Living a more structured Life

vals-rosesmbfeb2017

We need to use our time here wisely and efficiently. We need to be consistently adding to life, taking initiative to grow and discover more, to deepen our understanding. Life is a precious opportunity.

Life is so full of distractions and noise and we seek them out as if we need them. This has just become an unquestioned habit. It’s great to ask yourself do I really need the radio on – the content may be interesting me but is this the best use of my time now? Noise and distractions rob us of the sense of space and time. When you’re tempted to turn on the TV and flop down in front of it, ask yourself is this really relaxing me. What else could I do with this time? Allow your mind to reflect on this.

We need time to be still, to be silent, to reflect.

Just think each of us has 168 hours to fill in the week.

What do we do with this? How do you use your time? What are the distractions in your life? What are the time wasters?

Journaling Exercise:

If you were to divide your day like a pie what gets attention and how much attention? What gets left out generally or almost completely?

What are the time wasters?

What changes would you like to make to this pie?

What do you want to include in the time available to you in each day, in the week?

To include something more you very often have to sacrifice something – what might this be for you?

What surprised you as you did this exercise?

Watch that victim feeling that might arise – a sense of not having any choice, the feeling that this is all too much. Don’t give into that.

Look at what you have written and ask your Higher Self and Spirit to enlighten you as to what will help you to have more order and structure and how you will fit in time to be quiet and still, meditate and journal and plan. Generate personal power and feel strong.

Silence

Silence truly is golden. It is nourishing. It is essential. In the silence we can connect, centre, listen. In the silence we can begin to hear that “still small voice” within – the voice of Spirit, of our Soul.

So many think they should be socialising, generally in company and chatting.  They think this is the right way to be – there’s something wrong with you if you want time on your own, if you want to go to bed early, or have a quiet night at home on your own, or don’t want to go to a particular social event or not drink alcohol.

Spending time with others, being in relationship, is very important but, so too, is time alone. It’s all about balance. It’s also about learning to be true to yourself and not going with the crowd – feeling wrong if you think differently.

So much of life can be filled with distractions. So much of life can be numbing out.  We waste a lot of time.

In the silence we can begin to hear that “still small voice” of our Soul speaking to us, loving us, guiding us. This is our compass in life. This is where we need to be checking in – not with what others think or what the world tells us is important if you want to fit in, be cool, be liked.

Take time to sit in silence. Feel the stillness.

Take time to sit and quiet your mind. Slow down. Breathe. Become conscious of the inner you.

Light a candle and sit in silence, stillness, peace.

Find time in your day to play some uplifting music and feel the vibrations of the music touch your Soul.

Take time to be in Nature – walking, gardening, or just being out in Nature, connecting with the beauty, the wonder of our earth and world.

Make space in your day, in your life, to be still, to listen, to connect. “Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks within, awakens.” Carl Jung
