Today…

This is a simple yet profound Practice that follows the Seishindo principles of Absorption, Utilization, and Balance.

  • Absorb your challenge as you breathe it in and think about it.
  • Utilize the energy that your challenge generates in you. The more important or seemingly difficult your challenge, the more your system will be energized.
  • Remain emotionally balanced and look at all the sides and possibilities of your challenge.

Instead of being fearful and limiting what you are capable of by only dwelling on the negative side of a particular situation or relationship, this Practice invites you to explore all sides of your challenge in a balanced manner, making the possibility of success more likely.

As always the key here is to take your time, speak slowly, breathe deeply, and pause between sentences.
Keep each sentence short and concise. This is important. Long sentences lead to sloppy thinking and getting lost.

You are to speak each sentence out loud if you are in a space that allows for this.
It can often be helpful to repeat this process for several rounds, letting your words change as you go along.
