2020 has surely been a year of change! We have watched our world face a pandemic, seen the human spirit be tested and watched acts of kindness big and small capture our hearts. I am hopeful that this year, although tragic in the numbers of lives lost and the increase in homeless and unemployed, that there has been some increase in self awareness. It is the holiday season and although we may not feel like it, this time of year it is important to check in with our hearts. What does your heart need at this time? That’s why I am sharing these three simple treasures with you.
As my free gift to you, I am giving you a 10 minute downloaded meditation which allows you to connect with your future self. This is a very powerful self awareness meditation that allows you to travel forward in time. I recommend doing it at the end of the day when your mind is relaxed and have a pen and paper handy to jot down any insights.
I often describe grief like waves, they come and they go. Sometimes grief is so deep it feels like an undertow pulling you down to the bottom of the ocean, other times a simple thing can remind you of your loved one and make you smile. There can be tremendous sadness around the holidays and it can be even more important to reach out. Here are some wonderful resources I feel will assist your soul.
The Center for Grieving Children has some amazing articles, resources and book suggestions here https://www.cgcmaine.org/resources/

Over the past 9 years, through gifting complimentary sessions to families of children who have died tragically and the Meditate and Donate series we have raised over $100,000!!

The organizations who have received donations are The Center for Grieving Children, River Tree Arts, Olympia Snow’s Leadership Program, United Way of Kennebunk, Kennebunk Land Trust, Save the Children Foundation and A Place to Start.
