Summer is a busy time for us here on our little homestead. No matter how chaotic things seem, though, I make it a priority to stop and center myself as often as possible, even if it only happens while I'm washing dishes or folding laundry ~ deep breathing, making a mental gratitude list, eating real foods and pausing for two seconds before responding to others are just a few ways to live consciously in a hectic modern life.
I was recently inspired by some intuitive guidance that was given to me during meditation:
"When you find sacredness in each breath,
embody mindfulness in each action
and choose love in each expression,
you become your own temple,
and life itself becomes your religion."
