As the month of February comes to a close, I’d like to talk about a relationship that can offer a world of peace and has the potential to free you from unnecessary anxiety and control. I’d like to talk about your relationship with a Higher Power. One of the attributes of Healthy and Happy Centenarians is that they believe in a Higher Power. They believe that there is a benevolent being or source in the universe and that all is unfolding in absolute divine perfection.

There are enormous benefits to staying connected with your Higher Power or Spiritual Guidance. When we let go of control over outcomes and surrender to the guidance of our spiritual connection, our lives become much more centered and peaceful.

When is the last time you struggled with a major decision? You may have lost many nights of sleep and spent countless hours of your day worrying about your ability to make the best choice. Quieting the mind and being still enough to connect with our Higher Power gives us access to our truth. It allows us to make clear and conscious decisions. When we feel connected, major decisions become easier to make. The right path presents itself.

How often do you find yourself feeling unworthy of love or happiness? Feelings of self worth and negative self talk can erode our capacity for living fully in the present and experiencing joy, creativity and success. When we connect to our Higher Power, those feelings of self doubt melt away. We feel loved because we realize that we are love.

Do you ever feel like you are alone? Even when we enjoy the blessings of a loving family or partner, there are times in which we can feel completely alone in the world. When we re-connect to our Higher Power, we no longer feel alone or isolated.

Next time you find yourself fearing or resisting the tide of events, take the time to connect with your Higher Power. For some, prayer is the fastest way to make this connection. For others, meditation is their path of access. There is no one way to achieve connection. Some feel connected when they are in nature, others when they sit and read an inspirational book or journal. Surrender into the heart of knowing that you are always loved and supported unconditionally!

Here is today’s Vital Reset ReMINDer:

Surrender means accepting this moment, this body, and this life with open arms. Surrender involves getting out of your own way and living in accord with a higher will, expressed as the wisdom of the heart. Far more than passive acceptance, surrender uses every challenge as a means of spiritual growth and expanded awareness. Dan Millman

My very best wishes for an exceptional day and to your long and vital life.
