Wow………the darkness is coming earlier and earlier. I can feel the “turning inward” energy. I have really been enjoying my early morning spiritual practice and I think that the season is part of the reason.
How would that feel? What would that look like? We wake up and have a fixed idea of what the day will be with our work and responsibilities. But what if we would wake up with a curious mind instead of an organizing mind……….”I wonder what this day will bring? I choose to be open to what this day brings to me. I choose to be open to what shows up for me.”
Would that move us out of our fixed minds? Our routines? Staying open to the day.
It is just a thought. An intention. A shift of focus. It could bring a pause to a moment. In that pause you might see something in a new way. You might say “no” rather than “yes” or “yes” rather than “no”. Staying open. There is a spaciousness there. A sense of possibility. A sense of wonder. Grace could flow into that moment. A creative thought. A thought of connecting with someone.
I would invite you to try this out. See if it helps you stay open to the magic and synchronicity of life. We never truly know what a day will bring anyway! There is a flow in moving through your day this way. Things fall away, things fall in……….but we just stay open. No need for re-action or upset………..just staying open to the day.
Let me know your thoughts! Curl up with a good book……..it is the season. Blessings, melanie
