Welcome to RT Times for August 2009 and a whole lot of goodies for you! I’m excited because lots of things are going on: I’m having a new website designed; I’m going to be in London for a FREE Open Day; and as you can see below in the Contents Section, I’m celebrating the birth of my new article series in Todays’ Therapist magazine.
If you live in or near to London, I really recommend coming to the wonderful free Open Day I am hosting with my friend and colleague, Theolyn Cortens. The emphasis of the day is on the balance between linking in with your soul and running a great business, and I’d love to meet you. I’m also giving 15 minute laser sessions so if you want a taste of how I work, come along and meet me there.
Warm wishes for a great August

2. RT Monthly Momentum Series
You will already have received an email from me about this — I’m very excited about it as in my own work I know how important this kind of thing is — the whole series is all about providing momentum to keep going, to keep focused and to bring into the light the stuff that holds us back from being as successful as we might be.
3. Featured Article: Putting First Things First: inviting your soul to
prioritise with you.
Have you heard about The PlaceMat Prioritisation Process? It’s an exercise from the book Ask and It Is Given, by Estherand Jerry Hicks, and it’s about how you organise your day. So if you’re someone who easily gets overwhelmed, or finds it hard to complete tasks, or to get started, or can’t sort out your priorities, then give this way a try.
The PlaceMat Process is so-called because it was first devised on the back of placemat in a restaurant. Here’s what you do:
1) Make a long list of what has to be done
2) Take another piece of paper and divide it in two.
Head up the left hand side Things I Will Do Today, and the right hand side Things I Would Like the Universe To Do
3) Looking at your long list of all that has to be done, select 6/7 things from that list that you know you are definitely
going to do that day. Only put on this list things you know you really are going to do (this requires a considerable degree of honesty if you are someone who tends to think you can always do masses of things in 5 minutes!). This side of the paper will include appointments and other pre-arranged meetings; and anything else that you really need to do that day.
4) Everything else from your original list goes on the side marked Things I Would Like The Universe To Do.
Bear with me here — try it out, because it is amazing what happens. What is really going on is that it helps you to focus on what is really important in that moment, and to also let go of some things that may feel like a burden. Those are the ones you are giving to the Universe. Now here’s the really amazing thing; for some reason it often happens that things on the Universe’s side get done without you doing anything. Maybe someone contacts you, whom you’d been meaning to contact. Maybe you realise that a task that you put on that side is irrelevant in the light of some further information. Maybe someone else does one of those tasks; or they have been resolved in some other way. Or maybe it’s because when you do this process, you’re coming from a place of inspiration, not being burdened with jobs; you’re feeling lighter in your energy because you only have a few things to be accomplished that day; and you will probably find that you have more energy as a result of this allocation of tasks. (All these have happened to me).
So The PlaceMat Process is not a to-do list, it’s more a not-to-do list! And is process of letting go and trusting. For me, this takes practice, and it might mean that for you too. It doesn’t mean you don’t have a to-be-done list or a reminder list elsewhere for practical reasons; but rather, as one of my colleagues said
“This process is about aligning your energy with what you want and letting go of what overwhelms you and then facing into your day from a place of alignment instead of being scattered or overwhelmed”.
The difference in the quality of your day when you are clear about what you want to achieve; when your energy is aligned with that; and when you have let go of being overwhelmed is amazing. Try it and see!
4. Mind Matters
Yay! Im celebrating the start of a whole new column in Today’s Therapist magazine (see www.todaystherapist.com). The first article is entitled Mind Matters in Business (or Get Your Mind Working FOR You Not Against You) and it’s always great to see one’s writing published, it’s different from the Internet. Also, I feel proud to be associated with a quality magazine like this and I invite you to take a look and subscribe, as there’s lots of other stuff they have to offer. They are relaunching next issue and going to a much wider audience, to include people who are in the health field but might not describe themselves as therapists, such as nurses, chiropractors, yoga teachers.
