Grounding Earth Mother Guided Meditation

Safety is one of the most important values I hold in the work I do with others. Without safety, nothing can truly change or transform. When we don’t feel safe, physically and/or emotionally, in our environment or in our body, we can’t go very far in our healing, we can't easily contemplate love for ourselves, let alone the realization of our soul.
Someone once asked Deepak if it would be good to go teach meditation to children and adults in underdeveloped or war-torn countries, and he said no. What they need first is food, shelter, and a sense that the ground is not going to shift under them at any moment. Before they can consider higher needs like self-esteem, inner peace, or spiritual contemplation, they need their primary needs met.
How does this hierarchy of needs apply to us here in the west where many of us are privileged, with most of our basic needs taken care of?
Even though most of us have shelter and food, I am sure you have noticed that when you worry...

Spiritual Practices: When To Let Them Go

When what used to work doesn't anymore, including our spiritual practices, it's an invitation to expand to a new level of consciousness.
 
Looking back, I can see how many times I have been hard on myself when a practice stopped working. It has been patterns of not trusting, of wanting to control, of holding on tight to the way things are, and of forgetting my essential nature as the sacred and creative emergent source.
 
It took me time, after my car accident in 2001, to understand the intelligence in it happening. I was injured physically, but it also shook me emotionally. I found myself dependent on others and needing to accept their help. My understanding of love at the time was transactional. In my mind, love always came with conditions. So if I asked for help, I'd expose my vulnerability and open myself up for a dynamic I didn't want to engage in. I was afraid that my inability to navigate it would lead to me losing my freedom in some way. And if I accepted...

Winter Contemplation

Stop. Right here. Right now.

Take a deep breath in through your nose, and let it out your mouth.

Continue. For a moment.

Stop going so fast. Just stop.

Right here. Right now.

Your heart knows. You are here.

Breathe.

Remember who you are. In your heart.

Stop. Pause. Breathe.

Come home. Be in you.

You are here. Now. How beautiful you are.

You are here in your heart.

Breathe.

Feel. This moment. Your being. You.

You. Are. Here. Now. Breathe.

And remember.

This. Now. Is more important than anything you were doing.

Come back now. Be home.

In the centre of your chest.

Everything is there. Nothing is missing.

Breathe. Be here. Be home.

In your heart.

Breathe into the root of your being

breath meditation May 28, 2019

There is no conflict a few conscious breaths can’t lighten.

Try this: Breathe in through the nose, reach for the in breath from deep inside your lower belly or pull it up from the base of your spine, allowing your entire torso to inhale, filling up one chakra at a time with more oxygen than normal. Then hold your breath for one count at the top. Then breathe out through the mouth, constrict the throat slightly making the ocean sound “ha”, drop your jaw, soften your neck and mouth, releasing every tension in your face, exhaling out every last bit of air.

‍Three breaths like this will allow you to take a mental step back, creating more room for perspective and creativity.

‍Breathe like this for 3 minutes you will tap into your parasympathetic system and tell your body it is safe and it can heal.

‍Do it for 10 minutes and you will build the ground for intuition and wisdom to reveal themselves to your awareness.

‍Breathe like this multiple time...
