Often, we are on auto-pilot, going from one place to the next and getting our to-do list accomplished. We are so busy in our mind that we forget to take the time to pause and listen, truly listen with mindful ears to the world outside.
Listening with mindful ears has a profound effect on our mind, body and soul. As I listened to the beautiful and majestic sounds of birds and wind chimes, my breathing began to deepen, my body softened, the voice inside my head quieted and my soul awakened to the awesomeness that indeed, I am part of the One! Being part of the One, I am reminded that I am never truly alone! Being part of the One, I am grateful to be alive, and therefore, have the opportunity to listen with mindful ears!
The next time we feel overwhelmed for whatever reason, Irene reminds us to go outside, listen with mindful ears to the sounds of nature, whether it be birds singing their unique songs, the rattling of leaves as the wind gently blows or the nice soothing sound of water as it flows gently over rocks. Our body, mind and soul will surely thank us for it! Thank you, Irene for creating such a relaxing meditation and reminding us to always listen with mindful ears!
