Getting Centered #MindfulMonday
When we're busy, busy, busy, it's a good idea to take a few breaths to re-center so we can be at our best!
Sitting With Our Thoughts
Mind too busy to meditate? Yeah, I get it, I've been there too, but my eyes were opened with a little practice, and I see it differently now. So can you. Have a listen and let me know what you think!
On Empathy and Burnout
Sometimes we overload ourselves with the worries of others. We want to help, to support, but we also need to take care of ourselves as well as the other person. If you, like me, are a "fixer", wanting to be there for someone to the point we wear ourselves out? Listen to this podcast and let me know what you think.
Ho'oponopono a Forgiveness Practice
This Hawaiian forgiveness practice is about accepting responsibility for wrongs that are done. Not just wrongs by us or to us, but accepting responsibility for what is going on in our world and offering to reconcile with those wrongs on a universal scale.
We can heal our fractured world by repeating this beautiful prayer as a mantra, repeated over and over to soak it into the depths of our beings, connected with all other beings as well.
The thing about meditation is...
Pretty much nobody just sits down, starts meditating, and is immediately changed. Like everything else you aspire to do, you gotta practice to develop your skills. You gotta do the work to reap the rewards. The work is the practice. The joy is in the practice too.
Keeping a Mental Picture
When things get rough on this roller coaster ride we call life, the memories of what brings us happiness or joy can sustain us. This is simply a reminder to be present with matters most. Different for everyone in one way or another, but alike all the same. We are one human race, with similar desires, problems, needs, and sources of joy. All are to be held precious!
