The tightrope walk of life and the safety net that is there if only we can still our fears and worries long enough to see it.

Everyone out there is acting to the best of their abilities at any given time; some are carrying a very heavy load with sheer tiredness causing loss of balance and blurred perception, some have been stuck in a situation for so long that a sound sense of their known reality has gone and the realisation of a new one is shaky for them right now and some can see no way out no matter what is around them.

In my earlier years I had the belief that if I didn’t run full pelt at things, as hard as I could, then the sky would come crashing down. Tackling life full on at warp factor 10 was my insurance policy as things couldn’t possibly get any worse if I was trying so hard could they? I lost my balance and distorted my view and stuck myself in situations that were over long before I called time on them.

When life presents challenges take time out to listen to your inner voice because with an energy running through everything in us, around us and in every action, taking time out is a good thing.

Giving your mind a rest from your worries, and the fears that go with them, connects you to a different energy. This energy allows you to hear your inner voice and supports you because you are doing what you should be doing at any given time. You are an imperfect human in an imperfect world and by listening to your inner voice you do what ‘feels’ right and it gives your overloaded system a much needed rest.

This energy is your safety net.
