Wide Awake Tip: a.m. Intention-Setting & Inspirational Quote: Ghandi

“I have so much to accomplish today that I must meditate for two hours instead of one.”

Mahatma Gandhi

What do you do in the morning to prepare for your day? You likely clean your teeth and wash and feed your body.  But what about maintaining your connection with your higher self and inner wisdom?  Do you refresh your connection to Source and to your Calling or life’s purpose?

Don’t be a victim to your day and your duties.  You are so much more than that. Decide right now to make ONE change.  Either set up a morning spiritual refresh activity or strengthen the one you have.

  • Can you do a 10-minute relaxation meditation?
  • Can you restfully contemplate your life purpose goals and vision for the world?
  • Can you connect with the results you seek and visualize them so you can bring them out into the world?
  • Can you sit quietly, ask a question, and listen for guidance or for today’s ideal focus or task?

You may resist this change for the first several days, but I challenge you to do this for 10 solid days in a row and see how it goes.

I don’t know about you, but if Ghandi found a morning refresh and centering worked for him, I’m inclined to think he knows something I haven’t figured out yet, and I’m willing to try it.  He was after all extremely effective at creating positive change.

Remember too that being “on” requires being “off”. Being successful out in the world requires inner success first.  The more centered, grounded, Connected, whole, happy, and spiritually refreshed you are, the better you can do what you were born to do.  And the more permanent positive change (aka healing) you can create in the world.

You can do this!  You were born to do this.

  1. Daria, good reminder that being on requires being off. Crazed world that we live in sometimes lets us neglect the off. Thanks. Morna
