Starting Your Day

Upon awakening, begin to notice the sounds around you. Birds calling each other , people making coffee in the kitchen, cars going by- all beginnings of a new day.

Feel how relaxed your body is. Notice your breathing.  Begin to breathe deliberately into each part of your body.  Breathe with your toes,  your feet, your ankles.  You are waking yourself up with your own energy.  Breathe with your calves,  your knees, your thighs.  Breathe with your hips and belly.  Breathe with your solar plexus,  your heart. Breathe through your arms and hands, your shoulders.  Breathe with your throat.  Breathe lightly through your ears.  Breathe lightly with your eyes, clearing your sight.  Breathe with your brain, oxygenizing all the cells and connections there.  Let the breath be a bubbling breath, letting go of all heaviness as you become more and more awake, breathing now with your whole body.

By now, you might feel a bit fluttery, so bring in a core of energy from above your head, as wide as your body.  Bring it all the way through to below your feet.  I picture this as literally a golden core of light.  Make it wider still, expanding to fill your aura, filling in any little rips or tears.

Feel this core energy as very strong, anchoring you to earth and sky.

Now, think about your day-  what you plan to do, what you must do.  See yourself walking through your day and everything going well.  You don't have to go into detail, just things generally working out the way you planned.  Breath and relax and say to yourself, "I'm going to have a perfect day."

Approach your day from this energized yet calm place.  With clear seeing, clear hearing, clear speaking and an open heart for this chance to live this day, on this earth, right now.
Blessings to you on your journey today-
