Need a New Perspective?
I want to share with you a short technique to bring perspective to your life- look up.
Where is Your Mind?
My mind is often somewhere in the future, or in the past, and rarely in the present. It’s usually fixated on something; and when I say fixated, I should perhaps say, ‘fixed’, as in ‘not budging’. “I can’t believe she said that to me!” (past thought), or “How am I possibly going to be able to do everything on my list?” (future thought), etc. Or, my mind is scattered, going a mile a minute and everywhere at once.
Sometimes Breathing is Not Enough
Sometimes, breathing is enough to bring me to this moment, but sometimes I need something visual and metaphorical- like moving clouds. Looking up, I see fluffy, white clouds in a bright, blue sky. They look down on me and, compassionately witnessing my struggle with myself, seem to say, ‘It’s ok. You’re ok. You’re part of us, the clouds!’ It stops me in my tracks, and I take a big breath, and for one small moment, I’m in the present as well as I can be. I’m connected with everything on the Earth, and I smile!
Give this a try- it’s fun! I’ll be you find that it changes your moment, too. If you liked this, you can find out more about SoundHeals Holistic Health here.by
