"When we walk the labyrinth of our soul out from the center and back into the world, the key is to slow down and observe our minds, observe every single one of our decisions, observe what we say yes to and what we say no to, observe what we give our energy to. It is by slowing down that we become aware of how deep certain patterns have run and are able to steer our course in accordance with our newly established beliefs, with what we have come to know about ourselves. By slowing down we can build our inner clarity and strength to find our way out, leaving the shattered remains of our discarded path behind us." From Heart of the Labyrinth by Nicole Schwab, Womancraft Publishing.
I share this here as we move into the Spring & Summer seasons. Why you ask? Because so many of us give in to the indulgences of the friend, family, & community gatherings, the constant buffets & BBQs of not so healthy foods, excess sweet treats, and alcohol flowing freely.
We set out with good intentions; our plan to feed our body cells for health and healing, but something seems to get in the way.
When we open to soul, our inner light, grabbing at every sweet treat or salty indulgence offered no longer pulls at our reserves. When we align with spirit, our spirit, making choices based upon our wellness needs becomes second nature. No guilt, no feelings of deprivation, just blissful peace.
Question to ask yourself to bring peace when making celebratory food & drink choices:
"Is this best for my wellness, will this best feed my body cells for health and healing?"
I wish you peace on your journey of self healing.
