Folding laundry is my least favorite domestic chore. I usually call a friend while I fold and put everything away or listen to a podcast — anything to distract me from the task at hand.
Today I took a different approach. I decided to be present for the experience. As I lifted each item of laundry out of the basket, I felt the texture and the heat of each piece. I was aware of how jeans hold heat more intensely than a sock. I noticed how washcloths are rough, and napkins are smooth. And the smell of fresh laundry is a delight.
Instead of being a “chore” it was a joy-filled experience. Now, to take that presence into other areas of my life.

Today’s message from my Spirit Guide Mother:
Today is a good day to get quiet and go within. Trust in the safety of your soul’s embrace. When you breathe and center your energies you help balance the chaos that is permeating the air.
You may feel guided to eat lighter and rest more. Follow the wisdom of your body as it will speak to you in subtle ways and then more loudly if you do not listen. When you take care of yourself it anchors the energy of peace on the planet. Image your world if everyone listened to their body and practiced self-love. Peace would prevail.
You are taught to do, do do and go, go, go. Your modern technology has helped you forget the rhythms of the earth, the moon and stars. Look to the moon with its waxing and waning. It will show you the way of dark and light. The dark moon is the time to go within, gather your resources and plant your seeds. The full moon beckons you to shine your light for the world to see and reap the harvest of your planted dreams.
Only you can bring peace to the world. Begin by closing your eyes . . . now take a deep breath in. . . now let it go. . . Ahhhhhh. Notice how quickly you can release the tensions of the world simply by letting that deep breath go. . .
