    How to Let Go and Let Life Flow

    How to Let Go and Let Life Flow

    It can be difficult to feel happy if you are resisting life at every turn. This relaxing calm meditation can help you loosen your grip on life and feel better.
    Whatever you resist persists, so learning how to let go can really help you move into a new mindset, a happier mindset.
    We all have a tendency to try and control things. While that may be a good thing in theory, it’s not actually a very practical way to live.
    For example, your current situation in life is the way it is, whether you like it or not. When you constantly feel unhappy or restless, you create a certain amount of resistance, which creates a barrier that keeps good things from coming in.
    Acknowledging the bad things that you have drawn into your life is the first step to letting go of and allowing better things in.
    Sometimes certain people or certain situations are brought into our lives to teach us something. Acceptance and acknowledgment is the key here because resisting only makes you feel worse!
    When you begin to move into a space of grateful appreciation, even for those negative or hurtful things, you begin to move into a space of optimism and hope.

    A Meditation for Expressing Gratitude and Appreciation

    A Meditation for Expressing Gratitude and Appreciation

    Practicing gratitude and expressing appreciation is a great way to move closer towards your true self.
    Learning to appreciate the gifts you already have in your life and expressing gratitude for those gifts you have yet to receive can completely change the tone of your day.
    Many of us are so wrapped up in trying to get ahead that we forget that we can choose to be happy and grateful NOW.
    We can take time out of our day to smell a flower or appreciate a happy moment. We can call a friend or sit with a cup of tea. We can be grateful for those things we have already been blessed with.
    What you have already is priceless. You are the miracle. When you take the time to celebrate yourself you begin to really understand how amazing you truly are.
    Just relax and close your eyes. Tune into this moment in time. Give thanks for your life and for those blessings you already have.

    This lovely meditation can help you quiet your mind and tune into that inner stillness. Simply listen to the soothing music, and soft words and your mind will be able to relax in a very short time.
    This meditation is relaxing and easy. Just what you need for those times when you are feeling off-balanced.
    This meditation also has the Blessism for Quieting the Mind at the end. Like the beautiful lotus flower – you can rise above the mud and the muck and choose to live a more peaceful and fulfilling life.
    Blessism for Quieting the Mind
    I bless my ability to quiet my mind so I may hear my inner voice. With every breath I take, I release any and all fears and breathe in positive energy and peace. I surrender any limiting thoughts or energy that impede the fulfillment of my purpose. Today may I receive what I need. May my way be cleared as I step out of the darkness and into the light of and into a higher vibration. I have this creative healing power. It lives inside of me. I am open to raising my level of consciousness with every breath I take. Like the beautiful lotus flower - I can rise above the mud and the muck and choose to live a more peaceful and fulfilling life and for that I am grateful.

    Finding Joy in Difficult Times

    Finding Joy in Difficult Times

    Without sadness, we would not appreciate joy.
    Like the yin and the yang, we need both positive and negative emotions and experiences to appreciate what we have.
    Life isn't always going to be easy....that we know, but it shouldn't always be hard. Without the struggle, we won't have as much appreciation for freedom. Without heartbreak, love would not be quite so sweet.
    Practicing gratitude can really help you shift your focus, from those things that bring you down to those things you feel grateful for.
    Gratitude also strengthens your immune system, which in turn helps your body defend itself against disease and recover faster from illnesses.
    When you meditate and practice mindfulness, your body releases natural endorphins into the bloodstream that help you cope better with stress and pain.The best way to find joy in difficult times is to focus on those things that you feel grateful for at the moment.
    This meditation is all about looking at ways you can find joy in difficult times.
