The definition of Immerse Yourself is to completely involve yourself into what it is that you are doing, feeling, receiving, thinking and wishing to manifest. In other words, Being Present.
We tend to live in the past—playing in our minds old worn out records of hurts, disappointments and fears, or we dwell in the future with worries and even more fears of what’s to come and/or projections of the worst that can happen. (Notice in both instances, the word fear is the main ingredient).
Immerse Yourself more fully, more deeply into Your Life. It is your most precious of Gifts and though we are undergoing an intense period with a lot of pain, fear, anxiety, suffering and uncertainty, the challenge at hand is to work through it in the most productive way possible—use this time to reconnect to Self, fall in Love with Living, reset and/or strengthen goals, call that person who makes you laugh hysterically that you've lost touch with, start a new project, business or collaboration, visit Nature & say Thank You, start a Mindfulness Practice, Breathe Consciously, Become Your own BFF, write, paint, cook, laugh harder, have more fun, Enjoy Yourself & LIVE with Intention, Presence and AWARENESS.
The more we Live peripherally as spectators in our own lives and don’t Immerse ourselves in the business of LIVING the more we add to our already high stress-anxiety levels, and the more we do that, we chip away at ourselves little by little…and before we know it, moments, days, weeks, years fly by. We say, ‘where did the time go it’s just flown by so fast! Yeah, time truly does feel like it’s accelerating, and being absent more in our Lives than Being Present REALLY makes the time fly by because we are absent for much of the time and we’re worrying, fearful, anxious, stressed. That eats up time like a big dog! And weakens our immune systems as well as the makings of unhappy people.
See what you can do today see how you can Immerse Yourself in Living! It doesn’t have to be a huge ticket item, taking note of the ‘small’ things that happen add up to a big ticket item if you choose to see it that way (it’s a much more Peaceful way to Be); Invest in Yourself.
There are so many pearls in this quote from the civil rights legend John Lewis:
"Never let anyone—any person or any force—dampen, dim or diminish your light. Study the path of others to make your way easier and more abundant. Lean toward the whispers of your own heart, discover the universal truth, and follow its dictates. Release the need to hate, to harbor division, and the enticement of revenge. Release all bitterness. Hold only love, only peace in your heart, knowing that the battle of good to overcome evil is already won. Choose confrontation wisely, but when it is your time don't be afraid to stand up, speak up, and speak out against injustice. And if you follow your truth down the road to peace and the affirmation of love, if you shine like a beacon for all to see, then the poetry of all the great dreamers and philosophers is yours to manifest in a nation, a world community, and a Beloved Community that is finally at peace with itself."
Again, the question is, what can You do Today to feel Invigorated, Inspired, Recharged, Positive, ALIVE? Souls are leaving this planet in rapid fire fashion, don’t squander your Life in worry, fear and unhappiness, IMMERSE YOURSELF IN LIVING. The simplest of things can take You there...always Connect to the Wellspring of Life. Start by taking a pause, Breathe DEEP, fill Yourself up with air, exhale slow & long, believe it or not, a moment of Peace is always a Conscious Breath away...
IMMERSE YOURSELF. Immerse Yourself more fully into Living Your Life. When You truly are engaged in activities, Thoughts and Intentions that are enjoyable, when You make it a priority to put more Joy, more ZEN, more ZEST into Your Life’s Recipe, Your outlook shifts dramatically and You will be able to better navigate these tumultuous times. These days are like earthquakes, floods, tornadoes and hurricanes all occurring at once but as we bear witness to current events as well as being participants, don’t allow the ways of Living Your Life to the Fullest fall off Your radar.
Remember, All is Energy and Positive Energy affects Positively.
