For 30 minutes every morning, clear your mind and heal your soul, close your eyes…
In the name of God, the most gracious the most merciful.
Breathing in, I give everything- soul, mind, body, heart, life- to God.
Breathing out, I am the peace, light and love of God, and the powerful intelligent energy of the Universe.
I am the observer and witness of the present moment, which is my home and best friend.
I sit without expectations: I openly and lovingly welcome and embrace any thoughts, emotions, sensations, reactions or distractions to come and pass through me to reveal the layers to my soul.
Everything I will mention is worldly, but only my soul is eternal, so I take light and do everything with laughter because nothing is as serious as it seems.
I am rooted comfortably in the seat of presence, and observe my life as my art and masterpiece, my vacation and my adventure. I am not attached to the world.
I am not sad about the past or worried about the future, I simply stay centered and focus on the positive of what matters the most.
Each day I try my best in every way, and then I let go and let God and trust the Universe.
This is the only moment there ever is, and everything in this moment is exactly as it should be.
Breathing deeply in through my nose, and exhaling out through my mouth, I relax my entire body from head to toe.
I smile- with my eyes and lips, my heart and liver, my legs and whole body- I smile.
I close the mind door and open the heart window to be still and know, I Am.
