Take a few moments to relax, quieten your mind and reflect on these words.
Following on from last month’s words from the classic book The Four Agreements, by Don Miguel Ruiz, we continue to slow down even when the world seems to continuously speed up.
When we actually focus on slowing down, our bodies start to relax. Our breath is more measured and restorative, which triggers a ‘relaxation response’ in the brain and when we practice this regularly, we start to exercise stronger personal boundaries, put ourselves first and say ‘No’ more often. We listen to our instincts clearly and strengthen the synapse between heart and mind and notice things that may have before, passed us by.
Ascending With Both Feet On The Ground, Jeff Brown
I’d like to share the wisdom of the king of self-discovery, Jeff Brown. Before Jeff picked up the pen, he was a Criminal Lawyer, he studied Bioenergetics and practiced as a Psychotherapist but in 2001 his call to write took over and he has since written seven soul-filling books. He uses Facebook for his spiritual graffiti, An opportunity to inspire, support, and connect with humanity. With a writing style that is unforgettably heartfelt and original, Jeff calls out to our inner knowing, with no holes barred, and reminds us of the magnificent life that awaits us.
This particular piece is about speaking your truth and makes me smile every time I ingest it. Let’s make a conscious decision this month, to say, out loud, what’s in our hearts?
We have nothing to hide and nowhere to hide it.
It just takes so much energy to bury our truth, and what can we reveal that hasn’t been another’s experience anyway?
Our secrets arent that unique. They are intrinsically human.
Let’s practice the arts of radical transparency and shameless self-admission.
Imagine truth circles in every community…”I admit…”
And then we dance.‘
