Seize the day…

Today’s Blackboard Wisdom:

Carpe Diem

This lovely phrase (Carpe Diem is Latin for “Seize the Day”) delivers such a feeling of power and excitement to me…and potential..! What does today hold?? What miracles will occur today…..?? What miracles can I manifest today…..??

The words somehow deliver the fizz of being in the moment – in this moment NOW – which in turn creates a conscious awareness, an awakened state…and I find that when in this state, I become such a powerful co-creator of my next reality.

In this moment of NOW all of the ‘issues’ which previously controlled my energy, my power, my intention, and my action simply melt away – ceasing to exist at all.

The traffic slowing my journey…the difficult conversation with my ‘Ex’…..the ‘drama play’ of 3 kids at pre-school breakfast…..the invoices building up in the hallway….the Christmas shopping list….and the myriad of things that need ‘doing’…!! Everyone has this same excess at this time – in the headlong dash ‘to do’ and ‘to have’ .

On this new ‘clean canvas’ created simply by the consciousness raising effect of ‘Carpe Diem’ and being in the moment,  I am able to re-direct my energy, power, intention and my actions as though fuelled by a greater intent – a more conscious one….one that urges me ‘To Be’  before ‘To Do’ or ‘To Have‘.

Somehow, now, my energy, my power, my intention and my actions are injected with a greater creativity – a ‘Va Va Voom’ – a laser effectiveness, a crispness which all makes my contribution to the whole so much more meaningful……;-).

Try it.  Inject this moment with being-ness. See what YOU contribute so uniquely  to the whole. Carpé Diem….!!

One thought on “Seize the day…

  1. It’s so inspiring to come along to the centre and read what has been written there that day. This is a great phrase to use. It always reminds me of Robin Williams in Dead Poets Society. Loving the Va Va Voom effect!
