I just did a 2 day Water Fast!!
2 days is not very long at all, my intention was to do 3 days, but I got just what I needed in 2!
If I was looking for all the physical benefits that a water fast offers I would have pushed through and continued to 3 or 4 days.
What I was after was so much more than the physical. Not to discredit the amazing benefits to your body.
The Awakening I had was deep and profound but what surfaced was the most simple of things.
We are all striving for success in life and to live a full life of abundance.
For many people that is…
Getting a good job
Having a profitable company
Living life on your terms
Traveling the world
Buying nice things
Having a nice house and car…
Yes, all those things are great and nice to have, but it is the little things that give us what we are all truly seeking.
And that is HAPPINESS
After 2 days on water, I went into meditation. I felt something coming through that needed to be heard and then expressed.
I meditated for what must have been at least an hour to an hour and a half. When I came back into my body I had the strangest sensation wash over me. I took in some more water and started to receive and embody the download.
I grabbed my journal and wrote it all out as best I could into words. Maybe you might resonate with this message.
The gist of it is this. It’s the little things:
~ Focus on the little things
~ You have TIME for all the things you want to do
~ You have enough MONEY for all the little things you want to do
You have time to:
~ Make beautiful nourishing food
~ Do all the little things around the house that make your space feel good
~ Paint and create
~ Iron and Clean
~ Call friends and family
~ Visit friends and family
~ Sit with yourself in silence daily
It’s the little things that bring happiness.
So much of the time our life is a dream, we are asleep, but once in a while we wake up enough to know that we are dreaming and to catch a glimpse of the truth.
Most of what the mind thinks is a dream. Any past or future thoughts are a dream. All we have is the present, the NOW.
What is not a dream is the self in which the dream is happening.
Sometimes we live in an ILLUSION of what we want our past or future to be like. Illusion is giving permanence to something that flickers in and out of existence.
Which means everything other than this moment does not exist.
If you take a photo of the ocean and show it to me and say this is the ocean, I will say No, that is a picture of the ocean, that is gone now, it doesn’t exist anymore. If we go and see the ocean it will be different to the picture.
Sometimes we ask ourselves, what is the reason for all this. What is the meaning of life?
That is simple too.
The meaning of life is to find out who you are. This is the reason we are here. It is to find ourselves, behind all the identity we place on ourselves.
It is the self behind being:
~ A Mother
~ A Father
~ A Brother
~ A Sister
~ A Business owner
~ Whatever role you play at home or work.
All of that is a cover for the expansive expression for who you really are.
Life is about the little things.
Nobody ever got to the end of their life and said…
I should have worked more…
Embrace the little things in life.
NOW is the time to be happy. You don’t need to wait for anyone or anything. You just choose it in each moment.
Have a beautiful day.
Hugs, love & unicorn sparkles,
