I read this this morning and felt inspired…
“Your Vortex of Creation, the Source within you (your Inner Being), is undeviating and dependable. When you make your way to your Vortex of Creation through that thoughts that you choose — you will always be replenished. A balanced, good-feeling life requires that you return often to drink from the Source.”
The Vortex, pg 182 (Esther and Jerry Hicks)
For the last month, if not more, things have been pure chaos…moving a home must be one of the most stressful things that happen in a person’s life. The act of packing up the odds and ends that make a home, deciding what to pack, what to store, organizing everything essential for yourself and the kids….has left me feeling at the mercy of the move rather than empowered or energized by it.
And I don’t know if one can experience what I have experienced of late and not feel stressed and drained by it all. The beauty of this stress is that it is situational…it doesn’t run deep. I know it is temporary and will soon be replaced by feelings of grounded security and familiarity.
And yet even with this knowing, I feel off….I feel disrupted by my current reality instead of focusing on the possibilities and what I have the power to create.
Reading the expert above from the Hick’s latest book, The Vortex, reminded me what now must be foremost on my list of to do’s….to drink from, or rather revisit my connection to Source. What does that mean in practical terms? It means consciously creating routine, ritual around the activities that fill me up with this feeling state. Specifically it is writing, reading and meditating – each activity serves a purpose of alignment with what it feels like to be authentically me.
Starting today I will commit to at least 30 minutes a day with this “work”. What I will then experience is a greater sense of balance, patience, joy, creativity, hope, faith, love and playfulness – the REAL me!
To think about:
How do you connect with your inner world? Do you have activities that you do on a regular basis that fill you up with positive good feelings of balance and joy? If not, what could be something you could start with today that could provide you with more of this in your life? Such activities could include: connecting to nature, sitting in silence, a hot bath, meditation, reading books that inspire (check my amazon recommendations on the right hand side of this blog), cooking, anything creative….
If you were to commit to creating a routine around one such activity what would it be? How do you think it would benefit your life? Write to me with your experiences!
