Reawaken and Balance
In our daily hectic and busy lives it can sometimes be difficult to make decisions from a place of truly knowing what is right for each of us and our families. Reawaken your spirit and balance yourself. One way to do this is by allowing creativity into your life and reconnecting with your soul.
Reconnecting with your soul means accessing that place in your heart that is the very centre of your core. Your soul essence. We all can benefit from this, regardless of our religious or spiritual beliefs. Having balance and inner peace makes us able to function more fully as human beings, family members, and effective employees or business owners.
It doesn’t need to take up a lot of time if you don’t have it. It can even help to spend 20 minutes a day on yourself if you have small children and time to yourself is in short supply. And don’t feel selfish, time spent on yourself benefits your family and others around you as you become balanced, highly functioning, and truly present.
Or if you have more time available to yourself, you may be able to spend a one or two hour block of time on this. Do whatever works for you. And don’t feel guilty. Working on yourself now means that you will reap the benefits in both your personal and professional life as you begin with a balanced state of being, making choices that are truly right for you and your loved ones.
Simple meditation techniques can help you to attain a sense of balance and inner peace. The calmness that you get from beginning a meditation practice will benefit all aspects of your life. It will help you to take your next steps, and to neutralize some of the stress that you will be feeling as you evolve in different ways. If you don’t wish to try meditation and feel that it is not quite your cup of tea, try taking a walk in nature instead.
Simple Meditation Technique
Find a comfortable position, even sitting in a chair is fine, and take deep slow breaths. The breaths should begin and end in your stomach.
Say the following words to yourself in your mind, with each slow breath:
Breathing in, I know that I am alive.
Breathing out, I am grateful.
Breathing in, I know that I am here.
Breathing out, I am living in the now.
Breathing in, I know that I am connected to the earth.
Breathing out, I am balanced.
1. What makes you feel centred and balanced? Make a list of the things that help you reconnect with your inner core essence and help you to feel balanced. They can include things as simple as a bubble bath, or slowly enjoying a cup of your favourite tea while sitting in a quiet corner, just list whatever you have found that works for you.
2. Schedule it in! What are some times in your schedule where you can fit in an appointment to spend some time on one or more of these things? The length of time and the way that you choose to spend it are up to you. Schedule it in now in your calendar or phone or whatever system you use for planning your time.
