This week we are working on automation. If you haven’t heard me talk about this before, automation has several levels to it but the human level we will begin with aligns itself with procrastination. How many times during the day do you say to yourself or others…”remind me to do this,” or “don’t let me forget to.” These are forms of procrastination but more important they are forms of energy leaks. 2017 is all about taking your energy back and the best way to do this is to find where you have leaks and eliminate them.
I used to have a habit of bringing in the mail and starting a pile in the kitchen of bills to take care of or things to do. The mail stacks up, some even junk that could easily be thrown away. This is what happens when you have mental lists of to do’s. They pile up and create an energetic shelf with energetic items on them. Each item requiring you to hold space for it, cluttering your mind and your field. Imagine all of the things you need to do literally weighing down on you in every moment. You may not realize how much energy you hold for these but there is literally an energetic cord to every one of them, attached to an energy leak floating above your head like a dark cloud blocking your light until you give it attention and allow it to clear.
Automation is taking care of things as soon as they come up. It can be as simple as having to pee. I will get so busy sometimes that I won’t give myself the time to go to the bathroom. Energetically I sit there obsessing about having to go but will keep doing what I am doing, at a lesser capacity because I am mentally and energetically distracted. This happens with everything you are putting off in your life. Calling a client, filing your taxes, doing the dishes, renewing your tags, etc. etc. etc.
As soon as something comes up, take care of it and get it off of your plate. This frees your energy so that you can use it for more important things and create clearly. Give yourself a chunk of time now, verses a fraction of time constantly until you finally do take care of it. Remember that time is an illusion anyway, so gift yourself as much as you need and it will all get done efficiently.
