Energy Meditation

Movement is powerful and transformative.
And we have the choice as to how to play with our energetic state.
Often unbeknownst to us, it can be actually quite quick and easy to change our mood and energy level for the better.
Moving our bodies and being moved by our breath can unblock and release stuck and stagnant energy so that we can enjoy lightness and flow, thus forging a healthier, happier state of mind and body.
This coming Tuesday, we’ll move and shake, breathe, meditate and visualise so that we can tap into the abundance of our life force. We will also practice presence, rest in relaxation and boost our mood.
Tuesday 10th May 7:00 – 7:30PM 🇨🇮 9:00 – 9:30PM 🇬🇷 Recording available.
€5 payable to: @sharonov81 (Revolut); PayPal.me/sharonvogiatzi or click here if you want to pay by card.
** This session is included in the 4-week Meditation and Relaxation Techniques course if you’ve signed up for that **

Gratitude Meditation

We sat overlooking Chania, appreciating the sun’s sayonara.
My sister’s boyfriend suggested standing and saying what we’re grateful for.
I stood and said: “I’m grateful for my wonderful, gorgeous fiancé. I’m grateful that I’m living by the sea in Greece, close to my sister and her lovely partner. I’m grateful that I’m writing a book!”
My energy transformed as I spoke these things aloud. I raised my arms and cheered.
Only one day previously, I’d been feeling down. I know that I have a tendency to focus on all the negatives when I’m in that state, I overwhelm myself with them. I forget all the good things and how lucky I am.
I also know that I don’t want to pretend that I’m jolly when I’m not. So for me, it’s a balance of allowing myself to feel and express, while being compassionate towards myself.
It’s extremely hard to get from despair to joy but gratitude is the bridge that can elevate your mood and your vibration, even if it’s just by a little.
This coming Tuesday, join me for a meditation on gratitude. We’ll move, breathe and meditate, gently soothing and calming, while also boosting our mood.
If you sign up or are signed up for the four-week course in Meditation and Relaxation Techniques starting on Wednesday, you’ll receive this meditation and the next meditation I do for free!
Tuesday 26th April 7:00-7:30PM 🇨🇮 9:00-9:30PM 🇬🇷 Recording available.

Course in Meditation & Relaxation Techniques

This four-week course will give you the positive habits of meditation, mindfulness, deep breathing, visualisation, journaling, gratitude (and more) that will de-stress and unwind as well as invite calm and delicious relaxation.

The course will also enable you to dive into why you’re feeling the way you are so that you can compassionately release blockages and fears and gain insights into what you need and how to move forwards.

Over these four weeks, participants are invited to ask questions and to share any difficulties and challenges so that we can learn from, support and even inspire one another.

In addition to these four one-hour sessions, attendees will gain access to two extra half-hour meditations, which you can attend live and/or receive the recordings.

These meditations will take place on Tuesdays from 19:00-19:30 Irish / 21:00-21:30 Greek time on the 26th of April and the 10th of May.

This course has been devised by a Life Coach, meditation and mindfulness facilitator and holistic therapist, and it has helped many people over the years.

The four-week course will take place Wednesdays 19:00-20:00 Irish / 21:00-22:00 Greek time, starting the 27th of April and finishing on the 18th of May.

€50 for the course can be transferred via Revolut to @sharonov81 or to PayPal.me/sharonvogiatzi or click here to pay by card.

Meet Yourself Where You Are

Some people presume they have to be in an optimal state for meditation – zen, calm and clear-minded.

And of course, meditation is really enjoyable when we’re feeling that way.
But we need meditation most when we’re feeling stressed, overwhelmed and distracted!
However, we must remember not to try to force ourselves to feel good. Instead, meditation allows us to meet ourselves Where We Are.
However we’re feeling is okay. All we do is sit with ourselves in quiet companionship, be the witness to whatever’s going on, and hold space for ourselves.
And when we connect to our breath and practice mindfulness, we regulate our nervous systems.So we can be with ourselves in presence and with compassion.
In my meditations, I always give the option for movement/stretching/self-massage at the beginning because that’s what I need before settling into stillness.
Meet yourself Where You Are at my next meditation this coming Tuesday.

Meditation Challenge

Would you like me to be your meditation accountability partner?
At the start of Lent, some people begin fasting or abstaining from alcohol or sugar or complaining.
Even those who aren’t religious use these 40 days as an opportunity to practice discipline, test strength and build resolve.
If you recognise the benefits of meditation but struggle to do it consistently or find it hard to sit still when you do, let’s become accountability buddies.
For the next 40 days, we’ll commit to meditating (even if it’s for as little as five minutes).
You can choose which style of meditation you prefer or experiment with different types.
Then message me a simple ✅ each day once you’ve completed it.
And don’t hesitate to ask questions/look for tips/share feedback.
In addition to all of that, this coming Tuesday, I invite you to a 30-minute online meditation.
I’ll email you the recording afterwards so you can do it as often as you like AND I’ll send you a list of things you can try during your daily meditations.
The 30-minute meditation is on Tuesday 8th March.
7:00-7:30PM 🇨🇮 9:00-9:30PM 🇬🇷
€10 for all of the above.
Or €5 if you just want to do the 30-minute meditation.

Cosy Meditation

Right now, it’s cold here. 

The sea winds are biting. 

And there are regular storms.

What better time to light some candles and fold myself up in a cosy duvet?

Winter is an opportunity for rest and restoration.

The darkness and ease of being are necessary, oft-ignored parts of the seasons and cycles of life.

Something that really caters to my inner child is when my partner wraps me up in a blanket burrito and tucks me in tight.

There’s nothing for me to do but switch off…

In Western society today, busyness equals success.

But stress and burnout are all too prevalent.

In Chinese Medicine, the yin is as important as the yang.

Balance is key.

So I’ve decided that our next meditation is going to be all cuddly and warm, self-loving and caring.

We’ll create a beautiful ambience with soft lighting and pleasing aromas and we’ll snuggle up with pillows and blankets.

I will guide you in a mindfulness practice, deep breathing and relaxation…

Light Up: A Free Meditation

I have found this year difficult.

I know a lot of the world can relate. For similar and different reasons.

For me, as winter presents the cold and rain, and because I’m not getting all the things I want, it’s hard to see the light, the hope.

But I know it’s there. 

It’s there in the eyes and hearts of my loved ones.

It’s in the sky and the trees and the waves.

And it flickers and shines within me too.

If you’re struggling to see the light or if you want to shine the light of your presence for others, come along to my FREE meditation this coming Tuesday.

We’ll meditate, breathe, release and sparkle.

Please share this with anyone who might need it.
