I wonder.... when you show up in life, just as you did this morning; maybe as you've been going about your day , as you maybe went into your place of work... did you take responsibility for just how you showed up?
I'm not talking about what you were wearing or if you'd combed your hair... although both of these surface appearances are an outside manifestation of what's going on inside...
That's really what I'm getting at here.
It's the inside job I'm talking about, as that's where it all starts.
We have a choice every moment of every day. We have RESPONSIBILITY - as in we have the ability to choose our response..... in every moment, in every interaction with others, in every situation.
I'd like to invite you now to take a moment to check in with your own energy.
Simply stop what you're doing and drop into your body ( yes, I know you were probably time traveling - thinking about the past or future and not being totally present , even though you're reading this blog right?)
So feel how it feels to be you, in your energy, in your body right now.......
Is it high, is it light, do you feel positive and happy?
Or is it low, heavy, negative and unhappy?
Noticing this is the first step to taking responsibility.
If your energy isn't where you want it to be- you can change it, you can take responsibility and do something about it right now.
Here's the thing:
For those of you who subscribe to my newsletter, you will have read about two very inspiring men who I was working alongside earlier this week. Andy McMenemy and Andy Reid. Both of whom choose to take responsibility daily for the energy with which they show up to life and choose a positive mindset. ( I'd urge you to read about it here )
You too can do the same. You choose you can charge yourself up or run your self down. Its all in the way you think, feel and then act.
As you may have heard me say before. Thoughts become things.
You have a thought, you attach and emotion ( energy in motion) to it - Good feelings or bad feelings and then you act accordingly - as in your free flowing behaviour will then demonstrate and play out the energy choices you've made on the inside. Be that an electrical thunderbolt or a dead battery.
Each and every one of us has an awesome power within us. We are all truly limitless, are you choosing to transmit your awesomeness out into the World?
I know I can hear some of you saying... but you don't know about my life Lisa... I have challenges, I feel stuck, I can't, I don't know how.
I do understand , at times life can be exhausting. It does take a huge amount of responsibility to show up with empowering, uplifting and positive energy.
What's the alternative?
What would you rather have?
If you ever doubt the old saying " What the mind conceives, the body can achieve" take a long hard look at my newsletter. I'm certain you'll be inspired.
Know that at the base of it, all of those words that are rambling around your head are simply words until you give them meaning. YOU choose that meaning. You choose if you attach LOVE or FEAR to those words. If you find that there old FEAR word creeping in with all of it's associated emotions, then ask yourself... If I were taking responsibility, If I loved myself enough... what would I change in my thought pattern right now to serve myself a great big helping of LOVE.
If you need a hand, I'll be there, right by your side. Imagine I'm there reminding you to ask " What would love do right now" If your energy is low, get up, move around, by moving our body we change the pattern of the thoughts we're running, look up to the sky ( it really works), take a deep breath. Dance, sing, smile ( if you smile repeatedly you can fool your body into doing it for real and release all of those happy energy hormones around your body) Pick up the phone to someone who really lifts your energy. Hug someone you love.
Wake up that sparkling, brightness!
Don't loose sight of your intention. Check inside your heart to see if the path you are traveling fits with your true hopes and aspirations. If not take action, take control, take responsibility and steer your life back on course.
