As people get older they move from left brain to right brain thinking.
As people get older they usually find themselves moving away from their left brain where the ego mind runs the show into their right brain where their intuition allows them to discover the 99% of reality that exists beyond what the 5 senses detect.
Getting in touch with your Higher Self offers a reliable quick start on that journey to form some new habits that will change your experience of life. Meditation fulfills that purpose for many people including me. I thought perhaps sharing how I begin and end my day might give you some ideas to get you started.
Before getting out of bed I begin my meditation
I do so in many steps. First I say a special blessing for every name on the Healing List of my ministry. Then I move to my personal intention. That means I request what I seek a solution to.
From there I move into speaking my truth as God repeating the traits that characterize the Source (love, abundance, giving and receiving, etc.) After all, each of us is a Divine Spirit, a part of that All-Is-One. How do I do that? With these words, “God is love. I am God. I am love” and so on.
Next I ask for 3 things I want to do an even better job of in life, like, “Show me how to do an even better job of hearing my Spirit’s guidance today.” Why? I acknowledge that I already do something well and know I can do it even better–when I know how. I do the “what” and The Universe does the “how.”
Before ending my meditation, I form an energy ball for that day. I request what I intend to experience that day like doing something fun, eliminating judgments, feeling compassion for others, and always I ask for a gift from the Universe that leaves me feeling happy and calm.
I do all of that before getting out of bed. Yes, it takes a while. I wake up very early, often before even a hint of the sunrise.
Then I get up and look in my mirrors.
My two mirrors sit on right angle walls so I get two views of me! (Realize this is me who never used to look in mirrors at all!) and I power myself into my day. I probably sound like a Southern Baptist minister leading a revival. I get fired up!
Finally I scan the 72 Names of God in Aramaic, something I learned from the Kabbalah. And, when I am completely in my routine, I workout.
You know what? If I miss any part of it my day just flows differently and my energy feels lower. I’ve been doing most of this routine since 1997. You know it is habit. And habits form futures.
Yes, my routine takes a while.
Precisely the reason why, when I turn on my computer I set my Mind Movie to play all day long.
You heard of a vision board, yes? Well, a Mind Movie is a vision board made into a movie with music added. PLUS I control how visibly it displays–so I can see through it while doing my work or I watch it solidly fill up my screen. Oh yeah, I control the volume of the music too.
So all day long, regardless of what I do on the computer, I get audio and visual subliminal or full-out visions of my desires playing into my subconscious mind making new programs to replace the old negative ones that keep me stuck.
Simple, isn’t it?
Very. It takes just minutes to create one when you have the software. If you want the details click here or on Mind Movies over on the sidebar.
Now why would I want to do make and run a Mind Movie?
Well, you see how much time I invest to get my head in the best place each morning, right? Why in the world would I take a chance on letting my mind run the same old negative programs all day long that it tends to do? Everyday you think 95% of the same 65,000 thoughts you thought the day before. That much negative stuck energy would absolutely cancel out all my morning ritual results and evening results put together.
No way will I let that happen! I deserve the bet of everything. How about you?
Bedtime is for gratitude.
I also will not go to sleep at night until I’ve written at least 5 things for which to be grateful for that day. Not only does that habit keep me looking for things for which to be grateful and tell the Universe I do that (so I constantly receive more for which to be grateful) but it sets that energy into my subconscious mind so while I sleep my Spirit (your subconscious mind and Spirit are the same thing) works on gratitude too. No wonder I usually sleep so well.
Sounds like a lot, huh? Well I started with the meditation and exercise.
Only injuries keep me from exercising. Nothing keeps me from meditation because I can do that any place!
Start with one step you enjoy or you will not do it.
Create a habit that will change how you live your life.
