Doing Laundry – Setting The Tone For 2007

I slept in a bit this morning. Last night, as I was going to bed, I turned off my watch alarm, which is normally set for 5:00am. As much as I wanted to set a precedence for 2007 and arise at 5:00am on New Year’s Day, I also realized that getting less than five-hours sleep might not be the best way to begin the year.

So this morning, when I woke up at 7:00 and quietly came downstairs, I considered what I would do with the brief window of time available before my daughter arose. Without thinking much about it, I passed by our “Holosync Station” a comfy chair beside the stereo. I ignored the novel I’m reading – the first in many months. I didn’t even think about turning on the computer.

I wandered right on through the house and found myself standing in the laundry room putting a load of clothes in the washing machine.

As I did this, the thought came to me, “Doing laundry is my first conscious act of 2007. How do I feel about this?”

After a moment of pondering, the answer came back: “I feel good about it.”

You see, even though I didn’t officially set this as an “official” intention last night at our New Year’s Eve ritual, I realized that one of my intentions for 2007 is to keep my environments – home, office, car – cleaner, more organized and inviting. I want my home and office to be spaces that feel welcoming and nurturing. I want them to be places that support me and my work in the world. That has not always been the case.

So beginning this year with an act of cleaning, an act that I did not choose from a fully conscious place, feels like a good sign. It’s setting the tone and direction for the rest of the year.

My second act of 2007, which was very conscious, was to place money in our Financial Freedom Account jar. That again felt like a very good way to set the tone and direction of this New Year.

If you don’t know about Financial Freedom Accounts, pick up a copy of The Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind, or sign up for a free introductory telelclass.

What was your first act of 2007? If, looking back on the day, you have not set a tone and direction for the year that are aligned with your intentions, you might want to take a moment to consciously do something that does align your actions with your intentions for this New Year.

        Yes. I think 2007 may well be the year of deep cleaning for me! We’re in the process of de-cluttering our home and using Feng Shui techniques to bring in more harmony, joy and prosperity.
