52: Meditation for Self-Study
52: Meditation for Self-Study
Who am I? What do I believe? What is it like for me to feel, think, and act? Do my actions align with my values? We can begin answering these questions when we take time to be present with the Self. You are not your thoughts. You are the thinker of your thoughts. You are not your feelings. You are the one who feels.  Join me for today's meditation on tuning into your inner world and exploring what it is like to be you today. Book mentioned: Yamas & Niyamas by Deborah Adele.

Nonattachment: letting go of the clinging to something or someone NOT the letting go of the enjoyment of something or someone. Nonattachment is about enjoying the present moment.

Difficult emotions can be extremely overwhelming. We often try to avoid, ignore, repress, or even numb so that we don't have to feel.

32: The Distracting Mind - A Noting Meditation
32: The Distracting Mind - A Noting Meditation
Meditation is difficult, especially if you've never practiced before. There is a sense of wrestling with the mind to stay focused and present. The mind wanders off and gets distracted. In today's meditation you will learn a technique called noting, inviting a sense of separation between you and your thoughts/feelings. Join me today for a simple guided meditation on an intro to noting, helping you to tame the distracted mind. -- To sign up for Mindfulness for the Holidays please visit www.sacredgarden.cc/Mindfulness -- If you've enjoyed today's episode please follow and share it with others.

31: Mountain Hike Meditation
31: Mountain Hike Meditation
I like that a hike up a mountain can mirror our experiences through life - we pick a path, and we begin moving. Sometimes the path is easy, other times it is strenuous and difficult. We get to decide to enjoy the journey - the views, the challenges, the rests. Or we get to decide to be miserable throughout it.⁠ Either way, you keep moving. Eventually you arrive at the top where you take in a magnificent view of the world beneath you and the hike becomes well worth it.⁠ Join me for today's guided meditation as you visualize hiking up a mountain - enjoying the journey and the destination.⁠ -- To sign up for Mindfulness for the Holidays please visit www.sacredgarden.cc/Mindfulness -- If you've enjoyed today's episode please follow and share it with others.

Living with integrity can be extremely challenging. It requires us to be who we claim to be.

What does it mean to live a balanced life? Between work, sleep, friends, family, rest, etc., life can feel overwhelming, complicated, and out of balance. We each have a unique sense of what a balanced life looks like. Some people find their center with more social events and some people find their center with more time outdoors. In today's episode, we talk about a balanced life. I invite you journal or reflect during today's exercise on what a balanced life looks like for you, and the changes you may begin to implement today to find your center.  . .

Anticipatory Anxiety occurs when we begin to feel stress, worry, or fear about something that hasn't happened yet.

14: The Anxious Self
14: The Anxious Self
As humans we experience some level of anxiety - fear, worry, stress. Anxiety can be extremely overwhelming, so we often find ourselves trying to avoid it. We try to not think about it or find ways to distract ourselves from. Doing this however, increases anxiety. We even become anxious about being anxious. Over the next 5 weeks I will be inviting you to meditate on anxiety. For this first meditation, we will identify the anxious self, or the part of you that experiences anxiety. Creating separation from your core self and your anxious self allows you to be present with anxiety in a calm, loving manner.⁠ . Have a meditation request or would like to schedule an appointment?

13: The Core Self
13: The Core Self
"Who am I?" You may find yourself asking this question and coming up with many different answers. The answers come from the many layers within our Self. There is the self that seeks to protect, the self that seeks to avoid, the self that seeks to soothe. Internal Family Systems Theory (IFS) explains that we have many "parts" to our Self. A part is every experience that we have: every thought, every feeling, every sensation, every urge, etc. These parts are broken down into three categories. Beneath all these parts lies the Core Self.  Join me for today's talk & meditation where I dive into these three categories, followed by a meditation on the Core Self. Grab a notebook and a pen if you like to journal as you begin to explore some thoughts on your Core Self. . . Have a meditation request or would like to schedule an appointment?

10: A Meditation on Waiting
How often are you standing in line at the grocery store, desiring for the line to move faster so you can go home and move on to the next thing? Or stuck in traffic, frustrated? How often do you desire to be away from the here and now? This meditation offers a way to practice being present and training the mind to be in the Now rather than drifting off to the future. Training the mind to be present helps reduce anxiety and depression and increase peace and joy. . . “Time isn’t precious at all, because it is an illusion. What you perceive as precious is not time but the one point that is out of time: the Now. That is precious indeed. The more you are focused on time—past and future—the more you miss the Now, the most precious thing there is.” -Eckhart Tolle . . Have a meditation request?

5: Gratitude for Mothers
5: Gratitude for Mothers
Happy Mother's Day!  In this meditation we will be meditating with a sense of gratitude on mother, or a mother, your mother, perhaps the mother within you, or even for all mothers. For many people mother's day can be challenging for a number of reasons, so if you decide to do today's meditation, we are focusing on a sense of gratitude. I will encourage you to take a moment before starting to decide who you want to reflect a sense of gratitude for. This may be a time for you to meditate on your own mother, but may it is the mother within you. Maybe it's a woman who has been like a mother to you, perhaps a fellow friend who is a mother, or maybe you meditate on the Divine qualities of motherhood.  . . . connect with me: www.sacredgarden.cc FB/IG: sacredgardenwellness

3: Staying Present through your Senses Meditation
Have you ever been spending time with someone and they point something out in your environment while asking, "did you see that?" And you realize that if they did not point it out, you would never have noticed. You're busy day-dreaming about your to-do list or what you're making for dinner tomorrow. Sometimes our schedules become overwhelming and we are spread too thin. We are rushing around from one thing to another that we completely miss the here and now. Tune in for this short meditation to stay present. . . Connect with me: website: www.sacredgarden.cc FB/IG: sacredgardenwellness
