When the world seems to be hurtling toward disaster, it feels like we should be hunched over our phones freaking out. Trump and North Korea, new evidence of the effect of climate change, daily revelations about people we know who are sick or struggling, it's all worrying. And there is no more important time to practice love.
Today, if you are feeling worried or scared, please join me in a positive practice. Let's calm our bodies and make space for peace.
Align intentionally with goodness, love, divinity, and generosity. Imagine anchoring your awareness in love. Make it palpable by considering how you see love showing up in the world--the brave and open-hearted teachers in your life, the beauty of nature, a kind word or gesture from (or toward) a stranger.
Imagine love filling your whole being. Let it stream in through the crown of your head, fill you, and stream out through your fingers and toes, your heart, your throat, and everything you do and say today.
Open yourself to BE love in action today. Remember as your day unfolds, I AM LOVE.
I'm a mom, wife, daughter, friend, and teacher who has long struggled with the desire to be the perfect person I imagine that I should be. Practicing mindfulness helps me find peace with my imperfect journey--being with myself as I truly am, loving my family as they are, and showing up for a messy world with openness and compassion.
