Can we be balanced staying rooted in reality and honoring our own spirituality everyday?
Making time to check in with mind, body, and soul each day seems impossible. Taking even a few moments to meditate, do yoga or do Reiki every morning before work seems like a battle. I question when will I do my daily yoga practice, that often seems like every other day or once a week. Balancing daily chores making time to exercise. walk the dog, feed the family, Etc…
Over the years many people have said ” Make sure you are always aware of your feelings, consistently throughout the day”. Especially when in a hectic schedule, or when life gets tough. I thought to myself ”Oh sure who has time to do that”-and “they must not get anything done in a day’s time”.
So here’s the list that I feel like I am supposed to do daily-
After breakfast and coffee which takes an hr, check in w/ self. Exercise, do yoga, do Reiki, walk the dog- twice, clean, do laundry. make lunch and/or dinner, get ready for work. Commute to work an hour each way, work for nine hours, sleep for at least 7-8 hours. Repeat.
Oh yeah don’t forget praying for peace on earth, saving all the animals on the planet. My daily gratitude list. Doing at least one good deed a day, What about time for my significant other? Poor dear! Tithing to my community. This plate seems a little full.
However smashing your feelings down layer by layer without dealing with your emotions or spirituality daily can make for disaster. One day you’ve got a perfect mess and you’ve got to pick a part the tangle of ”things” and deal with them all at once. Or if you are like me this happens every now and then whenever I get a little too busy to just stop and breathe, and feel my feelings and, my soul.
So when there’s a little free time to stop and feel, breathe and meditate, do Reiki and stay on top of the pile of laundry. I feel satisfied knowing that I will do this everyday or at least until I get busy (a day or two later) and restart the cycle.
