Mental Health Mantra 33/365
The time I spend with colour and water is very relaxing for my nervous system, I find I calm my breathing down and no sooner have I begun, I check in with the time and about an hour has gone.
Today, being the second day I revisited paintbrush and pad, I felt irritated that it was all going wrong, I felt the inner critic jump on board, telling me what a fool I was to even begin to think I could do this for 28 days - not only that, but I had committed to myself that I was going to write about it on here.
Add into that mercury is in retrograde, so yep, you guessed it, technology is playing up. Suddenly my printer has decided it doesn't have scanner in built anymore and it just has removed it from the command screen. I uninstalled the printer, reinstalled, turned everything off and on and of course, blew a few times. Nope. It wasn't having any of it.
Thankfully I don't get worked up, I know these times. (I am hoping this journal entry uploads).
This quote of Eckhart Tolle is very apt for me - and maybe for you.
This is an opportunity to step back and witness the unfolding, the breaking down of paradigms that are no longer serving me, that goes for internal and external.
I have found in my own spiritual practice that the more I work on my own self, the projection of the external, changes.
Our internal perceptions form the external projections - of course this happens vice versa.
The external projections form our internal perceptions. Not a great way of living as we are constantly detached from our own source, and subsequently guided by what is out there, rather than trusting our own inner connection to universal law.
Tolle reminds me of this today for this Flower Mantra.
Peace begins with me.
Keep shining star seeds and trust your intuitive guidance.
