Day 6 of the Feast
Dear One,

Everywhere you are is sacred. Everything is holy. Yes some places and things seem to have more spiritual wattage than others. When humans decide over many years that a place is sacred, it becomes infused with a special energy.

There are so many sacred places that people make pilgrimages too. Each, though visited by tens of thousands, or millions, whether to a holy temple, cathedral, or sacred site, evokes a personal sense of reverence. Though there are so many others, three favorites that come to mind for me this morning where I felt deeply reverent are the meditation gardens of Yoganandas Fellowship in Encinitas, Calfornia, the Virupaksha cave in South India where the teacher Ramana Maharshi sat in meditation for hours, and the lower basilica of the church where St. Francis' body is laid in Assisi, Italy.

Then there is the meditation space my house, I meditate sitting cross legged on my sofa in my living room. When people come to visit,they seem to gravitate to that same spot though there are many places they could choose. There is something that happens when you meditate. It creates coherence in the space, a harmonious energy, because when you meditate, your body and mind settle down, purify, and harmonize. Where do you choose to meditate? How does that affect the space? Share with us on the Facebook Group. We'd love to know more.
Thank you for putting your spirituality first during this time of deep practice. I am practicing with you.

Here's to peace inside and out.

Love, Sarah

Meditation for Day 6.
Don Kollmar guides you into a beautiful meditation where the focus is on your inner light. It creates harmony and a sweet sense of being embodied. I enjoyed it!

Spiritual Practice Tip
Keep going! Whether you meditate for 20 minutes a day or 40, set aside the time to meditate and stick with your meditation for the duration that you commit to. If you set your timer for 20 minutes, you need to complete all 20.
Don’t decide halfway through that your meditation isn’t going the way you hoped or that you are bored. Set a realistic time for yourself and commit. If you are new to meditation, it helps to start with a shorter time frame and work your way up.Staying iwth the practice helps you in so many ways, when you feel like quitting you keep going. You will navigate uncomfortable situations with more stamina and ease. You'll be less reactive, and more responsive to your life.
Living the Feast
One of my favorite teachers, known as the Ammachi, the hugging saint, from India teaches: 

"There is one Truth that shines through all of creation. Rivers and mountains, plants and animals, the sun, the moon and the stars, you and I—all are expressions of this one Reality."

Can you see life that way today?
