In last week's blog, I talked about daily practice. One of my favourite everyday practices guaranteed to make you feel more connected to life is the Golden thread 7-day challenge.
I've called it a challenge, but it really is a walk in the park! Or on the beach or wherever else you can take a daily walk! Because the 7-day Golden thread challenge is just that. A daily walk. This walk is somewhat unique, though.
You will walk the same route every day at the same time for seven days. During this walk, you will weave a beautiful golden thread of energy. It doesn't matter what time you walk or how far. A short walk can be just as effective as a long one. You will need to begin and end your walk at the same point, though.
How to weave this golden thread?
Before beginning your walk, you will spend a few moments connecting to the Earth. You will imagine a golden thread emerging from your heart that weaves deep down into the sand, soil, or pavement. Imagine this thread making its way to the Earth's center through rock, water, and crystal. Deep down in the centre of Gaia. Take some moments to just breathe, and allow this golden thread to embed deeply. Then as you walk, imagine that this thread slowly unwinds from your start point, following you on your walk. Return to the spot where you began, and in your imagination, tie off this thread. Spend a few minutes on your return, journalling anything of note you saw on your walk.
The next day at the same time, do exactly the same. The challenge is to do this for seven days. By the end of the seven days, you will have woven a beautiful golden twine connecting you to the Earth.
I can guarantee you will feel:
More positive about life
Synchronicities will begin to show up in your life, and you will start to feel a sense of magic about where you live.
Don't forget to come over to the Facebook page where I will post this blog and tell everyone about your experiences. As proof of the magic of this experience, while I was writing the blog today, these two parrots sat outside my window, being super cheeky. I love it when nature provides these types of confirmation to my life.
So if you want to feel more connected in just 7 days? More positive and more creative. Living a life full of magic and synchronicity? Then the 7-day Golden thread challenge is a perfect way to begin.
We all need some magic in our lives, particularly at this time. And for me, the most magical experiences are always connected to nature. Whether it's a walk on the beach joined by dolphins or other marine life. A walk through the woods in the company of birds. Or a walk in my neighbourhood, where somehow treasure always appears. This particular practice never lets me down. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do, and I can't wait to hear how it goes for you. Please share your pictures and comments.
