Body Love Now: a Guided Meditation and Visualization
Body Love Now: a Guided Meditation and Visualization
This is an extraordinary way to improve your body image as you hold gratitude and love; and as you awaken the power of manifesting and metamorphosis, and great healing. To truly love your body as it is, begins the journey into wholeness.  This meditation on how to love and appreciate your body comes at a time when we all may seek greater presence in the witnessing of our perfect nature as we are; through eyes of eternal gratitude rather than judgment and criticism. Even as you may seek to improve upon aspects of yourself, the secret is to appreciate and witness the perfection of your body as it is now.

The Miracle of Inspiration + Guided Meditation
The Miracle of Inspiration + Guided Meditation
Inspiration is what you feel through your senses; through taking in the beauty of life that you are willing to notice; and by allowing your heart open in delight, in wonder, in the deliberate choosing of your soul to be stirred; to cultivate presence, and to flow with the deliberate joy that you are witness to. In this meditation on inspiration; the sixth and final of this Meditation Series, we delve into one of the most pleasant human experiences.  Together with the previous week's episodes of hope, forgiveness, compassion, self-love, and peace,    inspiration illuminates the path for living from you heart; from living fluid; mind and heart aligned toward the sacred action that will manifest into form; birthing inspired thought paradigms into what creative pursuits become the beauty and inspirations of your life. Please enjoy this talk and meditation and have a look for the others in this very special series.  Namaste!

Yoga Nidra for Deep Relaxation and Healing
Yoga Nidra for Deep Relaxation and Healing
This practice of Yoga Nidra guides you into a state of deep relaxation, allowing the body and mind to heal and repair.   Practice this whilst doing your best to remain awake and attentive; following my guidance as you bring presence into each moment; as you hold awareness as we move through the parts of the body and as you choose a sankalpa or intention, inspired by your deepest wisdom. Yoga Nidra is a little-known ancient meditation technique explained as transformational sleep.  It evokes within you brainwave states similar to those in sleep, where the biology of your body is able to disengage from thoughts.

'Sati' (Mindfulness) Part Three: Words of Light and Love
'Sati' (Mindfulness) Part Three: Words of Light and Love
In Buddhism, Sati (from Pali: सति; from Sanskrit: स्मृति smṛti) is mindfulness or awareness. It is this spiritual or psychological faculty of indriya meaning: physical strength or ability of the senses, that forms an essential part of Buddhist practice. Sati is the path and the destination of awareness and of 'remembering'; as in to remember presence and attention.  In this final Part Three of 'Sati' - Mindfulness meditation, we begin with softening into our breath; to notice, and to hold observation.  Mindfulness is a practice of pure observation in the absence of judgment. From here, consider what words of light and love you may say to yourself with every in-breath and out-breath.  Continue to be watchful of all that you notice; to bring mindful attention to the words spoken inside your mind or perhaps aloud and to hold presence of this experience.  This is your state of pure awareness.  This is your path now to this moment and the next.  So well done! 💜 Much love!  Namaste!

In Buddhism, Sati (from Pali: सति; from Sanskrit: स्मृति smṛti) is mindfulness or awareness. It is this spiritual or psychological faculty of indriya meaning: physical strength or ability of the senses, that forms an essential part of Buddhist practice.

In this simple reminder of 'mindful kindness' we give our attention to the present moment, to our breath, and to what we become aware of - in the 'here and now'.  We are reminded of the power of deliberate kindness directed unto our self and to others - and how we can deliberately curate kindness. I hope that this meditation is uplifting for you and a great reminder of what is possible with intention and kindness.  Namaste!  xo

Meditate with Me (Full Length Version - 11min)
Meditate with Me (Full Length Version - 11min)
SOME HELPFUL NOTES ABOUT WHAT MAKES MEDITATION SO BENEFICIAL... Any type of deep, slow diaphragmatic breathing — during which you visualize filling up the lower part of your lungs just above your belly button like a balloon, and then exhaling slowly — is going to stimulate your vagus nerve, activate your parasympathetic nervous system, and improve your heart rate variability (HRV).  The brain interprets your diaphragmatic breathing as a sign to calm the body, and does so - quite instantly. Some people make time every day to practice diaphragmatic breathing as part of a yoga or mindfulness meditation routine.  Others take a deep and conscious breath when they catch themselves feeling anxious or "panicky," as a simple and immediate strategy for when they want to gain perspective, or wish to relieve some frustration.  All of these applications of diaphragmatic breathing are very helpful. Join me in this full length meditation, 'Meditate with Me' to experience a helpful meditation that you'll want to keep as a part of your regular practice.  Namaste!!

A Meditation to Heal Relationships
A Meditation to Heal Relationships
Relationships may be healed as you offer forgiveness to another, and as you offer forgiveness unto yourself. Your relationships may heal over a period of time, they may heal as you make peace with the situation, or the person even if you do not wish to continue in the relationship. Important to know is that you make the decision to heal a relationship and from this you choose a different path, one of infinite pace - of sacred inspired kindness and love, and one in which you release the past; release what you have been carrying about that has happened that no longer serves you. Please enjoy the ideas and inspiration offered in this meditation to help heal your relationships!  Namaste!  xo /// Music: Hammock 'mute angels'

A Meditation on 'P R a Y E R'
A Meditation on 'P R a Y E R'
Prayer is a form of direct communication with the divine - it is the beautiful way in which we access sacred wisdom, truth, and it is how we experience the most profound source of spiritual love. The blessings that we feel when we open our self to this sacred wisdom are paramount to the wisdom that we continue to have access to; that continues to be our measure of sacred trust - revealing the gift - that we are all connected the moment that we feel compassion and love towards another.  We create this connection - we open our self to it by our desire to relate; to care; to love. Prayer helps remind us of our oneness with all of life; that we all are truly a reflection of the love that resides within us.  Prayer helps open us to this sacred connection with the divine and the knowing that we are this incredible oneness and beauty of love unfolding - of love in service of others - of simply being love. Please join me in this sacred meditation on prayer. all my love, dorothy Music Credit: Stellardrone, 'Galaxies'

Listen to the Wisdom of Your Heart
Listen to the Wisdom of Your Heart
In this meditation you learn how to go within for answers - for truth - as a way of discerning what is 'right' and 'best' for you in any given moment. We begin with awareness of our sacral chakra since the sacral chakra is associated with the realm of emotions. It’s the center of our feelings and sensations.  Opening your sacral chakra allows you to “feel” the world around and in you.  As such, it’s an important chakra at the foundation of your feeling of well-being. Next we move to the area of our heart centre (chakra) - to feel the beautiful sacred energy here and to connect with this pure consciousness - to ask and sense the answers of our deepest inner wisdom.  This is a wonderful 'heart opening' meditation as well, reminding us of our ability to connect and relate within, and to experience the wisdom of our inner knowing.  So beautiful indeed!! xo dorothy

Choosing How I Feel: a Guided Meditation
Choosing How I Feel: a Guided Meditation
Learn and experience how to change your current state of being into one of your choosing - and to maintain this new state with ease! We begin by first noticing how we presently feel and our felt sensations without "needing" to change them.  We are mindful - attentive to what we notice - without judgement.  Then, in full acceptance with how we feel - we discover the process for changing our state of being first by deciding - using the present tense - to state your desired way of feeling & being.  We manifest this new state by feeling how we want to feel now - expressing our desires using the present tense and as we connect with the energy of our heart centre.   Use this meditation often to help you feel the way you truly want :)) Namaste everyone! xo

'Balance' is a state of being that we choose. In this Meditation, discover how to mindfully assess what is happening around you and still focus your mind on what you are choosing to focus on. Let the spaces (pauses) between the inhalation and the exhalation be what you bring your attention to. The space between your inhalation and exhalation is the space in which you find and live in 'balance'. Notice how beautiful and easy it is to bring your attention back into the present moment - and to how you feel - now.

Calmness in Mind and Body
Calmness in Mind and Body
This is a wonderful meditation for quietening our mind when our mind is racing - when our thoughts are scattered - for refocusing our attention, and when we want to have clarity of mind, and calmness in mind and body. One of the simplest things we can do to create calmness is to focus our attention inward. As you bring your awareness inward onto your breath you begin to cultivate stillness, focus, attention onto a single thing. Our mind begins to slow, we begin to feel calmer; we realize we can gentle change how we feel by paying attention to how we breathe.

Mindfulness of Breath in Nature
Mindfulness of Breath in Nature
A simple mindfulness experience with sounds of nature to help you practice the focus of your mind onto your breath, and to witness your ability to be present in 'this' moment. After experiencing this meditation, consider going outdoors where you can practice the art of being present with your breath and also aware of the sounds you hear in your environment; noting that we can be aware of sounds, and yet we can continue to hold our focus where we choose. You may also wish to practice going back and forth between holding attention onto your breath, and then in nature. This helps you to gain greater control over your mind and where you have chosen to place your attention. namaste! love, dorothy
