Phew! August is the month when everything is at its hottest, especially here on the White Island. Work with this heat and do less of what you “have to” or feel you “must do” and feel your summer-time smiles become fully fuelled with a sense of real fulfillment by asking yourself:
What do I enjoy most in my life?
What am I most passionate about?
How can I do more of what feels good more easily?
Being away on summer holiday, retreats, away from reality’s responsibilities, gives you space and time to unplug from all the have to’s and the pressures that can weigh us down draining our passions and energy.
Unplug properly, make sure you turn your iphone or blackberry off for at least a few day enabling you to unplug mentally and create space for your inner-smile, your enjoyment of life to refuel you with a new found power. From here, with this can do feeling of positive possibilities, ask yourself the questions above and consider – how can I bring more of it into my reality?
Have you every noticed that when you are doing what you enjoy, when you are focusing your time and energies more and more on what feels good, the relationships, the experiences, choosing the pleasure rather than the “ought to” invitations and situations where you feel you may “rather be” elsewhere, everything takes no effort?
Imagine what life could be like when you really are saying yes, at least 90% of your time, to what you really enjoy? How much less effort and energy will this require? And with this extra energy, the world is your oyster: what are you passionate about that you can invest this energy in instead? Begin to make a gentle shift by choosing to say yes to what feels good rather than because you feel you ought to, or that you may be missing out.
As you keep saying yes more and more to you (whilst of course, keeping some consideration for the health and happiness of those around you), you will notice how much happier and stronger you feel, which spreads like a heart-warming fire in ever-increasing circles through your loved ones, friends and family.
Take some time out for you on our Just Stop retreat and enjoy plenty of healing treatments and pampering.
