or moving so quickly that there is simply not ever enough time? I certainly do! I often find myself over whelmed because I am not taking time for myself. It is important to take time for yourself, to be quiet and become centered. This can be achieved in many ways, through nature, exercise, prayer, reading, resting and a daily meditation practice. Although I know that meditation Is very important, that it can enhance your life, health and overall well being, I still find it challenging to do, but with regular practice, commitment, it becomes easier and you’ll realize the benefits almost immediately. You’ll be more relaxed, feel calm and discover what is truly important in your life.
Find a special place and time for yourself, near a peaceful fountain, with just the sound of water, to infuse your senses and block out other noises. I have a beautiful and natural looking fountain by Elegant Earth, that can be inside, or outside, that offers a tranquil place to meditate… just hearing the water makes me more relaxed. Elegant Earth offers many styles for your home, or outdoor patios and gardens.
If your mind becomes busy, and you find yourself distracted, or making lists, just let the river’s water quietly splash over you and bring you back to your center… keep breathing. This is another reason that a fountain helps me, I can easily be transported to a peaceful place, near the water.
Here are a few simple things to keep in mind, as you begin your own practice.
Sit quietly and as you breath, feel the vibrant glow at the core of who you are,
Breath steadily, and let this passion rise in you with no aim, or intent.
Breath slowly, and as you begin to feel its heat, look at the simple things around you.
I hope that you enjoy your day!
