Portals To Clarity
Is your lack of clarity creating energy traps in your business?
Over time, these energy traps can feel like cages.
Locking you into cycles of working faster and harder, instead of smarter.
Meanwhile, you already have the key to stand tall, unlock the door, and calmly walk away…
Just like an ancient eastern metaphor, where it’s said; the moon (your heart), quietly longs for the gaze of her lover, the sun (your spirit) to return.
Clarity is waiting for you to pause and turn your mind within.
Today, I’ll share 3 of these portals. Their effects are immediate, just like flicking a light switch… I consider opening these portals a rite of passage. Necessary for real success in life and business.
Concepts gain complexity as you shift into action. It can be challenging to keep everything (especially your mind), simple, clear and focused.
It’s helpful at times like these to know you are not alone. It happens to everyone on a growth path.
The key is to reign it into a clear and focused path forward.
Here’s three ways to harness your mind in from the void of endless possibilities, opportunities and what if’s.
Each gets you centered and connected in a unique way, for your brain to function as designed… generating clear and focused solutions.
Today, I’m sharing one portal to clarity for each of your three treasures: body, mind and spirit. They facilitate self connection, and used well – build your center of influence.
Three Portals To Clarity
Meditate… And Get Strategic
Getting strategic starts with listening to your heart and getting clear about what you want in life and from your business.
Meditation ensures your direction is centered around what you truly want. Not what others say or think you should aspire to.
Most people work hard all their lives, with only fleeting glimmers of peace and fulfilment.
How would you and your life look and feel if everything was perfect.
As you meditate on it, you’ll probably be surprised that what you visualize is not what you’d expect, and totally achievable.
Then, get strategic about aligning your business success with your lifestyle goals (so you don’t sacrifice one for the other), and develop your “Ultimate Vision Plan” to achieve it.

Build Your Physical Vitality
Did you know, when your muscles are tight through your body, they tighten in your brain as well, constricting energy (and information) flow.
And, multitasking burns more calories than your brain will tolerate. As your brain heats up, it starts shutting down in self protection to cool.
To restore clarity and energy flow it’s important to recognize the signs and learn how to manage your energy well.
- Releasing stress and tension, restoring your parasympathetic system to a relaxed state of rest and digest
- Strengthening your physical body, through a nutrient rich diet and building your vitality.
- Brightening your body, mind and spirit to a clear state of agile awareness.
Connect To Nature
Spending time in nature naturally awakens a yearning within for self connection and deeper understanding.
We have a wonderful symbiotic relationship with our surroundings that goes well beyond exchanging physical energy.
We benefit simply by spending time outside.
You can take this sense of self connection to an entirely different level when you get intentional.
I call on different elemental energies all the time for wisdom, clarity and solutions. See my article: The Tao of The Mountain – How to Harness GREAT Energy
For example, I often walk a forested riverside trail by my home. There’s a certain tree, I call my crying tree, but could just as accurately call it my clarity tree. It’s a large Douglas Fir. I consider it a Grandmother tree, because it’s grand, seems female (to me), and to hold influence in the grove. The roots create a rise, enhancing its prominence, and lately I’ve taken to openly embracing it and sitting under it, when I walk there.
I was drawn to it shortly after my dog passed. We used to walk the park often, and spent many hot summer afternoons swimming in the river.
I mourned for her there, and still sense her beside me as I sit in silence. Gradually a pattern has emerged that’s predictable and familiar.
The portal opening starts with a yearning for some type of breakthrough. I feel compelled to hug the tree and I can feel my internal physical energy resonating with the vibrancy moving through the tree trunk, stimulating my heart and sense of unacknowledged need.
The yearning builds to tears – I feel driven to articulate my question, (usually something along the line of “Please god, what should I do”). Shortly after, the answer emerges. It’s always clear, simple, do-able, and calling me out.
I know this is a simple brain function, the tree didn’t produce. But something about its energy, brings this yearning for clarity and connection, to the forefront of my consciousness, and out.
Trees and humans have a uniquely symbiotic relationship. We nourish each other. They rely on our breath and physical waste. We rely on them for oxygen and fruit.
It’s a yin / yang convergence. Like heaven and earth, which creates life.
Next time you’re out in nature and a yearning for connection comes up, take pause and quietly explore what comes up. With practice you’ll notice your own portals to clarity emerge.
