Finding balance in life isn't always easy, for most people, it's a work in progress. There are many aspects to us as individuals and also many directions and areas to our lives such as family, work, creativity, fun, friends, study etc.
Often, one area of our life takes center stage for a while, sometimes to the detriment of other areas. Sometimes there's just too much to do, or too little. Finding our own pace, our natural rythm is important. Each person has a different pace and it takes introspection to find out what you need to do and when!
Following our heart, intuition, inner knowingness, takes practise and then courage but ultimately leads to a richer, more fulfilling life. Sometimes we can't always plan everything but instead it can be helpful to go within and find your own voice in your heart, telling you what the next step is...
Sometimes we need to be busy, then still and peaceful, waiting for the next step to come to us. Having faith and trusting our natural rythm helps us create a balanced, healthy and happy life.
Taking time each day, even just a few minutes, can help us connect with ourselves properly and deeply, and often, this is a time when the next step is revealed. Taking life moment by moment is so important yet also difficult, as our mind wants to race ahead and know everything before it even starts.
So, take a few deep breaths now, and relax. Still your mind's chatter and check in with yourself. Ask yourself, am I in balance? What do I need to do to become a more balanced person? Listen to and feel whatever comes, the more you practise, the easier and more natural it becomes.
In future posts, I'll go into mindfulness, meditation and other ways to get more connected to your True Self, to hear your Inner Voice, Intuition etc. So stay tuned!
To sum up, take time to have an overview of your life, look to Nature, there are the seasons, there are storms, droughts, but overall balance. Life can be and should be powerful and deep, there will be ups and downs and if there is balance and harmony overall, then we're on the right track! Life has the potential to be varied and rich and by having faith and trusting our own natural pace, we become healthy, empowered people.
