Giving Tuesday - Stillness, & the Importance of Intentions
Giving Tuesday. This has become someThing and I am making it a moment today to share a little meditation gift with you. I have been asked for a long time to record the meditations and journeys I offer, and in February of this year I actually spent a day in a recording studio. In February.
And here we are in November, and I have listened to some of them, begun a CD cover, and investigated how to publish the pieces. And at this moment I Know I need help to get some of these things out of my To Do basket and into the world. And I am in this moment noticing that I even wait to sit and right the "perfect" blog instead of sitting down and saying "hello" -
Today, I am allowing "Giving Tuesday" to be the nudge I need to share a short blog and a gift of a meditation for this day and this season. And it is so important that we set clear intentions and then Release these same intentions to Spirit. Our lives can be even better than our imaginations when we make room for partnering with Spirit.
So set an intention for yourself in this moment to connect with your own heart. Would you check in with the waters of your body.... before you even begin the meditation offered below? .... when you close your eyes right now (after you read this sentence:) ... are the waters of your body/mind still? Rippling? are your waters rockin and rollin?
And when you have connected to the waters of your body ... and if you would like to experience a five minute guided meditation (in it's raw, unedited form:) click on the photo of the roses. Drop into your heart with your breath. Receive the Gift for this Tuesday. It is a moment to be with yourSelf and your intentions for this time.
And be on the lookout for some guided meditations coming before Solstice, as well as a collection of Meditations for Mesa Carriers. There! I am putting it out there as my intention. What are you longing to share and simply not getting it done?
BREATHE. Lay your hands on your heart and breathe into that space and then breathe out. Start to follow your breath and observe your breath in and out of your heart space. Really see in your heart for a little bit. Give yourself the gift of six slow inhales and slow exhales every day in and out of your heart.

The more we experience places of timelessness, the more time we have in our day.
