Transition and Peace

How do I change?
Is peace really possible in my crazy life?
Where do I begin?

Dear One, you are a child of the universe and always, always have help awaiting your call. You are never alone, you are always loved and anything is possible for you. Anything.

Begin by taking a moment. And in that moment, a deep breath; a releasing breath. And settle into your physical body. Feel your feet firmly on the ground. Breathe out your stress, your anxiety and feel the strong connection you have with Mother Earth. A connection so strong that it is difficult to even lift up your foot. Breathe.

Now through that connection begin to feel the energy rise from Mother Earth up into your body. Through your feet, through your legs and up. Solid grounding energy. And with that energy comes strength from the Mother. A solid foundation upon which to stand. On your in-breath, allow this energy to rise within your body. On your out-breath, send it back into the Mother through the soles of your feet. In and Out. In and Out. Can you feel the peace settling in?

If you do this at different times throughout your day, the frenetic energies around you will not affect you as they often do. This need not be done for more than a few breaths. And are you not breathing anyway, unconsciously? So be mindful of your breath, your breathing , and see how this will change your way of being.

When you become whisked up in the frenetic energies around you, there seems nothing solid upon which to hold. Like a leaf in a storm, you feel as if you will be blown away without direction. And indeed, many times you do just that. So begin to take back control of your life with your breath.

And as you practice this breathing, you will be better able to focus. You may notice a part of your body which needs attention, for you are more fully present in your life. You may begin to realize the stress points in your daily life. Once you are more aware of these, you are in a better position to make a conscious change in how you walk through your day. But you must want to make a change. It begins with you. There is work involved, and yet the results will be instantaneous. They may not be long lasting as you may fall back into your old way of being. Which is why you will have to make a conscious effort to begin this transition of a new way of walking through your day.

Ask for help. Give yourself a moment in time to breathe. Are you not worth a moment in time? This is the beginning of your transition to a new way of being. The world around you may continue to be frenetic and out of control. But there you stand in the midst of the storm, quiet, solid, connected. In your safe and sacred space within, alone with your breaths. In and Out. In and Out. In and Out.

And it just takes a moment. Give yourself that moment. Start small with just a few breaths.

This is just the beginning. Learn to shut out the world in order to center yourself and replenish the strength within. It has always been there quietly waiting for you to take it off the shelf and use it once again.

Take the first step.
Do it now.
What better time than right now to begin to change your life.
