3 Energy Clearing Tips for the New Year

 


I recently had the opportunity to facilitate an Energy Patch Ceremony (EPC) with a client (an hour-long ceremony based on James Endredy’s work, found in his book Beyond 2012).

Fundamentally, the EPC is about creating an energy patch for everything that drains you and/or takes away your attention. The energy patch allows you to focus on the business at hand, while at the same time organizes you towards eliminating energy drains in perfect timing on the physical plane.

The New Year represents not only a time to embrace our ideals and aspirations for the future, it is a time to let go of old energies which may be lingering to make way for the new. The start of a New Year presents an opportunity to turn our attention to the energetic remnants lingering from the past for a fresh start of the new year.

The following 3 tips (excerpted from Christan Hummel’s best-selling book, the Do It Yourself Space Clearing Kit) will empower you to sweep out the old and make way for the new:

1.  Ceremony : Ceremony is a time when we honor life, the seasons, and those aspects of living beyond the physical. It brings us in touch with the worlds beyond our everyday, and reminds us of a vastness of Life beyond our immediate attention. Make time for ceremony in your life and you will open a doorway into another dimension beyond this one allowing fresh new ideas, inspiration and energies to flow into your business.

It could be a simple ceremony like a ribbon-cutting ceremony to initiate new energies, or popping of the champagne cork to signify the bringing in of the New Year. Whatever the ceremony, when you do it with intention and awareness that ceremony heralds in the energies of your intention in a much more profound manner than when we simply and perfunctorily perform the same act.

2.  Consciousness : Where we put our consciousness, we put our life energy. Find the aspects of your business where you have vacated your consciousness; those “dead zones” that you pretend are not there, or wish weren’t. For some people it could be tax returns that are not completed, old business relationships that went sour and have remaining bitterness, or simply letting go of worrying. Put your consciousness into that energy, with intention, and yes, even ceremony, and notice the MAGIC that happens when you do! Energy flows where attention goes!

3.  Cycles : There is a rhythm to Life, a time for growth, and a time for death. Cycles are important to observe: moon cycles are often used for planting, cutting hair, beginning new projects. Similarly, observing the cycles of the sun of day and night, being more active during the daylight hours, and winding down in the evening when there is less energy available. As well there are the larger seasonal cycles, solstices, equinoxes, and the times in between them (what the Celts called the cross quarter days.) When we are in tune with and align consciously with these cycles of nature, the rhythm of Life, we find more harmony and balance in our lives.

The season of Winter is a natural time to go inside–hibernate in the cave like the bear–reflect, pull our energies inwards, a kind of death to the old, so that we can go forward in the Spring with new energy and enthusiasm unencumbered by the past. Then, beginning on Feb. 1st (Ground Hog’s Day) we enter the cycle between the Winter Equinox and the Spring Equinox, a time traditionally honored by the Celts as the time to plant the seed of the new idea so that it may sprout in the Spring. When we follow these cycles, we harness the Life energy of the planet begin to dance to the same beat of Life. So by paying attention to the cycles of Life, we begin to work with them to receive the gift of their energy.

As these tips demonstrate, we can dramatically clear and shift our energies; providing sanctuary to reflect our highest intentions and dreams (read all 6 Feng Shui Space Clearing Tips).

Collective Seeds

 


Jung

Originally uploaded by Mercedes & Greg

I have been interested in Carl Jung’s work for a long time. Like many of us, I was introduced to his work in college, but not at any particular depth (given that my major was accounting; no surprise). Over the years, his work has crossed my radar-screen here and there (given my interest in business & spirituality; no surprise).

Soon I am going to start working with a Jungian Therapist, so I decided it was time to learn more about Jung. I picked up a biography (by Claire Dunne with a forward by Jean Houston) and read in the prelude:

Jung’s work teaches:

Man needs to become his complete self to live whole.

God needs man to mirror his creation and help it evolve.

The whole human being is open to God as co-creator.

I was astounded….these are the seeds of the foundation of the Strategy Stream Program.  I could not, of course, put it so elegantly or succiently, and it is way to lofty to say that the program delivers anything but an aspiration of seeds.  I rarely use the word God, yet….these are the seeds:

In order to have your business be whole, you must be whole.

Your business is a gift (from God), caring for and evolving it is your gift back.

From the whole and complete foundation of your business, you easily access “God” as your co-creative partner.

Maybe Jung was right….there is a collective unconscious that we tap into.

My faith has deepened.

1:Look into the mysterious 2:Integrate 3:Flow

Look for the mysterious in life. Wherever you look – in the white clouds, in the stars in the night, in the flowers, in a flowing river – wherever you look, look for the mystery. And whenever you find that a mystery is there, meditate on it. Meditation means: dissolve yourself before that mystery, annihilate yourself before that mystery, disperse yourself before that mystery. Be no more, and let the mystery be so total that you are absorbed in it. And suddenly a new door opens, a new perception is achieved ~Osho

When you are attempting to implement, tweak, or develop a growth plan for your business, the first step should always be checking into the mysterious. Checking into the mysterious means looking beyond your first impressions, viewing your business holographically and moving beyond the boundaries of making “typical” business decisions. In this way you access and integrate new perceptions into action and suddenly …all flows.

Deliver Transformative Services

Originally uploaded by mpodolak

When you deliver a product or service, you are participating in a shared reality that exists between you and your customers. There is an intimate agreement about the shared reality. There is trust and communication about the mutual benefits of your interchange. This is communion; a sharing of spirit.

Within the space of communion, there is a natural evolution that is set in motion. It is a given that this evolution is a growth process for both you and your customers. Consider approaching the development and delivery of your products and services with a conscious commitment to evoke evolution and transformation.

Any evolution is a process; a growth pattern. You set the evolution in motion by fulfilling a specific need or desire for your customer. From that point forward, you are in a unique position to evoke evolution. When you evoke, you go beyond simply participating in the reality between you and your customer, to deeply influencing (impressing) upon the reality.

In order to evoke vs. participate, add an element to each and every one of your products & services that meets not only the immediate desire of your customer, but a “higher desire” as well. Always reflect back to your customer a vision of their highest self. For example, if you are selling “A” laptops, delivering it with the clear message that your customer has everything to do with why this laptop is so fantastic, meets a higher-desire recognition that “A” laptop users are smart and savvy. When your “A” laptop customer configures their laptop, invite them to join an on-line community of smart and savvy “A” laptop users. These higher desire attributes impress upon the growth pattern of evolution –deepening the relationship with your customer, as well as evoking qualities of co-creation, self-esteem and community.

Think of your products & services as an invitation to an intimate interchange with your customer vs. an exchange –this is the access to communion. An interchange is spirit-to-spirit vs. an ego-to-ego exchange. If you choose to hold and maintain the interchange of communion with sacred gloves, you impress upon the evolution implicit in communion. Impressing with loving consciousness is the opportunity to influence the highest evolution for business, the planet, and humanity.

Love is the Yoke

Consider that when you formulate and act your business dream into being you are accessing the intangible world of spirit and then yoking it into the tangible, material world.  Your dream comes from spirit, your plan is a cart, and love is the yoke (a yoke is a wooden beam placed on oxen to pull a cart or load).

Only you, as a divine human, have the ability to use your heart (or love) as the yoke for everything that you do –imagine the possibilities when transacting every aspect of your business from the space or yoke of love –how delighted spirit would be with you then (assuming that matters to you, of course).  Essentially you create a heaven on earth –a space for spirit to further express and expand itself into tangible existence.

Your vision of your business comes from spirit and expressing that vision is your gift back to spirit. There really is no other choice but to act from the heart in all aspects of your business.  The degree to which we all fight this truth –the degree to which we act in non-compassionate, destructive ways within the realm of business, is the degree to which we, and everyone impacted by business, suffers.

Making a conscious choice to make love to the world with business is a choice we can all live with and yoke to.

The Principle of Wheat

Running a business is a creative process at every phase. There is never a point in any business where every single detail is known. Creating a business plan is about designing a strong framework in which the business can operate, while at same time allowing enough flexibility for conscious observation and spirit-filled revision.

Once a plan is produced, it is a given that weeds of error, such as faulty observation, old habits of thought, and so on will sprout just as quickly as seeds of wisdom and foresight. Remember the parable in the Gospel according to St. Matthew concerning the wheat and the tares? It is a story of the successful application of revision:

So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, ‘Sir, didst thou not sow good seed in they field? From whence then hath it tares?’ He said unto them; ‘An enemy hath done this.’ The servants said unto him, ‘Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?’

“But he said, ‘Nay, lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root out also the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest; and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, gather first the tares, and bind them into bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.”

Based on my studying the lessons of B.O.T.A., my understanding is the principle of wheat is about accepting with love and compassion everything that shows up once a plan or project is set in motion. It is about being 100% revision-responsible without pouting, blame or revenge — this is the true power of the principle of wheat.

When You Feel a Peaceful Joy You’re Near the Truth

 

 

Evolving business planning concepts teach us to interweave joy and and deep attention.

You know what it feels like to be “in the flow” –-those times when your words and actions seem supported by creation –when for example, a specific person was needed, they would show up; when a certain set of circumstances was necessary for a project to go on, the pieces seemed to magically fall into place.  It could be said that in those moments, your Highest Self was guiding your actions to joyfully co-create with Spirit.

You have also probably experienced what it feels like when you are not in the flow, when you have wandered off your path and joy seems replaced by struggle. In those times, things do not move easily; the “wick won’t light”.

What can bring you back to your path is consciously tuning in —repeatedly reawakening to peace and your Higher Self. In the space of joyful awakening there is access to deep knowledge of what to create, speak, release, and leverage in the moment and for the future of your business.

“When you feel
a peaceful joy, you’re near the truth. Unquiet and
off center, jealous or

greedy, what you do seems pretentious and those around
you insincere. Speak

the clearest truth you know, and let the dis-ease heal.
If words are tinged with

lying, they’re like water dripping into an oil lamp. The
wick won’t light, and

the pleasure and rest of your love room will diminish.” ~Rumi
