CENTERING THOUGHT: Hope is my source of strength. SANSKRIT MANTRA: Sheevo Hum. (I am pure potentiality.) 1.) Hope supports you when you give it a direction. Write down three things you hope for in your life, i.e. more fulfilling relationships, a better time at work, or inner optimism. Having written these things down, take each one, close your eyes, and repeat each hope silently to yourself with your attention on your heart center. Feel the promise of how hope can warm and expand the heart. Peace Discernment Success 2.) For each of the three things you hope for, write down one action you can take today that will help to bring it about. A small step is perfectly fine, and you should always start within your comfort zone. The point is to begin to act so that hope’s power can be awakened. Let things go. The discernment is there. I just wish that it strengthens and stays with me along the way. I also hope that I continue to trust it and myself. Stay focused. 3.) Taking those same three items you hope for, journal about how you believe you will feel when that hope is attained. Is it relief, elation, freedom, a sense of belonging, love, accomplishment? Some of these hopes have been attained in a certain regard but could be strengthened, heightened, and honed a bit. I often wonder can you get to a place where complete fulfillment is attained. Then there are times where I feel I have those things in my current state. When I feel as though I am actively in those spaces, I feel free. In turn I am happier, more productive, and pleasant. 4.) Daily Reflection: No one said this life was easy. No one said we would have all the answers. The most certain thing in life is uncertainty. Everything changes or has the potential to. Over the past week or so, I have been feeling so out of my element. My energy hasn’t been right and I possibly could have been projecting that into people’s spaces. When things are going seemingly well and you and your faith seem to be unmovable, things will happen to test you. I wonder why flirting with the edge is so thrilling. Why is dancing in darkness so intriguing? Hope is a delicate thing and where there is no hope, often times there is no life. We all deserve hope, even in the slightest and smallest regard. To deprive someone of it is just like taking a life. It’s easy to transmute pain into anger but it’s not easy to erase the marks you leave as you allow yourself to spiral. Sometimes the methods we use to cope internally can damage the things we have worked so hard to build and overcome externally. I can only hope that as I continue to grow and as my business continues to grow that I make the proper decisions, carry myself in a manner that is true to me and aligned with my purpose, and remain unapologetic about all of the above. “Hope In Uncertain Times” is a 21-Day Guided Meditation created by Oprah Winfrey & Deepak Chopra, to learn more click here.
