A new year and a chance to transform yourself in the year to come, each day that unfolds in this new year it’s up to you to nourish your soul. It’s not about looking at the 365 days ahead but instead taking each day and living for that day. Wake up with gratitude and apparition for the giving day. Start by taking a deep breath in and exhaling and asking God how I can serve you today. Walk in the light instead of darkness and when negative thoughts or ego driven thoughts come into your head, ask yourself what does my soul need. Take time throughout your day to simply be. If you can help lift anyone up during the day, do so with a simple complement or act of kindness. Remember that you are a soul having a human experience, the words of Saint Francis of Assisi still ring true from ages ago.
Lord make Me an instrument of Your peace
Where there is hatred let me sow love.
Where there is injury, pardon.
Where there is doubt, faith.
Where there is despair, hope.
Where there is darkness, light.
Where there is sadness joy.
O Divine master grant that I may
Not so much seek to be consoled as to console
To be understood, as to understand.
To be loved. as to love
For it's in giving that we receive
And it's in pardoning that we are pardoned
And it's in dying that we are born...
To eternal life.
Pay attention to your soul, you are a physical being and a spiritual being. One of the ways I try to connect with the source and quite my mind is through nature, some call it intuitive walking. Let the daily thoughts of life out of your head and let your soul connect to the natural world. Slowly let the sounds of nature and your awareness become one. This is very grounding and vital for your physical and soul nourishment. We are primarily spiritual beings made up of vibrating energy. Our energy can be depleted by individuals and happenings in our daily life, it’s very important to try and live in the positive and feed our souls. As we embark on another yearly journey in our lives, try to be soul conscious and focus on each day and be mindful of our impact on those around us. It’s all about living a more soul driven life and connecting with our true self. Francis could not have said it any better, In giving of ourselves that we receive.
Happy and Healthy New Year
