As we wrap up Season 2 for the summer, I wanted to leave you with a powerful meditation to help you connect with your heart and intuition.   Life can be so hectic, right?   It's easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of Life and ignore that quiet nudge from within.   Have you ever felt overwhelmed or confused, only to realize later that your heart was trying to tell you something all along?   This episode is all about...

  Do you ever find yourself lost in worry at 3 AM, your mind racing through all the what-ifs?   In a busy world, it’s easy to get caught up on an endless mental treadmill, always chasing the future and missing out on the magic happening right now.   It's so easy to get swept up in the chaos of technology—apps, texts, emails—not to mention every day LIFE responsibilities pulling at u…and forget to live in the moment.   Just the other night, I had a heart-to-heart with a friend over dinner about this very struggle.   She said something that really hit home:...

Ever find yourself saying, “Don’t do that,” “Stop,” “Be careful” a million times a day? 🙋‍♀️ Me too. I recently realized in a 5-minute art session with my kids, I gave 60 commands trying to control their every move. 😅   Why do we feel the need to control everything? The real magic happens in the mess. 🎨✨   What if we let go of our need to control, and instead, embraced the chaos? 🌟 Imagine the creativity and freedom we could unlock, not just for our kids, but for ourselves!   Join me in this week’s Mindful Pause podcast as we explore letting...

MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

Hi there,   This week, I taught self-love tools to my kids' Montessori class. Watching those little ones reminded me of the pure light and playfulness that still lives within each of us.   As adults, we often get caught up in responsibilities, challenges, and the pressure to be perfect and have it all together.   We’ve forgotten what “success” really means.   But deep down, that joyful, curious, and carefree child we once were is still there, waiting to be seen and heard.   In today’s podcast we’ll reconnect to your inner child and let your inner light shine....

hi there soul friend! today, I am celebrating and doing a big ole’ happy dance! I found my editor for my first book! After finishing my book draft in January, I’ve been paralyzed by fear of failure and disappointment for three months, and haven’t done anything with it.   Last month during my yoga retreat in Bali, I had a major breakthrough and haven’t felt this free in over three years! I’ve been working on befriending my fears to move through my problems towards possibly.   So, last week, I did this meditation that I share in EP 194 of the MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST, and then...

MINDFUL PAUSE PODCAST

Introduction: In today's episode, I dive into a personal story that many parents can relate to—a moment of losing my temper with my child. I’ll share the triggers that led to my outburst, the lessons I learned from my meditation practice, and how embracing our dark feelings can lead to personal growth and deeper connections with our loved ones. Plus, we'll explore reflection questions to help you integrate your own feelings of rage, grief, or sadness.   Personal Story: This morning, I yelled at my daughter, Hunter. It wasn't a proud mom moment. She was playing her harmonica loudly...

  Hey there, I was on a call with my coach a week before I left for my Bali retreat and feeling frazzled of what to focus on – my new website? marketing? Bali? "I want to feel f*ck!ng POTENT!" I blurted out For the past 2.5 years, I've been drowning in overwhelm and busyness, feeling like a diluted version of myself—lifeless, and frankly, dead inside. My coach posed a question that hit me like a bolt of lightning: "What does potency look like for you this week before you leave for your Bali retreat?" In that moment, as I placed my hand on my heart and sank into stillness, I realized...

🌟 Cultivate Happiness in 3 easy steps 🌟 Hey there! We all crave happiness, right? Whether it's snagging our dream job, amassing more of everything (money, stuff, experiences), or finding that soulmate, it all boils down to one universal quest - happiness. In today's Mindful Pause Podcast, we're diving deep into the art of being happy. Often, our joy gets blocked because we're fixated on the wrong thing – our EGO takes the wheel, focusing on the destination rather than relishing the journey. But what if true happiness isn't about what we want, but about giving from the heart to help us...

how are you doing? like...really?

If you're feeling less than sparkly, I hope this love notes helps you remember your True Self and your gifts that only you have.   

I’ve been on a 3-year quest to reconnect with my True Self - that innate expansive place inside each of us that is infinite possibilities, unbounded creativity and a portal to the Divine. 

It can feel unattainable, especially in our busy world telling us we’re not enough, but your true self is simply your true nature—the witness of life's flow and an integral part of that flow.

Personally, I’ve felt disconnected with my authentic voice and gifts, and just in the last 6 months have really started to shed the EGO (or what I call the Itty-bitty-Shitty-Committee) with the help of other teachers and finally blasted of my armor in Bali! 💣 (p.s. we ARE going back to Bali next year!!!)

I have never felt so FREE!

The ego is self-centered, seeks external validation and keeps us stuck in a limited perspective and scarcity.
Our spiritual journey is all about bridging the gap between the ego and the true self. 

The closer we are to our true selves, the less inner work we have to do. 

I hope today's episode of the Mindful Pause Podcast, helps you return home to your True Self and helps you remember ALL that you are!

Some highlights from our reflection:

  1. Consider how much you focus on the "I" self (the expansive, abundant perspective) versus the "me" self (the narrow, self-centered view). How does spending this energy serve you (or not).
  2. What brings you a sense of belonging within yourself and to the world around you.
  3. Explore what dream is tugging at your heart—what do you truly want to create and embody? And why?

Here's your invitation for thie week: Find stillness at least once a day. Whether it's through meditation or simply pausing to breathe, allow yourself that space to reconnect with your true self. Notice when the ego takes the reins and gently guide yourself back to center—your True Self.

In the silence and space, you’ll meet yourself there. ❤️

Lots of love friend, 
Audrey
