Yep – I confess that I’m a confirmed solitaire player. Always have been. I play when I’m looking for a quiet transition to refresh between activities, or late in the day when I’m too tired to do something more productive, or even (sigh) when I’m procrastinating about things I’ll be happy to complete.
Over the years I’ve indulged my inner solo gamer, I’ve had several spiritual epiphanies. Here are three of my top favorites that illuminate my life whenever I reconnect with them.
- Mental relaxation allows beneficial ideas to surface. For me, playing solitaire sometimes results in a breakthrough with a challenging problem or perhaps a simple reminder from my subconscious (or my Akashic Records) about something important I’ve forgotten to do. Or more commonly, it’s deliciously relaxing. I give myself permission to relax in this way.
- Lots of different options create success. Since I’ve set my game level at “solvable,” I know that if I don’t win the first time, I can replay without any penalties until I do. That encourages me to persist. Occasionally it takes a few repeats and I always know that I’ll win. When so much in my life right now is uncertain, it’s comforting to know that I’ll be 100% successful in this one area.
- Keep focused on the goal, even when it looks like it’s totally hopeless. There have been countless times I’ve been adamantly certain that a game is impossible to win. However, once I can let go of my negative thoughts and look at the game with “fresh eyes,” I relearn that great spiritual lesson: “There is always a way to win.”
This simple game reinforces how the Divine looks after me even in small ways. Playing untimed, relaxing, solvable games while open to my spiritual guidance, is a great way to remind myself that I’m always divinely guided and assisted.
From facilitating over 1000 Akashic Sessions, I truly understand the Divine always wants all of us to be happy, peaceful, and successful. Yes – that’s you too and this planet, no matter what’s going on that may look so crazy and pointless.
So, dear hearts, what games have you been playing lately that help you to relax while supporting your spiritual growth? Love to hear from you!
Till next time,
Radiance and Love –
How can you leave a comment? It’s easy! Just scroll to the very bottom of the page below my signature block. I’d love to hear your thoughts about this Akashic Inspiration! I personally reply to every comment, even if it may take me a while.
I love this Sandra! The Records always guide us to success, especially if we are willing to open our definition of success to more possibilities. What a wonderful way to communicate these important spiritual truths.
Hi Nancy: I remember years ago when you and Chanda Berlatsky said you would both use your Akashic Records when playing solitaire to help you to be in tune with what was the next best move to make. Don’t know that I’ve been that conscious about asking for Akashic help when I’ve been playing and I think when it’s right for me, it comes as inspiration. Glad you enjoyed the post.
Aloha Dear Sweet Soul Sista!
I have 2 apps on my IPhone that I play when I want to relax and have some ah moments happen. They are Happy Color and Color Fun. They are the same principle but so different! I like to start my day and end my day with them.
So continue to In Joy playing. I believe God wants us to In Joy as much JOY as we choose.
Blessings and Love,
Hi there Judie – Thanks for these recommendations of games involving color. Sounds like I’d love them too and that they’d be a nice change from solitaire. I’ll be having a look! Yes – playing in JOY is what we are all here to do.
online video pool – love it!
I understand after our conversation today about online games that you too are linking some dots together about how it can from time to time allow you the space to receive great creativity from the Divine. Makes it all worth it, doesn’t it! You get relaxation plus inspiration!
My friend brings her daughter to the barn I go to and over the summer I remembered a song from my childhood with the accompanying interactive hand gestures. It’s playful and lightens the energy to engage in, especially with a younger person. I find it also is a space to be creative from. Play and laughter are such a beautiful aspect of the Divine.
Hi Janice – What a great childhood memory to share with a youngling! I so agree that joy is one of the delightful aspects of the Divine. Keep sharing your gifts.
