As we approach the equinox, let’s take a moment to think about what that means. This is the time when there is balance between day and night, darkness and light.
Finding balance in life is beneficial to your overall well-being. But it’s not always easy to find. We have many responsibilities to juggle. There are different people and perspectives that we interact with. Sometimes, so much information comes at you that you feel unbalanced. Overwhelmed.
How can you regain balance in your own life? In yourself? What sort of balance do you seek? Is it balance between work and play? Between self-care and taking care of others? Between temperance and indulgence? Is it a healthy balance between the divine feminine and divine masculine sides of you?
Let’s take a few moments to seek our inner balance.
It’s wonderful to set up a calm, relaxing environment in which to meditate. But life isn’t always calm and relaxing. Life can be messy. In my newest meditation, we’ll explore meditation in less-than-ideal conditions. You can find it here or on iTunes. Have fun with this one!
We all have access to our own inherent guidance. But life can get so busy, it’s sometimes hard to hear your inner voice. My newest meditation can help you settle into your own energy, release your internal chatter, and tune in to your self-guidance system.
You can listen to this meditation here or on iTunes. What is your internal guidance telling you?
My newest meditation is about recalling that which you wish to explore.
This process can help you begin to recover lost memories, conversations, events… the things that you’d like to recall. However, make sure to set the boundary that you will only recall that which serves, supports, and aligns with your highest good.
You can find this meditation here or on iTunes. Enjoy the exploration!
Hello, my friends! It’s been a long time since I’ve posted here. Interestingly, downloads of my meditations have been far higher this month (June 2022) than in over a year. So it would appear that, these days, more people are feeling in need of meditation and relaxation. Today, I woke up with a clear directive to record a new meditation for you.
Have you noticed that the Schumann Resonance has been wild lately? I don’t know if this is prompting people’s search for meditations and/or my sudden urge to record one, but it certainly feels like a contributing factor.
My new meditation can help you feel your connection to the Earth, the Creator, your Highest Self, and your loved ones in spirit. You can find it here or on iTunes. Peace be with you, my friends, as the waves of energy buoy us.
There’s no denying that COVID-19 is something to take seriously. But instead of letting it divide us, making us fight over toilet paper, let’s allow it to bring us together. Okay, maybe not physically together, depending on the social distancing guidelines in your area. But we can let this situation be a common ground on which we humans relate to each other with respect and compassion.
Instead of being controlled by fear and anxiety, let kindness lead the way. Be smart and stay safe, but remember to be kind.
Our lives are full of emotions and experiences, some good and others not so good. We tend to focus on the not-so-good. We dredge up pain from the past, we fret over the future. But there’s SO MUCH GOOD in life. What if we spent more time focusing on that?
Try this. Find a place to sit quietly, close your eyes, and focus on one good thing in your life. Just one. It doesn’t have to be big; sometimes the little things are the sweetest. Really feel the goodness of that one thing. Let that good feeling sink into your bones. Let it swirl through your body. Feel it lift you up. Now, don’t you feel better?
It only takes a few minutes, but focusing on the good, giving it room to grow, can turn your day around. It might even turn your life around.
This time of year, as the holidays approach, my thoughts turn to the topic of joy vs. obligation. Here’s what I mean…
We humans do stuff. All kinds of stuff. Our lives are full of stuff we “have to do.” But do we really? Are we doing things out of joy, or out of obligation? This crucial distinction can impact the quality of your life.
Yes, we live in this world (for now) and there are certain non-fun things we have to do. Let’s take laundry, for an example. I can’t think of anyone I know who enjoys doing laundry. It’s something we humans just have to do. But try turning “I hate doing laundry” into “I like having clean clothes to wear.” Or “I love it when my clothes are warm from the dryer.” Or “It’s a blessing to have a closet full of nice, clean clothing.” Take that obligation and view it from a perspective of joy.
If the majority of your activities are done out of obligation rather than joy, you may start to feel the strain of this in your physical body. Notice where in your body you feel pain or discomfort. What does this pain keep you from doing, or make it difficult for you to do? It’s likely a task that you don’t really want in your life. Can you take a break from this activity in order to give your physical body a chance to heal? Perhaps you’ll find a different way of accomplishing the task, one that is more in alignment with your joy. Or you may find that you didn’t really need to be doing the dreaded task at all, and were just stubbornly holding on to it out of a misplaced sense of obligation. (I speak from experience here!)
Trying saying this out loud: “I choose a life of joy, not obligation.” Then, one by one, look at each “have to do” in your life. Can you change your perspective on the task to take it from an obligation to a joy? Can you change the way you accomplish the task to make it more fun, more joyful? Can you give it up altogether? If you give this a try, let me know what happens!
