, allowing it to flow naturally towards what you do.
Wishing you an easy day and week!
