Taking a Breath

Yeah, I should have known better. I saw it coming after all. I heard it.

Clearly.

Loudly.

Ok, there you go again. Will you react, Nadine or can you, just for a moment, take a step back?

I heard that. The message.

I heard a voice in my head. The Voice that was warning me, presenting me not only with those two choices but what the outcomes would be.

It’s not as if I didn’t know or I wasn’t forewarned.  So, I have no ‘legitimate excuse’ or ‘justification’…. 😉

It’s not as if I had no awareness at all of what was going on.

It’s not as if I didn’t have a glimpse of what would happen as a result of my choice.

But I still made that choice.  A lower dimensional consciousness choice. A less than evolved and unwise choice.

Instead of standing firm in my personal energetic space and come from a place of Calm and Centeredness, I allowed myself to be sucked into the drama. Straight away. Willingly. Knowingly! It sure didn’t take much and long for me to be the Drama Queen and be at the center of it all! Yikes! 😮

I reacted. Irrationally. With much intensity. Waaaay too much intensity and viciousness!

Not surprisingly, it wasn’t long before I was pulled from one drama to another!

Naturally, in the days that followed, I experienced the ill effects of my reactivity and fury not long after.

A terrible headache. Excruciatingly painful! Stiff neck and shoulders. Heat flushing through my body especially the bottoms of my feet and my palm. 😦

Irritability. Impetuosity. An edgy, twitchy feeling. Difficulty focusing and concentrating. Inability to sleep or relax. 😦

Ahhhhh…….

The human drama. The drama of Life. Life as we, humans, define it.

We choose it. We create it.

And I can continue to create a drama-filled life. I can create more drama — if I choose to and will it.

Or I can create one that’s filled with Joy, Ease, and Grace.

The choice is up to me. Really.

And I sure have the Power to choose and to create it — effortlessly and joyously.

If only I would, even for a brief while, pause and breathe.

Much has been written about the importance and tremendous health benefits of something as simple as taking a breath — especially when things get a little bit too crazy!

If only I could — and would — step aside.

Get out of my way.

Listen to that voice within — and follow it.

And take a deep breath — even for just a brief while.

But…

No point regretting. No blaming or shaming.

It was simply another series of episodes with which my Soul and the Universe gifted me. It was a reminder of what it takes to master a skill of keeping centered and grounded that starts off with something as simple, mundane and an oft-taken for granted action as taking a breath!
