The energy flowing between us and the world around us impacts on everything we do. In many ways, we are navigating life within a tornado of energy pulling and pushing us in various directions. Being in alignment with that energy will guide us to living our life to the fullest with the natural flow of the power and momentum around us. And believe it or not, that energy will flow to where we want it. Have you ever wished and willed for something so much, and suddenly the universe provides? You made that promotion, your health improved, you reached your goal. When we direct our energy into our purpose and potential, we find our way through life in tune with our pure energies.
We have explored so much over the last few weeks in this series on understanding and cultivating our energy. How can we now put it all together so that we can use all of it to reach our potential? How can we manifest our goals and live the life we want to explore?
1: Focus on The Big Picture
Diversions and distractions can suck our energies away from the original plan. They can complicate our schedule, delay our route, even miss a few turns completely along the way. When this happens our energy lowers and our drive can plummet. That goal we were aiming for hits the proverbial pothole and gets stuck and so does the energy we were using to reach our potential.
By focusing on the bigger picture, guiding our energies directly to where they need to be (and ignoring or avoiding those distractions) we aim higher, wider, deeper, and soon enough those natural high energies help us to reach our potential.
2: Visualise It on the Big Screen
When you know what that big picture is, visualise it. Visualising our goals is a powerful way to manifest our dreams. So put it up on the big screen, make it stand out, do a vision board, ensure it is always front and centre in your mind so your positive energy powers up your dreams. Ask yourself as you visualise, “What can I do to manifest this goal?”
Allow all of your thoughts surrounding your goal flow around you. Reach for the thoughts which will help you reach your goal and focus on them. Make them bigger, brighter, and louder. Give them the power they deserve to help you visualise and aim for what you want to achieve.
3: Blueprint Your Life
As we’ve said, everything in our life impacts on our energy. When we are aiming for something specific, we can hit roadblocks we don’t envisage. In fact, we may not even know where these roadblocks came from.
By blueprinting our lives, we can see the source of all of our energy. Start by writing down the people in your life, from friends, colleagues, relatives, and the people online you chat with frequently. Note your habits, the foods you eat, how you sleep, how you live. Is there anything blocking you from reaching your potential? Ask yourself, if you were to make no changes in your life, would you still be able to manifest your dreams?
4: Embrace Simplicity
We can easily complicate matters. As humans we are prone to the negativity bias, so we tell ourselves that it’s too hard or we don’t deserve it. By embracing simplicity we bring the task and issues at hand back to their primal form. We recognise the base elements of what we are trying to achieve. This alleviates stress and complications which can come from exaggerating and confounding what we are looking for. Life does not have to be as complex and problematic as we make it!
5: Be Self-Aware
We can often plough on like a bull in a china shop. We have great intentions, we know our direction, but are we knocking the fine china over as we go about fulfilling our dreams? By maintaining a self-awareness, we will see when our energies are pulling us in a negative way. We can learn to balance those energies and focus on the high power which will lead us onto the right path.
When we are self-aware we learn so much about ourselves, why we do certain things, and how our behaviours affect our own lives and that of others.
6: Recharge Your Batteries
Knowing we have the potential to chase our dreams and hold them in our hands means we can put a significant amount of pressure on ourselves. We set timelines which may not be achievable, we run faster than we should, and we tire out quickly. Recognise when your reserves are low and when your energy is calling for some restoration. This could be your brain power dwindling with a project or falling at the last hurdle with a new venture.
Rome wasn’t built in a day and reaching our potential is a journey. Your energy provides the backbone to reach that goal, but you must care for it and for you along the way.
7: Shift to Positivity
When you come back refreshed, maintain a positive outlook on where you are in reaching your potential. Yes, we can be hit with setbacks, but we can use obstacles and delays to our advantage if we remain positive. Negativity has a terrible habit of stripping us of high energies which sustain our positivity in life.
How we view our challenges, our life, our dreams, all comes down to perspective. And yes, I know it is easier said than done to simply think positive, but in reality when we lean towards embracing a positive outlook, we manifest high supportive energy more easily.
8: Be Realistic
Winding our way through our journey to reach our goals or fulfil our potential can be daunting. We set ourselves so many challenges along the way, so be realistic about what you can achieve and how you can achieve them. Remember that we can’t do it all, we are one human in a vast world, and we are not defined by our successes or our failures. Being realistic maintains a healthy balance on the positive energies we surround ourselves with throughout our journey. Without being realistic, a negative conversation can filter into our minds which says we are not up to scratch or that we’ve failed. Learn how to measure your idea of success by assessing it with what is a realistic achievement.
9: Enjoy Life
When we have a goal, we can race towards it with our sights firmly set on achieving. However, life is all-encompassing, its glowing and riveting. Goals can give us tunnel vision and we miss out on so much. Remember, our experiences, those we connect with, and our thoughts all impact on the power of our energies. Without those experiences we will struggle to cultivate our energy, store it, and harness it. So enjoy life. Don’t miss out on the scenery as you travel through but rather embrace it!
10: Unleash Your Potential
Remember to celebrate every little win! These positive energies, these small wins, and big goals, will help you unleash your potential!
