Staying Grounded to Power Your Success
Updated: May 26, 2020
A recent conversation with a friend highlighted the difficulty that many people experience in putting their ideas into action. They know what they want to achieve, but struggle to find the focus and the energy to see it through. There may be many reasons for this, but a common issue is that they have not sufficiently grounded their intent in the energy of action.
I’m sure you can think of someone in your life who is full of ideas and is constantly starting one project after the other, but somehow struggles to finish it or make it a success.
The energy that we use to create ideas is not the same as the energy we use to implement it. The same is true for our brain, where different centres govern different activity. Ideas come from the right brain – where we are most creative.
Plans and action come from the left brain where our rational and linear mind can help us take steps to fulfill our ambition.
The energy centres in our body (often called Chakra centres) that we use to create new ideas are at the top of our body (The Crown, Brow and Throat centres). If we want to turn these into reality, we need to engage our base chakra which links to earth energy.
In my corporate and coaching work, I find that where people need the help is not in the ideas, but in the taking the steps towards their goals. Many things can get in our way including a lack of practical experience, limiting beliefs or a lack of engagement to the right energy centres in the body.
To help you do this, I’ve created a simple visualization you can watch here:
