For today I've drawn “Follow Your Own Rhythm” from the Sacred Rebels Oracle.
A woman is graciously moving to the music of her body and soul. Her twirling skirt is blending into the background. She is totally at ease with herself and her surroundings.
How often do we adhere to a tight schedule without given our own needs a second thought. We rush through the day, tick of our todo’s and in the evening, when we are exhausted, the only thing we want is to sit in front of the TV and eat crisps.
How much more healthy would it be if we would follow our own personal rhythm. Going with our own flow. When we pay close attention to that rhythm we can feel when it is time to act and when it is time to rest and recharge; when is time to play and create and when it is time to fill our well.
The same as with reconnecting with our inner voice from yesterday’s post, dancing to you personal rhythm is something which has to be regained step by step, moment by moment. With each step you will be more aligned with your inner rhythm. It will feel more natural each day to listen to you own heart beat, your body movements and you soul’s song.
I've only recently experienced how it feels not to listen to that rhythm. So often we keep going until it is almost too late. As if we don’t deserve to breath out, to take a pause. I wonder why we are so strict with ourselves when at the same time we are so loving toward others?
