Once again, as the end of the year approaches, we wonder where all the time went this year! We wonder how did it get to be November already! Our experiences of time indeed are changing. It is a way to “control time” of the masses. Really? Yes!
You are not alone feeling this way. Aside from the obvious manipulation there is so much more to do with your available time! How do you use your time? So many choices, so little time!
Recreational time is super important because it recharges your “batteries,” and helps you bring more creativity, light and joy into your life. Some clients in the Akashic Records are told – their job is to recreate – to have fun, and help others to do the same! Certainly, this part of life is essential, just like sleep. For workaholics like me, it’s even more important.
What about how we use time when no one is looking? Do we goof off? Yes, sometimes, but can you remind yourself of your promises to your family, friends, co-workers about project deadlines and opportunities to share. As much as you may wish for more “free time,” you may have missed an opportunity if you allow time to always loom strongly in your awareness.
Time isn’t stagnant like we’ve come to believe, but fluid, like a river. It can flow fast or slow, it can push you and pull you along. However, I have found that it is possible to manipulate time, to work with time, bend it, stretch it, to accomplish what I’ve set out to do by “not resisting,” and instead, insisting that I do have control over my time, and I CAN manipulate time – for my benefit. After all, we are co-creators of this universe. Someone or something may control the “rules” but once we know how to operate within them, then we are free to manipulate, change, accept and reject the reality we’ve co-created. Remember, you DO have the power!
More than ever, I’ve learned that some individuals have a bigger connection to time than others. Some individuals let time control them, others control time. Which are you? Do you want to change roles and control time instead of having it control you?
Some basic things that I like to recommend to help you move into a zone of “controlling time” are, letting go of wearing a watch, looking at the clock on your phone, and worrying about “not having enough time.” Another way we can adversely manipulate time is through our fear and worry. Fear is about the future, worry is about the past. This is important to understand because both are perversions of “time” and are based on our ability to remember or to project and have nothing to do with being in the present moment.
How would you know you are doing this? When you tell your sad story more than three times, you are giving more weight to the experience of the past time, instead of participating in the now time. How do you spend your present? It’s really all we have anyway. Yes we have our memories, but even those fade with the passage of time!
We keep trying to find our new normal, and get out of the phase we’ve been in for the past 2 years. Having more time due to doing practically everything from home has given you a fresh look at what you care about, and how you manage your time. Make sure you grow and benefit from this knowledge, as you step into your new present.
