I love this picture! That’s probably because I love elephants, studying about the Chakras, essential oils and LOTS of color.
Lately I’ve been feeling like I have more that I need to share. There are people out there that are searching for “something” and sometimes they don’t even know what that “something” is. Maybe they are just feeling a little out of sync. Not quite connected with who they are and their purpose. Do you ever have days, weeks, or months like that? Maybe it’s even years of feeling like “something” is just missing in your life. I’m suggesting that you honor that and move in a direction that will help you feel joy, inspiration and fulfillment. There are people out there that may need to hear from you. If we stay in our shell, then how can we share the light and gifts that we’ve been given? I believe we all have a sacred duty to fulfill our purpose on this earth and first of all we need to find out what that purpose it. That may take time and maybe we just need to settle in and be still. Listen to that inner voice. Overtime you will be directed to what it is you are supposed to do.
When you think about the word Meditation, does that sound to you like “What??? I need to sit still for 5, 10, or even 20 minutes? Life is just too busy for that! Too many places to be, too many people to see, just too much to do!” Or is more of a peaceful presence that resonates with you. If the later is not the case, I would suggest searching online for a simple meditation practice that might fit into your life. What have you got to loose? Some people prefer a guided meditation. Others prefer silence or the repetition of a sound or mantra.
Do you trust that you will provided what you need? Think about taking a few moments to just sit and be still. Breathe. Inhale, pause, exhale. Repeat. Trust that with silence your mind may be open to hear what it is that you need today. Maybe you need to serve someone else. Could even be a family member. But how will you know if you don’t stop and take the time to listen? Once this becomes a routine, your mind, body and soul will thank you.
Let me close by suggesting a few essential oils that you may want to include in your meditation, or stillness, practice. Place a drop or two over the corresponding area or putting a few drops in the palm of your hand, rubbing together and breathe in.
