Filling up the Karma cup
When was the last time someone said something to you, that came from their heart, that was honest truthful and loving, and it was about you? If you're like most people, you probably can't remember. It doesn't mean that you don't have beautiful loving people in your life, it's just sometimes we forget to tell the people we love the most, just why they're so special to.
I recently did an exercise that was prompted by my teacher in the course I'm studying at the moment, that took a lot of pushing through resistance to initiate. She asked us to text or email 25 friends and family, and ask them 'In your eye's, what are my three biggest strengths?' I was overwhelmed with the responses my loved ones gave. I felt really special, and it helped me to recognise the things I'm best at. You see, as humans, we're really hard on ourselves. Even though I feel at peace with myself, I still find it hard to pin-point my strengths. I believe this is because the things we are best at, come easily too us. We don't have to think about doing them, because they're natural, so they almost get forgotten. Opening your eyes to an outside perspective will help you connect with what it is that makes you different to everyone else!
The part of this exercise that I didn't like, was essentially asking people for a compliment. It was a little uncomfortable! I've workshopped the idea, and I have a little project for you today. We all understand the concept of Karma, and I wan't you to use it's powers in a positive way. Tell 3 of your closest friends or family, the three things about them that you love the most.
You might write something like this
'Hi Mum, this is just a quick message to let you know how much I love you. I love how you always have time to listen, that you can see the good in everything and you give the best hugs! xxx'
You have the power to make someones day with a little love, some thoughtful words and gratitude. I promise you if you put the good out there, it will come back to you!
