What are you making room for in your life?
Are you so busy doing and being fully occupied by your life that you leave no room for simply enjoying the moment? Especially right before and/or after the Holidays, we tend to be exhausted from keeping up with all the festivities, the people, contacts and over doing that we forget to recharge our energy and relax. Calm and a real sense of inner peace doesn’t just happen! You need to consciously make room for it to come into your mind, body and spirit.
Being an active person who is committed to keeping a full calendar is one thing but if or when you allow your complex life to override your primary reason for living, you are setting yourself up for experiences and moments of emptiness and sadness. Stress and anxiety can override common sense and causeall kinds of complications including heart problems. I have just encountered a young woman, age 46 with a very young family and an extremely demanding and successful career. But just this week she was rushed to the hospital with a heart attack. After several days of repair and treatment she was back home but only to return because her stress level drove her back to the hospital. She wants to live but as of this moment she is not willing to let go of some of the things in her life that are causing her to take control over all aspects of her life. She definitely needs an attitude adjustment and a willingness to let go and ask God and the Power Angels for guidance and help. Too often, we humans think we are infallible! That is a big mistake! When a wake-up call comes crashing down on us, that is the time to take a step back and re-evaluate what the messages might be for our lives. Often those feelings are followed by the thoughts like: “What is my purpose and what is it I am supposed to do right now?”
Sometimes when we fill our lives with over activity and projects, it is a signal that we don’t want to deal with the emptiness that we are feeling inside nor even possible that we are the only ones who can get the job done. We even tend to disassociate from reality and a need to stay focused because the emptiness and sadness causes us to disconnect. For example, have you ever driven a car and forgot where you were going? You were not focused or completely grounded in your body and as a result you lost control of your direction and purpose. Believe it or not, that scenario happens often to many people because of a reduced power of concentration. Your state of mind is compromised due to the way you are feeling. It saps your energy and weakens your immune system. That is why I am always encouraging people to replenish themselves with time set aside that I call “Me” time.
We all need to feed our mind and our spirit just like we feed our bodies. Spiritual nourishment is vital for all of us if we are going to enjoy a true sense of calm, contentment and inner peace. It replenishes our energy very much like physical food nurtures and fills our bodies. Many of us have busy schedules, lives filled with heavy responsibilities whether due to our work load or family commitments but that should not be the excuse to allow any of us to weaken our internal resources, so our emotional self-worth is diminished. None of us can stand alone; we all need some sort of support system to help us on our journey through life. If you feel lost or alone, call in your Power Angels to come to your aid. All you have to do is ask and they will help you.
I need to be in nature. It is through the beauty of the Earth that I easily replenish my spirit and fill my mind, my thoughts with loving and healing feelings and thought so I can feel whole and complete. ideas often come to me as I walk on the pathways through the woods, a park or even sit in my back yard and breath in the fresh air. You, too, can do the same. It is all about staying fully conscious and alert to what your mind, body and spirit need in order to feel whole and complete. I, for one, choose to live a full and joy filled life. that requires me to transform my life in a way that best serves and suits me.
I do believe that from time to time, we all have feelings of exhaustion, loneliness and even possibly a desire to zone out from reality. That to me is natural and normal; it is, however, when we remain in those states for any length of time, that we open ourselves up to creating barriers that perpetuate negative feelings and hinder our transformation.
You may not always enjoy the experiences that you desire but you certainly can have happy and joy-filled experiences if and when you open your heart and mind to seek them out. Opportunities exist for all of us—it is our duty and responsibility to explore different avenues that will lead to the right encounters and that will satisfy you and bring you a wonderful sense of inner peace and contentment. We don’t need to control everything in our lives in order to be happy; we do need however, to always allow time to replenish our entire being so we can truly enjoy all the experiences that are placed in front of us.
Life can be dull or exciting. It can be empty or full and it certainly can be happy or sad. We can make our life transformation when we tap into the energy that open the doorway to our hearts. We each get to choose daily which experience we want to have. Yes, it takes time to build the life that you seek but if you do not get started, you will never reach your destination. Once again, I ask you, “What are you making room for in your life?” Start today and find a deeper meaning for why you are here. I know you will be happy that you did.
