Whenever I am feeling uncertain about what to do when it concerns my children, I simply ask the question: What is best for _______?
Usually the first answer that comes up, is the answer.
If you are still unclear….
Find a quiet moment – perhaps before you go to sleep.
Take a few deep breaths and ask the question. Be still….
The answer may come up through your dreams, or right then and there. One way or another, your inner GPS is always on and working.
You will be guided somehow!
Close your eyes. Take a few deep, long breaths, and simple let your body relax.
Imagine you wake up and it is the morning of December 31, 2015. You are about to celebrate the end of 2015. You reflect back, and notice all that became possible for you. All that you are grateful for. Whatever you envisioned a year ago, has come to life from all your intentional work. What is possible for you at that moment that wasn’t possible the previous year. See what is present in your life now – all that you envisioned is now present. See it. If it is a partner, turn around and give that partner a hug. If it is healthy children, see them running into your room all vibrant and perfect.
See what is possible for you, and experience it. Enoy the visualization.
Affirm: “This or something better will manifest for me now, for the greater good of all beings”
If you’re on a line, in traffic or any hectic moment, imagine a tree. A big redwood tree. Step inside of it. Stay there as long as you need to. (no need to close your eyes, deep breaths or anything else – unless you prefer to of course!)
Find a moment in your day, when you can simply be still for even a few minutes. You will notice that if you can meditate more than once a week, your holiday will somehow seem longer, and longer. You will be putting the brakes on during the holiday rush.
Make your list of people you will buy gifts for and save it on word. This way you have it handy every year. You can also include what you are buying for them, in case they really enjoyed it and you can purchase the same gift or a variation of it (like a spa gift certificate to their favorite spot).
Dedicate at least 15 minutes a day connecting with your family. Even through a phone call on your way home from the mall or work. Say a holiday story over the phone if you won’t make it home before bedtime. Anything works and goes a long way!
Close your eyes…
Take a few deep breaths…
Envision a cord being released from your tail bone, and anchor it into the core of the earth. Feel gravity pull your back straight…pulling it down. Straighten your back.
Ask yourself what you would like during this time of year. See what comes up. If you actually couldn’t hear anything; or feel anything, ask again.
Once you’ve heard the answer, thank yourself.
Open your eyes.
Whatever the answer is, that will be the gift you give yourself this year. If it is connection, then connect with yourself during another meditation tomorrow. This will open your heart to also give to others.
Enjoy this time of year…
There are times when it may be hard to take a good look at what there is to be grateful for – yet those are the Best times to notice what is present in your life. You can do this every day…
Take a moment and look around at your life and that is. Notice your home, your body, do you have at least one loved one? Are you employed? Did you have dinner last night? Although these may seem basic to you at the moment, they were once things that you longed for and hoped to achieve.
Take this moment to close your eyes, take a few deep breaths, and feel whatever you are sitting on. Notice that there was a time that this did not exist, and now it does. You caused it. Acknowledge the achievement…and thank yourself, and the universe for collaborating to make it possible.
Next think of someone you really appreciate, and thank them for being a part of your life;
Go through all that is for you at this time in your life, and simply notice and acknowledge all of it.
Open your eyes, take a deep breath. Enjoy the new day and all the experience that comes with it!
There are various forms of meditations available when it comes to sex and spirituality
The ones that I’ve enjoyed, are the kundalini meditations by Osho. Visit http://oshomedia.blog.osho.com/ for an abundance of meditations, books and information. Choose what you resonate with.
When I need to connect further, I like to meditate and visualize my husband and I, as light beings. Simply being together and experiencing a deeper bond. This is a time for play for our spirit selves. This reunites me with him at times when I feel detached. Practicing this visualization before a conversation, lays out our communication in a very peaceful, clear and productive way. It is much easier to transition to intimacy from there.
Practice closing your eyes and seeing each other’s spirits (or light beings). Communicate, and honor each other. Open your eyes and be reminded of who he is in your life, and in this world.
Indulge in each other’s presence…
Allow your practice this week to simply be:
When you stumble somewhere in life, or hit a really bad bump along the way…no matter how small or large the circumstance is – simply embrace it.
Remind yourself that this is what you are here for.
Post it on your bathroom mirror for a week (a month is even better), and affirm it daily.
A great way to tune into what lies beneath is to be still.
Meditation allows you the opportunity of stillness. When the chatter in your mind quiets down, you can then listen to what comes up. It is usually your very first thought. The very first feeling. This is also your inner voice or intuition speaking to you about what wants to be heard. Meditation is the way in which you can bridge your conscious with your subconscious.
Find a comfortable place to sit where you will not be disturbed for at least 5 minutes.
Shut your eyes and take several deep breaths.
Count in as you inhale and count out as you exhale.
As the oxygen begins to flow to your brain you will naturally begin to unwind and relax.
The thoughts will slowly come in and simply notice them, and then tell them to leave.
Continue to ask your thoughts to leave until you have a moment of stillness.
Practicing this and flexing your meditation muscle will eventually create longer moments of stillness.
See what comes up. If its a feeling of anxiety or fear, ask it what it wants. Notice what answers flow in.
Thank yourself and your inner voice and open your eyes.
Practice a few times a week and write down what has come up for you. You may prefer to draw what an image if that is what came up.
Simply notice what appears…
As you are racing through the day, take a deep breath, take another, put your hand on your heart, and affirm…
I am here…
I am here…
I am here…
See yourself sitting under a tree and affirm again (no need to close your eyes…just imagine it).
Stay present, and stay connected to your heart. It will help keep you grounded throughout the day.
