How To Stop Boredom Eating? Try This Hunger Meditation.

Hunger meditation

I don’t know about you, but I spend a lot of my daily hours foraging for food. It’s either thinking about food, thinking about my next or previous meals, wondering when I will get to eat next, and where I will eat next (have you ever tried a hunger meditation?).

It’s all related to hunger and food. A lot of times, I have realized I am not actually really hungry when I eat, but, I am eating, because I am bored, or lonely, or upset.

I’m sure you have done this before as well. Not listened to your bodies’ cues for hunger, but eaten just for the sake of eating. The opposite is true as well.

A lot of times, I am starving, or at least my body is, but my mind is too busy working or distracted, and unable to figure out that it is time to eat. That’s when I need to be more connected to my hunger cues, rather than less.

How Many Things In Your Life Are You Grateful For?

Gratitude Meditation

Do you live a privileged life? I can guess that you do. How can I guess that so easily? Well, you are probably sitting in a comfortable chair, sipping on some beverage, on a laptop, or a tablet, reading this article on the internet. (Have you ever tried a gratitude meditation?)

If that isn’t a privileged life, I don’t know what is. There are a hundred things you have that millions of people on this planet don’t. But, feeling gratitude isn’t about feeling bad about the fact that we are better off than others. That’s not we are doing here.

Gratitude is all about focusing on the positive things in our lives. There are so many positive things that happen on a daily basis with us. Hundreds of them, in fact.

But, as human beings, we have a laser-like focus on the one or two negative things that might happen.

Are You Feeling Like An Imposter In Your New Endeavour?

  • Reading time:3 mins read

When I first start anything, it might be an online business or a new meditation practice, I always feel like I am the worst in that specific field. I am the only one in the whole world who has no idea what she's doing (have you ever tried an imposter syndrome meditation?). According to Wikipedia, Impostor syndrome (also known as impostor phenomenon or fraud syndrome or the imposter experience) is a concept describing high-achieving individuals who are marked by an inability to internalize their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud." As you can see, Imposter Syndrome affects high achievers. And it affects them when they are doing a lot of things outside of their comfort zone. Imposter syndrome crops up often in the entrepreneurs that I meet on a daily basis. This is because they are always working outside of their comfort zone, and that makes them feel like they are constantly having to perform at a…

What Does Your Creative Muse Look Like?

  • Reading time:3 mins read

Recently, I have started communing and chatting more vehemently and outwardly with my Muse. She’s been in my life for decades now. But only recently have I really started talking about this not-so-imaginary friend and guide that has been helping me with my creative projects for the past 20 years. I couldn’t do without her, and I would definitely have a hard time writing the thousands of words I write every day without her by my side.

I have been reading a lot of books by best-selling authors on Creativity who have been espousing the value of their own Muse. Stephen King’s On Writing, and Elizabeth Gilbert’s Big Magic are just two that come to mind.

Every single creative person on the planet has a Muse whether they are aware of them or not. These guides are forever helping us on our creative path. Guiding us off the cliffs that we sometimes get on, wanting to commit creative suicide, and helping us back onto the path of creating, creating, and more creating. (more…)

Do You Have An Anxious Heart? Try Out This Meditation

  • Reading time:5 mins read

If you know me at all, or have read any of my other posts, you know I am a serious connoisseur of meditation. I believe in my heart-of-hearts that meditation is a cure-all. If everyone on this planet meditated, it would eliminate disease, war, poverty, and any of the other evils that ail the human race. But everyone doesn’t meditate, and I am on this quest to get people to meditate. In this quest, I have created this funky new meditation. Let me explain how it came about.

In my opinion, if you have an itch and it needs to be scratched, a lot of times you can’t find the solution to the itch in the market place. 2 out of 3 times you will be able to find a solution that fits okay, but sometimes you won’t be able to find a solution at all.

I have an anxious heart. Whenever I am stressed or scared or feeling any kind of emotion, it starts thumping about like a rabbit in a barrel (just made this up, I call poetic license). I didn’t want to numb the thumping. I wanted to hear it beat, and calm it down by talking to it. Instead of feeling so out of sorts, because my heart is feeling so anxious, I decided I would try out different things to calm it down. (more…)

Money Mindset Issues? Meditate To Bring Abundance Into Your Life.

  • Reading time:4 mins read

Having hung out with people of all statures, I realize that the only different between people with money and without is their mindset. It is actually fascinating to me, to hang out with really rich people, vs. not-so-rich people in the same day. The difference is quite stark. There is no distinguishing between the two. Anyone who wants to become a millionaire or abundant in anyway needs to work on their mindset before anything else. It has been said, that you become a millionaire on the inside first, and then the money shows up on the outside automatically. I absolutely believe this adage. If your mindset is screwed up, there is no way in hell you are ever going to bring abundance into your life, no matter what mantras you sing, or what sage you burn. Have Money Mindset Issues? The main thing you need to start off with, is what is your current mentality about money. Some mainstream thoughts about money…

Is Pain Killing You? Meditate To Diffuse The Hell Out Of It

  • Reading time:4 mins read

Recently, I got this pain in my right shoulder blade. It was debilitating. I couldn’t even get out of bed without my back spasming. This was a recurrent pain, so as usual, I tried to ignore it, and get on with business. I hoped it would go away on its own. Of course, it did not. It was trying to send me a message and until I got that message, it wouldn’t leave.

I decided to spend a few meditation sessions in the morning (I meditate for 30 minutes every morning as soon as I wake up) on talking to the pain and asking it why it keeps on coming up again and again. Sounds odd, right? I know, I thought it sounded weird as well. But I was getting sick and tired of being so healthy in other ways, but having this debilitating pain every few months.

Why does it come up again and again?

What is it trying to bring into my life? (more…)
