Day 141 - Today I was up at 5:30 am. Very excited about the day ahead as I had booked on a rest and relaxation retreat day at Polinsa House in Cornwall. Up this early and on the first official day of spring the mornings have already got lighter with more sunlight.
I completed my miracle morning routine of silence sit spot, affirmations, visualisation, exercise (today was yoga) and reading and writing in my journal. Even though I knew I would be doing a lot of this durning the day. I still like to start my day this way.
Having time out to recharge amongst like minded people is so important when life is busy. I schedule different times through the year when I can do this. (Scheduling is to ensure they happen!) Those around me respect and understand that this is an important part of my self care, self love and personal development, so I can come back and still be there for them.
Finding time out to and reconnect to our own inner stillness can bring such harmony and balance to our life. Allowing the opportunity for clarity, focus , dream state and goal setting to thrive. I find in sometimes getting away from the interference of normal life , responsibilitys, technology, the general demands of time and daily distractions can allow ourselves the opportunity to become at one, allow us to respond with grace and fluidity for our future path and any challenges we may have.
So the day day consisted of sound therapy with tuning forks, sound bath and drumming. Journal time and card reading. Meditation, visualisation and communication, through sharing of experiences and being out in nature.
Debbi Walker our host took great care to facilitate this space and time for us and shared the poem and music you see below with us.
A special day and one I would recommend to anyone wanting to experience similar. I am in gratitude for opportunity to do this. If you are going to lead a happy, healthy and fulfilled life you too should consider how you manage your self care and stillness.
