“The time you take for yourself daily is a must, not an option
By Avnesh Ratnanesan


These last ten days I have been on a speedy two part holiday which firstly took me back to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia where I celebrated the birthdays of both my mother and father, who have their birthday’s one day apart. The second part involved a trip to Darwin in Australia’s Northern Territory, where I spent several days out in the natural wilderness of Kakadu, a World Heritage Site with wonderous animal and plant life.

The actual decision to take a long holiday was rather spur of the moment, I simply felt drawn to go away for a good while and to spend it with people and locations largely unrelated to my work.

My intuition, i.e. the sixth sense which arises from our Brow (Third Eye) Chakra knew that it was exactly what I needed and was clearly indicating to me that it was time to go away. I listened to my body, or if you like my ‘higher self’ or subconscious mind which was clearly instructing me in no uncertain terms. When I initially resisted the urge to go away and stay with work, I kept getting very uneasy sensations, so I gave in to my inner voice. And that was the right decision.

The change of Environmental energy (one of the 7 areas of the Energesse Wellness Wheel) gave me the time I needed to reflect on many important things, particularly what I really want in my life and whether what I was working on was getting me there. All too often we get stuck in the grind of doing what we think we want, and then several years later look back and say “Well, I’ve done it now….and I’m still not happy…… so what was my life all about?”

The fact is your body and its subtle energy system already know what you want. It is always speaking to you, it’s just that most people don’t listen to it – they have lost the ability to connect with themselves. A change of environment from the usual routine of daily life, allows for some major listening to happen, and some real breakthroughs to emerge about what you really want. It is also the most efficient and fastest way to get there – saving you years of time. Reconnecting with your inner self can actually help you be more productive for the rest of your life.

Pulitzer prize–winning writer John Updike, author of 51 books, attributes his astonishing productivity to a schedule that honors empty time. “Ideally,” he explains, “much of my day should be, in a strict sense, idle, for it is often in idle moments that real inspiration comes.” It allows you the time you need to reassess your life of maybe even acknowledge situations or people that are affecting you in ways that you are not initially aware of. So whether it is an hour writing in your journal or a backpacking trip to South America, simply taking the time to acknowledge the desires of your soul can create an abundance of opportunities in your life and maybe even lead you down a path you least expected!
