Amazing Mindfulness Blog: “My deepest desire in all the world is to hold and be held, to heal and be healed. To see and be seen. To connect with a capital C. I am in the process of cracking wide open all that stands in the way of True Truth and True Love. This is my practice. This is why I’m here.”

Truth Cards: “I made these sweet little “Truth Cards” that I’m so excited to share.  There are 80 little phrases/affirmations/truths/bits of inspiration/questions.  Some of you may remember my little list of “I knows” from a few months ago, I have included those (slightly altered), as well as the “Breaking Rulesquestions (posted a couple of weeks ago). Above are a few of the 80…they are ready to print (I printed mine onto card stock paper) and cut and placed into your favorite, little, special container to pull from whenever you are called. Consider them like little guides, little words of encouragement & guidance to counter all of those other not-so-nice things we sometimes say to ourselves (or others say to us).  Little reminders to come back to your highest Truth.”

Metta Drum: It Begins In You

Metta: A Pali word meaning loving-kindness, friendliness, benevolence, amity, friendship, good will, kindness, love, sympathy, close mental union (on same mental wavelength), and active interest in others.

And… it begins in You.

As you bring this loving-kindness forth in You, it becomes natural to radiate it outward into the world. This is the foundation of Metta Drum. I’ve created this space to share my insights on personal and spiritual development, healing, and our essential connection with each other. I am both a teacher and a student of these insights, and I hold this space sacred as a source of purpose and joy.”

750 Words

Simple, private, online journaling that keeps track of your writing patterns and topics. Very helpful when wanting to go back and reflect on moods.

“I’ve long been inspired by an idea I first learned about in The Artist’s Way called morning pages. Morning pages are three pages of writing done every day, typically encouraged to be in “long hand”, typically done in the morning, that can be about anything and everything that comes into your head. It’s about getting it all out of your head, and is not supposed to be edited or censored in any way. The idea is that if you can get in the habit of writing three pages a day, that it will help clear your mind and get the ideas flowing for the rest of the day. Unlike many of the other exercises in that book, I found that this one actually worked and was really really useful.

I’ve used the exercise as a great way to think out loud without having to worry about half-formed ideas, random tangents, private stuff, and all the other things in our heads that we often filter out before ever voicing them or writing about them. It’s a daily brain dump. Over time, I’ve found that it’s also very helpful as a tool to get thoughts going that have become stuck, or to help get to the bottom of a rotten mood.”
