Shifting the Energy of Your Outdoors

by: Janet L. Hall

Towards the end of April my husband and I anticipate the arrival of "our" hummingbirds migrating back from the south. We watch with excitement as our red azalea bush by our front door starts to bloom, which calls out to us, "Get ready, the hummingbirds are coming!" We scurry around, re-cleaning their feeders, preparing their much needed "energy juice", and start hanging their feeders, one of which is stationed outside my office window by which my desk sits.

The energies of our place is starting to "shift" as trees and flowers begin to grow and bloom; as the four b's: birds, bees, butterflies and bunnies start to appear in abundance around the yard.

The energies in me and my work start to "shift" as I become more "awake" with the arrival of spring, as it might for you also.

Regardless of whether you are at home, in your office or you're the CEO of a large corporation, I'd like to ask you to do something - a favor of sorts for yourself - it could be the most important thing you've done in a long time for yourself, your home or your business.

If possible stop what you are doing after you read this through and grab a pad of paper and pen/pencil and step outside. Now just stand there at the doorway and take three deep breaths, stretch your arms up to the sky and down to the earth and now really open up your eyes and take a look around.

Do you see anything in your outdoor environment that needs changed or your attention? From adding a sitting area, to cleaning up the gardens, to adding bird feeders to draw in free, live "entertainment" - - what do you; what can you; what will you add, move, remove, clean, fix or paint in your outdoor environment to improve the energy of your place?

Take your time and walk around the whole building and grounds and write it all down ... remember, you don't need to do it all now ... you are just making a list. Let me share mine for directly outside my office area:

  • Clean outdoor table/chairs - move to other side of building
  • Discard used molding
  • Spray wash under eves to remove old spider/bee sacs, webs and dirt
  • Wash windows
  • Check bush-birds might have "killed" it-if dead, remove bush and place a wooden or metal pole to hold bird feeders
  • Plant some flowers
  • Look into adding a water feature I can see from my office window

Once your list is completed (get a copy of my Spring Outdoor Energy Moving List at   ) the next thing to do is prioritize which items can be addressed now, which you'll need help with, or which you'll need to save or plan more for. Once you start the actual work (adding, moving, removing, fixing, painting, and cleaning) you will soon discover and feel the "shift" of the energy around your place, creating a positive and welcoming environment for not only yourself, as well as for others and wildlife. This is what it's all about ... connecting with nature.

Now, go back inside and stop ... until next time.
