A little while ago this lovely notion of not only slowing down, but slowing RIGHT down, came to me…often when I meditate, or am in a particularly clear headspace I’ll get mantras, thoughts, or ideas come to me that I know hail from wisdom higher than mine alone, and this beautiful idea was one such thought.
You see our ego likes to play tricks on us, one of which is saying stuff in a very glib fashion like ‘yeah- I’ve got this!’ when it SO doesn’t. Or ‘I’ve slowed down’ when it has only slowed down a little, and definitely NOT enough…the thing is, fear/your ego doesn’t want you grow, so it will try and cover over the cracks, and stop you from really doing the work of developing yourself. It will say ‘I’ve already slowed down…’ for example, but when you lean into slowing RIGHT down…this kind of action goes beyond fear and ego and into a truly loving, super chill space…
One of my all-time fave questions to ask myself, and teach others is: ‘what does my soul think of this?’ because it taps you into your own inner wisdom, and of course one of the helpful aspects of your soul is it’s never in a rush…it has (and acts as if it has) all the time in the world…
And the more you separate yourself from this, the more you’ll experience stress in your life; whereas the more you align yourself here the calmer you’ll become.
Less haste, more speed is so steeped in wisdom. Slowing down not only feels good, but it benefits you A LOT. When you not only slow down, but slow RIGHT down, you send a powerful message…to your own brain and body, and also the universe too. You say stuff like ‘I hold the belief that all is well’, "‘I’m at peace with what is’, ‘I don’t believe anything is broken right here, right now.’ and so on….
And THIS is so powerful because when you’re sending out this kind of vibe, you’re not fighting what is, you’re in an innately positive place, and from here you’re super attractive to all the good stuff you desire…
The more you slow down, the more you chill. Then in turn, the more you align with your own soul and inner wisdom. And the more you do this the better your life feels and the better it goes. There’s just S0 -MUCH-POWER-IN-SLOWING-DOWN.
I’m excited for you to tap into the power of ease with a little more awareness and see where it takes you!
With so much love,
