It’s been two weeks since I started this journey and so many blessings have been coming my way. Committing to spend time daily in the energy of love, abundance, and peace has created space for some wonderful shifts. Amazing people, deeper meditations, money, closeness with my kids, and so much more. I’m feeling good about taking care of myself body, mind, and soul and my relationships are benefiting from it.
Committing to live in the energy of love, abundance, and peace does NOT mean I’m not going to feel grief, sadness, fear, anger, etc. When I have these feelings, I FEEL them fully, learn from them, and when I’ve done my work with them, I release them. Feelings show up for a reason, but when we live in the ENERGY of fear, lack, and separation, we don’t find the beautiful gifts, because our need to live in fear, lack, and separation tells us we have to STAY in it. When we stay longer than we need to by numbing, avoiding, and suppressing our darkness comes out on others. We are in a constant cycle of things that will keep feeding that fear, lack, and separation cycle. What has happened to us in the past doesn’t have to keep up prisoner. We have to choose where we want to put our energy and wherever we choose to put it, is what will feed into our lives. Martin Luther King Jr. said it beautifully when he said,
“As you press on for justice, be sure to move with dignity and discipline, using only the weapon of love. Let no man pull you so low as to hate him. Always avoid violence. If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in your struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness, and your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos.”-Martin Luther King Jr. 1956
From A Loving Place was born from inspiring words from the amazing humans who took the responsibility of passing down a legacy of love seriously. We aren’t going to end any of the fear, lack, and separation in the world, if we are choosing to live their ourselves. I’m making the conscious choice of which energy I’m choosing to feed daily. I hope you will join me on this amazing adventure if you haven’t already.
Today, my focus is on my centering practices. One of the things I talk about in my book is centering ourselves in our daily activities. One of the challenges I face when introducing new practices to my life is time, so learning to create centering practices around what I’m already doing is such an AWESOME gift. Washing my hands and washing dishes turned into a gift instead of a chore. Laundry gives me space to move and breathe. De-cluttering acts as an emotional cleanser. Traffic is time to listen to audiobooks that keep me centered. We can choose to look at anything from a place of love, abundance, and peace or fear, lack, and separation. Today, I will spend my day in gratitude enjoying each activity that gives me an opportunity to center myself.
I feel like a kid in a candy store right now. I’m actually giddy thinking of all the ways I can center myself. When I say centering myself, I mean becoming one with a moment in time. When I focus on doing this throughout the day, my day ends up being such an adventure. I’m thinking of the process of making my smoothie, and all the amazing opportunities that offers using every one of my senses. I’m going to have fun with this one. I hope you do too!
With Love, Gratitude, and Peace,
