Friday Wellness Tip: Downshift Now For Inner Peace


Dear Wellness Seekers,

Friday Wellness Tip: Downshift Now For Inner Peace. Really ‘Now’ you are thinking? Perhaps you will take time tomorrow? Spanista asks why wait? To achieve inner peace one does not have to go on a zen retreat in a far off land. (Well of course you can if you want to! But who has time?! )
No matter where you are right now you can make the present moment your strength – Say  to yourself – “I AM AT PEACE.” No matter the circumstances you can relieve yourself of the outer worlds pressures and distractions. At times I may feel uncertain or anxious about the direction of my life. For example, especially moving from places I have come to love to a new location where everything is unfamiliar. Am I doing the right thing? Am I accurately interpreting Spirit’s guidance? When that happens, I do what brings me peace: I stop the madness in my head and rest in the Silence and feel the wholeness of this moment. Simply by closing my eyes, focusing on inner peace and breathing deeply – in and out for three repeats, I open up to a new level of Emotional Wellness.
I then open my eyes to experience how relieved and at peace I am right now!
I’ve “touched the peace in me that surpasses all understanding” that is within my reach because it is already in me to call upon at any time.Friday-Wellness-Tip:-Downshift-Now-For-Inner-Peace-2.jpegPINIMAGE
Friday Wellness Tip: Downshift Now For Inner Peace is yours for the taking. Especially is you find yourself running in the rat race. Spanista believes the answers to joyful living are not ‘Out There’, they are ‘In Here”!  You just need a time out to downshift in order to get in touch with the Truth during your moments in the Silence. When I downshift, I know I am right where I am is where I am meant to be. My path is valid and my mission looking forward is worth while and enjoyable. I have faith in Spirit’s ever-present, indwelling guidance. I am at peace in the present moment.
Remember what Lily Tomlin once said (She is so funny in Grace and Frankie):

The trouble with winning the rat race is, you are still a rat!

To Your Self Care Journey To Joy,
