As entrepreneurs we get so focused on the HOW of achieving a goal. We often spend hours trying to think up solutions. Trying to think up new ways of doing things. Spend hours caught up in fighting fires and DO-ING in general.
And right now especially, as we enter 2012, chances are many people have thought about what they want to happen this year and busily try to think of HOW they’re going to achieve it.
In my experience and as many of the personal development books also say, thinking HOW doesn’t work in a sustainable way. Sure, it can provide short term solutions but it’s only when we can let go of the HOW and surrender … trust that our higher self will bring the solution … that the magical solutions manifest.
Just this week was yet another great reminder of that for me. More specifically, it was a great reminder of how our vibration levels … how the energy state we maintain is EVERYTHING. It’s way more important than what we think. It’s WAY more powerful than any solution we can come up with.
I was at Woodford Folk Festival and in a fairly calm mood but I wasn’t completely present. I was a little in my head wondering how I was going to match the entertainment needs of my children with the entertainment needs of my friend and at the same time meet up with some other friends who wanted to see the bands, and have a fun time myself. While I was doing all this thinking, my children were telling me they were bored, argumentative and not having a good time, and it was creating confused telephone communication with my friend who I was trying to meet up with.
Quickly realising what I was doing, I stopped thinking and raised my energy vibration to one of “love”. The instant I did that the boys completely changed (without words being spoken). They started cuddling me and kissing me and started having a great time and the affection and fun continued for the rest of the day and into the night. And my vibration level stayed high all afternoon and into the night. Co-incidence? I don’t think so.
This morning it happened once again. I was a little tired and a little dehydrated so I wasn’t in a really high vibration space. The children were in an argumentative mood. I soon realised what was occurring so I drank a litre of water. The instant I did that, I got my usual body buzz, I could feel my eyes widen and a feeling of joy come over me. And magically too, the instant that happened, the children started giggling and having a ball and they’ve been that way ever since.
For me, it’s another wonderful reminder NOT to try and think our way to solutions. Instead – if we can manage our energy vibration and consistently maintain a state of love or higher, our energy radiates and it has an amazing effect on those around us. It also energises our intentions and manifests them easily … in magical and surprising ways.
The moral of the story?
Forget about the HOW and the DO-ING. Simply focus on acting to create an energy state of BE-ing required to manifest the solutions.
