Tying Up Loose Ends
|May 5, 2010||Posted by Teresa Ivory under Articles|
Loose ends, unfinished business, procrastinated must dos, they all drain the energy you need for success. Today’s post is a follow up to My Missing Gravatar where mentioned why I hadn’t responded to posts for way too long. It wasn’t until last night, I remembered that I’d never gone back to the comments! Too much excitement over finally accomplishing a successful photo shoot, I thought.
My Reality Radar set off an alarm one second after that idea popped into my head. Yes, it’s always exciting to overcome something that’s been giving you a problem, but no, it wasn’t the truth this time. I’ve been working on knowing the depths of my soul too long not to recognize another bout of procrastination trying to set in.
The REAL me
I hate tying up loose ends! I love new, fun, fresh adventure. Tying up loose ends – especially when I’ve delayed for any reason which then leaves me feeling lousy like I haven’t met my own or someone else’s expectations – just isn’t fun.
Solution? I decided take a look at the energy.
I’d better explain for those of you who aren’t my students. When I began studying energy work, I realized I could see the energy that was causing someone’s health problems. I could then check to see what their energy would look like if it was performing optimally and make the shifts needed to get it there. It was just as easy – once I actually thought about it – to see the energy of any situation or relationship, see how it was affecting the energy of everyone involved, and understand the action needed to create an optimal environment.
A quick look at the energy of the unanswered comments looked like bright cords anchored on their end and waving around like they were looking for something on my end. Just as quickly I switched to optimal energy view and saw those loose ends linked to me. Oh, duh! They were the same energy cords we create when we interact with anyone else. Hello! – it made perfect sense that I simply hadn’t finished making the connections. Then, of course I felt terrible about the missed opportunities to connect with the great people who have been reading and supporting my blog.
Corrective action in progress!!
I am spending every bit of time necessary this week to respond to all of the unanswered comments on this blog. I will also be looking around the house and through my relationships for any other loose ends I need to tie up.
What effect do loose ends have on your life? And what actions do you take to tie them up? Please share in a comment so we can all grow!
