My days used to feel like tiny grains of moments that would slip right through my fingers.
Until I learned how to re-experience each and every moment of my day through one of my favorite nightly rituals…
a meditation that I do while I put my one year old to sleep.
This used to be an independent activity until last year when my son was born which made any alone time very difficult. So, I’ve adapted this ritual by doing it while cuddling with him in bed.
Here’s how it goes:
I close my eyes and literally go through my day backwards - from the last thing I did that day to the first thing I did when I awoke.
I remember when I first started practicing this mediation, it was pretty hard to do as it required a whole different type of focus and awareness. I had to work on strengthening this inner muscle and now it’s become quite natural.
Whenever I finish this mediation, I feel slightly lighter and happier. Instead of defaulting to thinking only about all the undone or negative things in my day, I am able to see the good - the hugs my kids and I shared, the tea I was able to drink… My heart becomes filled with such tiny joys of gratitude for my day that would have probably gone unnoticed otherwise.
For instance, last night I didn’t get to do a lot of things I had intended on doing, but during my bedtime meditation I re-experienced the twinkle in my son’s eyes and our belly laughs at the beach… magic ✨
Every night I feel blessed to be able to hold on to these tiny grains of moments - not letting them slip away.
I hope you try it and cherish it 💕
