7-Day Yoga Routine

I’m very excited about my chakra course on the Udemy.com site. By studying the energy within we are guided to find a deeper understanding of ourselves. Following my instruction you will learn what the chakras are and how focusing on balancing them will bring you greater self-understanding, self-confidence, and less stress.

From now till August 31st save and take this course for only $35 (regularly $49)!

Struggling

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When I walked by this chalkboard (image above) I stopped in my tracks. The quote spoke to me. So often we are looking at success based on other peoples recognition or financial reimbursement for our efforts.

This quote reminded me that success and failure aren’t necessarily what we think they are. As the Bhagavad Gita says, no effort is ever wasted. If we are struggling is does not me we are failing.

Live Light Practice:

Set aside some quiet time for this self-inquiry.

What does success mean to you?

What is a successful career or relationship?

How are you living true to your values in your personal relationships and at work?

Rabbit, rabbit

The start of a new month begins today and the chance to review your goals and intentions. August can generally be the hottest month and is the last month of summer. Leading up to the transition of fall we can choose to let our selves enjoy summer or start gearing up for the start of a new season.

Looking at current goals and intentions and checking where you are with them can help you stay on track. For me I’m continuing building the 7-day Chakra course on Udemy.com, planning upcoming retreats (Vermont, Panama, Thailand), and on a personal note gearing up for a new puppy!

Each and every moment we get to choose what to focus on and how to look at the world. How do you choose to see your life?

Live Light Practice:
Over coffee, tea or your beverage of choice contemplate what your intention for the month of August is. How do you want to be? What areas of your life do you need to shed light on?

Knitting Meditations

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although, some may view summer days as sweaty rather than sweet, I find summer to always leave me with a smile. The smile may come from nostalgic days of past or from new memories being created.

I’ve been taking time to fit in my favorite summer pass time – knitting on the beach. This past weekend when I was knitting on the beach I observed myself as the wind picked up and my eyes narrowed. I leaned back and deepened my breath and with each inhale knit, each exhale purl. The repetition brought my mind to focus instead of being whipped around by the storm rolling in.

My afternoon at the beach was a continuous gentle meditation. I sat still with the focus on knitting the yarn together in a balanced, flexible, and steady manor. Meditation in motion doesn’t have to be from knitting, it could be during a run, bike ride, etc. How do you find yourself in the present moment?

Live Light Practice:

With only a few weeks left in summer. How can you make it memorable? How do you want to be when the soft hues of fall begin to roll in?
