Last week in Part 1 of this leaking energy blog I shared about a dream that woke me up to my own “energy leaks.”
In this post we’ll talk about some of the methods you can use to start turning things around.
The first step is…
Make a list
You can’t deal with that which you aren’t aware of. Begin by making a list.
Write down every single little thing that is annoying the hell out of you. It doesn’t matter how old or how recent. Don’t worry about organizing each item in any particular order, just write them all down.
The issues can and will range from the mundane to the critical. You’ll most likely end up with a very long list. Even if they don’t all come to you at once, they will come. Keep the list handy so you can add to it.
Dedicate some time
Once you have the list ready separate some time to deal with the annoyances. Depending on where you’re at this could take a few hours, a weekend or a few months.
It’s ok, take your time and stay consistent.
I would suggest you begin with the smaller, easier things first. Unless of course you’re absolutely ready to tackle something bigger. If so, then by all means go ahead.
You’ll be surprised at how well this can work. You’ve heard that saying, “Nature abhors a vacuum.” It’s true, and once you eliminate an energy leak there is room for an energy enhancer.
You’ll now have room in the “tank” for an energy enhancing practice.
Consider getting an accountability partner
Find someone to hold you accountable for this project. It’s been shown time and time again that if you let yourself be accountable to someone you are more likely to succeed. If being a lone wolf is more your style that’s fine, just make sure you’re truly holding yourself accountable for getting it done.
Reward yourself whenever you tackle a major drain. You’ll know it when you do because it’ll feel like a ton of bricks has been lifted of your shoulders.
Seek serious help if you have an addiction
All humans have bad habits, it’s just part of who we are. The problem is that sometimes bad habits become really bad habits. We call these addictions.
If you recognize your bad habit has crossed the line into addiction territory, please reach out for help.
I don’t care if you’re a navy seal, or a former inmate. There is absolutely no shame in asking for help.
Addictions are powerful, serious business and they will ruin your life if not dealt with.
Adding in good habits
Replace a bad habit with a new good habit. For example, if you’re drinking 6 cups of coffee a day, start by replacing one cup of coffee for a cup of green tea. Maybe add a bottle of water in place of another cup of coffee.
Eventually you’ll lower your need for coffee by adding in a few other good for you options. After a week or two your coffee habit could be down to 3 cups. You get the point.
If you always take the elevator up to your office or apartment, try the stairs. Start with one day of the week and do that for a while. Once you get used to that, then add another day and so forth.
Eventually you’ll scoff at those elevator dependent weaklings!
This is one of my favorite methods to create space and abundance in my life. I swear it works like magic. Clean up some old stuff that’s weighing you down, and before you know it things begin flowing again. It’s like giving your life a tune up, and the more you clear the more powerful the result.
Give it a go and see how it works. For now, list one thing in the comment box that is an energy leak for you.
Talk to you soon!
