Have you ever experienced days when you were in the flow and you felt as if wisdom was flowing in and out so effortlessly? A time when you actually feel as though everything is possible and you are indeed unstoppable? Today was one of those days for me. I started my day in prayer and meditation like I always do, but this morning, I consciously chose to stay inspired and in the creative mode, in bed.
Do you ever feel like your work environment gets stale and you need to find another inspired and quiet place? Well, for me, aside from our local library or my formal dining room and living room downstairs, or the private club I am a member of, sometimes just staying in bed with the intention of really focusing on that inspired action mode, gets the job done!
I know, some of my friends say “never bring work into the bedroom” and I totally agree with that. There is a time and place for everything! It’s just that in those very rare occasions when you make an exception, you tend to value the space and rarity of the opportunity that you tend to be more productive. There have been times when I was absolutely inspired to create a program or an information product that I would purposely stay at a hotel for 2-3 days to get things done that would have normally taken me months to create!
True inspired and creative moments are rare and must be valued and cherished. I make it a point to schedule them on my calendar and it’s something I look forward to. If you haven’t tried it, I suggest you do. You can do it for as little as 2 hours or the entire day if you choose! I guarantee you, this will be time well spent. Just let your family members know before hand and let them know what you’re doing. They will be inspired by your commitment to taking inspired action.
Our son Garrett knows when I’m working from my bed… my 3-wick candle is lit up and the room is very peaceful and fragrant. Most of the time, he even crawls up next to me with his book and he reads until he falls asleep for a nap. I then get to look at his sleeping face from time to time and it adds to my inspiration. It’s one of life’s most precious moments.
I would LOVE for you to try this and let me know how much you get done. It might get uncomfortable in the beginning and you might be tempted to take a nap in between. That’s okay… just know that when you wake up, you’ll feel refreshed and inspired.
Cheering You On!
