My dear friend Mandy sent me a book the other day. I was so excited when I got the package because I have been looking for a new book to read. It is a book about getting in touch with your intuition. Which is something I do often but sometimes I find myself second guessing my own intuition. Seems silly but it happens to me all the time. After reading the first chapter I was reminded how important it is to stay in touch with your inner voice and really listen. It often gets me out of situations that I “can’t beleive I got myself into” and if I really listen I don’t find myself in those situations at all. When I listen to my intuition I flow through life. I like that!
During Christmas time I find it harder to stay in tune with my inner voice but I couldn’t figure out why until now. My body and spirit have to be clean and calm in order to hear my inner voice. That means I have to eat well, exercise, and sit quietly everyday.
I find this harder to do during the holiday season. But why? I think it’s because I am bombarded with ads on TV, the internet, the radio, and magazines to buy, buy, buy, shop, shop, shop, and eat, eat, eat. I surely don’t have time to do yoga, to sit quietly, to cook a good meal if I am shopping, buying, and running around feeling anything but calm.
So I made a promise to myself this holiday season that I would eat good food, exercise, and sit quietly everyday so that I can stay in touch with my inner self and feel calmer and happier. So that I can flow right through the holidays with inner peace.
