Think a noisy environment is the wrong place to meditate? Guess again! Wherever you go and wherever you are is the perfect place and space to meditate--even if cars are honking or people are yelling. During this meditation you will learn how to use the noise of your external environment to support you tuning deeper into your internal environment. This was one of my favorite meditations to practice while living in New York City.
Tap into your inner knowing and wisdom by giving your 6th chakra a "lick." (You'll get what I mean when you listen to the recording).

"The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity." ~ Einstein
The gift of curiosity begins by connecting to your breath. Connect to the wonder that is your breath and the gift that keeps us living without us needing to do anything!
As humans, we sometimes tend to doubt ourselves. We question our worthiness, our skills, our looks and our ability to handle challenging situations. In order to build true confidence, it must come from the inside out. And the key to building confidence is creating a deeper sense of trust from within. During this meditation, I walk you through a powerful mantra to support building and strengthening your inner confidence so that you can handle whatever life throws your way.
Acceptance is the ability to experience ourselves and our lives as things are. It is a move away from self-deception or denial and towards reality. When we let ourselves face reality, we are truly present, and the tendency to resist or numb fades.

Check-in with yourself versus checking-out. Tuning into yourself is a great way to gain awareness about what's going on in your mind, body and breath.

Start to strengthen those muscles by adding this meditation into your daily flow.
In my mind, equanimity is the key to life. This is a super helpful practice when building a business, in an intimate relationship, during a job search, mourning a loved one or even stepping into stressful or high pressured situations. Equanimity helps us find our center and ground into reality when the "winds" of the world pass through and around us.
Practicing equanimity is the ability to not cling to extreme emotions or thoughts we constantly face in life. Practicing equanimity prevents us from falling into the extreme spectrum of being reactive or passive. Instead, equanimity is a calmer, more balanced state of mind where we are present, detached and free. Practicing equanimity doesn't change the external event or environment, but instead, it allows us to practice how we respond to it. We can feel more calm, in control and at ease when we breathe equanimity into our mind and body.
Connect to the qualities of giving & receiving in your breath, body and mind.
Tis the holiday season, a time of giving & receiving. How often do you think about your relationship to these concepts? Sometimes we find one is easier, more pleasant or difficult than the other to practice. Feel me? In order to balance in your ability to give and receive, settle into this 12-minute meditation and explore what comes alive for you.
How much do you trust yourself overall on a scale of 1-10 (1=low and 10= high)? If you are like most people, your answer might be on the lower end. Trust is a foundational pillar that tends to be difficult to embody and live. We have created so many limiting beliefs that prevent us from fully trusting ourselves and each other. In order to be in relationship with others and our world, we must first come to trust ourselves. When we can practice trust, there is an inner sense of confidence and knowing that creates security and order for us to keep doing our thang. Once trust is harnessed within us, it can then ripple into other areas of our lives.
Let me know how embodying more trust supports you in your life.

To meditate doesn't necessarily mean you have to be sitting or lying down. Instead, you can practice walking mindfully as a tool to help you slow down your internal and external pace. When you walk mindfully, you create space to connect to your body, your breath and the environment around you. This practice is an awesome tool to use during your lunch breaks, in between meetings or even after a bathroom break before you head back to your desk. Sometimes moving your body is the perfect tool to help release energy and create focus.
