Ever so often I get into slow motion. I walk slow. I talk slow. I work slow. I drive slow. I eat slow. And there are days I even manage to slow my mind.
Many people get angry with me when I am in that mode. Impatient looks, angry behaviour from friends, loved ones, as well as from strangers.
It took quite some time to figure out the trick.
I tried it with my mind. To control myself into being slow. Usually I would realise some hours later, catching myself doing 5 things at the same time as fast as possible, that my attempt to be slow must have escaped my controlling mind just some few seconds after taking the thought.
It was only when I tried my body, that finally it made click.
I call the exercise ‘slow touch’. It doesn’t require much. A blanket, a warm room, yourself, and if you like a person of trust. Sit or lay down and touch your bare skin – or let it be touched. On your hand, your leg, your face and your whole body, once you are ready and it does not feel too much. Now challenge yourself or the person, to let the touch be ever so tender and slower than slow. When you cover your entire body with that touch, you will get up and you will know.
That slow is beautiful.
Have a magical week.
