After a week spent doing much creative work, I suddenly felt saturated to the brim.
I could not pick up my pen to journal nor my laptop to blog.
A part of me was distressed wondering what was happening.
When I tuned in to my inner voice, it whispered I had to let it all go for a day and simply be.
The body followed suit and got me feeling all achy and sore.
I knew I had to take a day off and give both my physical as well as creative muscles time to recharge.
My personal Reiki time felt extra special for I had no agenda on my mind.
As Reiki infused my body, mind and soul with its gentle warmth, I felt deeply rested.
There was nothing to plan for the day ahead.
As I soaked in my Reiki experience, I contemplated the meaning of going with the flow.
I felt blessed that Reiki practice forces us to slow down when we start to race! I’m glad I chose to honour the needs of my body and mind when they were begging for rest.
I could not take an entire day off because I have ‘mommy duties’ to attend to.
However, I did try to make the best of my ‘REST!’ And that was good enough.
No matter how busy our modern lives may be, don’t we all deserve these little breaks?
