What Age Should You Start Meditating?

children meditation Mar 31, 2020

Like you, there are many mommies at home with their little ones that have so much energy they don't know what to do!  We are all staying home, working from home and some of you are home schooling when you didn't sign up for that!  It's a lot.

One of my clients asked me at what age should you start meditating?  I said now!  As I mention in the video, I started my girls in the womb.  I used to play Bach and Mozart right next to my belly to let them know it was bedtime for mami.  

Can toddlers meditate? She asked. Yes they can.  You on the other hand need to check in with your expectations and keep the meditation simple.  I show you how in this video.  

How do I teach my child mindfulness?  You can teach your child mindfulness by centering your child in the here and now.  For example, you can take your child to the forest and have a playful conversation between trees and flowers.  I say more about this in the video....

The Connection Between Your thoughts, Your Mood And Your Immune System

Sunday evening I was sitting on the sofa thinking about the week ahead, is it going to be better this week?  Is it going to worsen?  What is this world coming to?  

This virus is causing trauma as days go by.  Our children haven't experienced uncertainty and insecurity globally as they are today.  They're experiencing extreme fear.

I found myself wondering how can I be of service during this time?  One thing I know how to do is pray and meditate.  

And so the next thought came... I can help others either learn how to meditate, teach them a technique here and there or I can at least hold space for someone.

This week I'm holding live streams on my FB Page (you'll find the link down in the footer) every day at 12 pm EST M - F.

2 Effectice Breathing Exercises to Decrease Your Anxiety

anxiety breathwork sleep Feb 24, 2020

Weather you go to a yoga class or a meditation center, the instructor is going to ask you to take a deep breath, bring your focus back to your breath or simply ask you to continue breathing.

 Why?

 Because humans, when stressed tend to hold your breath, shrug your shoulders and keep’em up there for long periods of time, inhale to the top portions of your lungs and call it a day.

 This kind of shallow breathing causes you anxiety, your mind and body stress.  Without you even knowing it, you’re forgetting to relax your shoulders and inhale deeply.  Never mind inhale deeply, you’re forgetting to breathe normally!

Therefore, I’m taking time to remind you how to breathe correctly in times of relaxation so when you’re faced with stressful life moments, you already have the body memory and it’ll be easier for you to have a positive default than an anxious one.  Take it from me, someone that worked as a respiratory...

4 Types Of Meditation to Get You Started On Your Journey

Uncategorized Feb 24, 2020

Why Meditate?  Because it’s good for you!  

No, for real… meditation is a practice that has helped me and many other’s I’ve treated.  Meditation can support you with:

  • Decreasing stress

  • Decreasing anxiety

  • Improving your relationships

  • Provide you with a sense of inner peace

  • Increased sleep

  • Intuition

  • Decreased blood pressure

  • Being compassionate with yourself and others

  • Being less judgmental toward yourself and others

  • Being more and doing less


Event though running, walking, and dancing can be forms of letting go and may help you feel lighter, these practices do not allow you to transcend into a place where time doesn’t exist even if it’s for 5 minutes.


This is why I want to introduce you to these 4 practices that you can implement, transcend with the use of a simple timer.

 

  1. Guided Meditation -  This is when someone guides you to a place in your subconsciousness with a purpose.  This is the kind...

Talking About Your Goals Helps Manifest Them

You may want to get in the habit of counting your wins.  I know that as kids we learned not to brag.  Especially us women.  “It’s not nice, not lady like.”  Well, I’m here to tell you it’s time to unlearn that.  It’s time to share your wins and scream “Hell yeah!”

This exact thing is what we’re doing in our meditation group every month, we count our wins and share them with pride.  We encourage and support each other to take the next step!  Oh, and we clap for each other too

Why count your wins?  First, because you can.  Second, it creates momentum in your life.  The more you talk about your wins the smaller the other stuff becomes.   The more you talk about your wins, they become real, and the energy multiplies.  It feels good.  You inspire the people that are watching you, your kids.  Some may talk snot about you behind your back, but that’s...
