Our topic for discussion today is on our thoughts. We all have them, constantly, and for many they can seemingly unwillingly and uncontrollably occupy our mind with an activity or quality that does not support our health and wellbeing.
Have you ever had an injury such as a sore lower back, shoulder, digestive issue etc that has hung around for a while? You may have had conventional treatment but it just doesn’t seem to heal. The reason why often an injury will not heal long term is because we haven’t dealt with the underlying root cause of why the ill has happened in the first place. Until the root cause is addressed the condition will never truly heal.
The message that we would like to finish this year with is that the evolution that is offered to us from choosing to heal and reclaim our health and wellbeing is the greatest gift that we can give ourselves. This reflection of living the fullness of us is also the greatest gift we can give another – offering the inspiration that it is possible and that they can choose it too.
The more we make the choice to discard patterns, behaviours, ideals and beliefs that no longer serve us, the more our body works with us to release those held energies in our body, allowing the space for us to express and live from our true essence, which ultimately brings us much joy.
In this article we would also like to offer further support for the “Silly Season” – many of you have shared over the years being affected by it.
Deepening the quality of our expression is a work in progress for all of us and can sometimes even be a sensitive topic when there has been a history of “holding back”. On that basis it is important that we are gentle and allowing with ourselves as our awareness around expression increases and our commitment to express more fully deepens as we may not always get it right in addition to experiencing some stumbling blocks along the way.
Expression comes in many forms and is not restricted to what we verbally say. Rather expression encompasses how we move, how we dress, the way we relate with others, how we write, how we talk, how we drive, exercise … the list goes on.
Transparency alludes to something being clear that enables us to see right through such as a clear window. We all know what it is like when the windscreen of the car is dirty and it becomes difficult to see outside. We may still see the road and the cars around us but there is a muddiness in the way that stops us getting a full picture.
Over the last few years we have been exploring the impact in our lives of making the conscious choice to be transparent – in our friendships, with our partners and families, with work colleagues and with strangers.
We are into March and we have had a change of season. Observing the change in season reminds us that life is never static and that there will always be change. What we have found is that the more connected we are, then life can have its ebbs and flows, yet we can remain centred and still amongst the busyness of what goes on without being affected by our external circumstances.
The more we focus on deepening our inner quality of being the more we are equipped to handle what comes our way in work, relationships and friendships. We can foster the deepening of our inner connection in every moment through our quality of movement.
It’s that time of year again, the silly season. December has dawned upon us and we draw close to the end of yet another year.
December can be a tricky time for many, school finishing, work being busy as we try to get it all done by the end of the year, festivities with Christmas parties, catching up with friends and family, the extra spending, perhaps later nights than usual, eating and drinking more.
What we have discovered is that there is a way of living where life flows freely, where there is space, ease, joy and a strong sense of connection with the world around us. When we are in this groove and can feel this lovely flow, this is a sure indication that we are living from our essence. When things feel hard, stuck or complicated, this is also a sure indication that we are NOT living from our essence and that we have disconnected from ourselves.
So what is our essence?
Our essence is found in that inner-most part of us which when we deeply connect to our body, offers us those beautiful innate qualities that we then naturally express in and from. These qualities as an example may be sweetness, purity, grace, playfulness, tenderness… and the list goes on.
Our outer world, the environment we live in reflects our inner world.
We have been exploring of late what it feels like to create space in our physical environment ie. our home and/or office and how this affects how we feel in our body.
If we come back to “everything is energy, therefore everything is because of energy” (Serge Benhayon), then it is common sense that as we let go of physical possessions whether that be clothes, CD’s that we no longer listen to, books that just sit and gather dust, this physical discarding reflects a shift within ourselves and brings about a sense of lightness and ease in our body.
Everything we say, everything we do, everything we think, everything we live carries and has an affect not only on ourselves, but on everyone and everything around us. What we leave behind from the quality in which we express something in is called an energetic imprint. When we open up to the possibility of energetic imprints we soon discover that there is a deeper level of responsibility for us to hold in how we live, a realisation which at times can rock our level of comfort and call us to make changes in our lives.
We leave energetic imprints everywhere and if we choose to we can become aware of those imprints, their quality and their effect on us and everything around us – this is natural and a redevelopment of energetic awareness.
