I just graduated from my 2 Year MSS,, Masters Of Spiritual Science this weekend. It was a journey to go through all the processes and learn of myself and many others in the study. In the end, we are all seeking the same things and it is a matter of how we responded to our environments and what clothes we picked to wear. On one end, trying to control the situations for safety and the other to pipe down our enthusiasm and quietly acquiesce for peace.
It was amazing to see how it all really comes down to the same factors we are all looking for and that even our issues, as we went into the depth and patterns, were pretty basic and simple. We think our lives are filled with so many things when often we are doing the same situations, relationships and responses over and over again thinking all is different when it is not. Just our defense mechanisms playing about in our attempt for safety, security, understanding and protection. It was truly a magical journey.
I understand so much more of others and it intensified my 6th sense and ability to read and understand them. A gift to know what they need for safety, to open, be settled and support them in strife. In the end of it all, it came down to one word that I could use to explain my experience and learning, We all need to relax!
We just don't relax, allow, get present and flow with life. We get so caught in our mind, our ideas or desires, add extra to situations making them much more complicated than they are and truly tangle ourselves up with non truth. Relax is such a simple word but very few know how to do it and how it feels in their body. It is a worthy practice to play with this word and understand it fully. So many of our issues, perceived problems, confllcts, troubles are far more confusing because of our inability to relax.
For instance, lets consider we have many tasks to do. We rush around in frantic, get fumbled and then spill something, lose our keys, rush about creating more panic energy and actually wasting more time when we are already behind. If we could breath, regroup, calm down, we could glide through it in grace and ease. How many days are you in the flow and you get so much done you can't believe it and there was no rush, plan or schedule. Yet you proceeded to flow with what was occurring, almost dance like and simply accomplish a ton with what seems little effort. That is what relax does to us as we move. We are more joyful, less pressured, easily present and moving from one to the next and we get much complete!
How many times does our mind get in to second guess us, react more intensely to others comments, not see all the information correctly then we ruminate things in our head. We are so busy talking to ourselves about what could be or should be or what we will say and we are moving around missing out on life as it is happening. We blow things out of proportion, create strife where there was a light misunderstanding and just get stress, tight and combative and it truly was all in our head.
In our class, we saw these things over and over again as the issue rather than real issues. It was our energy, our approach, our thinking that was not reality but bad imagination at work. That is why breathe is so valuable a word and tool that you hear everywhere to calm. Why? It gets you relaxed through deep breathing, creates clarity in the moment and stops the energetic panic flow. If you do it for more than a few breathes, it literally switches nervous systems and you find yourself in the parasympathetic one of relaxation, renew, rejuvenation in oxytocin, the healing hormone.
So I invite you to really pay attention to what you are doing to yourself. Observation so key in the two years of my class. When you catch yourself all caught up in things in a tizzy, just stop and breath. Go outside. Call a friend to reset you. Take a breather as we say. It is a powerful practice and can be used many times in one afternoon and still do its magic every time. You will find you are moving in a more graceful gliding way. I don't care what it is you are dealing with, it will lose its intensity. Then clarity, clear thinking can come in for panic thinking is never wise.
Our health crisis of stress and stress related disease, no sleep, no fun is all based on the panic state we live each day. If you could just start to bring in an awareness of this and find ways to get to know what relaxation is in your body and mind, you will clear so many health issues. It is not good for us to be in adrenal stress all day. Our lives are a panic nightmare that never ends. Simply play with these ideas. It is the magic elixir of all time. They say relaxation is enlightenment. For it lifts you up, out and beyond present circumstances and allows you to be clear at seeing what is occurring. Stopping your mind, slowing down your body, moving in a more graceful flow.
Play with it and you will see the fun of life that comes in! Truth is simple just not so easy! Relax for a moment! It is truly magic health!
