footnotes..... being still
From time to time i am nudged to re-post articles i wrote in the past...
today is one of those days.
as we enter the season of Yule & closer to the winter solstice..
i often tend to ponder, to quiet self, to tuck in & just be,
listening to the sounds of nature, of my own inner voice...
my creative nature loves to write, draw, paint, sew..... i spend time reflecting on the past busy season,allowing myself time to re-new, recuperate & i also tend to evaluate where i am on my path....
currently on Facebook i am in the midst of facilitating a group doing a chakra cleanse; a revisiting/exploring & journeying through each chakra... to cleanse balance & harmonize our being.
i am also doing 30 days of Yule with my friend Joanna Powell Colbert,
so re-sharing this previous post......
Today's words are about being STILL.....
During my life it took me a while to learn/remember how to be still.
Most folks lives are so busy, they forget how to be still.
How to just BE.
Often they flit around constantly on the go, constantly doing something, ...anything.
Like a fart in a skillet... they can't sit still.
Don't know how... think they Have to be doing, or going....
We are human..BEINGs..... take time just to be. Be still.
Usually it's some fear they have connected to a past event or issue, that pushes or drives them to be "running" from it.
Our society is set up so fast paced... always on the move... so much noise, it's hard to hear our inner voice.
hearing & KNOWING your own inner voice.... not the tapes of your childhood!!! (ya know the "what if's & the shoulda woulda coulda's)
not the voices of your parents or grandparents.... YOUR INNER VOICE!!!
not the voices of society.... religion, politics, advertising, etc.... that all basically tell you in some way you are "NOT Enough" ...
those are not your inner voice.... when we are still... when we empty ourself of all the other voices....
then we re-connect to ourself, our inner wisdom.... this is the voice i speak of.
In the moments we are still, still enough to hear our inner voices, to hear our heart and soul, those can be very powerful moments, we can learn a great deal, we connect to our inner senses and can take in so much beauty, so much wisdom....
I invite you to take time each day to really truly be still... when you do, you are able to let go of so much that really isn't required , all the extra baggage that we think we need. All the stuff.... have you ever noticed lately how storage units, and storage containers are becoming a big business.... what are we doing with so much stuff... it takes us away from what is real.
being still brings one back to the basics...
being still assists one in simplifying
being still reconnects us to a heart and soul level... where we can let go and be "real".
The still point... where our soul speaks our truth.
Remember ...just be, be still.
I wish you peaceful content quite moments of stillness.
