Graciella speaks. I channel her words, wisdom and sentiment. -Theresa
Prisoner/Prisionera: Graciella tells us that so often being a prisoner is a state of mind. That is not to say that those who are actual prisoners are in the position to leave the state of seclusion whenever they want. Although, what they do in their minds and actions may affect their outcomes.
Today, this message is directed at those who have allowed themselves to become virtual prisoners in their minds. Those who are secluded due to the pandemic have choices in how they spend their time. Are you allowing the seeds of creativity to bloom? Are you looking at ways to keep busy within the confines of your living situation. Ridding self of the external clutter that has collected over the years may be a perfect way of ridding self of the clutter gathered within.
Many of us have claimed we’ve been too busy to stop and clear out a drawer or a closet. That we’ve not had time to remove the weeds from the border of perennials we planted and haven’t managed to maintain. That oven can use your help. The top shelf of linens that hasn’t been touched in fifteen years can be dispensed of and maybe given to someone else who is in need if the linen is still in good condition.
The idea of clearing out the external environments we reside in may not be inviting. The resulting feelings of accomplishment and renewal when we do engage in these clearings can be wonderful and satisfying.
Today, I will observe my surroundings and see how I can make a change.
In light and love,
Graciella and Theresa
