Keep It Simple

“Keep it simple and stay in joy.”  ~Anna Grace Taylor

Keep it simple and stay in joy. Sounds like a good plan to me!  It is easy to become overwhelmed with all our responsibilities and obligations.  After all, we do wear many hats at once and although multi tasking was once heralded as a most prestigious feat, now it wears thin and is the cause of anxiety and the feeling that we can never get anything, let alone all of it done.  Frustration and unhappiness ensues.

It is necessary to simplify things. Take things one at a time.  When we are able to be successful handling something, one thing, it gives us confidence and strength to tackle the next thing, and then the next.  Simplicity helps us to understand that when we give our concentrated focus on something, we can handle it.  And when we focus, persevere, and complete the task, it provides a sense of accomplishment and that leads to feeling joy – about our abilities, our courage, our success, and about our self.

Set Your Vibration

Every thought, feeling, sound, or action from us contributes to the nature of the vibration that emanates from our body. The truth is that we can attract similar energy vibrations to us. Have you ever been with a group of friends where the joy is so infectious that your belly hurt from all the laughter? Or conversely with a friend who was sad, and you felt that sadness in your own heart and soul. It is so important to be mindful of our energy and what vibrational message we are sending out. Breathing is the first step to our becoming aware of our energetic signature. Just breathing deeply, fully, in complete cycles of inhalation and exhalation, will help get our energy moving. Another really helpful practice, is to each morning before you do anything else, wake up your body. Spend the time each and every morning to ground and center yourself. Whether it is a simple stretch sequence or a personal yoga practice, spend the first few minutes of each day becoming mindful of how you feel – body, mind, heart, and soul. Scan your body as you stretch, as you breathe… Notice where the kinks are, notice what thoughts are getting stuck, and breathe and move through it. Get your energy flowing. Set your vibration to receive joy, happiness, patience, love… whatever it is that you want to embrace you.

Life Ever-shifting

I have always loved kaleidoscopes, my eye taking in all the ever changing shapes and colors. Life is like that too… the patterns, the lightness and darkness of our days… All it takes is that twist of hand, that shift of perspective, the ever so slight altering of something to bring about a change. A deep relaxed breath… a stretch of the arms towards the sun… an opening of your heart… Life is ever-shifting, each moment offering an opportunity to change and alter our outlooks and outcomes.
