Come to center

Come to center

It is a new year and a time to set intentions, or what we call in Sanskrit a sankalpa. Its important to set conscious intention, ones that are evolutionary and arise from the heart. In order to invoke the support of nature in the manifesting of these intentions we must have a solid daily meditation practice. Meditation not only provides us a pathway to higher state of consciousness it also plays an important role in stabilizing our nervous system.

In these times, we are constantly moving, our nervous systems are becoming unbalanced and agitated, the mind busy. It is necessary for us to take time to slow down and experience our steadfast center and allow ourselves the opportunity to connect to something greater. Through the practice of meditation we are able to stabilize our nervous system, transcend thought patterns and limiting beliefs, which leads us to be in a more receptive state to experience our higherself. As women it is especially important for us to cultivate a daily meditation practice as it gives us greater access to the infinite power that we naturally harness, it is this power that has manifesting power. Doing a daily practice meditation is not only benefical for us, but benefical for all the people in our lives. 

So, create space, just 20 minutes each morning to sit and come to stillness and breathe. 

Namaste and blessings for an abundant 2019!
