Quote of the Day: Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.  ~ Marcel Proust

Essential Element: In our unnatural, modern and mechanized lives we have become dangerously independent. We must seek opportunities to fulfill our innate need  for connection. [click here to read Spark Insight: Connection]

Journal:  Many of us would not be the people we are today without some significant others in our lives – and not just our spouses. Teachers, mentors, siblings, friends – influences that have directly shaped our lives. Complete this statement in your journal: I would not be as  __________ (fill in the blank with a trait you’ve acquired over time – * i.e. motivated, patient, caring, focused, fit) ….if it weren’t for _________ (fill in the blank with the name of the person who has helped shape this in you).  What a gift to have even one of these ‘charming gardners’ to thank! [Click here for additional Journal exercises]

SPARK  ~  Thought of the Day:

Essential Element: Practice an eFast (no electronics) 30 minutes before bed – in fact, keep the TV, Blackberry and computer out of the bedroom all together. Journal, pray or visualize a better tomorrow and be grateful for today. [click here to read Spark Insight: Restorative Sleep]

Journal: What does the last half hour of your day look like? What do you usually read/watch/do? Whom do you talk to? What do you prep for the coming day? Our bodies thrive on rhythms.  Use your journal to visualize your ideal ‘last half hour’– one clear of electronic input and founded on body-calming, brain resting practices.  Choose three nights this week and put it to practice. [Click here for additional Journal exercises]
