Mindful Monday #178 – What is Right?

Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe Out. We have had a lot of challenging news, over the past few weeks. It feels like it’s all becoming far too common. I was trained in Level 1 of Trauma Resiliency in March, and since then trauma is another lens in which I see the world. I hope…

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…

Power Thought #1 – Honor Your Strength and Power

I meditated this morning, for the first time in months. I had forgotten how powerful intentional moments of silence is when it’s practiced. In a few weeks my friend and I will teach a yoga and meditation workshop on the throat chakra. In preparation, I opened up an ongoing meditation or in my case a dialogue with the…

Tune Tuesday #25 – Everyone Wants to Be Loved

For the Month of February I set the intention to meditate on LOVE. I want to sit in the essence of love so it can teach me beyond what I have experienced and been socialized to believe. I want to learn what I don’t know that I don’t know. Typically when we think of love, we think of…

Mindful Monday #92 – Do Not Lose Your Inner Peace

It’s Monday and I am back for real. This month has been a challenge from the start and it resembles my entire year. No part of this year was easy. Before I restored my energy from pushing through one challenge, I found myself faced with a new challenge. There were several times this year when I felt…

My Body Is My Temple

“My Body is my Temple,” is the phrase on my 2015 vision board. When we think about a temple we think about something that is well taken care of and sacred. I have been focusing on my health since I moved to Los Angeles, but really started to make better strides toward it these past…

My Inciting Incident

This past Friday was my 5 year anniversary of moving to Los Angeles (LA). My move was prompted by my desire to further my career in the entertainment industry. In college, once I decided to actually pursue this career (versus dream about it), I knew LA would be in my future. The year before I…

Mindful Monday #9 – Right on Time

I haven’t been meditating as much as I meditated last year or as much as I intended to meditate this year or really at all.  I feel the difference.  However, in my practice of being present and in the moment, I have discovered that the answers to questions that I have come to me as…

Goal Setting Can Change Your Life

Change is inevitable.  I don’t fear change, I welcome it with my goals. My life long goal is to be the best person I can be and live my best life. I think stagnation means you are dead or close to it. Life is about living. I choose life. I have never been so attached to…
