With all the violence and hate dialogue that surrounds us in the news, It’s easy to feel like the world is collapsing. Most of us are scared, angry and frustrated.
Yet there is also goodness going around.
People who find your wallet or give you a smile that makes your day better.
Do we notice them? Or do we let these moments go because we’re overwhelmed?
Are we filled with so much worry that we have no space left for anything else?
That’s why it’s so important to have a personal practice that allows us to let go of negative feelings and create space—space will make us feel lighter. Space will give us more clarity. Space will allow us to move things around and keep tidying up until we are left only with what works for us.
It can be meditation, tai chi or yoga. For me, it’s Reiki practice. Every time I practice, I free some precious inches of space. When I get a session, I free even more—a precious gift in a crowded inner world.
What is your practice? What creates space in your life?
I would love to hear about it,
