We have turned a new Gregorian calendar page and emptied out the old for the new destined promises of 2012. In order to allow whatever you desire that is promised for you, there has to be energy around it. James Arthur Ray is famous for say, “Energy goes where attention flows.” Oprah Winfrey mimics the same principal with her words,”I know for sure that what we dwell on is who we become.”
Becoming in 2012 takes energy. Here are three ways to boost your energy(chi):
- Put things in order. Complete or replace dangling needs. If you have not yet finished writing or have a project or issue left over, examine it and then finish or replace it. Don’t get frustrated that your expected time of completion has passed, instead really examine within yourself if this is viable for right now. Ask yourself is this my truest intention? Oftentimes leftover projects are the result of low energy for that particular thing instead of being a lack of time. Check your energy level around that specific need, project or issue, in harmonious intention, and either refresh your completion timeline or replace that one with something new that is “hot” with energy for you.
- Defuzz your vision. Often we know what we feel and want in our lives. The problem many times is that our feelings (energy) and wants are clouded over similar to a cataract eye. Make your 2012 vision 20/20. There are many ways for you to do this and let me suggest two energy chi surge actions that when paired together touch a circuit for completion and realization that equals success. ONE-write your goals down. Make it real by using a pen a paper to describe in exact detail what gives you energy. TWO – create a vision board that is a pictorial representation of where you will direct your energy this year.
Look at my personal vision board for 2012. It is clear how I will direct my energy (chi) this year. This is what I want in 2012: a caring, giving, prosperous spirit; a loving helpmate; travel to Italy or other countries represented by the flags; to complete the Peachtree Road Race in 2012; to sell 800 copies of my book Climb Every Obstacle: Eliminate Your Limits! (afterwhich it goes out of print); to be active in Toastmasters; to practice A+ excellence in all things knowing that I can do it.
My vision board was constructed and laid out according to the Chinese theory of Feng Shui and the Bagua map. My reference is written with clear instructions and simple diagrams which really aided my completion. You will find the Bagua map and Feng Shui at http://pmfs.wordpress.com/2008/01/16/the-bagua/. The main point here is to couple your clearly written and visual goals together to create the energy and action to make everything you desire in 2012 to happen.
- Set up marker stations. Pay attention to your intentions and your energy (chi) every day. As you go throughout the year pause at marker points to celebrate. For me, a marker point would be after I have run 3 miles seven days in a row-I need to celebrate because this is a halfway point in the Peachtree Road Race for example. You set your own marker stations and add more energy fuel for completion by celebrating. Notice that I am very clear and specific about what my marker station is for that specific goal. Do the same for each of your goals with a sensible frequency for celebration that energizes you and reminds you that you have matched a goal marker in your life. Then, move your marker station for that goal to stretch beyond where you are at that moment (include this as a part of your energy celebration) so that you advance forward to successfully completing that goal.
Some of your goals can be completed short-term and others may take more time, but knowing in written and visual form that your goals are attainable as long as your energy attention flows, will renew your completion strength day by day and from marker to marker.
Here’s to your Chi in 2012.
