Is “Struggle” your Default Comfort Zone?

“Energy rightly applied and directed will accomplish anything.”~Nellie Bly

A few weeks ago I told my Mom I was changing up my diet routine and, in response, she asked me a couple of interesting questions. The questions were simple but thought-provoking. “Is it sustainable?” and “are you going to spend your whole life counting macros?” When I thought about those questions I realized that most of my life I’d been focused on losing or maintaining my weight loss.

The questions also reminded me of how many clients get so close to their goals then backslide or stall. What happens is that they (we) get stuck in the fear picture of what happens next? Most times the fear is not in our conscious awareness.

Why does this happen? Because just like me, many people spend a good deal of their attention, time, energy and often times, money in effort “trying”. It doesn’t matter if it’s losing weight or some other life-long struggle. There is so much effort going into the perceived problem that there is no vision as to what we would do with our energy once we actually reach our goal.

Think of it this way: When so much energy is poured into a problem, in addition, to constantly trying to figure it out there is the distress and frustration of not getting what we want and not knowing why. What also makes it so challenging is that the day-to-day struggle eventually becomes our default comfort zone.

Where’s your energy?

Here are a couple of questions to explore. What is/are the thing(s) you struggle with? What are the things you worry about or intensely focused on for so long that you can’t even picture life without that intense focus? How much of your energy is being taken up by trying to solve, fix or change things?

For some, it’s energy tied up in searching for a relationship. For others, it’s their weight or how they look and, for others, it’s lack of money or resources. To be clear, none of this is wrong or bad. It doesn’t really matter what it is. All of us have something in our lives we’ve intensely dreamed of, wanted or focused on so much that we throw all of our energy and into it.

Where you place your energy and attention has everything to do with how much energy you have for creating.

Ok, so you’ve put all your energy and attention into “fixing” this thing and can’t seem to get there. Have you ever stopped to look at how much of your creative energy you’re pouring into fixing the problem, getting what you want or changing your circumstance? Have you ever taken a breath, stepped back and looked at how much you’ve identified who you are with the thing you’re in effort worrying about? Most importantly, how much energy would you free up?

What would you do with your energy and who would you be if you actually got what you wanted?

When I ask that question I’m not asking how you would spend your money if you won the lottery, or what would life look like if you were in that perfect relationship. I ask so you can begin to think about what you want to create and where you’d put even a portion of your energy if it was available to you. It’s also important to explore how much of what you focus on has defined your direction.

So, where would you put your energy? What comes next? What’s your vision? Who would you be? How would you (re)define yourself? It’s not that you have to abandon or give up on those things you want. It’s about calling back your energy and, in your mind’s eye, have a vision for beyond the goal once you get there.

What you see is what you get!

Everything we want can happen when we focus our energy in the right places. It’s about creative vision, stepping out of the effort and, in some cases, totally shaking up our world to go beyond our default comfort zone. ~Shine Your Light Debbie

Collective Consciousness

Our Collective Consciousness Creates Our Future…

Collective Consciousness“Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering ‘it will be happier’…”~Alfred Tennyson

As we wind down the last few days of 2017 it’s always a good mindful practice to review and call back any of our energy we have left behind. All futures are created from the present so it’s also important to remember that it is our collective UN-consciousness, along with our actions, that created where we are now.

The UN-Conscious Collective

Did I just hear a collective gasp that we are somehow responsible? The Law of Attraction works both ways my friends. What we are seeing with new, and open, eyes is that which was already there but we didn’t want to see. We were hypnotized by an underlying energy that said, “everything is A-OK, no need to look here.” We also didn’t listen when those who looked at it or experienced something different than what we thought was OK, tried to tell us.

The more we fought seeing and hearing what still needed healing, the more negativity, judgement and, at times rage, added fuel to the fire to give it life. We are seeing the flames we fueled. We are now aware of the division that was never healed so we can, as a collective, heal and return ourselves and the world to wholeness.

The Conscious Collective

So, if the collective UN-conscious created this world we live in, imagine what could be if each of us consciously and intentionally added CONSCIOUSNESS to the collective. The future is ours to create with our collective, and intentional, thoughts and subsequent actions.

As 2017 comes to a close, take time to ‘call back’ any energy you left behind. Forgive any guilt or fear or whatever you are feeling as you bring it back. Release what no longer serves you and resolve to awaken, expand and evolve. We can ALL do better so let’s all BE better.

If you’re looking for a type of New Year’s Resolution try this:

“Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”~ Christian D. Larson

Personally I love that passage and the promises to self. Our collective consciousness begins with awareness of our own vibration and alignment. I would also like to add to the collective the vibration of patience. 2018 will have a bit of a rocky start as more of the energy of unconsciousness releases but trust that things will shift for the better sooner than later.

The world we live in today is a result of our collective consciousness. If we want a different world it’s up to us to create it. Let us begin the New Year by loving ourselves and giving the world the best that is in us. Let our collective consciousness add the vibration of peace and love and healing to the world.~Shine Your Light Debbie
