10 Rituals of Radiant Living

Without purpose the days would have ended... As those days used to end in disintegration. 

Why are you not taking some time every day for your personal rest break?  Taking the time to renew yourself is the most important thing you can do.

Self-improvement and personal enrichment will dramatically improve your effectiveness. Thirty days is all it takes.
If you are looking for magic formula to live radiating life, you are welcome. It's free and priceless. Take note, you must be disciplined and apply these strategies daily, with utter conviction in their values. 

Also note that, it is not a quick-fix kind of a deal.

Sit back and relax as you transform your life and help others do theirs by teaching and sharing these strategies with them.

1. Ritual of Solitude: This involves mandatory period of peace. It's like a pit-stop for the soul. It's purpose is self-renewal. Inner quietness bring with it a wealth of benefits including a deep sense of well-being, inner peace and boundless energy. Make a secret sanctuary for yourself where you will commune with nature.

 2. Ritual of Physicality: This is based on the principle that as you care for the body, you care for the mind. As you train your body, so you train your mind. Practice yoga to unblock your vitality. A little exercise per day will do wonders on your body.
"To breathe properly is to live properly." Breathe to thrive don't only do it to survive. Take more oxygen in to liberate your energy.

 3. Ritual of Live Nourishment: A poor diet has a pronounced effect on your health/life. As you nourish your body, so you nourish your mind. Poor diet drains your mental and physical energy. It hampers the clarity of your mind.
Eat live food to stay healthy. You are what you eat. Example of live food is vegetables. Live a life of moderation and do nothing to the extreme.

 4. Ritual of Abundant Knowlege: Expand your knowledge for your good and that of others around you. The old saying, knowledge is power is really old. Knowledge is but a potential power. For power to be manifested, it must be applied.
Most people know what they should do in any situation. The problem is that they don't take daily action to apply the knowledge and realize their dreams. Become a student of life. Use what you have learned in the classroom of your existence. Read regularly. Read for 30 minutes a day will do wonders for you. But, do not read just anything. Be selective of what you put into the lush garden of your mind. Book is best friend of the wise. Thirty minutes a day will make a delightful difference in your life. Whatever you desire in life, the answers are in print. There are books out there that will rocket you to your goals. Those who walked before us have provided solutions to them. Think and Grow rich is about abundance, including spiritual abundance, and how to attract all that is good into your life. You might do well to read it.
It is not what you will get out of books that is so enriching - it is what the books will get out of you that will ultimately change your life. Read and keep reading.

 5. Ritual of Personal Reflection: Taking time to know yourself. Power of inner contemplation. This is nothing more than the habit of thinking. Well, most of us do think. The thing is most people think to survive. Not thinking to thrive. Get into habit of personal introspection. Think about positive and negative things you have done during the day before you retire at night. Assess yourself. If they are positive habits, let them continue. If otherwise, get rid of them once and for all. You have the power to think good thoughts. By looking at what you are doing, how you are spending your day and the thoughts you are thinking, you give yourself a benchmark for measuring improvement. 
The only way to improve tomorrow is to know what you did wrong today.
There is nothing wrong with making mistakes. Mistakes are part of life.
Happiness comes through good judgment, good judgment comes through experience, and experience comes through bad judgment.

 6. Ritual of Early Awakening  
Train yourself for getting up early. Never forget that it is the quality and not the quantity of sleep that is important.

Note: 10-30 minutes before you sleep and 10-30 minutes period after  you wake up are profoundly influential on your subconscious mind. Only the most serene and inspiring thoughts should be programmed into your mind at those minutes.
The better the sleep, the less you will need. Don't forget the rule of twenty-one: if you do anything for twenty-one days in a row, it will be installed as a habit. 
There are many things to do. It will be better to get up early. Start your day off well.  Start your day on a delightful footing. When you are awake, get still and focused. Ask yourself, what would I do today if it were my last? Envision yourself doing great things.

 7. Ritual of Music 
 Spending little time a day listening to soft pieces on a cassette while driving to work. When you feel weary, play some music. It is  motivating.

 8. Ritual of the Spoken Word.
 Words effect the mind in a pronounced way. Whether written or spoken, they are powerful influences. What you say to others is important, even more than what you what you say to yourself.
You are what you say to yourself. It's like mantras - mind freeing. Mantras is a phrase designed to free your mind. Have a positive affirmation every day, every time. Cultivate the habit of positive mantras.
What you say to yourself, affect your Self-image and your Self-image determines the action you take. 

 9. Ritual of Congruent Character.
This requires your taking daily, incremental action to build your character. Strengthening your character affect the way you see yourself and the actions you take.
Let your actions be aligned with ; industry, compassion, humility, patience, honesty and courage.
Do the right things. Act in a way in Congruent with your character. Be guided by your heart.
As Emerson put it, Character is higher than intellect. A great soul will be strong to live as well as to think.

10. Ritual of Simplicity. 
This requires you to live a simple life. Never live in the thick of thin things. Focus only on your priorities, those activities that are meaningful.
Separate the wheat from the chaff. If you really want to be happy, reduce your needs.
Nothing to extremes, everything in moderation. 

Your life changes in the blink of an eye, the very moment you decide from the deepest core of your being that you will raise your life to its highest level.
Practice these things. I bet with you, in a month from now, you will see a remarkable improvement.

These strategies are not quick-fix kind as I said earlier. They are meant to be applied daily, for the rest of your days.
Try it and see!

The universe favors the brave. When you resolve to lift your life to its highest level, the strength of your soul will guide you to a magical place with magnificent treasures.
