OMTimes: Escape from Self-Sabotaging Habits

How well are you taking care of yourself? Do you take time for yourself, or are there so many distractions in your life that you are last on the list of your busy schedule?
If we are not taking time for ourselves, it’s difficult for us to be giving love to someone else because we run out of energy. If there is nothing left for us, there sure isn’t going to be anything left for anyone else!

Spirituality & Health: 5 Ways to Sit Less to Save Your Brain

You’ve heard that sitting is the new smoking: bad for our hearts, lungs, and a leading cause of obesity. A new study from UCLA suggests that too much sitting is also bad for our brains, and that sedentary behavior is linked to changes in parts of the brain that are critical for memory. Sorry, what was I saying? I work from a computer all day, and as much as I want to move more, it’s really challenging. But if sitting is going to literally thin my brain, I’m incentivized! Here are five ways to sit less, so you can think ….

Inner Journey: Attachment

“The soul that is attached to anything, however much good there may be in it, will not arrive at the liberty of divine union. For whether it be a strong wire rope or a slender and delicate thread that holds the bird, it matters not, if it really holds it fast; for until the cord be broken, the bird cannot fly.”
— Saint John of the Cross

“Attachment to spiritual things is… just as much an attachment as inordinate love of anything else.”
— Thomas Merton

“The tighter you squeeze, the less you have.”
— Zen Saying

A Note from the Universe

Nice job helping raise the sun this morning! The colors over Fiji were especially impressive. The warming of the Adriatic was right on time. A few Egyptians up early enough even wondered if Ra wasn’t back at the helm.

The hungry child in Mongolia said to say, “Hi!” The sad monk in Tibet, “Thanks for the laugh!” The realtor in Minnesota asked, “Are you sure about the farmer’s market?” The dancer in Rome, “Don’t tell a soul…” And the sage in Djibouti says, “You have exactly what it takes to have financial security for myself and family!”

Tell me, any recollection of all your other-worldly to-ings and fro-ings, yet? Or are we still pretending you’re just mortal?

If you only knew…

Daily Wisdom

Perception

“Change your thoughts, and in the twinkling of an eye, all your conditions change. Your world is a world of crystallized ideas, crystallized words. Sooner or later, you reap the fruits of your words and thoughts.”

-Florence Scovel Shinn

Our perceptions are all in our mind. So it makes sense that if we change our mind, we change our perceptions. And when we change our perceptions, we change our reality! We can experience more of the Truth of this wonderful world, the beauty, the peace, the prosperity, the abundance, the clarity. Choose to see it. Choose to live it!

-Lissa Coffey

Beliefnet: 7 Steps to Reconnect With Yourself

Sometimes due to circumstances, a big life change, the dissolving of a long-term relationship, a health issue, or other reasons we realize we have lost touch with our true self. During these times we often experience feeling frustrated, scared for the future, anxious, unfulfilled and stuck. We feel lost because at some point we became disconnected from who we really are. This often occurs as adults try to fit themselves into societal norms, relationship expectations or are just trying to survive to such a degree that there is not the capacity to focus on anything else. To protect ourselves we may tuck away our true nature and shut the door so we can just get through what we need to get through.
