As I sit here and await the dawn of the new year now just under an hour away I thought I might just leave the year with a few thoughts…
Don’t look back! There is nothing there for you. Move forward into this new year without fear. Leave old ways of thinking behind. Don’t set yourself stupid and unrealistic “resolutions”, who needs that pressure? Have a goal and just move forward one step at a time and try and live your truth as best you can.
Shine your light for all to see and when you feel that your light is low…reflect some of the light from those you know!
This has been a whirlwind of a year! I have just had a week off work and I am still reeling from the rush that led me here. I know I have not hit all the goals I set for myself in my spiritual growth. I was beating myself about it big time. I allowed life, work, kids, family, fatigue- the list is endless- to get in the way. But then I realised my fretting over the distractions and the seeming “lack of progress” I have made was destroying my peace and impeding my progress even further. I was listening to my daughter and her mum talk the other day about starting a journal in which they would write daily things they were grateful for and it dawned on me…make a list…really have a look at how far you have come…& I did.
I realised that in amongst all the shit and stress and drama and mundane sameness and tiredness I have actually come a long way. Majorly I can say I have quit all my poisonous psychiatric meds, this in turn gave me back my intuition, my conscience and my ability to REALLY feel and experience my emotions for the first time in….I can’t tell you when how long!!!! Through my return of my intuition and my growing ability to trust it I can say I have beaten my bipolar, it’s still there…but I know my triggers and can trust myself and my intuition to feel the “turn”.
I have broken many bad habits.
I have developed much better coping abilities through compassion for my fellow man and mindfulness of my impact within the vibrational field that surrounds me…
I have begun to make some major in-roads towards healing the damage I caused to my loved ones over the years…
As I made my list I realised that although I may not have ended up where I “planned”, I am where I am supposed to be.

So I guess the take home message is this…In 2015, don’t be hard on yourself, just live and show compassion for your fellow man and trust that the universe, the Source will guide you to where you need to be.

Go forward with love into this new year.

Much Light and Love…Always.

Are you feeling stuck in your practice? Did meditation lead to big, positive life changes early on, but now years later you’re just sort of treading water with no sense of making progress? Mindfulness meditation is an extremely helpful and useful practice, but that doesn’t mean that it’s perfect, or that it has no pitfalls. In fact, it’s not uncommon for long-term mindfulness practitioners to get stuck in a particularly pernicious dead end, which is called the observer trap. Here’s what it is and how to free yourself from this cul-de-sac.

The Last Stand

Many traditions—especially mindfulness meditation—encourage you to observe your sensory experience in a neutral manner. Observe your breathing, observe emotions, observe thoughts, and so on, without reacting to them. This observer technique works really well because it gives you something like an outside perspective on your…

Find Your Middle Ground

Guardians of our Being

“Millions of people who otherwise would be completely lost in their minds and in endless past and future concerns are taken back by their dog or cat into the present moment, again and again and reminded of the joy of Being.”

Eckhart Tolle from “Guardians of Being”
