Thought Gyroscope

Not only are the days of many of us already filled with obligations, ideas, plans, visions, jobs, and tasks to do. But there is even more that we absorb, even though it may not concern us in the first place. Injustice, war, diseases, tragedies, natural disasters can burden a lot more than we may think. Although the days may be well balanced and nothing has actually changed in daily routines, still, there can be a feeling of sudden overwhelm. The walls may appear closer than before. Simple tasks or even everyday things feel like a burden, whereas before you didn’t even think about it. Or maybe some discussions or statements throw you off track that you usually don’t even ignore.

Demarcation is the magic word. You may think you are in control, but one small drop can suffice to break the whole barrel. This drop doesn’t even have anything to do with the actual aspects that put additional strain on your shoulders and chest. So, it is not easy to find out what it was in the end. We are no machines. The more sensitive one is, the more difficult it is to distance oneself from external influences. It’s not about ignoring what’s going on in the world, but finding a way not to get caught up in it in an unhealthy way. One light thought breeze can turn into a tornado. The present moment is what it is. But when we are constantly filled with spinning thoughts, it becomes a homemade hell trip.

If you feel like your nerves are wearing thin, and you can’t handle your day for no apparent reason, it could be because the outside world has been allowed to pollute your inner world for too long. It helps to talk about your feelings. Because in doing so, you give them a name and hear other views of the situation. That’s the problem when we make everything up only with ourselves. We will only get the answers we already know that only pulls us deeper into the vortex.

Everybody deserves to be happy, regardless of the situation.
Again, the brighter I shine, the brighter the light I shine on others.

In Love and Light

The purpose of my blog is to inspire and shine a light on the beauty and power of the wonderful being inside your body. You came into this world to share what only you can give. Remember who you really are, conquer the world the way you always wanted to, and become the blessing to us all that you were meant to be.


Wow! The Andrew Bernstein quote punched me right in the gut! I was allowing myself to feel stressed today, with deadlines looming and seemingly impossibly tasks to accomplish. I choose to step back and remember the world will not stop turning if I don’t get everything done. Thank you, Erika!

I admire you for living this insight. I am still coping far too long until I am at the same point but have gotten a lot better in it. I am glad you pulled the plug before it suffocated you, dear Jan ๐Ÿ’–

There’s the inner world (our close circle and daily life, then there’s the outer world (world events and life in the community and so forth. Then there is the world inside us (mind ,heart and spirit) we live a life trying to keep all these aligned so that we can experience the best life possible..we can get thrown off unexpectedly but we can also get realigned. Feel what you feel, express what you feel and don’t let things bottle up inside. Have a great week and yes keep shining brighter and brighter ๐ŸŒž

That’s the point here. We absorb so much more than we are aware of. At one point, it is too much before we even realize it. So, only trying to cope, and suppressing feelings doesn’t make them go away, It only makes things worse. But a go thunderstorm works wonders.
