It’s the first Monday of the month and of course that means I’m highlighting a Grail Challenge. This month, being the month of love and connection what with St Valentine’s Day creeping up quickly and all, I’m drawn to delve a little deeper into the notion of dealing with separation anxiety…
I’ve found myself immersed of late in various projects and attention grabbers, keeping me in the flow of my moment to moment joyfulness but then yesterday I stopped. It was for no reason other than I’d promised myself a complete day off to rest and recover and to do a drama detox from everyone else’s stuff… it was bliss, at least for the first few hours. I did the full self-pamper, mani/pedi, facial, body scrub, I ate lovely food, increased the water intake… basically did all the stuff that I should do to let my body know how much it’s cherished on a daily basis but I forget all too regularly!
What was I forgetting though?
You are the Wholly Trinity: Mind, Body and Spirit. I took care of my mind by giving it a drama detox, I took care of my body as above, my spirit though needed my attention and seeing as though your spirit is the essence of your soul, all the rest is just trimming.
Feeling anxious, finding my mind wandering into ancient personal historical drama and then into future potential dramas I have yet to create… finding my body becoming tense and demanding addictive behaviours to quiet the obvious void, it took me a little while to get the message… I was symptomatic of loneliness! You can be equally as lonely in a room full of friends as you can standing by yourself if you forget to come home to your Self. My soul was calling me to let her in and I had temporarily forgotten how to listen (and I do this for a living)!
So today’s challenge: spend 3 minutes every hour checking in with your higher self through meditation… your higher self is plugged into the collective, it is God and by embodying your whole self, you will never ever have to feel alone.
Principle 1: I AM God
Principle 2: I AM Detached
Principle 6: I AM Self-Full
