Hello world, happy mid-week.
January 2018, is making its way out and I have successfuly completed a month of meditation using not one but 3 awesome books (PN: a very intense experience, glad two of the books were for a month only…wouldn’t do that again next time). Anyway, wow, girl am proud of you especially given the events of this past month and near 2 weeks of ill health. I mean, if I could persist, then you can imagine how good it was. I took my books even for mami mami’s burial in the village. Indeed, I so benefited from the meditation that I felt to introduce family meditation would be the right thing to do instead of just lecturing the boys on what I was learning. They had already been curious enough .
The above book is one of those I was using, written by Gerald Jampolsky and his lovely wife Diane (talk of me having a crush on anyone with this name 🐩, my ears fall in their aura lol) founders of Attitudinal Healing and Attitudinal Healing International respectively. That book has 18 cards to use each other day, and some other great stuff which I also find kids friendly. David our record man wrote it out on the board so we see that daily and make the choice we want to experience each moment.
We therefore started off today with a powerful poem at the end of the book captioned: “Love is for Everyone”. We took turns reading a stanza, we reflected and shared and promised to try to live that poem today…
Dear all, another soulful journey am embarking my family on, I sincerely wish we make it to a more serene spot and that someone reading this gets inspired or stays motivated.
I kicked of this year of Grace with a big kick which landed me back in bed with an RA Flare, some emotional and mental muggles and etc. But am Alive as WH (RIP) sang and am Grateful for that.
