Yesterday afternoon I created a morning ritual which allowed me to begin practicing today.
I play a meditative music (Today: Kindred Spirit by Deuter)
I light an incense as an offering.
I light a candle.
I burn a palo santo incense.
I do a sun salutation pose and thank the universe for giving me another day.
I sit and close my eyes.
I do a mindful breathing. I thank my body.
I open my eyes, and I watch the smoke coming from the incense. It’s so beautiful. It is magical.
And I felt compassion for myself. For every inch of my body.
