Are you in?

Tomorrow starts the Oprah Deepak 21 Day free meditation again. I love when I recommit to a practice that nurtures my soul. It’s the same with exercise. I’ve said I don’t have time before. There are guilty pleasure reality shows I make time for, but they do nothing for me. Tonight is the Full Moon. It’s a perfect time for me to recommit to a deeper spiritual practice with myself.

For some people, they honor their connection to God-Goddess-Spirit-Universe on Sunday.  Some read their holy books or say prayers at bedtime.  Deepak Chopra mediates two hours a day.  I’m thinking holy moly!  I think it’s beautiful to commit to connect to your higher power in the morning and in the evening.  Some do more than that, but I’m recommitting to at least twice a day.  But really, when we are loving, we are in that space.  When we are in nature, we are in that state of grace.  When we remember to be grateful, God permeates that moment.

I was so touched the other day when my two younger sons, ages seven and four, came and told me they heard a lot of sirens and prayed for those people.  I’m not religious and not traditional, but I am old school in the way of kindness big time.  I want my children to pray for strangers.  To care about what is happening to people across the globe and to send love and pray as if we did know them.  Teaching compassion, kindness, and empathy is so important to me.  But again, I need to recommit to this.  I’m good at this with strangers sometimes and forget to really be there with my children, instead of yelling about bad behavior and the huge messes they make.  I’ve been burnt out and lacked patience.  I recommit to being kinder to myself and to my family.

I am not going to commit to any “shoulds,” like I should be better, be doing this, or not do this…but rather a new way of living.  A refresh of some things I’ve done that worked.  I’ll open up to explore some new things as well.  I’m not the angry person I was in my twenties, but I’ve noticed I’ve turned some business frustrations into an edginess at times where I’m snappy.

Time to go back to joy and feeling good.  Setting the tone for my day and knowing I create my happiness, not people, places, things, circumstances.  Nope, it’s my choice.  Going to reactivate my love muscles and take responsibility for my vibe.  It’s easy to complain.  I don’t take the easy way out.  I will focus on what I want, not what I don’t want.  I’m in.  What can you change that can make a huge impact in your life?  Your soul gives you nudges.  Ask yourself.  You are strong enough to do anything you put your mind and heart to.  Use this Full Moon tonight to set an intention for yourself.  What do you want to create?

Are you in?  Let’s go.

Grocery Store Adventures
I have five kids. I practically live at the grocery store. I'm not complaining, I'm grateful I have the variety to pick from and the money to pay for it.  I know that place like the back of my hand.  I don't know the aisle numbers, but I write my list according to their location if I'm organized,

Food Love
They say it's not healthy to love food, but I do. I guess it's healthy to love celery...but does anyone really LOVE celery? Maybe there is someone. Even as a healthy chick, I still love cheese fries. But a healthy love, not a negative one. I'm picky about which place I get them from and know I can't

Raise Your Vibe, Change Your Life
It's easy to complain. I can fall into that trap as a mom especially.  When we're on that complaining, love vibe channel, we see a bunch of crap come on our screen.  Everything is broken.  Everything needs to be fixed.  It's exhausting.  Everything is.  At the end of the summer, I was burnt ou

What does a strong women look like?
We're all used to seeing strong women portrayed on television. She's fighting crime. She's tough. She doesn't like people to get too close to her.  Softness equals weakness.  That's good and all for entertainment, but for me I see strength differently. I have many friends who embody strength to

I Pray for the Schools
Three of my children start school tomorrow here in New Jersey. So much has changed since I was a kid. I am not a person who hates on how things are, but as a mom, I can wish for the feeling of innocence we all had when I was in in the second grade. My oldest starts her Senior year of high school (cu
