You Always Have Access to a Peaceful Place
A conversation we had in one of our meditation group sessions last week was about always having the availability of a calm and peaceful place.
I shared a story of how I returned home from the Relaxation Retreat last week, and as you do, you always feel a tad glum when you return back home from being away. The following day I was leaving the supermarket with my shopping in a trolley, arrived back to my car and it was so warm and sunny out. I put the shopping in the boot of my car and for second reached for the bottle of water in my bag, closed my eyes and took a sip.
In that moment, the sun beaming on my face and a refreshing drink, I was literally in the caribbean or some other exotic island. Within a split second I had taken myself away and it was amazing. I could literally feel and see this beautiful place! Perfect!
We discussed this in the group and someone made such a good point that if you do just look up to the sky you could literally be anywhere. How true is that. Today, go outside and look up. Blue sky, grey clouds, twinkly stars or a pitch black night… it’s all the same wherever you are.
So, know that you always have that. You can always look up to the sky and imagine you are in a perfect place for you at that moment, or close you eyes and see and really feel it. The calm feeling it brings is just so beautiful. Feel these moments and just breeeeeeathe!
P.S: See if you can spot the tiny little moon in this photo above. It was absolutely gorgeous and made us smile on our sunrise silent inspiration walk in France, on our Relaxation Retreat.
