What If This Is Heaven by Anita Moorjani

I recently finished reading What If This Is Heaven? by Anita Moorjani. I learned a few things that I would like to share.

Loving Yourself is the Most Important Thing

We aren’t taught a whole lot about self-love. We are taught how to survive in the “real world” and to be a good person and be good to other people. The importance of being good to ourselves or even how to be good to ourselves isn’t stressed as an essential part of being human in our society. Even though it is the most important thing. continue…

Meditation Mondays: A Guided Meditation To Help You Sleep

Sometimes sleep happens naturally, other times our minds don’t want to turn off. Whether we are worried or excited about the upcoming day or still worrying about the past, if our mind isn’t shutting down, it makes it hard to drift off to sleep.

I don’t always meditate before bed, but sometimes I need a reminder that it’s okay to let my mind turn off for the night. When I do, I turn to this bedtime meditation: continue…

Be a Leader

We are all leaders. This is a message I have probably been hearing my entire life, but haven’t taken to heart until recently.

In a recent Facebook live stream, Deepak Chopra provided us with this call to action:

“We can be leaders in our own lives. In our families, in our communities, in our country, in our world.”

I am SO glad we still have Deepak Chopra with us as a spiritual leader. We need his intelligence and wisdom now more than ever.

Dr. Chopra calls us to do what I’m sure many of us have already been feeling over the past few days: to be leaders in our own lives. continue…

The Day I Stopped Being Passive

I have never been “into” politics. It is not a sport to me. I never felt incredibly passionate about one party or the other.

A Guided Meditation for Beginners

I like to meditate in silence, with my meditation timer app keeping track of the time. But if you have never meditated before, starting out in silence can feel overwhelming.

Last night I happened to be looking for a new meditation on YouTube, and I came across Louise Hay’s Your Healing Light Meditation.

If you are not familiar with Louise Hay, she is one of the most amazing women on the planet. And she recently turned 90 years young! A high school dropout, she discovered the mind-body connection later in her life, and went on to found the self-help publishing house Hay House in her sixties.

I have listened to many of her books on audio from the library, and always love hearing her voice. The self-confidence, self-assurance, and most importantly, self-love, ooze from her voice.

The Healing Light Meditation is simply beautiful. This meditation would be great for someone who has never meditated before but is curious about what meditation is all about. continue…
