The Love is IN Your Heart

While I was practicing my yoga class for February, "The Love is IN Your Heart", I had an aha moment.  In one flow you reach your hands forward and back with palms up on the inhale, and then sweetly collect them to heart's center on the exhale.  On my mat I realized this symbolizes how … Continue reading The Love is IN Your Heart

Meditation on Resolving to “Be Lazy” to Hear Spirit’s Guidance

In contemplating a New Years resolution, a weird notion came to me: "Be Lazy".  I'm not talking about neglecting chores or shirking work though.  Instead, I mean slowing and quieting down enough to hear the gentle wisdom of Spirit speaking to us.  Letting our hearts lead more than our heads.  Following the lead of Love … Continue reading Meditation on Resolving to “Be Lazy” to Hear Spirit’s Guidance

After all, most of us carry "smart" phones, not heart phones ... right?
