Does the idea of meditating make you laugh – or scream, or cry, or want to run away? Is it a practice in finding inner peace, or just a practice in pure frustration? For a long time, I felt the same way.
This episode is about my own personal journey from hating meditation to understanding how to make it work for me. And if you’ve got a busy mind or a painful body, I think you’ll be able to relate.
The end of summer is busy enough; trying to add one more thing to do – even if that thing is self-care – can seem impossible!
A friend once asked me for my one single most important piece of self-care advice. Here’s that, plus four more simple self-care tips – easy enough to implement right now – to wrap up your summer with a much-needed dose of replenishment.
We don’t get to a true experience of our light until we’ve been through the dark.
And from what I’ve been hearing it sounds like this was a summer that acquainted many of us with our darkness.
So, in the spirit of authenticity and confronting the uncomfortable in the name of growth – let’s shed some light on this darkness.
August is a time of heat (too much?), joy (too little?), and – the fire element.
And whether the heat is making us batty or we’ve lost our connection to our joy – the energetic prescription is the same: balance the Heart Meridian.
Remember the idea of mindfulness – paying attention – and you will begin to find that you can feed yourself with small ongoing doses of pure and honest joy.
On today’s episode we explore that elusive idea of finding balance in the summertime.
Summer is hot, bright, fast, light and expansive. We get busy out of the gate, and then we just seem to get busier!
But a key step towards personal growth is taking care that we don’t run ourselves dry.
So we ask ourselves: How DO we find balance?
While the Full Moon gets all the attention, the New Moon is actually a very powerful time for setting intentions. Instead of waiting for the New Year to roll around, the New Moon gives us a monthly reminder to check in with ourselves and get clear on what it is we really want.
A New Moon symbolizes a new beginning; so take advantage of this time to reinvent yourself and start afresh.
The environment around us can often affect how we feel on the inside – a messy house can sometimes make us feel more chaotic and strung out.
On today’s episode, we explore the positive side of that, how the abundance that surrounds us every spring and summer can help to create that same feeling of abundance WITHIN us.
THIS is a journey through six senses.
On the heels of late spring’s amazing display of nature’s abundance, today’s episode explores the idea of physical vs. spiritual abundance. And while having money and material abundance isn’t inherently bad, the question is…is it enough?
How do we counteract our spiritual poverty and cultivate a “spirit of abundance” in a world that constantly leaves us feeling that something is lacking?
The winter into spring transition ushers in a big energy of growth, rebirth, and new beginnings. We suddenly feel more inspired to bring our creative energy and our goals to fruition, and we are encouraged to detoxify ourselves on all levels.
Find out what’s NEW at Moondance this spring + explore what it means to detox in a simple and supportive way.
Before we even SEE spring around us, we start to FEEL spring within us. Sometimes that manifests as a feeling of joy…and other times we feel it as anger, or impatience. Or maybe frustration, irritability, jumpiness, depression – any number of uncomfortable and somewhat disconcerting emotions.
