Make sure you are getting enough restful, quality sleep; eat fruits and veggies, nuts and grains - stay away from processed foods; move - walk, workout, garden; feed your mind - read, listen to podcasts, learn something new; have quiet time with yourself - meditate, take a walk in nature; keep good company - be around people that inspire and encourage you, no gossiping; open your heart with a daily practice of gratitude.
Open to life and smile. Happy Sunday!
Listen to a 4 minute exercise on the meaning of being fresh like a flower with Thich Nhat Hanh.
When you allow the feelings of abundance and joy to rise within you, colors will become more vibrant, textures will feel richer, aromas will be more tantalizing, flavors will have more depth. Let gratitude awaken your inner and outer worlds to the magnificence of the universe.
We've been given the opportunity to slow down, to recognize what's really important and to notice and appreciate this beautiful planet. Take full advantage of this time, don't yearn for the past or fret about the future. As Ram Dass would say "be here now".
Don't accept for yourself the limitations that others have placed upon themselves. Live boldly, live audaciously!
Are you focused on fear or hope, helplessness or power, loss or abundance? The energy you bring to life will be reflected in your choices.
Your thoughts determine how you process events and happenings. Is the rain beautiful or inconvenient? Is the barking dog annoying or is he saying hello? When you wake up do you feel fortunate to get to experience another day or are you filled with dread? As Wayne Dyer would say "change your thoughts, change your life".
This world of in between what was and what will be is the perfect time to stretch and try something new. Don't let fear of failure hold you back, be willing to be awkward and clumsy to get all the benefits of learning.
We humans like predictability, it makes us feel secure and gives us an illusion of control. And watching our world turn upside down can be unsettling and scary. This is the time to work on yourself - build your confidence, build your spiritual connection, live in the moment and believe that what ever is up ahead you will be able to handle, you will make the right decisions at the right times, and you will be okay. Who knows it may be grander than you could have ever imagined!
Often we are so focused on the ending, on what is being lost, that we forget to even look for what is beginning. What seeds are blossoming in your life?
