One of the main questions I get all the time is, "How do I turn off my mind?" This is interesting to me because, through my education and practice I know that this is an exercise in futility. Turning the mind off is impossible.
So as you can see, the first question we need to ask ourselves is not "How do I turn my mind off?" but rather "How can I access peace, quiet, clarity and focus?"
This process begins by first focusing on asking ourselves, "Where is my mind?" Many people will respond with, "It's in my brain" or "My mind is my thoughts or my consciousness." Take a moment right now to just focus on your breathing. Calm your breathing and think about that question, "Where is my mind?" What is your answer?
We've all heard the term "global peace" in the media. It seems everyone is talking about it, yet no one has figured out a way to make global peace a reality. In the video below, I discuss ways I believe we can each do our own little part in creating global peace within our world.
Just the other day someone asked me why the work we do with transformation has to be so hard. I really took this question to heart because it was something that I had asked myself from time to time as well. On a recent trip to Maui, I decided to answer this question with a short video.
This week’s Monday Meditation focused on calming the mind and body and releasing those things that are not serving our higher purpose. Pausing for Power each day allows us to let go of the things in our lives that bring us stress or pain…the things that overwhelm us. You owe it to yourself to spend time in a state of relaxation and calmness so healing and growth can occur. When you feel complete, adequate, enough, you attract more of those things in your life. This meditation time is when we honor ourselves and become focused, centered, and committed to what we want to manifest in our lives for the coming week. We release the worry, fear, and doubt that holds us back from reaching our goals and tap into the power within us that will be a driving force for the week ahead.
