Namaste. And so it is. Choice. I've been pondering choices lately. I am not so much interested in sharing the types of choices in this space. I am more interested in sharing a concept: choice is life.
What do I mean? Well, consider it. Aren't our choices, both the small ones and the big ones, what make up the fabric of our life?
Whether we did or didn't want something to happen, we are still in a position to choose. We may choose what to "do" next. We may choose what "not" to do next. Or perhaps we may choose being over doing. Meaning, we choose to be peace, positive, possibility...and allow our being to inform our doing.
When we are rooted in being infinite peace and love, we are clear and confident in our choice, no matter what we choose. These are the choices that are life affirming and life altering. Choice is life.
If you have not yet seen the movie "The Choice" I suggest watching. It captures the power of our choices and how they impact our life so beautifully. A love story, no doubt...based on a book by Nicholas Sparks. The story plays out based on choices made as well as those not made...
Today during yoga I was reminded again that not choosing is also a choice, and a very powerful one. Not choosing happens in 2 ways.
The first way is by making a conscious decision not to choose. The second way is by being unaware of what we are not aware of and having habitual patterns/ways of being choose for us.
Think of it as sleepwalking through life or allowing other peoples expectations to control us.
Notice if you are falling into judgment or blame after reading this. Exhale and see it for what it is. Learning. Choice is life. All experience is an opportunity to awaken so we may choose differently.
My prayer is that we continue to expand our awareness with practices like yoga and meditation and also by having friends and mentors who lovingly hold up the mirror for us.
As we expand our awareness to include all of our choices, may we have the courage to choose the options before us that are life affirming. May we choose the options that help us become the best version of our self.
May we create a life filled with so much peace, love, joy, and gratitude that it overflows to all who cross our path.
Choice is Life. Our Choice is Our Life.
Look at strong emotions as a kind of storm. If we know weatherproofing techniques, we can come out of it intact. A storm may last an hour, several hours, or a day. If we master the ways of calming and steadying our mind, we can pass through the storms of emotion with relative ease." -Thich Nhat Hahn
None of us are immune to the storms of life that often bring with it intense emotion and incessant thought. In fact, most of us are addicted to the thoughts period.
This is why whenever I am asked the question, "what is the #1 thing you suggest to manage stress/experience peace/improve well-being"... my reply ... meditation. Cultivating a consistent practice of meditation practice will help you create an inner sanctuary for the mind. And yes, it is possible for anyone, if it happened for me. Take it from Georgette as she explains her experience here.

Mental Peace by Stephanie
One of the ways I experience mental peace is by helping others do the same. Recently I had the pleasure of leading Georgette on a meditative journey she described as a "haven in the mind". She describes her experience so beautifully here. May all of us experience the peace that arises when our mind is given a "sanctuary" to rest.

A Shamanic Journey to Remember
With Stephanie @BWS
Monday, 5/14/18 from 6:30PM-8:00PM
Sometimes we get lost. It's part of the human condition. Whether we lose our self to relationships, family, work, habits, addictions, and/or to life itself, it's time to remember. And it's okay!!!
Join me for this special shamanic journey to remember who you are, why you are here, and what brings you joy.
We will start with a group energy clearing, followed by meditation, ending with guided journey (visualization) to remember.
There's nothing you have to do to prepare...come with an open heart and mind...no expectations...wear comfy clothing...and relax :)
RSVP & payment required in advance due to limited spots.
Register on-line here or email Stephanie here.
