The first month of Quarantine proved to be frustrating–up and down and all around in emotions. I developed some bad habits and I don’t feel good.
I’m happy to report that the next round of 30 days is going to be far different!
Instead of watching the news on television, reading news on the internet and all my social media platforms, I will get my news once or twice per week and I won’t soak in it. I’ll get it and I’ll go back to my world that I can commune with.
Instead of piping in my opinions on posts, I’m not going to tune into much social media. With all the theories and concerns about how they are controlling us and going to force us to be vaccinated, I’ve had enough. We’ll cross that bridge when we get there, for now, let’s go along with being safe and getting rid of this crazy pandemic that none of us has ever had to deal with.
I just know that for me, I’m a delicate energetic being. Participating in all those politically charged topics makes me feel bad. I’ve always despised the analyzing and the talking heads and all the different perspectives and guesses as to what’s really going on. It is not good for any of us. I just know that I can’t go on another 30 days doing what I did the first 30 days. I’ve learned!
Also, I do know how good it feels to meditate. I once had a consistent practice that made me feel so joyful and free.
My practice was stunted for a couple of not so pleasant reasons. Mostly though, I was doing a ton of pet sitting so I’d move in and out of houses and have different schedules depending on the animals. It threw me out of mine.
Now, with no consistent practice, I really feel that lack of it and I know what I need most at this time and I’m guessing everyone could use it too. I’m super motivated because I know what it does for me from the past.
I suppose if you’ve not experienced the benefits personally, it may not be as easy to commit to it. I’m here to tell you, meditation is magical. It’s magical without knowing what to expect because it shows up in ways you’d never anticipate. It is bliss.
I just want something to count for this time. What did I achieve? Other than avoiding the virus, I came out on the other side of it all with a clarity and an ease and a trust in knowing that all is well and everything is working out for the best. And, I will have created a meditation practice that I can take with me anywhere and be consistent in whatever schedule I’m on at at the time.
I will go into my Genie Bottle now and pray and wish and hope and pray and wish and hope some more that the rest of the world slows down internally. Slow down enough to hear your inner spirit guiding you and soothing you back to a life you love.
