Light Filled Days
Wow! It’s officially summer. The days are exquisitely long and the laughter and energy of our girls fills the house.
Continuing with my theme of “Hour of Power”– this is time designated to sit with myself, to connect, commune and create.
It is a time that honors tending to myself as one of my greatest resources. It is a time of Intentional learning, loving and living, but at this time of year my practice can be challenged a bit.
Why? Because we all get up earlier, thanks to the amazing natural light pouring through our windows and the girls love to connect in the mornings. Which means for me to have some intentional time, space and place uninterrupted, sometimes it’s at 5am.
As referenced in my previous blog my “Hour of Power” begins with an emptying out. Taking time to clear my mind of thoughts not serving, rinsing my heart and connecting to my intention for the day.
Once I’m emptied of concern, anxiety or heaviness and connected to where I would like to focus my attention, my next step is to explore what inspires me. Starting with my breath, letting my respiration be my inspiration.
Every day is different and while some days may look the same, they all start from a place of listening to myself and allowing that to direct how I will fill my mind and heart. Here are some things I use to inspire me:
- MY WORD OF THE YEAR
- INSPIRATIONAL READING
- WALK IN NATURE
- PULLING AN INSPIRATIONAL QUOTE OR CARD FOR THE DAY
Use one of these or something that you know fills you with inspiration and bold love.
I invite you to join me in this practice.
It can be for just a few minutes or it can be as long as you wish. You can design your own practice, one that best suits you.
Let me know what your practice is, how it is serving you by sharing your experience below.
