I wake once more at 4:30am. I sit at my desk and light an incense and a candle. I ponder the nights dreaming and can hardly remember what they were about. This must mean I slept well, yes? It is Friday and my coworker has the day off. Although business is fairly slow this means I will have more to do, I am grateful.
I find a tune to listen to as I write this blog, and I share it here.
I listen for a little while as I stretch my arms out to my sides, and I rotate my neck, loosening the stiffness from sleep. I bend forward and slowly rise, stretching my spine. Palms together now at chin area, I close my eyes and listen closely. The vibration of my voice enters the room as I open my mouth and speak a tone, Aum, three times. I fold hands together and I smile slightly, this day has begun.
There is so much planned for the next month, I find it rather difficult to remain right here, right now, in my mind. This, however is where I need to be, I want to be certain I do not miss a thing. I release expectations of the future, how things will show up. I work toward peace of mind and heart, personally, and I let it flow into the world.
My mind is rather still this moment, a blessing and relief from times past, memories of racing thoughts. I determine this spring and summer will be a time for exercise in the open air, a taking in of the beauty of nature is on the schedule. Here I am, once again moving forward as my body stays still.
And so I focus on my flesh and how it feels as the blood pulses through my body. I focus on the energetic output, listening for any signs it wishes for me to know. Relaxing my spine against my chair I lean back, and listen, breathing deeply.
I open my eyes and look around me at the things which I have surrounded myself with. Rocks, candles, incense, essential oils, a painting of a meadow in fog, tree lined and beautiful. I reach my arms above my head and stretch, bringing them down slowly to my side. The time has come to prepare for the day, I ready myself … and I let this music continue as I do.
