How did you start the new year? I’m quite fed up with the same stories every single year, be it in magazines or online: how to set goals or new years resolutions, tons of stuff how to loose weight and and and. On the other hand, I like this ending of a circle to think about what I want to focus on. Which is usually rather subtle than tangible.
I like to create a mantra, which I recite whenever I can think of it. I use this mantra as long as it’s not fully absorbed and integrated, which isn’t a matter of days or weeks, but months or even all year. Through this mantra, everything changes the moment I repeat it mentally. My feelings, my body, my thoughts, my view of the world.
Before I start practicing and before chanting the opening prayer, I connect with myself and say my mantra, silently. A beautiful moment, a great way to start the practice.
