Let me tell you about my daily practise – I hope by sharing my practise you will begin to get some ideas for your own practise.
Because I am a runner I love to use my training as an example of daily practise. When I am going to train for a new running event I design my training programme but then I put this programme into action by daily practises – this might include some core strength training, cross training, Pilates, speed work and a few road runs each week. It is the same for our daily practise when designing a blueprint to create a new life. There is no point in creating a vision for your life and then sitting back in the hope it will happen – you need to do the work. The work is this daily practise I am talking about to build a good foundation.
My daily practise involves the following ritual in the morning;
- 20 minute meditation – listening to my breath
- Watching a 5 minute digital vision board for my new life
- Feeling the feeling of my new life when watching my digital vision board
- Expressing gratitude for the different blessings in my life – this can be something as simple as a good nights sleep
I like to keep my daily practise simple and manageable so that it feels integrated into my day.
In the evening I stop and meditate for 10 minutes and I look at my digital vision board again. Through the day I do a quick check in on how I am doing in living in alignment with the new vision for my life. Before I go to sleep I list all the things I am grateful for that day – this could be meeting up with a friend for a coffee.
I also make a point of celebrating every little step/achievement. The more I am engaged in this daily practise the more automatic it becomes and the easier it gets.
