Do you berate yourself for 'doing nothing' when your energy is low? Don't be in such a hurry to get to a high point. When you take time to tune into the stillness and silence, you are nurturing your potential, refueling yourself with the energy you'll need to manifest your future goals.
Taking the pressure off your egoistic mind can also boost your self esteem. You can give yourself a break from "doing" and accomplishing things and still know you're whole and complete and perfect just as you are. After all, even the world's major religions take one day a week off!
Hanging out with the stillness and quietude for a while can reap great rewards. Even if you are a high achiever and become restless and impatient if you're not always "doing" something, remember that yin and yang, night and day, rest and activity have equal value.
That's the whole idea behind meditation. While you may think you're not accomplishing anything while just sitting there thinking about nothing, or trying very hard to think about nothing, you are actually creating space for manifestation. Just as an acorn that lies silent beneath the soil, a subtle yet mighty network of communication and activity is doing the hard work of transformation.
No matter how low energy or lazy you feel, if you can value those moments as opportunities for introspection, you can actually tap into your infinite potential to change your energy and your life.
Taking a breather allows you to evaluate and clarify your goals
and gives your Brain Operating System (BOS)
a chance to reboot and connect with your higher consciousness.
Through stillness and silence perception becomes clearer. Recent studies suggest that, if you
change your perception, or interpretation of an event,
you will actually direct your cells to act differently, and more healthily.
And transformation can only occur from the present moment. If you are stuck in the past, you neglect the energy of the present and can't move forward. You're wasting the fuel that could launch your future.
Sometimes, the biggest shifts in awareness and consciousness can come from the most subtle actions, even the seeming "no action" of meditation.
Here is a simple yet powerful meditation for you to do whenever you need a respite from having all the answers to life's questions, or want some mental space for creative problem solving, but still want to feel like you are connected to a greater cause.
Transformation can come in small and frequent shifts or in sudden and massive leaps. So, no matter how little contribution you feel you are making at any given moment, you can rest assured that transformation is always in process, occurring since the dawn of time, in endless cycle like the ebb and flow of the ocean tides. Because we are interconnected, you will always influence the world around you.
