Be attentive paying close attention to your internal and external needs. – Asa Don Brown
Last night at 3am my Apple Mac called out in a very loud deep voice “Excuse me, iTunes needs your attention.” It was an unexpected voice in the middle of the night, but it made me wonder how amazing it would be if we all had an automatic response in us, who told us when we need to pay attention to our body or our minds.
Something like, “Karen, your energy is very low today and it requires your immediate attention,” or “Karen, you have neglected to let go of a comment the other day, and it requires your attention!” Wouldn’t that be great!
I wish it was that easy! I have learned to listen to my needs and pay attention to my body and mind, by practising stillness each day. Over many years I have become sensitive and aware of what I need and I ask myself each day, “Is there anything I am holding?” “Is there anything I need to expand in myself?” “Can I feel any tension in my body?” “Do I need to rejuvenate my energy today?” These questions help me focus and allow me to address my needs. I find if I let go and expand a little each day, I am much more likely to replace my energy quickly, rather than over a week or having an illness slow me down.
Happy connecting everyone! and have a very Happy Easter. 🙂
