A flash of inspiration came over me just now. It is called Night Light. Remember being scared of the dark as a child? or perhaps (as it is for many) being scared of the dark now? Remember how having a night light on, always made the night more bearable? So I was lamenting how I receive a regular email at night (I presume because of the Australian time zone) and how it actually makes me feel calmer going to bed because I have this positive, calming note that I read right before bed. Then it occurred to me that perhaps some other people could with this proverbial night light too. Something to get them to sleep, something to put their mind at ease to get them through the night (both actual and proverbial). Watch this space over the next few days and weeks as I put together some Night Light thoughts and begin sending them out into the wide world. Let’s begin with this one. Night Light:: I know as I fall asleep tonight, that a beautiful new, happier, brighter day filled with great opportunities is lining up for me. If you’re interested, the nightly emails I refer to above, they are called Notes From The Universe. You can sign up for them here (I personally love them).
I’m tired, I’m Hungry, I’m uncomfortable (all of course are on both the physical and metaphysical levels).
Here’s how I listened to my body yesterday: I did nothing except the grocery shopping.
I laid on the couch all day. I had a very long week, I was exhausted and “off colour” all week. Out for dinner two nights, late clients all week, an interview and numerous clients. Now, i had the choice for the two nights out to dinner. I could have said no but I chose to ignore my body. Then after a very late night Saturday night with a friend’s black tie wedding (which was a whole lot of fun but oh so long to get ready for as a woman going to a black tie event), my body was saying “STOP”. So instead of my usual Groceries, cooking meals for the week, including lunches, I laid on the couch and after a good 10 hours sleep last night, I feel pretty good today.
Now, if I had of listened to my body and said no to a few things during the week, chances are that I would not be behind for the week already with cooking but I would have enjoyed my Sunday a bit more too.
What is your body trying to tell you? Are you listening? or are you ignoring its signs and signals?
If it’s tiredness, take a break.
If it’s an unusual symptom and you’re worried, go to the doctor.
If it’s a sick feeling after certain foods, try to remove those foods.
If it’s a an uncomfortable feeling in a certain place, listen to that and investigate what exactly might be causing it.
Your body is always talking to you!
As always, download the image and save it to your phone or desktop, print it and pin it somewhere and when you see it, say it. And if you think someone else could benefit from this Mantra, share it.
