It has been a 7 days since I put up a post here, especially haven’t been keeping up my updates for my meditation progress but I will do that in another post.
Meanwhile, I just wanted to update and post where it is I am at, at the moment.
Apart from the energy changes..well, that is a massive part of it, there have been changes going on in my life and I am glad that meditation has been helping me to stay focused and listening to my heart more than if I didn’t.
So the last 7 days, I have felt like I just needed the time to go within, listen and just be with me(when I can between kids and home life). Through that I have found avenues to help me bring out what has been revealed to me in the gap. I have, at this point in time, found that space that I see my potential and see what I am really here for and I am feeling like I am ready to put all this into action soon.
Before all that can happen…at the moment, Melodie Beattie’s words in Choices & Language of Letting Go are inspiring me and helping me to move on from where I have arrived and hopefully take it all with me to the next stage. I love her words and how she writes. For me, it’s so raw because she didn’t start all these writings to look for fame, only to share what has helped her throughout traumatic times in her life. I admire that and respect it immensely, therefore at the moment, she is my coach Language of Letting Go is a daily meditation book, where you are encouraged to write your thoughts in a journal after reading the words to meditate over. I started this journal only today, as these two books only arrived in the mail a couple of days ago. I hope to share more of my reflections from these here also as time allows.
One of her books that has helped me so much since the beginning of this year – which incidentally I found as a gift for a cousin in Mauritius, but then ended up buying a copy for myself is Make Miracles Forty Days – the concept in this book is amazing. I highly highly recommend buying it and following the exercise for 40 days. Basically, it is writing in a gratitude journal daily but not writing only what is amazing and wonderful, but writing everything and anything that comes to mind, after the words of: ” Today I am grateful that.” I have not looked back ever since I started that exercise – actually have not completed the book to the end but as the book states, once you begin to have this as part of your life – it becomes what helps you get through your day, everyday. It suggests that you write 10 things in your journal as soon as you wake up. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always work for me, so I do it as soon as I put my daughter to bed. My goal everyday is to write one full A4 page of things that I am grateful for. The key is to not over think it and simply write what comes to mind. It’s very much unlike other Gratitude journals I have ever had. It helps you to face all aspects of yourself and your life, not just looking at the good but balancing the good and the bad – seeing that there is a gift in every situation! I just love it and I am so glad that I “stumbled” across it
So I think I have ended up writing more than I anticipated, but I am feeling good about this now as I wanted to write about these books that are helping me for a while now.
Thanks for reading and I hope that your journey is as full of wonderful self discoveries NOW.
