InnerSelf's Daily Inspiration

August 31, 2023

The focus for today is:

I keep my energy field clear with daily mindful rituals.

Today's inspiration was written by Mara Branscombe:

Committing to daily mindful and soulful rituals is essential in order to keep your energy field clear. A daily mindful ritual could be as simple as lighting a candle first thing in the morning, writing down your gratitudes, or walking quietly and intentionally in nature.

Think of it as filling up your inner temple with goodness. It’s a way to check in and perhaps understand what energy you might be holding on to, what thoughts might be ruling you, or where you may be playing the victim. 

If you consciously “check-in” like this every day you will begin to form an intimate relationship with your inner being, your essential higher self.

Today's inspiration was adapted from the article:
     Clearing Your Energy Field: The Path of the Modern Mystic
     Written by Mara Branscombe.

This is Marie T. Russell, publisher of, wishing you a day of keeping your energy field clear (today and every day)

Comment from Marie:
 Having a daily ritual doesn't necessarily mean doing the same thing everyday. For example, some days my ritual is peacefully working in the garden, other days it is mindfully doing my morning stretches and exercises, or it could even be just choosing to spend a quiet 5 minutes focusing on my breath. Simply taking time to be quiet with yourself is the ritual and can take place in a variety of ways. 

Our focus for today: I keep my energy field clear with daily mindful rituals.
