Heavenly Play

This week but the vibration coming through as I typed the angels' message was delightful, playful, and very uplifting. They have taught me over and over again the value of play. If I take time off to refill my spirit I get SO much accomplished. People always ask me where I get my energy. I work hard, but I also play hard.

Last weekend I went tubing on the salt river with some friends. You sit in these wonderful inner tubes, tie them all together, and float down the river without a care in the world. Other than avoiding being thrown into the banks, there is little you can control and what a wonderful feeling it is to surrender so completely to the beauty of nature. We saw blue herons, red winged blackbirds, and wild horses. We felt the sun on our faces, and the cool water on our backs. And Monday I had so much energy I cleaned house, got my emails caught up, organized my finances AND finished my final revision of a book that I wrote over 11 years ago! When I'm happy, I can share it. When I'm exhausted I'm not much good to anyone.

So try to get a little (or better yet, a lot) of playtime in your life. Think of it as a tune up for your spirit! Far from being selfish, it gives you so much more to give.

Have a joyful week... and try to goof off just a little bit more!
