Productive time choices and positive energy are so much easier to access when you are feeling grounded, fresh and revitalized! And the good news is that you hold the power, when it comes to the quality of your energy. It’s right there in your hands, and it’s a lot easier than you might think.
Want to cultivate an inner sanctuary to generate more personal power? Read on – I’ve got 3 Time Tips that will get you there.
But first, what do I mean by Power Sanctuary?
It’s an inner haven that I’ve created and outfitted for myself … and I can travel to it whenever I choose to – even at a moment's notice. You can give yourself the exact same gift, by creating your very own.
What’s your Power Sanctuary for?
You use it to renew yourself and give yourself the time and space to see what’s going on around you more clearly. When you go into your Power Sanctuary you give yourself a place to recharge your vitality and develop quiet confidence. Here your heart speaks its deepest wisdom, and you have the quiet to drink it in.
Can you just see how very refreshing and validating this is, as you relax, accept yourself, and honor your uniqueness? You build a trusted track record of loyalty and connection to yourself. This, in turn, feeds your courage and illuminates new potentials.
And no matter how much time you spend there, you emerge from your sanctuary with renewed ease and decisiveness.
I like to consider this kind of revitalization as a personal responsibility … or an essential indulgence. When you create (and visit) this wellspring of rejuvenation for yourself, you can draw on it throughout your day. You'll stay much more focused, optimistic, centered and productive.
Here are 3 simple tips to get you started on creating your own Power Sanctuary:
1. Tune into your unique ideal environment with exquisite focus.
Envision what a mini power sanctuary would look like and feel like to you... soften, and breathe in clear, calm energy. Immerse yourself in the pleasure of it... the swirl of colors, fragrances, and sounds.
2. Assemble touchstones to help guide you within.
Use your touchstones to evoke your inner hideaway in the midst of a busy day. If a recorded visualization helps you travel inward, keep it available. But it doesn’t even have to be that elaborate. Simple things, like a tune you can hum, a poem, or a stone you hold in your pocket that travels with you everywhere, can open a peaceful path to your center, too. The key is to find, and use, whatever works for you. Let it change over time, too, as your Power Sanctuary evolves.
3. Patiently travel to your haven as often as you can.
This takes discipline – and just remember, it always gives you power. You might start by setting aside ten to fifteen undisturbed minutes daily. Ideally, especially when you are getting started, do this the same time in the same place each day. Over time, you’ll establish an internal rhythm that your body will get used to and will rise to meet. Then, as you become more practiced, you’ll be able to recreate this sanctuary on the spot, anywhere.
If you've found it relaxing and rejuvenating simply to read about this, imagine how you can flourish by making it a regular part of your life! When you enrich yourself in this way, you align yourself and your time choices with your deepest values. And the more you practice this, the more inspired you will be to continue this exercise in mindfulness as you celebrate your power and your potential year-round!
