Mantra: Feel the Waves.
Meditation: Find a busy space. Yes, you heard me right. Today our challenge is learning to balance when things get hard, when things are loud, when things in our life are anything but ideal. Close your eyes or maybe you want to leave one open. Perfectly okay here 🙂 now center on stillness, calmness and peace. How do you feel when you are calm, when you are centered, when you have peace? Take yourself to this place. Create that space in your mind, in your heart. Tune out all other activity. This will be challenging but keep practicing. Try 5 minutes a day while waiting in line, waiting in traffic, sitting with your kids.
Anyone can find their balance when things are going right when things are quiet. What we need to practice is finding balance when things fall apart, when the unexpected occurs, when sh** hits the fan. It’s happened to all of us. Life has a funny way of throwing us a curve ball from time to time. When that happens we need to be ready to hit it out of the park. Don’t be shy, don’t be afraid. Your first few attempts, you may strike out and that’s okay. Keep coming back here to this space, to the busyness, to the chaos, to the crazy. Keep searching for the calm, the peace, finding your center among the chaos of everyday life. That’s what balance is about the ebbing and flowing, feeling the waves of life.
How do you find your balance in the middle of chaos? Any tried and true techniques you can share?
