stress - stressed in words

Whether because of the holidays or any day(s) – when we’ve lost our way, lost focus on the goal, the prize, our everyday internal “center” and personal compass of balance, calm and direction, how do we get it back?

Simply relax into it.

“It” was not lost.

Our human minds get too busy, too worried, too “stressed”, too something  . . .  and we lose our footing on a very eternal focused and straight path.

Life can be hard. It can be a struggle some days.

Stop. Quiet your racing mind and B-R-E-A-T-H-E.

Take a deep breath right now.

Innnnnn, and ouuuuuuut.  Just be. Just relax. Let focus, like a butterfly, land on you again. Then, take notice of it’s very sublte stirrings on your skin. You’ll know what to do.

Still not sure? One of the things I do that is really helpful when I feel lost or confused is decide on a very simple statement of what I want, then say, “show me how to do this, find that, figure this out… .” I then say “Thank you,” and let it go. The answer always comes.

Giving the answer, the solution no time-limit is very helpful too. Time limits create need, urgency and STRESS!!! Stress and urgency blocks our mind from letting, allowing the solutions in.

You must let go.

“If you’ve lost focus, just sit down and be still.

Take the idea and rock it to and fro.

Keep some of it and throw some away, and it will renew itself.

You need do no more.”

~ Clarissa Pinkola Estes, best selling author, Women Who Run With The Wolves

“Only when your consciousness is totally focused on the moment

you are in can you receive whatever gift, lesson,

or delight that moment has to offer.”

~  Barbara De Angelis

 

Let me know if you need more than these kinds of guides. I work with people one-on-one by telephone.
