Everyday I choose to create a day that feeds me…how?
First, I connect to myself through meditation feeling my sitting bones rooted at all times for at least 16 minutes, widening the back of my lower back, the back of my lungs, up towards the back of my heart, to the back of my neck and all the way to the back of my whole face until it softens completely and it’s ready to greet me back. A key aspect during this sacred and majestic practice is to work with crystals- these beauties held magic so I hold them back with my heart and my soul. ♥
Then, I do some breathing techniques for at least 7 minutes to balance the energy flow in my body and in my heart. Here is where I note most of the patterns that are blocking me, the bad habits, any lack of connection with myself and the world… but I also find the deep silence behind the sound of my own breathing that helps me set the intention for the day and settle into the sweetness of my soul.
Next, I ask myself what do I need to do to be the artist of my day and I recently started writing down each morning about how I want to see me daily e.g. “Today I honour and love myself, I send love into the hours that lie before me and I saturate my day with joy, sweetness and collaboration within and from the people around me so I only get to see overflowing love and presence in every context. I’m ready to pay attention. I accept what I can’t change on this day and where I am right now. I’m free and alive.” ♥
These intentions help me implement creative simple actions and set the tone of my heart…
Then, I choose a message from a guide book or a deck of healing cards, I set my own prayer and do at least a 16 minute asana practice to warm up my hips, my torso, and my steadiness into the world.
Finally, I weak up my son and I become the artist in my home, in everything I do, in everything I share at work and in my daily interactions, taking my day as slowly and as conscious as possible knowing that everything I do has the potential to be sacred and artfully accomplished in my life.
…And how do you feed your day?
