One of the most restorative things you can do for yourself as a human being is to find an activity that you enjoy so much that it fully absorbs you to the point where you can engage in the activity for several hours and feel like it has only been a few minutes.
When you experience time distortion, it tells you that you have shifted energetically into a space of flow, of being fully present, of being surrendered – which is an indicator of being in higher energetic state that is connection with Source. Losing time is always a sign you have shifted into a higher dimensional energy which is, much like meditation, incredibly supportive to you in a myriad of ways.
It does not matter what you do. Paint, read, walk in nature, write, take up a hobby. It is your choice. It is not the activity itself but the energetic space it creates for you that matters. ~Archangel Gabriel
