We move forward one step at a time, and each step is a moment to decide what we are planting. If you sow the same seeds in the same poor soil, the plants that emerge will look the same, and perhaps a little more worn.
Plant new seeds in fresh, nourished soil and what arises is both powerful and impactful. These seeds that emerge as new growth, put us on a new path. The choice of seeds determines what that path will be.
Being consistent in choosing our path and doing one thing every day to support this, determines the direction in which our life will move.
Just as daily exercise changes the shape of your body, daily practices for the mind and Spirit influence the direction of your life.
Life flows in the direction we point in. We get to choose what our tomorrow looks like through the actions of today. When you are going through a tough time, having someone tell you to raise your vibration can be really annoying, but the truth is we are constantly creating our lives through our thoughts. We can choose to create more of what is or we can choose to incrementally shift the needle and create a better day tomorrow. Even the smallest of shifts makes a massive difference over time.
Find practices that feed your being and raise your vibration and create a life that fills you with joy.
- What do you need to raise your vibration each day? Perhaps it is listening to someone who inspires and motivates you, or a physical activity that makes you feel alive. It may be meditation or a breathing exercise. Choose a time of day that you feel this activity would have the most impact for you. The time you choose is important so that you can comfortably dedicate that time to the activity, even if all you have is five minutes.
- Be consistent in whatever practices you choose. When it stops feeling good to you, find something else that fits. The point is not the repetition, but the effect you receive. The consistency is about developing the habit of feeling good so then if you feel anything less that good, you can immediately notice and adjust your path.
- Have a toolbox of things that make you feel good. Perhaps a physical activity, an audio, a playlist, a book – any selection that works for your mind and personality. Having it on hand means you can reach for any of the above whenever you feel yourself going to a negative place. You can simply reach for whatever you are able to use in that moment and uplift yourself immediately, instead of having to look for something when you feel bad. If you wait until you need it, you likely won’t be in a state to use that tool.
We are constantly growing and flowing. Choose the seeds you will plant and the garden you wish to grow!
