Day 16 Of My Meditation Journey 🙏

Day 16 of this 21-Day Meditation Experience touches on your creative space….

Day 16 – How to Make Your Environment Creative

“Accept what is in front of you, without wanting the situation to be other than it is. Nature provides everything, without requiring thanks and provides for all.” – Lao Tzu

To make a creative space we need to encourage appreciation, openness, and acceptance. If we are too rigid, closeminded, and judgmental, then the flow of creativity is restricted and blocked. Today’s meditation teaches us to listen to and respect everyone’s contributions. When we can show gratitude and appreciation for all the gifts that are offered in the present moment, we will have an environment where creative solutions always flow.

TODAYS CENTERING THOUGHT


Today’s quote from Lao Tzu is what spoke to me today……….And I am Appreciative and feel Gratitude for all gifts………

but I found myself disagreeing with something Oprah said  “When people feel stuck they often withdraw…they pull back in their own closed off space.” MayBe that’s true for some, or even most people….but I found myself shaking my head NO………….when I CHOOSE to withdraw, it’s for my own well being, not stuckness. When the feeling of withdrawal hits me…it’s telling me it’s time to retreat, reinvigorate and restore…renew and replenish……….and I happen to like and appreciate my Own ‘Closed Off Space’…..(guess that’s the loner in me!) ……though I didn’t fully agree, the music was soothing. NAMASTE 🙏

Day 15 Of My Meditation Journey 🙏

Day 15 has us beginning our third and final week of the 21-Day Meditation Experience. This one proved to be a mixed bag for me……

Day 15 – Bringing Your Creativity into the World

“Self-expression must pass into communication for its fulfillment.” – Pearl S. Buck

Creating a limitless life means we participate in the world with an open, joyful, and collaborative awareness. It is not a solo journey; it is a journey that intimately involves us with the people and the environment we are in. Today’s meditation shows us that when we experience life from our limitless creative source, we naturally foster creative solutions for everyone around us.

TODAYS CENTERING THOUGHT


Today’s meditation wasn’t an easy one for me in regards to (personal) relationships….. My mind went straight to my estrangement from my family, and once that was planted, it just wouldn’t leave….maybe I was approaching this from the wrong perspective,,but for whatever reason…I just didn’t ‘feel’ this one….

And as a professed loner, I prefer the company of few and nature. With that said, I make a conscious effort to be a good and kind person……to be a good listener, communicator and sharer…and not totally shut myself off from the world…I just so happen to prefer dragonflies to some people…..

My individuality expands to universality.

Day 14 Of My Meditation Journey 🙏

Here we are, Day 14…finishing up the second week of the 21-Day Meditation Experience. Today we’re touching on Intention and Finding Your Creative Path…..

Day 14 – Finding Your Creative Path

“All great acts are ruled by intention. What you mean is what you get.” – Brenna Yovanoff

Our creative path isn’t something we need to figure out intellectually; it is the spontaneous expression of our innermost desires and intention. That is the wise and creative energy already operating at the heart of our awareness. In today’s meditation, we learn that this power of intention already directs our life’s journey behind the scenes. When we expand awareness in meditation, we fully align our intentions for our individual mind with the unlimited power and creativity of the universal mind. This is how we find our creative path.

TODAYS CENTERING THOUGHT


I’m coming away being able to wrap my mind around today’s centering thought more so than Intention……….setting my intentions is one thing….making them happen, there in lies my problem…I suck at it! I’m my own worst enemy….fully aware of what I want to strive for, only to let my lack of self-worth stop me dead in my tracks of my journey…..so I will keep striving and working towards  my Intention + Awareness brings about Fulfillment equation…. The journey continues 👣👣👣👣👣

Namaste 🙏

Day 13 Of My Meditation Journey 🙏

Today, on Day 13 of the 21-Day Meditation Experience we are tapping into our own Self-Worth and You-niqueness.

Day 13 – The Joy of Finding Self-Worth

“We cannot think of being acceptable to others until we have first proven acceptable to ourselves.” – Malcolm X

Our true self is at one with the entire cosmos. Therefore our worth is always infinite – it is only a matter of recognizing it as our essential nature. This self-knowledge has nothing to do with our ego or personality; it is about our true being and the unique and vital role that only we can contribute to the cosmos.

Today’s meditation shows us that spiritual self-worth is natural, joyful, and self affirming.

TODAYS CENTERING THOUGHT


I accept and embrace my uniqueness ……and my self-worth. I participate  in my existence…….I liberate myself from my fear,  and the limitations I set for myself….By breaking free from my own self imposed stuckness and limitations there’s only one thing left to do…..Fly…..The Sky’s The Limit!!!!! Pretty cool! NAMASTE 🙏

SANSKRIT MANTRA
Siddho Hum

I am perfect and complete.

(I changed up this mantra…from I am perfect and complete to I AM PERFECTLY IMPERFECT AND COMPLETE). Perfection is unattainable and to me over-rated. I’d much rather be imperfect, complete and happy then to strive for a perfection that doesn’t exist. I may be reading into this the wrong way..but, it’s my practice and I’m sticking to it!!! 


Day 12 Of My Meditation Journey🙏

Day 12 of the 21-Day Meditation Experience was a good one…Welcoming Change!!!

Day 12 – Welcoming Change Is Natural

“Being fully present is being awake to the movement and creation of life, being alive to the process of life itself.” – Pema Chodron

Even if we feel our lives are stuck in a rut, the truth is that life is still constantly changing. This element of change is what makes life interesting, creative, and new. We resist change because we mistakenly look for security in the past. Today’s meditation is about letting go of this resistance to the flow of life and finding wisdom and security in living in the ever-present now, which is our essential nature.

TODAYS CENTERING THOUGHT


That word…CHANGE. 6 simple letters that have the capacity to scare the hell out of us! I’d like to think, for the most part, that I do embrace the changes that occur in my life. I strive to live my life believing that everything that happens, happens for my greater good…even if it doesn’t seem that way at the moment…….am I always successful? Of course not…but I don’t fear change as I once did….fearing it, isn’t going to stop it from happening……

When Soul Strolling on the beach..changes are all around me…the landscape of the beach is never the same…nor is the sky, as in the photo above. The morning sun was beating down on my for most of my stroll…while heading back, this cloud shrouded the sun..changing the dynamic of what I saw and what I felt…but in a good way………

Changes are a ‘coming. Of that there is no doubt…..while I’m waiting for those changes, I’m living in the moment. Namaste🙏
