Giving You My Mind, One Piece at a Time

On the Right Track?

Last night, my sleep was more “normal” than it has been for a while. It just doesn’t seem to work if I stay up until 10 p.m. If I do that, when I wake up at 2 a.m. for my mid-sleep bio break, I can’t go back to sleep and I’m up until mid-day some time.

However, if I go to bed at 8 p.m., when I wake up at midnight, I can usually putter around on the computer for a while and then fall asleep and sleep until 6-7 a.m. Go me. Here’s to not being sleep-deprived for a change.

It might also have to do with getting rid of the pressure of the eCourseGames. I used to think of myself as someone who thrived under pressure, but my increasing level of understanding the cosmos tells me that’s what contributed to my body’s poor health.

I’ve started meditating again in a more serious way. I’ve dabbled a lot with meditation over the years, but I’ve never had what I would term a “serious practice.” For one thing, even when I did it daily, I didn’t do it long enough. The recommendation that I’m following now is for 20 minutes, 2x a day. In addition to the core 20 minutes, there are sutras to do daily at the end of one of your sessions. There are seven different sutras, one for each day of the week.

All of this is aimed at bringing my body back into balance. I can tell that it is working, and I also expect to have some “bad days” as various toxins are being released. I’m also changing how I hydrate, doing the boiling hot water sips every 30 minutes for the first 5 hours that I am awake (about 20 ounces. The quantity is not as important as the regularity/heat.

Transfer calls occurred last night, I’ll have to see what the missionary status will be for Ash Flat today. Hopefully I’ll get some boys this time around. Other than that, it’s sure to be a lazy, rainy Sunday, with an anticipated high of 78 degrees, this low this morning was 58. I think Spring may finally be here, but I’ll let ya’ll know if the lows dip back below freezing again.

Time to get my day started in earnest. May you love the life you create for yourself. Namaste & ciao for now.
