A Free Guided Pictorial Meditation for Moving Beyond Fear, Stress and Despair
Meditation: Healing the Inner World First
One cannot have healing without embracing that which needs to be healed. Meditation provides a pathway in the mind to observe the multitude of painful thoughts and emotions that we all carry that keep us separate from the One and one “an other”. The states of consciousness available through meditation allow for objectivity, so lucidity can shine through the ego’s darkest illusions in daily living.
Attention, Attunement, Awakening
Deep love is possible when we express conscious attention. Attending and being attuned to the deepest emptiness and human need in our self and one another is the awakening of love.
Meditation: Going Beyond Ego Barriers
The first step towards the release of outer world conflict is the release of our own conflicts within our own inner mind……Meditation returns us to the instance before thought, the timeless moment of being where there is a suspension of all wanting, all will that precedes thought. ….A sacred awareness in the continuum of consciousness where we clearly know that we are both Spirit and the melody, both Spirit and the words, both Spirit and the images and perceptions of all experiences in mind and body…..
Meditation: Steady As We Go
The most fundamental lesson in this existence is to learn to embrace our conflicts within, so that we do not project them out onto the world as thought missiles that do harm. The mind tries to chatter all the pain away with mind spam. Meditation opens the mind to process our own internal conflicts that unfold the layers of self and compassion blossoms. It reminds us of our life painting, our Spirit, the true artist, who illustrates and teaches us what we came here to learn.
Embrace Each Child and You Embrace Yourself
…the apparent teacher is also a student and the apparent student is also a teacher… True learning is a state of consciousness that lets everyone’s light shine; all the teachers, all the students, they are the same… Our children are our teachers….

Our Pets: Teachers of the Rhythmic Dance
Our pets keep us in touch. As we touch them they touch us in our most basic rhythms deep within. They remind us of our inner need for playfulness, rest, relaxation and restoration.

Food: Fill Up or Fulfill?
Our emotional well being is just as important as the healthy foods we eat. Our stomach may also gurgle and growl to alert our mind to something unhealthy.

As we stay attuned to our “gut sense,” we can be aware of what is truly comforting, loving, and safe in our physical and emotional fulfillment.
Discernment in Choosing Your Healer
Tired of pain and promises, I turned to my Spirit for discernment on what to do next in the healing of my wrist…..When we aren’t awake as either healer or the person accepting healing, we simply “don’t realize what we do.”….Our Spirit doesn’t make any mistake when it guides the mind, which in turn guides the body.
