Our thoughts are very powerful energies. Where focus goes, energy flows. The issue is that most of the time, people are not paying attention to what they are actually paying attention to. Every bad feeling we have is the result of our distorted negative thinking. Let's use our meditation time today to direct the focus of our attention on those thoughts that bring love, light and life into our moments. The challenge will then be to go about the rest of your day with conscious awareness and direct your mind towards these thoughts that bring more life into your days. Jx ... See MoreSee Less

Where do you seek your wisdom, guidance, and answers from? Whatever it is, the answer lies waiting for you withIN. This is why taking time regularly to BE fully present with yourself is vital to living an aligned, balanced and wholesome happy life. It's a time to tune IN, disconnect from the 'noise' of life and others, and 'hear' your truth and wisdom. Now is as good a time as any, and you don't need an hour. Start with 4 whole minutes.... even 2 is better than none. Consistency of practice is what matters to strengthen your connection, not length of time. So.....let's gets cracking! 😉 Jx ...

I'd like to share one of my favorite poems by Rumi with you. It's short but so sweet. I invite you to reflect on these words as you find some quiet still time to tune IN and embrace the 'magical' force that you are in the world! Jx
'You were born with potential.
You were born with goodness and trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams.
You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don’t.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly. ... See MoreSee Less

Feeling stuck or confused? Second guessing what you should do? Need an answer? Get still. Get quiet. Tune IN. The answer you seek is waiting for your full attention. Trust your instincts. If it's not 'absolutely yes' then it's 'absolutely no.' Jx ... See MoreSee Less

What we cultivate withIN ourselves is mirrored back to us through our experiences. The more love and gratitude and peace we create withIN, the more you will notice these qualities in others and circumstances you find yourself in. Use your meditation time to tune INto the magic you'd like to experience in life. Ask to BE here now. Open your heart to receive the many blessings life has to offer and remember this: you are worthy. You are loved. You are important. Jx ... See MoreSee Less

Sometimes we just need to 'tune out' from all the noise and distractions around us, and tune INto the wisdom withIN.
Try this: have a specific question in mind. Close your eyes. Be sure to be in a space where you will not be interrupted for say 2-4 whole minutes. Set a timer if you need to so you don't have to 'worry' about time. Then, ask the question. Open your mind and heart to receive the subtle but sure guidance that emerges. No need to 'force' an answer - it will rise like a magnificent sunrise. Just be curious - it may feel like an intuition, a 6th sense or a simple idea that just pops up.
Don't be surprised if it's quite simple too. Perhaps we are the ones who over complicate our own lives.
Remember to say 'thank you' and then take an action.
Try it for yourself. I'd love to know how you go, so feel free to share. Very best wishes to you, Jx ... See MoreSee Less

If you feel like your ship is sinking, it might be a good time to let go of the things that are weighing you down. Start with the things that are truly useless, like old regrets, shame, resentments, and anger. Life is waaaay to short for that stuff! You deserve to live life in present moments, not weighed down by the past. Let it all GO! Let go and let God. Hand it all over. In your quiet spaces today, breath down deeply into your heart space. Connect with the unconditional love you know exists there. All that love to speak to you, to comfort you, to give you the courage you need to let go of what no longer serves your highest good. It is time for YOU to RISE and SHINE and drop all of the weight of the past. You don't live there. You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep rereading your previous one. Jx ...

Make the NOW the primary focus of your life. Now is the moment. The past is just a memory. The future is a mental projection.
You can choose to dwell back in the past for learning and joyous reflection. You can choose to dwell in the future for visualization and practical planning. However, any time your awareness floats away to the past or future (frequently for negative purposes), you are suffocating your ability to thrive in the only moment you ever have… the NOW.
Past and future literally do not exist right now. Feel the freedom in this truth in your meditation practice today. Jx ... See MoreSee Less

Every moment spent in peace and stillness builds and strengthens us.
We must understand the importance and need for these times of complete stillness to enable us to re-adjust ourselves.
We all need help to get our values right. Every moment spent in that peace and stillness builds and strengthens us so we can take the knocks of the world without being crushed by them. We can see them as 'character building'.
With inner joy in our hearts, the whole world looks completely different. We realise that everything we have and everything that happens is a gift somehow, and our heart sings a song of constant thanksgiving. Jx ... See MoreSee Less

When life gives you every reason to be negative, think of one good reason to be positive. There’s always something to be grateful for, and meditation is a perfect time to still yourself and your mind to be able to take stock and put life into broader context, calm and peace. Jx ... See MoreSee Less

Just as the body is influenced by what you eat, your mind is also influenced by your thoughts, your mindset and your life experiences. With mindfulness, you can train your mind to be in the present moment and spend less time preoccupied with unhelpful, unproductive thoughts. Recognizing that we are not our thoughts and that thoughts are simply that, thoughts can be hugely helpful in terms of the way you 'choose' to experience the world. Jx ... See MoreSee Less

Sometimes you have to work at happiness. Some hurdles in life are too difficult to clear simply by adopting a positive mindset. Do you need to forgive someone? Do you need to let go of a failed relationship? Do you need to come to terms with the death of a loved one?
Life is full of loss. But, in a sense, true happiness would not be possible without it. It helps us appreciate the good times. It helps us grow.
If you’re struggling to see the light, you’re not alone. Meditate. Find your peace within. You can also reach out for support. Don’t let loss devour you. Jx ... See MoreSee Less

Happy 2020! Let's make this year extraordinarily great. Know that what you do matters the instant that you do it, and more importantly, the instant you decide to BE it. Don't get frustrated by unseen results - progress can be invisible. Keep adding value. Keep putting good things into our pool of humanity. That's what we all need more of by everybody. Consider having good intentions and acting on them today, even if you feel like you are the only one. Will you join me in showing your power? Jx ... See MoreSee Less

As the new year fast approaches, I begin my reflection on the year that was. I note that the things that broke my heart were also the things that cracked it wide open for expanded wisdom, understanding and compassion. It's the 'breaking' that allows the light to get in, and my light to burn even more brightly. I burn for you. Shine on! Jx ... See MoreSee Less
