In every moment of every day, we make choices. These choices dictate our mindset. Our mindset dictates our attitude and perceptions, which in turn, affects the next moment we live. In this beautiful session, we breath from our heart center as we contemplate Dorothy’s words of wisdom to wash over us.
Upon waking, majority of us go right into thinking mode. But, as Dorothy states, having our thoughts consume us right away upon waking takes us out of present moment awareness. Instead, she suggests we take a few moments to feel from our heart center.
When we feel from our heart center, we allow our authentic self to shine. Allowing our authentic self to shine, we are not allowing our thoughts to fool us. Because of that, we allow ourselves to truly feel.
Faced with abundant choices as we go about our day, Dorothy suggests that we periodically ask ourselves, what choices would I make if I allowed my heart to lead? Taking a moment to ask ourself this question gives us a moment to stop, feel and then proceed. In this way,we are remaining true to our authentic self.
Breathing from my heart center, I allowed Dorothy’s words to wash over me. Contemplating her words, I was reminded of what I do upon awakening. Upon awakening, I begin to tap various parts of my body to get energy flowing as I say thank you for the opportunities of a new day and set intentions. Then while doing an energetic breath technique, I state three things: what I’ll let go of, things I’m grateful for and what I’ll focus on as my day unfolds. As I brush my teeth and get dressed, I recite a loving kindness mantra. Doing these things helps to align my body, mind and spirit for my upcoming day.
Leading from our heart, we will naturally be kind to others as well as to ourselves. Leading from our heart, we will naturally choose actions that are beneficial for all. We will naturally do these things because when we lead from our heart, we will naturally choose love every time. Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
