Create something special . . .

(Mountain Views News, Sierra Madre published July 20, 2013)

The business of life can draw us into its whirlwind: work pressures often push us away from our TRU selves, and perfection may keep us reaching for the impossible. The methods we’ve learned for exercising our freedoms may not be helpful. Thankfully, we are still free! Free to choose the way we want to live.

Within you there is a stillness and a sanctuary to which you can retreat at any time and be yourself.” – Hermann Hesse

Just 3 minutes with focus can get you there. Free of charge. 24/7. Without special equipment or drugs. To choose it, try this…

Find a quiet spot and close your eyes. Allow the world to become smaller and smaller as you listen to your breath. Breathe in to fill your belly, wide and full. Then breathe out — all the way out, pulling your belly button towards your spine. Continue to notice the movement of your body. Feel the sensations. Feel yourself filling with peace. Hold your breath at the top for 3 counts if you want. Then release… releasing stress and tension as you exhale. Hold for the same number of counts on the bottom. Repeat until calm returns.

Find your spirit, free of toxins and fear. It clears the air and brings new insights. Retreat to your sanctuary. Refill and refresh. You don’t have to be caught up in life’s whirlwind — you can choose a calmer path.
