Bodies weren’t made to sit all day at work, then sit all night at home. But there are solutions...
Josh Axe, founder of www.DrAxe.com, one of the most widely viewed health sites on the web, walks three times a day, for 20 min. Add to that his belief that he is guided by a benevolent God - and his walks are a time for him to be more receptive that inner Guiding Intuition. Which I know we all have.
Josh Axe makes several million $ a year, and his main strategy is to give a ton of value for free.
Intuition is natural to all of us. Men have it and women have it too. It is a spontaneous inner knowing, and it is your best friend.
Intuition has led me to some of the best things in my life: including my first (and second) spiritual teacher, the greatest love of my life, and much more. But intuition has also led me in smaller ways too, to making many of my best decisions.
Here in this article I will share some tips to increase your intuition, as well as illuminating some of the pitfalls that arise in working to live more intuitively.
I have been a meditator for 17 years, and it has been life changing for me. I started with guided journeys on audio-tape, but today I am part of a very dedicated meditation community. To me, meditation should feel good. It is a time of relaxing, coming home to yourself, and allowing yourself to rest. Here are my top tips for helping make meditation an enjoyable experience:
First, give yourself a quiet and beautiful space. Make it warm if you're cold, open a window if you're hot. Stretch for a minute or two, to get your body more relaxed.
Someone once said to me, "Wealth isn't having more, it's needing less".
But this isn't about having nothing. We live in a material world, having nothing is unreasonable.
But you don't want to have a lot of stuff, you want to have the right stuff.
The thing is, 'stuff' can easily clutter up our life, keeping us 'busy', and getting between ourselves and others.
'Stuff' can make us miss what matters.
We go for stuff for many reasons: buying stuff is satisfying. (But briefly and not deeply). Plus, stuff is safe. Stuff won't break your heart or reject you, stuff won't cheat on you or leave you.
But stuff requires a lot of energy: you have to take care of, store, clean, maintain, and move your stuff. Which all takes time.
Nowadays, I look at almost every purchase with: "How much energy will this take to store/clean/maintain/move, etc?" I don't just look at what it will give me - which is what desire does, but also what it cost me - in the long term.
We really want to spend our time caring for people, not stuff.
