With the ebbs and flows of life, there are times when we feel overwhelmed and perhaps even a little out of touch. This could be in a big way or small way, and can last a few moments or much longer. Being truthful with ourselves about what we are feeling and what we truly need in order to right our internal vibrations is of the utmost importance. This is especially true around the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Taking a moment to look inward in order to make the right choices will serve us well and allow us to give goodness to those around us.
As human beings, we have the power to choose. Some decisions are BIG and some are small, but they are all important. We are constantly making choices, even when we are not aware of it. The more present we are, the more likely we are to make “good choices,” choices that are in alignment with our highest good. When we listen to our intuition, we make choices from a place of love.
When we listen to our ego, we often make choices from a place of fear. Choices made from a place of loving presence will always bring us joy, wisdom, healing, abundance, connection, fulfilment and love. Meditation and mindfulness practices help us to be more present and more aware of our intuition.
From feeling powerless to embracing our choices
There are times in life when we believe we do not have a choice, when we feel powerless or victimized. We may not have chosen this specific situation but we can always choose how we relate to it. We become empowered when we become aware that we sometimes choose to feel powerless, or choose to be angry, or we choose to be sad about something. If there is a situation in your life that is not enjoyable, do you choose to be in it? Are you really stuck or do you choose to feel stuck? Do you choose to do what you do for a living? Do you chose to be where you are right now? Owning your choices brings back your power!
Through meditation, we can tune into these feelings, acknowledge and accept them, then choose to relate to them differently. Tea meditations can make it easier to return to the place of loving presence throughout the day, which increases the probability that the choices you make are aligned with your true desires.
The intention for this tea meditation is to tap into this power of choice so that you make healthy choices all day long.
A meditation embracing the power of choice
To practice this meditation, you may choose to say something like, “even though I feel anxious right now, I still love and appreciate myself.” In every moment you can choose acceptance, compassion and love.
- Choose a tea or warm beverage that will feel best in you body right now. Are you drinking this beverage just because it’s what you drink every morning or is this really what you want to put in you body?
- Choose a comfortable pose in which to sit and drink you tea.
- Take five deep breaths with you eyes closed.
