A Simple “Grounding” Technique

I’m sure we’ve all had the experience of finding ourselves feeling spacey, unfocused, scattered…

Harmonize Your Brilliance

As I had my morning cup of coffee outside, I pondered these words.

“A city on a hill cannot be hidden.”  Jesus of Nazareth

Why did I wake up thinking this?

For some reason, you keep playing that mean little thing back in your head, thinking of things you could have said.

But now that you’ve thought of what you could have said, you realize what they could have said…

Well, now you’ve got to retort to that, because they can’t have the last word, can they?

Change Your Reality… By Talking To Yourself

Whether you’re aware of it or not, you’re always talking to yourself.

“I’d better do this right”

“I hope no one sees me.”

“Why can’t I just be happy?”

This self-talk is usually just below the surface of awareness.

During our mini-meditation session, we learned a simple, short way to quieten those voices, but why not use them?
