Svadhyaya – Self-Study – Day 4 – 2021

Happy Meditation March 25, 2021 – Svadhyaya (Self-Study)

Good Morning Yogis! We are continuing on with weaving practice of each of the Niyamas into our day. Last time we practiced the fourth of the NiyamasSvadhyaya or self-study by beginning a journal if we had not kept one. Today we will focus on the other Svadhyaya practice of studying sacred texts. One of my favorite quotes from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, where I draw inspiration for the Daily Yogi practices, is “Negative thoughts can be neutralized by positive thoughts”. Today we will revisit the power of positive thinking with a meditation on positive thinking, and a quote from Buddha

Bonus Daily Meditation Challenge

We are in the middle of a bonus Daily Meditation Challenge for March! For Svadhyaya Day today, our meditation is a Positive Energy Guided Meditation.

Today’s Positive Practice suggestion

Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to reflect on the today’s quote on positive thinking. Or, feel free to reflect on quotes from your own religion’s sacred texts.

Today’s Quote on the power of our thoughts

Journal Day

Also, this is a good time to make another journal entry if you have not kept up with this new practice! I do not typically make a personal reflective journal entry every day, but I am pleased to be reminded to keep up with this on Svadhyaya days. If you are not sure what to write about, perhaps journal about your thoughts on any quotes from any sacred texts, or your Yogi journey so far.
