Practice self care.
That seems simple enough - right? Almost too simple.
But I can't think of a better way to start my day. Or, a better way to get it back on track if the train of my life has derailed.
In fact, just last night I was talking to a small group about something similar. I told them how I start my day. How I take two hours for a morning practice.
I know. That sounds daunting.
But I didn't start there. I started with ten minutes. Then twenty, and after I retired I added more time as I found myself more comfortable with it all.
This time includes breathing, affirmations, mantras, asking guidance from a litany of saints and beloveds on the other side, tapping, spiritual reading, offering blessings, and doing Lovingkindness, and not in that order. Some days I spend more time with fewer things. I let my inner guidance select the morning rituals.
But other days, I linger in silence, with eyes closed, and a hot cup of coffee in my hands. Yes, coffee.
I used to drink it afterward, but it's been part of my morning routine for a long time. now. Why? It makes me happy.
When I am traveling, I try to keep to this ritual as best as I can. Sometimes it is hard. So I do what I can, and don't worry about the rest. I don't judge any of it. Or, at least I try not to.
Because it is only over time that one notices the fruits of the practice - not in one individual session. Over time we change. And maybe, just maybe - those around us change as well..
So if this is all you have time for right now in your life - that's okay.
Because you are practicing self care.
And you are embracing Divine Love, and perhaps a steaming cup of tea or coffee.
All shall be well with your soul.
