Sometimes You Have To Let Go and Fall

 I absolutely adore meditation, especially guided meditation. Guided meditation is when you listen to an audio track of someone navigating you through a scenario that your lovely brain gets to imagine. It’s calming and peaceful and after one of those especially sucky days, my secret weapon to feeling better, or at least holding onto my sanity. One of my favorite meditations is called The Cliff by The Meditation Society of Australia and it’s totally free to sign up and get access to some really great meditations.The Cliff starts out with imagining yourself standing on the edge of a cliff, looking out over the ocean as the sun begins to rise and you are safe there. Take a minute to really think about that image. Let your mind see it in as much detail as possible. The feel of dew dampened grass brushing against your feet. The expansiveness of being so…

Why I’m A Bad Friend And What It Has Taught Me

The Golden Girls have been my favorite show for as long as I can remember. The friendship between all of the ladies is something that I have always wanted for myself and yet I don’t feel like I’ve ever been able to find it. I don’t know how to be someone’s friend and at the age of 25 it feels a bit late in the game to learn. Still, I yearn for the friendships that are seen on tv. Friends, How I Met Your Mother, Cheers – who wouldn’t want a group of lovable weirdos to go through life with? I’ve never had that and a part of me doesn’t think I ever will. Remember when I talked about accepting my weird? This is a day when it’s getting to me. You see, I am trying to work on my friendship anxiety. Friendships make me really anxious. I just don’t…

I Wish to Nourish My Spirit

I decided to participate in Wishcasting Wednesday. This week’s prompt is ‘What Do You Wish To Nourish?’ The first answer that comes to mind is that I wish to nourish my friendships. However, after a little bit of thought, I don’t think that’s what I need to be concentrating on at the moment. What I really need to do is nourish my spirit. I wish to nourish my spirit. I’ve been going through a bit of a spiritual drought lately. It’s hard to explain since I do things like meditate and pray on a daily basis but it lacks the passion it once had. My relationship with spirituality is much like a marriage. It’s there, it’s constant, I’m never going to leave, but sometimes it gets comfortable. I go through the motions without really feeling it. There are other times when I am filled with so much passion and love for my…

My Favorite Teachers: Snatam Kaur

 I have a lot of spiritual teachers who have influenced me through words, books, or songs to be a better version of myself. People that have had such a huge impact on my life that I can pinpoint my changes and evolution to them. Snatam Kaur is one of those people. Her name is pronounced Suh-nuh-taum which I think is just beautiful. She is an American Singer/Songwriter and a member of the Sikh religion. Religions of all kind fascinate me and I think the Sikh religion is one of the most beautiful. Sikhism began in India and they worship by chanting, meditating, practicing peace, and living their life in accordance to their Gurus. They believe that everyone is equal regardless of gender, social standing, or religion. Most beautiful of all, they believe that all paths to God are valid and that there is no “right” way. Not only do I…
