Time is one of the most precious commodities we have today and yet it poses the biggest hurdle in accomplishing our dreams and maintaining a balanced and purposeful life.
I spoke to friend recently, a naturally talented writer, a doctor, wife and mum of two very young boys. She has amazing dreams and my instinct tells me she has the power and vision to accomplish them …. but she keeps putting things off.
“Priya, I know in my soul that I can do this and that I will, but for some reason my goal post changes because I really struggle to find time."
Whilst I empathise with her, I also want to see her succeed because I know she has so much to offer. So I have set her a daily absolute practice.
Imagine if you had a telephone connection with god, your higher self or any guiding force you feel aligned with.
What would you ask for? What problems would you need answers to, what guidance and comfort would you desire?
When you commit to spending time every day in silence and connecting with your inner self, you open up a golden channel where you receive the support you need and the energy and calmness to see things through.
It’s almost like a spa ritual for the mind, body and soul.
Try this simple exercise to connect within.
Start your day by sitting in a quiet place; consciously take long deep breaths for 3 minutes, building up the time each day.
Stay present in the moment, observe the way you feel with every new inhale and exhale. If your mind wanders gently bring it back and keep your focus on your breath. You will start to feel very calm and centred.
Now visualise strong fertile roots which anchor you to the centre of mother earth and a divine golden light within and around you, protecting you. Spread your hands out as if greeting the universe and imagine a peaceful universal light weaving itself with your divine light until it becomes completely united.
Feel pulsations of delicate energy re-fuelling you. Take a couple of long, deep breaths and feel yourself being filled with an abundance of love, light and courage. Breathe that feeling into every cell in your body and visualise your body glowing more. Imagine this light extending out into the world.
If you have a concern you need guidance with, bring forth that question to your mind and say, “I know I will be guided to the truth, I have the answers within me.”
Express gratitude for all that you are blessed with.
After this, you can peacefully start your day, there are additional ways you can do this or support it further. Journaling is a great tool. Personally, I find journaling an excellent way to clear the clutter from my mind. Doing this before or after your meditation is a personal choice.
I have found that when I stay connected to my true self, I feel aligned, calm and at peace. I am clear about my goals and encouraged to take steps to realise them.
Even if I am tired I have a burst of energy and although the mind can get really busy I still feel calm and centred within.
I have the clarity to reflect on any issues that I need to work on, allowing suppressed emotions to surface so that I can deal with them with a raised consciousness.
This commitment you make to be in touch with the divine will be an immensely powerful force assisting you to live an abundant life.
I encourage you all to start today, practicing this every day for 11 days for a minimum of 11 minutes a day.
I’d love to hear of any changes that you have noticed.
Are you ready to join?
Stay connected, stay blessed!
