Best Moments of 2019by Teri Jo Wheeler on 12/05/19
~ Aloha ~
I returned yesterday from a fabulous 6 day trip to Kauai, Hawaii.
What a blessing it was spending time with my dear friend Bria
and witnessing luscious Mother Nature in all her Glory!
In honor of this trip, and with the end of the year (and decade)
fast approaching, I want to share a nourishing practice
I do called the 'BEST MOMENTS PRAYER.'
I search my heart for the BEST MOMENTS of a special trip or time,
and jot these down to recall the high vibe of each moment
whenever I need a reminder of how truly blessed I am.
A best moment is when we remember and feel fully alive,
experiencing a sense of reverence, gratitude, wow or wonder.
The experience doesn't need to be grandiose or eventful.
It can be simple. We are present, awake and aware.
In recalling the specific moment, we bring forward the sensations
we experienced, which can bring us into a higher state.
