How to Stay in Your “New You” Energy

Posted by: | Comments (1)

I wrote recently about “new year, new energy, new you.”

I suggested you pick a word or phrase for this year, and/or your birth year. Making it rhyme is fun but not necessary.

Do you still remember your words of intention? Do they still hold the same energy for you?

If not, I’ll tell you the secret of staying in that energy.

First, realize that you don’t need the calendar to tell you when you can make a fresh start.

At any time, you can re-return to your intention.

Then, staying in that energy is actually simple.

You recommit to it every day. You remind yourself of it every day.

And—here’s the big key–you take some action, however small, in alignment with that energy.

Ideally, you do it daily.

Every action you take is like another ray of energy coming from your intention, connecting your intention with the physical world.

For example, my words for this my 66th year are “66: the year to fix (or nix).” I have gotten things fixed around the house that were on the back burner before. I have seen some health care providers to improve some health issues that I’ve been neglecting. And I “nix” by every day getting rid of something I no longer want or need—even if it’s only an old tube of toothpaste!

(My husband is rather a pack rat, and will even take something out of the trash and say, “Did you really mean to throw this away?” At first it was kind of annoying. Then I realized that saying, “Yes, if I throw it away, I mean not to keep it” actually drew me deeper into my intention to “nix.” So I cheerfully reaffirm that commitment when he asks. I also bought some black trash bags so he can’t see what’s in them! Small, daily actions!)

My intention includes letting go or changing thoughts and beliefs too, by the way. For instance, when a doctor gave me a dire warning, I “nixed” that thought. I changed it to, “She is coming from the typical ‘western medicine approach,’ which totally disregards energy or less invasive approaches to a problem.” I prayed, followed my “next clear step,” and have some very viable alternatives to try before the radical option she suggested. I refuse to entertain any thoughts that are not in line with faith and my deepest knowing.

This calendar year, 2023, is my “year to be free.” That ties in very nicely with the other intention. I am working to be free of the stuff, thoughts, commitments that no longer serve me.

So today, I encourage you to start doing some action, however small, to keep you in your intended energy. Do something daily.

It also helps a whole lot to be accountable, or at least to be witnessed. That’s why I encouraged you to share your words of intention with me or someone else. (Leave a comment to be witnessed.) You might even share some of your intended actions, and ask the person to check in with you on those.

Or, you could simply be accountable to yourself, by setting a reminder in your phone to pop up when you still have time to take action. For instance, I could set a reminder for 8 p.m.: “What have you fixed or nixed today?”

Or you could do both! Be accountable to yourself and to someone else.

Make it fun. Make it daily. Make it stick.
