I've tried lots of different ways to create a routine to start my day off in tip-top A1 state of mind, body, heart and soul and it has definitely been a challenge to be consistent with it. Of course as a recovering perfectionist I initially made it a liiiiilllltle bit toooooooo complicated, but bless my heart cos I've kept trying even when I've COMpletely fallen off the self-love wagon.
What I've found is that when I create too many rules about it then it's no-longer enJOYable, so getting up early when it's cold and dark.......bump-bowwwnnnn..no good for Peta. Trying to do yoga, card reading, meditation, to-do list, smoothy allllll before 7am is a big fat NO_CAN_DO. Of course I tried but then felt like a loser because it wasn't achievable for me.
So I reckon I might have cracked the code (for me at least. You've gotta work out what fits with you but by all means give this a go because it is F U N and totally do-able).
There is no doubt in my mind that MEDITATION is a non-negotiable, sitting down for 5-10 mins and doing a chakra cleanse by streaming down Source white light energy in through your crown, letting it expand in your heart chakra and travel through your body out through your root chakra deep down into Mother earth to wrap that stream of light around the red core of the earth and then drawing it back up into your chest space to merge with the Light streaming in through your crown and with each breath this light gets bigger and brighter and your body feels waves of energy ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! OMG how could you not make time to do that!!
Well I decided to make this the first thing I do in my WORK day. So I clock on at 8 am (when Mike takes the kids to school) go straight in to my space, light a candle and some incense and then meditate. Making it part of my work day has made such a difference.
Now, I can hear some of you say "yeah but that's all well and good if you work from home but what about me? I work in a hospital or an office or a classroom or a building site?" Babe, maybe you can do it your car in the car park or on the train/tram/bus - just pop in some headphones and close your eyes and breath with you palms up and your heart open? Just 5 mins will make THE world of difference, I promise!
I finish off with drawing a card and then............ D A N C E !
Dancing is so much fun, I have made it another non-negotiable part of my day because
a- it's F U N
b- it's great exercise
c- it gets me energy really buzzed and I can shake any sillies out that may still be there
d- did I mention it's F U N !
If you need some help to CLEAR your energy to make way for more fun try my 1:1 Sessions.
Check out my freestyle dance break video for a laugh and maybe your shoulders might just start to shimmy, your hips might start to shake and then just let your back-bone slip!!
Love ya, Peta
