For some reason when I got up to clean my teeth this morning I decided to use my brush in my left hand (I am right handed). It felt so unusual! It got me thinking about many things including how many days it work take for it to feel regular for me to clean my teeth this way? An experiment is underway and I will report the results!
In meditation this morning sitting in the following pose…
Sukhasana: Easy Pose
…I decided to cross my left ankle over my right ankle instead of putting them the other way around. Also, feels extremely unusual!
I continued this theme throughout my day and now wonder about the power of habits and how many days they really take to break? Some people say 21, others say 40. Maybe it depends how long you have been in a particular pattern? Maybe it depends on how open the heart is to transformation?
My heart is wide open. Not just to changing my tooth brush hand!
