I think most people agree that technology is amazing. It assists us with so many aspects of our lives. But one of the things that is happening in our need to “get connected”, is that we are losing connection within ourselves. Somehow we have misplaced our internal power cord and have ignorantly replaced it with something man-made.
But have no fear! I am going to share 4 ways that will get you re-centered and connected to yourself.
***Be warned: Using these tools may also help you connect to others and the world around you. So don’t try these things if your goal in life is to become a mindless zombie.
1. Put the electronics down and step away from the computer
There is so much electromagnetic interference running through the planet right now. Why does this matter? Because you are a complex being of circuits and electricity. So if you are constantly connected to a phone or other device, that interference is depleting your natural energy reserves. And let’s be honest, you can’t afford to have less energy in this fast-paced world. Less energy equals less connection.
2. Move Your Body
Remember our conversation last week? (If you missed it, check it out here.) It’s amazing how much we disconnect from the world around us just because we are sitting still. Moving your body has so many amazing side effects, but one of the most amazing benefits about moving your body is that you can move it closer to the things/people/places/experiences you want. Sure, you can wait for the universe to drop it into your lap (whatever “it” is), but the second law of motion can imply that our desires will come with more force when we times mass (aka your body) with acceleration (aka movement). So move it!
3. Love Your Body
Your body is so wise. It has mechanisms in place to help you keep things in balance. We are disconnected when we ignore our body’s signals that we need something. Eat when it says eat, sleep when it says sleep and use the restroom when it says it’s time to eliminate. And for heaven’s sake feed your body good food! So much of our body misunderstandings come because we eat junk. Put heaping doses of love, gratitude and forgiveness into your exchanges with your body. It will thank you and show you all kinds of ways to stay connected.
4. Take a day off (You are totally allowed!)
I think I am going to cry if I see one more burnt out mommy this week. Burn out is a result of trying to do too many things with not enough resources or energy. When this happens, sick days are not an option. Your body will basically shut down and you will be forced to recuperate. So before you go plummeting down that spiral staircase of duress, choose into a rejuvenating and restful day. You’ll thank me later.
These are just four things you can do to change your connection to yourself. Don’t be afraid to implement any other ideas you may have.
And why should you care?
As you reconnect, your energy will increase and you will experience deeper and more fulfilling relationships.
Don’t be surprised if you find more happiness in the process, too!
Love and light,
