Rituals or Routine?

Who out there has rituals they perform on a daily basis?  I for one, love my morning rituals.  I love them so much I get up between three and four o’clock in the morning to be sure I am able to get them all in.  These rituals have changed my life.  I seriously went from a miserable, person to a blissful person in a very short amount of time.

I am able to carry out these rituals with ease because they are moving me closer to my purpose.  I can feel it each and every day.  I get up, I learn more, read more, write more and I feel fabulous for it.

So, each morning I get up and after feeding the cats and making the coffee, I dance.  I turn on some dance music and just go to town.  This morning I danced while watching Ellen with the music playing lightly in the back ground.  I have to say it was pretty awesome.  Ellen is a great person.  When I am finished watching her show I feel so uplifted, so I thought I would do it first thing in the morning and see how it uplifts my day.  I am giving this a definite thumbs up!

Then I open my journal and begin writing.  Whatever comes to mind, even if it is silly and nonsensical, I write it anyway because once the pen is primed I get my best information.  I use my journal to ask for guidance.  I use my journal to plan my meals or what I have to do in any given day.  I write outside of the lines and I scribble in it.  It is me and I love it.  I heard someone say one time that they wrote their self joyful.  That statement resonates with me because I feel as though I have written myself joyful as well.

The next thing I do is meditate for twenty minutes.  I usually just turn on YouTube to a meditation video, turn down the lights and meditate.  My mantra of choice is So Hum.  I like it because it means I am, which are two of my favorite words.  Did you know that whatever follows I am, will be what creates your life?  Therefore, we all want to be careful how you use those two powerful words.

Finally, I contemplate my day for a few seconds and then come up with an affirmation or two that brings it all together.  So, lets see, what are a couple of good affirmations for this fine Tuesday morning?

  • I am open and receptive to the messages from my teacher guides today
  • I am at peace and ready to learn
  • I am a perpetual student.  I am ready to take my spiritual growth to the next level
  • I am prosperous.  My income increases constantly

So there you have it, I have four today.  As they come I write them down.  I know they are messages from my intuition so I do not leave any out.  They are all equally important.

Well, my friends I am off to get on with my day.  May you all find peace and contentment as well as hope and excitement.

Have a blessed day

What’s My Vibrational Problem?

Published April 13, 2015 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

I got up this morning feeling all blah and icky.  This is totally unlike me.  I love getting up in the morning.  It doesn’t matter if it’s Monday or Friday.  I love all of the days of the week.  I love going to work, I love coming home and I love everything in between.  I know what you must be thinking.  “oh my gosh, puke, this girl can’t be that happy.”  But the truth is, I am.

So when I wake up feeling anything other than the happiness I normally feel, I immediately take to my journal to write out all the thoughts, and emotions that come up when I inquire; What do I need to know right now?  Why am I feeling vibrationally off this morning?  And what came through the pen were a few different things.

First, I wrote how my secretary, my partner, is on vacation and I will have to be alone and do all the work this week.  Then I wrote that I am just coming off of a weekend where I ate more than I should have.  And finally I wrote how I am two days from starting my period.  Bingo!!  That’s the one.

I knew right away that the PMS was the culprit.  I know how I get just before my period.  I can be grumpy, crave foods I shouldn’t be eating, and have zero energy.  Now that I am aware of the elephant in the room, so to speak, I can take measures to be sure that I stay stress free.  How do I do this?  It’s simple.  I always come back to my breath.

I will be doing many one-minute meditations for the next couple of days.  I read somewhere that it is impossible to become stressed if you a responsible breather.  By that I mean make sure you are getting several deep breaths throughout the day.  The body needs the oxygen and your stress levels will go way down, which incidentally is why we all have belly fat.

That been said I will end this blog post with a few intentions to start my day.  I like to set my intentions and desires for each day as well as those for my future pursuits.  It’s a great practice to get into, since it is from our intentions and desires that creation is born.  So here it goes!

  • I intend on walking to and from work today.  I am going to take the thirty minutes it takes to get there and back to become grounded and centered.  I am going to do a walking meditation.
  • I intend on working at a relaxing pace all the while having plenty of time to complete every task.
  • Finally I intend on doing all of this by being present.  I will be one with the present moment so that I will be open and receptive to the guidance from my spiritual advisers.

What are your intentions and desires for today?

Well, I’m working from home today due to the big storm.  I have been up since five this morning and it has been non-stop sleeting for the past two hours.  I am sitting here wondering how I am supposed to get my boys to work today.  It’s pretty scary.  I know I ma not planning on going out.  Not even to go see my mother.  I just can’t do it.  I am going to finish up my reconciling and then move on to cleaning my house and constructing my “Operation Size 12” vision board.  It is going to be a nice quiet, warm day in the house.

Unfortunately it looks like I am not going to get my mom the ingredients for her world-famous stuffing.  I wished to have her make it for me this year because it has been so many years since I have had it, and I thought it would be the perfect touch to my Christmas dinner.  Oh well if I can’t get it to her I will have her make it with me using FaceTime on my new iPhone that my bosses got me.  Yes, I know I am spoiled, and I love it.  It is the best piece of electronics I have ever owned.  It’s my new favorite toy.

Anyway, I am just about finished with my work.  Both of my kitties are sleeping so peacefully.  One on each rocking chair. They are the epitome of what is right with the world.  I love to watch them sleep.  They are what love it.  🙂
