The pace of pause

‘Tis the season when we’re often busy, racing about, and completing the items on the day’s to-do list. And for some, this is energizing and glorious! For others, not so much. For many, when the list is driving, so is the head. Other sources of wisdom: body, emotion, spirit, desire, passion, intuition are ignored.

Wherever you find yourself today, consider a pause. Stop. Close your eyes. Take a few deep breaths. Invite your awareness to shift from the external and your mind, to the deep, inner source of personal wisdom in your heart and soul. Allow the “pace of pause” to take over your being. Then simply listen as you offer these questions:

What is my body trying to tell me?
What am I really feeling?
What energy pervades my spirit?
What do I intuitively know that I am ignoring?

Take a few more deep breaths. Smile. Express your gratitude. Gently redirect your attention to the day, the activity, the stuff of life with fresh awareness.

What is YOUR wisdom?
