(Your free worksheet and hypnosis mp3 are at the bottom of this post.) Where does flow come from? And, is it possible to choose to get into flow? In case you have not heard of flow, let's start there. Flow is a state of being in which you are so present and absorbed in the [...]

Take a Hike #WednesdayWorksheet

During the weekend, I had a peaceful, solitary retreat to Walter's Falls. I stayed at an Inn overlooking the small waterfall and spent my days reading, studying, writing and mostly - hiking along the Bruce Trail! Walking along in fairy land is definitely a great place for a hike. And I definitely enjoyed the beauty [...]

I am Just Not “Feeling It” #MondayMeditation

Use the Snooze #MondayMeditation

Imagine starting each day calm, centered, energized. Alive in the moment and creating an experience, a ritual that feels positive, powerful and unhurried. Some of us leap out of bed each morning - already driven by anxiety for the day. We seem to get sucked into a reactive state for more and more of our [...]

My Wish for You is… Boredom #MondayMeditation

The antidote to anxiety is cultivating boredom. Allowing yourself to sit in deliberate boredom. This is not something we do in our culture today, and yet it is such a luxury as well as a powerful exercise of gathering your thoughts, spending time in the cortex and pre-frontal cortex and accessing those resources. Benefits - [...]

#MondayMeditation Grounding Meditation

How do we "arrive at the meditation"? Our brains are made to think. And yet, this can be frustrating to the beginner to meditation. They feel they should be "quieting the mind" and they notice that their mind is racing. It is the noticing of the mind racing and then gently guiding the mind to [...]

Body Scan Meditation #MondayMeditation

Focusing only on what is actually happening right now is a powerful skill. And a tough one to master. It sounds so simple and yet our brains are designed to be busy, alert and easily distracted. After all, those distractions might be a sabre tooth tiger, right? The formal practice of mindful meditation entrains our [...]
