What do you want?Jan 04, 2022
Creating a daily check in with yourself means getting crystal clear on your desires, and what you want. It’s important to know what you want so that when you get there, you can recognize it!
Up-level your daily meditation with a practice called habit stacking. This is where you take an existing habit and add a new habit to the end of it. For example, if you forget to take your supplements regularly, keep them next to your toothbrush. When you brush your teeth, you’ll see your supplements and be reminded to take them.
Similarly you can do this with your meditation practice. It starts with placing your journal or notebook next to your meditation cushion before you go to bed tonight - if you’re home, go ahead and do this now.
You know the power of meditation.
It’s the safe and intimate space where you calm and focus your mind, process your emotions and experiences, clear your subconscious mind, and engage your neutral (also known as meditative) mind.
This exercise will enhance your practice and connection with yourself.
When you complete your meditation, open your journal and answer the following prompts:
- What limiting belief(s) do I release today?
- What are 3 wins from yesterday?
- What are 3 wins for today?
Practice this daily for the rest of the month. Make a note in your calendar for January 31, 2022 to review what you wrote. Include these prompts in your calendar reminder:
- In reviewing my journal entries, I notice the following patterns in my beliefs and successes…
- When I identify and release my limiting beliefs, I feel/think/experience…
- When I celebrate my daily wins, I feel/think/experience…
Meditation is a powerful tool where you forge an intimate connection with yourself.
It clears the clutter so you can listen deeply to your inner wisdom, your needs and desires.
As you journal the messages from your meditative mind, you get to refine them through continued reflection and meditation.
Until you are crystal clear.
And you know what you want.
Maximize the power of your practice. Expect it to serve you.
