Are you getting ready to observe lent?
Or maybe you happen to be focused on improving your health and finding ways to do that with ease?
Even if you aren’t inside of my 40 day busting thru addictive behaviors challenge or getting ready to give something up for Lenten season, I wanna come to you today with a message that is timely for you to consider how to come off of autopilot and go within!
Fat Tuesday is tomorrow (at the time of this recording)
What is Fat Tuesday?
The last day of Carnival and the day before Ash Wednesday, Fat Tuesday is the intertwining of a period of festivals and feasts that lead to a time of fasting and reflection. Also known as Shrove Tuesday and Mardi Gras, this enduring celebration has many traditions and deep roots around the world. #FatTuesday
Mardi Gras (French for Fat Tuesday) dates back to an ancient Roman festival honoring the deities Lupercalia and Saturnalia which took place in mid-February. When Christians arrived in Rome, they incorporated the festival into Lenten preparations.
For centuries, this solemn feast prepared Christians for the season of Lent and used up valuable meat and supplies they would be abstaining from in the days to come. Traditions surrounding the day have changed through the ages. Through time and culture, the practices of Lent and Carnival, Mardi Gras
Today I am talking meditation because I believe that it can help deepen your Lenten experience and/or (if you don’t observe) help you honestly get off the default mode network, or autopilot, most of us find ourselves on right now in this world of external validation triggers
We often are run by our DMN, our default mode network , without even thinking
The brain’s default network is a set of regions more active during passive tasks than tasks demanding focused external attention. One hypothesis is that the default network contributes to internal modes of cognition used when remembering, thinking about the future, and mind wandering. Maybe, you’ve never heard of the Brain default network mode before. But you should be familiar with it. You experience it daily. It’s what you sense as the voice in your mind
It is often what sets us up on autopilot (like knowing how to drive home from a party after a few drinks and still getting there!) It also can set us up in a default where we focus on the past too much (depression) or the future (anxiety) and even daydreaming (which can also cause shiny object syndrome)
That is what happens when we are used to tasks and our unconscious mind takes over
It is our DEFAULT
95% of our results are SUBCONSCIOUSLY created OR MAGNETIZED (think law or flaw of attraction)
it can also be what causes us to live in fear or be addicted to fear – or feel lack of focus, daydreaming, adhd and then some
AND if you don’t like your current results – then you can say thank you to your DMN.
And I have good news for you.
Meditation can help be the antidote to this running your life!
You can stop the madness simply by going within and meditating.
But is it that easy?
I know I meditated for years and was still on autopilot (even with meditation!)
Everyone has a shadow and a light within
Meditation can help you set it more towards that light versus the shadow, yet I find it takes training and building muscle for that
It helps us connect with our Higher Self (just like Jesus and most ascended masters teach us the WHY behind this is so key!)
Meditation itself is NOT something you do on autopilot either!
Again, It took me 2 years to really GET meditation to be something that I crave and love and have set up my own checklist to create that set and setting that helps me go within so much faster
Tune in today for that checklist
How do we work together with our minds to help improve our ability to live a more calm, focused life?
AND how can we do this alongside fasting or giving things up that might be challenging for us to do so in and of themselves (ie sugar/alcohol/meat/bread/social media/etc)?
