One question that rules your life . . .

Why dewayne gupta
There’s a question that rules your life – even if you don’t consciously know the answer.

There’s a question you can ask yourself in every moment to change your life. This one question alone has the power to redirect your energies, change the alignment of your life and the destiny of your path. It can change the course of your day, determine the state of your mood and increase or decrease the stress you’re feeling right now. It will effect everything you manifest and the outcome of each action you take. It will control how you experience every single day of your life.

So what’s the question already?

So it’s a pretty important question, right?

Okay, so here it is – what are you focused on right now?

This one question affects so much of your life because all your energies  go to whatever you’re focused on. Here’s a simple test to demonstrate that to yourself. Ready? WHATEVER YOU DO DON’T THINK OF A PINK ELEPHANT.

So did you think of a pink elephant? How long did it take you to think of something else? Like a purple giraffe?

You thought of a pink elephant, right? Don’t worry. We all do. That’s the point. Our mind automatically focuses on whatever’s in front of us, whether it serves us or not. It can’t be helped, it’s the way your mind automatically works. That’s not the problem. Sometimes what is put in front of you serves you, by making you laugh or giving you a wonderful new idea or source of inspiration. It’s when ideas that don’t serve you come into your space. You’ll still focus on them. It’s an instinct. You can’t help it. What is important, however, is what you do next.

If your mind stays stuck on the pink elephant, you’re in trouble. With all that’s going on in the world right now, you could even be in serious trouble. There’s so much going on that’s negative, divisive and generally toxic that if you remain focused on it you’ll end up anxious, depressed or stressed. It’s times like these when you need to exercise your ‘focus muscles’ and keep your focus on what serves you.

Whatever you focus on you receive more of – focus on joy and you’ll get more joy.

Anything that doesn’t serve you is a distraction. It’ll take your energy away from what you want to create in your own life and put it somewhere else, usually in a place that works for someone else but probably not for you. You receive tremendous benefits when you keep yourself focused on the things that serve you. Your energy will flow into what you want more easily, your life will become more aligned improving the ease and flow in your life and you’ll feel more supported as your results improve.

Here’s a simple trick to help you stay focused on what you want (and not on what you don’t want):

  1. Write down three to five things you want. They can be tangible things, like a healthy body, or intangible, like greater happiness.
  2. Focus on each one. Do you get a picture in your mind that feels good? That is what you want? If so, well done. That’s a positive focus. If not, re-word what you want until the picture is what you want.
  3. Once you’ve have your three to five things that you want, put that list of things somewhere you can see it or find it easily. You can put it on a postit on your mirror, or in your car. You can also put it in the notes in your phone. You can also put it as an event in your calendar so it pops up regularly to remind you what to focus on.
  4. When something grabs your focus during your day, do the same thing. Notice if the image it gives you in your mind feels good or not. If it does you can work with it. If it doesn’t make you feel good you’ll need to re-focus.
  5. You can use your list to re-focus yourself. Picture the things on your list to get yourself back onto a positive track for the day.

The more you practice this the more fit your ‘focus muscles’ will become. Then the world won’t be able to distract you from what you want.

The 3 Minute Solution for Greater Wellbeing

Are you feeling stressed? Out of sorts? As if you’re dragging a weight around with every step?

If so there’s a 3-Minute Solution to give you the pattern of balance for better wellbeing. This pattern is important energetically and neurologically.

Balance
There’s no need to drag yourself through life. Let go of the struggle and give yourself the time and love to find balance.
Leon Brown
Balance work life
Life is like riding a bicycle – in order to keep your balance, you must keep moving.
Albert Einstein

 

All of us get stressed when we lose our connection to our true self – to Who We Truly Are. If we’re not to get stressed we need to maintain one of the fundamental patterns of a healthy life – our balance.

Neurologically and energetically staying balanced is a major key to increasing the ease of connection to Who We Truly Are. When we’re out of balance our system has to constantly compensate for that, which is a drain on our energy and a drag on our efforts. When we’re out of balance we never run at our optimal state and tend to generate more toxicity than usual – a bit like when your car is out of tune it’ll throw up more oil and crud into the engine.

Balance can be static, similar to the picture at the left above – weight on either side of a fulcrum needs to be even if the fulcrum is to stay level. That might work for rocks but it doesn’t work in our human existences. We can’t sit still – there’s too many fun and worthwhile things to be doing.

That means we need a dynamic balance, not a static one. That is what Albert Einstein was speaking about, as quoted on the right above. In energetic terms, it means if we have energy flowing out we need to have the same amount of energy flowing in if we’re to stay balanced. That is the kind of balance that maintains each of your chakras. Your chakras are vortices of electromagnetic energy – they are similar in pattern to a whirlpool. They maintain their shape and structure not through a rigid structure, like your bones, but through the pattern of a balanced flow.

Neurologically a balanced flow is even more important. You have neurological information and impulses flowing from your brain down your nerves and into your body – that’s called the efferent flow. That’s how your brain tells your muscles what to do.

You also have a neurological flow that goes from your toes and fingers back up your nerves and into your brain – called the afferent flow. That’s how your system knows if what it did worked or not.

Maintaining a balanced neurological upflow and downflow helps balanced flows other in your system – like your kundalini energy. It’s essential for wellbeing, both energetically and physically.

Whirlpool
A whirlpool is an example of dynamic balance. Its pattern is maintained by the flow on one side of the pool balancing the flow on the other. If either flow was to decrease the whirlpool would disappear.

 

With this simple exercise you can maintain this essential balance in your system. It doesn’t take long – in fact, if it takes you more than 3 minutes then you’re forcing it, rather than guiding the flow.

Done correctly, this simple exercise will bolster your wellbeing by maintaining a healthy flow in your system. Like many of the techniques I teach, it’s simple but not easy. It requires a clear focus and a strong intention. As with all things, the more you practice it, the better you’ll become at it and the easier it will be. Then it might only take you 1 minute!

Here’s how you do it:

ENERGY BALANCE

  • Focus on the upflow and downflow in your spine. You can focus on your energy or nervous system flow, whichever works better for you. The effects are the same.
  • Intend for both flows to perfectly balance each other.
  • As they come into balance you may notice your body’s relief. Just as good physical posture is easier on your muscles, good EM posture is easier on your nerves.

If you can, do this at the start of each morning to give you good energy for the day and last thing at night to help you recover from the stresses of the day and to improve the quality of your sleep. That way, you’ll really capitalize on your 3 minutes to create tremendous energetic, neurological and physical well-being for yourself.
