Fog on the water…

Fog on the water… even at mid day today there was fog on the lake and it was thick and plentiful enough to drift inland.

Some days, when we wake up, life seems to be covered in fog. We have no idea what we are doing or why, and any goals we knew we had yesterday are hidden and cannot be located.

But there are a couple of things you can do to help you clear the fog covering your life.

The first is to get away from the mad rush of life. Turn off or mute the cell phone, turn off the radio and TV. I have taken to driving without anything playing the car. No radio, no CD player, no iPod plugged in to the stereo deck. I choose not to listen to the radio mostly because of the nonsensical and repetitive advertising, but also because the news tends to shout the worst of things happening in the world and I do not need that. Or I should say, I chose not to need that

I wind down the windows, there is a surprising amount of natural things around that sound really good as an alternative, birds and animals for example. Ok I know this may not work on the highway, but it will work well on the side roads. Even the wind, cool or hot that comes in through the open windows brings nature and the good things in the world into the car as I drive.

If you can find a bench in some green space, sit even for a few minutes and close you eyes and clear your mind. It takes practice to keep from drifting off into ‘busy mind’ where you think of all the possibilities that could happen, good or bad connected with a situation that is concerning you. 

You want a clear mind, breathe in and out deeply. As you breathe out think of the things in your life you want to send away form your life. Breath out worry; breathe out fear; breathe out stress; breathe out doubt. As you inhale, with each inhale of breathe think of the things you want to bring in to your life.

Merge the breathing in of things you want to bring into your life with things you want to manifest. Breathe in abundance in health; breathe in abundance in love; breathe in abundance of wealth; breathe in abundance of success. Breathe in something else you want. 

Then just relax. If possible, take of your shoes and place the bare souls of your feet on the ground, feel ground under them and imagine your connection to the soul going under the surface and down into the ground like roots of a tree.

Think about your guides, your guardian angels and those spirits that have been with us since before we were born and are with us through our mortal lives supporting and helping us. Even if you have not connected deeply with them, these moments of quiet are the best times to reach out to them and ask for help, support, caring, and of course, guidance. You may not feel something from then right way, give it time. 

Above all, while you sit there, try and not get distracted by other things happening around you. And, if some animals, birds, squirrels and watch them, take pleasure in them, they are going about their day without all the concerns we humans have built around us.

The sun will come out and burn off the mist as will the peace and quiet in your spirit from these simple exercises and don’t forget, breathing out the toxins in your life and breathing the abundance and happiness you seek only takes a few minutes and can be done anywhere you can be quiet for those few minutes.
