Once a month on Monday nites I get together with a group of men and we reflect on our lifes and life in general. This Mon nite we changed the routine. We had a drumming circle…I was able to get out of my head..to feel… to let go. It reminded me of the freedom that music and rhythm has to get you into the moment.
Whenever I play music I feel that freedom to express myself nonverbally… The challenge is to trust your intuition as much as your analytical mind….Most people don’t do this in Western culture…they’re trying to figure it out in their head…but in some cultures intuitions are trusted and seen as more real than conclusions based on analytical thinking. We can learn a great deal from incorporating this way into our own life.
What are five things you can do in the next week to honor this feeling. Let me make a suggestion? Spend some time in nature….start the day with 15-20 minutes of quiet time …visualize what your highlite of the day is going to be…..do something creative…..spend some time with uplifting people…..You can add to the list. If you have time in the Leadership Development section on my site there is an article entitled…Start your Day on Your Terms that talks about the importance of starting the day with intention.
