Soul Coaching Day 6: Lightening Up

I am amazed by synchronicity. I love when it shows up. Soul Coaching today was about taking time to relax, and it's the day I booked to go to the spa! And on top of that the OSHO Zen Card I picked today was "go with the flow." It has a picture of someone floating in water. And I certainly did that today!

I'm very thankful for the little extra push to stick with my appointment and spend the day relaxing by the pool. This morning a part of me was thinking, I'll be more relaxed if I get things done, clear that paper clutter, get my administrative work in order. But there will always be something to do, so if you go that route you may never, ever take time to simply enjoy. Today was crucial in clearing my body of tension-clutter and freeing my mind of thinking, thinking, thinking. I'm enjoying the spaciousness.

I am a Zen teacup, emptying.

Today I also spontaneously thought - I need a massage, and booked one (for tomorrow though). You look so comfy in your spa robe :)

Even the word "spa" relaxes me. :)

Facials de-clutter your skin from toxins.
Massages de-clutter your muscles from deposits.
Steam baths de-clutter your whole body of pollution.

And this all happens in a peaceful, meditative state. How magical! :)

I say you got a lot of de-cluttering done today young lady! :)

Thank you for the lovely message you left on my blog! I appreciate it so much! :)

Excellent point Genie.

Jamie, you look sooooo adorable. I'm so glad you pampered your soul today.

Wonderful to see you looking so relaxed. What I love most about spas is that there isn´t anything unnecessary around...and you go in with just a book and wear a simple bathrobe - no clutter - which makes it much easier to be still and listen.

You are a zen teacup! Just look at your beauty in that reflection. I am so glad after seeing the crazy schedule that you life that you are taking time for silence, for floating, for breathing.
