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.
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.
