Make Time to Take Time                                                                       

“A great silent space holds all of nature in its embrace. It also holds you.”    –Eckhart Tolle

My business is my passion and I love to help people to live more fully from their hearts!

Sometimes though, I find myself caught up in the harried, crazy busy, dimension that we all succumb to now and again. Yet, I believe it is important to impart the necessity of finding balance in one’s life and to do for myself as I guide others to do in their own lives. As a self-employed entrepreneur, I eat, sleep and breathe my business. Once a month, I take time out to visit a place in nature to do writing and other work related things. Like many people, I find it difficult to carve out time. Sometimes, it is like moving Heaven and Earth to do this~ yet it is a special treat that only I can give to myself. The inner critical voices try to tell me, “You don’t have the time, You should be doing x, y or z, You shouldn’t allow yourself the luxury.” Learning to identify and silence those inner critical voices is part of our spiritual growth and is a necessary step in taking back our own power. Since I fully believe in living what I teach, I have developed my own strategies to overcome the negative voices. Hence the once-monthly visit to nature.

The lesson is this: It is of the utmost importance to slow down in a busy life. No one is going to tell you to take time out for yourself, the power lies with you.
It can be hard to take time out of your busy life, but when you do; it can be the best 15 minutes or few hours of your life.

Sharing the Lessons I’ve learned at the “office”

~ You can’t walk briskly in a Labyrinth (you must take it S L O W)

~It’s important to breathe in the smells of a garden (take deep.full breaths)

~If you listen carefully, the birds have something to say (what is their message?)

~Sometimes it’s fun to snooze under a pine tree (need I say more?)

~Your body will always tell you what it needs if you listen (deep listening)

~Butterflies are really interesting and fun to watch (always in JOY)

~That a walk in the woods can undo a myriad of hurts (change in perspective)

~Food really does taste better…outside…in the summer…under a tree (enJOY every bite)

Sometimes, you have to Make Time to Take time!

EnJOY~  cathie

The flower pot on Buddha’s head is great. The flower arrangement is gorgeous. Everything you mentioned in your Article about outside ventures is soooooooooooo true. The fresh air, is always so uplifting. Thanks for reminding us of the feeling we get when we are outside, eating, playing ball, snoozing, etc.

What's YOUR Secret Dream? (I'll tell you mine)

“Celebrate your own special spirit,
fly on the wings of your secret dreams”
                                               ~Laurel Burch                                                                                                                       
We all have secrets. 💕                                                                                                  
Secret dreams, wishes and desires that we keep close to our hearts.
We dare not speak them, afraid to give them wings that will carry them off- never to be seen again.
We dare not speak them so they stay close to us; and safe in a comfortable cocoon.
We dare not share them, so they stay imaginary and free from judgment.

As you read this, think about your own secret dream
