Mindful Monday #183 – The Backburner

Wisdom is everywhere. We hear it from our teachers or parents/ guardians when we are young. We gain wisdom with each experience we have from childhood and beyond. We may read wisdom in poems or books or hear it in lectures or conversations. We may even speak our personal wisdom to our friends and colleagues….

Mindful Monday #181 – Restore Balance

Happy Monday! As summer winds down we may find ourselves at the start of something new. We may have a new schedule or be at a new school/ career or in a new home or city. Or maybe we are experiencing life without someone like a parent, friend, a partner or a special co-worker. Or…

Mindful Monday #175 – Play Ball

I know I made the right choice. I know I am on the right path. This part of my life is over. Last week, I felt this finality for the first time and I have felt it every day since. I knew I was leaving, since October, and it gave me time to say my good…

On the Rise

I was nervous as I got ready this morning. The thought “I’m not suppose to be here” resounded in my mind. Not here as in this transition, but here as in the training. I knew I was about to step into a space filled with psychologist, therapist, social workers and me. I am not a…

Mindful Monday #174 – Driven By Greed

It’s an ugly word, with an unflattering meaning, yet more and more people are dancing with G R E E D and getting into bed with it these days. The desire to have power over others via money, taking others power or silencing is driven and rooted in the ego. The Ego’s Mantra, when it…

Mindful Monday #172 – Your Untapped Strength

Happy Monday! I stepped into my 2nd yoga class of 2018. Class provided space for a humbling and empowering realization that I did not see it coming. During the last few hours, on the last day of my silent meditation, which was the first day of the new year, I hurt my right foot. We required…

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…

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 #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 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 #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,…
