I was watching a video recently which spoke about “incompletes.” It mentioned that anytime we have something we’ve been meaning to do, but haven’t yet, that this unfinished to-do list item pulls on our energy.
For instance, the pile of dirty laundry on the chair in my bedroom pulls on my energy just a little bit every time I walk by and think, “I need to fold that.” And the junk pile I’ve been meaning to take out to the storage shed in my backyard owns a tiny piece of my energy. Each time I see it a little energy is lost, rather than taking care of it and clearing my mental space.
One of my favorite mentors, Joe Dispenza, touches on this topic too. All of the projects we have going, things we intend to get done, and to-do list items we’d just rather not deal with are pulling little pieces of our energy.
There are different ways we can take our energy, and our power, back. We can clean up some of the “incompletes,” clearing them from our field of awareness as we resolve them and are no longer holding mental space for “someday” getting them done. For instance, at the beginning of my work week (the week when kids are with their dad), I like to get my home space back in order. I mow my lawn, fold my laundry, clean my kitchen, put all the kids’ toys away, and essentially just make my space a clean and clear container so my energy and focus can go towards what I’m hoping to accomplish in those weeks rather than feeling pulled by mundane tasks.
Another way to take back energy, is to fully drop into the present moment. This can be done through meditation, or breathing practices, or anything that brings us into very single pointed focus. When we become absolutely present in the here and now, with what we’re doing at this moment, we break energetic ties to all the things taking up our energy. When we are functioning with our full energy intact and in use, we are VERY POWERFUL!
We can get more done, we can hear ourselves and our intuition more clearly, and we have space for our natural creativity to flow when in this fully energized state.
Today, since I’m on this journey back to power this month, I took care of a few things I’ve been ignoring for a while. I folded my laundry, cleaned my bathroom and got my space to a point of feeling simple and decluttered. I cleared and organized the pile of yarn and notions on top of my bedroom dresser. I cleared off the little table in my dining room where all the kids’ crafting stuff tends to pile up. Lastly, I took a bunch of stuff out to my storage shed that’s been piling up on top of my shoe bench.
With this extra spaciousness this week, I hope to find more energy and bandwidth to put towards my more soul nourishing projects…. like the new mini mystery create-a-long I’ll be announcing in a couple days.

What are three simple “incompletes” you can take care of today in order to help clear your energy field and become a more powerful creator with more energy to put towards the things you DESIRE to focus on??
Remember! An incomplete can be anything you’ve been meaning to do…. from calling your Mom to say hello, to cleaning your kitchen, to taking care of lingering emails.
Miss Day 1? No worries! You can catch up on what my Journey Back to Power this month is all about here.
