Discover Gratitude Through Mindfulness

Discover Gratitude Through Mindfulness

Happiness will never come to those who fail to appreciate what they already have. – Buddha I know that when I am in a funk, the simple practice of appreciation can bring a huge difference into my day. When I get down, it’s because I have forgotten to do so. A little bit of gratefulness goes a long way. Be it in meditation, writing in a journal or taking a walk. When I return to gratitude in that moment or during a walk, I remember the gifts that have been given me spiritual, emotional, mental, and even material. I ask...

The Healing Power of Mantras

The Healing Power of Mantras

When I discovered meditation back in 1980, I tried out a myriad of techniques. One of which was mantra meditation. If you are not familiar with mantra meditation, a mantra is a word or phrase that is repeated continually throughout the practice time. The words could be everyday words such as “Peace” or “I am Love” to Sanskrit chants, “Om” or “Om Mani Padme Hum.”  For thousands of years, Sanskrit mantras and similar phrases have been practiced in a specific way to help to attune our mind, body, and spirit. The word mantra itself is derived from two Sanskrit words, manas...

Embrace Your Heart and Bring Tenderness to the World

Embrace Your Heart and Bring Tenderness to the World

As we embrace our heart and bring tenderness into our life, we can also begin to recognize we have empathy and compassion for others in the world. When we look out upon the world with love, what we see becomes more than what we believed it to be. It is not the world of fear, scarcity and anger, it is now a world of potential, of community, of all beings as One.  I know at times that I can be entranced by old patterning and beliefs and not want to even think about being compassionate to others or either to myself. Yet, compassion and empathy practices...

Reveal Your Inner Wisdom

Reveal Your Inner Wisdom

What is Inner Wisdom? Call it intuition, an inner intelligence, or perhaps a connection to the Divine. However you choose to define it, it’s in the practice of meditation, this quieting of the mind and detaching from your thoughts that you allow your inner guidance to become uninhibited. When you get the mental clutter out of the way, you may find you can actually “See” yourself– and your life, relationships, and decisions–more clearly. When you bathe in this awareness, you begin to heal the fissures and cracks made by aggravated stress, and can emerge with a sense of peace and purpose. Allow...

When You Slip Out of Balance

When You Slip Out of Balance

Rest assured, slipping out of balance happens to me on occasion too and it did so not too long ago. Although I do tend to notice it pretty quickly so I can set my life aright again. But it’s easy to slip out of balance. The current world situation is one way we find our way back to negative and addictive behaviors. Other ways can be a heavy workload, relationship disagreements, or trying to do it all. At this point, we seem to fall away from those very practices that assist us in maintaining equilibrium. We have to remember that...
