Creating Equilibrium

Back in 2011, I woke up early one morning to the sound of mail dropping through my front door.  It was a hand-delivered letter from a bailiff.  Feelings of panic, fear, anxiety and all those stress-related feelings surged through my body.

I had just come back to the ‘real world’, after spending a year locked away at a friend’s house, learning how to meditate and doing my paintings.  With the letter still in hand, I lay down on my sofa and looked up at my painting ‘Blue Lotus’ hanging on the wall:

At the time I was also learning how to do the ‘Power Pause‘, a 3 minute exercise where you ‘switch focus’ from anything that is causing you stress (google it!).  I did the Power Pause, and after, I felt inspired to write my poem ‘Equilibrium‘ while focusing on the painting:

Intro: Nervous tension, constant worry, problems in the family, anxiety about money, bills overdue, relationship issues….

When the pressures of life get me down
And the stresses of life make me frown
I’ve got to find a way to get my peace of mind
And create equilibrium

In order for me to keep my sanity,
I must create the balance between my mind, spirit and body
Let go of all the things causing strain on my brain
So I can keep my mental and emotional stability

When the pressures of life get me down
And the stresses of life make me frown
I’ve got to find a way to get my peace of mind
And create equilibrium

So I rise early with the morning sun
To give thanks for all the Lord has done
Take time out to meditate and pray before I start my day
When I focus on all the positive things in my life
I realise I’m too blessed to be stressed
There are so many things for me to be grateful for
So by taking a few minutes to switch focus away from
I put myself in a positive vibration

In order for me to keep my Self in symmetry;
Mentally, spiritually and physically
I must find the balance between work, rest and play
And give my Self time to recuperate from the stresses of the day
By learning to take control of my negative thought patterns
And harnessing the positive energy within me
I’m able to maintain my serenity
Meditation is the key….

And so I find a way to get my peace of mind
And create equilibrium
And so I find a way to balance my life
And create equilibrium
And that’s what I’ve done!

Floating on a sea of consciousness
I realise I am a Triune being;
I am Love!
I am Peace!
I am Joy!
These are my natural states of being
My inner world is creating my outer world
My outer world is simply reflecting!

The Garden of Eden is a state of mind
The Kingdom of Heaven is WITHIN.

I let all burdens fall from my shoulders
I let anxiety drop from my mind
I let all fear slip away from my heart
I release all feelings of guilt and condemnation
I am free from all burdens;
Mental, physical and financial
I am now light

“Thank You!”
