Bring The Energy You’d Like To See

A Shift

“Whatever you focus on expands.”  – Pam Grout

Have you ever watched the energy shift as soon as someone walks into a room?  In my teaching days it became a daily practice to check my energy before walking in the door. It was a practice I had to cultivate.  If I happened to forget and bring my frenzied rush hour commute into the classroom, we were all doomed!

Yes.

I am that powerful.

And so are you.

One year I had the good fortune of working with a child who taught me a clear lesson about energy.  This child would literally climb the door frame if I wasn’t watching. Once I turned around to find him standing on the window ledge of our 3rd story classroom!  His “I need help controlling my body” energy affected us all.  I was affected by his amped up energy that would in turn amp up the energy of the whole classroom.  It was a trying time to say the least.

Despite the difficulty of the year, I learned about energy. I learned that I could help this child and his classmates by changing MY energy, by changing MY thoughts.  I was better able to help him with his energy after I took care of my own.  It took practice (an ongoing practice) but it really served me, the children and ultimately my own family.

I’m still working on this…every day!

Wishing you well,

Tracy

I recently led a book study of Pam Grout’s E2 Nine Do It Yourself Energy Experiments To Prove That Your Thoughts Create Your Reality.  The Alby Einstein Principle, Experiment #3, involves creating a divining rod of sorts with wire hangers and straws.  Then, experimenting by thinking different thoughts and casting your attention in different directions to see what happens to the rods.  We all tried it with little expectation and were astounded at our ability to move the rods with our thoughts.  It was such a powerful experiment that we ended up using it to center our energy before each of the next six gatherings.  Try it!

High Energy Fun

The Joy Of Letting Go

“Look at me! Look at me! Look at me NOW! It is fun to have fun. But you have to know how.” – Dr. Seuss

Have you ever felt like you have forgotten how to have fun? That you used to laugh, feel free?  Sometimes we get so caught up in our world as parents that we forget that we used to thrive in nonsense.  At least I did…  In fact, the thing that most attracted me to my husband was his uncanny ability to have fun in just about any situation.

So, instead of taking the spectator stance, as I often do at children’s birthday parties, I decided to don those cool orange socks at Sky Zone and jump to my heart’s desire. For $11 I jumped, laughed and even peed a little…  And, had a great time doing it!

Yes, I played it safe despite my kids’ best efforts to get me to bounce off the wall.

Yes, I was breathless by the time I bounced off the mat.

Yes, there were many times when I was the only adult jumping.

But, I had a great time and most importantly, my kids saw me having high energy fun. They experienced me not as Mommy but as Tracy.  My daughter, jumping beside me, giggled with delight as we alternated mimicking each other’s jumping techniques.  I must say, I am quite the pro jumper now and am seriously considering a gig with Cirque de Soleil…

Wishing you well.

Intentions

Setting The Stage For The Year To Come

“The body appears to be largely self-motivated and independent, yet it actually responds only to the intentions of the mind.”—A Course in Miracles

 img_5099-640x480-2

In all of the years of setting New Year’s resolutions, I remember this one the most.  I didn’t realize it at the time, but it was the first intention I ever truly set.

While at the beach with some friends one New Year’s Eve, we shared our resolutions for the coming year. It didn’t take much that year to come up with this.  “I plan to do less of what I don’t want to do and more of what I do”.  There was much more to this than I let on at the table that night so on our way home I shared my “resolution”  with my fiancé.

“I want to get married, just the two of us, in Taos (our honey moon destination), and have a big celebration after.” I said, holding my breath. Wedding planning was just not my thing.  To my relief, he loved the idea so I started planning our elopement instead.  Ok, it wasn’t really an elopement as everyone knew we were getting married.  We planned a private ceremony sans everyone but the two of us.

When we returned home from our New Year’s trip I made a list of everything I would need to arrange and in one phone call to the Taos Chamber of Commerce I hung up with the information I needed to plan the entire ceremony, including a cake, photographer and flowers . All in thirty minutes!

Our “elopement” was amazing, with the focus on us and our marriage, just as I wanted it to be. We had an unforgettable celebration a few months later.   I have not had a second thought about our choice to this day…almost 17 years later!

How To Set An Intention:

~Trust in your inner guidance system

(I will do more of what I want to do and less of what I don’t) 

Meditate, center, find some stillness. Set a timer for 3 minutes.   Write down a list of possible intentions, whatever comes to mind, without censoring it, adding to it or changing it. Get it all out, even the ones that don’t make sense.  What does your heart desire?

~State a clear intention

(I will rearrange wedding plans and plan an elopement)

Choose the one you are most intuitively drawn to. The one with the most zing. Not necessarily the one you should.  Laser focus.  Get it crystal clear.

~Support the intention with action steps

Create clear action steps. How will you honor your intention? Put them on your calendar.

*(Call Taos Chamber of Commerce)

*(Arrange for a cake, photographer, flowers, B & B, minister, witness, marriage license)

*(Book flight)

*(Change local wedding plans to party – Call venue, caterer, DJ)

Wishing you well.

A Fond Farewell To 2015

Year End Reflection

“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.” Wayne Dyer

Fireworks Show VII

In the past few weeks I’ve taken some time to reflect on 2015, with compassion and gratitude. It was an eventful year.  A year full of many blessings, in disguise and outright.  And some real opportunities for growth.  I have come out of it with a greater understanding of myself and a new perspective on my life and the way I wish to proceed into the New Year.

With my previous awareness I would have called it a BIG YEAR. A year of the good, the bad and the ugly.  Accentuating the ugly.  It happened to be a year that was unusually full of circumstances.  Some created by me and others by the grace of the divine.  I am finally beginning to understand that it is only BIG if I label it as such.  If I call it BIG it becomes bigger than me.  It’s the thought about the circumstance that makes it bigger than me.  The circumstance is just a circumstance.  A circumstance is “the way something happens” as Encarta describes it.

In all of the decades of knowing this, by George, I think I am finally getting it! It hasn’t happened over night.  I still find myself getting stuck in the thought about a circumstance.  Grabbing ahold of that thought and telling myself a tall tale about that circumstance.  But, now, my recovery time is quicker.  I know that this is a never ending process.  The redirection of my thoughts.  The lesson of a lifetime.  But I am grateful for the awareness and the opportunity to practice.

So…get out your calendar from 2015, a pen and your journal. Take a close look at the events that unfolded.  Journal it out.  Do a mind-dump.  Then, find the good in each circumstance.  Find the hidden blessings.  Rewrite last year’s story with compassion for the woman who experienced those circumstances and thank her for where she is today.

Wishing you well

Tracy
