September 2019: Breath and Reflection

Shanah Tovah! Today we're taking stock and reviewing our year in honor of the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah. Reflect on the following:

  • What are your accomplishments so far this year? Write them down in a journal.

  • What do you need to continue to expand in your life to meet your vision for 2019?

  • What are the behaviors, thoughts, and actions that you need to modify or let go of to cultivate and grow your mission for the year?

We suggest you do this meditation everyday for 21 days to help you start or continue a meditation practice. This meditation will also help you appreciate what you've already done or accomplished in 2019.

We think Lynne Twist says it best: "What you appreciate appreciates." That's one of our favorite quotes!

We'll see you back for another Monday Medi next Monday at 9:30AM PST on Facebook and Instagram live. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to watch.

August 2019: Forgiveness and Seeing Yourself in Others

Hello and welcome back to Monday Medi Moments! Today, Kirk Cook is leading our Monday Medi. Kirk is our hypnotherapy expert, NLP trainer, and Deanna’s trusted teaching partner. Kirk will be leading our Monday Medis all month long. Thanks, Kirk!

August is the month of forgiveness. This month, we’ll be meditating on these four aspects of forgiveness:

  1. Seeing yourself in others.

  2. Understanding that most of us are doing our best.

  3. Gaining the insight and courage to forgive.

  4. Learning the power of ease and forgiveness and finding freedom.

This week Kirk leads us through a mirror meditation, a meditation meant to connect us with others. We suggest doing this meditation a few times this week.

Let us know what you think by commenting below! We love hearing from you.

We leave you with this quote:

“To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it.” - Confucius
