I’ve already noticed that by taking 10 minutes to write these past two days, the barriers in my mind are loosening. The simplicity of committing to only 10 minutes of self-love writing manifested with me bringing Qi-Gong into my body yesterday morning.
This is something my mind has told me I don’t have time for in the morning. It has said, “You’d have to wake up too early to do it” “It takes too long” and a myriad of other thoughts that have kept me blinded to the ease with which anything can be done if I break through the barrier of my saboteur.
This morning I looked at the clock, it was 7:00 am. Before getting dressed and before writing I decided to cultivate a Qi field of love around my body and invite it in. This simple practice has me feeling better, more energetic and awake.
I’ll go to my acupuncture appointment today and continue to love and care for my body the way it needs. As my body ages its telling me that consistency, not length of time is what it needs when I’m focusing loving thoughts and actions towards it.
I’m listening body. Thanks for your messages.
Thank you to all the Love Warriors who are now writing and posting. We’re creating a collective Self-Love energy that is enabling me to bring loving behaviors into my life with more ease.
Blessings to all,
