Where Attention Goes, Energy Flows
Where Attention Goes, Energy Flows
In this meditation, you will be guided through a simple practice designed to remind you that where your attention goes, your energy flows. We will create what is known as an 'energy ball,' so that you can deeply connect to this, on an experiential level. In time, this knowing will inspire you to mindfully direct your attention, choosing thoughts and actions carefully, so that you are aligned with whatever you are seeking to energetically manifest in your life.

The Staircase Breath
The Staircase Breath
This meditation is a simple, soothing, focused breathing practice that will help you learn a new way to quickly shift your state of mind. To begin, we will become aware of our natural breath, and then we will begin to breathe consciously - expanding the breath to create a 3 part inhalation - abdomen, chest and upper chest, followed by a long, smooth exhalation. *With this practice, it is important to go at your own pace, so there is no straining around the breath*

Awareness of Sounds
Awareness of Sounds
When we are beginning a meditation practice, we tend to have the idea that sounds are a distraction, and we desire a perfectly tranquil, or soundproofed setting for our spiritual endeavors. Well...get over it! Learning how to be with the present moment, exactly as it is IS meditation. If sounds are part of that present moment, use them as an object of focus to help turn your attention inward.

Gratitude Meditation
Gratitude Meditation
It's so easy to wish that our lives were different - that we had a different job, lived in a different place or had a different partner. This is so often our pattern - break free of that pattern by acknowledging it when it arises and consciously cultivating gratitude.
