    I love how I was pointed to this site….I can’t even tell you how. I am the one currently enrolled in a course of finding your purpose. I’ve been the Silicon Valley madness furthering other people’s dreams. The shadow artist, the back round singer, the one behind, not knowing or fearing stepping into my own. Just last week, I realized this course is all left brained, masculine. I need my heart involved! This is exactly what was missing! I am going to incorporate both. But, I will start with this heart connection. Thank you Vanessa!

    Thank you, I had a hard time as my hubby is terrible ill and yes my mind was all over the place but I believe in time this will help me a lot.

    Reply
    • Vanessa Loder

      I’m sad to hear about your hubby Donna. When my mom was going through cancer, I found I had to do a lot to ground myself and give myself compassion or I got so depleted as a caregiver. I hope this meditation challenge gives you a place to rest and feel a little bit of calm in the storm.

    I put meditation down as a task I’d like to delegate I’m suppose to do it every morning for 3mins but I don’t do it as often as I should. This email came at the perfect time. Because it’s a 30day challenge so I’m more eagered to delegate these 5 min meditation guidings

    Reply
    • Vanessa Loder

      At first I thought you were making a joke about “delegating” meditation to someone else…haha. That would be kind of funny to hire someone to meditate on your behalf πŸ˜‰ Glad you’re making the time for the practice Shari.

    Yes, is a everyday for ever challenge just to see what is without judgement, to see just the way it is.

      Yes, I agree Amy, and all the more reason to cultivate observing without judgment during meditation. It’s a great way to start to quiet our inner critic.
