Talk of meditating and being intentional about having a morning practice before you’re off to the races is nothing new.
I’ve been reading about this practice since I was a kid but it’s been around forever, according to Wikipedia, it’s mentioned in the bible 23 times, 19 of those times in the book of Psalms.
I have a morning practice that is important to me and my journey of showing up as the best version of myself every day, but it isn’t always easy and getting to this place has been quite the journey as well.
The problem with getting into a deliberate practice is that we live in a culture that thinks it’s so busy, that thinks there just isn’t time for that nonsense.
I completely disagree.
We can’t afford to not take time for what others may call nonsense.
My morning practice often takes an hour, some special days I allow it to take as long as it takes to get to where I feel it’s done. Then there are days when it is only a few minutes long or done while doing other tasks I do to get ready for my day, like brushing my teeth, washing my face, etc.
The fun fact is I currently get more done in a day than I ever have while hardly ever feeling busy. The even more exciting thing about this for me is that I am still young in the practice of managing my mind, so where all of this will go in the future motivates me to keep going.
I used to feel super guilty about this practice.
“What will other people think.”
“People will think I’m lazy.”
“People will think I’ve lost it.”
All of those thoughts that I used to struggle with, and sometimes still do, are thoughts about how I look to others verses trusting what is best for me in my life.
I then remember that I am the boss of my brain and I reign it back in.
I remind my brain that what others think is their own business, not mine.
I remind myself of how I fully approve of myself and that I am unwilling to reject myself because of others who may reject me.
I remember that I am willing to risk everyone’s rejection, except my own.
I have come to cherish and appreciate the value of this time, not only for me but for everyone that I encounter and pray for during that time.
Part of the practice includes my journal.
My journal is a place where I do daily thought downloads as well as unintentional and intentional thought models.
This journal has a multi-faceted purpose, one of which I experienced today.
This experience prompted this post, so I’d like to share it with you.
As you already know, I do a daily thought download and then look at both unintentional and intentional models from this download.
During my time this morning I was looking at a previous thought model from the day before and the result I had gotten in that model. Suddenly I was overcome with the true – more useful result that allowed me to open up to my next best version of myself.
That’s the power of my journal and this work.
It allows me to update more frequently than my Apple products!
