“Are you pushing yourself too hard, beloved child of God? The Angels remind us that rest is a natural cycle in every living thing. Think of the mighty oak tree that grows in spurts and then rests. It draws its nourishment from deep within the earth, and takes its time before growing upward again. Like the oak tree, it’s important for you to nourish yourself with spiritual and emotional “food”.
Message from the Faeries: It’s really important that you give yourself a break this week. Things have been a little bit whacky in the Universe these days, and we would like to tell you that this craziness is going to end this week, but it’s not. So instead of waiting for things to relax and calm down, we suggest you give yourself a time out from it all instead.
If you can’t take a break from work or familial obligations, at least give yourself an hour or two of alone time. Go sit by the water or under a tree and just be quiet. Take a long hot bath and put a “Do not disturb” sign on the door. Meditate for 15 minutes every day. If you do at least on of these things for yourself this week, you spirit will give you many thanks and blessings.
Some people have the mentality that taking a break or retreat from life is running away or avoiding things. This is not true. You aren’t running away, you are simply hitting the pause button. When you are in the depths of the chaos of life, your body, mind and spirit get so wrapped up in the drama. This takes a toll on you as a whole. Giving yourself a time out is like hitting the refresh button, so that you are able to come back to the craziness with a clarity that will help push you through.
Don’t let the waves of chaos sweep you away. When you crash under a big wave: swim to shore, catch your breath, take a rest, then wax your board and get out there and try again. Soon you will grab that big wave and ride it out in bliss.
We love you!
