When you ignore consciously creating business balance you run the risk of burning out or shutting down both your business “doors” and your brilliance.

Especially at this time of year, I hear from my clients that you are experiencing the effects of BEing out of business balance. This may show up as lack of clients, a lot of “busy-ness” without results or feeling uninspired. Being in a balanced energy state changes everything about what you are able to create through your business.

Think you don’t have time to create balance? Think again. Your success depends upon it.

Here are the 5 EnergyRICH® Secret Keys to creating a balanced business state that has both you and your business flowing effortlessly and connected to your inner divine guidance.

Secret Key #1: Acknowledge the value in taking time to rest, relax and rejuvenate.

The energy of rest, relaxation and rejuvenation is not only for a set part of your schedule, it can also be incorporated into daily business tasks. In fact, this is actually the essence of overall success and creating more business balance.

Taking time to step away from your business “busy-ness” to rest, relax and rejuvenate gives you…

The space for the inspired ideas (from the Universe!) to be heard (by you!) and then moved into manifestation.
The time to consciously align and activate your energies so that more of what you want comes into being.
The ability to take care of yourself physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally so that there is more of you to show up in what you love to do.

This is where your divine creativity gets fed and your business success flows!

Secret Key #2: Tap into the power of passive energy

When you activate both the feminine AND the masculine (or passive and active) forces of energy in your business it opens the door for balance. Each part of the energy pattern (passive and active) needs the other in support of the healthy whole.

In traditional business circles, there is no room for the passive energy. There is the collective belief activated that the only way to achieve success is to “make it happen” – to always be in the energy of ACTION. But the true power is to be able to activate BOTH because (guess what?) you HAVE both inside you. To deny one actually simultaneously weakens the other and throws you OFF balance.

Recognize that passive energy is not weak, but actually strong. When you take action without this energy you may be going around DOING, DOING, DOING, but without the space for passive energy there is no wisdom behind the DOING and you will find yourself in a state of burn out.

Secret Key #3: Choose to operate from Spirit versus Ego

You can only operate from one of two energies at any given time–Ego or Spirit. All good things, including balance, come from the spirit of love. Love is the natural order of the Universe and directly ties into flow and balance. Operating from Spirit creates more abundance and balance in your business - and life and fuels the fountain of potential.

Ego and self-pride have been created by man over time to cover a fragile self-image. Ego is simply trying to protect you. But this false-protection is also limiting your ability to grow, shine, and move beyond where you are - it is warding off your business balance.

Learn to recognize the difference between Ego and Spirit so you can CHOOSE to tune into the energy of a spirit-based consciousness.

Sprit is…

Ego is…
Fear Driven
Afraid of risk

Secret Key #4: Accessing Your Inner Guidance

Each of us carries a guide within (often called intuition). You may sometimes be reluctant to trust this guide, because you are so accustomed to taking your cues from the outside rather than from the inside.

The truth of your own deepest being is trying to show you where to go right now, and when low level energies appear (fear, doubt, worry, judgment, blame, anxiety, etc.) it means you are being called to trust your inner guidance. It speaks in whispers and this can cause you to hesitate, not knowing if you’ve heard correctly. But the indications are always clear: in following your inner guide you will feel more whole and more connected, as if you are moving outwards from the very center of your being.

We’ve been taught, for the most part, to doubt this guide or to believe that it is either a complete and final answer, or none at all. The thing is, as you go with this guidance, you’ll begin to see that it is often an unfolding of one step at a time, and this is a continual reminder that this is all we can ever do anyway.

When you awaken this guide, your life and business will shower blessings and riches on you, much more than you could ever conceive of, or, that’s right, make happen on your own.

Secret Key #5: Create the space for both active and passive times within your business

To be able to clarify if you are coming from Ego or Spirit, and then to be able and willing to hear the guidance you are being given – you’ve got to get still and be quiet.

This is just like going to the gym: thinking about it won’t do much.

You must intentionally create the space to generate business-balance and strengthen this internal muscle. Otherwise, you stay only where you’ve always been.

Choose at least one “You Afternoon” a month, and put it in your calendar.
Block out at least 2 “You Retreats” (1-14 days off) that are about you going somewhere relaxing, fun, OFF and away. This is an opportunity for you to get quiet and open up to hear the guidance that is available to you; this is an essential energy re-charge.

This is separate from family/friend time – but block that off, now, too!

When you step into business balance and allow space to open your heart, Spirit comes in.

Your EnergyRICH Call To Action
1. Start each day with your centering process. When your mind is clear, write out exactly what your day/presentation/client meeting, etc., will be like.

2. Check in every two to three hours: “Am I operating from Ego or Spirit?”

3. Consciously choose “What do I choose next?”

4. Stick to your scheduled times for “retreat”; don’t allow your busy-ness to consume time you have set aside for rejuvenation.

Stay in balance! It’s not all ONLY retreat; access the support you need to follow the inner guidance you receive by BEing in business balance.
