Have you lost your internal timing?

This week’s Sacred Path card that was pulled is the DRUM card…This suggests that our rhythm is “off.”  This happens because we get so caught up with “doing” as opposed to “being.” We often keep pushing so hard, with the mindset that we have to work “hard and long” in order to get what we want.  This belief system can actually do the opposite. We need to take a break sometimes and let the Universe do its work.  It is important to balance work and play so we can replenish our energy.

Slow down this week. Go out into nature, look around and appreciate what is in front of you.  Too often we take things for granted.  See if you can connect with your heartbeat and get back into realignment with your body’s needs.

Try this exercise.  Follow the rhythm of your breath as you inhale and exhale.  If you start thinking about responsibilities and obligations, say to yourself, “Oops, I’m thinking again.”…and go back to your breath.  Do this for 5 minutes and gradually increase it to 20 minutes a day. It will help you remain in the present moment.  Remember, stress only happens when we THINK about what happened in the past, or what might happen in the future.

Slow down…Come back into harmony with your incredible SELF.

BE HERE NOW…Enjoy the present moment, be grateful, and rediscover the beauty of yourself and this world.
