Life can often leave our minds feeling overwhelmed, cluttered, and weighed down by negative thoughts or unnecessary mental baggage. Finding a way to declutter your mind is crucial for improving your mental health and overall well-being. This is where meditation is a powerful tool that helps clear your mind of the mental clutter and sharpen your focus on what truly matters. This meditation technique is designed for clearing the mind, along with additional strategies to maintain a healthy mental space.
In this meditation, we will work through emotional blocks that are inhibiting us from embracing change. Change can bring up some of our deepest fears and inner wounds. When we walk through change with an open heart and mind, we lean into trust and our inner knowing of our ability to overcome challenges.
In this meditation practice, we will lie down to restore harmony to our nervous system and rest our bodies, preparing us for deep relaxation. This meditation will scan the body to bring awareness to tight or tense areas and hopefully find some spaciousness and release.
This meditation is for beginners or for those that need a reminder of what it means to meditate. Through nurturing guidance, we learn to step back from our minds and observe our thoughts like an outsider looking in.
This guided meditation is to help train your mind to shift when needed. Our capacity to control the mind and learn to change our thoughts is one of the most powerful benefits to meditation.
Kapalabhati Breath, also known as Breath of Fire and 'skull shining' breath is a breathing technique that will cleanse, detoxify and invigorate you. It is said to clear out the cobwebs in the brain. I have been doing this practice regularly lately and have noticed profound effects in my life as a result and so I wanted to share it with you. Give it a try for a week and see if you notice a difference in your life. More energy, clearer mind, help with decision making or anything along those lines.
In this short video, we will learn and practice Nadi Shodhana, alternate nostril breathing. This breathing technique is known to calm the mind, ease anxiety, balance the right and left hemispheres of the brain, and bring about an overall sense of balance and ease.
Do this one thing and you can change your whole life. You will also positively impact the lives of those around you. There is nothing that I know of that can have as profound an impact in as short of a time as this practice. It takes less than a minute, only about 15 seconds really. Curious? Give it a try. It's easier than you think. Practice it 2-3 times a day or whenever you are feeling stressed, upset, anxious or losing your cool. It will help. The ironic thing is this is probably the easiest practice out there. The results are calm energy, a clear mind and more patience to deal with whatever is happening in your life at the moment.

Did you know that you can improve your entire day simply by breathing a different way? Yes you can and it is just that easy. In this 5 minute practice I will show you two very easy breathing techniques that yogis have been using for thousands of years to induce a state of calm and relaxation. Try it for yourself and see how easy it is to lift your mood and give you easier access to patience, kindness and love. Breathing helps calm the mind and a calm mind is an intelligent mind. Enjoy.
