Hope you all got a chance to enjoy this beautiful weather we’ve been having lately and that there is plenty more to come.
This year I have decided to take the months of July and August off completely and spend a lot of the time in County Clare. There I am looking forward to catching up with family and friends, pursue some of my interests like reading, painting, yoga, walking and swimming.
These pursuits I find very relaxing and help to centre me into the present moment.
When our thoughts are scattered in several directions at once and we are no longer conscious of what we are doing or why, it is time to centre ourselves. When we centre ourselves, we begin by acknowledging that we have become spread too thin and we are no longer unified inside. Our thoughts might be out of sync with our feelings, and our actions may be out of sync with both. The main signs that we need to centre ourselves are scattered thoughts and a feeling of disconnection or numbness, as if we are no longer able to take anything in. In addition, we may feel unfocused and not present in our bodies. Cantering ourselves is a way of coming to terms with all the different energies within us and drawing them back into ourselves.
Cantering yourself means that you are working from or being aware of the core of your being in the solar plexus area of your body. At first it may not make sense, but as you progress you will understand what this feels like. We naturally know how to centre ourselves when we take a deep breath, for example, before making a big announcement or doing something big. Another way to centre ourselves is to sit down and engage in mindfulness meditation.
