I have had a great week so far, I have spent time practicing each day and I feel awesome!  Having been a teacher I know that 5 or 10 minutes each and every day is worth more than 30 minutes once in a while.  Taking time to sit quietly in meditation after morning asana practice reminds me of my own inner light and how it connects to that light within everyone and everything.

I watched several short videos online yesterday and in one of the TD Jakes said, “wherever there is appreciation there will be duplication.”  He was saying that the more we show and say appreciative things, being grateful for what we have the more good things will happen for us.  This works in every facet of my life.  5 or 10 minutes spent today makes me crave 5 or 10 minutes tomorrow and the more I appreciate that 5 or 10 minutes and the way it makes me feel the more opportunities I will create in my life to give myself that time.  Gratitude and appreciation go hand in hand with the Law of At(tr)action because of the choice we make based on how we feel.  It’s about the feeling, feeling good – feeling happy, brings us to that space where we want more for ourselves and allows us to reach for more.  Find something that makes you feel really happy – remember that feeling and carry it with you as often as you can.  One of the videos I watched yesterday was Tony Robbins check it out here.  Enjoy!

First this contains a kind of advertisement .. so stop reading this article right here if you want!

As you know I have several goals this year – one is to make 6 figures something I have yet to do in this lifetime.   And you know that I am a very spiritual person always striving to learn something and to just be better on the whole.  I wanted to take this opportunity to share and to tell you about Andrrea Hess.   I have been involved with several of her programs over the past four years and she is amazing.  Her vibration is uplifting.  I once listened to one of her free webinars on healers allowing themselves to also receive and that same day I had several new clients booking sessions with me.  What do I think made the difference?  Maybe it has something to do with the confidence level that changes inside me when I am around successful people – people who tell you that you can do it.  Maybe, that is part of the difference.  Now she is having an amazing sale and I thought I would let you know about it.  She also has plenty of free things, webinars, tele-seminars, and plenty of articles to read if you are not ready to splurge.   I will be signing up for one of her classes again because working with her produces results and I am now in a new venture and I think that this venture will come alive as I work with her!
Andrrea teaches highly conscious entrepreneurs how to create financial abundance and develop their intuitive resources.  Right now, she’s offering a 40% discount on a whole bunch of her existing programs … do check it out:
Andrrea also has a live event coming up in June that is ALL about how to create financial abundance through your Soul Purpose … tickets for that two-day training are also on sale right now.
But hurry – this ends on Friday, May 18th!
I hope you check it out … here’s the link again:

Wow — this is a pretty difficult one for me.

Learning grace seems so far beyond where I am that I can barely imagine living with grace and yet I CAN imagine it.  And if I can imagine it then I can do it.

I haven’t looked up what the definition of grace is – I guess Wikipedia is just a click away.  I think for me grace me ease and gentleness — ahh — writing it makes it so clear.  Gentleness, this is something I was working on for a while and then somewhere along the way I forgot I was trying to integrate it into my life all the time.  I guess I did integrate some of it and yet there are always more layers to this onion than I realize.  So now I will move forward again working on peeling back the next layer as I try to uncover the grace that is within me.

Within my goals for this year, I have intended more gentleness for myself and yet I have slipped some in actually achieving all that I want.  And so, it is time to get back on track and make sure that I am taking care of me while I am working towards other more tangible goals at the same time.

I have waited a day before posting this thinking I would add more and that’s not happening right now so I will post this and just put it out there.  And maybe  I will add more to this thought chain later.

I am so grateful for all that is here in this universe, for all that I am creating and for the people I have brought into my life.  Thank you!

Today is a beautiful day, the wind is blowing, the lake is roaring and the temperature has dropped.  Nature reminds us of how quickly things can change.  Like a light switch, anything can change in a moment.

I once was able to watch Buddhist monks create a sand Mandala, I sat and watched as they carefully and meticulously set one grain of sand by another.  They created a strikingly beautiful mandala over a period of one week.  On the final day, they had a little party, singing and playing instruments, they talked about the mandala, it’s meaning and significance, and the impermanence of things.  To cap it all off they swept the mandala into a container and took it to the nearby river and dumped the sand into the river emphasizing that we need to be aware of how temporary everything is.  We can work ceaselessly on different projects in our life, even on ourself, and in the next moment things may change.  We have to learn to flow with the changes, to allow for new things in our life and to enjoy that which we have now.

This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.” — Dalai Lama

Moksha is the Hindi word for true freedom – freedom of the Self and Mind – it is the ultimate sense of freedom that we most desire in this world.  If you ever sit down and look at your list of goals and deeply figure out what the feeling is that is the basis of most of your goals you will continually go back to Moksha — freedom to do what feels good to you at the deepest level.  I mean how many of us have as a goal — either lots of money or retiring from a job so that we can do what we want — and really all that boils down to is feeling free.

Weekends are special for me.  I spend almost all of my time doing things that inspire me – sometimes work is inspiring but generally since I am answering to someone other than myself repetition means less “inspiration.”  Wayne Dyer says something to the effect that inspiration means being “in-spirit” meaning that when you feel inspired you are “in the zone” or in alignment with your purpose; you are doing what you are meant to do.  I like the idea that I have come to a place in my life where I feel so much freedom.  I do have a really great job during the week, it’s very flexible, it’s only steps from my house, it’s generally fun, I’m very capable at my job, and I have good friends that I work with.  Actually, I think it’s a pretty magical life that I live.  I take my son with me to work every day and although I am working – if he needs me, like when he falls and bumps his head or when he needs love before or after a nap, then I am there for him.  Yet, weekends are extra-special.  My time is devoted to my own inspiring activities and friends, I can spend more of my energy creating and allowing my dreams to progress.  The freedom that weekends bring is more expansive.  I can carry that feeling of freedom with me for a while into the regular week and I feel it more regularly all the time which is thrilling … hopefully I realize it more and more all the time.

I know I need to heal mySelf – I know I need to love mySelf – I know I need to know mySelf. Does silence help? Does stillness work? I think silence allows me to begin to fully see and understand myself and that which I seek. Being silent, being still allows me to explore the depths of my Self for the answers that are ego-less and the answers that are for the good of all. Being silent, being still, affords me the time to allow my questions to reach my innermost levels and to search for answers and reasoning that have depth and greater clarity. That “Silence is golden” is well understood and known to allow people to effectively communicate and appreciate. But more to the point, silence allows healing and develops trust. Silence allows trust in one’s Self and in others we develop friendship with. Silence allows us to share our greatest depths with others. We become less of the physical and more our Real Self when we practice being still. Acknowledging the stillness and our Self in it provides us with such a vast awareness of all that we as a Soul really are. Being still is to fully embrace our Soul, this Universe and our understanding of Light. This is the blossoming of the Lotus and the doorway to freedom.

Can I just stay silent? Can I just be still? Oh, let me just give and receive in the everlasting silence – let me feed from the eternal Light. The Universe knows no bound and this stillness allows me its depths. Let me stay in this space. Let me commune within. There is such peace. There is such space. There is so much to know, so much to learn so much to understand. The silence – the stillness divines. I feel my soul surge – it beats with the pulse of the Universe. When I meet the silence my mind fills with the Light that radiates in all that there is. I want to drink from the depths of the Universe to fill my Soul, my Being with its birth. The silence expands me, it burns yearning into my heart. Let me stay in the silence, let me feed from its source.
