Tips for Balance (by Selacia)

The following are some suggestions for staying in balance during these chaotic times. Review this list when you begin to feel on overload, when you realize that you have multiple decisions to make, and when you are either anxious or depressed.
1. Step back from thinking-and-doing mode and tune into your heart. Your heart will help guide you to the next steps. Sometimes that next step is to be still. In the stillness, you can better hear your inner wisdom, and you can be refueled for greater creativity.
2. If you are seeing troubles at every turn, remember that it is the energy of goodness that fuels creation. At a core level, the quality of goodness is within you, and it is within everyone you meet. Focus on wishing others goodness - without agenda or condition - and you generate a positive vibration. It is easier to wish goodness like this for those you love. The path of the Divine Changemaker is to wish goodness for all, including strangers and those who oppose you. Becoming skilled at this is a part of your path. Set your intent to see the goodness in the world, and in other people.
3. When you are facing a problem, consider talking about it less. Give the dilemma less energy by focusing on it less. This means reducing the amount of time you think about it, talk about it, and worry about it. Set your intention to give your energy to positive changes and to noticing things to be grateful for.
4. Even in your darkest moments, you can cultivate a feeling of gratitude. When you do this, you raise your frequency. It is like an energy tonic. When you are feeling expansive from expressing gratitude, your naturally generate positivity. A more positive point of view can open the door to new possibilities and innovative solutions for your life.
5. Some days when life has become complex and stressful, it may be challenging to access your center. It may be difficult to appreciate your circumstances, or to feel a real connection with the world. In those moments, think of something bigger than you that inspires you-something that reminds you of the interconnectedness of all life. Think of something that's more beautiful than what you are seeing in your life. Examples include a double rainbow, a majestic redwood tree, and the sun setting on a sparkling blue ocean.
6. Let go of trying to fit in or have what others have. When you go into nature, the flower or tree that catches your eye is not a carbon copy of others. It stands out because of its uniqueness. There is something different about how it catches the light, its color, or its overall feel. Know that you are like the flower or tree. It's okay to be different. You don't need to look like the others, or be like them either. You shine most brightly when you are genuine and not pretending to be like the crowd.
7. Do you want to have more joy in your life? Consider lightening up as you approach your work, your relationships, and yourself. When you take life too seriously, you become too attached to outcomes and are less able to accept what is. A too-serious approach will kill your joy because you will be trying too hard. Lighten up today, then, and discover the joy that's naturally there.
8. When you want to feel more peace, think of a beautiful nature scene with water or go there if you can. Imagine the calm, life-giving water. Invite into your energy field the element of water. Intend that this opens you to a flow of goodness and love. This energy flow is boundless. You have plenty for yourself, and plenty to give to others. Give some away! You then expand the flow of goodness and love in the world.
