Process of Elimination

I have many things to do at work today—things to write for other people. I’m typing away at this blog instead because it’s my way of working out my thoughts. I think if I write enough words, then something fresh will emerge from my currently fuzzy and dull mind. Something feels more real when I am writing. My energy circulates better. In the end, it will be better for everyone if I take a few minutes to do this now.

How do we create 100K Solar Bodies, or in more concrete terms, 100K people who get the book The Solar Body: The Secret to Natural Healing by Ilchi Lee AND sign up for at least a free account on That’s the question we are facing this year. Now our team will have a meeting to determine what we need to eliminate, reduce, raise, and create.

Raise and create are much easier for me. Eliminating and reducing are what I’m not so good at. For example, I tend to be a pack rat, although my hoarding habits are not as bad as some people I know. I am good at buying things, but not returning them. Eating is great, but the other end is  not as ready.


Energy needs to both accumulate and circulate.  If we don’t clean things out, we won’t have enough room for new things.

What should we eliminate from a team of people who are working toward a big goal? It could be anything such as a habit, part of our strategy, or a mentality we are holding onto. In the end, one of the biggest things we realized we needed to eliminate was our lack of strategy. Things tend to get ad-hoc around  here rather quickly.  I need to eliminate my habit if following that tendency. I think I will need to make a strategy on my own and propose it. At least it may spark something.

On a personal level, I’d like to eliminate some clothes from my closet and my tendency to be late ALL the time. I would also like to reduce starchy grains and dairy from my diet and my dependence on other people. That last one is the most important to me. It’s important factor for being a Solar Body—looking within for answers, trusting them, and trying them out before relying on experts.

Looking to myself first is a mindset I’ll have to remind myself of constantly. At least I know that if I use the Solar Body mind-body training methods I’ve learned, I will be able to adopt that mindset more automatically and naturally. I’ll let you know how it goes.

What would you like to eliminate from your life?
