Hi Brave Girls,
Today we are doing a meditation based on Thich Nhat Hanh’s, A Handful of Quiet.
You will need 4 pebbles.
The first pebble is your flower. It is a reminder of being fresh and open. It also reminds us to see the beauty and possibilities around us.
The second pebble represents your mountain. The mountain pebble reminds us that we all are solid and calm inside. This helps our friends see us as reliable. It reminds us that we can depend on ourselves.
The third pebble represents calm water. When you look at the lake's calm surface, you can see the reflection of the clouds, the sky, and the mountains. Calm water helps reflect what is truly there. This pebble reminds us to find our calm.
The fourth pebble represents space and freedom. Space is freedom, and freedom is the foundation for true happiness.
Holding these pebbles while meditating can help you stay in the present moment. I love feeling the different textures of my pebbles and the cool touch!
Hi Brave Friends,
As part of the Inner Spring Cleaning, I will be sharing weekly meditations.
This week we start with a Loving Kindness Meditation to help inspire compassion for yourself, family, friends, and even those people that bring up negative emotions in you.
There is a free Love and Kindness Journaling Page that is included in The Inner Spring Cleaning Mental Health Cleanse Journal that you can download. Do this quick activity after your meditation! This will really help you deepen your experience.
Meditating has been the one thing that has truly made a difference in how I feel and how I react to everyday stressors in my life.
I would love to hear your thoughts after doing this practice. Please leave a comment below.
I have a poster that you can print out and keep by your workspace so that you can do this practice anytime.
Wishing you a wonderful day!
Hi Brave Friends!!
I am sharing with you one of my secrets that I do everyday-sometimes even twice a day, and I am sharing this secret with you because I want you to feel happy, centered, healthy, and present.
The secret is that I practice mindfulness every day, and it is the one thing that helps grow my happiness and makes me feel better. I want you so badly to try it because I want you to see how something so simple can make such a significant impact on how you feel. It is a simple practice. It just requires you!
I know sweet friend how busy you are; we all experience stress, we all experience moments of anxiety, and we all experience loss and heartache. Living is hard work but so worth it, but often we are stuck in the past or worried about the future that we aren't experiencing the here and now of what is happening.
This is why I practice mindfulness. I don't want any more time to slip away from me than already has. I want to savor every moment and be present...
