Good day everyone! Okay so let me start by saying I am making excuses. I wouldn’t say that about me but that is what my ancestors are whispering at this very moment. Day 9 I got up and gave my thanks along with gratitude but I didn’t meditate, at least not like I’ve been doing. I made it more of a moving meditation day. I was thinking while walking. I affirmed while getting dressed and preparing for my day. I didn’t take time to take time for me. I didn’t feel rushed but I wasn’t relaxed either. Moreover, I was still blessed throughout the day but my ancestors were rather quiet. I burned my incense to get my environment ready but I wasn’t ready to hear. I was completely distracted. Excuse over-
Day 10, I woke up with intentions. I intentionally meditated peacefully. I intentionally drank water first, then my smoothie. I intentional took my time getting prepared. I intentionally called my ancestors to lead and guide me and all my family, blood or not, today. I intentionally raised the day 10 bar and this is what I’m being feed. I hope it helps you as much as it’s helping me.
I was asked a question “What can stress or worry add to your life? If you do either long enough would it give the outcome you desire or the outcome you’re thinking? How does it affect your body? Again, what can stress or worry add to your life?” I thought about it and decided to do some research so I could sound educated with my answer. Then I discovered:
Stress hormones are released switching off parts of the body that’s needed for survival. This causes breathing rates to increase which causes the heart to pump harder, which that causes the muscles and bones to clench up painfully. Worrying, well that leads to high anxiety & physical illness. Together, these two are life threatening. Apart, these two are life threatening. I didn’t expect to see any of this but I answered the question anyway.
“Stress and worry can add illness, pain, depression, and prescribed medication which will lead to a short time here on this earth. The outcome is nothing I would’ve imagined because it has nothing to do with why I would stress. However, I’ve been stressing and worrying forever. How do I shake something so common and comfortable, to be honest?”
“You don’t shake anything, you simply let go and allow whatever happens to be. What’s in your control causes no stress or worry. What you can’t control tears the very limbs from your body. There’s no shaking it, just trust that where we lead is best. We’ve been where you are. We can see what you haven’t seen yet. We have done what you didn’t do yet. When you trust the process, you propel through stress and worry.”
I’m always amazed at the lessons I receive on a daily! They are helping me become the me I’ve seen while meditating. They are helping me to walk and live my daily affirmations. They are pushing me pass the past and causing me to design my greatest future. It’s definitely not an overnight story of all stress & worrying being done but as long as I’m intentional with how I live I hold the power to simply let go of what I can’t control. And the beautiful part to all of this is you do too!
Are you doing something new yet?
