As I have mentioned, I am doing an at-home course called Inner Mean Girl Reform School. One of the last lessons I did was about incorporating a "Daily Practice" into my routine. When I first heard about this, I wasn't so sure. But as learned more, I realized that I pretty much already had a "Daily Practice", I just hadn't thought about it as such.
Most days I find time to take a bath. Some days I use it to energize myself to start the day and other days I find myself needing to soak away my stress in the middle of the afternoon or evening. One piece that I realized was missing from my "Daily Practice" was making a conscious decision to take time, pause, and find a connection with my Inner Wisdom.
So I have been trying to incorporate my Inner Wisdom into my bath time. Recently I have closed my eyes and asked "What does my Inner Wisdom want me to know today?" and I have been pleasantly surprised about my insights. Some of the nuggets of goodness I heard include:
- "Pauses move you forward."
- "Sometimes, the silence of thought, is good."
- "Love your body, it takes you places."
- "Each day is a new day, each hour is a new hour, each moment is a new moment. You get to choose what to do with each."
- "You are changeable."
Anyway, another thing about my Inner Wisdom, is that she has a theme song. And, I find this very amusing, yet incredibly telling. Every time I have a chat with her, in the background of my brain, I hear The Eagles, A Peaceful Easy Feeling (with a few words changed).
"I've got a peaceful easy feeling, and I won't let you down.
Cuz' you're already standin' on the ground."
So today, I am thankful for the peaceful easy feeling and strength that my Inner Wisdom gives me.
