What I love about Christmas is the stillness.
I love the feeling that we have stopped for a day to spend time with ourselves and with those we love.
Of course, there is often a frantic rush to do things before and after, and for many even during Christmas day, but it feels like there is a possibility for everyone to feel stillness on this day.
What if we could feel stillness every day?
What if this was a natural way to feel the essence of who we are?
What if we could allow ourselves to feel this way, every day?
I have found that if I start the day in stillness, before I go into motion, my day flows much more harmoniously. When I wake, I lie in bed and feel how I am. I make sure I am fully present in my body before I get up and move. This way, my movements are much more gentle and loving and confirm the living stillness that I am.
If I lose it, I stop and return to this feeling of stillness as soon as I realise I am struggling. I focus on breathing gently until I can feel my stillness again. If I can’t feel still, I go for a gentle walk until I can.
If I live this way, every day can feel like Christmas.
