Spring Cleaning

"Silence is that suspended moment when life holds its breath, waiting for you to catch yours."  

  -Laura Berman Fortgang

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-  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"

 in JOY-

What Needs to Happen to CREATE CHANGE in 2019?

Whew!
What a ride 2018 has been.

I don't know about you, but for me personally- it was one helluva _________ (insert your own imaginative word here)

Do you remember that carnival ride- the one that you sat strapped in- it flung you around, up and down and spun you around? I think it was called a "Tilt-A-Whirl"

That's what 2018  felt like for me.

Conscious Eating- The Divine Dining Method
Conscious Eating- Mindful Ways to Navigate the Holiday Season

November 07, 2018

“Be one with the food”…that is what I always tell my children, when they are shoveling their dinner.  Conscious eating is about  being completely aware of the act of eating. It is not the shoveling or mindless stuffing of one’s face.  When we are fully engaged in the process of eating- we can deeply experience the tastes, sensations, and aromas.  When you bring a Conscious Eating habit to your life; you’ll be kinder to your digestive system and you won’t overeat.  You’ll be in tune with your body and stop when full.  If you aren’t ready to make the whole transformation of your eating habits, then try it with a snack or  a light meal.  Food can become a spiritual experience, when it is approached from a mindful perspective.
