How Can You Become Centered, Especially When You Are Upset?

How Can You Become Centered, Especially When You Are Upset?

When you are centered, it’s easier to see the world through a happier and more peaceful lens. You may experience greater patience and understanding, feelings of kindness and unconditional love toward all beings, unshakeable inner peace and joy that are independent of what is going on around you, and a sense of deeply ‘knowing’ your true nature as a spiritual being: infinite, and eternal.

Sleeping While Meditating – Is It Okay?

Sleeping While Meditating - Is It Okay?

“Is it OK to fall asleep when I meditate?” I get this question a lot, and the answer is… yes, and no.

BUT… don’t call it meditation. Call it a nap.

How To Swap Negativity For Happiness

Living A Positive Life

When you think positive, happy, loving thoughts, you make different choices than when you think depressing, negative, anguishing and despairing thoughts…

Think about a time when you felt sad or angry – such as your lover left you, or you didn’t achieve a goal that was important to you… and think about the choices you made in the heat of the moment. Chances are pretty good that you were very reactive. You felt that the world was conspiring to knock you down, and all you could do is fend off the attacks… or maybe you felt that you were unloved and unwanted, so why bother even trying to find someone new…

Have You Tried The 7 Coins A Day Challenge?

The 7 Coins a Day Exercise - Stop yourself before you give in to a self-deflating habit

Having a physical reminder of a concept helps it sink in more powerfully. Imagine having a reminder to keep you on track with your goals… or to catch yourself when you’re in misalignment with your values… or to stop yourself before you give in to a self-deflating habit.

Reminders help build awareness. When you’re focused on performing this exercise, you naturally become more aware of your thoughts, words and actions – which, if they are habits, usually don’t get much attention.

Do you often feel inferior to others? Do you read the magazines and think, “This person is so much better than me…”? Do you see others as superior to you just because they have the spotlight, or because you have told yourself that they are superior? Do you see someone who is better looking, fitter, more successful, in a happy relationship, wealthier… and feel inferior?
