How to Live Light-ly In a Heavy World

When we live our lives more connected to our physical selves than our spiritual selves, we often feel an indescribable heaviness. It’s as if the weight of the world is on our shoulders day in and day out. We find ourselves consumed with worry, fear and the never-ending drive for material possessions and success. We are truly caught up in the so-called “rat race” of life. When we sustain this frame of mind for a long period of time we energetically feel dense, our energy centers are blocked which can lead to depression and or illness.

Typically our subconscious mind perpetuates this state of being because we are physiologically addicted to the emotional charge we experience, so we surround ourselves with like-minded sufferers. When we get to a point where we are disgusted with our lives or are faced with a serious illness, we then ask ourselves “is there a better way?” Thus starts the quest to feel better about lives and our selves. This is a desire to lighten up. To find a way back to the child we once were, filled with love, joy and light.

Here are three steps to bring you closer to your lighter self.

Play more with your children, your dog or pet. Dance, sing, play games, so you disconnect from the stressors in your life and connect with pure love and joy.

Meditate daily even if it’s for a short period of time. Meditation is a practice that you can build upon the key is to just do it. When you quiet your mind, you will be able to hear your inner voice, which has amazing information to share with you.

Be of service to others. When you are of service to others it takes the focus off of yourself allowing you to experience love and compassion, which will lighten you right up.

Become aware of the thoughts in your mind and how you feel in your body. The more you pay attention, the better you will become at managing what makes you feel heavy and makes you feel light.
