Suffering is there for one reason and one reason only... To wake you up. Let it!

Funeral for a Friend

If someone had told me it was possible to leave a funeral feeling happy I don't think I'd have believed them. But experiencing is believing. Today I attended the funeral of my friend Ann. I met Ann over two years ago when I first started T'ai chi. Ann was brilliant at T'ai chi. She'd been attending classes for only 18 months and was a natural. She was 20 years my senior and two inches smaller than my own 5 ft 2". She was warm, fun and always laughing. She gave lovely hugs when you walked into… Continue

Blogging my way to Wellness: 4/27

Mindful Meditation Day

Had a tiff w/mom last night. And although part of me is still reeling, I am noticing another part, a part that is opening to holding that greater awareness with it all, a part that is simply accepting what is.

Not analyzing, not ruminating, just allowing. Allowing that my feelings are what they are. They are just there. Not having to change anything. Just allowing and accepting, "this is how it is right… Continue

Yesterday I embroidered nearly all day, timing myself for different designs. Making myself have breaks, pottering in the garden and checking out the puter. Even though I slept well last night I was up and down going to the loo, my dreams were strange - people from my past flitting in and out and everything was like it was in an arthouse movie. Normally my dreams are clear, vibrant and very lucid, these dreams were, well - dreamlike.

Today feels like it will be a good day, the sky is blue… Continue

The Sun is Always Shining

The Sun Is Always Shining

Remember the Sun

There are times when gloom or darkness causes us to momentarily lose sight of the light. Although it is at these times when the thought of the sun can help us. Its warm, glowing rays brighten even our thoughts, and it’s good to remember that despite appearances the sun is shining right now. We may not be able to see it at this very moment, but if clouds block our view, they are only filtering the… Continue

Last week I was all fired up, energy high and I was ready for the off. Then I doubted myself. A friend has roped me in to start a small business up, this is a new friend and the old fears of trust crept back in. Being let down, letting them down. Doing something i don't really feel comfortable with because I don't want to let them down. Going against my truth. Could I use my health as an excuse not to do something, whoa that thought has gone quickly out of the window, my health is good, I feel… Continue

Blogging my way to Wellness: 4/24

Just finished QiGong practice. I love the teachers on the DVD and the music and setting (which is here in CO, where I live, btw.) It won't take long to learn it w/out the DVD. But I want to get the posititioning down accurately. And I do enjoy the DVD.

If I can utilize this blog to get a regular routine going, that will be great. My intention is to have a daily QiGong practice. It is so simple and wonderful. Not to mention healthy. Why is… Continue

Power in Numbers: Sending Our Collective Light to the World

Collective Light

by DailyOm

Combined human intent is worth more than the sum of its parts. A single individual can initiate worldwide improvement by emitting conscious frequencies of love, beauty, goodness, and wisdom. A group of people focusing their energy on sending out light to the world can set the stage for positive global transformation. All of us possess the ability to channel love energy, to heal, to be a conduit for… Continue

Allowing Ourselves to be Nurtured

Let yourself be nurtured and loved. Let people be there for you. Allow yourself to be held when it would feel good. Let someone listen to you, support and encourage you when you need that. Receive comfort from someone's physical presence when you need that. Allow yourself to be uppoted emotionally and cared about.

For too long, we've stood in the background, attending to the needs of others and claiming we have no needs of our own. We've… Continue

Codependency Recovery

How easy it is to blame our problems on others. "Look at what they're doing"... "Look how long I've waited"... "Why doesn't she call".... "if only they'd change then I'd be happy."

Often, our accusations are justified. We probably are feeling hurt and frustrated. In those moments, we may begin to believe that the solution to our pain and frustration is getting the other person to do what we want, or having the outcome we desire. But these… Continue

“Listen to the People”

It is interesting. The people and creatures and things we dismiss in our society are the ones we should be listening to the most. In our history, we dismissed the Native Americans. Instead of listening to them, our society has decided to brutalize them and take away their homes. Yet, the Native Americans are the people that hold knowledge we need to listen to. They hold the wisdom we need to know about to help awaken our society.

Another we dismissed in history are the children. All… Continue
