10 - Perception & Connection
Common Kindness
by Becky Farley & Candace Little from Mindful Art Co.
11M ago
When you start to learn to pay attention--to wake up to really WHAT IS--your perception becomes more true. And that’s when we can start to change things we want to change and move through emotions/moments/situations that we want to move through. Becky teaches us about inter-connectedness and how we can find the truer perception by expanding what we are connected to. We discuss how Candace has changed her perception about her body by noticing what she was connecting the thoughts about her body to. Once she changed, or expanded that connection, she was able to have a truer perception of her body ..read more

In this episode we talk about how tuning into your voice of compassion is the best way to take care of yourself--and your anger. If you want to change the way you react in high stress or high anger situations, then try meditation--specifically the short one we share in this episode. Scientific studies show that when we meditate we are in effect changing the shape of our brain by flexing the muscle of attention. The same way we go to the gym and do repetitions to increase our muscle, we practice meditation daily to focus the mind and change its neuroplasticity. Neuroplasticity is the ability of ..read more

We increase our suffering when we hold on to things (grasping) and avoid things (avoid things). So naturally, a great way to ease our suffering is to let go and/or address our feelings or situations head-on. How do we know if we are grasping or averting? And what do we do once we identify that? That's what this episode is for. We give you 3 tips to apply to your personal struggle with grasping and aversion, and lead you through a "letting go" visualization meditation that will bring more peace and ease to your day.

Do you often choose to feel pleasant, rather than to be present?? Yeah, there's a scientific reason for that! But it's actually really good for our brains to be present.

Listen to this episode to find out why something as simple as loading the dishwasher in a new way can be beneficial, and some other super practical ways to apply the concept of mindfulness v. default mode network to your life.
