Grace. It’s closer than you think.   I have committed to taking 2-5 second pauses repeatedly throughout my days lately. My intention is to drop all thoughts and simply feel what’s left, what still exists when I let thoughts go. Dropping all thoughts is not always easy, but I’m getting better at it. It helps that it is a short commitment, but I’m seeing the power in the repetition. So tonight, just before I began my evening neb, I paused. In this pause I was blessed with feeling Grace. The Grace that is always here, so close, already inside and wrapped around everything. The Grace that gets disguised when I try to manage the life that I pile on top of It. And even that has Grace in it, is Grace. There is no escape. And I’m so glad.     

Pause, reflect, receive….booster jots

The Booster Jots concept is about recognizing that we have a choice, taking the time to pause and feel into what we need, and opening ourselves up to receive accordingly. What’s within is so much more powerful than anything that you can acquire from this material world. So let’s experiment. Let’s try adding a pauses into our lives, even if that pause is only for 5 seconds before we move on with our routines. (In the case of booster jots, this is practiced by pausing before doing a treatment or taking a medication, but in the rest of life it could be before doing anything- before eating, responding on Facebook, doing your homework, entering a business meeting, greeting your family…) Let’s see what happens if we drop all thoughts and “have to’s”, for even a few moments, to direct our attention inside. Let’s see what shows up. Let’s see what we...

Ok, let’s use tonight’s time to talk about the fact that YOU ARE A MIRACLE.   Regardless of who you are or what you are doing, feeling, saying, or not saying, the fact that “you” exist as “you”  in this very moment is nothing short of a freaking miracle.  Do you hear me?  YOUR EXISTENCE AS YOU IS A MIRACLE.   According to Dina Spector of Business Insider, “The probability of you existing at all comes out to 1 in 102,685,000  — yes, that’s a 10 followed by 2,685,000 zeroes!” This is only one figure (there are several other similar figures using different specific formulas), but what is clear is the fact that you, being born as you, is a pretty significant feat. Using this particular statistic that means that there is only a 1 in 102,685,000  chance that the universe aligned in just such a way that you could exist.   The odds that the...
