Mindful Monday #167 – Waiting on an Answer

I have been waiting on “The Sign” of what to do next for over a year. I have been on a journey of deep healing, each step of the way more and more needed healing emerged. Through facing what needed healing, I gained a deeper connection and understanding of the Universe. Now that I am…

I’m Thankful for: Courage

Somewhere within in me is a fear to speak at this time. A lot of wounds have been open this year at a very large public scale in both our country and the world. Many of us may be treading lightly to avoid inviting conflict and/or inflicting pain on ourselves and others. You may feel…

Mindful Monday #166 – When Spirit Emerges

Happy Monday! I held my first of many public councils and I am on such a high. My heart was so deeply warmed by the yoga studio, the council participants and what emerged in the space. I have so much vision for this space, I deeply believe in it and I have experienced continually the…

Mindful Monday #165 – Set An Intention

Happy Monday! As you are probably well aware, today was a solar eclipse. I hope you were able to step away from work or your necessary tasks and pause to experience th eclipse. Also occurring today is a new moon. New moons are a great time to set intentions for new habits, thoughts, energy shifts…

Mindful Monday #164 – Go Towards the Wound

I don’t know where to begin? I keep meditating on the events of the weekend. I could hear my friends pain, fear and anger in their facebook posts. My first meditation was posted on my personal facebook page.  I called for my friends to be mindful of their words and actions. Pain and fear can…

Mindful Meditation #163 – Love them Just As They Are

I went to the Museum of Broken Relationships on a whim. The museum as described by the museum itself “is a global crowd-sourced project.” It has permanent museums in Los Angeles and Zagreb, Croatia. This museum has traveling exhibits that have been all over the world. People send in artifacts/ relics from their broken relationship…

Mindful Monday #162 – Strength in Knowledge

Knowledge has made a large presence in my life this year. It was skilled in how it showed up and I almost missed it. This year has been filled with a lot of challenges, unexpected experiences and big spot lights that has been shed in the moment of the women (that is me) that is…

Mindful Monday #161 – The Surprising Moment

I stepped away from yoga a month ago, after I fell, because my knee needed time to heal. My knee was not visibly swollen, but it was hard to bend it or put pressure on it. Skin also had to regenerate, which took a long time. I noticed my hips felt tight, in one class,…

Mindful Monday #160 – Community Will Emerge

This year has been filled with unpleasant surprises. I’ve been lucky and I truly mean that with no sarcasm. These upsets and disappointments have been gradual. It hasn’t been all at once. One ends, then another begins. I’ve been able to have mini breathers in between. Being uncomfortable, while it’s uncomfortable, it’s a gift. A…

Mindful Monday #159 – Reboot

My cell phone camera stopped working this weekend. I didn’t know it stopped working, until I was at an event, that I looked forward to and wanted to document. The next morning, I tried everything to get my phone working, yet it continued to malfunction. Finally, I reached the last restort, REBOOT.  Not just any…

Mindful Monday #158 – Ask Questions

People find shelter in my presence. They find comfort in the fact that they feel seen and heard when they spend time with me. “You’re easy to talk to,” both friends and strangers alike have told me. It’s interesting to see people acknowledge, in recent weeks, that they “dump” on me. They dump their secrets, struggles,…

Mindful Monday #157 – Put UNITY Back in Community

One day and one month ago I attended a weekend training to learn how to facilitate the Practice of Council. Council is a community circle where strangers share their stories and truths. Every one is given equal space and equal time to speak and be heard. It is the intentions of those who listen to listen…

Mindful Monday #156 – Get Back to the Truth

Each time I invite open wisdom from abstract subjects like love, marriage and now the voice, I am amazed and changed by what is revealed to me. Earlier this month I asked the voice to “Tell me what I don’t know about you.” I didn’t seek to be proven right or proven wrong, I simply ask with a child-like…

Mindful Monday #155 – Spontaneity

Take a breath. Breathe in life into your diaphragm. Allow it to move any stale, stagnant energy in your body. Imagining your breath transforming into love and light, as you exhale slowly. Breath in again. Notice any shifts, either macro or micro, in your body or mind. Exhale. Repeat as needed. Has your breath or body shifted…

Mindful Monday #154 – The Less Attached You Are

Happy Monday! It’s great to be back with a Monday post. The past two weeks of work have been hectic, which spilled into my weekend with much needed rest. What emerged during that time were freeing realizations. I reached a new level of letting go, that I never thought was possible, because I didn’t know this division could exist….
