Welcome to the Eleventh Edition of the "Living Light News!"
Our goal is to provide you with an integrated approach to physical and energetic wellness. We offer pioneering healing technologies and advanced tools for spiritual growth.
Living Light creates sacred space for individual sessions and group classes that will empower you to live healthier, be happier and grow faster
Donna Mitchell-Moniak, founder and spiritual director of Spirit Fire Meditative Retreat in MA, offers all of us a challenge - to begin each day by engaging! To be engaged is to not be in reaction. Did you know that we are generally in reaction the majority of our life?
We identify with our emotional body and thus react in terms of moods and feelings. For example, when the alarm clock goes off, how do we respond? If we groan and move into a place of anxiety over our laundry list of tasks to be completed, we are starting our day passively. This reaction suggests how we will live our day. Why not choose to live consciously and proactively?
Every day is an invitation to live more abundantly and freely.
How do we do this? By engaging!
Donna suggests that we allow a simple smile to completely engage us. If we make the choice to don a smile when the alarm sounds, we are choosing all that goes along with that smile. We are consciously choosing to have joy through more of our day!
Are you thinking to yourself... "What if I don't feel like smiling?"
Might I suggest faking it until you make it?
I remember an experience in middle school when a teacher was mercilessly teasing me. Every chance he had, he called me "Smiley." At the time, I wasn't one for smiling. After weeks of teasing, I couldn't bear it anymore. I decided that if he was going to continue to call me by that nickname, I'd give him a reason for doing so. I CHOSE TO SMILE!
That smile changed me. It allowed me to meet the world. I began to live life in a more proactive way. Who would have believed that that once passive and shy student would become the student body president the following year? Mr. Blaser was a challenging teacher for me, but one for whom I'll always be grateful.
I have the same gratitude for Donna Mitchell-Moniak and her current challenge to engage the day! I believe it is one that none of us can afford to ignore.
How do we start?
Simply ... each morning SMILE!
Then, practice resting in that smile ... breathing in that smile ... letting it land in every cell of our being. If we don't know how to do that, let's FAKE IT! Then, who knows? Maybe over time, we'll see how one simple decision can profoundly change the tone of all our lives.
Smiling with you,
Julianne Santini, Manager
