I unknowingly gave myself the best birthday present I could this year; time. Initially, I'd hoped to be hiking, watching the lake's waves lap on the shore, or lounging on the beach with my toes in the sand on my 45th birthday. But instead, I'm in Houston, exploring this beautiful city with new eyes and reflecting.
I've even had the luxury to meditate Vipassana style three days in a row. While it can be a very rigid form of meditation, Vipassana is my preferred method of meditation where you sit in silence; no mantras, no chanting, no guidance, no movement.
Just silence and time.
Time to refresh, reignite creativity, uncover the pain hiding under the busyness, and most importantly, rediscover compassion, understanding, and acceptance in the silence.
As I was leading Savasana at Breathe Connect Thrive's restorative yoga class, I softened my gaze to the wooden beams above me instead of closing my eyes during the small moment of silence between songs.
Immediately, I was soothed and comforted. Not just because of the moment I was experiencing. But because I actively participated in the magical synchronicity that led to that moment.
With all the personal and spiritual development I've done so far, I'm still always amazed at how Source works so effortlessly and seamlessly. If I stopped to think about all the details, I think I might just go mad.
In all honesty, I think that's what drives us into frustration. Trying to piece everything together, asking yourself, "But, how can I make this work?"
Time and time again, the Universe responds, "It's not up to you to make it work; just follow the synchronicity."
I'm not here to tell you it's easy. But I also can't tell you that it's as tricky as we've been taught it's supposed to be.
You see, it's the small moments that make the most remarkable difference.
The small moment you choose to move in a different direction, take the tiniest leap of faith or just try something that feels right in your heart.
The small moment you choose to trust that little voice inside your heart that says, "Just share it."
All the Universe asks from us is that we take the inspired action.
For me, that inspired action is taking a break, wandering through Houston with new eyes, and sitting in silence.
I'll be back in a couple of weeks with a new video, but for now, here are some of my favorite small moments of inspired action.
When I created my first tarot spread journal and also my first YouTube short video.
When I interviewed Darius Bashar, who, by the way, has photographed the one and only Liz Gilbert, about capturing creativity through meditation and journaling.
The inspired moment that started my YouTube journey and my first video.
An inspired moment when I decided to record the first of many monthly tarot readings.
My favorite Receptive Mode Meditation which also happens to be about an inspired moment I went to go watch the sunrise.
When I decided to share a Conscious Connected Breathwork Meditation for Beginners.
By far one of my favorite moments of inspired action, was when I learned to play the guitar which ultimately led me to learning breathwork. click here to read (or re-read) it.
And though all of these things felt right in my heart, I still felt scared, worried about what people might think, and had hesitation. But I felt excited too. So I hope sharing this inspires you to try something that feels right in your heart.
