If you wish to know which practices are most restorative to you, they are the ones that give you relaxed but focused attention. These are the activities that allow you to be fully engaged and come with the experience of time distortion (feeling like no time has passed only to discover that it has been much longer than you realized).
The reason for this is that activity has shifted you into a space of connection and alignment with higher vibrational energies. These energies are restorative, so restorative in fact that the body stops aging while in those energies, and also has an opportunity to recover and recharge.
Being awake yet relaxed is also essential for some energetic adjustments to occur. (This is the reason many of you are being woken in the middle of the night. Creating the space for energetic adjustment to occur during the day may very well improve your sleep!) It is also the easiest way for most of you to embrace surrender and flow.
So as you continue this year with a focus on prioritizing where you would like to place your attention and create from, we highly advise that you make more time for the practices that take you beyond time, for that is the space that will set you up to thrive in all areas of your life. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
