Everyone Has 24 Hours in a Day, by Dr Candess M Campbell
I am delighted to be involved in this 10th anniversary year of Live Encounters Magazine. In 2011, on a flight to Osaka, Japan to facilitate an Earth Karma clearing workshop, I wrote the first draft of Live Simply: Less is More. Several times I planned to publish, but, if you are an author, you understand the book either writes itself or it rights the author. Live Simply has been changing and gifting me. The novel I am writing though, is writing itself. My main character Sus takes me places that scare me. This year I have been moving into Living Simply and I love it. I am aware of how important it is to slow down to be able to connect with your deeper self. Meditation and journaling are fantastic and when you live simply, you connect with yourSelf in a natural way. Live Simply reduces stress and promotes relaxation! Enjoy this sample in anticipation of the publication in early 2019!
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
― Mahatma Gandhi
Have you felt like you had to juggle it all to make your commitments each day? Whether you’re scattered or organized, most of us tend to over-schedule ourselves. Even the weekends get planned so tightly that by Monday, you feel tired and ready for a break. Do you have trouble distinguishing between what is important and what becomes habit?
I remember one day when my young daughter Charisma asked me to take her to go play with a friend. My response was that I was too busy and couldn’t take her. I didn’t have time. She looked at me and said, “Mom, everyone has 24 hours in a day.” Interestingly, this statement shocked me! I didn’t realize I had wound myself so tight. I wasn’t even aware of how much I had over-scheduled and how it affected my children. We all have 24 hours in a day! You can choose how you spend your time.
Several years ago in an intuitive session with a client, I saw an image of an open book in his heart chakra. In the book, I saw several countries and several cultures. When I shared this, he said that he and his wife had planned to travel when they retired, but she had become ill with cancer. He said that she wanted him to do some traveling without her. I sensed he was grieving and didn’t want to go alone. From the image in his heart, though, I sensed that if he didn’t go, he would suffer energetically, having dreamed of his trip for years. Energy stuck in the heart chakra, or any chakra can create stress and possibly illness. If his wife felt guilty because he didn’t go, like he suggested, this may affect her health negatively as well. His choices were many. I am not sure what he decided to do, but my hope is he was able to travel with a friend or his children and record some of the trip and share it with his wife. As a friend of mine always says, “Life is short.”
A Soul Stem is a writing prompt that takes you deeper within yourself where you will be able to access your own Soul information!
In my book Live Intuitively: Journal the Wisdom of your Soul, readers are guided to intuitively read their own chakras and journaling with the symbols they receive. I teach how to create a soul stem that takes them even deeper into their own amazing being!
Here is the writing process. Choose an inexpensive spiral notebook where you can be messy. Use a fast writing pen.
Set a timer for 10 – 20.
Start with a Soul Stem such as these.
What takes up too much of my time is . . .
What I really want to do is . . .
If I were living my ideal life, I would . . .
I am energized when . . .
I am exhausted when . . .
One small step I can make today to free up time is . . .
Continue writing for 10 – 20 minutes. Don’t worry about punctuation or spelling, just keep your pen moving. If you get stuck, just write “I am stuck or I’ don’t know what to write” over and over until something else comes up.
You will probably start with something that is on the surface, and then move into resistance (I don’t want to do this, my hand hurts, this is boring) and then eventually you move into what is really going on deep within you.
It may take 3 or 4 sessions to get to this point, but don’t give up.
This is a commitment to connecting with your SELF!
It takes less time and energy to plan and execute something fun than it does to keep rehashing reasons why you shouldn’t do it!
Sit in an upright position with your spine straight. Take a couple deep breaths. Relax your body. Allow yourself to relax into your sitting position. Listen to the sounds that are close by and then listen to the sounds far away. Focus on your breath for a few minutes and just relax. Bring your attention to between your eyes and a little above your eyes. This is your third eye. Envision a blue triangle that you look through with a gaze. Soften your eyes. When thoughts come up, just let them go by.
Look over the answers to your Soul Stem exercise. Write out what you want to create. As you create in your life what you desire, time expands, and the energy that has been focused on what you do not want will shift. Visualize yourself living your dream. See yourself relaxing and enjoying what you desire. Use your senses to really experience what you desire. Feel it, sense it and live it in the visualization now.
Message to the Universe:
After you have created the image of what you desire, send the message to the Universe. Let it go and don’t take it back. Let it be and know it will unfold. Be sure to be open to it unfolding differently than you might expect.
Some people like to create a “God/Goddess Box. This is any box you enjoy, be it simple or ornate. Write out your desires and give it to your God/Goddess/Universe by placing your intention in the box and leaving it. Check back in a few weeks or months and you will be surprised how well you manifest!
Wishing you a blessed year in 2019! Focus in your heart and allow yourself to receive!
