From Healing with the Angels by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D
The Angels know that you’re busy, with many earthly demands on your time. They want to help you with your responsibilities through the process of balance. Whenever our schedules become disproportionate, our energy drops. Lowered energy creates the illusion that there isn’t enough time in the day, so a vicious cycle of time limitations ensues.
Balance comes in physical, emotional, and spiritual forms. Being in balance may mean something different to each individual. For me, having a balanced life means creating time for the things I must do, as well as the things I like to do. We must all eat and sleep each day. Many of us have jobs or attend school but it is up to each of us to create harmony between our life responsibilities and our activities that bring us pleasure, personal fulfillment, and rejuvenation. Eating healthy and finding time to do some form of physical exercise on a routine basis creates physical balance in our bodies. Adequate rest and sleep are also necessary for our bodies to rejuvenate and feel refreshed, so we can take on other activities in our lives.
Balance also means making time for friends and family as this is part of our emotional balance. Having a support system is important and makes us feel cared for and loved, knowing there is someone else that cares about our wellbeing. It is also a good feeling to be supportive for another person that you love and care for. When a relationship is in balance, the circle of giving and receiving is complete and you know you have been blessed with a loving and caring person in your life that also recognizes the need for balance.
It is also important to find quiet and down time as well as fun and playful time. Quiet or down time allows us to rejuvenate and refocus. This becomes our spiritual balance. Your body, mind, and spirit need time to refuel. Take some down time each day to reflect on the things that are important to you. Refuel your soul. This can be done in the form of yoga, meditation, or by simply just being quiet while listening to relaxing music. Use this time to reconnect with your inner spirit. Connect with your self-love and your appreciation for all that you have. This will create peace for you within your day and remind you who you really are and what is important.
Your Angels ask you to add regular doses of meditation, exercise, and play to your days. They know that balancing your life between work, spirituality, exercise, and relationships helps you to grow and feel joy. If you feel overwhelmed by your responsibilities, don’t hesitate to ask God and your Angels to lift your burden.
So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. (1 Corinthians 10:31)
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. (Colossians 3:23-24)
