Daily Practice:

Honoring the Familiar

There is nothing normal about now.

Priorities have shifted, ideas uprooted, foundations rocked.

There is so much uncertainty as we reorient ourselves

to whatever we can to feel centered again.

 

I invite you to engage with the unknown by honoring the familiar.

 

A daily practice is simply that—honoring a moment of your day with energy

and intention. It doesn’t have to be anything extraordinary—

bless your bathwater, sing over your tea, breathe with intention

or move your body with love.

 

Whatever it is, take a moment to recognize it as part of your practice; part of your healing; part of your willingness to lean into what’s present and bless the moment with your awareness.

Check back from time to time, where I'll be posting

new tips, tools and practices to help you stay motivated.

I hope you'll join me!

 

A few tips to get you started...

First of all, give your practice a little direction. Ask yourself daily: What is it that you need today, darling? Maybe it’s strength, support, tenderness or self-care. It might change daily, or stay steady day after day; whatever it is, bring it into focus as the center of your practice.

Second, intention is everything. Truly, the practice itself doesn’t matter so much as the fact that you’ve set it apart and sanctified it as a sacred part of your day. It could be something that you do each day, like shower or make tea, but when you set it apart and bless the act, it comes alive with potency and energetic influence.

Third, make it easy. If it’s too hard, it's harder to commit to it, so trust how you feel and how much time and energy you have to dedicate to it, and then go from there. If you’re pressed for time, simply turn an everyday routine into a daily practice—all you need is a little direction fueled by intention and you’re good to go.

Lastly, hold yourself accountable. I’ll be honest, it’s why I decided to share this idea in the first place. I needed to hold myself accountable to my daily practices because I know that I’m heading into a long winter at the tail end of a very long and difficult year, and I’m going to need support to get through it. Let me hold you accountable, and you can do the same for me. I’ll support you by sharing everything I can about daily practice…I’ll be sharing guided meditations, practices, and rituals here on my site, as well as simple examples of what I’m doing on social media. You can engage a little, or a lot. Either way, I’m here—full of love and hope that we can get through this together.
