Hello my friends!
I’m aware that it’s been a while since I’ve written - but I’ve been thinking about you all in the meantime. A lot, actually.
You - the people that I’m here to serve. The ones that resonate with what I write. The ones that long for same things that I do. And maybe I haven’t said it enough yet, but… I’m so glad you’re here!
The last couple of months has been a period of going inward for me. I had some major shifts in my personal life at the end of last year - the end of a long-term relationship, for one. And I could feel that I needed to hit the ‘reset’ button.
I know you can relate to this from one time or another in your life.
Times of transition and change can be hard, and unfortunately, we humans have a propensity to think that somehow we are doing it ‘wrong’. Or that because we have lost or ended something, that we have regressed in some way.
I’m so grateful, however, that this time, I’ve been able to handle this life change with more grace and ease than I could have ever imagined possible.
I’ve had a lot of friends and family asking how I can seem so calm and ‘good’ in the wake of this break-up.
The truth is that I can attribute it, in large part, to the meditation practice that I’ve built in the last few years.
I don’t say this to brag, but simply to shed more light on the power of these practices.
We all experience loss and pain and change of all sorts in our lives. But often a great deal of the pain and struggle we feel is because we think we should be able to control how and when things happen.
And life gets SO MUCH EASIER when we let go of the illusion that we are in control.
We also stubbornly resist the emotions that are present, rather than just letting ourselves experience them and pass through us.
This is where meditation is an absolute powerhouse.
Meditation slowly re-patterns our brains to observe and be curious, rather than judge and shame and react.
It gives us WAY more capacity to recognize and be with our emotions, rather than pushing them down (cuz that NEVER results in therapy).
It helps us tap into the natural, never-ending source of our well-being and joy.
It helps us make meaning of tragedy and loss, rather than be a victim to it.
And I’m not saying I’m now perfect at these things - there’s no such thing! We’re humans.
But my sincere wish for you is to experience the sense of connection, joy and peace that occurs when you get into a loving relationship with your WHOLE self.
Between my nursing career, coaching and leadership training, and meditation programs, I’ve slowly developed my own way of meditating, that, while probably not completely unique, is definitely super powerful.
Using a combination of traditional meditation, mindfulness, the power of intention (aka manifesting), and embodiment practices, I want to help you find levels of presence with yourself and your body that you didn’t even realize were possible!
And I’m getting ready to share it with you.
Over the next few days, I’ll be sending out a few more emails about this, so stay tuned!
I’m so excited to witness what becomes possible in YOUR life.
Send me a message and let me know how meditation has shifted the way you go through 'tough times'. As always, I would LOVE to hear from you.
With love and gratitude,
