“The more you are grateful for what you have the more you can live fully in the present.” ― Dana Arcuri
Today’s quote by Dana Arcuri reminds us to be in the present. If you can appreciate what you have right now in this moment, the more you can love the present moment and hence your present life. In the same way beliefs give us a sense of renewal every day because we see new possibilities every day that we remember and face our beliefs. So you can literally be unstoppable when you are truly connected with your most positive beliefs.
Today’s Message of the Day:
“In today’s meditation, we explore how our positive beliefs expand our horizons in life. Positive beliefs are connected to our true self and so their energy is life-affirming and nurturing. They promote love, happiness, and creativity, foster all aspects of our life, and encourage our awareness to grow and expand.
When you become aware of the positive beliefs within your true self, you open yourself to unlimited possibilities. Just by connecting to your inner Being, all of these beneficial beliefs are activated and supported naturally, without effort or analysis.”
The CENTERING THOUGHT for today’s meditation experience was:
“Belief renews me every day.”
The SANSKRIT MANTRA used in the meditation:
Sat Chit Ananda
(Life is absolute bliss consciousness)
Today’s mantra describes ultimate reality as absolute bliss consciousness. It enlivens all the impulses from within our being. Get into this blissful mode by sitting still with today’s centering thought and chanting this mantra if your mind wanders.
Today’s four journal prompts were:
- Write down the following core beliefs of your true self, and any others you like: “It’s better to be open than to close yourself off.” “Life is always open to new possibilities.” “For every challenge, there’s a solution.” “Self-awareness has the power to transform.” “A person’s outer life reflects their inner life.”
- For each core belief, put a plus or minus sign depending on whether this belief is one you personally hold. You can add extra pluses and minuses for those you strongly believe or disbelieve.
- Wherever you put a plus, write down why you feel this way. Wherever you put a minus, also describe why you feel this way, but add how you might change the minus to a plus.
- Use this space to reflect further on your experience today.
Today’s journal exercises are a bit more guided and not open ended questions. But it really gets you thinking. Which of the core beliefs do you truly hold? Are there any you disagree with? How about some new core beliefs? Let’s hear them!
