Rest and Release
January 8, 2015 by Cathy Brown
“One needs to make room for the new, joyful, abundant experiences. If you do not release and clear out resistance and negative feelings – there is no room for the “Good Stuff” to manifest”.
The holidays have always been one of my favorite times of the year. Gathering with family and friends, the fun of decorating and shopping are a joyous time for me. This year was a great challenge. With my Mom’s passing in early December, I found myself planning a funeral instead of a Christmas party. Even though her transition was peaceful it hit me like a ton of bricks and took me to my knees.
As I usually do, I thought I could just power through it and be strong for my family. Not this time. I soon realized I needed to take time to release, rest and work through my feelings and emotions. The Universe seemed to feel the importance of this rest and release that it afforded me the opportunity to do so.
A few days before Christmas, I came down with a sinus infection which progressed into Bronchitis that has pretty much made me a couch potato for the last 2 weeks. Just lying there thinking, connecting with my Inner Self and the Universe, taking the time to help my body rest and my Spirit fly was this year’s greatest gift. Sounds a bit crazy, right? But I truly feel that way.
I am still in the grieving process, and will probably be for some time, but I now have a greater clarity of purpose and a much deeper connection to my Mother’s love. Even though she is deeply missed, it is a peaceful, safe and secure feeling to know “MaMa” is even closer to me now and still is my greatest cheerleader.
Just be aware that many times an illness or “dis-ease” may be a sign you need to release something that is preventing you from living your desired life. Take time to rest, release the resistance – and bring the “ease” back into your life. Turn the “disease” back into the “ease” you desire and deserve.
“Illness or pain is just an extension of negative emotion. When you are no longer feeling any resistance to it, it’s a non-issue”.
I take time to release resistance and allow the positive to flow in.
2015 is my best year ever filled with exactly what I want.
