cropped-meditationfinal-1.jpg

Good Morning, Meditators!  In this week’s episode we talk about mondaymorningmeditation.com being up and running.  We discuss how I want that site to be your one-stop shopping for all things meditation.  So go there and bookmark it!  Then I tell everyone about the Spirit, Mind and Body Expo presented by OPERA going on this week-end.  I will be doing psychic tarot card readings at the fair and I invite everyone to come out and partake in the good and positive energy created that week-end.  Then I mention I am in the market to travel to other places with this dog and pony show and would love the opportunity to do so.  Specifically a warmer climate as close to the equator as possible because it’s about to get friggin’ COLD up in here.  I even promise if it’s a warm beachy climate I’ll wear a thong!  Then we talk about the cool things happening at Sanctuary Studios.  (Monday Morning Meditation is getting a new logo!)  A lot of stuff we can’t reveal just yet but if all goes well beginning at the turn of the year we’ll be rolling out the good stuff slowly but surely.  Then I apologize for not getting an episode out to you last week.  But because I didn’t my spiritual evolution took a leap forward.  Which was AWESOME!  I talk about that all the while apologizing PROFUSELY for not getting an episode out last week.  Then we talk about the world of gaming and how gaming in and of itself while good practice for being on the front lines for the coming zombie apocolypse is also VERY meditative.  We give a few shout-outs to the OG games out there and to those who remember playing those arcade games.  Then we talk about intent in meditation and how gaming is a great entree into that world.  And then we get into the meditation itself which today is ALL about building up courage through meditation and the gaming world.

Today’s BEST. THING. EVER!!!  I love a story about kids helping people.  And so clearly this story is right up my alley.  If kids can go out of their way to help other people, then what’s our excuse?

Good Morning Meditators!  In today’s episode I run down a couple of announcements, a couple dates you should keep in mind, and a couple items of interest you should bookmark.  The we talk about why you haven’t had a new episode of Monday Morning Meditation in two weeks.  Then we talk about the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.  Then we talk about how the Universe works in REALLY mysterious ways.  Then we talk about how if you trust the Universe to reveal itself, in time it will.  Then we talk about nature and about how no matter what nature continues on.  And so should we.  And then we get into the meditation itself.

BONUS:  This is a FANTASTIC episode to listen to while in nature.  So if you can, get to a park, a forest, your backyard, anywhere you can be alone with nature and listen to this podcast.

Today’s BEST. THING. EVER!!!

grateful1

Today’s BEST. THING. EVER!!!  “If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.” – Meister Eckhart

 
Opportunities to be grateful happen each and every day.  It’s true.  From the magical to the mundane and everything in between, if we pay attention moments will happen that give us opportunity to be grateful.
 
Most of those moments pass us by because we’re distracted by other things.  Work commitments.  Familial commitments.  Social commitments.  Errands we have to run.  Phone calls we need to make.  E-mails we need to return.  Meetings we have to attend.  People, places, things and circumstances that pull us in every direction.  It’s easy to not be mindful of the little moments that are chances for us to live in thankfulness.
 
But how much happier, peaceful and more content individuals would we be if every time those moments happened, we stopped, observed it, and sent up a prayer of thankfulness for it.  Something to think about.
 
Check out the video below.  Then check out the website gratefulness.org.  And take some time today to be mindfully grateful for the big, little, mundane and transformative moments that happen in our lives everyday.  Have a FANTASTIC Friday, everyone!
 

GOOD NEWS!!!

GOOD NEWS!!! The U.S. Presidential election is over! And while that is good news in and of itself, I want to focus on something else. Regardless of who won – I absolutely refused to follow the election results last night and so I still don’t know who won – it’s important to realize the sun will still rise. The moon will still set. The stars will still rotate around this vast and great Milky Way. Nature has no interest in politics. Nature could care less about ideology. Nature has no interest in how divided or unified human beings are. Nature just continues to just be. It’s very important to remember that. Nature just is. It continues on. And so should we. Regardless of how happy or sad or angry or elated we are about the election results, we should really take a moment, breathe, and just be. I hope this video will help us all in finding that place of center, that place of calm, that place of peace. And just be. Have a great Wednesday, everybody!
