All too often we start the day not fully awake – half in yesterday and half in tomorrow. Wherever your thoughts are – your attention is. Wherever your attention is – your energy is. So – if you are partially in yesterday (the past) and partially in tomorrow (the future) – your energy is not in the now – now fully in your body – here and now.
It is really that simple – that’s why it is so important to start each day “assembling” yourself – calling your thoughts, your awareness and your energy into the now – the present moment.
My personal guide to this powerful practice is nature itself – the rising sun and mother earth demonstrate this energy shift every single morning for us. The sun never fails to rise, shining its radiant, powerful energy on our planet every morning – waking up all that is life on this planet. As often as I can I meet the rising sun on the beach, to connect with this amazing moment – an energy shift – and come fully into the new day.
When it isn’t possible to meet dawn on the beach I use my imagination to give myself this experience and let my body have the energy of it. Our bodies truly understand the consciousness of imagination. Your body really receives the pictures that your conscious and motivated imagination sends it. Here is a track I recorded for myself, and anyone else who’d like to experience the power of the rising sun from wherever they are. It takes only 20 minutes.
Hope you enjoy it – it helps me to start my day “freshly” and in the present moment.
Have a great, peaceful, joyous and powerful day.
My best wishes,
Sabrina Siobhan Rohbock
