It’s interesting that most of us avoid our life. It seems like this would be a pretty tough thing to do. Our lives are so busy with day-to-day activities like sleeping, showering cooking, running errands, work and also a lot of busy stuff that actually distracts us and keeps us from looking at what’s going on in our life.
One of the best ways to go inside and be with your center is be quiet and be with ourselves so that we can hear what’s going on with our inner voice and see what comes up. It’s also nice to find silence and just watch our thoughts and not attached to them.
It’s exhausting to not even know what this inner voice is saying and be on autopilot, just acting out of it. If we just take the time to quiet our minds it allows us to connect to what it is saying so we can either make a decision to act out of it or not.
To start the process of being more present and less absent in your life, you may want to set aside just a few minutes in the morning and maybe at night to just sit and be with yourself. Not reading a book or watching a movie but just sitting and going inward so that you can see what you may be avoiding inside.
I love sitting in the morning. I meditate and to see what comes up. It’s a moment when I get to be with myself, loving myself, exploring myself and giving my body a moment to not be in action.
In all of my retreats, whether it be, the intensive, the mother-daughter, or the couples retreat you will learn how to sit and be with yourself, love yourself and replenish your spirit.
