I’m in that place where I want to do something different. Some old behavior patterns aren’t serving me anymore. Something that’s a little different for me is that I don’t feel the need to make a bunch of changes to my daily life. Quite honestly just the thought of that overwhelms me. I’m looking to add one regular practice that will help me come to the table more clear headed. This doesn’t mean I won’t change things up down the line. If I feel the need to add or take something away, I will.
When we are ready for change, sometimes we feel like we need to do it all at once. We take on so many new things that we often crash and burn after a short period of time. What would it look like to add one new practice into my daily life? AWE-Relief!
I’m focusing on the small things in front of me right now, because that is what I can manage with what I already have on my plate. I want to add something that is going to help balance my plate, not add weight onto it.
I’ve been reading a lot about energy psychology lately. The book I’m working my way through now is called, The Healing Power of EFT & Energy Psychology by David Feinstein, Donna Eden, and Gary Craig. Donna Eden has some simple practices in the book to help get our energy flowing in a healthy way. She has what she calls a “5-Minute Daily Energy Routine” that sounds perfect for what I’m looking for. It’s one thing I can do starting right now that won’t be adding to my plate, because balanced energy actually ends up providing us with more time because we are wasting less of it on things that aren’t serving us.
My focus isn’t going to be on how long I keep it on my daily calendar. I will do this practice until it feels right not to do it anymore. I’m done with guilting and shaming myself into submission over these kind of things. What I’m focused on now is paying attention to my body, mind, and soul and asking, What can I do now to serve you? I know that the better aligned I am, the more effectively I can serve others.
