Walking Meditation

Urban trekking, desert hiking, and downward dog-ing are all amazing ways to tune into Spirit, discern truth, heed wisdom, and fully integrate body, mind, and soul. ❤️

There goes my crazy wife
With her cinnamon eyes
And her simple life

On a sunny day she’d rather
     walk than ride
With her hair pulled up
And her lengthy stride

The clouds of the north
And the clouds of the south
Are separated by her
     seldom ceasing smile

Her heart beats slow and steady
Pumping praises to her
     Prince of Peace

“Jesus, Jesus, Jesus
Intercede Jesus, Jesus
Plant a seed Jesus”

She tears for the searching souls
     that surround her
She walks on her knees

My husband wrote this sweet poem during our early married years. Walking was my moving meditation and prayer time, connecting me to nature and the Divine. Many years later, yoga opened my heart wide open and became my favorite form of moving meditation and connection! ❤️ Urban trekking, desert hiking, and downward dog-ing are all amazing ways…

Daily Reflection ☀️

This practice encourages us to shift our attention to the positive — to what is working in our lives — and to lift up in love and trust anything that concerns us. 💖

✨Love ~ Serve ~ Inspire✨

Our yoga practice provides the opportunity to draw inward, reflecting upon our lives, our stories, our shining moments, and our shadows. Our “mat” is a safe place to open, acknowledge, observe, learn from, and release tension in our body, mind, and spirit. We want to return to the place where we can be fully present and aware. All of our life experiences help create who we uniquely are, and, if we choose, propel us positively forward. The key is our time of personal, honest reflection.

Try book-ending your day with this simple routine:

1. Every morning when you wake up, deepen your beautiful breath of life and write down three things for which you are grateful.

2. Before going to bed, write down three things that went well, or you accomplished during the day. Ask, “what am I committed to for tomorrow?” Treat yourself to a restorative yoga pose while lengthening…

Resilience 💓

Be stronger than your pain. Use your pain for your platform — to bring healing and wholeness to yourself, and others. ♡

10% of life is what happens to you, and 90% is how you react or respond to it! ~ Charles R. Swindoll

RESILIENCE is the deep seeded quality that allows some people to be knocked down by life and come back stronger than ever. Rather than letting failure overcome them and drain their resolve, they find a way to rise from the ashes. Psychologists have identified some of the factors that make someone resilient, among them a positive attitude, optimism, the ability to regulate emotions, and the ability to see failure as a form of helpful feedback. Even after a misfortune, blessed with such an outlook, resilient people are able to change course and soldier on.

“Resilience may be an art, the ultimate art of living. At the heart of resilience is a belief in oneself — yet also a belief in something larger than oneself. Resilient people do not…

What new experience is knocking at your door? May you be open to new adventures and have a willingness to say, “Yes!” ♡

The Invitationby Oriah Mountain Dreamer

It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living.
I want to know what you ache for
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me how old you are.
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon…
I want to know if you have touched the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened by life’s betrayals
or have become shriveled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.

I want to know if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you…
