Mindfulness is the foundation for everything else; it establishes the ground from which you actually can live with greater presence, hope and grace. It carves a path to greater satisfaction by allowing you to be with things exactly as they are with compassion and awareness.
It’s natural to want to push away from fear, pain and uncertainty; unfortunately, that also often has the opposite affect. What we are trying to achieve is a level of protection and denial. What we end up with is disconnection and more pain.
As you develop mindful awareness through specific exercises and meditations, the space between worrisome thoughts grows larger.
It’s in that space that the seeds of peace are watered.
No worries if you’ve tried meditating and “failed” in the past – one of my magical qualities is helping you find your way into a sustainable practice.
