Shine the Light on the Elephants in the Corners!

According to the Free Dictionary by Farlex, the elephant in the corner is defined as “An obvious truth or fact, especially one regarded as embarrassing or undesirable, that is being intentionally ignored or left unaddressed.”

Are there any “elephants in the corners” in your home, workplace, or social groups (including on social media)? If so, you might like to consider shining the light on the elephants in the corners! If you do not feel comfortable verbally speaking your concerns, then you could craft clear and compassionate emails to voice your truths in writing. These actions can bring about much understanding, clarity, healing, peace, and resolution.

Shine the Light on the elephants in the corners, and breathe the wonderful cleared air!

Let me know how it goes! 🙂

Lots of Love to Everyone,
Teja

StarFire Friday Blessing: May You Accept Things As They Are

 

May you be with yourself exactly as you are in each moment.

May you understand the roots of your feelings.

May your weekend be blessed with loving kindness, happiness, and cheerful thoughts.

May you accept things as they are.

 

Dear readers,

Here’s a funny one to help you remember today’s blessings:

Accepting Things As They Are = ATATA!

By the way, “accepting things as they are” doesn’t mean that you give up on your visions and do nothing… Rather, it means that even while you are working towards your goals, you can relax and be okay with What Is happening right now… You can find small ways to Happy Up each day, even if you are currently having a difficult time.

Cheers to a weekend of Atata! 🙂

With much love,
Teja

Two Simple Healing Practices

“There are many refreshing and healing elements in nature around us and in us… get in touch with these healing elements to get the nourishment and healing you need… nourish yourself with joy and happiness so then you are able to help people around you.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh, in a video in which he answers a question from his one million Facebook friends: “How can I fight the injustices of this world without being consumed with anger, bitterness, outrage, and resentment?”

Here are two simple ways to practice getting in touch with the healing elements around you and in you ~

~ Each time you see simple beauty, think to yourself, “There are refreshing and healing elements all around me and inside me.” ~ For example, each time I see the sunlight on the fresh green leaves outside our bathroom window, I am reminded of the refreshing and healing elements that are available all the time.

~ When you drink water, use your pure drinking water as a bell of mindfulness. Let the water be a refreshing and healing element that you bring into your body as you sip it throughout the day.

I hope this post was helpful to you!

May All Beings Be Free of Suffering.
