This is one of the valuable questions in Debbie Ford’s book entitled: The Right questions. What I love about all of her questions in this book is that to answer them, you must pop yourself out of autopilot and become conscious to your situations, actions and choices. The question that I am discussing today is: Will this choice add to my life force or will it rob me of my energy?
How often do you feel stuck or un-energized in your day-to-day life? Is there heaviness in your life? Are you moving and making decisions without really stopping and looking at your choices? We all do this each and every day. On one hand, if we didn’t do hundreds of things on automatic pilot, we wouldn’t be able to function. However, I am talking about the choices, even the seemingly little choices that do effect our life.
Choice is a gift we give ourselves. Even the most innocuous every day choices are ours to make and they effect our day and all our future days. When we choose without thinking through the consequences, we rob ourselves the opportunity to make changes.
We can wake up from this trance-like fog just by asking ourselves if the choice will add to our life force or rob us of our energy. In a blink of an eye, we wake to both the choice and the consequences. You will be surprised how much more energy you have when every choice you make comes with thinking through that question.
So often we do things because someone else wants us to or because our perception is that this is the right thing to do. Yet, when we stop and examine it, we may see that it isn’t in our best interest. It may not be propelling us towards are vision of the life we want to lead. It may not be in alignment with where we say we want to go. When we choose from out of alignment with where we want to go; it robs us of our energy. We intrinsically feel out of sorts and we may not ever stop to recognize why.
Give it a try? What do you have to lose besides the low energy and heaviness you are feeling?
I invite you to read Debbie’s Book: The Right Questions so you too can have the life you dream of living.
With light and love,
Till next time,
