Creating space to listen- Thursday Thoughts

Hey, Beautiful Souls.

For most of us, life has a lot of noise. A lot of choices, things to do and many distractions.

Lately, my life has been even more full and will continue to do so for at least while , since the passing of my father.  

One of the lessons that I am learning though is that I need, not want (well that too) but need to make space to really listen.  The thing is, space isn’t going to create itself. We need to create the space to listen. For me creating space is a physical,  mental/emotional and time-related process. We can fill our minds, days, time and space with things that just essentially place holders or good enoughs.

In order to live a life that feels like truth, aligned and is  “us” we need to listen to what our life is saying.

Sometimes the avoiding of the creating of space is intentional. Sometimes we are so focused on go and get mode we don’t realize there is even something trying to be expressed, something that needs to be heard.

How you create space is going to be an individual choice. Maybe it’s by sitting with your journal for 5 minutes, maybe it’s meditation, going in nature, getting up a little earlier, doing a body scan/check in, in asking yourself what is trying to be or needing to be expressed here? Once you stop for even a moment, take a deep breath and check in you will know what area you need to lean into listening to a bit (or a lot) deeper too.

Personally, this is the exact space I am in right now. Knowing (and yet in some ways resisting) what I know I need to listen to.

Are you willing to create space to listen to your life?

Here is to living Inspired, Creative and Empowered
