DAILY TRANSFORMATIONAL NUGGETS FOR THE BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT: 31 Days of Setting Intentions – Day 10 “Recognizing Eternity”
Today’s Body Connection: Set the intention to know eternal life through the practice. Did you know that you could add ten to 20 years to your life by working out? The physical practice is the fountain of youth and it’s time to tap it. Every time you train, it is accumulative. Restoration of the body requires a daily practice that takes time before you see the payoff, but it is happening. One of the first things that people will notice is that you look younger. You will hear compliments like, “Did you have work done?” or “There’s something different about you. You look younger.” Truth is, you are younger in spirit and, yes, you have had work done: inner work.
Today’s Meditative Thought: The deepest awareness that we can have is our own eternity. Once we realize that we are spiritual beings, having a human incarnation, that our spirit is never born and will never die, life becomes meaningful. In 2012, I experienced a great deal of what appeared to be loss. My sister Beth, two aunts, several close family friends, and a student of mine all made their transition into “life after life.” My “human incarnation” experienced grief and pain, and some days I felt as if life did not have a purpose. It wasn’t until I consciously began to do spiritual work around life eternal did my perception shift. Daily I prayed and meditated on life never-ending. I asked the Universe to show Eternity to me. Every time I did, I felt the presence of my loved ones around me. I felt comfort and a sense of peace. For me, this is evidence of eternity.
Another lesson that I learned through this experience is that I do not have to wait until someone leaves this side of existence to anchor an eternity consciousness. A daily practice builds spiritual consciousness so that I am prepared when the turbulent waves of the sea of life hit.
We are all created from God; therefore we are everlasting. Set the intention to know your infinite self. It is the spiritual practice that allows us to tap into the open space of Divine Eternity.
Today’s Action Plan: Today, ask to know eternity. Close your eyes and breathe in. Contemplate life eternal through your daily meditation. Be still and know your eternity.
Today’s Affirmation: Just for this moment…just for this breath, I live the eternal life of God with high intentions. My life is the blessing that empowers the world and all is well. And so it is. Amen.
