I am a “self help junkie” but even I get into a slump. Many who know me know that I can go into “geek mode”, hibernation… where I get obsessed with a project and sit on the computer researching and reading and typing to the point that I forget mundane things like getting dressed, showers, food, cleaning the house, etc. Can anyone else relate to this? This is the beauty and downfall from working from home. Thank God, that some of my clients still come to my home office, otherwise I would have little incentive to clean it…I kid you not!
So what happens after the cleanse? What happens when you have all of this newfound energy? When we've released that extra weight and heaviness that no longer serves us. We are coming out of hibernation mode and are ready for the springtime and yes... spring-cleaning! When what at first appears impossible suddenly seems possible!
Anything we ignore, mind you, builds up. What we resist persists, proven by the mold in my refrigerator! Everyone has been asking me, "When will you have another workshop, another cooking class, or another group in your home?" Sounds fun and exciting to me until I look at the neglect I've caused and immediately feel overwhelmed.
This is where my cleanse and my job comes to play. One of my clients came to pick up sprouts this weekend, I made her my green energy soup and suddenly she was daring enough and energized enough to look in my pantry….She happens to be a professional organizer and started giving me my own medicine right back at me! We started to clear the clutter, which got me motivated to clean a little more on Sunday, a tiny bit more on Monday and this morning, before work, I tackled the almighty refrigerator! She gave me the little push, a little coaching, a few tips to do little “digestible bites” at a time…sound familiar? Exactly what I needed to clear the air so that I can complete my summer newsletter, which you will see before the end of the month!
The most miraculous part of this is that what seemed utterly painful to me, really wasn't that bad and was kind of meditative, just like my clients tell me food prep becomes. Reminds me of the movie Karate Kid…”wax on, wax off, wax on, wax off”. Will this be my new yoga? My moving meditation? LOL & Doubtful! Still nothing is more fun than yoga dance!
What will you do today with your newfound energy? What has been weighing you down?
