Meditations In Wonderland

I want to keep my soul fertile for the changes, so things keep being born in me, so things keep dying when it is time for things to die. I want to keep walking away from the person I was a moment ago, because a mind was made to figure things out, not to read the same page recurrently.

I know a lot of you who follow me are vegetarian/vegan, so I had to share this recipe with you because it’s too good not to! Even if you’re not a vegetarian this is a great dish, and easy to make. We had a potluck at work and this dish was a huge hit with everyone, so much so that we made my coworker, Lindsey, send around the recipe!


She has an amazing blog that I’m addicted to now, she’s an incredible writer, raw and honest! The best kind. You can check out her blog here.

Seriously you guys? This is such a huge milestone for this little energetic corner and I couldn’t be happier.

You all have done nothing but uplift the vibrations of this space, you’ve brought me countless smiles and helped me get through writing my novel.

So to give back, next week (after I get back from spending Easter weekend with my family!) I will be posting the first excerpt I promised of my upcoming novel, Meditations In Wonderland, and hosting a book giveaway for The Compass of Now, by best-selling Thai spiritual master!

More to come next week, but I just wanted to let you all know what to look forward to, and to thank you all for your endless support.

Namaste, hugs and kisses,

Anna

When something negative happens in my day, I usually get so upset by it and let it ruin my entire day... How can I let tiny meaningless things go and not have them affect me so much?

Hi beautiful soul,

Just before I read this question I re-read a passage in Jane Robert’s The Nature of Personal Reality. I don’t believe in coincidences, so I want to share it with you. Maybe it will touch you in some way, if I was meant to re-visit it at this time:

"You cannot affirm one emotion and deny another without setting up barriers. You try to hide what you think of negative feelings in the closet of your mind, as in the past they closeted insane relatives. All of this because you do not trust the aspects of your individuality in flesh."

As you read the passage, observe what feelings came up without identifying with those feelings. You, personally and on a soul level, or not these negative events and feelings. That’s the first step, fully feeling this.

I would like to recommend a book that may help you here. “A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle can help shed some light on this. He refers to a concept called the Pain Body, which might be coming into play. In the meantime, I hope that you make the time to either meditate or simply be with your Self when you first feel yourself spiraling into the negativity you will catch yourself in time to remember that you are the observer.

Namaste, and wishing you light on your journey,

Anna
