More Than Thankfulness



It is MORE than being Thankful! That might not sound like a popular statement, but if only being Thankful completed it for us, then we wouldn’t be having this conversation. We are encouraged to be thankful in this month of Thanksgiving. Don’t get me wrong,  there is absolutely nothing wrong with bringing our attention to what we are Thankful for. The issue arises when we put all our money on being Thankful and do not attend to some of our deeper issues. We have all likely been in that place where we really want to accomplish something, to get fit, lose weight, eat better, get more sleep, stop smoking,...  the list goes on. We decide that today is the day and we buckle down and get to business. We manage for a few days or weeks but at some point we are holding on with our finger nails. We have pushed hard to...

Meditation - Can I Really Do That?

Meditation - Can I Really Do That?
  How can I possibly sit still long enough and not think of anything?   I have heard this before and I probably thought it myself. How can I possibly clear my mind when I have so many things to do?   I’ll just start by saying there are many forms of meditation. Each type may or may not resonate with you.   The first form of meditation I started with was guided meditation. Instead of clearing my mind of all thoughts I just listen and follow along to the voice of the person leading the meditation. Sometimes it would take me on a journey or adventure but it always lead me to me. The words were my guide and I filled in the details. Creating my own story of me. Each journey would bring me insights and understanding about myself in my own language.   Each of us really...

So How the Heck do I Be Present?

So How the Heck do I Be Present?
Be Present! Your Power is in the Present! You only have Now! You may have heard all of these and more and it all sounds good but...  How the heck do I Be Present? Our minds are racing about what we just said or that conversation we are going to have.  Living and reliving moments, over and over again. The mind takes us there, to that place of being busy. Being Present feels very different than that. Lets use some examples. You are walking along and then stub your toe on something. In that moment, the only thing you can think of is your toe and how much it hurts. You are so present then because everything about that situation brings you to the present moment. Even briefly, you aren't thinking about the bills that are due or how what you ate for breakfast isn't digesting well. That is Being...

The Power of your presence.

In day to day life, we scurry from place to place, from thought to thought, from thing to thing. Thinking ahead. Learning from the past. Sometimes spinning in both. What if it just wasn't suppose to be that complicated? What if... Have you ever had that moment of clarity? Have you ever just had that gut feeling? You just knew. Really knew something. Somehow, you had an understanding that you just didn't know you were capable of! You knew something, and you just didn't have any idea where it came from. How could I know that? Well, that is you, in just that moment, being present!! Your power is in the present. Your true understanding is in the present. Everything is in the present moment. Feel your strength there. We can't effect the past, and the future is yet to come, so all we have is the present! We just...
