This is lesson 16 in the series "Conquering Codependency - Loving Without Leaning" looking at aspects of codependency from a spiritual point of view. Each of the 48 lessons includes a prayer or meditation.
We know we are being true to ourselves and centered if our body feels relaxed and our mind is peaceful.
If we feel agitation in our body or mind we can use mental and bodily relaxation techniques such as meditation, regulated breathing and rhythmic walking to regain our center of balance.
Reflect on causes of any unrest, consider and plan how to make changes to regain peace.
When we’re centered our body feels energized, healthy and our mind is calm, clear, and full of inspiration with the outlook that will serve the common good.
As positive thoughts return positive results; positive actions return positive reactions.
When we stay centered or regain our center through the techniques above we have less need to depend on others in our decision making.
Staying Centered Prayer
“Dear Lord, may I remember
By holding positive thoughts
I receive positive results
Today and everyday to come.
And the answers I seek
Are within my deep center
Always in reach.”
