Secrets of Soulful Living
By Maria Gurney Peth PhD
Health, happiness and success is a synergetic function of the mind, body and soul. Your mind has a powerful influence on the way your body functions and ultimately the direction of your life. Mindfulness, means to pay attention to your own thoughts and emotions and set an intention of “attention” for what you truly desire.
Living with soulful intentions is to begin each day with an attitude of health, happiness and prosperity. We are unstoppable and powerful when we direct our emotions toward the higher levels of consciousness. Levels of consciousness is actually a way to measure one’s attitude, and positivity. In my soulful living classes and retreats, I invite others to begin their day with a statement of gratitude of what is immediately within their heart the moment they awaken. Often this is an appreciation of the comfortable bedding and cozy abode they awaken to.
Examples of mindful intentions for a great start to your day: “I love my bed.”, “I am grateful for my comfortable home.”, “I feel healthy and joyful.”.
Meditation is a foundational strategy for soulful living. The practice of quieting the mind is in essence, letting go of all that you know so that you can grow. A meaningful time of reflection and silence is a powerful tool to realizing your soul’s purpose. Give yourself permission to be still and simply breathe, while systematically releasing the troubles and issues in the foreground of your mind. One way to meditate is to focus on your breath, a mantra, a vision of peace, or softly repeat a prayer for 15 to 20 minutes. During this reflective time, allow the stillness to open the door to your soul’s gentle guidance.
The secret of a joyful life begins with discovering your greatest gifts and having a clear sense of purpose each day. Centering and meditation is the ground work of personal clarity and success. This isn’t about expecting a lightening bolt of awareness to suddenly strike, revealing the answers of the universe, rather -meditative practice brings awakening clues and very subtle revelations of your soul’s inner most truth.
“And suddenly you just know…It’s time to start something new and trust the magic of beginning.” -Meister Eckhart
