The purpose of life, being grounded and present.

Hi there, I have been pondering about life, how as time passes, it is embraced more and at the same time, there is an awareness that what I once knew and felt to be like my ‘true answer’, my beliefs and understanding etcetera, continues to evolve. We all know that the only constant in life is change, that is for sure. Today we have some musings and questions to contemplate about life. For many of you, this could be waffle and lacking substance. Yet, some readers have shared that they look forward to what I write. Either way, it would be great to hear from you, if you wish to connect with me in one way or another. Thank you.

Do you wonder what life is about, whether there is a purpose and meaning to it all? My experiences are that being grounded, and present helps us be in touch with our life’s purpose. We are more receptive to guidance and intuition, including answers to our enquiring energy. The alternative may be a too busy mind and life, which takes us back to the past or into the future. Our energy leaks out and is all over the place when this is the case.

It definitely helps to live as much as you can totally present, rather than off in dreamland and away with the fairies. It is widely accepted that there are filters which we live and view our lives through. These have been referred to as veils. We have experiences that we draw to us by what we think and our actions, which is in accordance to what our focus is on and the energy that we send out.

In other words, we send out our own unique wave of energy, expectation, via either conscious or subconscious patterning and programming. Our personalities adapt, learn, grow and contribute to what develops as our own individual understanding about life. Our belief systems develop from a little baby and every one of us is a small part of the whole, we are all part of the same energy and connected, whether we have been aware of it until this point, or not.

So true is the saying “we cannot always change our circumstances; what we can change is our attitude”. We can decide to accept our life and make the best of it, as it may not be possible or the ‘right time’ to do anything else. As time passes, circumstances may change without input from us often for the better. Then we can review our life and the direction we are headed in.

Following are thought provoking questions you may wish to take paper and a writing utensil or the computer to begin a self-dialogue. If you haven’t yet dialogued and wish to receive instructions in this area, then let me know and I will email information to you. I enjoy dialoguing and find it helps me a lot.

Some questions for you to ask yourself are: Are you enjoying where you are in your life at present? Do you feel stuck in a rut, settled, without opportunities to keep evolving and growing? If not, what would you like to change? To have more of? To have less of? How is your support, outside and self-support going? Are you there for yourself? Do you feel dependant on others and if so, in what way is this happening? Are your main family or friendship relationships healthy or formed through weakness and fear-based patterns? Are they co-dependent or inter-dependent relationships?

There are no right or wrong answers, rather opportunities to recognise where you are at in humility and to gather together a handle on where you would wish to be heading.

Next time I will talk about being present and greeting anew, which all the above relates to in many ways, as to be grounded in our life and focused, we do need to be enjoying the present moment. We do also live a happier and more fulfilled life when we greet each situation, moment, person and ever incident in a fresh way. There are many reasons for this and I hope you look forward to what it will be.

Cheerio for now. Lots of love (and laughter). Lynette xo

Meditation Made Easy – the Benefits and How to…

Meditation is made easy if you have the desire and need to do it

Learning to meditate is made easy with the right tools and instructions and you would probably agree that if something works for you and you feel the results, you will keep it up. Yet learning anything can be trial, error and a lot of faith that it will provide the benefits you seek, which requires considerable persistence.

My Meditation Journey

This all began in 1963 when as a student of the Gita School of Yoga and for many years I followed the Eastern meditation ways of how to meditate. This involved focusing on the breath, a mantra and candle meditation, spoken of as witness consciousness, which brought varying results.
I last wrote a meditation article when facilitating a Laughter Yoga session for staff at Wantirna Secondary College in 2009, entitled ‘The Basics of Meditation’. Since then I have had far greater personal growth success since joining a modern day mystery school. Recently it felt like the time had come to renew my How to Meditate document, partly because I frequently share about meditation and self-care with people.
Personally I have found greater success using this method, which firstly attends to one’s energy field. It is about clearing negative energy and invoking positive energy, together with cord cutting and clearing.
Here, hot off the press is my new version of how to meditate which I felt to call Meditation Made Easy. It is fairly concise, explaining about What Happens in Meditation, the Benefits of Meditation, How to Meditate and finishing with Meditation Tips to Make it Easy.
I wish you luck and welcome comments and questions about the practice of meditation.

Love and Laughter,

12 Month Letter to Future Self

There is considerable power in manifesting your future, goals, aspirations, when we use tools that can assist us when we need to find more clarity in our lives. Writing a letter to yourself which will be opened twelve month’s from the date of writing is understood in some cases to wield an almighty power in your life. If you can write it from a non-linear perspective, with the mental body, your mind, disengaged, the letter has the potential to become quite magical. Here is my take on it and I wish you well in this lovely task. Please contact me with any questions, suggesions and to share your experience, as I am interested to hear how you go and would love to hear about it.

Best of luck,
Wishing you Lots of love and laughter,
Lynette Mitchell xo

Seniors Festival, Time and Self Renewal

The Seniors Festival is coming up in October and is celebrated nationally. This blog was prompted and written firstly as an article for a local newspaper, when I was pondering a topic related to our laughter club. It struck me that due to October being the month for seniors Australia wide, it would centre around seniors, leading on to self-evaluation if we choose to do it. The Ferntree Gully Laughter Club is involved with the Seniors Festival in Knox, we are on page 19 of the booklet. Please click here to read, thanks a lot and take good care of yourselves.
Love,
