The Tipping Point - What you know could change your life!

     Do you ever feel like sometimes you have been working so hard to make changes in your life and nothing is happening?  You begin wondering if all that personal work to heal and transform was for nothing.  You are almost ready to give up thinking that life has handed you some raw deal.

     THEN  …. one small little thing you did; that one right thought or action suddenly changes everything and it is like the sun suddenly came out from behind the clouds and you are on top of the world!  

If this has happened to you then CONGRATULATIONS!  You hit the TIPPING POINT!

What is the Tipping Point?

     Webster Dictionary defines the tipping point as “The critical point in a situation, process, or system beyond which a significant and often unstoppable effect or change takes place”.    Malcom Gladwell popularized this term in his book “The Tipping Point: How Little Things Can Make a Big Difference.”  

     Most of us might relate to this phenomenon from a global or collective viewpoint but, in the vast world of your own internal universe and soul this “Tipping Point” is a critical place.  If you have been working to shift and get un-stuck in your life, move through a painful experience, or life transition you might easily miss this important part of the shift or transition if you don’t know how to be aware and look for it.  You could just as easily “tip” backwards to that old place of being stuck and fearful instead of that new place that you were working so hard to get to.

     The reason being is outwardly you may not even be aware of the magic that is going on within.  All you know is that life hasn’t quite shifted yet.  Or, there may be some things that have changed and you are consciously aware of them, but painfully you feel like you just aren’t there yet and you really, really want to be. 


     Everything is energy.  Everything thing within you, around you and including you is operating in the realm of energy.   Most of us now realize that in order to affect change in our lives we start by shifting, healing and changing things at an energetic level and then our world around us begins to change.   So what happens is that sometimes there is a lag between the shifts and healing that takes place in the unseen energy world and the manifested physical world.  This is often referred to as an integration time.  An example of this in the natural world of science would be the speed and delay of sound or light -- the event takes place before you see or hear it.   This is true when we shift and heal on an energetic level.  The healing has already occurred but there is a bit of a delay in the manifestation of the transformation. 

     When you are at the “tipping point” it would take just a few small conscious changes to cause the larger more significant change and TIP the transformation into place!  The hard part is you might not know you are there yet, because you don’t know what is going on in that unseen world of your Luminous Energy Field, but it is important to make those conscious efforts and changes so you can “tip” forward into what you want and not backward into the place you are trying to shift from.



  • You have been diligently working energetically and mentally on the issue or experience you want to transform. 
  • You are almost instantly and/or are consciously aware, catch yourself in the midst or just after when you participate in old behaviors, patterns and thinking. 
  • You find that you shift back to a good feeling place quicker and more easily.
  • You may have an internal argument going on within between the ego mind and the heart wisdom.  
  • You may notice the lack of logic in your behavior versus what you know to be authentically true. 
  • You are feeling an unexplained anxiety or fear even though your thought patterns do not reflect that.
  • You have a feeling or sense of being more of the observer in your life then participant.



     What is most important when you are at this tipping point is to be consciously aware that you are there.  These tips will help you make the right focused and conscious small changes to ensure that you TIP in the RIGHT DIRECTION!


  • At the moment of awareness that you are participating in old behavior and patterns.  Take a deep breath and acknowledge your thoughts.  Just like breaking an old habit the more you recognize and stop the less you will continue. 
  • Be patient and breathe! Let the energy within take a moment to catch up after the moment of awareness.  This will greatly shift the next manifested action to one that will reflect the higher vibration of the healed self. 
  • Keep the analytical ego mind quiet and the changes at the energetic level. 
  • DO NOT continue to tell the old story and re-hash it over and over either to yourself or others.
  • Tell your new story – the one of how you have healed and life is better; even if you are not quite there yet.
  • DO NOT over analyze, moan and groan about how you are not there yet.   
  • Mantras and affirmations can be very effective at this stage because it is more about the conscious mind then the energy body.  They will help to distract the ego during the integration of your healed energy field and your conscious mind. 
  • Recognize and Celebrate every small shift.  Consider a log, journal or a star on a calendar to keep track.  These references points of the small changes will show you how much you really have changed.  

     Change is never ever easy.  However, the right awareness and actions are the exact nudge that you need to TIP into what you have been working towards.
