Everyday living can teach us some of life’s most valuable lessons. It is our desire to share these lessons and our take away as a simple solution to transforming your life.
One such story appeared a few years’ ago when getting an estimate on adding insulation to the attic. One estimator shared a process that impacted our thinking.
“He said it was his job to seal any opening where light showed through. Those areas represent energy leaks and it was costing us money by letting the heat out and the cold in.”
That process prompted us to look at various areas of our life and identify ways we were losing energy. It became a priority to insulate ourselves from energy loss. Imagine, with us, what if your life was like rooms in your home.
The Body Room
What am I doing to keep good efficient energy in my body? Am I sufficiently hydrated? What am I using for fuel? Is it healthy and good for me? Am I breathing, exercising and stretching properly? Am I wearing the proper clothing in the right sizes to support my daily activities? Do I take care to relax, get massages and pamper my body?
The Finance Room
Is there a budget in place to eliminate stress? Have I established a saving account for a rainy day or that special trip I always wanted to take? Am I frugal or stingy? Am I a giver? Where do I get my income? Do I have multiple streams of income? Do I work for money or does money work for me?
The Spirit Room
Do I surround myself with people and things that have positive energy? Do I do what I love and love what I do? Am I taking time to be still? Do I truly honor, love and trust myself? Do I support myself through books, church/spiritual groups and classes? Do I allow myself to connect with nature? Am I praying and meditating? Do I sing and dance?
The Family Room
Am I filled with love? Do I love myself? Do I give and receive love? Am I able to extend my love to family, friends and all of creation? Am I willing to do the work on myself? Can I allow others to work on themselves and love them in their process? Am I flexible on my journey?
In some of these rooms messes are made, things are spilt and stuff gets broken. Any of these rooms can be revolving doors where energy escapes. Add and subtract questions as needed. Answer truthfully. Sealing energy leaks will require time, work and a willingness to change. Create an action plan and get ready to transform.
