When we are moving through an emotional storm the best thing that I can do for myself is to be an “observer.” If I watch the energy that is coming up, I do not have to take it so seriously and that allows it to pass more quickly.
Breathing consciously and deliberately helps me when I find myself in one of these challenging moments. They pass more quickly when I am not as hooked into reactive responses. I want to respond to life from the highest place within me. Breathing deeply helps me to remain compassionate with myself and others.
I make a practice of stepping back. This enables me to rise above my emotions and center myself in a more calm and gentle place within. This is a valuable spiritual life skill that is so useful to me and it saves me from being the source of hurt feelings and I can safely surf around the waves of drama that might have developed if I was not paying attention.
I pray that you have a day filled with the joy and peace of Spirit. You can and you will if you remember to take a deep breath when something comes up within you that needs to move out of your way.
Know that you are loved. Rev. Barb
