I came across this notion of happiness triggers recently. I love this concept. I usually think of triggers from a negative perspective of having an emotional reaction to some type of disturbing content. In this instance, it is still an emotional reaction but it is a positive one.

Ode to the Over-thinker
We can train the brain to create some space between thoughts. Also creating space before fight or flight response is triggered. All of which is good for our overall well being and mental health. Meditation is my relief, my stillness, and my enhanced awareness. It is also my means to help reduce the mental chatter.

Letting go of Judgement
Letting go of judgement is probably one of the most profound learnings as a result of meditation. This automatic reflex is one that takes practice to observe and bring awareness to. This is definitely the most challenging aspect of meditation for me. Even after I meditate, I can easily put judgement on the experience.

My Six Degrees of Meditation: Creativity Meditation
Probably one of the most surprising outcomes about this meditation journey, given my analytical, logical and practical nature, was a closer connection with my own creativity. It took some exploring and a lot of discomfort before I realized how meditation has helped me find my balance, including my creative side. When I was younger, I would have never imagined putting myself out there in any creative capacity.

Awareness of Time
There is a Zen proverb that goes: “You should sit in meditation for twenty minutes every day – unless you’re too busy; then you should sit for an hour.” Time is such a tricky thing. There never seems to be enough of it. It is also a challenging concept as it relates to meditation. The challenge in finding the time to meditate, the challenge in sitting with your meditation for the entire time and the challenge of many distractions we face that take us away from meditation.

Diary of a highly sensitive person
Meditation connects you to the awareness when the weight of the world is being absorbed through you like a sponge essentially through your pores, hiding deep inside you. Bringing awareness to your thoughts, to your emotions, to your absorption, can help to ease the burden.

A Stomp Full of Strength & Determination
A podcast to honor my daughter. Her stomping represents her eagerness to explore her world with new found freedom. At age one it was learning to walk, at age 16 it is learning to drive. Although I may occasionally complain about the stomp, I really wouldn’t change it for anything. Some day soon, that stomp may soften or change or move to its own house. So for now in this present moment, I will honor the stomp. It is my reminder of her strength. It is a reminder of my strength. It is my reminder her determination. It is a reminder of my own determination. Consider what are your own stomps? What are your strengths? What is your determination? What is your present moment sounds that keep you going?
