Do you ever have those moments when you are feeling "off"?
You might find yourself spinning your wheels, getting lost in our head, and trying to figure things out. Or you just feel unmotivated, BLAH, frustrated, or stuck. Today, I want to share with you an exercise that can totally change your day and it literally takes no more than 5 minutes.
The past few weeks, I was feeling a bit off myself. I was in my head overthinking things and stressing about things. I was pushing myself - but getting no where and my negative thoughts and thinking started to kick in. Finally, I got to the point where I had enough so I decided to surrender!
I pulled out my journal and did this simple exercise (which I have been doing everyday since)!
It takes less than 5 minutes and can totally shift your day, even your life :0)
How it works:
1. Get a pen, paper/ journal, and a quiet place.
2. Starting with a prayer.
I usually call in the Archangels, Mother Mary, or who ever I want to work with that day. And I write the prayer. It might look something like this....
"Dear Archangel Michael, AA Raphael, & Mother Mary please be with me. Please help me clear these negative thoughts and this negative energy. Please heal the wounded parts of my self. Please help me release fear so I can have clear direction to me forward. I call upon you for your unconditional support, healing energy, and love. Please guide and support me."
3. If you would like you can also write out the specific issue you are struggling with giving it to the Angels.
They are always there waiting and wanting to help and support us but we have to give them permission.
At this point you may notice that you are already feeling more relaxed, at ease, or supported.
4. The next step is to ask for guidance and direction.
You can write something like this...
"What action steps do I need to focus on today for my highest good?" or "What is the best way for me to handle __________ situation."
As you write out the question you may find words, ideas, or inspiration drops into your thoughts. Write down what ever wants to come through. This is the angels speaking to you :0)
5. Take action.
Once you have your message or direction take action towards it.
What if resistance to what comes up?
Sometimes the Angels will ask us to do things we feel may be silly or not smart or we may thing well if I do that - how will this get done? My advise is to trust and surrender. They want to give you and help you in ways that you can't even imagine. They know what they are doing... trust them and let them guide you.
Example: 2 days ago when I did this the first thing that came up was clean out your email inbox. I was kind of like - hmmmm ok? So I did... and don't you know at the very bottom of my inbox from 5/11 was a email from my boyfriend - I giggled when I saw it and of course opened it. It was a poem he wrote me :0) My heart immediately filled with so much love - the best part is the last line of the poem was exactly what I needed to hear, seen, and bring back to my being in that moment "You need to do nothing, but shine your bright light."
Another example... yesterday I was trying to figure out what to blog about. So I did this exercise in the morning and asked for their support. My action steps I got where to clean up so I did ... well a friend texted me and through our text I told her about this exercise and I said - it takes 5 min or less. My blog title was born LOL.
Since then I have been practicing this everyday and I am simply amazed at the little surprises that pop up through my day. It is such a relief to know I am supported and I don't have to figure it all out by myself. I can shift my energy to focus on what I need to do and allow spirit to take care of the rest! It leaves me feeling lighter, freer, and so much more open!
Remember you are never alone!
You are supported and you are so loved! Let spirit support, guide, and provide for you! You will be so amazed at how your days and life starts to unfold.
I would love to hear from you!
