I renewed my vows recently to living a more intentional and conscious life with Peace at the epicentre. Part of this commitment involves regular relaxation, meditation & simply being in the moment to soak it all up. I am feeling so much more grounded, grateful & centred as a result.
This morning after a beautiful walk along the coast & a gentle yoga session I sat down to meditate. As the thoughts bubbled up I began to battle with them, get caught up in the drama of them, fidget, consider not bothering, but instead I sat with them. I breathed a little more deeply, I acknowledged their presence & listened to what they had to say. I then visualised these thoughts literally leaving my body and going up into the clouds & dissolving. What remained for a fleeting, blissful moment was peace & a sense of gentle expansion.
What also arose during the meditation were these silent words; 'Surrender & Sacred Action.' I was stunned because these are the exact words I need to embrace in my life right now as I try to navigate so many things. I am raising my daughter as a solo parent, running a creative business, trying to be a present and loving family member & somehow keep a sense of self in the balance.
After this meditation it all became clear that surrendering to where I am at in this precise moment is key. All of the mess, the odd socks, the few kilos that won’t seem to budge, the uncertainty that crops up at times, the fatigue, the joy, the laughter, the fun…is exactly as it should be. The way forward to step into my greater dream is by taking 'Sacred Actions' that resonate with me, that feel good and most importantly allow me to give back to others from a fuller cup.
Sacred Action might be the missing ingredient that we have all been searching for...so how do you take a Sacred Action?
