and what promotes inner peace and harmony.

and peaceful.

I came off of an hour long conference call this morning and could feel the
unfriendly knot I had in my abdomen and the swirling thoughts and feelings
around it.  I took my hands and balled them into fists, placed them at the
knot in my abdomen and named every unfriendly thought I was feeling:
helpless, inadequate, guilty.  Then I took my balled up hands, unfurled them
and with arms outstretched and palms to the sky – I said: Dear God, I surrender
and come to you with wholly empty hands.  My wholly empty hands that no
longer have to do another thing but release this and rest there.

So powerful this was for me that I nearly became a puddle of myself on the floor.
Deeply relaxed and relieved.  I am in my own corner and I’ve got the Universe

relief that is.
