I want to share a powerful grounding exercise that is useful before going into a situation where you want to be your best or that might be challenging. It is an adaptation of the Navajo "Beauty Before Me" prayer.
Choose 1-5 qualities you want to invite. To experience this now – choose qualities that will serve you in this moment. A quality might be integrity or playfulness or courage or respect or…..whatever you need to invite in.
The grounding will walk you though putting the qualities chosen behind you, in front of you, to the left, the right, above, below, within and all around.
Before beginning, get a "feel" for each quality. Imagine the energy of it, feel it in your body, give it a color or texture or sound - whatever works for you to bring it alive.
As you read this – insert your chosen qualities in the space provided – feeling the energy of the statement and envisioning the quality present and powerful.
I place the quality of…….. behind me
I place the quality of…….. before me
I place the quality of…….. to the left of me
I place the quality of…….. to the right of me
I place the quality of…….. above me
I place the quality of…….. below me
I place the quality of…….. within me
I place the quality of…….. all around me
Now, take this power into your day!
