affirmation for today - i honour my commitments to myself and others.
after a day of focusing on my deep breathing yesterday, i woke up this morning feeling very aware of the air around me. i breathed in deeply.....it was drizzling rain outside and numerous types of bird were announcing their awakening also. it was a nice start to my day.
i am still feeling unwell so, i chose level one from the tasks which was to commit to one empowering action daily. the area i have had the most problem committing to lately has been my art and creativity because my life always seems to be filled with so many distractions. necessary ones but distractions nonetheless. i had already committed to posting art or something creative on my blog daily for the month of november so, to that, i have decided to add a daily 15 minute meditation. i was tempted to add one or two more things from the list as there were a few that appealed to me but, denise said to choose one, and i fear that i may over-commit and let myself down if i take on too much, too soon. baby steps......
my meditation attempts in the past have never become habitual even though it's something i have always yearned to do on a daily basis. so, this morning, i sat on my bedroom floor and meditated, focusing on my breath. it went very well, though at one stage my back was hurting quite badly but i chose to persevere and kept drawing my focus back to my breath. to emphasise my new commitment, i chose to base my art for today around meditation......the Buddha, candle, lotus flower, chakras and the symbol 'he' which stands for harmony, all symbols of peace, tranquility and balance.
blessings to all ~
