Less Mind-Clutter

I was in a "Martha" frame of mind.  I felt overwhelmed with all my to-dos: housecleaning, errands, baking, and holiday "shoulds".   

And I was failing the biggest "should" of all: being of cheerful mind.

My thoughts were running roughshod. Negativity, an unwanted squatter, was taking up residence in my head.  Anne Lamott once described her mind as a bad neighborhood, unsafe to go alone.  My mind was feeling like a dark alley.   I was singing a pitiful tune. My mind energy was low.

"Open the window of your mind. 
Allow the fresh air, new lights, 
And new truths to enter."

To find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.
― Nikola Tesla

I went in search of fresh air of truths . . ..

We have control over energy, frequency, and vibration. 
Through meditation, mindfulness, 
and thought/affirmation exercises, 
we can alter our personal energy.

Rivers of good will run through us.  
We only need to remove the negative clutter 
To reach a reservoir of life force.

My mind took a drink of fresh life force, and it quenched my parched soul.

I have a place where I can nest,
No need to be in Sunday's best. 
No matter age or what may be,
I'm His child . . . eternally.

    1. You too? The holidays can be overwhelming. I love the traditions and all the gatherings, but I also like quiet solitude of ‘silent nights’.
