Flowing in Pure Purpose

Peace & Grace Beautiful Ones…

So in the midst of my morning routine I got to thinking how we must train our minds to follow protocol to that which is necessary to our mind, body and spirit. Just as wee ones, little children we are programmed that in the morning you wash up, brush your teeth, have your breakfast and thus your day begins… Then you have night time routine of finish your chores, do your homework and say your prayers and off the sleepville you go.  It is important that we maintain these same principles in the continual cycle of adulthood. Only difference is, you must customize the practices you apply and do it like clockwork that it had to be done in order for you to accurately and successfully flow with your day.

With an array of schedules and to do task that build by the second we sometimes get off track or skip a beat.  But what I have found to be the balance is when you lock into that routine it sets the pace and tone of your mental and emotional reaction to the occurrences of your day as they play out of life’s big screen.  Soooooooooo I encourage you to strategize an active prayer life, rather you get on your knees, or pray in bed, or scripts prayers at night in a prayer journal or simply just roam around your house having an open conversation with GOD like you are speaking to a homegirl or homeboy.  Map out some quiet time just to soak up the essence of sweet solitude.  Meditate and rest your body and still your mind.  For most this is a tedium task as we are on go mode so much we neglect to just rest.  Still your mind and shut the power off and let all thoughts slowly run out and through your fingers, freeing you of worry, deadlines, to-do’s and etc.  Listen to your breath and feel your heart beat.  Now smile and thank GOD for that right there, that’s life and he is blowing your being with “life.” Now as you continue breathing any morsel of worry blow it out as if you are blowing out a fire quietly.  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh… Take some time to sip on some tea and let the healing herbs lubricate you.  Listen to your favorite record or cd and dance freely and live in that moment.  This is becoming one with self, enjoying self and loving self…

Upon customizing your routine, begin to do it daily and don’t beat yourself up if you skip a beat, it has to be learned before mastered.  Also just as you pray and prepare yourself to start your day and step outside your home, just as you wash your hands before breaking bread, keep your mind and spirit cleansed to be in tune and to flow consciously and intuitively.  In every simple task is a lesson, just embrace the blessing of truly innerstanding the grand concept and lesson that is being taught.

Love & Blessings to you, you, you and you. Monique “1MOpoeticSOUL” D.
