Safe2Heal EveryDay – Ten Practices

Simple meditation is the heart of the everyday practice.  Just sitting quietly, watching your breath and letting your mind quiet down as you learn to truly rest in the expanding awareness between thoughts and every “thing” else that arises.

These ten practices work together.  Meditating builds attention and awareness with a loving embrace.  Which leads straight to forgiving yourself and those around you, early and often! Approaching and avoiding illuminates the power of your intention. 30for3, pausing to breathe deeply uses your increased attention and awareness to respond to – more than automatically reacting to – what happens.  Water, air, exercise and enough sleep round out the basic ingredients.  Journaling may be very helpful. Reporting what happens re-enforces your commitment.  Doing these practices every day increases your health and well-being.
