Slowing Down

Slowing down is good

As you age you may notice that you are slowing down a bit. It may take you a little longer to get ready for the day, or you may have some aches and pains that you did not have before.

As you move into yoga asanas, be aware of your posture; shoulders are back and straight

Morning and Evening Meditations

Allowing yourself to see your yin and yang: Your energy balance upon rising and resting

When you try to force something in life, it does not seem to work, so if you are trying hard to work at learning how to meditate; slow down and let it happen.

Go with the flow of the 2 sides of your life; balancing yourself for the day

A good way to start learning how to meditate is when you are getting up in the morning.  If you are an early riser as I am, do not get up right away, even if you are fully awake. Take this time to meditate because you are already lying down and comfortable.

In my dreams

In my dreams I see people who I haven’t seen in many years

 

I have a circular lily garden in my yard. It is like a circle of energy for me when I watch it grow

And then I begin to think when I rise that it is time to visit that person.
If your dreams are full of wonderful gatherings with others, then you too should begin to visit  those friends and relatives that you dream about because you never know how long they may be on this earth to have those treasured moments.

Tiger lillies for mom

I put some flowers on your grave today for your birthday. You always had a beautiful sunny day for your birthday, and today is no exception. It is going to be one of the hottest days of the summer this year, and you enjoyed sunshiny, hot days.

I chose tiger lilies from my garden; 3 of them for each of your children.

Tiger lilies are so strong they grow like weeds. And you too were stronger than anyone I have ever met.
