“The moment that judgement stops through acceptance of what it is, you are free of the mind. You have made space for love, for joy, for peace.” Eckhart Tolle
In my Reiki and Counselling practice, people come to see me about issues that they are struggling with. It might be about relationships, about not being able to get the right job, or not being able to fall pregnant or about health issues.
In each case, there is one common link we all share. When I feel stuck or unmotivated in my situation, I constrict my mind and my body.
Constricting my mind, body and spirit, limits my view and a bigger picture. It keeps me feeling trapped without hope, it keeps me from living in the present. When I create space within me, I open myself to receive inspiration, guidance and direction. I create opportunities to see more and trust there is a way through my pain.
How do I constrict?:
Trying to control a timeframe or outcome of my situation
Allowing fear in which blocks my view
Being stubborn – believing that my way is the only way
Not accepting my situation
How do I create space?:
Meditation, Yoga, Breathing techniques
Spending time in nature/re-connecting
Surrendering and accepting my situation
Consciously practising being present
Visualisation on positive thoughts and energy
Each time I create space within me, I move towards healing.
