This is about creating a sacred space and environment. Sleep is natural, but we've lost the cadence for a great night's sleep. Align with the natural rhythm, the circadian rhythm and power down to "doing" and transition to the "being."
This past year really emphasized the us versus them mentality. We dehumanized those who didn't share our beliefs. It's time to reawaken our belief in common humanity. The "Just Like Me" practice is how we do this. This may be one of the most important practices you will ever do.
From Aristotle - "It is much more important to be loving than to be loved." The more kindness you put in the world, your overall chances of living longer increase. How do you measure the amount of kindness you put in the world? You don't. You just keep giving it and being kind.
What if, underneath all your titles, your vocation, your only job was to be a good person? What is the inspired action you want to bring forward today. Kindness is contagious. Pass it on.
Are you participating in activities that don't serve you; that you know aren't good for you? Decision is really powerful. Change is hard. This is all about cutting away that which no longer serves you.
Do you have a reason to get up in the morning that is bigger than you. It may give you a lot of goodness, but it's about having it being directly to something/someone other than you, outside the ego. This is all about the evolution of aging and continuing to grow and serve.
Look for someone today and let them know they are not alone. That you believe in them. There is is much good to do right here, right now. Channel your purpose and passion into kindness and selfless service.
Have you ever been told you have unrealized potential? Do you see this as a blessing or a burden? Bring your worthiness forward and bring your life to an inspired reflection of who you truly are.
In today's video I want to introduce you to four of my favorite books of all time. I have read each of them dozens of times, literally. I know there are many possibilities that lie ahead for you and you may be burdened by overwhelm. Go back to what you know. Find your peace and evolve from there.
So many relationships have suffered over the past year. Intimacy has suffered. Here are some helpful ideas concerning how food can support building or re-building a healthy relationship and intimacy.
Spirituality is true. There are so many highs in spirituality and in "being spiritual." And of course, there are valleys of darkness. There are different sets of values and ways that will emerge as we begin to move out of various phases of COVID. Wherever you are, be true to you.
Nell Scovell, Writer/Director/Producer and Co-Author of Lean In with Sheryl Sanberg joins us to discuss lessons from the book and her experiences working in the male dominated world of comedy.By Gina L. Osborn
We are doing really well at calling others out. Some of it necessary, some of it, not so much. Consider the power of calling in. Look to be a leader to encourage more love, more energy and acceptance.
It's time to begin the dance of healing. There are a lot of things that may have "hardened" you over this past fourteen months. You may or may not be ready to go back to your old life. It's time to soften, reinvent yourself with more kindness, levity, and peace. Let go of the hard exterior.
With symbols of the pandemic beginning to fall away (masks, etc), are you ready to be seen? Namaste is a word honoring and recognizing the light within one another. My soul recognizes your soul. We are one. We are the same. Our souls are connected.
To paraphrase the Stoic philosopher, Epictetus: God laid down this law: If you want some good, create it for yourself. Be it for yourself. Good becomes a contagious for other people. Do good for the sake of good.
When we give ourselves permission to let go of the stress, take a break from work, we see many opportunities unfold in the area of health, happiness, and longevity. Vacation and "time away" helps to decrease inflammation, increase libido, improve heart disease and sleep!
Since I have worked as a doctor in the functional medicine space for over two and a half decades, I am often asked to talk about "diet." Well, that's valid. Today I want to talk to you about primary versus secondary food and what it means to nourish ourselves mindfully and spiritually first.
Surround yourself with authentic, positive people. Life satisfaction is relative to human connection with everyone. It is important to be seen and to see others.
The world needs more compassion, more vulnerability, less judgment, more love, less politicizing. We have an opportunity, as spiritual beings, to be infectious with the idea that we are better together. Enough of the us and them. We are being asked to step up and radiate a higher vibration.
Whether you are feeling "in love" or simply experiencing being in an atmosphere of love, part of your physiology is better for it. Under the influence of love, we are smarter, kinder, less stressed, more perceptive and intuitive, and have less inflammation. We need more love medicine.
What do you need to be seen as? Don't allow your dreams to be overshadowed by shame. Claim your worthiness. Catching our breath has a lot to do with our willingness to be courageous each and every day.
When we lose lean muscle we fast-forward the aging process. Don't assume that muscle loss is a given as you get older. It's not. Sarcopenia (loss of lean muscle) happens, not automatically, because we stop moving our body and challenging our muscles. Here's how to stay strong and live long.
There are opportunities within our cells - to take the good parts and let go of, forgive, or elevate those traits are are no longer serving us. All of our relations are woven into the fabric of our being. We can heal the trauma and the drama.
How do you know when you're making progress? How do you know when you are living on purpose? The answer to both of these questions is that you know when you are bringing forth more kindness. Life is moving fast. It's easy to get lost. Lead with kindness.
One of the greatest ways we can help ourselves heal is to decide to forgive and love ourselves right where we are. You may not have always acted or behaved how your current self wishes you would have; know that that version of yourself believed it was the best you could do in that moment.
The number one biomarker for aging is loss of lean muscle (sarcopenia). This loss of muscle doesn't have to happen. Give your muscles a reason to grow and thrive - as you continue to grown and thrive yourself.
Every morning we have the opportunity to create vibrancy. There is a spiritual momentum that wants to come through. Salvador Dali said, "I don't do drugs. I am drugs." Allow me to take you through a journey of visualizing your best life.
We are all going through something these days. I know how hard life can be. It isn't easy to show up and be kind. Yet, kindness is one of the top qualities we can and do emulate. The way that you show up, the energy you circulate, has a major impact on everyone around you.
Are you devoted and passionate about your vocation - the work you do, about your life? We all need to know the direction our lives are headed. Abraham Maslow talks about self-actualization as the ONLY way to truly embody a life well-lived.
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word guru? A guru is a dispeller of darkness. Set an intention today to be your own guru. Enter through the doorway of common humanity.
Few would argue that this past year has been one of the toughest in our lifetimes. Moving forward, I believe we should focus on - highly functional relationships, detoxifying our lives, less victimhood, less complaining, greater compassion and vulnerability, and finally, forgiveness.
Having a sacred word, or mantra, can help you navigate life and remember who you are. Sacred nature is innate for all beings. Do not filter your life. Have a saddhana in everything you do.
We need to be the change we wish to see in the world. This is about finding the sacred in the ordinary. What is "safe," is risky. Push the envelope on what you think is ordinary. Begin each day with possibility.
Give yourself the opportunity to embody the expression of what makes you come alive. Show the world what is possible. Step in and be the grace. This is what the world needs today.
I'd like to invite you to consider getting outside of your comfort zone, outside your boundary, for self-care. Prioritize how you take care of and nurture your body, mind, soul, and emotions. Have a cause in your life that is "bigger" than you.
We recycled tens of thousands of thoughts each and every day. Life takes the shape of those thoughts, so why not enter into divergent thinking. Name it. Tame it. And lovingly release it.
It took Einstein over a decade to secure a job in academia. Einstein said the measure of intelligence is the ability to change ahead of time. This is about being relevant to yourself. Be passionately curious about life.
Witnessing acts of kindness is powerful for both the giver and the witness of the act. Compassion and empathy are superpowers. They are part of our emotional intelligence and they give way to purpose and longevity.
Every morning we wake up to what I like to call, a vulnerability window, a clean slate. Hormonally we are ready to make things happen and we can optimize this activity in a number of ways - prayer, movement, meditation, food. This is all about growing aptitude, possibility, & positivity.
Do you have unrealized potential? Do you see it as a burden or a blessing? It is time to lighten your load. Dwell in possibility, presence, and purpose. Don't settle for mediocrity.
One of the greatest teachings I ever received was the idea of walking forward in life with a "Strong Back, Soft Front." Stand for your truth. But don't be afraid to welcome compassion and carry a soft front.
Do you waste time worrying and wondering about what might or could happen, but likely never will? I want to talk about negativity bias and future casting. Life is right in front of you now - go live it.
Do you ever feel like you need to just go outside and connect with a tree? This is all about social activism through self-care and connecting with nature. Get your nature fix and honor your joy and your life.
Name it to tame it, to bring light to it, to love it. Seek to be uncomfortable. Self-care and self-love aren't necessarily comfortable. Self-love is the deep work of our lives.
Aristotle coined the term, Eudaimonia, thousands of years ago. It is the reason we are here. It is about being in full alignment with your values. This is the goal of our human existence.
This message is all about becoming a presence for hope and love and getting clear about your purpose and how you can be more loving, more kind. When you're surrounded by people and challenges in the world, remember the light that you are and came here to be.
Selfless service is all about the act of giving without the expectation that anything was coming back to you. It's known as karma yoga and I learned about it many years ago - when I was living in a small intentional community in Upstate New York.
Put love at the top of your list today. We pass through hundreds of doorways every single day, allowing us an opportunity to ask ourselves, what would love do now? Equinimity is the ability to find your way back to your heart. This practice will help you get there.
Our conscientiousness may affect the length of our telomeres. Set forth and intention and a vision for your life every day. Live your life on purpose. Be vulnerable. Be authentic.
