MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

Hey there,   Feeling the lunar vibes this week? I sure was!   The full moon had me in a bit of a funk for about 24 hours! Everything seemed to be a trigger, from kid tantrums to everyday transitions. I was moody and edgy, definitely not the best version of myself.   But, here's the kicker: I stumbled upon a game-changer – a one-minute daily self-love check-in.   It's been my go-to for reining in my mood swings and staying grounded in what truly nourishes my mind, body and soul.   Curious to join the 1-minute self-love check-in? Have a listen to this week's episdoe...

MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

Today is a simple mantra: “one tweak each week”   Last week, I started working out again (after not really moving my body much for GULP, 4 YEARS!). I had 2 babies and a pandemic and a move/remodel. But my baby is almost 3 years old, and there’s no excuses, plus I feel like crap!   So I signed up for Orange Theory Fitness and made a commitment to myself to work out for 5 days. Last week was my first week, but I ate like crap - we’re talking 5 indulgent meals a day at about 3000 calories. So, although I was working out like an athlete, I was eating like a lumberjack!   I...

MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

Today’s episode is about completion.    HUH? What does this have to do with self-love or mindfulness?    When we don’t complete our tasks, it chips at our self worth. If we have a running list of all the things we need to do, this ever growing list can feel overwhelming, anxiety inducing and stressful.   Completion of our tasks builds self worth, confidence and relieves stress.   Journal:  What projects or tasks have I left unfinished? (this could be as simple as finishing reading a book, or sending out an email to a larger project or dream) What...

MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

I just finished my book! Well, my 2nd draft of this book (that I started 11 years ago!?, and just recently picked it back up). Life is always speaking to us…are we listening? In today’s intention and reflection, I’ll guide you to look back at your challenges and see what Life was trying to teach you. What are you experiencing NOW that you can learn from?

LUXURY + ABUNDANCE show art LUXURY + ABUNDANCE

MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

This week’s podcast is about giving yourself permission to experience more abundance and luxury AND to do something that feels luxurious each day.  Jake and I finally celebrated my birthday night out in a luxurious hotel nearby. We went to dinner and sat by the hotel fire and connected. It was a Monday and we arrived to the hotel at 5pm and left at 9:30am for work, but that one night felt very luxurious. Maybe it’s because we haven’t had a night away from the kids in 4 years or maybe it’s because I’m a mom of a 2 and 5 year old, and “luxury” these days is removing my toe...

Tune into your Truth (meditation) show art Tune into your Truth (meditation)

MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

Last week I had the opportunity to be a guest speaker at a weekend long writers retreat, and you know what I learned?   We are not alone in our fears and we have the same universal desires to feel seen, connected, signifiant.    What’s the ONE thing that gets in the way?   Our Itty-Bitty-shitty-Committee!   I’m writing about it in my book. I speak and teach alot about quieting it? WHY?   Because if we listen to it, it will sabotage our dreams, demolish our self worth and just keep us stuck in scarcity and fear.   In this week’s MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST...

The ONLY question you need to ask yourself show art The ONLY question you need to ask yourself

MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

Setting a new year’s goal, resolution or an intention can get complicated. Our mind wants to figure it all out, work backwards to make our goal happen.   In today’s meditation, you just need to ask your heart ONE question to gain crystal clear, potent clarity.   💫 What do I want? 💫   Resist the need to ask Why, When or How questions right now. These tend to be answered from our mind to try to figure out a solution or plan.   Just ask: What do I want most? And How do I want to feel?   Let yourself get quiet and listen to the whisper of your heart.  ...

Usually when we’re happy, it’s because we received what we wanted.

 

We’re grateful AFTER something has happened to us.

 

But doing it this way (with cause then effect) is fleeting because it keeps us chasing the next thing that promises to bring us the elevated  feeling we want to feel.

 

What would happen if instead of waiting

to feel joy when something good happens to us,

we consciously choose to feel joy now

despite what we’re experiencing?

 

Instead of cause and effect,

we choose to affect the cause

 

This isn’t about an affirmation of an attitude of gratitude.

 

It’s really about doing the hard mindful work to really embody gratitude and all of the other high emotions you want to feel now - no matter what.

 

Doing the active inner work helps us shift our perspective and energy. 

 

When we change our energy, we change our life

 

On this week’s MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST,

let’s change our perspective of the experience, to change our experience of it.

 

LISTEN HERE.

 

I hope the last 4 weeks of exploring SAT CHIT ANANDA helps you realize this is not an unattainable concept, but one where we can learn the knowledge, put it into action, and through consistent practice of being conscious, living in our truth and choose joy now, we begin to embody this wisdom.
