To have balance in one’s life is simply to put energy into ALL areas of your life.
What that means is creating the means to focus on the four parts of the human?
Here are the four sides of the our human nature.
Create a square on a piece of paper. On the bottom of the square put emotional, on the left side put mental, on the top put spiritual, on the right side put physical. Rate yourself honestly between 1 and 10 and put the number beside the word.
Emotional. Relationship with self and others.
Mental. The attitude. The financial.
Spiritual. Connection to the power greater than you.
Physical. The physical part of the body.
Example: If you are 5’2″ and weight 180 pounds, never exercise, and eat junk food, you might rate yourself on the physical side at a 2. If you live paycheck to paycheck the mental side would be a 2. If you have no idea what spiritual is, a 1 might be the rating. If you have good relationships with yourself and others, you might be a 9 on the emotional side.
With a billion dollar diet industry one does not have to wonder too far which side we spend a lot of time on. The amount of time we spend on looking good in incredible.
Making money is second to this. We want money so we can spend more time looking good with the cars and houses.
These two sides are pretty well exercised.
Do you know people who have lots of money and have had three divorces? The relationship side probably has not had a lot of attention.
How about the spiritual side? Too much time in the spiritual side creates imbalance on the physical side as well.
When one works on only one side or two sides, one does not create harmony, one creates chaos.
Sure, you can set a goal, for example in the physical side, and not pay attention to the spiritual side. When you hit the physical goal, you may not feel the satisfaction of achieving the goal. When I have done this in the past I have wondered why I only felt elated for a few minutes and then off to achieve the next goal. It was never enough. On the same token you can set a spiritual goal of meditating every day but if you forget to move your body, the body will not work as efficiently.
This may seem like common sense but in reality, it is not. Too many people today are unaware that their focus is on one area so that they can avoid other areas in their lives.
Taking stock of where you are at, and of what you are doing in life is key to creating a life that is high in vibration and high in productivity.
By now some of your egos will be telling you that your life is not that bad, it is not that messed. And it would be right. You are not broken. You do not need to be fixed.
If, however there are things you want to do in your life, then exercises like this one are ones to pay attention to. These are the triggers that, when you are honest, can support you in creating a life that you really want. When you balance your life which really means focus on the wholeness of you, you can create amazing results and feel great about it.
