The Beauty of Doing Nothing

This post may seem like a a counter intuitive post, but let’s talk for a moment about the beauty, and even importance, of doing nothing. 

Modern society tells us in order to be successful we have to work nonstop. Taking breaks are signs of weakness. But I’m saying forget all that. When we need to take breaks, we need to take real breaks. And that doesn’t mean going on your phone and social media for half an hour. I’m talking about unplugging. Doing absolutely nothing. 

I just woke up from a long and unexpected nap and I don’t feel the least bit guilty about it. Yes, I have lots of work to catch up on, but without stopping when it is needed, we are much more likely to burn out; and then comes the crash and burn. 

Busy work can be done even when tired and burnt out. But if you are looking to go beyond busy work and past the rat race, you need as much of yourself as possible to be able to create that. Your well cannot be empty. Sometimes all it takes is a little bit of doing nothing to fill it up.

Grateful Heart

I’ve been posting less because I’ve been absorbing more. But I will be writing and creating more vlogs in the coming weeks now that I’ve arranged my schedule to free up some of my time.

Tonight I just wanted to share how grateful I am lately. I’ve truly been able to see with a clear heart how blessed I am. No matter what uncertainties life is throwing at me right now, there is still so much to be grateful for. And a grateful heart is a much healthier heart, not just in spirit, but literally and physically. 

All of you have at least 3 things to be grateful for. Try your best to let that gratitude take over your heart. With each heart beat, that grateful energy will improve your heart chakra. Any improvement in energy will help you, even during hard times.

Sleep well everyone. Sweet dreams, and peace. 

Awareness and Acceptance

The difference between those suffering from anxiety/depression, and those who are winning the fight from these dark shadows, is awareness and acceptance. Only when you are aware of the problem and accept the hard truths about it, can you then have a foundation to start from, to keep fighting another day, and to become victorious! 

4-18-17 Don’t Get Stuck on Stupid

It’s easy in this day and age of social media, especially Facebook, with so much news and information, real or fake, good or bad, helpful or distracting, to get stuck on stupid. There is just too much information that streams through while you are supposedly “keeping in touch” with people via social media. What you often keep in touch with is an overload of information, an overload of negative news and then with that, an overload of anxiety and stressful thoughts. It’s easy to get stuck and feel mentally paralyzed in fear, anger, or numbness. 

Try to be mindful of how much time you spend allowing yourself to be open to so much information. I have this bad habit as well. As if I need to fill my head with more negativity! I’ve just recently learned to throw out negative thoughts that constantly stream into my mind for no good reason! The last thing I need is more fuel for them! 

Whatever you see or hear, process what you’re feeling, but don’t get stuck. Stay focused, move forward, push on, and if possible, take action for or against what has you potentially stuck, especially if it can help in a positive way. 

4-12-17  Truly Good Intentions

Keep Your Intentions Pure. The road to hell paved with good intentions are usually made up of good intensions that got diluted from other, not so good sources.
Even if the starting point was good, you have to make sure that it remains as pure along the way. Any tinge of bad or negative intentions, including selfishness, will pervert the purpose and disrupt the outcome. If the true purpose of an idea or action is to help people, but the root of good becomes poisoned with selfish or greedy intentions, the idea or action will end up hurting people. Do not lose your battle with negative human nature. Keep your intentions in line with the Divine Connection. 

4-6-17 Love, in any Condition You Find Yourself In

All day today, my empath self completely took over. With all the things happening, especially with the attack in Syria, I have been feeling the weight of the world. Praying for everyone suffering, crying when no one could see me, coming home and sitting in a catatonic state just trying not to slip further into depression. 

Some days are like this. I don’t have the answers to my questions. All I can do is love. Love, even in the condition I’m in at the moment. Hug my family a little tighter. Appreciate those around me, especially those who are also empaths whose hearts are breaking in unison with mine. 

Naysayers will say that it doesnt matter, but I’m here to tell you, keep your hearts strong. Love is the most powerful energy of all. It is the most powerful strength we humans have. That energy will effect the rest of the world. It is all a ripple effect.

Believe me, I know it feels useless, and it’s so easy to feel helpless in these times. But collectively, our energies of love, no matter what condition we are in, makes its way around. We are all connected. So keep loving, everyone, no matter what condition you find yourself in.
