One Arrow, One Life: Intention and Goals

One Arrow, One Life: Intention and Goals

“An arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. So when life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means that it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus, and keep aiming.” Unknown   An aspect of mindfulness is to set your intention. When you’re a fast-acting multitasker, your mind can become invaded by the thoughts and responsibilities you’re trying to keep track of. While these goals are important to keep organized, you can deal with the onslaught of to-dos by zoning in on a point of focus. Do this by setting your intention each morning and staying mindful of what matters most that day. For more: see setting your intention.

Practicing Awareness: Body Scan

Practicing Awareness: Body Scan

“Without loving-kindness, staying in pain is just warfare.” Pema Chödrön   Being mindful is to have a conscious awareness of the present moment; to allow the full experience of humanness to occur- allowing thoughts, feelings, sensations, whatever shows up to simply exist. The conscious mind is our objective or thinking mind, however the subconscious mind stores and retrieves everything that has ever happened to us and controls 90% of our lives. The practice of being present provides access to the subconscious mind and Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), which contains an enormous amount of knowledge, memories, wisdom and recovery processes that we are likely underutilizing. One of the primary ways to access the subconscious mind is meditation. It can simply be a period of awareness where you stop everything you’re doing and simply pause to notice what shows up in stillness and silence. The Body Scan is one practice that can help you to begin to manage your subconscious mind. Find a quiet, comfortable place to lie down or sit. Put aside anywhere from 5-45 minutes for the scan. The time you allot will affect how slowly or quickly you move from one area of your body to another.

The One You Feed

The One You Feed

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. He said, “My son, the battle is between two “wolves” inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, envy, jealousy, doubt, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence,empathy, generosity, forgiveness, truth, compassion and faith.” The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?” The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”   Thoughts can become things.

Master Your Words, Master Your Thoughts: Mindfulness

Master Your Words, Master Your Thoughts: Mindfulness

“Master your words. Master your thoughts. Never allow your body to do harm. Follow these three roads with purity and you will find yourself upon the one way, the way of wisdom.” Buddha   Mindfulness, which evolved from Buddhist tradition, means awareness, attention, and remembering. It’s about both being reflective (understanding behaviors in terms of thoughts, feelings, and desires) and fully experiencing the fluctuation of mental states with acceptance and without judgement. While this was once a daily practice common in the world, it’s given way to busy schedules, long workdays, and social obligations. The good news: Being present is natural to humans. We’ve simply gotten away from practicing it. By practicing the qualities of mindfulness, you can enjoy the benefits, including improved stress management skills, increased focus, decreased emotional exhaustion, and optimized health (lower blood pressure, reduced chronic pain, etc.).
