2016 Reflection – Projection

by Gisele Theriault January 02, 2016

2016 Reflection – Projection

2015 is leaving the station, disappearing in the mist and never to return. Will you give yourself the opportunity to reflect on the year passing? It’s that time where we up the ante on our goals and commitments that are too often created from a place of self loathing and feeling inadequate. Perhaps this year we give thanks for the simple blessings that are always around us and allow us to find warmth in our bodies and in our hearts. Let’s also thank our struggles and our suffering, for in them may be profound teachings that support the wisdom it takes to guide us in the existence we seek.

Thank you for the inspiration to expand our collections this year and grow the website beyond jewelry to everything that supports meditation, a mindfulness practice or simple a less stressed life. If you’ve not visited it lately, please do. We made it for you. I’d love to hear what you feel. www.tbds.org

It’s 2016, let’s reach for the sky with a sense of wonder and freedom. I believe in you, in me and the gift of this amazing opportunity that is already here.. life.

 

 

Also enjoy a special 8 minute New Years meditation by Melli O’Brien (founder of the Mindfulness Summit) This meditation invites you to sit with the reflection of what counts. Click on Melli’s picture and enjoy! I did it this morning and it was really nice.

signing off with a lotus and a smile,

On the topic of retreats, a friend recently shared scientific research she found (brain scans incl. long term studies of individuals) comparing mindfulness/meditation practice in retreat settings confer more benefits than daily practice. If you take two individuals with identical lifetime hours of meditation practice, there are more lasting changes in people who have gone on retreats (brains and behaviour).

This week I was thinking about how challenging it can be to be who we are and live in our place of heart when there are so many directives and expectations that we should behave in a particular way. How we present ourselves to the world and how we think are so influenced by our upbringing, peers and culture...

Mindful Necessities West to East
Mindful Necessities West to East

Rumi says "Let the beauty of what we love be what we do." I'm counting my blessings, both having carved a life by creating contemplative jewellery and now also enjoying the opportunity to create experience for people though retreats. 

 It took a long time for my body and mind to readjust from east to west, as it always does. Between the 10 hour time difference and the culture extremes, the practice of coupling patience and tenacity definitely came in handy.
