Success Principle #13:  Take Action

The Principle in a Nutshell: Do something!  The universe rewards action.

Discussion: This is one of the simplest principles to understand, yet still demands exploring.  As I see it, there is a great divide between many goal-oriented and success programs and spiritual programs, where there needn’t be.  Sometimes on a spiritual path we can go into magical thinking and expect the world to open up for us because we have meditated or visualized.  On the other path of success and goal-oriented seminars, we can push too hard and think we are the only factor in what happens.  In between, there is a path of taking action and letting go.  Of doing, what Bernardo Monserrat, of CRS in Santa Fe, says is our 10% (the universe or God being the 90%).  In my experience, we don’t even have to figure out the right action, we just have to let the universe know that we’re in.  We do this by taking action.

Sedona Method Release:

Allow yourself to think about an action you could take to achieve your goal.  Maybe it’s giving up refined sugars, or going to a networking event, or writing that book.  And notice, in thinking about that action, does any resistance arise?  If so, could you just welcome the resistance and allow it to let go.  Repeat this step at least 3 times until you feel courage or acceptance about taking that step.  Also, notice if the mind is trying to figure out whether that action step will be helpful or not?  If so, could you let go of trying to figure it out?

Movement/Play Activity:  
This is a great principle to play with in the body.  Just allow yourself to think about taking that action step (literally moving in that direction) and see what happens.  You can also play with this as a multiple choice question.  So, if you are working on weight loss, the image to your right might be of a big X over refined sugars.  In front of you may be an image of fish and vegetables.  To your left may be an image of working out at the gym.  Holding these images in your mind, see what it feels like to move towards each of these.  Then go back to the above exercise and release on whatever shows up.

What do you think?

What did you notice when you brought the release into your body?
