when life sucks…

We all know that life has a way of taking you places you didn’t want to go, bringing you things you didn’t want to have, and leaving you feeling broken and alone.

Life – it sucks!

…but only in the sense that it has a tendency to suck time, resources, energy and purpose.

That is why every now and then we just need to refuel.

  • Take a new class
  • Change our surroundings
  • Do something different

Often it is in that ‘different‘ that we discover who we are. When life is noisy, it tends to drive you, instead of you determining the path which you will take. I get it. February was that month for me – heck, January too! I’ve been soul searching, making changes, and trying to be still and listen.

What am I hearing?

Spirit longings

I will be sharing these with you over the next month as I delve deeper into what my spirit is telling me and how to hear what your spirit is telling you too.

For Today, lets start with just being still….

Find a quiet place – inside, outside, whatever works for you in your corner of the world. But preferably a place that you will not be interrupted for a period of time. no noise except for the murmurings of nature

Close your eyes – shut out everything except your inner eyes. Distractions abound for me…even in nature – squirrel! Need I say more?

Listen – This is important. You don’t want to listen with your ears…listen with your heart. If you can’t get to a very quiet place, try putting in some earbuds and listening to some soft sounds of nature or instrumentals. No words….those are distracting – squirrel. you only want to block out the noise of what is going on around you, not create more.

Complete quiet is of course best, but if that is not an option, or if quiet distracts you, the music might be necessary. As you practice this it will become easier.

As you listen, what words pop into your head?

Jot those down in a journal or on a piece of paper, no matter how weird they seem. Sometimes words will come and they won’t make any sense- write them anyway. Let them go as you write and then listen again. Try this for 5 minutes the first day and increase your time by 5 minutes each day if possible.

{do you need a new journal? I have some really beautiful ones in my etsy shop. You can visit that here}

Spending time each day in the presence of the Creator – Spirit to Spirit, will reveal things you never imagined. By next Monday, hopefully you will have increased your listening/meditation time to 30 or 35 minutes. Then check back here for the next part of the Spirit led journey.

May your Spirits hear the words of the Creator. Words of life, words of love

Words that will bring you closer to who you were always meant to be.
