One of my favorite ways to spend a quiet day is to dream. I dream about all sorts of things—future books I want to write, far away places I want to visit, new garden ideas for my back yard, just about anything will do.
Letting my imagination take me to new experiences in my headlights me up from the inside. I love it so much!
I like to think of myself as a spiritual person—a girl whose main desire is to be open,
What if surrender is the same frequency as trust?
I’ve resisted surrendering for a long time.

Long ago before you were born, a seed was planted in you.
Your only responsibility is to nurture that little seed.
The seed responds best to love. Your love. Your loving attention, understanding, and care.

I love to meditate. It is one of my favorite things to do. But, when I first began meditating, it was HARD. Thoughts popped up demanding my attention, my to-do-list would grow, and I would feel stuff—emotions that weren’t always pleasant.
Maybe you can relate?
You want a consistent meditation practice. You want to look forward to “sitting on your cushion.” You want to find sacred bliss. But, life gets in the way.
