Getting Grounded

Being outside is one of the greatest and fastest ways for me to get grounded.  Stepping outside and feeling life around me immediately brings me into the present moment.

I recently had major hip surgery and I noticed that as the days got closer, I opted for more and more time in nature.  My soul knows what she needs to stay calm and connected.

A jaunt through heaven on Earth–the Garden of the Gods–which is nearly in my backyard the day before surgery was just what I needed to move into the weeks ahead of no hiking and finding news ways to get grounded (which I have learned is simply sitting in my garden and observing with all my senses).

Deliciously beautiful isn’t it? And the mutts are kinda cute, too.

Portrait of Connection

I recently was asked to participate in a portrait project that looked to capture 365 personalities over the course of one year.  My criteria in order for me to participate: I wanted to in nature and I wanted to capture my presence of Oneness.  It was important to me to attempt to capture my connection to the greatness of the Universe and the totality of life.  Take a peek and see if the camera picked up on that.

Gratitude 

Practicing daily gratitude has been part of my life for 9 years. This gift has shifted my state of being from a victim to seeker.  Find gratitude daily and your life will change dramatically–fasten your seat belt because it’s the ride of your life.

Imagine Goodness

I awake every new day in joy.  I rest in the knowing of eternal goodness and evermore there is a song in my heart as it overflows with the acknowledgment of good.~Ernest Holmes

Pause. Stop rushing to get to the next task. Stop hurrying through the things you enjoy with the intent to take in more.  Just stop.  Hit the pause button.  Breathe.  Feel the aliveness and goodness of this moment.

In a culture of constant hurry, it is imperative for the well-being of our soul to stop and take notice.  Take in this moment and see the good.

Imagine for a minute how your life might be different if you stopped hurrying and instead you moved through each task with grace and mindfulness?  Imagine if you stopped hurrying and smiled more.  Imagine if you held your lovers hand a minute longer.  Imagine if the hug from your child lingered.

Stop rushing.  See the goodness.
