Part II: Laughing Yourself Into A New Perspective

It’s been close to two hours. Have you done the 30 second laugh? If not, leap into this mind training exercise.

I know…I’m being a bit pushy. Yet this is not a time for an attitude of lassitude. Instead it’s a time to be liberated from a lower state of conscious.

Give yourself this simple, potent gift. Go for it. I am with you grinning wildly!

Laugh out what has been prohibiting you.
•The frustration, confusion, sadness, grief, annoyance, fear, anger, hopelessness…
•The energies you took in that aren’t yours
•The somatic tension, constriction, numbness, tightness

Laugh it out into the Universe. Sense the transformation. Walk into the world with this freshness.

Now what do you notice?!

Laugh Yourself Into a New Perspective

Spoiler Alert: This is FUN!

Ready for a fun 30 second exercise?
Set your timer and…
Laugh! Giggle! Snort! Chuckle! Guffaw! LOL!
(Loud…and long…and clear!)

At 30 seconds immediately go into silence.
Observe your body.
Witness what is alive in you.
Notice your current perspective
And move into your day.

How many times each day?
Many of our students do it at the top of each waking hour for 30 seconds…
You do what works for you.

Let me know what evolves…or dissolves!

To heal and realign…

To heal and realign requires listening into the silence, the diligence to respond to what is needed, and mucho patience.

It is a time for trust and confident courage
•To contemplate the next best thing
•To think the next best thought
•To manifest the next best action

…all of which is simply the outer manifestation of an inner state of being.

Bottomline: Healing and realigning is an inside job!

No exceptions

Whatever the story
Consciously choosing how to respond is always on you.

Always. 

No exceptions.

Guiding Signs ~ Let Yourself Be Found

Road signs direct us while being metaphors for living
YIeld. No U-Turn. Speed Limit 50. Slow Down. Wrong Way. One Way. Merge. Stop.

Midland, Michigan

What about the invisible signs?
The symbols, the whisperings, the sensations?
How do we recognize and amplify them as we live into our day?

To avoid your own personal traffic jam of life:
•Pause. Relax. Open. Recognize and trust what emerges.
•Allow the invisible signs to find you.
•Listen deeply.
•Let yourself be guided into the Mysteries of the Unknown.

Purification Practice

Three days of somatic awareness
Feeding self miso soup, good books, zafu sitting, Qi Gong, rest and kinhin.

Slowly re-entering this morning, I am alive with soft gaze, curiosity, stamina and delight.

Such a moment to be alive.

Trusting on Summer Solstice

“But I am afraid to trust,” he says.

“Begin by trusting what is freely given,” she replies.

“But I don’t understand,” he says.

“Pretend as though you do,” she says gently smiling.
“Pretend you trust the spacious skies
This air that gives you life
The hawk that sees you and tips its’ wings
The pinon branches waving to you in the wind
The silence that lovingly surrounds you in the night
The summer sun arising once again.”

“Pretend,” she said quietly as he wept,
“You can trust your tears
on this longest day of the year.”

The Night of Her Fullness

Seven people said they had been up since 3am.
Each felt they had been singled out…

That something was wrong with them
That somehow they had chosen the wrong food to eat
The wrong nightly activity before bed
The wrong thoughts to think
Even the wrong place to live.

But they had simply forgotten
To give themselves permission
To go outside at 3am
Under the dark bright skies
And take refuge with the Woman in the Moon.

To bow to her fullness, her strength, her magnetizing light
To bow to their own aligned internal tides
And find meaning in the mysteries of existence.
