Living Gratitude Fee Meditation

Living Gratitude Meditation

If you say, I can’t sit and meditate, then grab a cup of tea or coffee and just have a listen.  Allow yourself the 20 minutes or so to be still…. quite….. and open

Oh Happy day!  What are you grateful for?

I’m loving this Video

I thought it was time to post; it’s been over a month. So where have I been? I’ve been in training to become a certified yoga teacher. Spending most of my free time working on my studies, AND I LOVE IT!

I can’t quite explain what yoga does for me; it started 5 years ago as I worked one-on-one with a yoga teacher who has since become my treasured friend. I’ll never forget my first downward facing dog, thinking, “You’ve got to be kidding, this is a resting pose”…. But alas, I love it! Yoga taught me to become friends with my body again, this unique body that houses my divine light, my connection to God. Yoga teaches me to take care of my house, not only on the mat but off the mat by what foods I eat, what words I speak, in every aspect of my life, Yoga has touched some core of it and continues to do so as I continue to grow and learn. The learning is endless so the growing is as well.

You rush into a yoga class, lay your mat down onto the floor and you sit, get quite and breathe…………………………………. Your seat roots to the ground, your spine grows tall, and you expand your chest and close your eyes. The crown of your head reaches up to the heavens and you breathe………….you become centered…………………your mind quiets and you become fully present in the NOW… … We are born with this, it is our birth right, but our busy lives and our monkey brain try and keep us in the ego world, the me world, the I world….. Yoga brings us back to the Devine world, the Godly world, the peaceful world. Yoga brings us back to our truest self, which is pure divine light.

I urge everyone to find their yogi within, it’s not about truing your body into a pretzel, and it’s not about the perfect pose, it’s about being fully present, breathing and connecting to the stillness that is already inside you…….be still, get quite and just be……..the rest will come …..

Peace in =’s Peace out!

Treasure Chest Fun

So blessed, I can actually say that I’ve receive a true treasure chest. My parents created us our very own treasure chest for Christmas, and being from a creative fun loving family, it came from Tortuga Island based on the Movie Pirates of the Caribbean, we each had a map with 3 clues to solve in order to get the combination so we could see what treasures awaited us.

Imagine Christmas morning going outside to see four big boxes, each with a family members name written on it, even the shipping tags were created by my parents down to the marks from customs. This end up it read as we unpacked and pulled out our skeleton and cross bones chest speckled in gold dust, we quickly worked out our clues, well…. I was the last one to figure it out, could not remember a few key facts… MOM, Help

Once the lock was figured out we carefully opened the top and out spills a chest full of gold, silver, diamonds and jewels. Once our treasure was pushed aside, the hidden bottom was open to find all sorts of fun gifts from Mom and Dad. It was the best Christmas ever. What fun we had playing Pirate and Arrrrrrr…. Hands off my chocolate coins mate!

Mom and Dad worked on this all year long, it was so much fun, I’m truly blessed. I can’t wait to do this for someone Christmas 2015.

New Moon and New Year

Today and Tonight, what a magical event, not only is it the start of a New Year and the passing of an old year, we are also in a New Moon phase. When in a New Moon phase (no moon to be seen) the Sun and Moon are in perfect alignment. This coinciding with the start of a New Year creates a tremendous magical time. It’s the perfect time to manifest your deepest desires. Set your intentions and give them up to the power of the universe. In Tibetan beliefs, the earth breathes in-and-out in connection to the moon, the New Moon phase is a time to breathe-in deeply and slowly moving into a calm mind-set. When we are calm and using our breath we become a witness to our emotions and can watch our emotions come and go without becoming attached to them. This calmness helps you see your life, let go of what no longer serves you and see the possibilities of your future. What do you really want out of life? What makes your heart sing and your soul dance? You are never too old or lacking to begin a new phase in your life.

Go outside tonight, sit and be with the moon, breathe in-and-out in a slow rhythm and ask yourself, what is my true purpose in life? Why am I here on Earth? What are my spiritual intentions? Ask yourself these questions, breathe them in-and-out and let go of analyzing the answers that come. If you are already in tune with your true purpose, then ask the Universe, how can I deepen my path, how can I serve more and how can I give more.

When you are living your soul’s purpose in life, you feel energized, joyous, and happy; you walk on could 10 and feel God’s love vibrating in your body. You connect with the Universe and vibrate with the Earth. You are spreading peace and you are healing our world. You are an anchor of light and love and are a spiritual healer and you do this by spreading your positive vibrational energy out to other people, the earth and the Universe.

Living our true purpose in life can take years and years to find, it often comes after spending half of our life time living our responsibilities and learning life lessons. When age comes, we find that our alignment shifts and we discover that what was once important, no longer is. If you are lucky, you can find your path early in life, but the important part is to find it. Every day that you can live your life in alignment with your true purpose is a life walking hand in hand with God.

While sitting outside tonight, remember to end your communion with the Moon, Universe, and God with thankfulness and gratefulness. Be thankful for all the lessons in your life, they were all there to teach you something. Be thankful for all the wonderful positive blessings that are on its way to you in this 2014 magical year. Be thankful and grateful every day. Every day is a gift.

Peace in =’s Peace out

Welcome 2014 with a New Vision Board

Create yourself a vision board and watch the magic of manifestation happen!

I posted this before, but I think it’s a good time to re-post it. As the new year is knocking on our doors, it’s time to reflect on what we want out of 2014 and to let go of what no longer serves us for 2013. I’ll be creating a new board this week and really taking stock of my life and what I want to manifest. The more I dive deeper into my yoga practice, I’m finding my attention is shifting inward, It’ll be interesting to see what my vision board will look like when I’m done.

Create what you want most in your life by creating a vision board.

Create what you want most in your life by creating a vision board.

A vision board is a project created by you to help manifest all you want to have in your life. It’s a place to declare to the Universe that you want your dreams, goals, ideas or martial objects in your time frame in your life.

The creative process in putting together a vision board is very important. When we create it with our hands, when we write it with our fingers, we are declaring it to the Universe in our hands-on vibrations. This is what I want! This is how I want to feel! This is who I wish to be!

A vision board should be placed in a special place in your home where you can look upon it every day. I suggest your bedroom. Sit and look upon your vision board and feel that you have everything you wish to have right that very moment. Have your coffee, tea, or water and breathe in your visions and say, “thank you, thank you Universe”.

The Process
• Cut, draw, glue, pictures and sayings from books, magazines, photos; it’s a collage of dreams to come true. Place your goals, your personal achievements that you want to reach, your material objects you what to have, your state of mind you are trying to reach. Place them on your vision board and then release the “attachment” of obsessing over it each day and let it go to the Universe. Then when you sit each day and absorb your creating, put a smile on your face and FEEL the feeling of having already achieved and received all that is on your board.

(When I first began, I used poster board, then canvas board and now I use a bulletin board)

WOW… it is a magical creation. But I will caution you, you might think you want that new car… but when it comes down to actually creating your vision board, you might find your focus on more mind and heart feelings other that material obtainment’s.

I have taught classes on creating a vision board and meditations on finding out what you truthfully want in life, if you would like more help in finding this out, let me know. I’m happy to help. The more positive happy people in life, the more peaceful our world!

Good luck and happy creating! Have a happy Day!

A Helping Hand

Never be to busy that you can’t lend a helping hand. The holiday season always reminds us of this. Everyone is always busy donating toys to children and turkey dinners to families in need, which is great, but don’t forget about our elderly. My grandmother is currently in a Alzheimer’s care home, the people there may not have their memories left, but they do have feelings. They just want someone to sit with them. If you’ve never been to a home before, it’s an eye opener. May I never lose my wits about me and may God bless all those who have. So if you need a mission, go ask an Alzheimer’s care home or any type of elder care home, “how can I be of service” a little time to sit with someone, hold their hand, sing a song or tell a story too…Oh, they wont remember you visited but you will. And I do believe that for a little while… you’ll bring joy to their little world. Spread Joy, love, and compassion, that’s the true Christmas spirit.
