Weekly masses, self help books, support groups and friends, recently this site, walks in nature, practicing yoga, group exercise classes and a wellness program at work.
Some sense of skepticism that doesn’t just believe something someone told me or make assumptions from article headlines in the press with doing some research of my own.
I read and reflect on the Grateful Living Word for the Day, write in my gratitude journal, attend a gratitude group meeting and offer prayers of gratitude daily. I often listen to music that reminds me to be grateful and engage in one-to-one conversation about gratitude with family and friends. Sometimes I also read about gratitude and the difference it makes in our quality of life and relationships.
Practicing gratitude as soon as my eyes open & throughout my day. Coming to this site and others for spiritual guidance & grounding, with my coffee.
Reading poetry at “A First Sip”, absolutely delightful site.
Spending time reading spiritual passages, in prayer, meditating & practicing yoga.
Walking daily. Remembering my breath.
The practice of spending time
(typically first thing in the morning)
reflecting, contemplating, and writing
down my thoughts, has been
transformative. This practice replaces
my former lifelong ritual of reading
You can imagine the difference and
I love the way it sets me up for a more
positive and productive day.
Starting my day by visiting this site and soaking in all the wisdom from all of you. I don’t take the time to post my own reflection very often, but the word of the day and the reflections from this community help get me off to a good start. Mahalo to all of you and to the folks who run this website. 💙🙏
I stopped living the question, “Who is God?” and I started living the question, “Who am I?”
My daily and before bed meditations.. learning to focus on the breath when needed to live in the present. To acknowledge things or people who I have in my life on a daily routine, light a candle and write my journal.
Reading reading reading! I’ve been a voracious reader all my life. I don’t find guidance only in books intended for that–I find it everywhere, in insights that might be something a character in a novel says. I capture quotations in my journal and someday perhaps I’ll compile them thematically and revisit those books in memory.
Every morning I read poetry and visit this site. Sometimes I might find guidance; I think of it more as a practice and not a search. Thank you all for what you share that forms connections among us. My meditation practice, while sporadic, has given me the eternally helpful reminder to simply breathe–guidance I can rely on any time.
I do this exact same thing. I have a hand and computer journal of books that I have read and both have many quotes that I write down from the books. I keep thinking I should go back and read them but don’t get it done. I have always believed that writing helps us internalize things so hopefully when I wrote them in the journals at least the more important ones have become a part of me.
How is your wrist?
Thank you for this! I also do this wirh booms, finding messages and guidance through fictional characters. I just didn’t realize it. I like the idea for compiling all the quotes you find helpful
Meditation, readings, this site.
Quiet time in the morning; washing dishes by hand. Meeting with spiritual companion monthly.
Quiet time in the morning, washing dishes by hand has become meditative too. Meeting monthly with spiritual companion.
I really try to stay in the present moment as much as I can. I’ve been wanting to develop a practice in the morning to start off my day and i think this site will lead me in the right direction.
To begin my day with a moment with a prayer of thanks in the garden or fresh outdoors.
