What’s your meditation practice look like? How is it going?
It’s not just about wealth. It’s about a abundance of anything in our lives. Love, happiness, joy, problems, luck, sadness, etc. It’s about having too much of anything. We can have too much sadness, we can have too much joy. But nobody complains about too much joy in our lives do they? But sadness is another thing. Too much sadness leads to depression if you allow it to overtake all aspects of your life.
I prefer to be grateful and see all the goodness in my life. As I sat in meditation today after prayer I got the overwhelming sense of abundance. But definitely the good kind. Joy mostly. And gratitude for that joy in my life. For all the wonderful people in my life. For all the goodness life brings to me each day. This attitude of joy really helps me relieve a lot of stress I feel too. I am looking at my “problems” with joy today. Knowing in my heart of hearts I will find more joy out there than I do sadness. I will find happiness along the way. I want to look at life with rose colored glasses some might say. Is that so wrong, hell no! Try it, find the joy in your life and see if you can’t help but smile a little. Even in the darkest of night, hidden in the shadows we can find a little joy.
Take it from someone who is depressed I have chosen to look at life differently on a daily basis. Now mind you my ego and my logical mind get in the way. Too much trying to control and too much trying to be perfect. There is no control but that over which I choose to think and there is NO PERFECTION my friend. It doesn’t exist. There is a flaw in everything, how we choose to embrace those flaws and see life’s beauty is our own right. Choice is key. I’ll say it again, you have a choice in all you do. Choose wisely that which you choose to focus on.
My little story, I have been trying to control with my mind too much in my life. In meditation this morning, releasing that control felt so good. I give it up to spirit and choose to rely on spirit for guidance. Spirit will always guide me where I need to go, and gratitude for abundance in my life is what I am celebrating today. I have chosen to give up the control and embrace the joy. To focus on the joy, to focus on something else besides the control. Rule with my heart not my head. Get out of my head and into my heart. Connect to my highest good self. Connect to spirit. That’s joy to me.

The art of essential oil diffusing is my favorite thing for my home environment.
I pick up new and fun blends wherever I can. I am always excited to try new things. BUT not all new ones are favorites. You do have to try and see approach.
I’ve shopped for high end oils and lesser grade. Since I only use them to diffuse into my environment, I usually go with a lesser grade less expensive oil blend. I do enjoy some single notes, lemon, lavender, and peppermint. Actually blending all three of them together makes a wonderful uplifting smell.
My favorites are:
