Time Out!

Sometimes the universe holds up a big stop sign. Right in front of us!  When this happens you know it’s time to take a break.  This usually happens when a period of stress or over exertion comes to an end.  It doesn’t happen when you are right in the middle of it – no – it waits until you are finally feeling great and ready to take on the world again.  Something will happen.  You get sick, your plans don’t work out, your motivation disappears – something will make you stop. 

Rather than panic, it’s time to treat yourself to a little tenderness.  Take time out!  and smell the roses.  Make yourself a cuppa and put your feet up with a good book. 

During these periods of down time meditate (even for a few minutes).  Sit outside and commune with nature, feel the earth beneath your feet, lay on your back and watch the clouds float across the sky, walk, sleep, and allow your creative juices to replenish themselves. 

This is particularly important to those artists and healers who are empaths.  Get into the habit of allowing yourself some time out each week to replenish and regroup – before the universe holds up that big stop sign!

When has the universe held up that STOP sign for you?  Did you learn your lesson – or did you keep going until you were down to the last drop?
