I subscribe to a Spanish word of the day. Today’s word really stuck a chord with me: el bienestar. It translates to: well-being; welfare; comfort. Over the past couple of weeks I have noticed a lot of inner chaos, an unsettled feeling, and a lot of heaviness. I have been feeling like there is too much coming in. I have been finding myself desperately wanting solitude, stillness, and silence.
At times when I get these waves of intense energies I feel like I am alone in what I am feeling. It can feel quite isolating when those around you aren’t sensitive to energy and don’t understand “feeling” your way through life.
the challenge is the external push to “do more,” “have more,” and “busy is a virtue” goes against my desire to “be.” To experience life. To be in awe of the little details and the magic of living. The desire to go deeper into my true essence and who I am.
This time of year, the energies are about drawing inward. Reflecting. Being still. Creating a nest, if you will. The challenge comes when the external is hustling and bustling. We are being told to buy more, attend more gatherings and celebrations, and to be busy decorating or cooking. Dial in to what your heart wants. It is ok to slow down. It is ok to say no. It is ok to simplify. Not only is ok to honor your well-being, it is necessary. Your health depends on it.
I have decided to slow down and take what I need. For me this means less doing and more reflecting. Part of that reflection has shown me that pausing some projects I have been working on in my business is a necessity, as is letting my Facebook Page take a break. I would love to stay in touch with you via my blog.
