I have often written about journaling on this blog. However, I have recently transitioned to automatic writing for about 20 minutes every morning. This has allowed me to tap into a higher guidance system. Rather than writing about problems or fears I am having, I pose a question, connect with my higher self, and allow myself to write down the wisdom that comes to me. I have found this to be both empowering and healing, as it allows me to step out of my day-to-day story and into a higher perspective.

This morning I sat in my meditation corner, listening to healing music, wrapped in a cozy blanket. I had trouble sleeping last night because a lot was on my mind. A project I am involved in is taking longer than I had hoped to get off the ground, and there is a lot up in the air. Instead of harping on this story, I wrote this:

What is the potential for you, if you were able to see the future as something that could be known–that there are many probable future destinations. You have the power to choose which outcome you would most like to see. The outcome you would like should be focused on solely for it to come into physical manifestation. You can draw pictures, create a vision board, and ask to see this for the highest good. When you think of how to serve others, your power increases significantly. It you were to focus on numbers and money, people would sense your fear and stay far away. But, when you focus on service and affirm that you will receive more than enough to meet your needs, all will be done in Divine Timing.

Much more empowering than a whiny journal entry about money!

If you happen to be in the area, I’m giving a workshop on Intuitive Journaling at Terraloka Wellness in Kent, CT on October 11th. Comment below if you’d like to join!

The Peace of Wild Things

When despair grows in me
and I wake in the middle of the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting for their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

Wendell Berry

The internet provides a wealth of websites that will inspire you to jump right onto your spiritual path. Despite technology’s reputation for eliminating face-to-face communication, it also can draw people together in new ways and provide information and connection that previously would have been impossible. Below are a few of my favorite websites that deal with spirituality and wellness:

http://www.yogamint.com/

This website contains blog posts about various spiritual matters such as mindfulness, dreaming, opening your heart and mind, and bringing love into your life. The posts are accompanied by a book recommendation at the bottom, which I love of course. There are also videos, specifically a video series on healthy cooking which is both informative and enjoyable to watch. I highly recommend checking this site out!

This amazing website has book and CD recommendations, online courses, and free online events. In fact, this afternoon at 4 PM eastern, there will be a 30 minute guided meditation by Jack Kornfield called Awakening Your Boundless and Loving Heart. If you can’t make it to the event at that time, it is also available a few days later online. Several weeks ago I found free energy healing exercises available from some big names in the field. Here is the link: Energy Healing from Sounds True

You may have read Whole Living or Yoga Journal at some point. They are both great, practical magazines that provide lots of tools to live a healthier and more mindful life. Yoga Journal is offering a free 21-day challenge beginning tomorrow, January 9th, which I will be participating in. What a great way to start the new year!

Super Soul Sunday, 8-11 AM ET OWN

This is not a website, but I do respect and admire Oprah and I really enjoy her Super Soul Sundays. She often shows spiritual documentaries which are moving and inspiring. Last week she showed the documentary I Am by Tom Shadyac, director of movies such as Ace Ventura and Bruce Almighty. Shadyac details his experience of Hollywood, buying into its messages, and then rejecting them by giving away most of his money and moving into a mobile home. Each week is something new, and I look forward to it.

I’d love any suggestions you have, as I am always looking for and open to new resources!
