Transform desire into an opportunity to grow.


We all know the most common benefits of meditation. Calming the nerves, changing the brainwave states, reducing stress, emotional regulation, strengthens self awareness, improves sleep, lower blood pressure.

What about the change of identity, beliefs, and who we believe ourselves to be?

One of my mentors was speaking on this topic and what she said was profound. Evolution speaks to us through desire. What is it trying to come through you?  What do you desire to share, lean, experience, teach, feel, understand, and ….. be?

When it comes to getting out of our own way, practicing meditation becomes a great place to begin letting go of our old identity and feeling into openness, listening to the the inner guidance.

The book “the jewel of abundance” by Ellen Grace O’Brien, delves into artha, one of the four aims or desires from yoga toward living a prosperous life.

When you are not living up to your potential you will feel a sense of needing more. Not from an egoic sense where it’s all about you. Rather where you can feel that your skill or your message needs to be shared for the greater good of all.

So this meditation practice will guide you into that space of your deeper desire.

Who am I becoming next?

What do I desire to share, teach, learn, experience, understand, be?
