Mercury in Retrograde is finally over. I don’t know about you but I found it a tad irritating when it came to working on my laptop. Slow slow slow. However, sometimes we have to slow down in life in order to take stock and reflect. Is this something that you do?
Reflection is the ability to look back and analyse and see how, why, when, what if etc. Reflection is all about learning and growing from our experiences. We are here to grow and learn not stand still; imagine a baby not growing and learning – hard to imagine that isn’t it? Life is a continuous journey of growth and development. Not growing and learning can become very frustrating and standing around in a stagnant state is not good for your soul. When you reflect you give yourself the ability to move forward in life and make necessary changes.
Slowing down also gives you time to just be, time to smell the flowers and reconnect to our inner being. Never forget that we are a human being and not a human doing. We can get so caught up in doing; rushing around here there and everywhere. When this happens we can run out of steam and end up not really taking care of ourselves. We also weaken our connection to source energy.
When you take time out to just be and reflect you are showing yourself love. You will have the time to do the things that really matter and not get caught up in the trivialities of life. Try keeping things simple and see how much calmer you feel. Western society is moving at a fast pace, we are bombarded with so much information wherever we go, bill boards, TV, adverts, announcements on public transport. With such a barrage of external information it is no wonder that we can become bogged down and distracted. Our soul needs quiet time to rejuvenate. So take the time to slow down; reflect, meditate and enjoy the just being.
