When you think of the tasks you have set for yourself today, how do they feel? Do they get you excited or do they give you, as life coach and author, Martha Beck, puts it, “a shackle on” feeling?
Recently, I woke up with a heaviness in my body that I couldn’t pin point to anything in my life. There was nothing that was really wrong. In fact, some pretty miraculous things have taken place over the last month. One of which being, I now have more free time in my schedule to begin writing my book.
But on this particular day, it wasn’t writing that was connecting me to a sense of wonder and joy. It was the idea of trying new things on my own, such as cooking (yes, I said it), dancing, and exploring places within the area.
As I started to imagine what I could do or where I could find information for these things, my mind stepped in and said, you better sit yourself down and write something or you’re going to waste this time! Fortunately, I know something my mind does not.
The best ways to accomplish your goals is to follow where the energy pulls you. This means, no matter what I am hoping to accomplish, if I’m following the longing in my heart that brings me relief, joy, or peace, then I’m going to reach those goals in a more miraculous way and save myself a lot of time and energy in the process.
And so what did I do? I did what I always do to stay connected to my Spirit-
Notice my emotions
Pray and ask for the truth to be revealed about this
Pay attention to any images or thoughts that feel lighter, more loving, or bring a sense of joy
Follow through on what I received
