Where do you invest your time and money? Do you worry about not having enough? Do you spend on things “out there” (outside of yourself)? Do you run around all day unfocused, not using your time well and not feeling your best physically?
Spending money on “things” leaves us feeling empty. The media attempts to program us to want the newest, best and latest items. But in the wee hours of the morning alone with ourselves we may feel an empty longing and loneliness; a desire to connect. We may not feel well physically, either.
Buying another “thing” will not fill that void. An investment of time and money into our internal being is the only answer. Do you feel like you lack direction, motivation and clarity or even care that you are missing those qualities? Do you feel fatigued, spaced out, overweight, depressed, anxious, empty or even fearful?
The thoughts we think dictate how we feel and the feelings we have dictate how we think. How our brain and body work together dictate how everything appears to us. Imagine looking through a camera with a blue filter. Everything looks blue, right? What if you could change the color of that filter or remove it completely?
Time spent getting clarity and aligning ourselves internally is the key. Looking outside of ourselves for things/people/substances to validate and satisfy us is futile. We are the captain of our ship, choosing our direction and destination and if we are aimlessly floating at the mercy of whatever current is the strongest, we have lost our way.
Could you benefit from getting back on course, re-aligning, taking charge of your life, getting clear on your direction, being the master of your body and mind and learning new ways to connect and control yourself on many levels? Investing your time and money into yourself in that way and working with a trained and experienced professional you connect and resonate with, could be the best investment of your life.
