To Your Heart’s Content

The day dawns. Open your eyes and drink in the beauty that surrounds you.  Allow the first thought that enters your mind upon awakening to be:  “How can I live to my heart’s content?”  Nourish that sweet heart of yours with loving friends and family, adventurous experiences, colorfuly creativity, healthy foods, fresh air, exercise.  Drop habits that no longer serve you. Know that your thoughts are creative and contribute to the well being of your physiological heart as well as the emotional ‘heart center’ and the energetic heart chakra known in Sanskrit as ‘anahata’ or the ‘unstruck note’.

Learn about the HeartMath System ®, which,according to their website “entails practical, heart-based tools and technologies that people of all ages and walks of life can use to enhance health, performance and well-being.”

The Institute For HeartMath (IMH) was founded by Doc Childre who discovered that the methods which are part and parcel of HeartMath are transformative, stress reducing, strenghthening and resilience building.

Much of the focus is on heart based living, which, according to Doc Childre, “helps you learn to live in the now, bringing more of your real self into each moment. Becoming more of who you really are releases inner security, allowing you to relate to life with increased hope and confidence. Increased fulfillment is the result of this process.”

Allowing Others To Effect Their Own Destinies
Most Sundays find me at Circle of Miracles, which is an interfaith spiritual community created 19 years ago by Rev. Hannelore Goodwin. It is where I, and many who attend the ecumenical services, find family of choice, inspiration, community and healing. The room is a warm and welcoming place where D

The Only Life You Can Save
One of my favorite wise woman poets is Mary Oliver whose words touch my heart in ways that few others can; as if they could have come through me as well; so personal they are. Today, while visiting my former place of employment, one of my co-workers pulled out an anthology consisting of the works of

Abby's Light
  When a light comes into the world, we hope that it will last indefinitely, knowing that eventually it will fade. When a child is born, a parent doesn't expect that his or her light will diminish before it has a chance to fully express itself...and yet, sadly it happens.  Abby Schumer was

Light Filled Holiday
This morning, I saw a meme on a friend's Facebook page that expressed: LIKE if you plan to be politically incorrect by saying "Merry Christmas" this holiday season. My response to her was: "If I know what people celebrate, I will greet them with their preferred sentiment. I have friends of many diff
