We all have five minutes to spare and if we don’t we seriously need to reevaluate our lives. Listen to the music I’ve added below and try my meditation. I run to meditate and this is what I visualize when I get into my zone.
I imagine myself moving freely to the music rain dance style with absolutely no inhibitions! None…zilch…zero…nada! Visualize Jim Morrison dancing around the desert on ecstasy. That’s me but without the psychedelic drug, just high on life! Now there’s a visual!
As my body moves to the music I visualize everything that weighs me down on the surface of my skin. It starts to rain and my cleanse begins. My body ((((vibrates)))) to the energy of the music and like beads of water my murky clouded thoughts start to slowly roll off the surface of my skin. Acknowledging these thoughts will allow you to release them. Your body will start to feel lighter while you continue to move freely.
Your thoughts, now clear beads, run into each other growing as they flow from your freshly cleansed skin. You will start to feel empowered ready to face the world.
Your skin is now silky and smooth covered in a protective oil.
I end my run with the feeling of having my arms open to what ever comes my way. I believe meditation is why I am able to move forward so easily in life. I let go of anything negative that might hold me back. I meditate and visualize this release on a regular basis. It gets easier each time. Any music works as long as you can get lost in it. I like music that has an escalating beat and Madonna’s ‘Let It Will Be’ is one of many that works for me. Sometimes you just have to Let It Will Be.
I just got back from a run and I feel INCREDIBLE! There’s NOTHING better than having every drop of blood in your body vibrating to music created by great musicians!
Music is what feelings sound like ~ unknown quote (thanks H.M)
I am cleansed, clear and high on life! I have no intention of coming down any time soon! If you’d like to join me I’m right up here, the more the merrier!
Vancouver’s very own Robson Street was hit by imagine1day’s official ‘Dancing in the Street’ flashmob on Saturday! If you knew about this event in advance you were able to rehearse on line if you wanted to take part in this choreographed dance! It wasn’t just about keeping the party going that the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics started, imagine1day is a nonprofit organization that is striving to bring primary education to all children in Ethiopia, Africa by 2020. This is one of the ways they draw attention to their cause. And what better place to do it while the streets are literally filled with thousands of optimistic Olympic visitors who are ready, willing and able to take part in any peaceful celebration.
Athletics and education go hand in hand if you ask me. An athletes drive, dedication and discipline along with education is what allows them to reach their goals. With access to an education anything is possible, even a Gold metal at the Olympics! imagine1day allows you to decide where you put your money to help with elements of eduction, whether it’s the roof of a classroom, the water system or educational tools, 100% of your contribution will fund the children’s education project of your choice. Visit their website to find out how you can get involved ! Take a look at what is possible if you really believe in something! Its brilliant really, connecting people to greatness ~
Do you remember that song? “let’s talk about sex baby let’s talk about you and me“ I remember singing it while dancing with my girlfriends, back when it was sort of taboo to say ‘SEX’ out loud! We were flirts and loved every moment of it! We never meant anything by it we were just girls having fun!
Sex sells! It’s everywhere we go. I am not talking about porn sex. There is nothing sexy about watching porn to me. I’d rather be doing it than watching someone else make that ridiculous face.
I am talking about sex appeal. Admit it, you purchase some stuff because of sex and how it’s marketed. Everyone wants to have sex appeal. Some of us have just given up. We don’t think we fit into the standard sex appeal image of having a certain body type, size or shape. If you don’t think you have sex appeal you can definitely get it. Changing your perception is a good start.
For instance I am writing this post completely naked, to see if I feel sexier than when I am in my uniform (yoga pants). Ohhhh let me tell you I feel wayyyy sexier! I just need the high heel slippers with the fluffy feathers on them! (soooo not me!!) If your not comfortable naked then try putting on a sexy outfit or tune in to the show ‘How to Look Good Naked.‘ It’s a great example of when woman change their perception of themselves and eliminate bad habits of dressing down, with the end result being them comfortable in their own skin.
One afternoon I was sitting on a deck with a girlfriend of mine, early evening, downtown. As we sat there girls strutted by one after another. It was hard not to notice. Most of these girls were not the skinny model type. These girls had curves and used them to their advantage. Their hips swung and shoulders swayed with such confidence! Everyone of them oozed sex appeal and knew it! These girls had it go-in on! I think it’s how you feel about yourself and what your wearing underneath. If your wearing monster gonch you feel like your wearing monster gonch. Slip on a black satin pair of panties with a matching bra and voila! Sex appeal! I just spent $160.00 on lingerie and was saving it for some reason. Ya I know, for what? I finally tore into the bag and started wearing them and instantly felt sexier. It’s like you have a secret when you wear pretty lingerie. Your eyes don’t lie when you feel sexy.
Sophia Loren is famous for her sex appeal and sultry eyes. And she was(IS I stand corrected) a curvaceous woman still at 74!
I went to a ‘passion party’ with a girlfriend one night, a first for me if you can believe it! I can say honestly I have never laughed so hard before at what they had just sitting out on the table for everyone to touch! At first glance I would have thought it was a table full of baby toys…until I got closer. I picked up one item and when the voluptuous sales girl told me what it was for I actually dropped it and then almost pee-d my pants laughing with my friend. Wait for it….“A WHAT PLUG? I exclaimed?” I felt like a school girl laughing hysterically with my friend while the sales girl talked so candidly about how to use it !!! My face went red at even the thought that this girl thought I WANTED the explanation! She had done it a thousand times before so it was like she was selling Tupperware. I couldn’t get past the fact that these women were all bonding and story telling of what they tried or had and what were their favorite items. I felt at times like I was in a Twilight Zone Movie or I was being PUNKED. I didn’t know what half the stuff was for! My mouth dropped open more than once. (for sure Bonnie will comment on this but don’t believe her!) I thought it was extremely educational but it got creepy for me when they had cherry nipple cream/lip-balm for everyone to try in the bathroom. I drew the line there. Most of the woman in the room made a purchase, yes I did too. Peer pressure forced me to buy the ‘cherry chapstick’ which I threw out because it burnt my kisser! Yikes that was a close one! I purchased another item ‘behind closed doors’ and it will stay that way, but in hind sight I wish I had bucked up! Elastic Boundaries ladies, just go with the flow!
