The quieter you become, the more you‘re able to hear. - Rumi-
I’ve been feeling the pull lately to begin a daily practice. Oh, I’ve begun many times, many different daily practices. Art, The Miracle Morning, yoga, journaling, Jillian Michaels kicking my butt through YouTube, prayer, meditation…. So many starts and stops. What I long for is the longevity of doing something consistently for a long period of time to get to the point where it is harder not to do it than to do it. Where if I don’t do it, I miss it and my day is markedly different and uncomfortable to the point where I can’t not do it.
I am listening to the book Light is the New Black by Rebecca Campbell and she talks about how she used to be a dabbler. (A dabbler, a dabbler, that’s me!!!) Starting and stopping more daily practices than she can count. (sooooo me). 😫 So her new daily practice that has earned the mark of longevity is a simple 20 minute session as soon as she wakes up. (When our vibrations are naturally high after sleep) Her practice is simply: sourcing, prayer and chanting/dance or walking in nature. I can do that! I can do all of that!
Now, if you know me, you know that I get really excited about things. Like REALLY excited. I am a strong starter but not necessarily a strong follow-through-er or a strong finisher, so only time will tell if I follow through on committing to myself in this way. All I can say is that this sounds totally do-able and such a beautiful way to start the day. I’ll see you tomorrow in the AM, Lisa! 👊🏽
