One of the things I’ve had to really look at this summer is how often I fall in to “DOING”.
The “to-do’s” that kept me going from morning until night.
The daily tasks to run my programs and my business.
The laundry and the groceries and the washing up.
Even in downtime I had to be doing. I needed to be reading that book, playing with Gaby, deadheading the petunias.
I forget that I’m not alone when I’m in DOING. And that’s when things start to feel (and often become) more of an uphill battle: where I’m working harder than I should, and I’m losing my sense of purpose and direction.
And things start to not work out or not feel right.
I’ve had to unhook from DOING because it’s the the quiet moments, the still moments, of receptivity when I can hear my guidance and allow the Divine to flow through.
It’s after those moments that things get easier. The guidance or inspiration drops in. My intuition sharpens. Synchronicity happens. And the Muses speak to me in their melodious tones.
And all of a sudden, things shift: I’m inspired. I’m guided. I’m moving forward again in a way that feels joyful and right. And things happen!
Does any of that sound familiar?
If so, then this month’s simple ritual + guided meditation may be just the right thing for you.
