TEN TOOLS FOR 2011
Given the plethora of planetary patterns pervading planet Earth in 2011, it will be important to periodically slow down, take stock and recalibrate for the turbulent times ahead. Yes, there are big waves on the horizon, but instead of allowing yourself to be helplessly swept along, you can decide that it’s a great time to upgrade your surfing skills. Here are some simple things you can do to stay calm, centered and balanced as the tide rolls in.
• Throughout each day, express gratitude for every good thing that comes your way.
• Every morning, make a list of all you would like to do that you will be proud to have accomplished by the end of the day. Revisit that list at day’s end to see whether or not your goals were reached, reminding yourself that the journey is often more important than the goals themselves.
• Every evening, write down everything in your day that provided you with a sense of satisfaction, fulfillment or joy.
• Slow down. Performing your duties at a leisurely pace will help you avoid emotional exhaustion and an over-stimulated nervous system.
• Take regular breaks from your work to breathe deeply, stretch, meditate or read inspirational writings.
• Walk outside and enjoy the fresh air.
• Pray often, experiencing the presence of peace, love or joy without specifics or conditions.
• Write a letter (saying something good or bad) that you have never had a chance to say to someone you wanted to say it to. Whether or not you ever send the letter, writing it will unburden your soul.
• Hug another person, a pet or a tree. Better yet, give someone a compliment with no expectation of anything in return.
• Give something of material value to someone who may need your assistance. You never know when, where or from whom your kindness will be returned to you.
