Shedding the Weight: Mind, Body and Spirit – Bonus Day 22 – One Thing to Celebrate Every Day

This is a bonus day that sort of ties everything together. Today we are reminded to celebrate and appreciate everyday.

As life becomes richer and more fulfilling, our entire perspective shifts. We see that life itself, the simple fact of being here, is cause for celebration. We celebrate that the true self brings constant love and support. We recognize the spiritual core of every human being is freedom, love, and joy. In a world weighed down by many burdens, this is the most uplifting truth we can follow.


One Thing to Celebrate Every Day

Today’s Centering Thought is: Every day I accept the incredible gift of being here.
Today’s Mantra: Lila Hum (I am the playfulness of creation.)

Center yourself to begin a quiet solitude of mind and spirit with the thought “Every day I accept the incredible gift of being here.” Then begin to meditate by focusing on your breath and repeating the mantra: Lila Hum. Take deep breaths and with each breathe feel your mind body and spirit open just a little more to this affirmation. Each time your mind wanders come back by repeating this mantra and hold the meaning behind it – “I am the playfulness of creation.” Simply meditate for 20 minutes.
