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 Niyamas – Svadhyaya / 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. Last time we practiced with studying sacred texts, we studied three passages from the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, where I draw inspiration for the Daily Yogi practices. My favorite was “Negative thoughts can be neutralized by positive thoughts”. Today we will examine three more thoughts on the power of our thoughts and positive thinking. Or, if you practice a religion, perhaps read a meaningful section of your traditional sacred texts.
BONUS DAILY MEDITATION CHALLENGE
We are in the middle of a bonus Daily Meditation Challenge for October! For Svadhyaya Day today, our meditation is a Positive Energy Guided Meditation.
Today’s Daily Yogi Practice is to reflect on the quotes on positivity. Or, feel free to reflect on quotes from your own religion’s sacred texts.
Today’s Quotes on the power of our thoughts
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.

Please comment and share your thoughts on the above quotes, or your own readings if you would like. Have you kept up with your journal, or are you making another entry with me for Svadhyaya Day? Always remember, be kind!

Thanks for the journal Recommendation I haven’t been very good about my journaling so I’ve decided to pick up a guided one. Hopefully this will help me get started and create a new habit. Things don’t change we change is so true, we are forever growing and you shouldn’t be the same as you were before.
Cool, let me know what you think! Actually also let me know which guided journal you pick please.. I started an e-journal but want to try another guided one!
