“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”
~ Gautama Buddha
I’m late to blogging this morning.
As I do every morning, when I woke up I tuned in to myself – to see how I felt, to feel what I needed.
And what I needed was more sleep. So, ignoring my brain, which was telling me ‘hurry up, get up, meditate, blog, write…’ I listened to my body, and I rolled over and went back to sleep.
This year my Power Word is HEAL. So, this practice of being aware of my body has become even more important. I can’t just blunder through the day ignoring how I truly feel, or what I might need in order to bring myself back to balance.
So, I tune in to myself regularly – at least three or four times a day starting with when I first wake. I take a few calming breaths, and bring my mindfulness to myself. How am I feeling? What’s happening for me? Is there anything I need? Is there anything I need to know?
This self-mindfulness has been such a useful tool for me over the years, as I work to get to truly know, understand and care for myself. It promotes intuition and self-love. It helps you to truly know yourself.
How about you? Do you take time to tune in to yourself? Do you take time to give your body and your soul what they need?
Maybe it’s time.
Sending oodles of love your way,
