A Liquid State of Mind
Liquid Mind (noun)
a mind free of control, resistance, concerns, worries and anxieties; a mind that is liquid— holding onto nothing; detached and fluid. synonyms: peace of mind
Imagine being in nature, holding your open hands under a stream of cool running water. There is nothing to hold on to, the gentle stream is steady and consistent and fluid. The sound mesmerizing. The feeling is freedom.
Imagine staring at a beautiful still lake, wide and far reaching, bordered by tall trees and mountains. Imagine your mind as this lake, with thoughts being like gentle breezes that cause tiny ripples. As the wind settles, the lake becomes still. Imagine in this stillness is the perfect reflection of the sky above, the trees and mountains along the borders, maybe even a few drifting clouds. The sound is silent and peaceful. The feeling is harmony.

Description of Each Meditation:
Track 1: Introduction will cover what the course is about, how it is structured and why, as well as explaining meditation lingo and vocabulary I will be using.
Track 2: Understanding Awareness teaches you how to be aware of your awareness- what exactly is awareness and what does it mean, how to know it.
Track 3: Relaxing the Body and Mind is understanding that our inner posture of calm and stillness is supported by our body and mind postures. It's important to look at the body and the mind and know how to relax them.
Track 4: Using your Breath is another wonderful way to relax the body and mind and move us into that liquid mind state.
Track 5: Feel your Own Energy is a wonderful exercise in being very present with your Self and understanding the boundaries of your body and the unlimited reach of your energy.
Track 6: Grounding to the Earth demonstrates a way to be more settled, calm and out of our heads. A great tool to stop the mind chatter.
Track 7: Connecting to the Universe stretches us to reach for expansion, to feel unlimited potential and opportunities within and around us.
Track 8: Creating your Inner Sanctuary is a necessary piece to establish the safe place within and to foster the repetition necessary to aid in the ease of meditation. After 20 years, I still use the same sanctuary. A good one to do daily!
Track 9: Getting into your sanctuary and learning to go deeper within, really beginning to access that internal wisdom and guidance.
Track 10: Tree Meditation is about using your imagination and feeling the connectedness of all. At once you can feel grounded and yet expansive at the same time.
Track 11: Cultivating Gratitude is a simple easy way to raise your mood or vibration. This meditation is quick and uncomplicated!
Track 12: Letting Go meditation is more of a journey with your self and personal development. This meditation teaches you how to release things that no longer serve you- drop the baggage.
Track 13: Healing Light teaches you how to use color to heal- how to see wellness and wholeness within your body. It's wonderful to do once a month, or as your desire, to nurture yourself.
Track 14: Lose Your Identity is a practice in being who you simply are, not holding on to any identity or roles that you play. When we free ourselves from labels and allow ourselves to just be, we access our own authenticity.
Track 15: Ho'oponopono is the first segment to introduce techniques used for compassion towards self and others. Often times our stress lies within our dissatisfaction with relationships to people, things, places, the world, etc. When we can practice loving kindness and compassion, we can let go of our anxieties and stresses to the outside world.
Track 16: Eastern Metta is the traditional version of the Metta style of meditation when you learn to practice more focused loving kindness.
Track 17: Western Metta is the way 'westerners' are more comfortable approaching loving kindness.
Track 18: Tonglen is a style of recognizing suffering and transforming it within and to in turn send positive thoughts and wishes and desires back out.
Track 19: Putting it All Together is the melting pot of many of the meditations included here. You will find in this one meditation, several suggestions and ideas woven together. I can guarantee that you will wish this were longer.
Track 20: With Visualizations is taking it all together and adding a visualization exercise to enrich and enhance your experience.
