Slow down

As the seasons change, and the sap runs more slowly in the trees, so too, you can slow down, and decide with great sincerity where you wish to place your energy, your attention, and your time. So many of you feel the need to rush through your days and yet it is in the pauses, when you check back in with your own heart, that you start to find clarity, direction, and a new sense of priority in your own life.

It is in the stolen moments of stillness that you can recalibrate your days. It is in the brief moments of quiet that you can decide what is of true importance to your heart and soul. Without life's pauses, you will be busy but not always productively aligned with your heart and soul. When you take the time to pause in stillness, to simply be, to rest, rejuvenate, and allow Spirit to flow through you unobstructed by the mental chatter of today's to do list, yesterday's regrets, and tomorrow's worries... this is where you will hear the still small voice of God.

So many of you say, "But I have so much to do! I can't slow down." And yet you can dear ones. Now, in this moment, reading this letter, stop. Take a breath. Check in with your heart and see what it wants next. And then make a commitment to honor that as soon as you possibly can. We are not necessarily talking about the "big" goals and dreams, but rather the small desires of the heart, the little ones that either guide you to a life of fulfillment or a life of feeling as if you are always last on your list of those you care for. Put your own heart's priorities first. In doing so you will raise your vibration, come into alignment with the Presence of God within and ultimately serve the needs of those around you according to God's dictates rather than your own.

As your holidays approach and you are tempted to be busy, busy, busy, take time to stop, breathe, check in with your heart, and know that God will help you accomplish all that truly brings your spirit joy. In the stillness, you open to receive God's love. In the silence, you open to hear our guidance. In the quiet, you will find peace has always been there. A few seconds of checking in with your heart and aligning your actions with the very same can change the course of your entire life. Don't miss the magic dear ones. Tune into your own hearts, and there you will hear the voice of God ever more clearly. It has always been there, waiting to guide you.
