With outer distractions vying for our attention- it is increasingly more important to place our focus on our inner world. It is interesting to hear the reasons why we don’t have the time to meditate- and even though we know the benefits, it can be tough to carve out time for ourselves.
Spring clean your brain- time to declutter all the accumulated stuff that no longer serves.
Welcome to APRIL! This is going to be an exciting month as we continue to move forward. The energies are intense, as we are still clearing out all that no longer serves, but it is different as we can now taste the new that is on the horizon. People everywhere seem to notice the changes (both inner and outer) and it is amazing to witness.
It might be tough, but finding space to do the deep inner work is extremely necessary. It is a form of self-love that some of us are not used to giving ourselves. It involves setting up boundaries and drawing the curtains if only for a short while. Take away all the distractions that demand your attention and what are you left with? You and your essence- and it is a good thing to get to know.
This month, we will continue to focus on the inner essence- and it is all about allowing yours to shine out. Imagine YOU, in all your divinity, shining brightly to those all around you! What a difference we can make within ourselves and the world when we live from this higher truth.
When I allow myself to “get out of my head” and “into my heart” the world just looks different. Not an easy thing for me, as I’ve spent my whole life in “my head”…but as such, it is a practice. As is living more consciously. Like: looking in the eyes of someone who is speaking to me. Allowing myself to show vulnerability. Living from the core. Just noticing my breath. Eating consciously. Spending time outside and actually noticing the surroundings. Pushing myself to try something new. Being comfortable just “BEING.”
Thank you all, for your wonderful support and your comments on this newsletter.
Please see the Events Calendar for our workshops and meditations- as always, even if you can’t join us in Sea Cliff for a meditation, you are invited to use the themes and ideas in your own communities.
Monitor your thoughts- every time you have a negative thought or belief about yourself- stop it. Re-frame and turn it into something positive. Eventually, you will re-train your belief system about what is possible.
“Grace and abundance surround me like a soft embrace,
the warmth I feel emanates
from the essence within.
I know no other feeling but a
deep sense of peace” -cme

Then I experienced the cosmic 2x4. That's my term for a course correction in life.
For me, it was a freaky fall, landing on my elbow, bruising a few ribs has set my plans on hold for now.
To be truthful, I've had some 'why me?' moments where I question the higher purpose. I've questioned what I could have done differently. Yet, the answer I get is "shit happens" and sometimes we don't know the higher purpose.
How's your energy been lately? Are you feeling like something is ready to burst forward in your life?
Here's the skinny: If you are a sensitive soul (and I KNOW you are)...then, you've been feeling the energy of the larger collective and it might have been presenting you with some challenges. With all that is happening in the outer world, we can sometimes feel helpless or overwhelmed.
You know there's something more happening here in the larger perspective; yet it feels that in all the intensity...there is an undercurrent of love.
Can you feel it?
Lately I've been speaking with people about how to manage stress or anxiety. Things seem to have been amped up in the Universe and it's been causing us to look deep within.
For myself, I find it necessary to take a few minutes in the morning to sit quietly~
Since the word "meditation" causes more anxiety in people (oh...the irony); I prefer to call it "sitting."
