Downtime

My internet connection has been down all day, which surprisingly is why I have time to write this blog. (kind of ironic) But the month of May was not a balanced month for yours truly. I traveled to Australia (in too short of time period to adjust either way) and just had too much going on in all areas of my life. I knew I was out of balance, however for some reason I couldn’t seem to slow it down. I kept saying “next week will be better”. Well now it is official, this month of June is better! I am returning to “normal” and bringing myself into alignment again. Why did I let myself get so out of whack, primarily because I was experimenting with time and how much I could pry in, but also working on my ever present lesson of boundaries and saying no. I do learn a lot from my slides out of bounds, so I am grateful when I can return to myself and see the other end for what it really was.  It also reminds me how good it feels to be in balance and encourages me to stay there.

I can’t say I have found downtime yet. I am still working on it, but I now understand why I need it. The idea that our whole energy system can just go, sleep, go, sleep is not how we were built. We were designed to follow a cycle, a more gradual coming online of ourselves and a more gradual return to rest. The bell curve of our energy rather than peaks and valleys, is key.

Without this down time, we don’t have time to collect ourselves up, reflect on what is going on, or listen to our subtle energetic messages within us and around us. It is like being able to see the scenery, it can only be done when you slow down enough. That doesn’t mean you always stop, you may have to go quickly to get to the place you want, but then slow down and enjoy it.

Insightful Inspiration

Time for some scheduled downtime. Give yourself some time to just stop and be. Time to rest, take inventory on how you are feeling and reflect on the gratitude for all you have done (or survived). Downtime can be whatever you want, as long as it slows you down enough that you can pay attention and feel rejuvenated afterward. Give it a shot. As always, I encourage you to share what you do for downtime. It might encourage someone else. Share on my Facebook page at www.facebook.com/insightfulinspirations.

Trying not to try

I am still coming up against myself trying not to try. Relaxing into your life and allowing it. It is easier said than done and sometimes I find myself asking "how will I keep going if I don't have desire to do so"? Many of my clients over the least month have been getting this message as well... to just relax into it and release the effort.  As we "try" we limit the potential of our lives. We limit it to only what we believe and expect is possible. If we open ourselves up to the possibilities, amazing things can happen. I understand this, but never the less, still encounter this issue time and again. My evolution process brings me to that saying, the more I know, the more I know I don't know. I was watching a Himalayan Yogi on YouTube discuss the issue of just the act of desiring enlightenment, still keeps you from it because your ego is attached to the desire.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rrw7bE_a4NY

The thing is, as we follow our spiritual practices, isn't that effort as well? I struggle with how much to push myself into my own studies of these things. I don't want to stop, but I also only want to do it when it is effortless and fun. I no longer seek to understand things the way I use to. I allow myself to gently go where I feel guided to go, and change course when it feels right too, even if I have learned it "all". This has helped me relax into this space further, but I can still feel the tug of the world on my "expertise". Clients and potential clients wanting to know where I have studied, what I have done, etc. Some how this information make me more qualified. But reading, learning, studying doesn't help me find the true meaning of these things. It is only when I relax into it that it comes to me.

Insightful Inspiration of the Week

Explore this concept for yourself a bit futher. I have talked about this in the past, but this is something that is really hard to know how to do, because you just have to experience it. In order to experience it you have to allow it to come in. But how do you do that without effort? So this isn't a "to do" or a contiplation this week as much as it is to just spend sometime with yourself on this topic. What does it mean to you to try? What if you didn't try? What would happen? Probably not what you think. See if you can just be still with yourself once a day and relax into who you are. Even if it is just for five minutes.

As always, I would love to hear what you think. You can post your thoughts on my facebook page if you would like. Insightful Inspirations by Leanne is the name of the page.  Let's learn from each other.
