Daily personal practices are something I have been developing and doing faithfully now, consciously, for many years.
I begin each day with prayers and affirmations. No matter where I am, at home or traveling.
I took my first personal growth class in 1974, where I learned how to meditate, and began my journey of learning more about me, people, life, and spirituality. I began meditating using visualization and using the colors of the rainbow to calm and still my body, my mind, and feel the oneness of all of us as souls.
Using breath, deep breathing, is a very important piece in calming ourselves and shifting into a state to receive from God and to get in touch with our essence. It actually lowers blood pressure as well!
Today I meditate most afternoons. I am using a guided meditation now, with music and using deep breathing. Meditation keeps me living a more peaceful and loving day. Then ultimately, my life.
Consistency is vital when making shifts and changes in ourselves. As the author of the book , The Compound Effect, Darren Hardy says, it’s doing the little things over and over, that make the big differences.
My other morning personal practices are reading from a few inspirational books and writing in a gratitude journal.
I also workout out at a health club in the mornings, usually 4 mornings per week.
As I’m falling asleep each night, I give thanks for my day and then ask God to give me whatever I am to know, help me to understand or hear what He is saying, and then help me to get into action when action is appropriate.
I have found that following the many personal practices that I have for many years now, adding in new ones from time to time, has kept me a happier person, more apt to make the better choices for my days. I know they have helped me to love myself and I am better able to live from my purpose: living in joy and inspiring others to live in joy.
So, I ask you, can you add in at least one personal practice every morning, every night, every day? Will you choose to? If you do, I know you will be happy you did!
