Keys to the Kingdom
In my work as an intuitive life coach and spiritual mentor, people often ask me what practices have been helpful in my own life. And while I have benefitted from many positive influences, I always mention two foundational practices: meditation and self-care.
When I began to explore meditation, it was simply a tool to de-stress. As I learned to enjoy it and delved deeper, I learned that meditation is also a powerful tool to enhance creativity, to build focus, and to simply be. For me, it became a daily practice of self-discovery and spiritual awareness that I continue to this day.
Soon thereafter, I bought my first self-help book, ever: Take Time for Your Life by Cheryl Richardson. The centerpiece of that program is self-care, and as I applied the principles, I experienced dramatic results in my everyday life. When I began to discern my true priorities and take actions that honored those intentions, my life took on new meaning.
In fact, my extraordinary experiences with meditation, self-care, and the power of intention eventually led me to further study of metaphysical and spiritual subjects, that ultimately resulted in a career change of a higher order.
You can imagine how excited I become whenever I have the opportunity to teach two of my favorite workshops: Self-Care for the Soul, and Meditation Sampler. Either one might just be the catalyst that you need to begin creating a life that you love, or take yourself to the next phase of your journey. Finally, here are two more blogposts that provide tips on these subjects: Integrating Self-Care into Everyday Life (now a subheading under Wintering) and Meditation is a Natural Practice.
