Feel supported, take action

There are times, when you know what your next step should be. You know and feel that it’s the right next step. But still, you can’t make yourself take that step. You’re procrastinating, feeling stuck and just plain unable to act.

In these situations, often what you need, is more support. Even when you have a great network of loving friends, family and colleagues, who are there for you, you might need to feel supported on a deeper level.

This is when zooming out and acknowledging the ways that you are already supported, can move mountains.

When you feel deeply supported, you can let go of the worries, anxieties, fears and tensions that paralyze you. Instead, you can feel open, energized and lean, so you can move ahead with that next step.

If you need that deeper sense of support, do this meditation with me.

Here’s to your conscious productivity!
Cheers,

Mantra meditation is NOT about the mantra

Oftentimes, when we hear about mantra meditation, there are a lot of different rules and practices that float around. We can get discouraged about even trying to meditate with a mantra, because we don’t know which mantra will be “the right one” for us or if we are supposed to repeat it a certain amount of times. We can also get distracted by the meaning of the mantra we’ve chosen and get off track with the meditation itself. In this short video, I give you an overview of how to meditate with a mantra and what we are actually doing when we use a mantra during our meditation practice.

What is meditation really? And why do we meditate?

Regularly spending time meditating is amazing. But meditation is not just about the time you spend on the cushion. Watch the video where I explain more about this common misconception.

Get present in the busy-season

Get present in the busy-season

When the evenings become cooler and we take out our jackets, we know it’s the beginning of autumn. It also means back-to-school or work, schedules that fill up quickly and before we know it, we are knee-high in the holiday season.

The end of the year is also often a time where busyness creeps in. We try to get things done that still need to be done before the new year begins.

In these times, becoming more present and tuning into what is going on around us, is great to get out of the overwhelm that often accompanies this time of year. Try this meditation and feel refreshed and grounded.

This short meditation helps you to tune into your body’s needs. When we take the time to pay attention to our body, it gets a chance to show us what it needs. Cultivating awareness in the lower belly is seen as essential in several ancient wisdom practices.

According to these practices, we achieve vitality, if we cultivate a hot lower belly, a neutral hart and a cool head. In our society today, we often have a cold and disconnected lower belly, an indifferent hart and a hot head. Practice tuning in and you’ll start to restore balance.
