Brahmacharya - Questions & Affirmations
Updated: Jul 26
Today I want to share with you some questions and Affirmations to allow for further inward reflection:
How do I know when I am close to burn out?
What do I need in this moment to feel balanced?
How can I practice greater self-control in my life?
What is the best use for my energy today?
Affirmations and Mantras are not one and the same and have wildly different origins and applications. I read recently that an affirmation is motivational whereas a Mantra is sacred. Affirmations are rather specific to assist in over-coming negative thoughts, feelings or emotions. Mantras on the other hand, are deeply rooted in the Yogic Philosophy. They are words, sounds or invocations that are repeated or chanted during Meditation. Then we have intentions, which are different again. An intention is a commitment to inspired action, and this is best explained by Candice Nikeia on her IGTV, and is linked to in the show notes of this episode. What I am going to share with your today are affirmations that you can take forward with you into your day:
I balance time and self-control with ease
Practicing moderation enhances my Prana
Deborah Adele describes Brahmacharya as …
“Having an awareness of sacredness in all our actions an an attentiveness to each moment that moves us into a stance of holiness - walking with God”
