Virus Anxiety and Fear
What Fear Does to Our Bodies, Mind, and Spirit
How many of you had plans for this summer? Are you still doing them? Have you overcome the fear?
There's a virus out there killing dreams and plans, but it's not the Coronavirus. It's a Mind Virus, something so insidious and dangerous that it can destroy us faster than a physical illness.
It happens in many different situations. We just see it more today because of the fear and panic highlighted in every news program every day!
It can happen because of something personal, like cancer. It can happen when we face the death of a loved one. It can happen because of many different things, particularly the unknown.
Fear – What's Happening In Your Body Right Now Because of this Mind Virus
It's a primordial response. The most fundamental part of our brain, commonly called The Reptilian hindbrain, recognizes fear and pleasure. This part of our brain has the sole purpose of keeping us alive.

Meditation for Beginners – What You’re Actually Supposed To Do?
Beginner meditation books and articles tell you all about the grand results you have doing their type of meditation: the clarity, the patience, and the fantastic transformative experiences.
But it takes work to get there. You don't get results right away, and if you're not practicing the right type of meditation, it can be frustrating and might seem downright impossible.
Types of Meditation
There are three basic types of meditation:
Stilling meditation is Zen. The goal is to calm the mind and bring many of the random thoughts to a stop. It's a necessary step to bring clarity.

Successful meditation in five minutes seems like an oxymoron – especially when the world tells you sitting for 30 minutes is the only way to achieve peace.
But, if sitting 30-minutes in a lotus position takes too much time, or is just too boring (or too painful), I’m telling you doing a 5-minute meditation for busy people is okay. And it might be better in the long-run.
It’s Okay to Meditate for Five Minutes
Whether you just turned to meditation or been practicing for some time, you’ll find yourself pressed for time occasionally. Doing several five-minute meditations can benefit you more than carving out 30 minutes – both mentally and physically.
Firefighters and EMTs are a prime example of this. Some organizations look at the benefits of quick meditation on the responder’s ability to concentrate, change focus, and remain collected in times of stress.
Although they know meditation reduces their stress, the problem...
Hello beautiful people,
I came across this beautiful Lotus flower on my walk this am.
Being in this amazing natural environment in Bali made me think of the presentation my last guest speaker gave on the Niyamas. Are you familiar with them?

What do you need to do to stay present- to FEEL- versus running away when things get tough?
To avoid running back into your head versus staying in your heart?
In this Interview with Dr. Joan Rosenberg, world-renowned psychologist, she shares a simple and effective method for managing your most difficult feelings and building the emotional strength you need to create the life of your dreams.
Joan also covers what she sees as the 8 unpleasant feelings we experience-Sadness, shame, helplessness, anger, embarrassment, disappointment, frustration, and vulnerability. In 30 years as a practicing psychologist, Dr. Joan Rosenberg has found that what most often blocks people from success and feeling capable in life is the inability to experience, move through, and handle these 8 unpleasant feelings.
Knowing how to deal with intense, overwhelming, or uncomfortable feelings is essential to building confidence, emotional strength, and resilience. Yet when we distract or disconnect from these feelings, we move away from confidence, health, and our desired pursuits, ultimately undermining our ability to fully realize...
