am the most generous to myself when I focus on areas in my life
and nurture my spirit’s walk on the earth.
The room we
sleep in is especially important for our well-being because it is where we visit
the world of dreams. We are in our bedroom for over a third of our life. It is
where we are most open and unguarded.
our bedroom look like? Are the colors pleasing? Is it cluttered or orderly? Is a
television going non-stop? Is our bed comfortable? Are there pictures and
special objects that make us happy? Does the room feel like a sanctuary, or is
it just like any other room?
What do we
think about before drifting off to sleep? If we have watched the late news, we
will probably carry into our sleep images of violence and unhappiness. If we
have been on the telephone with a friend who is upset, their feelings will
impact our sleep.
Here are some ideas to try before
going to bed:
• Unplug the
telephone in your bedroom.
• Read an elevating book that releases the worries of the day.
• Drink a cup of chamomile tea or place a touch of lavender on
your wrist to relax.
• Breathe into your body calm, quiet energy, and breathe out the
stress of the day.
• Visualize calm and peaceful energy flowing into an opening at
the top of your
head and slowly moving throughout your entire body.
Become mindful of things that create
a gentle night’s sleep for you.
Honor your bedroom and your sleep, and your life will be more peaceful and
