A friend sent me this little blog piece called Seth's Blog today - I thought given that exams are only a week or so away, this might be pertinent for us all.

I am constantly assessing and reassessing the type of person I am, and want to be moving forward in life.  I try where possible to give my best, to work efficiently, but always strive for continual improvement.  These days, my goal is to excel whilst creating a personally sustainable life.  Sometimes this means raising the bar, other days it means relaxing expectations of myself so as not to get stressed out. 

What kind of person are you?  Do you raise the bar for yourself whenever you can?  Do you keep your bar low so as to avoid disappointment? Or do you stick with the bar height that the world expects from you?  Either way, spending some time on your own to contemplate your inner wants and needs will help to determine whether you are happy and if not, where you may need to push yourself a little, step outside your comfort zone, or whether you need to pull back a bit, relax into life and cruise for a while.

Allow your mind to rest on the breath... Breathing in and out, easily and gently, following the air as it flows down your throat and into your chest, feeling your chest rise and fall. 
Now...As you breathe in, let your mind become still and quiet.  As you inhale, breathe in white light.  As you exhale, breathe that light down through your entire body and out through your feet and into the earth.  As the light flows, it cleanses your mind, body and spirit of all tension, stress and pain. 
Now... take your attention to the gap between breaths.  Here, in the space between breaths, all is silent and still. Here is where your total creative potential lives.  Here is where you receive the guidance of your authentic self.  Let the mind rest in the space between breaths and set the intention to hear the voice of your inner self, your real self, the part of you that knows what you need and how to get it. 
Now...As you breathe in, ask your authentic guidance a question...sit and wait patiently in the gap between the breaths for the answer.  As you breathe out, let go of the question allowing it to return to the Universal source of all things.
Return your breathe to it's own natural pace and rhythm and be in the silent gap to await guidance.

Listening to our authentic voice is a fantastic way to align ourselves with not only our path and purpose in life, but our highest potential.  To follow the instruction of that voice is sometimes challenging but leads us to be the best version of ourselves, and lead our greatest life.

So... do the meditation daily, read Seth's Blog and let me know what you think.

Best wishes for your exams, and be well.
