The world draws us out
Yet the answer lies within
Find Your Middle Ground

When we connect to our center of being, our Middle Ground, we begin to attune to our authentic self and feel empowered. The external demanding world loses its pull and power. We feel more able to be true to ourselves.

If we really want this, then what actions can we take to make it happen?

Most of already know this … Turning off the cellphone, not watching local news or feeds of coronavirus updates, or Trump twitters that churn up our minds, fears and egos, and unsettle our hearts.

Becoming centered is more about us connecting to our heart, rather than our head. The analytical ego-mind, gets all too easily pulled into the drama and fear. When we touch into our heart and the felt sense of the body, we connect to something greater than ourselves. That which is beyond.

Take time today and every day to Find Your Middle Ground.

  2. Needed this reminder – it’s so easy for me to be pulled into the repetitive news cycles – hoping for a sign that things will change. Thank you, Val!

  4. Wise words Val…. May we all learn to switch off, and tune into our inner selves and discover our centres as we tap into our hearts and expand self love and respect…. And may we see the answer lies in treating each other with the respect and love that we ourselves wish for.. The ripple effect then creates a domino effect as more people discover themselves… and their hearts…

    Loved your wisdom Val.. Have a blessed week my friend ❤ 🙏💚

      • It is all we can do Val…. and each ripple sent out is never lost.. ❤ And the words on my Gavitar profile have always spoken of the ripples..
        "Each of us, carries within us the capacity to change the world in small ways for better or worse. Everything we do and think affects the people in our lives, and their reactions in turn affect others

        As the effect of a seemingly insignificant word passes from person to person, its impact grows and can become a source of great joy, inspiration, anxiety, or pain.

        Your thoughts and actions are like stones dropped into still waters, causing ripples to spread and expand as they move outward..

        I hope that I can send a few ripples out via the web of life, as we each of us weave the threads together… "
        May we keep them flowing through the web dearest Val.. Thank YOU dear friend ❤

        • You said it better than I could, Sue. We must live our truth, not simply preach it. It’s why I have not been on WP much these days. Perhaps I will return soon … Blessings. And of course to you, Val! ❤

  11. Such an important post, with ideas that are even more important to come back to and remind ourselves to re-center. Especially these days because so much attention is tuned into: the cellphone, local news or feeds of coronavirus updates, and Trump twitters and politics in general, It gives us no time for ourselves. Cheers to you and finding our middle ground.
