Microcosmic Energy Shifts This time of year, more than at any other, you're probably considering making an energy shift that will allow you to accomplish some quantifiable goal.
Completion is not required The "big secret" about -- or perhaps we'll call it an often-overlooked aspect of -- creating an effective energy shift is that completion is not required.
Completion often comes after a series of similar -- smaller -- actions.
As you fuel your initial commitment, keep in mind that:
- Just starting the path is being on the path.
- Just taking the first action creates the energy that propels all the other "steps"
Small, sustainable, serial actions Most long-term goals and intentions for conscious, willful, creative change can be broken down into a series of repetitive actions.
These action steps are:
- small choices in thought and behavior
- simple behaviors, repeated concurrently
- a bread-crumb trail of multiple potential successes
Many small successes reinforce Self-esteem, which energizes all positive changes and life (spirit) -style choices.
The momentum of the Beginning levels quickly to a plateau of daily practices.
Concrete examples: Let's say you want to lose thirty pounds -- you shift into the frequency of that long-term success the very first time you take actions on your new intentions.
Let's say the required repetitive action is something like exercising thirty minutes a day -- the vibration you need to tune into is reached the first day you show up for that exercise.
You experience the same energy losing thirty pounds as you do when you lose one pound.
Let's say you want to write a 250 page book -- you accumulate those pages by showing up and filling them one at a time. You also begin collecting and using your power from the very first paragraph you put into form.
Let's say the chosen repetitive action is writing a page a day -- you know what it feels like to write pages from the first day to the last.
It's the same tool -- you just apply it X-number of times.
Completion is not required to shift that vibration -- a (single) willful, (intentional) earthly action will call in the proper vibe.
One small success in a day carries the same energy as thirty of them in a month, or three hundred sixty-five in a year.
Why wait until you're Perfect and Totally Done before you affirm the power shift you're calling in?
You called it -- it's as here -- as in effect -- as it will ever be.
Use that initial achievement to propel you forward.
You do it once?
You've done it.
Do it again.
