Meditations to balance your entire life and give you energy

Aug 31, 2021

We have 8 energy centers, or chakras.

Actually, we have more than 8, but the first 8 make the first octave. The first 7 are located in your physical body, and the 8th - the magnetic field - surrounds your entire physical body.

These energy centers govern how we perceive and respond to life.

From the first through the 8th, here's what each energy center governs

  1. your sense of security. Security can be about your next meal or the roof over your head, but it also comes in the form of acceptance...

Don't use meditation to relax...

Jul 13, 2021

...when you can use it to become alive.

Meditation calms the mind -  not to put you to sleep, but to wake you up.

Meditation pulls you in - not so you can't see, but so you can.

Meditation has you feel more, not less. And rather than being afraid, you become more connected to your values.

Meditation will get you in touch with your rage. So that instead of walling up (which happens when you suppress your rage), you set healthy boundaries (which happens when you harness it). And, you...

Make the commitment

Jul 06, 2021

When you’re ready to make a change in your life, it can be exciting and even a bit scary. The emotions you feel prompt the change and motivate you to take action. What happens when the feelings aren’t so strong? Motivation wanes, you lose the excitement. You’re creating new habits so it takes effort to stick with them. 

What you do during this time is powerful and simple. 

Make the commitment, and stick to it. No matter what. 

When you make a commitment to...

May 25, 2021

Stress. It happens to all of us. Yep, even yogis. 

The key is to have your early detection system activated so you can recognize the stress and take action.

Next, take action

Create a cooking meditation with these 4 steps

Apr 20, 2021

Cooking doesn’t have to be a chore or something you have to do. It can be a beautiful meditation where you’re fully connected with yourself and the present moment.  Think about it… this food is what you’re putting into your body to nourish and sustain you. 

It is energy.  

Do you want to put rushed and frantic energy into your food, or do you want loving, calm and peaceful energy infused into it? 

I’ve found that when I’m in a...

What yoga & meditation to practice when you don't have the time

Mar 02, 2021
Here’s a Zen proverb you might have heard: 

 

You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes every day. 

Unless you're too busy; then sit for an hour.

 

The real reasons why most of us are too busy: 
  1. We lack clarity, so we're all over the place.
  2. We lack focus and concentration. So we take weeks, months, and years to “unpack” instead of days, hours, or moments. 
  3. We lack healthy boundaries. We say yes to what’s not ours, which is so...

Don't meditate when you're anxious

Feb 17, 2021

I know it sounds like the perfect time to meditate, but it’s not. 
Meditating when anxious can work, sort of, but it's very temporary, and often it’s just one big struggle keeping still (in mind & body).

That’s because when you’re stressed or anxious, you’re in fight-or-flight mode. Try closing your eyes, getting still, and focusing on your breath, or a mantra, or a visualization technique while your house is on fire. 

 

You can’t.
