Feeling strange today? Reactive? Emotional? Tired? Or are you noticing people around you--maybe your kids--being surprisingly reactive and emotional?
Join me in recognizing the lunar eclipse (1:22 pm EST) and full moon (2:11 pm EST) happening this afternoon! Soul Source's Suchitra Davenport shares a full moon meditation every month, tune in to this month's here to build understanding of what's up right now and to join in meditative service during this time.
Living heartfully today may look like slowing down. Can you pause between what happens to you and how you respond? Can you allow a few full breaths before answering your child's sassy comment, that difficult email, or the latest political post on social media? Can you listen to what you really need today and make it happen? Even a few minutes of quiet or a single yoga pose may be enough to sustain your most loving presence today.
As a mom, wife, and human being, I have long struggled with the desire to be the perfect person I imagine that I should be. Mindfulness and mindful parenting have helped me get to know the beauty of the imperfect journey that I'm really on.
