Sunday, June 14

Today is Sunday, June 14, 2020. The squirrels jump from tree to tree exploring the fresh leaves.

Connecting with each other around the world, moments of reflection can allow us to recognize and share in the love and kindness around us.  We share these daily anchoring messages across the globe to offer a simple routine that can be used to center us in order to create a better future for all.

Today’s Inspiration: A Quote from Albert Einstein

“Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.”

Here’s what you can do today, right now, during transitions, after absorbing the news or when going to sleep:  

  • Straighten your spine. Roll your shoulders back and down, smile to yourself, & relax your jaw.
  • Take slow deep belly breaths, allowing your stomach to rise with each breath in and relax with each breath out. You may find that each breath gets better and better. Allow your shoulders to relax on each exhale.
  • See the big picture.
    1. Move to a window or place you can see as far away as possible. Focus your eyes far away.
    2. Notice the details in your view. Notice what is moving and what is still.
    3. Look for all the green. Then look for all the blue. Look at each color in turn.

Anchor yourself when you repeat:    

“I am [*Name*]. I am doing what I can to be helpful. I love myself because I have kindness and love in my heart and soul. I am part of the global community and we are working together towards solutions. We can do this. As I think about those I love and care for, I send loving kindness out to all people.”

With gratitude and appreciation for all beings,
