YOUR GIFT FOR JOINING MY COMMUNITY
A Three-Part Morning Clarity Ritual
(Some of you new friends here may have gotten this when you signed up, So take this as a reminder! )
Are you, my friend, ready to feel tuned in and turned on with a simple way to start your day? Do you wake up feeling happy to wake up and be alive?
After years of working with myself, and teaching clients, I have this fantastic morning ritual for energy and clarity each day. This is a great time for committing to new Epic Self-Care habits that will make you feel connected, increase self-compassion, self-love and reward you inside and out.
Make each and every day a joy and success! This is my tried and true Three Part Morning Clarity Ritual!
These are three components for you to add to every morning:
Meditate | Percolate | Dance Break
Meditate, oh yeah, it’s time to sit down and quiet your mind. First thing in the morning is my preferred time, but anytime during your day is good. I usually get up at 5 am, and start with 5 minutes of just sitting and breathing. You can choose to listen to a guided meditation on your earbuds, or just sit quietly. You could do this while still in bed but personally, I prefer to go to my own sacred spot, which you can make so simple or deck it out with flowers and candles and cushions. Whatever feels inspiring for you.
As you start, slow down the breath. Deep inhales and exhales. Breathe in through your nostrils and fill the belly up, expanding with fresh air. This air is your life force, your energy, your chi. Exhale and hollow out the belly. Really expel all the air through your mouth. (I’ll put some breathing cleansing and immune boosting exercises down below for you too.) Sitting still and breathing, notice your mind chatter, acknowledge it, and then return to your breath. Focusing on the tip of your nose helps. Another great tip is to focus on your forehead, with your eyes closed, and see clouds wafting by, across the brows, and let them take away that chatter and bring you into a clearer, quieter place. This can be for 5 minutes, or 10, or 15, or even 30 once you build your habit. Notice how you feel after.
And remember, no judgment. It takes a while to establish this kind of practice. But you will love me when you do, and find that when you DON’T take the time for yourself like this, you may not feel in alignment with yourself that day. Just sayin’!
TIP: Insight Timer is a great phone app to help you with your meditations. You can set it up however works best for you, with bells, music, silence. Plus they have great meditations and instructions too… I use it every day! www.insighttimer.com
