Assignment 1
A.)What is your interpretation of the Higher Self?
I think its the pure essence of who we are. that part of us that never fully changes. that part that for most of us holds onto our faith, our ability to love, have compashion, trust others (even after you feel like you cant), always helping us find our way back to our selves and our faiths. the part of us that keeps us intune with the universe, even when we feel like we are not. sorry that is the only way i can explain it.

B.) Write down what you hope to accomplish by the end of this course. This can be anything, not necessarily religious related. It can be to keep up on your house more, be more creative, learn to meditate, cook, garden, write, etc etc… anything you want to change about yourself for the better!

To find myself again, and learn not to let my self be consumed in my roll as mother and wife. To help me find the motivation and confidence to finish the projects that i start, and learn to focus my creativity. And last but most certainly not least, to help me find my footing on my path again.

1.) Have you tried meditation in the past or are you currently meditating?
Yes, but its been a while
2.) What do you like/dislike about meditating?
I like the sense of calm i find.
3.) What are your strengths and weaknesses in being able to accomplish finding time to meditate?
My weakness is not asking my husband for more help with the kids so i can have the time to do it.
4.) What kind of meditating are you wanting to try, like guided meditations you find online or the meditation spot in your mind or the candle or anything else..?
I think i would like to tr the candle and the meditation spot in your mind thing.

I think it's a common difficulty of the modern life-juggling mother that there never seems to be time to finish projects, or get to as many jobs/chores/activities as you would really like to do. I think there's a lot to be said in concentrating on one thing at once, as Jackie suggested to me, as there's a feeling that you're accomplishing more.

Lesson three

well i am focusing on de-cluttering my bedroom and throwing out/donating all of our unused items. i am about half way there. i felt really good about donating six bags of clothes to one of our local collection boxes. only draw back is i also donated all of my old maternity clothes , oh well at least it will go to someone in need, and i can afford to buy more. now i just have to finish sorting out the baby stuff and re organize my shelves and i will be done. once im done there i will move to the living room and then its a total energy cleaning of the whole house after that.

Lesson 4

What is grounding to you? well for me it sitting on my roof all alone and listening to the night as i watch the stars, releasing all my pent up energy out into the night.
How often do you ground? not nearly as often as i would like or need to
How do you ground? either by sitting on my roof at night orby grounding the extra energy into candles, but i only do that if i have done a recent self cleansing. or some times i will take a bath and let it all seep out in to the water.
What do you like about grounding? i like the de-stressed calm feeling.
