I inhale awesomeness and I exhale, well… I exhale awesomeness too ... So I can spread it around!
There are several mantras that say something like, “Inhale love, exhale hate;” “Inhale Peace, exhale fear” or, my personal favorite, “Inhale the good shit, exhale the bullshit.” And I do love these, but there are also times when I am just feeling so great, that I’m even exhaling the good shit!
If you’re feeling a little extra good today, why not try spreading that shit around; lord knows the world needs it. You can do that literally by doing a good deed for a friend like writing them a note to tell them what you love about them. Or you can do a random act of kindness, like leaving post it notes on the shelves of your local grocery store that say things like, “You are awesome!” or “You are perfect, just as you are!” This is fun to do with your kids.
Or you can do a meditation and energetically send your peace, joy and love to the world. It’s simple, here’s what you do….
Begin with grounding. Close your eyes and imagine roots growing out of the souls of feet until they reach the core of the earth and start pulling energy - health, happiness and joy - into your body.
Keep “filling” yourself with this beautiful energy until you feel your cup is overfilling; now this energy fills you and surrounds you.
Scoop your arms from your sides, hands cupped facing up, as if you’re scooping up all that life and energy that surrounds you into your hands.
As your hands reach above your head, release all of that beauty out into the world and visualize it as sparkling, colorful pieces of joy floating out into the world.
Bring your hands together and down to rest in prayer in front of your heart.
Do this as many times as you wish.
And thank you for spreading joy and love. You are awesomeness!
