The Power of Breath

This month on Monday Medi Moments, we’ve been teaching about the power of the breath and how to use it to expand our energetic resources.

Four key things about breath:

  1. Your breath is your reset button and most important resource. You can’t survive without it.

  2. Every breath provides an opportunity to inhale new oxygen and energetic resources, and exhale carbon dioxide and waste from the body. That is the nature of the breath. Inhale, refresh. Exhale, release.

  3. Conscious breathing elevates stress and focuses the mind, just as breathing quickly and shallowly or gasping for air can pique anxiety and confusion.

  4. Cultivating length and quality to your breath helps you relax and soften anxiety, lower your blood pressure, and release toxins from your body.

Breathing is a moving meditation, a powerful one. The breath also helps you ground yourself. If you find yourself drifting from the present moment when you’re meditating, all you have to do is come back to your breath.

Try this:

  • Notice what affects your breath. Breathe consciously. Throughout your day, notice how you’re breathing. Notice the quality of your breath in different situations. What did you discover?

  • To reset quickly: breathe with intention. Inhale, refresh. Exhale, release.

  • Easy mindful meditation practice: simply pay attention to your breath throughout your day.

Breathing brings renewal. You’ll notice that when you experience things that are emotionally or physically disagreeable, you’ll tend to hold your breath and create distraction. That’s why we’re asking you to get curious about how you breathe throughout your day. When you notice yourself gripping or holding your breath, simply take a moment to unclench and breathe deeply. Ahhhhh.

Building a Forgiveness Practice

The whole month of August, we’ve been talking about and meditating on forgiveness.

Often the first person we need to forgive is ourselves. After all, we believe that forgiveness and self-love is the gift you give yourself, and it comes from within. Harboring ill feelings creates more ill feelings, just as love creates more love and good will. Forgiving yourself and others opens the door to an abundance of love, acceptance, and creative possibilities. Mastering the art of forgiveness allows you to see and actualize your life’s potential. Your capacity to fulfill your desires is equal to the level of forgiveness you have for yourself and others.

The Month of Unity

The Month of Unity

June is the month of unity. The Greek goddess, Juno, is the deity of marriage. This month on Monday Medi Moments, we’ve explored unity and connection. How do you create unity in your life? Do you acknowledge and seek connection with people? 

As you seek and find connection with others, use these four principles to help deepen those connections:

The four principles of unity are:

  1. Self-acceptance: accept yourself for who you are and where you are in life.

  2. Acceptance for others: accept others for who they are and where they are in life. 

  3. Accept your role: we’re all a part of the bigger picture of things. We each play a role in the unity of our larger communities. What’s your role?

  4. Gathering all the parts: we’re able to unify when we accept our wholeness.

Cultivating Your Intention

“What you appreciate appreciates.” ~ Lynne Twist

This month on Monday Medi Moments, we’ve focused a lot on cultivating intention. Cultivating intention is important because it brings focus and purpose to your life. If you’ve been feeling a little off your center lately, cultivating intention is a great exercise for you.

When you think about what you want to cultivate in your life, think about what would fulfill you. Keep in mind that while money and other material objects aren’t bad, they don’t necessarily bring you the most fulfillment. We’re taught from a young age that success means having money, but we want you to go deeper. What do you need right now to feel a greater sense of connection to others? What do you need to feel a deeper love for yourself? What is it that will bring you the most healing?

Happy International Women's Day 2019!

We've been privileged to meditate with so many powerful, awe-inspiring women throughout the years. We are a women-led and owned company and proud of it! To all you women out there: you rock our world!

A little wisdom from one of our teachers, Wendy Williams:
"It's time for the divine feminine to lead...The divine feminine has been down and hidden and thought of as less than. What's really important now is that women learn how to step up into leadership in their own lives. And once they're full, [to step up into that leadership position] in the world. But only after you're full."
