Today’s sharing is short and sweet. However, it is packed full with pure, simple, raw potential. It’s an invitation to you. An encouraging and support to you.
I invite you today, tomorrow, the next day and the next, and… to take time to BE. Gift yourself daily with the powerful discovery that just BEing for a little while will open up vast awareness.
It all begins that simply, purely and authentically. YOU BEing with YOU. Taking a respite from the DO and grind in your daily life. Why? Because you will awaken and open aspects of yourself that you forgot were there. Childlike curiosity, dreams, desires, a quiet happy stillness, anticipation, peacefulness, calm, centering, etc… The list of benefits goes on and on.
What does this look like? Well, that is a personal choice. What will grace you with the most pleasure, discovery and fresh beginning to the day? Here is a glimpse of my morning BEingness time –
- Some days I record meditations, blog, research, explore more deeply desires and dreams.
Now, as my friends and family know I get up a wee bit early (3-4am), many view this as crazy, however this morning time is precious. It is my daily dose of inspiration, joyful dreaming, exploring and celebrating. I enter my day with such peace, love and joy. I overflow with gratitude for all that is and embark on the day with curious wonder for all that is becoming.
My invitation to you today is not for you to get up so early nor spend as much time as I do, my challenge to you is to start with 10-15 minutes per day to see how it feels. Then, if you enjoy it, you can always add more time to the power of BEing. What can you do during this time? What about-
- Sit and play with dreams in your mind or on paper (no technology)
- Take a short walk
- Sit and let thoughts bubble without judgment
- Be present, quiet, still
- Watch out the window with no need to focus
- Listen to the world wake up
- Feel yourself breathing and Being
- Sit and create a list of all that you are grateful for
- Draw, color, paint…
- The possibilities are endless….
See how it feels to NOT start your day in a stressful rush, bolting to the shower to get ready. Experience the pure grace of BEing while the rest of the world spins. Discover how simple it is to awaken your buried dreams and desires. Wake up to how powerful it is to Choose YOU for a little while each and every day.
I have been blessing myself with this BEingness time every morning since I was in college. When my children were young this time was really precious, for it made me a much more present, patient, joyful, loving mother. As a single mom juggling work, home and children, I desperately needed this time – it kept my dreams alive, centered me within myself and filled me with such luscious gratitude.
Life is full of twists and turns, ups and downs, unexpected challenges and glorious celebrations. Gifting yourself with this precious ritual will impact your life more than you can begin to imagine. It is one of the most powerful ways to honor the self, respect your life journey and imbue your days with passionate potential.
