Welcome to Meditation Monday’s! Each Monday I will create a new video for you to meditate with. I draw from many different meditation technologies to bring you a variety of breath, mudra, guided and kundalini yoga meditations. This first in the series is adapted from the Kundalini Yoga tradition. Enjoy!
Feel free to check out my other services here.
Definition: taking part, a sharing
Today’s Guidance asks how are we participating in the world around us? Most of us are so busy we are not noticing the birds in the trees or the clouds in the sky. We have become very self-absorbed. I sense that it has a lot to do with just how busy we all are these days. We keep our heads down and plow ahead to get everything done that we need to in a day. We think if we stop and say hi to the neighbor on the street that we will get sidetracked from getting our to do’s done. The question then becomes what are we missing when we don’t participate in life when it comes calling? The answer is connection.
When I tuned into the word more deeply, Guidance showed me that participation has a lot to do with awareness. When I notice the birds singing in the tree my energy automatically connects with those birds and I am no longer separate from those birds. By participating in life around me, it connects me to the birds and to my neighbor on the street and to the people reading this post. Are you up for participating in life today?

Definition: the simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection.
No discernible causal connection. . . Hmmmm. I have different thoughts about this definition.
These past few days events would appear, to the casual observer, that I have very bad luck. Not one to believe in luck I was able to step back and see how The Divine had a hand in orchestrating events to work out in my favor.
On Monday, I broke a tooth while eating a peanut butter filled cracker. Ouch! Having recently moved from Wisconsin to Minnesota I was unsure where I stood with my health insurance. After many, many, many calls I was able to find out that I still have insurance through the end of the month and my tooth would be fully covered as long as I found a dentist in Wisconsin. The closest dentist who could work on me fast was an hour and a half away. I had already had a scheduled appointment with my naturopath for the same day back in Minnesota. I thought I could easily go from one to the other and spend some time in between in a nice coffee shop, which I did.
I was enjoying my book and a nice cup of tea when the scheduler for my naturopath walked through the door. After our greeting, she asked me why I missed my appointment on Monday. I’m like, wait, my appointment is today! Since she didn’t know how the mix up got made she borrowed my phone to see if she could get me in to see my naturopath that day. The appointment was made but that gave me another 2 hours to wait to be seen. Since they give massages out of the same office she hooked me up with a free massage to ease my wait. Yay me!
I got out of the massage and ten minutes later my naturopath was able to see me because his previous appointment ended early. Not only did I get a free massage my appointment with my naturopath was only 10 minutes later than what I thought was originally scheduled.
Synchronicity was able to flow so easily for me because I didn’t contract when all of this went awry. I just went with it. The definition of the word says no apparent causal connection. I believe The Divine connected all these events together for me because I was in a state of allowing. I am not special nor was I being rewarded for good behavior. I simply wasn’t resistant when the opportunities showed up.
