The Power of Distraction

As I am sure you have noticed, we (as a society and individually) tend to spend far too much time focusing on what is not all that important in life. We repeatedly fight the same inner battles day after day, yet fail to deepen an awareness of ourselves and heal. The material word distracts us from taking the time to enjoy life on a more meaningful level, and we fail to spend adequate time developing a spiritual connection. The material world we live in tells us what matters most, and we believe it to some degree.

We are distracted by many powerful forces each and every day. We rush around and try to do as much as we can thinking that is the best way to move through the day. We see power in money and knowledge, in controlling and acquiring.

Tragic world events grab our attention. Our dysfunctional relatives and friends suck us into their drama. A toxic work environment depletes our energy and make us miserable. We are regularly bombarded with negativity and told what are priorities should be.

Ironically, we insist that we are exhausting all our avenues to create a better life for ourselves, yet this may not really be the case. We are distracted by our surroundings and may do very little to improve our life. We unknowingly become victims instead of empowered individuals.   

This week get tuned into a higher frequency. Quit going in so many directions. Get centeredclear your head of unnecessary debris. Spend time reflecting on life and taking time to just sit back and feel grateful for the miracles that surround you each and every day. Use the power of distraction to distract you away from the material world, negativity and what isn’t all that important in life.
