from a higher PERSPECTIVE …

“What you choose to focus on becomes your reality.”

My first desert mindfulness hike was a wonderful success … I mean, look at these smiles :) The day was perfect. The people were perfect. I am so grateful to Jordan and Cathie and the universe and the earth and the sunshine and … OK, I could go on forever as there is a lot that got me to this place …

There are a few more workshops left on my snow-birding adventure here in Arizona. Visit First Light Wellness for all the fun details!

meditate on THIS …

If you’ve ever thought about trying meditation and …

  • you think you can’t do it because you have a monkey mind … every human in the entire world has a mind that wanders. That’s part of being alive, so now that we’ve determined that you’re alive, you should try meditating.
  • you don’t know how to do it … no one knows how to do it at first. So now that you know you are no different than anyone else who meditates in this world, you should try meditating.
  • you are afraid to go to a group meditation … if a group of meditators makes you feel uncomfortable as a first timer … um, yeah, that just won’t happen. Ever. So, now you should try meditating.
  • you don’t have the time … you only need 1 minute a day to start meditating. So, if you know how to close your eyes and you know how to inhale and exhale and you know approximately how long one minute is, you should try meditating.
  • you aren’t religious or spiritual … everyone needs a moment of peace and calm in their day, regardless of their level of spirituality. You don’t have to wait for a Spirit or God(s) to tell you that peace and calm will improve your life, so you should try meditating.
  • you can’t sit still … if you can’t sit still for 1 minute, then you should try meditating. It will really help.

Now, if you are ready to get this meditation ball (FYI a meditation ball is not really a thing) rolling, there are a number of ways to do so. And one of the ways I find to be extremely beautiful and personally rewarding is Deepak Chopra and Oprah’s 21-day FREE guided meditation, which starts TOMORROW!!!! OK, yes, it’s last minute. My bad. However, each day is available for 5 days after it is released, so you could think about it for a couple days and then jump on this bandwagon. And if you think too hard about it, then that means you should try meditating.
