Rest and Rejuvenate

Rest and Rejuvenate

That’s what Sunday is for – a day of rest.  When was the last time you took a day to rejuvenate?  To reactivate yourself and to treat yourself with love?

We find it hard to slow down sometimes.  We push through and keep going until we’ve nothing left for ourselves.  We get mired into the woulda, coulda, shoulda’s and our minds have no time to find peace, nor our bodies to be still.

Always there is something to do, more to accomplish, responsibilities to attend to and yet, when do we take time for ourselves to simply be?  To breathe, to notice the beauty in the air around us, to take in the majesty of nature’s wonder?

Please today, even if it is only for a few precious moments, gift yourself that time.  Stand outside with your feet firmly planted on the earth, look up to the sky and be grateful for this moment in time.  Meditate for a few precious moments with gratitude in your heart.

If you can’t stand outside, then be still and go within yourself.  Find a quiet spot for a few moments and close your eyes.  Imagine you are in the midst of a beautiful rainbow of love.  Hold your heart tenderly as you gaze around in awe of the beauty you see in your mind’s eye.  Give thanks for your solemn place in this world.

Especially on Sundays, I feel the urge to rejuvenate, even if it’s only for a few stolen minutes from the business of life.  For me, it is a need which if I have to, I schedule into my day.  It is like breathing for me.  A few tender moments in which I allow my body and mind to go still.  I concentrate on my breathing and mindfully embrace the moments of silence.  I become aware of the body which houses my soul, my heart and my mind.  I encourage all of the parts of me to unite in peaceful communion with God.  Sometimes I pray.  Sometimes I just talk to God and to myself.  But always, I silently give thanks for this day, for this life, for the potential to inspire others and to be of service.  I ask for forgiveness.  I ask for help with my Divine Purpose.  I acknowledge the good that comes to me and I reframe the bad into lessons that grow my soul stronger.

How do you rest and rejuvenate?

Shine On!

Rule Your Mind

ruleyourmind

“Rule your mind or it will rule you.” – Horace

Need I say more?  Giggle Giggle!  You know what I mean don’t you?  Stop worrying!  Stop fretting!  Stop allowing chaos to capture your mind!  You are the ruler of your mind.  When chaos enters, show it the door out!  Worrying about situations that we cannot or even those that we can control does nothing to help you, only to harm you for as you worry, your body reacts.  Your body gets agitated, cells become nervous as well, giving off negativity and allowing dis-ease to integrate itself into your healthy cells, thus making your healthy body sick.  The degree of sickness often correlates with the amount of stress/worry/upset your mind has been carrying.

I realize that there are situations that are worrisome.  I have endured plenty, as have we all.  But if you can take a few moments here and there during the day to simply allow peace to enter your brain, relax your body, hand over the worries to the Divine, to God or to your Higher Power, then you allow the cells in your body to calm themselves as well, in order to find a tidbit of peace in which to heal and to hold that place of health.

Worrying does not change the situation at all.  There is no amount of worry that will change any type of situation you are enduring.  Worry simply put, works against your health and your wellness of body, mind and spirit.  This is something that you can control dear friends.  You can show anxiety the door and shut it tightly.  Do not open the door when worry knocks.  Ignore it.  Stay on your path of health.  Keep your mind at peace.  Continue to see the good in your situation (and it may take work), but you can do it.  It’s possible to change the way you look at your situation simply by feeding it gratitude for the gifts you already have.

Problems with health, wealth and relationships can change when you change the way you are looking at them and reacting with those situations.  The changes happen in your mind and soul and then goodness can spill out into your body, your vibrational energy and your whole life.  What you give out, comes back to you.  The caveat is that if you are focused intently on the worry, the anxiety or the sadness, you are blinded to recognizing the opportunities for light, love and happiness.  In short, you may miss out on the health, wealth and connections you have in your life.

We are not all islands.  We are connected as energy to everyone and everything in our lives.  As I’ve been quoted before, “use your power for good,” and the rest will follow suit.  Be bright, be your innate good self and allow your essence of happy to perfume the air around you.  Raise your vibrations, release the anxiety and worry.  Embrace the peace which comes from within when your mind is tranquil.

There’s no magic pill, my friends.  There are only gentle reminders of inspiration, positivity and loving light that heal you inside.  Release, rest and regenerate for we only have this moment.  We are only given this present of now for sure.  It’s what you do with that present that counts.  Do not waste your gift on idle worry.  Rule your mind with kindness and loving affection.  You are all in my prayers.  As always, I embrace your loving essence and I give you mine.

Allow the precious gift of calm to envelope your mind, heart, body and soul today and everyday.

Shine On!

What’s on the other side of every fear?

freedom1“Ultimately we know deeply that the other side of every fear is freedom.”

~ Marilyn Ferguson

Sit with this for a moment.  Allow the quote to enter your mind, your heart and your spirit.  Do you hear it?  Do you feel that little ta-dum beat in your heart of hope springing forward?  Does your mind suddenly get excited to remove the fears from you in order to embrace FREEDOM?!  Does your breathing skip a breath for a moment in anticipation of what may come your way?  Does your spirit feel less burdened with the happy possibility that you just might heart, mind, soul, spirit and body decide to do away with fear?  Can you feel the energy blossoming within you?  Feel the buzzing of excitement?  Feel the idea of freedom begin to take root, driving the feeling of imprisoning fear from you just a little bit?

That’s how I felt when I sat quietly and thought about this quote.

I would love to hear what your reaction is to the quote above when you actually sit for a moment and contemplate it.  Does your body recoil back into fear of the unknown and uncertainty of how to deal with freedom?  Or does it get giddy in the anticipation that you might just take the first baby step towards freedom?

Please share below ~ I always enjoy hearing from you and how certain quotes affect us all!

Shine On!
