Over the years, I’ve used mindfulness and meditation exercises to gain greater clarity in my work and career. While I know that many people explore guided meditation for relaxation and to de-stress, they may not realize that it can also be used to enhance communication skills with colleagues, remain grounded no matter what the situation, and to chart a course for a better work experience.
For this reason, I was honored to work alongside Cindy Readnower of Skinny Leopard Media to create “Mindfulness in Work and Business.” Whether you are exploring mindfulness exercises for the first time, or seek to deepen your practice, this course is designed to teach you tools for creating a better life. In it, we explore several different mindfulness tools, including affirmations, setting intentions, guided meditation, and visualizations. Once a student completes this course, they will have the foundation to practice six new mindfulness meditations and exercises that can be utilized at any time.
For those reading this blog, I’d like to offer you “Mindfulness in Work and Business” for only $10 – that’s 60% off of the retail price. This offer ends Feb. 3, 2017. Here is that link: MINDFULNESS
Best wishes, wherever your journey takes you!
Welcome to the positive disruption…
If you think a full moon and Mercury in Retrograde put a damper on your best laid plans, hold onto your seat.
Symbolically, the total solar eclipse brings change – and who the heck wants that in the middle of a perfectly good work week? But more than that, it means getting rid of the old, worn out and toxic beliefs in order to shed a light of clarity on what’s in your best and highest good.
Today’s a good day to “take out the trash.” Consider what negative emotions, patterns of thinking and behavior, and possibly even what relationships are unhealthy for you, and vow to toss them out of your life. It’s also a good time to consider what it is you’ve always wanted to accomplish or become, and take one step to do or be that.
While the eclipse may happen overnight – voiding out toxic patterns and replacing them with positive ones will take time and regular reinforcement. For example, to this day, I sometimes have negative self-talk that likes to creep in. When it does, I remind myself “That is not who I am anymore,” and consciously replace it with a more positive thought. I, like many, am a work in progress.
A wise friend of mine told me that if you write down three “miracles” that you observe every day for an entire month, you will see the miracles getting bigger and bigger as you attract positive energy toward you.
A “miracle” by definition can be any extraordinary and surprising event that cannot be explained by natural or scientific law and is often considered to be divinely inspired … More simply, a happy and unexpected event.
I went home and told the Spaniard about the “miracle” experiment that I wanted to try.
“That’s easy,” he answered. “I can think of three right now. One, it’s a miracle humans exist. Two, it’s a miracle how our cells communicate with our other cells. Three, it’s a miracle how we’ve developed language to communicate with other human beings.”
Aside from my happy surprise at his willingness to go along with my idea (Dare I call this a miracle?), I couldn’t help laughing.
“Wow,” I answered. “My first recorded miracle was, Yay, we made it the to car before the rain came pouring down!”
Clearly he is more evolved than I …
