Silence is Golden

silence

 

Silence is golden

or so it is written

still your body-

quiet your mind-

take a journey deep inside

connect with the sweet divine within-

release all sorrow, worry and fear

open your heart to something greater than yourself

Breathe in sweetness and love,

exhale stress, anxiety and doubt

You are a strong, beautiful and blissful being

Share peace and love with the world

Spread your wings and fly-

Shine your light for everyone to see-

the journey begins with you and me

I have to believe deep in my heart that we shall overcome someday. To do less would be to die before I die.

An Endless Wave of Transformation

As I’m writing this post,  still can’t believe that it has been two years since I’ve even visited or checked on things here.  So amazing how quickly time can slip away and that it seems to move at a faster and faster clip, especially when your not paying attention.

There have been so many changes in my life that I don’t even know where to begin!  Trying to recall  my last published topic of discussion.  Believe it was a mixture of the transition into yoga teacher training and always having an attitude of gratitude.

Taking the step into yoga teacher training was by far one of the best decisions in my life as well as the most nourishing and beneficial for myself as a whole.  An opportunity to learn, grow and blossom.  To develop new friendships and gain new sisters.   Wow…. just realized that I received my yoga certification two years ago…. feels like only yesterday.

Since then my days have been filled with teaching, friendships, and just an overall enjoyment of life.  Was grateful to have another teacher training opportunity with Manju Jois, which again was an experience that will always resonate in my heart.  A week of learning, as well as understanding on a deeper level about yoga and how the body works.  A fun and exciting time to say the least.

On another note, I lost a dog to cancer which was one of the saddest days.  If anyone has dogs, they understand they are family and you build a bond with them.  They are loving, loyal, affectionate and can be characters at times.  When you loose an animal it’s like losing a member of your family.

It’s been an interesting journey and every day is a new experience.  I have learned to be grateful for every breath as well as each day that I can enjoy this life!  There are times when life isn’t full of sunshine and ice cream, but those are the days where you take a few extra breaths and say to yourself,  this will pass.  I have to admit, sometimes the rough days are the ones where the paper bag comes in handy, because I might hyperventilate.  (just kidding)

Gratitude

May the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you, and the pure and divine light within you, guide your way on, now and always.

Grateful for Everything

Create and Attitude of Gratitude All Day Long

The secret to happiness and finding the enduring joy we all seek is Thanksgiving-the simple act of continually giving thanks.  To realize wonderful positive outcomes, up to and including seeming miracles, do one thing:  Show gratitude all day long.  Seeing everything in a new light, through a refreshing prism of love and appreciation, imparts a deep inner well of peace, calm and joy, making us feel more alive.

We can feel that way every day, in every aspect of life, awaking each morning excited to create the day ahead and enthusiastic about each moment and then falling asleep at night embracing a profound feeling of gratitude for all the good we know and have.  Happiness is contagious and becomes an upward spiral of joy naturally shared with others.

Start today by launching a daily gratitude journal.  This single action, the simplest and quickest way to get results, will foster a habit geared to change everything forever.  It fills up our love tank, sparks success and benefits everyone.  To embrace better relationships, health, clarity, life and tangible and intangible wealth:

  • Set a daily time for journal writing.
  • Pick a handful of things that prompt gratitude that day.  Perhaps begin with people that support you in some way.  Everything counts, from expressions of beauty to basic conveniences.  Eventually the daily list will grow, generating the joy of gratitude at ever-higher levels.
  • It’s important to write with love and joy, because such feelings create your world.  Even if something’s a work in progress, like encouraging steps in a relationship, focus on what makes you feel good and want more of and you’ll start seeing more evidence of them.
  • Elaborate in detail about a particular thing that earns extra gratitude.  This carries more benefits from intense feelings than creating a list.  When we see how blessed we are with what we already have, it creates more of what we are grateful for, generating and endless cycle of gratitude.
  • Take notice of the surprises and little miracles that occur, and be sure to make note of them to evoke an even stronger level of awe, and gratitude.
Robert Emmons, Ph.D., of the University of California-Davis, a leading authority in researching the science of gratitude and its impact on well-being, instructs his study participants, “Be aware of your feelings and how you ‘relish’ and ‘savor’ this gift in your imagination.  Take the time to be especially aware of the depth of your gratitude.”  In other words, don’t hurry through this exercise like a to-do list.
An all- day-long attitude of gratitude ramps up our awareness of life’s pleasures.  It takes an already good life to a whole new zone of zest.

Good morning friends!  It’s an amazing universe of information-the internet.  Was looking for images and quotes to wish you all a Happy Tuesday and found this!  Couldn’t help to post because it is just unique and have to admit, pretty hilarious!  Dogs are amazing, but I’m pretty sure my dogs could never pull this off.  But possibly could be an interesting experiment….hmmmm.

So Happy Tuesday everyone and to all the doggies….continue to be awesome!
