Quiet Sundays! ~ Finding Focus

Quiet Sundays….Finding Focus

Good Morning!! Today is Sunday… my quiet day.. or atleast it is supposed to be quiet. But with children… it doesn’t work that way all of the time!

Most Sundays, I get up around 7am (while everyone is still asleep) Light my Majestique Candle… (Vineyard Seascape, Total Spa or Grapefruit Splash are my favorites from ) Shower (peacefully), dress in a light flowing and loose fitting garment and just sit still.. meditate… breathe. Take in all of the beautiful energy of a Sunday morning.. rain or shine. I do a breathing exercise that calms, centers and energizes.

Sitting still- back straight, seated on the floor or chair (indoors or out)

Take deep breath in for 4 counts, Hold for 4 counts, exhale for 4 counts and hold for 4 counts.

Repeat as many times as needed.

While doing this exercise….when inhaling… try to inhale positive thoughts…positive energy… positive images… positive feelings.. The Spirit of GOD.

When exhaling… exhale all of the negative…energy, thoughts, feelings and images…..(that other dude that attacks daily)

Believe it or not… it works. It helps me be able to clear my mind and relax…allowing me to think “lightly” about my week ahead. A nice cup of Tea always helps… (I recommend a blend from )

If you don’t already have a Quiet Sunday routine.. try it out, and tell me how you feel afterwards.

PEACE!!! & Blessings!

Ms. Majestique

Thanks for posting. I will be trying this out very soon. My weeks are so stressful...and with school starting back up in a few weeks, I'm dreading the added rush and stress to the week. I have a husband and two teen boys...and I never can seem to carve out time for me! I also checked out the sun salutation.....I'm thinking I can do it..but once I get down, I may not want to get back up! :-) Thanks again for all of your posts...they are quite interesting, fun and a lot of great info!

With all the stress caused by the hustle and bustle of every day life, we need to find quiet time to relax.

I believe if we all did, this world would be a lot better.
