Dear reader, this post is from the archives of AskGCW.
Can you allow yourself an hour or two of contentment each day? If that seems like a tall order, how about 15 minutes?
A few minutes, an hour or two of simply feeling at peace with your life, letting go of wanting something you don’t have, letting go of striving for the next goal, letting go of pushing ahead, letting go of forcing things to happen, will bring a refreshing new serenity to your life.
The energy frequency of contentment ripples through the web of life bringing more peace to all living beings on this earth.
Contentment is living in the moment. It is bringing your awareness to the here and now and knowing that life is good, that you have everything you need for this hour, that in this moment and the next and next, all is well.
For this hour of contentment, there is nowhere you have to go, no one you have to meet, nothing you have to do unless it contributes to your happiness.
When you know contentment, your body
mind and spirit feel calm, relaxed, and satisfied. Can you give
yourself this precious gift?
We (nature and tree spirits) are the observers. We observe by sensing your energy without judgment. We feel when you are anxious, when you are sad or grieving. We feel your joy, your buoyancy, and delight. We also feel your fear.

When many of you feel and tap into a widespread fear vibration, it chokes off your connection to the earth energy and heavenly light energy that sustains life. It affects all living things around you; it hurts you.
Collective fear damages the web of all things. It creates an ugly rift in the beautiful patterns that are meant to be. It can hollow you out.
Get to know your personal fear. Does it come from outside or inside of you? Where do you feel it in your body? What sensations are created in your body?
Have others planted this fear in you for their own agenda? Does it resonate with your existing worries and those of your family? Do your thoughts and beliefs support this fear? Are they true? Examine them!
Slowly begin to shift to more loving peaceful thoughts and beliefs, more supportive of the harmonious life you wish to live. Find the tiniest threads each day of gratitude, of satisfaction, of contentment and follow them back to the calm at your center.
As you shift from fear to peace you reweave the web of all things. Those around you will feel the shift to a more peaceful vibration as well.
