Five Ways to Create a Brief Daily Ritual
that Nurtures Your Dream
It's so exciting to be at this point in our journey together! Do you feel it, too?
You've identified & let go of old stories that no longer served you, begun to recognize the new story calling you, looked squarely at what holds you back and gets in your way, identified healing techniques & resources that can help you let go of resistance & self-sabotage and now it's time to find ways to nurture and summon the new story each day until it manifests and you are living it.
We're here at the end of our spiritual quest, which means we're ready to launch ourselves into our new stories.
How did it go yesterday? Were you able to think of some daily storybook practice ideas? If not, here are five possibilities to consider...
(1) Lighting a candle and making a wish for your life to change in all the wonderful ways it needs to in order for you to live in the story that’s calling you.
(2) Holding a crystal in your hand while you drink your tea or coffee and imagine some delightful aspect of the story you’re creating in your life.
(3) Journaling about the feelings that are coming up each day as you practice the new story by imagining it for a few minutes.
(4) Using healing techniques to conquer any remaining resistance and fear. Which could mean uncapping a bottle of essential oil to inhale a scent that will help you heal. Or adding an essential oil to your body wash and imagining that whatever has been getting in your way is now washing away down the drain.
(5) Doing a moon ritual after the kids are in bed or while your spouse is watching TV.
When your time is limited, be creative but not stingy.
Nurturing a dream takes time and lots of love. Bringing the new story to life is a sacred calling. Stay with it until you have a daily ritual that works for you.
By the way, we’ve been kinda sorta talking about the new story as the big dream you’re being called to bring to life. The one that’s waiting for you.
But if you’re still working on a smaller story right now, like how to feel better or how to finish the big project at work or how to get your teenager to talk to you, everything we’ve been doing will work for those stories, too.
You can create any story using the Storybook Process.
Your homework today: create the plan for your daily storybook practice & make sure it includes what you know you need.
Do you need help with creating the plan?
Brainstorming & troubleshooting for storybook solutions are both things I love to do.
How are you feeling as we approach this point in the process? Leave me a comment & let me know and then, come back tomorrow so we can celebrate some more.
Love to you!
