In the last few months, I’ve had time to realize the huge difference that subtle energetic shifts can make. It’s sometimes hard to realize that you’ve been pushing yourself too hard in some areas, and starving yourself in other parts, at the same time.
Here are some suggestions to develop (or continue to develop) habits of checking in with various aspects of who-you-are, all of you, your full life, daily. It’s kind of like taking a very close look at a bug you may never have thought to look at closely before…
If you are an intellectually minded person, see if your thoughts and intellect have been dominating every other part, or are your thoughts and logic working in harmony with what your physical, emotional and spiritual needs are?
If you feel more identified and ruled by your physical needs, has your emotional or spiritual health suffered as a result of a dominance of focus on the body? Is your physical body in balance, or is it constantly being pushed to perform longer harder and faster?
Has your emotional self, such as fears, depression, or even joy and pleasure, been ruling your life to the detriment of your health?
Hopefully you have find a happy balance, where your emotions inform your intellect and help direct care for your physical needs and direct you where to find the ways to replenish your unique spiritual wellspring.
We live in a world that values external experiences, possessions and situations above most else. How often do we check and adjust to what our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies are asking for? Remember too, the other important Beings in your world, to check in and listen to our animal companions’ silent and not-so-silent communications, or the way that the plants that grow in our backyards reach out to inform us of wisdom they have acquired, as the evolutionary elders to the human race. Plants have provided some of the most fun and wise and loving conversations I’ve ever had!
I can pretty much guarantee that as you start and continue to develop this habit, you will make startling and profound realizations about your own health and well-being, along with that of the planet and all her creatures. This will benefit everyone around you, the world at large, and your animal friends.
Be well everyone, and if you’re not, please adjust accordingly and get “well” asap, whatever that means for you.
Wishing you all the Grand Peace of Nature, the kind that overtakes you and becomes an experience of sacredness that is unsurpassed anywhere.
With Love, Karen and the animals
