Transformation Tips Tuesday – The Word of the Day is Calm with Reiki Master, Donna McDine
The word of the day is CALM…
I often admire those that can remain CALM in any situation thrown their way. How do they do it and not allow others anxiety or negativity squash their sense of calm?
For many years, my reaction to situations I could not control or the added pressure of life circumstances was to become anxious and tense. Over time through different relationships and reading about what meditation can do for your mind, body and soul, I began “practicing” it on a daily basis. Once meditation became a habit, I was able to invoke deep-breathing practices even with my eyes open while tending to the situation at hand. My inner self has become calmer with a step-by-step reaction to most situations.
By taking a proactive approach of small steps rather than focusing on the big picture, I’m able to dissect most situations with a sense of calm. For instance, when my husband was diagnosed with eye-socket and eyeball cancer, I immediately went into research mode. Coupled with patience and calmly listening to the doctors and absorbing what the action plan was to ensure my husband’s health, I was much more useful to my husband and daughters rather than becoming an emotional wreck. Not to say I didn’t have my moments. Thankfully the doctors saved my husband’s eye and he is now cancer free.
I am a true believer of meditation and prayer to invoke a sense of calm in one’s daily life and highly recommend giving it a chance. After 20 plus days of focusing on a sense of calm, it will become a habit you will cherish.
What do you currently practice or would like to do to invoke calmness in your daily life?
Wishing you a day of calm!
