Feeding Our Soul

Staying Calm, Keeping Balanced, Allowing for Reflection

2021-11-05T12:48:49+00:00

As we start to get back into the swing of Fall activities (at least those of us in the Northern hemisphere are), let us remember to not get so caught up in all the various commitments and/or responsibilities that come along with this time of the year that may cause us to become stressed and overly busy. And although we have missed out on many of the fun things we were used to doing, many of us have also enjoyed the slowing down –and used the time to rejuvenate our mind, body, and soul.  And if you feel bored or listless, remember how uplifting feeling relaxed and "just being" is. "Just being" offers our mind, body, and soul the energetic space to recalibrate - without us even being aware of it. And it puts us in a state where we can reflect. Modern life has often led us to ignore the reflective and feeling parts of ourselves. Our forced slowdowns this past year and a half have given us more time than usual to be calmer, more reflective, and opportunities to "just be." Links to 3 companion posts are at the end. To be happy and feel good we need to attend to our body, mind, emotions, and spiritual connection – and it is the subtler parts of ourselves that nurture these. The subtler parts of ourselves are more in tune with love – with a connection to our True Selves – to others – and everything around us. They are more based on our true reality. Being in tune with love and connected to our true reality, we navigate life adhering to love's qualities: kindness, sharing, compassion, acceptance, equality, unity, etc. We feel empowered – not in a striving for power way (based on a false strength) but from a place of inner strength (based on our true reality). This allows us to embrace the concept of me-and-you.  Humanity’s history has been based on false realities. Of separate motivations grounded in fear, greed, competition – on me-against-you. Fighting for our survival became paramount in our existence. We were reactive, rather than responsive. Although today most of us do not have to fight for our physical survival, we have maintained the competitiveness and reactive states of that survival mode. This, along with the disconnect from our True Self, has created stress and uneasiness in our beings. This has translated into the business and getting ahead ways of navigating life that has become the norm for many of us. The reactive way of navigating life that we inherited from past generations causes us to aggressively approach situations  – often bringing in past issues or being influenced by unaddressed emotions from our past – rather than responding calmly and only addressing what is currently happening. Our business, competitiveness, focus on getting ahead, and our reactive states have left no room to connect to our subtler and reflective natures – that are so important to our sense of well-being.

July Newsletter: Feeding Our Soul, and the Concept of Enough

2021-09-28T19:08:35+00:00

Feeding Our Soul and the Concept of Enough is the message of my July 2021 newsletter.  Read the full message Most of us have gone through life without thinking that what we have and rely upon would be challenged. And being optimistic and feeling positive about the future is a good thing. It is a spiritual principle. The philosophy that our thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors create our reality is now a widely held belief that many of us live by – or at least aim to live by. However, recently something beyond our individual control has occurred – and it has affected everyone – in one way or another – whether our thoughts, attitudes, and behaviors have been positive or negative. And whichever way we believe this virus came about (by accident or on purpose for nefarious reasons), it has been a collective wake-up call. The Wake-up Call Regarding Ourselves As well as challenging us in many ways, this past year and a half have also helped us clarify – and value what is really important to us. It is like the universe has shaken us to our bones so that we look deep enough within to make the distinctions as to … What Truly Bring Us Joy, Feeds Our Soul, and Is Enough Our "what is normal" sure has been shaken up. And as we move forward with more freedoms, we will all likely … Embrace the People, Activities, and What We Missed the Most – with More Gusto. 🦋 How could we ever imagine that giving or receive hugs to anyone we want would be a distant memory and that having that first hug from a loved one would feel so good? 🦋 Our appreciation of freedom will sure go up as we can start to go out to eat and shop with ease, and go to the gym, play our favorite group sport, or do an indoor class – all on a whim and without restrictions. 🦋 Maybe we don't need to return to so many activities. Perhaps we need to embrace just "enough" of what was so that we feel the love and connection with others and that our outings and activities bring us joy – and do not add to our stress or list of things to do. Letting Go of What No Longer Sparks Joy or Inspires Us 🦋 As we have had time to relax and reflect more and miss what was, most of us will be able to more easily pinpoint what truly brings us joy and recognize what no longer sparks joy or inspires us. 🦋 The quiet time we have spent has allowed us to tap into our soul's true desires and has calmed the ego's clamoring for more of this or that – just for the sake of business or acquiring.
