in Daily Life

WHY I USE PAUSE IN MY DAILY LIFE

Pause is extremely helpful for me when I am tasked with a creative project, and I don’t feel particularly creative. I am able Pause and be open to Another Way of seeing the project and Inspiration flows in as images and phrases.
I try to use the Pause Practice every day in my daily life. Some days I am not as successful as on other days. I tell myself this is ‘OK’ and the Pause Practice IS a practice!
I use The Pause Practices in daily life because I know they work WHEN I use them! I have one moment at a time just like you. In my work with Pause be it admin, spontaneity, technology, teaching, networking, creating, delegating; just when I think I know what’s best, I will pause, and I receive a wiser way. Just when I’m ready to react in an unhelpful way, instead of choosing to disconnect and distance, I can choose to get out of my own way and see I have a choice! I can say & do what will lead to connecting with another and we can integrate our inner resources ~ this is what it is to heal and be truly helpful.
I can listen to my inner
Wisdom, I can break free of habits that simply don’t work, I can let Wisdom
lead the way and for a peaceful, joyful, productive, and meaningful day,
I can follow!

One day, one hour, one moment at a time…
