another of my authentic self moments
BEWARE - the following may sound that I have completely lost the plot - I am blaming the voices in my head.
soul searching - what a merry road that can lead you along. I am a thinker, I actually never stop, hence the voices in my head. But I have come to a realisation that FOR ME it is very important to have a balance in my life. Otherwise I feel totally out of control, overwhelmed and completely loopy. I sometimes think I lean towards the obsessive compulsive personality * whatever I am involved in, at any given moment, I am consumed by, I live and breathe my passion, whatever it is at that time. With the soul searching and the discovery of me needing a balance * I am trying to put voices into practice. I have decided to nurture myself and listen to those voices in my head - sometimes they really know what they are talking about! We all need nurturing and balance - whether it be our physical bodies due to stresses of daily living with chemicals and pollutants or our emotional bodies which needs a break for the stresses of modern day technology - a break from news and world events and yes, sometimes a break from other people's problems - a break to recharge the batteries so that we can be the best possible person that we can. And our soul needs nurturing, whether it be meditation, prayer or even going out under the pine tree and talking to the faeries or elves. Or just sitting and saying nothing, just being. How perfectly hard is that? But it is important. And more importantly - it is important to have balance. so for the physical body - a lovely long soak in the bath, candles and music, followed by a favourite body cream * gently massaged into the skin. And for the emotional body - time away from all - sitting in a chair, reading a favourite book or taking a nap on a cold afternoon, snuggled under a blanket and for the soul? tomorrow - I am going to go sit under that pine tree and listen - I wonder what I will hear?
