In today's episode, I'm going to breathe some light beyond the feeling of peace, calm and focus and onto bigger and more badass things. You may want to meditate just to chill, but once you are all chilled out, then what? What does life's palate look like?
I once taught someone to meditate that was going through an awful divorce; he said the future looked like a giant grey palate, but by making some space in that nugget of his, he found out that the palate was ready to be painted however he...
On today's show, I am going to fill you in on some tips on how to meditate on vacation and, more importantly, why vacation is an excellent time to strengthen your practice. And I am proving this because I am relaxed and productive recording while I am on vacation! The best part is that when your vacation is over, you will find that your meditation practice helps you keep that vacation feeling alive and not send you home counting the days until the next vacation.
In my first episode, "Ten...
Are you looking for the perfect meditation app? Do you know why you need or don’t need the app? Well there are tons to choose from (over 2000), and they are all competing for market share, and that alone seems more stressful than calming. Plus, if your phone looks like mine sometimes just finding the app you downloaded can make you dizzy. One time I thought I opened a meditation app and ended up opening a Headline News app which of course I had to read and well now my mind is...
On today’s podcast, I am going to nail the top ten list of “why I didn’t or can’t meditate “ – I like to call it the excuse du jour. I bet you’ll recognize a lot of them and laugh at some too.
Hey there, Alexa Z here.
Usually, when you teach a subject, you start with how you can do something, but in this case, I am going to start with the “why I can’t.”
I get more people stopping me and saying I can’t because of...
Intro – On today’s show I am going to breathe some life into the present moment or being mindful of the present moment. If you aren’t in the present moment then where the heck are you, running away from it, ruminating on how cool all the past moments were, stressed about planning for the future moments? Or are you maybe hiding from them all? I’ll give you the skinny on what, why, and how you can stay in the moment even if the current moment is crappy. In a short time,...
Imagine if you had clarity, not confusion.
Imagine if the clutter in your mind was swept aside to reveal your true brilliance.
Imagine you could make effortless decisions throughout your day.
Imagine finding less on your to-do list and more time to do the things you love with the people you love
Imaging a good night’s sleep, waking up feeling grounded, peaceful with tons of energy to take on the day.
Imagine listing to this short podcast and not thinking “you are full of...
Be mindful I teach, stay in the moment. There are at least a gazillion books that agree with me. Do you?
It's time to talk, stay in the present moment.
It's time to be with my child, stay in the present moment.
It's time to cook, stay in the present moment.
It's time to focus on my job, stay in the present moment.
Well, as I write this, this moment feels pretty crappy. I actually would like to skip this moment and move on to the next. Even yesterday's moments were better. I am tired, and my...
Have you ever gotten angry, become unreasonable, and begin a list of all the vengeful things you would like to do to the person who really got under your skin? And sometimes it feels so awful that you even want to give up. Sometimes there is no external solution to be found and that can be aggravating. That was me today until I found one second of reason, and my mind told my body, "go for a walk."
Just a little background to see if maybe you can join me. Pretend someone has...
Did you ever play the game "What are five traits of someone you deeply admire?"
If so, patronize me and play again. It only takes a moment but is worth a dozen.
Get a scrap of paper and a pen. Here we go:
Pick someone (or multiple people) you look up to, perhaps famous, historical, your neighbor, anyone you deeply respect or maybe would even love to have as your mentor.
Write down 5 of their traits that you most admire.
Now, look at the list. I bet you think those traits are...
