21 Days Peaceful Ways Gentle Journey – Day 16

Good morning,

Today is Day 16 of the 21 Days Gentle Journey.

Today I invite you to reflect about death, not the physical, but the death of an old life that has played itself out and has no reason for existing anymore.

Think about this kind of death as the prerequisite for change, transformation, resurrection, rebirth.


No death, no change. No death, no transformation. No death, no life.


Maybe you have been clinging to an old life that has played itself out. Well, maybe the time has come to let it go. Let go of the things that have been holding you back, and go follow your bliss. Go do that thing that you know you cannot not do. Trust the impetus inside you. Heed the calling. Have the courage to do what you are being called to do in spite of fear of failure, fear of criticism, fear of being rejected, and all other fears. Accept the opportunity to be born again in a new life, a life you love.

Just do it!

In the end, when you will look back at your life, what you will regret most is not having answered the calls of life. In the end you will regret not having taken the risks to live the life you were called to live.

I again invite you to visit that sacred place deep inside yourself, that place of quiet and stillness, that place of silence and rest, and listen what the Universe wants from you and has reserved for you.



Now, let’s start this day with gentleness, gratitude, a disposition to release what is holding us back, and a commitment to allow our highest selves to come to light, just as we did yesterday. Let us make of this a healthy habit.

So here are some affirmations for today, but before reciting them, you know what to do: sit down, close your eyes for a few moments, breathe in and out gently, and go to the center of your being. Once you experience that soothing peace within, say to yourself with conviction and firm commitment:

  • Just for today, I will listen to the voice of the Universe and pay attention to what it is telling me to do.
  • Just for today, I will heed the calling.
  • … and I will do all this while being extremely gentle with myself.

Enjoy your gentle journey along peaceful ways!


We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. ~ Aristotle

Life is really simple. Why do we insist in complicating it?
