Day 15 of Meditate 22 days of self discovery.
Embrace joy! Sometimes we tend to get in our own way. Our experiences and responses lead to tendencies and habits that become ingrained in us. These habits can limit us and keep us from experiencing true self love and awareness. Becoming mindful throughout your day will open your eyes to your habits. As you notice consider whether it is nourishing your true self.
KLESHA : Slef imposed limitations we place on ourselves that lead to tendencies and habits that become ingrained. Keeping us from experiencing life fully and knowing our true self. Cause of all pain and suffering.
  1. Avidya : Misconception / Ignorance
  2. Asmita : Identity
  3. Raga : Desire
  4. Dvesha : Avoidance
  5. Abhinivesha : Fear
Today’s Suggestions for Ritual :
  • Crystal – Ametrine combines the peacefulness of amethyst with the joyfulness of citrine. This harmonious blend of these two incredible crystals brings balance to our spiritual and mental selves and our feminine and masculine energies. It promotes mental clarity and optimism, thereby sparking positive change in our lives. It brings insight into the cause of issues as well as the motivation to make changes.
  • Essential oil – Wild Orange
  • Make a gratitude list
send love from my heart,





Set aside 5-10 minutes to journal.
  • Are you attached to any habit?
  • Is there a habit you wish to break?
  • Is there a habit you wish to start? What would your day look like with this habit in place? How can you support your new ritual?
To practice Breath of Joy, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and parallel, knees slightly bent.
  1. Inhale one-third of your lung capacity and swing your arms up in front of your body, bringing them parallel to each other at shoulder level, with palms facing the ceiling.
  2. Continue inhaling to two-thirds capacity and stretch your arms out to the side like wings to shoulder level.
  3. Inhale to full capacity and swing your arms parallel and over your head, palms facing each other.
  4. Open your mouth and exhale completely with an audible ha, bending the knees more deeply as you sink into a standing squat and swing your arms down and back behind you like a diver.
Repeat up to nine times. Don’t force or strain the body or breath; simply be absorbed by the peacefully stimulating rhythm. Return to standing. Close your eyes and experience the effects. Notice how quickly your heart beats; feel the sensations in your face and arms, and the tingling in the palms of your hands.
