Wow! This is Card # 5 and it’s totally blown me away. I have been doing some of the things mentioned here or rather doing them my own way, not daily, nevertheless the journey has started.
♦ With Day#1 of this deck, I have started a 10 minute meditation practice daily by myself and noticed a me that reacts a little slower to situations/words now ♦
♠ I demarcated a pretty little jar as a piggy bank to collect my wishes – Yup you may call it a Wish Jar. I sit down quietly anytime of the day, think about what I really really want and put it down on a piece of paper, fold it and drop it in this jar. (Since I started about 10 days ago, 2 wishes have already come true) ♠
♣ 15 days back I started a Gratitude Diary wherein I write down a thank you for any one thing that happened in that day or in a person or… (I am seeing a more satisfied me) ♣
♥ A month back I started writing in a diary the contemplative thoughts that has started to surface after the sunday meditation sessions; in fact this was initiated during a workshop I attended there. (Lot of my mental keedas are being set free in this) ♥
♥♥ For sometime now, I have been making a conscious effort to appreciate things in people around me. A skill, a quality, for being in my life, for a kind heart…… this is all from the bottom of my heart and came up on its own ♥♥
Now I need to strengthen this practice without using excuses to let myself off; for I know this is helping me.
Do you keep a journal? How does that help you?
