What To Think During Meditation – Do We Need To Master Our Mental Chatter?


March 10. 2016 | by Brook Still | A-Ha! Moments, Featured Articles


Mental chatter in meditation is something most people feel they have to stop, however, there is an easy way to master this with remarkable results.  Let’s look at this from a different point of view.  Many often wonder what to think during meditation to stop the chatter.  It's not about stopping the mental chatter, it’s about moving outside of your thoughts going through their motions.  It’s like noticing what your brain is thinking and not being personally involved in it.  The quality of your thoughts are important for inner happiness, but to think you cannot meditate with any thoughts is a set up for failure.  It’s like saying you can’t meditate unless it is completely quiet around you.  Yet can you not hear yourself breathing or the pulsation of your blood being pumped through your ears?  If this were the case, only the deaf could meditate.  Your brain is a gift, it's doing its job coming up with new wonderful ways of playing and experiencing life.  Where it can cause a disturbance in your meditation is when you are not...

Meeting the World with Empowered Innocence


February 25. 2016 | by Brook Still | A-Ha! Moments, Featured Articles


As adults, how we introduce ourselves is more about what we do in the world and less about who we truly are. As kids, it was your name and then a myriad of questions to find connection: “What’s your favorite game? Do you like to ride bikes? My favorite color is a rainbow, what’s yours?” These questions were based more on what you liked and what you liked to do, so that we could do it together. Through this onslaught of fast paced excited questioning, it often lead to super-charged joyous connection blowing the mere happy by yourself right out of the water. As for me, the squeals of delight and sound of group laughter were the highlight of my days as a kid. Now, as an adult, it’s the blissful connection to my Soul that excites me, followed by the squeals of delight and sounds of group laughter. This way of being offers me the balance of being a fully empowered adult with a childlike heart of innocence. For me it is the amazing gift of being powerful, playful,...

You Are What You Eat – Part Two


February 18. 2016 | by Devi Archer | A-Ha! Moments, Featured Articles


The first segment of this article explored multiple aspects of the old adage “You are what you eat.”  I learned a lot about myself, my eating habits and improving my daily self-care, and I hope you did too! So, what is the next piece?  Understanding that we are not just what we eat, we are also what we integrate.  Take a moment to consider what is being “consumed” daily from our environment, whether it is on a conscious, subconscious, or unconscious level.  From the first morning yawn and the moment our bodies begin to awaken, we are fed a continuous stream of visual, auditory, olfactory and tactile stimuli.  All of these sensations have an impact on our internal environment and to some degree affect our thoughts and emotions.  Ask yourself the following self-assessment questions: Do I feel at peace and joyous with my surroundings, or do I feel overwhelmed, stagnant, or disorganized?  If your response is one of the latter, invest some time to clear out clutter and reorganize your home or work space.  As you are clearing, set an...
