Eyes Wide Shut ~

Have you ever noticed when somethings on your mind its all you seem to focus on? If you’re thinking about buying a motorcycle for example, they appear every where you look. If you’re trying to make babies, you see nothing but cute little people everywhere! Ya I know, two very different examples, but hey…different is good! Is it the Law of Attraction or are we just opening our eyes and becoming aware?

Have you ever thought about someone and at that moment the phone rings and its them? Or you run into someone you haven’t seen in years just as you were thinking about them? These sort of things have been happening to me since I can remember.

Every thought is made up of energy so it makes perfect sense really. I think we all get caught up in our daily routines and we tune out in general. We are unaware, closed down, running on auto pilot. We have become comfortably numb. WAKE UP! When was the last time you stood underneath a Cherry Tree in full bloom and just admired the buds about to explode. We can’t just keep walking by or tuning out the world that surrounds us.

I think our conscious mind gets lost when we keep ignoring the simple treasures that present themselves to us. We are full of fragmented thoughts bubbling over while we try to make sense of our busy day.

Meditation opens up the mind and clears those thoughts, allowing the mind to be free of clutter. When our conscious mind get full we are blinded and stop seeing the beauty that is swirling around us. The obvious becomes transparent. We have our Eyes Wide Shut.

Meditation doesn’t have to be the traditional sitting with legs crossed. It can be riding your motorcycle, reading, running, yoga, painting or simply listening to music. I know it’s hard for some people to just sit and do nothing but the more you do, you will see how much more clarity your life will have. You will feel the calm envelope you and appreciate the silence! Its like spring cleaning of the mind, organizing thoughts, dreams or wishes. And when you focus on what’s important in your life, you will reap the benefits of awakening your mind.

Becoming aware is a way of tuning back in. When we focus on our surroundings they become alive. When we trust and listen to the thoughts that appear out of nowhere, and react to them, we strengthen our intuitive ability. When we open our eyes and mind to the truth, its like a gift from the Universe. If we can consciously awaken to the life that surrounds us, and truly be in the moment, we may be surprised at what is right there in front of us! Open your eyes if just for a moment…and see!
