I camped out in the car this morning since Arlo fell asleep during the 2 minute drive home, and read about how to dig deep and follow my intuition. The exercise ended with time to sit still and quiet the mind, and just relax for a moment or two to connect with your breath – your direct line to Spirit. This is something I rarely get to do during daylight hours and the results this morning were amazing.
If Arlo hadn’t fallen asleep I would have rushed inside with a fussy baby and been greeted at the door by my dear friend Laundry. Instead, I was given the gift of a quiet and peaceful moment to myself where I focused on feeling the light within my heart.
The birds were chirping, and the sun was warm on my face. Before I knew it I was deep in meditation. I was present. My heart was ablaze and my vibration was strong. It was bliss. And then I fell asleep, my head nearly fell off, and my body jerked back into reality – but the bliss remained. When we take a few moments to breathe and connect to our Spirit, our vibration raises. We’re happier.
People are in such a rush these days that they are truly missing the beauty in life. In themselves. There are golden moments to be had if you just simply slow down for a few minutes a day. Close your eyes, feel the sunlight on your face, and breathe deeply. When people have a few minutes to spare, they can usually be found clutching their iphone. So put the phone away, and experience what it is to be in the moment.
A few weekends ago we were walking along the Humber River when we crossed paths with a woman reading a book while walking. “At least it’s not a phone?” I thought to myself. She then moved the book aside and revealed a smartphone in her other hand! I didn’t know whether to be appalled at her lack of presence, or impressed. I sent her love.
Take a second to admire just how beautiful our planet really is. Look around. Slow down. Breathe and connect to your Spirit – the real you.
