My 40 Days of Intention Experiment: Day 23

My intention today is to slow down.

That may seem like an odd thing to say on a Monday but it is what I really need.

I have a full day today and tomorrow, more so.  I feel anxiety creeping in and find myself realizing that my relaxation techniques have flown right out the spring-time window. My pulse races as my mind imagines all sorts of things that could go wrong.  Why does my mind look for what will go wrong and instead, believe what will be right?  Why is it either or? There are moments of allowing that I need in my life today.

Life changing moments are coming my way. Isn’t every moment an opportunity for change?

I need to embrace this change and feel through with confidence and grace. I picture myself pushing the water away from myself as I swim.  I do this easily.  Visualization can and does work for me.  I just need to remember what I already know.

Reading today about the spiritual practice of pilgrimage and walking.  I’ve never walked a labyrinth.  Perhaps it’s time. I feel like my life is a pilgrimage; a journey that takes me to where I live, learn, and grow.  Today I slow down.  Today I will take a walk and pray through what is causing my feelings of overwhelm.

Do you have a spiritual practice that helps you walk through your life?

*fine print  From time to time I see the hyper links in my posts.  I try to change them to reflect things in my life but I might miss one or two.  Please know that unless I say, “go here” or “click here” etc then the link is put there without my permission.
