Welcome back to the second half of our Dakini’s Den series. Today’s talk is an excerpt from one of this year’s SHE School classes. In it, I discuss the power of the mind.
I’ve learned over the years just how powerful my mind is. I can create heaven or hell around me, depending upon my thoughts. A Course in Miracles teaches that every thought creates form on some level. Can we just take that in for a moment?
On retreat, after a few consecutive days of being quiet, moving more slowly, resting, staying off my phone/computer, and meditating a lot, my mind starts to slow down. Rather than being a victim to my unconscious program, I can begin to see my thoughts, one at a time.
Then I can choose: Is this a thought I want to think? Who will I be tomorrow if I think this thought today? What will my life look like a year from now if I think this other thought instead?
It’s worthwhile to take some understanding how the Universe (and your mind) works so that your life can work better. Today’s talk will help you do just that.
In addition to gifting you a slice of “retreat time” in your day, this talk is also a taste of what I’ll be teaching next year in A Year of SHE: A 12-Month Women’s Spiritual Practice Community (and its mastermind level, the SHE Leadership Circle.
After a lovely group of women joined us during the early bird window last month, today marks the beginning of the regular registration window. For the next two weeks, I’ll be welcoming women into this new, expanded version of the former Red Tent and SHE School, before we officially begin on January 1.
