Practicing purposefulness, leveled-up
There are a variety of personal meditative practices. Perhaps you use Reiki, shamanic journeying, breathwork, Tarot or oracle cards. Maybe you use daily devotionals, pray, walk in nature, practice gratitude, save a chair for your Guardian Angel.
Although I have had some sort of connecting practice for as long as I can remember, I recently am also exploring Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR).
(I had gotten rather sloppy in my attentiveness, and this organized option is well-timed for me.)
Yet as I move further through this mindfulness experience, I notice something amazing: my idle speed has become reset.
I went downstairs to move clothes from the washer into the dryer, and I realized I was floating. Not marching, pacing. treading. or traipsing.
And yet, still moving.
I felt the difference between moving with purpose, and moving on purpose.
You still get where you are going. There’s just so much more ease and joy in the Now.
I have always been responsible and purposeful: now I am becoming response-able and on purpose.
A deep shift has already permeated my daily flow. I’m just catching up with it in my awareness.
Where in your life can you start to practice being more On Purpose? While vacuuming the floors? During habitual drives? In conversation with loved ones? When preparing food? Pick one that is already going well for you, to start with. Conversely, choose one that currently bites, and watch it improve.
