Currently: Sitting in my office with all the windows open, listening to the rain outside + felt inspired to write. These are my thoughts today.
To purposely slow down is to save your life.
Going too fast, you miss things.
Life needs balance –
I had to slow it down, get offline a bit and breathe.
I needed to mentally cleanse…
Spiritually + physically cleanse as well – those two just take a bit longer and are more involved.
More on that later.
As an empath, the inner-g of the internet and social networking can very easily become overwhelming and can affect my well being.
When I notice a change or slip into an episode, getting off the internet for a while is key.
I then assess where I have been spending my online time, decide if the bulk of what I get out of this ‘place’ is helpful or not.
If it’s not helpful, then it has to go. I delete my account.
Once I’ve cleared all negative or problematic accounts, I remove myself totally from the online experience for at least a day or two.
Once I feel centered again, I venture back online to tend to my business or network.
Spiritually cleansing involves taking herbal baths or salt baths, prayer, fasting, lighting candles and other things.
Physical cleansing always involves some type of physical activity.
That’s basically how I (try to) stay balanced.
Not that things always go as planned because you know who laughs at our plans…
