Finding Balance

Life is busy and can be chaotic… we get an up close point of view when we really need to be able to step back from time to time so that we can see the bigger picture. We should not live in the past but don’t forget the lessons it taught us…. we should not live too far in the future that it takes us away from living in the moment. We have to find a balance between then, now and tomorrow. It takes putting distance between you and your situation to see the bigger picture. Take the time when things start feeling out of place to do that.  Step back and really look at what’s going on… in the physical form and mental form.

Daily Insight- Full & Empty

So I’m sitting here in the office and I keep feeling drawn to post some daily wisdom for the day. I pull out my cards.. shuffle.. shuffle.. shuffle… Two cards pop out if the deck together. I flip them over and this is what I saw:
opposites

Three of Water – Fullness
Enjoy the fruits of your labor. Make no rules of what should happen next.. enjoy what is offered and stay open for new surprises.

Seven of Earth – Depletion
Expecting something increases our chances of disappointment. Stay in the moment, live in the now. Allow yourself time to rest and be mindful not to project any negative thinking into the future.

Together they show you how you can be full and next minute depleted of all. Be careful that you remain in the moment and take that time to enjoy all the fruits of your labor.. even the tiniest tomato can be as savory as a big plump one… so enjoy what is offered and don’t throw away that fullness with expectations of what happens next…. allow “next” to come on its own time and for now.. enjoy the life before you.

It’s Time

wishIt’s Time….

There comes a point in your life when you have to let go of old ideas, behaviors and/or beliefs…

Throughout our lifetime many things will come and go as we need them… Be careful not to cling too tightly to any one thing in your life… when it’s purpose has come and gone we need to release it from our grasp so that something new can come in and help us in our growth and in our travels along this path.

I’m not saying give up everything you ever believed in … but more so ideas, beliefs or behaviors that are no longer suited for you at this moment .. this place on your journey.

It may just be allowing our ideas, behaviors and beliefs to transform…. The stubborn part of us may want to stick to what we have always done… but it is like this… if you get stuck in the mud and all you do is put your foot on the gas … spinning and spinning to get out … what happens is that you just get buried deeper in that mud pit .. there is a chance that it may finally work for you and the traction may find something to take hold of and push you out of the mud … but there is also a chance that it won’t … how long are you going to do the “Let’s wait and see” game?

So what I’m saying … is that it’s time to step back and take another look at where you are and what you are doing and what you are  thinking at this time… there is a change that needs to be made in order for you to get out of that mud and move on. So what are you waiting for? You already know the change that needs to be made.. don’t fear the road ahead… listen to that inner knowing and march on!

Many Blessings,
