Energy follows thought.  What are you thinking now? And now?  Are these your thoughts or your mother’s, or a teacher’s or even something in our society?  Socrates says, “Know thyself.”   For me, having an intention is a wonderful way to get to know myself.  I have used a system of tracking to find the origin of my thoughts, especially the critical or negative ones.  If the thought is “you can’t do that” or ‘that is stupid,” if I do not question where it comes from I might assume that it is my thought.  After I track the thought back, I might learn that it was something my brother or sister always said to me as a kid.  So the question now is, is it true in this moment?  No, I can choose my thoughts. What a great idea!  And in choosing, that is where my Power is.  The only thing I can change is how I respond – my thoughts and my actions.

I create an intention for the day, i.e. – my intention is to be fully present with my Whole Amazing Self.  My intention may change many times during the day.  I might have an intention when I teach or when I a doing a healing session with someone.  I will have an intention when speaking with one of my kids or when I have a difficult situation to deal with.  Intention keeps your mind focused on the positive and is also co-creating your reality.  What are your thoughts now?  Inhale-Love      Exhale-Fear

Ru’ach: to breathe, to inspire


We come in on a breath. We leave on a breath. How are you breathing now? Are you holding your breath? Where do you feel the breath in your body? Do you know that you can go several weeks without food? And several days without water? And only several minutes without breathing? Do you know that every cell in your body breathes? Do you know that you can exercise your breath as much as you exercise your mind mentally and your body physically? Let your brain wrap around that. When I got bored in yoga class as a student, I would close my eyes and play with moving my breath to different parts of my body. You can focus your breath to a place in your body with pain and simply breath there. When we remember to consciously breathe; the mind becomes centered and still, the body relaxes and opens up to its own ability to self-heal and the breathe deepens, connecting you to your Whole Self.

just breathe
