Turn the Dial Off the Rush Setting
If you are setting a dial for the pace of your life, what setting would you choose?
As you are moving forward in life, what setting have you set on your life dial? I would like to challenge everyone to take a step back this week and ponder the pace and the flow of your life right now.
The world has programmed each of us to move faster and do more in less time. Our professional survival is directly linked to our ability to complete more tasks and more work in less time. This approach to life has impacted our physical, emotional, and mental health. It has increased our stress levels, affected our sleep patterns, reduced our physical movement, and so much more.
When COVID appeared in our lives this year, it required many of us to adjust to a different setting on the pace of our life. Time seemed to slow down for a moment and many individuals discovered a different pace for their lives. They found peace and connection in the moments of stillness that were presented to them. They gained an appreciation for slowing down and stepping into the moments.
Why are we in such a hurry?
Why does everything need to be rushed?
In the last several weeks, my students have made inquiries that have me pondering this idea that each of us has to rush through the moments in our lives. When was the last time that you recognized the magic of taking time for the sacred, being present in the moment, allowing yourself to breathe into the moments of stillness?
Every year, I set aside a couple of weekends in the fall to lead individuals through the process of Sacred Candles of Intention. This workshop is filled with so much magic and sacredness. The sacred temple is set, the divine is called in to join us and I lead the individuals through a full-day process of creating sacred candles of intention.
This is a very special day that is devoted to you and your soul. I start the workshop by telling everyone that they have set the day aside for themselves. This program is about reconnecting to your soul and divinity. It is a time to slow down and be present in the moment of magical creation.
I have made these candles every year, since 2011. For those of you that really know me, you are very much aware of how busy I am. My time is very precious, and I will not commit to anything that is not truly important to me. The ritual of making my sacred candles has always been a priority and I commit each year to a full day of being present in the sacredness and being led by my divine team in creating the magic for my life.
The truth is that you could rush through this process and set aside an hour to throw together your sacred candles. You would have candles and you can check the box for the year that you completed the task. However, you have missed the essence of this magical program. You have not given yourself the time to be present and to connect to the divine guidance that has been waiting for you. In order for you to connect and to receive clear guidance, you must slow down, you must be present, and you must turn the world off around you.
Magic cannot be rushed. It requires that you hold sacred space for yourself and the process. Our guides, guardians, angels, and master teachers patiently wait for us to truly understand the sacredness of this life and the beautiful magic that is available to us in our daily lives. Do you give yourself time to be in the stillness, to take a breath, to honor your sacredness?
There is so much magic and intention in this program. All of the individuals attending the program on that day are connected. Each individual is holding a sacred space with the collective energies of the group. These energies are woven together in a tapestry of support for each other and themselves. The time spent in the sacred temple of the workshop is an open invitation for your divine team to be present and guide you in regards to your magical intentions for these candles. It is a day to be fully connected with your higher self as you step into a space that is devoted to you and your intentions.
The individuals that choose to rush through the process have truly missed out on the divine connection of this workshop. The truth is that magic is not meant to be rushed. It requires us to slow down and be in the process. Our lives are not about racing to the finish line. Our lives are about taking the time to experience the journey and the sacred moments that we have along the way.
The next time you consider taking a shortcut to rush the magic in your life, remember that when you choose that approach, you have probably missed the golden nugget in the process.
Are you ready to be your own magical creator? Every year our community steps into their own magic and makes sacred candles with herbs, essential oils, and focused intentions. These candles bring in all your dreams, your intentions and so much more! Find out more about our Sacred Candles of Intention workshops.
