When I decided to write a blog for my webpage, I thought I love chatting and emailing friends on what’s going on and sharing some insights, this should be easy! But boy, as soon as it’s for a blog….I’m blocked. Every time I thought about what and how I should write I felt blocked. So let me ask you, is there someplace or some activity that seems to always bring out your most insightful moments? Those light bulb ideas? Well this is where the toilet comes in; – it’s my light bulb place. When I said blocked, you didn’t think I meant the you know what kind of blocked did you?
For me when I’m performing my morning routine; shower, teeth, hair, texting friends etc., most of which at the same time I’ve come to realise over the years that this is when I get my most insightful messages. Thoughts of people to contact, behaviours to be aware of for the day, creative ideas etc. Fresh and relaxed I’m at my most open and receptive to my guides and their prompts to assist me be the best I can.
This morning as I dried my hair and brushed my teeth I realised I’d picked up an almost finished tube of toothpaste and then proceeded to get annoyed with myself as there was a full one right next to it. I mean really, if only I’d picked up the full one I’d have saved myself some time instead of trying to squeeze the end of the thin used one. At that moment, there in the bathroom, that’s when it happened that thought in my head out of the blue……why not blog about our ongoing frantic need to save time, increasing stress levels and its impact on our ability to receive messages. In all honestly how much time would squeezing toothpaste from a new tube have saved me compared to an old one, a second or two, but more importantly in today’s society of stress, rush, disposable this and that, too busy, too anxious etc., are we missing out on all the glorious messages and insights that are there if we just stop and listen?
When we are relaxed we are more open to receiving messages and it gives our guides a chance to cut through all the normal noise and bustle going on in our heads. So find your light bulb place, be it the garden, in the shower, on the throne or in the bathroom. Quiet your mind, relax, be present and let the thoughts and ideas flow. It may take a while but over time the messages will become stronger and you’ll intuitively know they’re your guides and not just your busy head voices.
So next time I’m blocked on what to write for a blog I know exactly where I need to go. But next time a lovely bath with candles might be in order. Ahhhhhh bliss x.
