I am aware I haven’t written much, however…this is not any of that enlightenment, inspiration, life coaching or advice stuff. It’s simply here…for when I do decide on a whim to share my thoughts, believes & experiences.
It’s just my journal type thing and I still have a long way to go. I’m only on my third chapter 😉
PART OF MY JOURNEY;
It’s been quite a journey so far…
I’ll be back to add much to this post. Until then, maybe…just maybe some educated information might help a lot (or some?) people THINK, use their brain cells while they still can? Check out link above…for starters
*neurosurgeon said mine had to be growing for about 4 years; that’d make the start around 1993.
Invisible disabilities. Can’t judge a book by it’s cover. Things are not always what they seem. Empathy. Understanding
This is a bloggers post I liked.
Although there are a million ways,
But this one touched me because it's
more how I "like" to...even in my own
backyard, patio or private sanctuary ♡
How to Meditate for Peace
There are many ways to meditate, this is just one way.
It can be done anywhere you are. Of course a place of natural beauty is sweet to softly midwife you into a deeper connectedness. 🀄
Wear something that would not restrict movement. (you may later want to dance 😉 Loose comfortable clothing, or naked…
Find a place where the sounds, smells, sights, feel and all senses are enhanced. A quiet glowing room, a fresh open mountain top, the salty seashore… Or close the door and imagine yourself there.
Have a towel, mat or blanket to sit on creating a space within the greater space where you can settle on.
Ideally find a surface that will support your posture. Sand works great as you can shape it into a “zafu;” a rolled up towel, blanket or pillow will do too. Chairs for those of us in our office.
Sit with ankles parallel and your hips open. This allows the knees to drop down, aligning your spine for heightened relaxation of nervous system, toning abdominals, and optimum meditation. Sukasana.
Rest hands palm up or palm down on your knees. This gesture of palm up is a receiving cup or palm down, is of giving and grounding a connection with earth.. More about Mudras (gestures) later…
Reign in your focus. Rather than fix your eyes on an object or spot, gaze out into a single point on the horizon where all planes converge. In other words, the vanishing point, between your eyebrows.
Begin to observe the quality of your breath. Then begin breathing rhythmically, measuring a 4-count inhale hold for 4-counts then exhale thru the mouth as if fogging a mirror. Repeat 3xs. Feel present
Take a moment of gratitude shifting the energy within. There are never enough moments to be thankful; by being grateful more opportunities to be thankful arise. 4-count inhale/exhale now thru nose.
Focus on the breath. Observe your thoughts as they pass like a mind stream, like waves that come and go. Disconnect one thought from the other. Remain 10 minutes here. Build gradually your practice.

There is something liberating about handing the pen to God and letting him do his work
hand the pen to the one who doesn’t need an eraser
hand the pen to the one who doesn’t need help with words
hand the pen to the one who knows you better than you know yourself
hand the pen to the only one who is capable of writing your happy ending

“It all eventually makes sense and if you’re fearless you’ll use all that knowledge and create the life you want.” – Mirtha Michelle Castro in Letters, To Women Like Me
I like to make something clear about me. I’ve already had my “happily ever after”. I am blessed to have a loving, kind, smart & supportive…tight family; plenty of love…that circles around & around. I believe, obviously among many lol, the quote by Mandy Hale – “Learn to be alone and to like it. There is nothing more freeing and empowering than learning to like your own company.”
Actually I could go on way too long with her quotes. She comes from a place I know ♡ and like…a LOT 😀 love ♡
