Your Inner Sanctuary~

imagesThe famous philosopher Socrates said “Beware the barreness of a busy life”. I think that’s a very interesting quote! Have you noticed these days how busy we all are? Much of our attention is focused on the outside, what needs to be done today, tomorrow…or right NOW.  

Our brains are moving in a thousand different directions. How do we mangage our jobs (or lack thereof), families and responsibilities? How can we create and manifest more money? Find the love of our lives? Be FREE? Why is this or that happening in our lives?

As the holiday’s are quickly approaching we find ourselves with even more “busy-ness” and yes, stress! Wouldn’t it be great if we could all experience a peaceful, Norman Rockwell painting type of holiday? Or how about  just have a moment  when the world wasn’t buzzing in our heads so loud it’s almost deafening? I call that ‘loud head’ btw…not exactly a psychic term but I think it describes it pretty well! 🙂

It seems to me that the “barreness” Socrates is talking about is in many ways our own spirit. The joy of being safe in the body, at peace and in alignment with the earth, the universe and our very own selves. Occupying the space of our INNER SANCTUARY!

There is much talk about centering, alignment, creating (manifesting), being in the body etc. There are different beliefs & modalities as to how to get there, how to BE and how to manage it all in this world of “busy-ness”.  It can also feel very unsafe to be in the midst of it. The reality is that it is a challenge at best with our busy lives to merely sit down, let alone quiet the mind and be still.  After all there’s so much we need to DO! So what’s the bottom line? Well, read on dear ones!

All of this has to do with YOU taking CARE of YOURSELF! Actually taking the time to heal yourself, rejuvinate and bring back YOUR energy so you have access to it! 🙂 This of course means ALL OF YOU! MIND, BODY, SPIRIT AND SOUL!

 Not only CAN you do this but WHEN you do this, you will find you have more energy, less effort and things will begin to manifest themselves. Here are some interesting questions for you to ponder…. Do you care for yourself, answer to your own needs, nurture yourself and take as much time for YOU as you do for others? Do you take the time to quiet your mind, make your body safe, focus on your essence and what makes YOU happy? Do you feed your spirit & soul just as you feed your body?

For me, the answer lies in finding my INNER SANCTUARY. It’s really amazing how your “reality” will shift when you take time out of your day to access your inner sanctuary. It is a place of peace, a time to step out of the “busy-ness” of daily life. A place of safety where you can begin to clear whatever you have taken on from others. It is a place to re-discover all that is YOU and get in alignment with the flow of your desires & dreams.

Getting grounded and making the body safe is the first step. When you are grounded, releasing all you have taken on and focusing on the flow of energy you can effortlessly move into your INNER SANCTUARY. Your own personal place of peace & calm. There is a true joy in feeling YOUR energy flowing in YOUR body! This is how you care for your spirit! It’s how you heal, rejuvinate and access the unique essence that is your true self.

As I mentioned in the beginning, the holiday’s are quickly approaching (in the States Thanksgiving is merely 2 weeks away) and it will be even more important to find time to care for ourselves.  We will be inundated with  added obligations from family & friends. It can be an overwhelming and stressful time for many. When you have the tools* and take time to care for your spirit, you will experience more joy and the true spirit of the holidays!~Shine Your Light~Debbie

  1. I love the inner sanctuary, it is true we are often afraid to sit in silence. It is only in this state of peace we may be in union with our Source. Like the Ocean Whales we are attracted by a Voice that comunicates an ancient song. In this quotation from A Course In Miracles we are reminded all we need is to recalll our original Identity as we remain always no matter what we have dreamed up.”The miracle but calls your ancient name, which you will recognize because the truth is in your memory.” T-26.VII.16:1
