Wheel of Life (2)Personal balance is different for everyone. It has to do with where you are starting and where you want to be…It depends on what your responsibilities (or perceived ones) are and the time and energy you need to allow for that and for simple and more complex pleasures.  It’s not about having equal pieces of the “wheel of life” in the chart above; it’s about giving each piece the time and energy it needs. Most of us have evaluated our success and not meeting goals for the past year and have goals and action plans in mind for this year.  It’s important to take action now.  Are you ready? Now is the time!

Activities that release and relax give you energy and vitality. Stress often builds up in our bodies and minds, leaving us feeling worn down or overly sensitive to stimuli.

 Do you want to feel more positive and energized? Find activities that you like to do- outdoors if possible that include exercise and breathwork.                                     

I love Zumba, a dance-exercise modality and always feel fanastic after taking a class.  A walk on the beach, kayaking in calm waters or bicycling on the Long Beach, Long Island boardwalk are also activities I enjoy that release and relax and give me energy and vitality.

Actively releasing stress from our bodies through physical activity or breath work immediately makes us feel calmer and more in control. Using the power of our minds to focus on more positive thoughts will begin to infuse us with energy and vitality, and we benefit by feeling stronger, more balanced, and ready to engage in our normal activities again.   Spend time releasing tension from your body and mind , and give yourself the gift of energy and vitality.

Balance and Power - Eileen Lichtenstein - HALF We have heard about LOA (Law of Attraction) & visualizing positive outcomes to manifest who and what we want. Most importantly, we need the action/practice component for ultimate productivity powerful positive language to become a happy habit! I’ve been revisiting this aspect of positive thinking and LOA, and am encouraging you to take this challenge and change your low energy phrases to high-energy phrases with your own words.

Here are some examples:

  • “That’s not bad” becomes “That’s quite good.”
  • “No problem” becomes “You’re very welcome, sure, I’ll be happy to!”
  • “That’s bad” becomes “That’s not good.”
  • “Don’t worry” becomes “You’ll be fine.”
  • “Put some effort into it” becomes “Let’s put some energy into it.”
  • “It’s too hard” becomes “It’s not easy.”
  • “I’m sick” becomes “I don’t feel well.”
  • “I forgot” becomes “I didn’t remember.”
  • “I’ve been working hard” becomes “I’ve been working well.”
  • “Don’t cry” becomes “That’s OK..”

This switch is most easily facilitated with a buddy- someone whom you’re often with and agrees to do this for a while with a smile! Do you have some additional phrases to switch-up? Please share them with your buddy this week.

Negative language conveys a poor image to those around us. 

Sometimes it causes conflict and confrontation where none is necessary or desired. The first place to start using positive language is with written material. Once you have developed the knack of writing positively, it will be easier to change your spoken language to present a more positive tone.

Your subconscious picks up on the negative word, no matter what context you use.

Negative phrasing and language often have the following characteristics:

  • tells the recipient what cannot be done.
  • has a subtle tone of blame.
  • includes words like can’t, won’t, unable to, that tell the recipient what the sending agency cannot do
  • does not stress positive actions that would be appropriate, or positive consequences.

Positive phrasing and language have the following qualities:

  • tells the recipient what can be done
  • suggests alternatives and choices available to the recipient
  • sounds helpful and encouraging rather than bureaucratic
  • stresses positive actions and positive consequences that can be anticipated.

Common Negative Language/Phrasing 

If you want to move to more positive communication, the first task is to identify and eliminate common negative phrasing. The following are quite common, and should be avoided whenever possible.

1. Expressions that suggest carelessness:
a) You neglected to specify…
b) You failed to include…
c) You overlooked enclosing…

2. Phrases that suggest the person is lying:
a) You claim that…
b) You say that…
c) You state that…

3. Expressions that imply that the recipient is not too bright: 
a) We cannot see how you…
b) We fail to understand…
c) We are at a loss to know…

4. Demanding phrases that imply coercion/pressure:
a) You should…
b) You ought to…
c) You must…
d) We must ask you to…
e) We must insist…

5. Phrases that might be interpreted as sarcastic or patronizing:
a) No doubt…
b) We will thank you to…
c) You understand, of course…
d) Please respond soon…

 Practice!!

It works  to have someone you are around with often so that you can give each other a “signal” when a negative phrase or word is used.  All the best with this!! As with every new habit – it takes at least 21 days of “getting it right”.

We create abundance by allowing it in-  letting go of resistance in the form of fear, anger and shutting down.    Each area of life must be consciously “opened” : relationshps, career, financial, spiritual, health, recreational.  We can do this by meditating with the mantra

  • “let abundance into the area of…
  • allow $$ to flow freely into my life..
  • allow love into my life and allow me to send it out”.

This process is similar to  prayer, with more personal involvement. We must be very aware and alert to change to notice when the circumstances / conditions are right for abundance:  then it’s up to you to take action!! We must move towards success, it doesn’t “come” to us.

EFT is an additional avenue to opening the gates of allowing.

An example of a set-up phrase with Dr. Carrington’s “choice method”:

“Even though I am struggling with financial issues, I choose to allow abundance to come onto my life.”

Since I’ve been meditating and “tapping” with the art of allowing and abundance,  I’ve seen amazing results! If you would like to explore this with me as your “guide”, I offer 15 minutes complimentary telephone consult. http://www.balanceandpower.com

Did you know that
40% of worrying is about things that will never happen
30% of worrying is over things that can’t be changed
10% of worrying is over health (which only gets worse when you worry)
We spend 92% of our time an energy worrying about things that:
1. We have no control over
2. We can’t possibly change
3. Have misperceived

Make a list of things you worry about. Divide your list intocategories listed at the top of this outline. How do you want to redirect your focus?
What would happen if we channeled this energy and effort contructively rather than adding “fuel to the fire”? Worrying is like steeping on the gas pedal while the car is in neutral: we create a lot of noise, use op energy and don’t go anywhere!

EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques/ Meridian Tapping) works extraordinarily well to overcome anxiety, fear and worry.  more.. http://www.balanceandpower.com/eft.php
