Imagine you are sitting by a clear mountain stream. The air is pure and clear. Take a deep breath and revel in the feeling of the air flowing into your lungs. Release gently. Feel a slight coolness in the air mingling with the warmth of the sun. Imagine your bare feet on the smooth rocks or the cool grasses. Watch the wildflowers waving in the wind. Perhaps you’d prefer a beach or a forest. That’s ok too. Imagine a beautiful, peaceful, and happy place and just “be” there, in your inner world. Relax. Breathe deeply. Enjoy the “view’ or the sensation. Bask in the serenity. Take your time and come back when you please.
While this exercise seems simple – perhaps pleasant but not so meaningful – there is actually great value in your moments of relaxation. When you relax, your field naturally attunes itself to higher frequencies. We can channel our love and healing energy into your field and to help attune your energy to what you desire. In relaxation, your body naturally opens, energetically, and physically to the circulation of blood, lymph, nerve signals, and Divine love.
There are as many ways to relax as there are humans on the planet. You can find peace in meditation, during a quiet walk, or by observing waves on the beach or the stars twinkling in the heavens. You can relax by silently watching a candle flame, enjoying a stroll with your dog, or listening to beautiful music. Some of you find certain activities relaxing – cooking, jogging, skiing, or even playing video games. The ways in which people relax are endless. Only you know what works best for you.
Far from being lazy, when you relax you are deeply connected with the Source of all creation, and therefore open to love, grace, goodness, and guidance.
Relaxation is far different from choosing to numb yourself. Relaxation calms the mind and draws you into the present moment with strong feelings of contentment, appreciation, or bliss. Numbing, on the other hand, intentionally prevents you from feeling.
The actions that induce either relaxation or numbing may look the same. The energy that you bring to the moment is what makes the difference. For example, you can reach for a glass of wine with an intention to drown your sorrows, or you can reach for a glass of wine and be fully present to the experience. You can savor its scent and taste, enjoy its warmth, and revel in the good feelings of relaxation it engenders. In the first case, it is an act of numbing that pinches you off from the higher frequencies; in the second example, it is a mindful act that opens you to higher frequencies.
Likewise, there are children who play video games to avoid unpleasant feelings, and who use the games to numb out. Meanwhile, there are many who play video games because they feel passionate and vibrantly alive with all senses and positive feelings fully engaged. They are intensely present, immersed in a world of intuitive feeling beyond mind, and deeply relaxed. Similarly, you can numb out by watching television. or you can watch and revel in the moment with contentment, and appreciation.
Unless you are consistently happy, passionate, and eagerly engaged in life, there is nothing better you can do to elevate your energy, than to create time each day to enjoy some form of relaxation.
When faced with challenges or problems, relax before you jump into action. Breathe. Escape to your inner paradise as we’ve guided you or, if you prefer, choose any other method of relaxation that works for you.
Many still think that relaxing is just a way to temporarily escape the “real” world. We in the heavens view it as a way to attune yourself to a world that is more real than the one that your physical senses perceive. Relaxation allows you to naturally tap into the world of energy and good feelings – a world of incredible love, wonder, peace, serenity, harmony, order, and joy that lives just beneath the surface of all you perceive.
Relax more often. Allow your vibration to rise naturally, and therefore draw to you a better and kinder future, all the while enjoying deep peace, and serenity in the here and now.
God Bless You! We love you so very much.
