So simple – it’s hard
Ever wonder if you are making life harder on yourself? If you are like most people, you will notice that a lot of your energy goes into over thinking, analyzing and problem solving. Our minds love to fix things and problem solve but wasn’t it Einstein who once said, “You cannot solve a problem from the same consciousness that created it”? So how do we access a more simple way of living?
Mother Nature has given us a wonderful tool to live simply and the good news is that we don’t have to do much. All we need to do is get out of the way so she can do the healing work on us. Once we create space she can come in and helps us heal whatever is blocked. The trouble is that we rarely create enough space because we either don’t know how to or we feel uncomfortable doing so. Our mind may also try to convince us that it cannot be this simple and if there is a problem we must ‘fix’ it. Fortunately life is very simple; unfortunately the mind would love to convince us otherwise. So how do we access and open ourselves up to this profound healing?
The answer is simple and it is hard too. If we want to access this healing we must do what our minds talk us out of doing – sit still and become more receptive to our feelings. If you have ever done this practice before you will know that it can be very uncomfortable since different emotions, feelings and thoughts arise. Staying with it will allow you to walk through this discomfort and after enough practice you will find yourself feeling much lighter. All of a sudden what caused you anxiety is no longer a problem and it doesn’t have the same emotional charge.
Thanks to Mother Nature we have been designed for self-healing and we don’t earn it or lose it – we simple uncover it. Practice coming into your body more and release the need to over analyzing everything. You will be surprised at how such a simple tool can create deep profound healing.
