Let go and be still. This phrase was inspired by several things in life, one of them being a client of mine who is challenged by racing thoughts about food, at all times of the day, what it’ll do or not do to one’s health, and how she looks; constantly wanting to “be” something in the future sense and then she can “be happy”. Sometimes in life we have to let go of control, let go of “wanting”, “wishing”, trying to force things to happen when maybe it’s not the right time, rethinking of past “should haves” and let go to accept the present moment to be still enough to listen in.
Being still is one of the most powerful things we can do to harness the present moment and to listen to our next move, listen to our intuition, and connect with our heart and spirit. Granted, it’s so hard for so many of us, myself included, to just “be still”. Meditation, prayer, and silent time in the morning is helpful (check out this blog post about that too). Challenge yourself this week to let go of thoughts and be still, to listen in. See how this affects areas of your life- Are you able to love with more passion? Are you more productive with your work? Are you able to practice more self love and gratitude? Are you able to be a listening ear for a friend in need? Are you able to eat more mindfully and take care of yourself? Are you feeling happier? Be still, listen in, the answers are already there.
Wishing you lots of love and beautiful vibes,
