Feng Shui Tip: Hit the Pause Button!

In yoga it is said that the way we transition from one pose to another is just as important as doing the actual pose itself.

If you think about it, many things have a transition time. Every time we get out of bed, we make a few positions in order to finally rise up. Every time we get out of a chair, it takes us a few extra steps to reach a standing position. We may not notice it, but it does happen.

The ones who live in a place where there are seasons are now experiencing the transition from summer to autumn. We’re leaving a period that perhaps was filled with constant barbeques, entertaining out-of-school kids, traveling, and playing sports.

Now, we’re entering the going-back-to-school, returning-to-regular- work hours, and checking-out-the-sweater situation.

It’s also a time to pause.

This is one of the best times to replenish you. Sit quietly outdoors and observe how nature is changing. My sunflowers are still in bloom, but I can see a difference in the leaves on the trees. We can really benefit from reflecting now, as we prepare for our own transition to the next point in our lives.

Write down in a journal anything you’ve learned in the past few months. Is there anything that can help you move forward? Have you realized that there is something you don’t like or you are just putting up with? Have you realized that there is something you really want to accomplish?

Reflecting now can only help us in our upcoming future. Mapping out what we are doing for the rest of the year can only makes us more productive. Because before you know it, the crazy holiday season will be here. Soon we’ll be “dropping the ball” (pun intended) and welcoming 2014, even if we’re not ready for it.

For your homework this month: Stop. Pause. Admire nature and relish the transition to your next pose.

Until next month…
