Many may think that it is necessary to always be actively doing something in order to feel productive. The ego loves to make us feel we need to stay busy rather than take time to relax, let go, rest, and simply be. It likes to keep the mind busy and distracted. It also enjoys making one feel like there is a race against time, which is an illusion.
At times Spirit may guide us to pause and do nothing for awhile. When there is something on my agenda to do, but I am not feeling Spirit’s guidance to work on it at that moment, I have learned to hold off until I get the go ahead to proceed. With Spirit in charge, all is in divine timing and order. This is different than the ego’s fear-based guidance which always wants us to work through strain and tries to push and force things to happen. With Spirit as our guide, there is no strain and everything flows with ease.
Even if there are deadlines for our projects, when we let Spirit be our guide, all are met in perfect timing and in the perfect way. During moments when I don’t feel the creative inspiration for a specific project coming through, I give myself extra time to relax and do other activities that are joyful and that nurture my well-being. I know that it will burst through when it is ready. Taking some time for relaxation and fun is vital for everyone. One may think it is counter-productive to take a day or two away from a project to just unwind for awhile. However, when we do, we rebalance, harmonize and gain clarity.
Everyone has different ways to unwind. I find going for a walk in nature, watching a funny movie, or listening to uplifting, high-vibrational music to be beneficial. Giving ourselves these moments creates the opening for Spirit’s inspiration to flow through. Ideas, insights, realizations, answers, and creativity then pours through clearly without hindrance. I have noticed this happen whenever I give myself these moments to pause. So actually by taking a little time out to let go for awhile, we become more productive and get better results. The manifestations that result are divine ones as they are created with Spirit expressing through us.
Spirit’s guidance always provides a feeling and sense of upliftment, hope, unconditional love, and gives solutions and answers that are a benefit to all. The ego’s guidance is fear-based, judgemental of the self and/or others, and is competitive. Spirit offers joy and peace, while the ego offers only gloom and doom. When we choose to take action that is inspired from Spirit, the outcome is always a blessing to ourselves and others.
