Creating rituals within the day to create a knowingness and a flow. Daily rhythm is more about what activities lead into each other, rather than a schedule. Daily rhythm includes space for meals, nature, play and sleep. Our days flow within and around these pillars to keep us grounded, healthy and happy.

There is no such thing as bewitching hour. In reality your children should already be in bed at this time or they needed a nap. Often meltdowns and tantrums are occurring while trying to make dinner in a typical household. This doesn’t have to be the case. If your children often are whining and crying in the evening before dinner, move dinner up an hour and try putting them to bed when you typically have dinner.

What do we do when we can’t focus on ourselves anymore? I feel like there are whole days where all I can focus on is just getting my “To Do” list completed. Then about an hour in I come to terms with the realization that I am not being. I am not happy. So I take a breath and focus back into the moment. Finishing the vacuuming or the dishes does not make my day perfect. I do like doing these so that I have clean dishes but often I found that we focus so much on the looks of everything that we forget to focus on our mindset while doing it. I created this mediation for you to help open your heart to more joy, peace and a freedom that you might not have experienced in a very long time.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone. I actually saw this on a billboard as I was driving home at 11pm last night. It portrayed the whole of the weekend perfectly.

Believing that peace is available beyond all physical circumstances is a lesson that I have been living the past couple of weeks. I awoke this morning with the knowing that it is Magical Monday and it sets the day apart. I feel the magic in everything I do and see. I will most likely give every other day of the week a name so that each has a special intention for it that sets it up to be noticed. (We already have Wilderness Wednesdays, so only 5 more to go 🙂

Today was the first official Magical Monday in my life. What is that?, you ask. I will tell you. Today being leap year I really felt the pull that today was special. It is a day that only comes every 4 years and it is special. We get an opportunity to see that we do get more time, space, freedom to celebrate. So instead of doing the laundry today, my kids and I spent most of the day playing in the forest. I built a giant lean-to and my kids played in the trees and the meadow. We then went over to their little houses in the other part of the forest and had a picnic lunch and enjoyed the sun. It really was magical. It was a time of BEING. I love that space. So I will continue this ritual of every Monday having the Magical Monday intention. To focus on Being and finding all the magic that is hidden within the day!

We went out to eat and I got a gluten free waffle, but they were not vegan and loaded on what I though was pure maple syrup, turns out it was maple flavored high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and I got to pay the piper, the entire next day. My body can not handle HFCS and neither can my son. After his renal biopsy, that we are still waiting to hear the results back from, the nurses gave him a popsicle. For the whole next day not only was he in pain, but he had those disgusting sulfer burps and a stomach ache. Poor thing, I know not to allow them to feed my son again. They said I couldn’t give him the green juice I brought but advised to a HFCS popsicle being an ok alternative.
