Isn’t it wonderful when you’re in the flow? Work is a breeze, and nothing fazes you. You stay clear and focused. Your alertness helps you respond to setbacks and surprises without being thrown off course.
But then, there are those other days… sometimes lots of them! You’re so tired. You’re cranky and feel caged in, and whenever you embark on a task, it feels like you need way more time than you have! (That’s because when you’re overwrought and out of sync, projects get snarled, taking you twice as long.)
What If You Possessed a Secret Weapon Against Overwhelm?
Imagine turning any “off” day into “on” day – moving in harmony with time and releasing overwhelm! You know deep in your heart that there must be something you can do – but what?
Well, I have developed an approach that I’d like to share with you. The good news is, you already have a secret weapon against overwhelm, and all you have to do is tap into it! It’s like an electrical current, and I call it Time Energy™.
Time Energy™ – 5 Phenomenal Facts About Your Inner Powerhouse
When you realize just how groundbreaking this approach is, I believe you’ll agree: Its potential is nothing short of life-changing!
1. Time Energy™ is all yours.
Time Energy™ is you, harnessing your power to make the most of your moments. It’s refreshed and revitalized, like a rechargeable battery, by each resourceful and decisive time choice you make.
2. Time Energy™ is inexhaustible.
In the same way that you can’t run out of wisdom, the flow of your Time Energy™ is never-ending.
3. Time Energy™ grows as you use it.
As with wisdom, the more frequently you draw on your Time Energy™ to empower yourself and make sound choices, the stronger it gets. Your Time Energy™ is a constellation of disciplines, insights and strengths that evolve, broaden, and deepen as often as you use them. Do you see the potential?
4. Time Energy™ is synergy.
Your Time Energy™ amplifies as you coordinate your skills, experience, and wisdom. Think of muscles that work in unison to power you forward. As you strengthen each muscle in relation to the others, your capacity grows exponentially! By bolstering each link, you create a sturdy chain. (And how you identify the spots in need of some firming up is a topic we’ll explore down the road.)
5. Time Energy™ needs you to activate its power.
Here’s the key to your Time Energy™: Abundant energy requires abundance thinking.
So, when your energy deflates like a punctured beach ball, view that, not as a problem but as a cue! It tells you that you’re temporarily locked into scarcity thinking. And the way out it to look within. With practice, you’ll be able to simply say, “I choose Time Energy™” like a mantra to quickly access your powerful and abundant inner reserves.
Notice how your Time Energy™ feels whenever you’re in the flow. Welcome it like the good friend that it is.

Here’s a tip about overcoming overwhelm with an energy shift.
You see, there’s no need to put up with overwhelm for another minute. Great things can be accomplished in tiny steps, as long as your energy works for you, not against you.
So here’s a productive path you can follow. All you need for this journey are your insight and reasoning, working in harmony.
TIP: Time Energy™ is Mobilized Energy.
Isn’t accomplishment wonderful? It is the concrete reflection of how you respond to your own call to action. When you mobilize yourself, you exercise decisiveness on the highest level. You manifest your intent, and your world changes for the better.
ACTION STEP: Visualize, Mobilize, and Energize.
Chances are, you mobilize your Time Energy™ pretty effectively in some areas, sporadically in others, and in some areas … well, let’s identify your stuck places right now.
Visualize a situation where you often feel overwhelmed in your day, and let your intuition gently support you. Picture yourself finding a quiet place to relax for a few moments. Then envision your progress through the rest of your day.
Notice your frame of mind as you move from one activity to the next.
Look more closely at the place where overwhelm deflates you. Remember, a stuck point is a treasure chest of energy, once you unlock it!
Use this visualization to make note of each stuck point where you’d like to mobilize yourself and access your Time Energy™.
Now let’s unlock one of those treasure chests. Revisit one stuck point, and ask your intuition what impedes your confidence and clarity. Take special note of your self-talk using these prompts:
- What message do you give yourself?
- How does this affect your progress?
- Jot down what you learn in a sentence or two.
Now, chunk the problem situation down into bite-size pieces. What change will restore your positive energy? Remember, no beginning is too small!
Using what you’ve learned, next mobilize yourself and your energy by creating a focused action step. Then:
- Take that step.
- Track your results over time.
- Validate each and every success!
Once your first action step begins to restore your energy and flow, select a second step by referring to your visualization. It’s so rewarding to feel how your confidence and competence grow, each time you tap into your inner Time Energy™!© Copyright 2012 Paula Eder, Ph.D.
