For today's meditation you will journey to the ends of the Universe and back. You don't have to close your eyes and start willing your mind to go on this epic visual journey. Some very creative people have created a webpage that does it for you! So sit back, relax, breathe deep and enjoy your cosmic journey. Allow whatever to come up that feels right for you. Your mind might slow down and just open into the incredible work done by some fun computer programmers who love space. Or you might start to get lots of insights, thoughts and feelings on who you are and how incredible the cosmic web we live in is. Go with what's happening, trust yourself, and remember to breathe slow and deep. This is your Universe. This is what you are created from. You are the drop in the ocean and the ocean in a single drop.

Meditation Monday is a series of blog posts to help you start your week off with good vibes, relaxation and a deeper, more positive connection with yourself and the Universe. You'll find nontraditional meditation suggestions, like this one, along with the regular stuff (deep breathing, mantras, etc). I wish you a wonderful week!
This video is so fun I had to share! Grab a cup of coffee, sit back and relax as you enjoy the fact that this video has nothing to with anything. It's here simply to entertain you because you're awesome and you deserve fun stuff in your life!
“Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.”
Below is one of my all time favorite quotes, and one I return to repeatedly. It can be applied to so many situations, but for me, it has a very spiritual meaning. During the last few years I've been learning to embrace the idea that meditation and spiritual ascension is not leading to a certain destination. This can be a hard thing to grasp as we so often think in terms of goals and end results. Everything I do in life generally has a start and a finish, a tangible moment of when I've done or achieved what I wanted and I can then move onto the next thing. But the more I dove into meditation, energy healing, ascension and understanding how I am the Universe and the Universe is me, the more it all seemed to unfold bigger and wider, in this never ending spiral of expansion. It seemed like for every step I took the finish line moved forward also. To think of spirituality in terms of a never ending journey at first overwhelmed me. Although my life was getting better, I felt so lost because I did't feel like I was getting it. As I came to understand there was nothing to get, and that there was no finish line, I began to feel better. I have found so much solace in Winston's words, and I now think of it as he said it, as "the joy and glory of the climb." Happy weekend everyone, and may these words touch your soul also and light up your path as they did mine.
