I have long struggled with the paradox of needing to slow down, no, to get really still, in order to move forward with my goals and dreams. How can I take the time to slow down when it seems there isn’t enough time as it is?
However, time and again, I am knocked over the head with signs of how this works. When I am able to set aside time to meditate or listen to something inspirational, something invariable changes in my day: a new opportunity arises or something falls into place that I had been working on. The law of attraction tells us that whatever it is we want in our lives, we need to create space for it, focus on it, and not allow ourselves to be pulled back into negative patterns of thought and action, or that self-defeating inner dialogue (I’ll never get that done, I don’t have the ability to do that, etc.) In order to create change, to grow, or to improve, we must always keep the result in the forefront of our minds, not allowing the thoughts or feelings of other possibilities enter our minds and bodies. Every one of our several billion cells holds an energy, a vibration. This vibration is affected by many factors: our environment, food we eat, other people, and even our thoughts. Knowing that our thoughts have a vibrational quality which is held in the body, has really made me think (pardon the pun.) Taking time to observe my patterns of thought in different situations is shedding some light on where in my life I may be struggling or not moving forward in the way I truly desire.
So, day by day, I’ll set my intention on finding stillness for a little time, creating space for endless possibilities.
Have a wonderful weekend filled with time to breathe, dream, and do what you love!
