A busy day…

Spa days and laundrette days seem to go together for me; lots of sloshing and cleaning and whirling about…

I am just back from the ‘lavandaria’, having really enjoyed the experience, slightly reminding me of university days… Sitting and watching clothes whirl about can be very relaxing, a washing machine meditation!

Making every single thing that we do a meditation allows us to fully live; to fully be with ourselves and so to fully be with others… Nothing is a waste of time, sitting in front of a whirling mass of clothes and feeling the stillness in the centre of the whirl is a very good use of time indeed ?

In every activity there is a still place beyond the movement of the energy going round and round, up and down, changing from light to dark, hard to soft, fast to slow…

Beyond this there is silence…

It isn’t necessarily that we need to ‘take a break’ or ‘have a holiday’ or ‘take time off…’ Although those things are all lovely things to do –  but it’s more important that we find the way to be at ease all the time – so that we never feel the need to get off the treadmill… Instead we are the treadmill, making our own pace, we are the road along which we are travelling…

We can always go to the place of silence where we do not fear anything… We may swing between stress and relaxation, worry and ease; but finding the still point means that we will not fall into a place of fear – it means we can recognise our life as an evolution always into something new, beyond the swings of worry and ease, light and dark, joy and sorrow…

After my live broadcast on Facebook, which I absolutely loved – the energy with others there is such fun – I drove to Famara beach where the tide was so low, and the expanse of beach so vast, that just standing and watching the scene was a delight. I ran again the length of the beach and back again before returning to meet Anadi for breakfast and then to the Spa… !

What a busy day ?

I sloshed and pummelled my body in the whirlpool, and dipped it into the cold plunge of icy water – and out again into the steam… Like my clothes I was cleansing and tumbling it about – loving being in a great big washing machine; feeling the experiences through this body, whilst knowing I am not the body…

Our body is the conduit through which our spirit experiences, knows itself, has the opportunity to see in the whirl and tumble of life where it is not still or silent – and so to meditate on the movement and find the stillness right in the core of our being…

Experiencing life on planet earth gives us the opportunity to learn about ourselves and free ourselves… The harvest full moon on Wednesday, heralded the energy of passion and of going for what we truly want, where our heart calls us to go, despite perceived obstacles… If we listen to our heart and follow fearlessly, we will of course be treading the untrodden path…

Life is an untrodden path; but by daring to keep going forward when we know not where the path leads, reveals to us ourselves and the magic of this limitless universe reflected in the energy of each step…

After my spa I had another reflexology treatment.

My feet enjoyed the experience and so too did my whole body, energy moving, releasing clearing as I lay enjoying the silence outside and within me…

And as often occurs, when I have a treatment, I felt that I could happily stay there forever…  I am a pussy cat of the highest order and could happily be stroked and massaged all day long… ? But the laundrette meditation beckoned me and so I went… !
