Mirror Meditation: 12 Steps to Allowing and Nonattachment

As author Paolo Coelho writes, “If you’re afraid — don’t do it; if you decide to do it — don’t be afraid.” It’s great advice for anything, but especially applicable to mirror meditation. Mirrors get a bum rap, made notorious in horror films and touted as tools for narcissism or platforms for self-hatred. It’s unfortunate, […]

Meditation: Beyond the Trend

I recently came across a fascinating article about how different types of meditation affect the brain differently written by Rick Nauert, PhD. I shared it with my meditation group last night, and it stuck with me through the night until this morning. The article distinguishes two main types of meditation: directive and nondirective. For the […]

Har! Sound of the Universe

Yogi Bhajan, responsible for bringing Kundalini Yoga to the West, taught a very powerful meditation using the syllable of “HAR”. I’d like to share it with you. First put your hands together in front of you, back to back like a reverse “Namaste” or prayer pose. But then let them relax and curl in toward […]

On Overdrive? Try This.

Are you all feeling the amping of energies lately just as I am? Astrologically, we are in very interesting times. Time itself seems to be speeding up, information (and misinformation) is a constant onslaught, and change is not only imminent but mandatory. We’re all being asked to up our game. If we don’t take time […]

Day 4: The Voice of Love in a World of Fear

I am in a personal exploration of Divine Guidance and distinguishing between the voice of fear and the voice of love. My inspiration came from the article, How to Distinguish Between Divine Guidance and Fear/Ego/Imagination, on Sir Froggie’s PositiveNews Network. In it, the author shares 36 descriptors to help us realize the differences between the […]

It deals directly with our “voices” and helps us to understand the difference between […]

Dreamer or Dreamsmith?

One of the most important things we can ever do is remember that we are always dreaming. Until we do, we are merely dreamers, but not yet dreamsmiths. Even what we deem the “awake” state is really not that much different from the sleep state. It’s all a dream. I’m dreaming I’m a person living […]

Sounds for Ascension

Yesterday, I facilitated Toning for Peace at the beautiful geodesic dome of the Light Center in Black Mountain, NC. It’s my absolutely favorite place to tone. It’s such a beautiful space supported by so many benevolent energies. And the acoustics! Yowza! There were four of us. Not a big turn out, but as usual, the […]

AH OM HUM for Sleep

Ready to settle down for the night and want a toning exercise that will quiet the mind and help prepare you for restful sleep? Give AH-OM-HUM a try. It is very similar to AUM or OM, but there is a subtle yet powerful difference.  These three syllables are a purification practice, perfect for releasing the […]

The World of Sound Therapy Part III: Tibetan Instruments

The Tibetans  are masters at healing with sound. Tibetan bells, ting-shas, the shang, gongs, and other instruments are used to shake up the energy in the body and dispel disease, shift stagnated energy, or fill the body with healthy vitality.
