Finding Stillness

Inspiration: To continue to be still, even for only a few moments.

What if you knew beyond a shadow of a doubt if you spent time alone each day just being still, you world would change? The people you would encounter. The situations you would find yourself in. All extremely positive. These are just some of the gifts you will receive from a daily practice.

Carving out time, each day, preferably in the morning hours, can set the tone for our days unfoldment. When we rise to the sound of the alarm, followed by our morning beverage and then rush out the door, there is no space for possibility. Setting aside even a few brief moments and handing our day over to something "larger", can create grace in our lives.

Stillness can mean different things to different people. Personally speaking, I derive a sense of peace sitting quietly each morning, surrendering my day (and expectations) and taking deep breaths. On the days, I do not have TIME ( or did not make the time), I feel more anxious, chaotic and frazzled. It is a small price to awake just a few minutes early each day for some peace of mind.:)

Although the morning hours are ideal, any time can provide a sense of relief, ease and peace in the midst of ever going change that may surround you. Sitting quietly in nature and taking in the sights and sounds, brings us closer to our center; our center of truth. What arises may be clarity....into those areas we may currently question.

So I invite you all to lovingly embrace that sense of stillness that lies within. It is yours to access at any moment. May you all find peace and serenity.:)

Have a very "peaceful" day.

With Love, Denise
