Looking Ahead

Inner reflection takes honesty, detachment and courage. With these three virtues active, look at what you wish to continue doing. It is important to reflect on what is working and appreciate your efforts in cooperating in this. Value what is good and positive.

Time to Play

How was I to encourage this lightness and also take part in it when there was so much to do. It has taken time and patience to teach, role model, delegate, correct, redirect and forgive, however we regularly carve out time to listen, laugh and play.
See what you can let go of doing and explore with your inner child. Let yourself and your children see how playful and free you really are.

Dissolving Past Versions

This is an experience I had in meditation this morning. I thought to share it with you. I am being pulled out of this old role I am playing. There is a gentle hand guiding me. I feel that I am stuck in a few places. It is like a glue that needs to be…

Carving Out Time For Peace

Many of us take a few moments of reflection during holidays, however, these times may be only a few times a year. True and effective mindfulness is a daily practice of reflective checking and gently guiding our thoughts and feelings back to a sacred place of peace. This place is your own. This place resides in each one of you.
