When meditation is mastered, the mind is unwavering like the flame of a lamp in a windless place. In the still mind, in the depths of meditation, the Self reveals itself." -Bhagavad Gita
Know thyself, it will set you free.
Meditation, practiced consistently is a wonderful mirror.
Why? Mainly when we sit with ourselves without distraction, the truth of what is bubbles up.
Pleasant? Not necessarily, and that's okay, We can do hard things.
Freeing? Most definitely, when approached with compassion, curiosity, and commitment.
Meditation is a powerful tool to connect with all parts of our self - body, mind, and spirit.

Last week we talked about the benefits of prenatal massage during pregnancy to support baby and mom.
What else can you do?
Pregnancy is a significant and intense undertaking for your body, which makes it incredibly important to make sure your body is prepared both for your sake and your baby’s. Afterall, your body is your baby’s home until they are born.
During your nine months of pregnancy, not only will your baby need nutrients to grow and develop, but your bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and immune system will all be affected by your pregnancy. So a good diet, proper nutrition, safe supplementation and healthy habits are crucial for preparing your body for all the changes on your journey to motherhood.

Next Tuesday, 2/14/23 is Valentine's day!
At the Sanctuary we LOVE to LOVE.
I have learned the more we love ourself, the more we are able to freely love others.
What gets in the way of self love or love for others?
Lots of things! Guilt and shame are big ones and I talked about them last week here.
Who am I to take exquisite care of myself?
How can I love another when I don't feel seen, heard, understood?
Many questions, lots of obstacles, and yet one path.
The path is love. The practice is love. The fruit is love.
Spread the Love!!! Gift yourself and someone else with a Sanctuary Gift Certificate.
