Most of us associate work with stress or effort. This is so familiar that we become tense automatically at the thought of work without noticing. Consider being at ease at work. Does that even seem possible? Being in effort is most often an automatic response. Being at ease at work is a choice we can make. It means being conscious and aware of how we want to be in the moment, choosing to be at ease.
When we are in stress, resistance, tension or other energies that create effort we will notice that our life and our work mirrors this. This is not a coincidence. Being at ease is a way to turn things around, cause things to flow and for our goals to manifest more easily.
Sometimes our energy is light meaning it is moving at a high vibration, light in color, and other terms that describe ease. What does it mean to be at ease? From an intuitive perspective it means energy moving without resistance and vibrating at a high energy level, being at ease in body, mind and spirit.
Being at ease begins when we are grounded in present time. This helps the body relax. Being at ease means not thinking – just being present and aware in the moment as you observe what is going on with you and around you. Being at ease means being aware of yourself, what you are being and how you are reacting in the moment. Being at ease means being in communication with yourself.
Notice if you can be at ease. Notice where you are not at ease. Release, let go, stop resisting, be neutral – which means not reacting. Just observe. Notice yourself being at ease. If you have never truly ever been at ease you may not know yet what that is or how to get there.
Intuitive exercise: with your eyes closed imagine a gauge in front of you from 0 – 100. Without thinking have the gauge show you how close you are to being at ease – 5% 10% 50%. Are you surprised?
I was working with a client this morning and she was NOT at ease. She was stressing but was not aware of it because she is in a constant state of stress about one thing or another. So for her the goal is to stop and be at ease before she goes to work, makes a decision or interacts with her staff.
Are you able to be at ease at work? What are your thoughts about being at ease at work? Is it the idea that it is WORK so by its very nature it should be stressful? What is your programming? Meditate on the aspects of your work that allow you to be at ease and the aspects that don’t. Change your reaction. Decide to be at ease at work. Can you imagine that? If you are at ease at work how might your work be different?
The client I was working with this morning had many reasons why she was not at ease with other people and why they were the cause of her lack of ease. I smiled then she smiled. The cause is never outside of us. We have the ability to act and react in any way we choose. So what do you choose? There is no logic here. You simply get to choose. Free will. You can choose to be or not to be at ease. What do you choose? If being in stress is a habit and being at ease is not familiar then it will take focus and attention to break that routine and create a new way of being.
How might your work be different if you were at ease with it? Try being at ease then notice what changes.
Best wishes on your success, Kay
