You know when something just feels good? Not like the 2nd glass of wine or the aftertaste of a perfectly baked morsel, more like the good that your soul feels when an “out of the ordinary” moment or encounter takes place? It usually happens when there is no expectation attached, many times it is unplanned.
This GOOD feeling thing is a thing.
I am still learning about it, but I never forget when I feel it. This time that I am away, I have been more intentionally aware of it, that is the gate to the road towards this.
I try and keep it simple:
Take care of your body– eat or drink something that makes you feel GOOD (mine is green juice and then some days it is a poached egg on a great piece of toast with butter).
-Do something that makes your body feel good (mine is stretching).
Try something out of the ordinary for your mind– read something out of the ordinary, pick up a pencil and a blank notebook and see what comes out. (mine is historical fiction and journaling).
STOP, for the sake of your SOUL. For those that this scares, DO NOT BE AFRAID OF LISTENING TO YOUR OWN BREATH. Start short, start small, and as you see thoughts and distractions intoxicate your head, see them leave and listen for your breath. If you are so courageous to try this, please let me know how it went. Tell me how you felt after. I will share my experience another time, all I will say about my experience is that I was a complete virgin to this, which added to the significance of beginning this practice. I had NO CLUE what I was doing, so don’t be intimidated by it, just try it and update me.
Then GO, do you and your day.
Before you go to sleep, check in on yourself, if there is something there, write it down. Ask yourself if anything struck you as “different”, unique, etc.
After you TOOK CARE of your body, TRIED something different for your MIND, attempted to QUIET your SOUL… before you went on with your day, did it feel good?
love you people.
