#Challenge4: Do something for yourself and turn it into a ritual
1-#JustForToday: Visualize the person you want to be.
If you are still having trouble doing this, I know I am, try thinking of all the individuals whom have inspired you so far. What about them inspire you towards this person you know, or at least your subconscious knows, is inside? That person who has done, said or dared things you have only thought of and have always wanted to explore. The friend that stood their ground or the performer that killed it on stage. Our feelings, intuition, is your compass**.
2- #JustForToday: Calm down mind chatter.
Just for today stick with calming down mind chatter. It’s the hardest one but with the most substantial results. You are doing awesome, keep it up!
3- #JustForToday: Commit.
Commit to integrity. Just for today, do one thing that is in alignment with the being you want to be. Be the example
4- #JustForToday: Do something for yourself and turn it into a ritual.
Just for today, take 5 min, at least, for yourself. You deserve your own attention as much as the next. Yes I am once again putting a great amount of emphasis in regards to this! Do something that makes you feel good about yourself and relaxed. This challenge is to an extra importance this time because it is used in reconnecting with ourselves and reconnecting with ourselves is, as already mentioned, leadership 101. We can’t lead if we don’t know where we are leading too.
We know where we are leading too, when we know who we are.
We know who we are, when we have found ourself.
And we find our higher self, when we are responding in accordance with the greater good for ourself and for all.
The greatest Love of them all. Take this time for yourself and turn it as a ritual, make it sacred part of your day. It’s important. So just for today, take that 5 mins for yourself and sit alone on the stairs in front of your office. Or get that 5$ iced caramel frappuccino your crazing so much and enjoy every sip. Go for that jog, put on that mascara and or eyeliner your didn’t have time to put on this morning.

Yesterday was my sisters baby shower and if some of you don’t know, the energies that can be build up in a room due to egos clashing, stress, and wanting everything to be perfect are raised to another level. This is the case for any highly emotionally charged environment and/or situation. Sometimes it feels like your disarmed going into a void sky where anything can and will happen. I’ve had a lot of questions on meditation and weather or not it help’s keep composure. Yes, absolutely. Meditation is a tool I use daily, it’s easy, you can use it anywhere and it’s free. Better then any pill you can take because your building skills verses pushing the problem or situation aside. For these specific situations, meditation will give you more of, what we say in Croatian; strpljenje, patience. Regardless if you believe it or not, I’m sure we can all agree that there is no such thing as too much patience. Meditation, helps build our focus by making us better at eliminating distracting thoughts, emotions and/or daydreams that might infiltrate, flood and confuse our mind. I’ve already given a general description on how to meditate and its benefits, today I want to deepen the conceptualization for you by adding grounding. I’m in waits right now to finish my masters in Reiki and the journey has shed light on personal and universal mysteries and staying grounded is one that always comes back. Grounding simply means staying connected to source, your source being your environment and yourself. Lets push the idea of source here and include God or the celeste or whatever external source you relate to and push the idea of environment including Mother Nature to her core. I’m sure we can all agree that; We are Beings, using energy to interact whit one another by means of different “vibes”, vibrations, we receive. And these vibrations are channeled in regardless if you’re body and mind are able and ready to obtain these information. By staying focused and connected to what goes around us we are better equipped to face on these incoming vibrations/ info. Now lets do so with a grounding exercise. Visualize the exercise while you read and see how you feel. And absolutely feel free to share your opinion and/or your experience with us.
After you’ve read everything; Close your eyes, while adjusting your back to an upright position press your feet gently and comfortably enough to acknowledge their presence. Then imagine a grounding cord starting from the tip of the end of your spine going all the way down to Mother Earth’s magmatic core. You’ll feel your back straightening unintentionally, if it helps you can visualize roots coming out of your feet digging threw anything in the way, all the way into the ground again all the way down to the core. You will automatically feel like you have a firmer foundation. The clearer the channel, the stronger the foundation. From there you can take it another step and visualize a red magmatic light coming up the cord up threw your feet regenerating you. I will be talking about this part in details in later blogs.
From there imagine a cord starting from the top of your head aiming all the way to the sun and feel free to go beyond that. Again take it another step now and imagine a beautiful golden white light coming down and regenerating you once more.
You’re grounded. Apply it whenever and wherever you can. Regardless if its for mediation or not. Especially when you get overwhelmed. With enough practice you will connect automatically to your environment and eventually to source whichever that may be without having to think about it. That statement we keep hearing by great spiritual teachers like Eckhart Tolle“Stay in the present moment” in part is grounding, and bringing yourself back to a state of equilibrium, regaining focus of your true self and responding as such. 🙂
Happy Wednesday you Beautiful and Incredible Souls.
