Connect to your Inner Truth
“Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they are never weakness”
– Brené Brown, author and researcher
When we practice gratitude, we open our hearts and are able to connect more easily to our inner truth.
In the Mindful Morning, we practiced gratitude using a simple journaling exercise.
I invite you to take a few minutes, and answer these 3 questions:
- What are you most grateful for in your home? (This could be your actual house, the garden, or could be that which you associate with home, or it could be your family or children)
- What 3 things are you grateful for in your daily, working life (this applies to everyone, whether you are a mother or a manager)
- What are you most grateful for in your inner world or spiritual life?
Once you have completed the journaling, gently close your eyes for a moment, and connect to the feeling of gratitude.
Where do you feel gratitude in your body, what does it feel like?
Perhaps some of you will experience a heart-opening moment, which may result in tears of gratitude, and others may experience a feeling of softness, peace, or calm.
If you wish, you may stay in the moment, with your eyes closed, and silently repeat the Sanskrit mantra SATYA, meaning inner truth. Mantra’s are extremely powerful in helping us to raise our energetic vibration.
When we practice living from our inner truth, we are clear and compassionate with our thoughts, words and actions. And we inspire others to speak from a place of truthfulness as well, which in turn nurtures clarity, resonance, and connection.
