Post #80: Read this before your Thanksgiving gathering!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Let me ask you an important question before you get in your car and head out to your family or friends house for Thanksgiving: Would you rather be right, or would you rather be peaceful? This question immediately tells us if we're acting from our ego-self or our soul-self. If you answered that question and would rather be right then you'll want to listen to the guided meditation I've included today. If you'd rather be peaceful then you are on your way to a pleasant holiday gathering. Most of us have family or...

Post #79: 12-minute Dirgha & Ujjayi Breath-Work Practice

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I have unintentionally taken a few weeks off from my blog. I had to put one of my doggies to sleep almost 7 weeks ago, and it has affected me in ways that I could not foresee. Those last 2 weeks of Sochi's life I was fortunately able to spend a lot of time with her. I felt like Sochi helped me to flip a switch and stop pushing myself to get everything done right now. I did a lot of sitting on the couch with her in my lap. I...

Post #78: Breath-Work Practice to Cultivate Contentment

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Do you ever wake up and dread all of the things you need to get done? Do you find yourself in overwhelm from driving yourself to accomplish a certain number of tasks just to feel "worthy" for the day? As all of us do, I noticed after I had my first child that life became different. Time was no longer my own to do with whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted. I remember laying my newborn down in her crib ever so gently to not wake her, shutting her door quietly...

Post #76: 13 minute meditation to clear the central energetic channel and find peace, clarity, and calm

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Chances are you already know that we all have energy bodies as well as physical bodies. It's why when someone is in a bad mood you can "feel" their energy and want to shy away from it. It's why people who are in good moods attract people to them. Good energy feels good and bad energy feels...

Post #72: 16-Minute Storytelling Meditation to Combat Loneliness & Remember God’s Presence

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Do you ever find yourself moving through life, everything is fine, then one day you wake up and it's like the whole world is against you? You feel like you have no friends, you feel like a loser, you feel worthless and unworthy, lonely and isolated, and you are beating yourself down in your head about something you said or did? What the hell happened?! Why do we do this to ourselves?! What triggers this? I have no idea why this overcomes us suddenly, but I do know that it happens...

Post #71: Introduction to the 8-limbed path of yoga!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Summer is here!! And that means longer days in which to cultivate good, wholesome practices! Ashtanga Yoga means the 8-limbed path of yoga and this was written about in Patanjali's yoga sutras thousands of years ago. Understanding these 8-limbs of yoga helps us to understand the basis of yoga and what we are trying to accomplish with the practice.  The first limb of yoga is called the Yamas. These are ways to properly conduct ourselves through daily life. One of these is ahimsa, or non-violence. When we say "violence" this can be the negative...

Post #70: Wake up on the wrong side of the bed?

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]We all do it. We have a great day. Life is good. Then from out of nowhere, bam! We wake up on the wrong side of the bed. Why is that? What happened from yesterday to today? Hormones? Bad dreams? Stress? Maybe a little bit of all of the above? This time you are prepared. Because this time you have a guided meditation that will help take you from the wrong side of the bed to the right side of feeling good again.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_video link="https://vimeo.com/99443313/"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

Post #68: 14-minute Sacred Ceremony to Meet Your Higher Self

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]I hope you are ready because today I am sharing one of my favorite guided meditations.  I was guided to put this one together after one of my friends and fellow yoga teachers passed away unexpectedly years ago. I led a guided meditation at a special memorial that was put together for her and I've never felt more connected with someone who had passed. The days leading up to the memorial I felt like she was helping me craft the perfect meditation that needed to be heard and felt by those she...

Post #66: 7-minute breath-work exercise when you need to press the pause button

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Want to know one of the many things I love about yoga? The self-study. The yoga sutras say that yoga is built on 3 components: discipline, practice and self-study. As we practice yoga we learn to shift into witness consciousness. This is the aspect of consciousness that allows us to turn our focus onto ourselves and "study" ourselves. It's pretty darn cool. It's what allows us to slow down and begin letting go aspects of ourselves that we've picked up and learned along the way that no longer serve us well. For instance, one...

Blog Post #62: 3 Myths of Meditation That Will Change Your Life

Once you understand these 3 myths of meditation it will change the way you look at meditation for good. 3 Myths 1) Meditation must be done in a quiet place with no distractions. 2) Meditation must be done for a certain period of time to obtain benefit. 3) Meditation is pointless for someone under extreme stress with little time. If we waited to meditate when we can sit in a quiet room with no distractions then most of us would never get to it. Granted, when beginning meditation it will help to sit in a...
