As I sat quietly this morning feeling (not thinking) how I wanted to start my day, I closed my eyes to sit in meditative silence. Sometimes I simply breathe mindfully allowing my brain and body to quiet down. I may listen to nature sounds or ocean waves and be lulled by their beautiful flow. Other days I find myself having a conversation with the universe or like today, a simple mantra came into my mind. I went with the mantra.
As I am getting close to releasing my first meditation album Falling Into Zen – 10 Guided Meditations Under 10 Minutes (info about its availabilty will be on my website soon) I have had many conversations with people that yes, calming & empowering oneself with a healthy mind, body and soul connection can take mere minutes daily. Perhaps this is why my mantra popped up. When a thought like this calmly enters my mind, I don’t try to push is away. I realize it is surfacing as a gift and quietly explore the information it is trying to share with me.
This morning these words popped into my mind: It’s easy.
So I went with it…
It’s easy to be happy.
It’s easy to be healthy.
It’s easy to have a life I love.
It’s easy to be surrounded by love.
It’s easy to be filled with joy.
It’s easy to laugh a lot.
It’s easy to travel the world.
It’s easy to be filled with creative ideas.
It’s easy to have an incredible career I love.
It’s easy to attract fantastic people, companies and projects.
It’s easy to make lots of money.
It’s easy to make lots of money so I can help others.
It’s easy to create positive change on this planet.
It’s easy. Whatever I think, I can do. It’s easy. Whatever I think, I can create. It’s easy.
I am sure there were a few more in there but you get the idea. One “it’s easy” flowed easily into another…and then another… When we change our minds, we change our world. When we change our world, we can then change the world. Small steps can create big changes and what could be simpler than taking a couple minutes to explore the power of two small words?
