Day 8: 10 Day Challenge - How to Embody more Delight

So how would life be different if you felt more delight? How would you respond to things? How would work be different? Where would you find pleasure that previously you had not? How would this affect your relationships? Your family?

So how was yesterday? How was it to focus on experiencing feeling inspired? What did you observe and what can you take forward into today?

Today we are going to focus on delight

So decide where you are going to do this and whether you will stand, sit or walk.

As usual I want you pay attention to your body in response to the following questions. Notice which questions work for you, and which are more of a challenge? Maybe some of the questions that initially didn’t work for you are starting to give you new insights. Remember, this is about finding your magic recipe to embody your emotions more effectively, and more emotions will bring more energy and more energy will allow you to make different choices and take different actions.

Focus on a situation in your life when you felt delight, or something that you know brings this emotion up in you. Focus on how delight feels in your body.

Observe what happens in your body when you do this.

Observe your breath pattern. Is it shallow, deep, fast or slow? Is it changing as you focus on being delight?

Observe the energy in your body. Does it move up your body or down? Do you feel yourself contract or expand? Are you aware of energy at all? What changes as you focus on feeling and embodying delight? Do you have more or less energy?

Is there a place in your body you associate with delight? If so, focus on it and observe what changes.

Do you need to move to feel delight in your body? How do you need to move? Move and observe what happens. Is there a movement than increases your ability to feel delight? Try a few out.

How does focusing on delight affect your posture? Does changing your posture increase or decrease your experience of being delight? Do you have a “delight” posture?

Do you experience delight as something that comes from deep inside of you and expands out? Or is it something that you feel coming into your body (not from someone or something else, just coming in)?

When you focus on delight notice how your facial expressions change? Do you want to make a sound? Are new behaviours showing up? Do you smile or move differently?

What do you become aware of?

As your day progresses, look for opportunities to feel delight. If someone gives you a gift, is delight something you could chose to feel? If someone challenges you, you could be angry or you could choose delight and see what happens. Can you find delight in your spouse or significant other? Could you find delight simply in being alive?

Have a great day and please share your experiences and questions on our facebook page.
