You’re Making a Scene

Do you ever question why you feel bad? The majority of the time I feel bad is as a result of a thought I’ve just entertained.

Without the thought, I’d feel perfectly fine. I’d be in the moment.

My Song

I welcome the first day of summer by attending a yoga and music workshop with musician and yoga teacher Jack Harrison.

We lie down and begin with some breathing exercises. Jack strums his guitar, recites poetry and sings.

MEDITATION CLASSES
Sharon is currently running bi-monthly 30-minute meditation classes via Zoom.
 
These relaxing classes include mindfulness, meditation, visualisation, breathing techniques and gentle movement/stretching.
 
A regular meditation practice sets the tone for your life in general, giving you space and pause to restore your energy, re-centre and connect to presence and calm.
 
The classes are on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month at 7PM Irish time and cost just €5.
 

Whether you’re a beginner and would like to try it or if you would simply like to practice more and be led by an experienced facilitator, you’re very welcome.

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…

You will receive powerful and insightful journal prompts as well as guided meditations, mindfulness and visualisations.

And above all, you’ll soothe that over-worked nervous system so that you can rest and relax.

GENERAL INFO

Please feel free to contact me for details and to share with anyone who might benefit.

Depending on the type of course, I may record the session. If you can’t attend live, just ask for the recording. Only my face and voice will be recorded.

Please also give me your email address so I can send you the Zoom link. You can reach me at info@wellofbeing.ie or +353871411662.
 
If it’s your first time using Zoom, please check that it’s working before the class begins, find a quiet comfortable spot where you can sit (and lie down if you like) and light a candle and/or some incense to create a zen vibe. You can leave your camera on or off and I will mute all participants so we will not be disturbed. Headphones and an eye mask could be nice but are not essential.

Little Camino

The past month has been weighed down with money worries, career anxiety, fear for the future and feelings of insecurity. This in turn has had an effect on my self-esteem; how I see myself and how I feel when I’m with others.

The main outcome of a much-needed business coaching session this week was that I need to love myself. And yesterday, I had another revelation.

First Dates

A couple of friends recommended watching First Dates, a television series that films real first dates in a London restaurant. I’ve since watched the entire first season and it’s totally addictive.

As I binge on this hilarious reality TV show, I laugh a lot. But I also shed a few tears.

Open your Heart

A dear friend sent me a link to an interesting TED talk on love and relationships given by Mandy Len Catron. The theme of love and relationships had already been playing on my mind.

After watching the clip, I confessed to my friend that I long to share intimacy and affection with someone of the male variety. I quickly added that I’m just feeling impatient and that I should simply be present.

Energy

Today, I decide to spend the whole day chilling out at home. I have a lie-in, I meditate, I eat breakfast.

I reply to a few text messages. I attempt to get cheap car insurance. I have lunch. I read emails. I watch Whip It for the second time.

Just Because.

As you know, I recently injured myself while exercising. What I neglected to mention was that, prior to this, I’d regularly been getting sudden pains in my head.

At the time, it struck me that I probably needed to take it easy but I just couldn’t stop. I was always on the go and I was exercising more than ever. I felt tired a lot but adrenaline was fuelling me and I thought I was doing great.

The Adventure

I awake several times in pain. I might still be able to fit in a workout tomorrow morning before my flight, I try to convince myself.

The following morning, I can barely put weight on my foot. I had felt the twinges in a couple of fitness classes but had chosen to ignore them. I had pushed myself too hard and hadn’t listened to my body. Maybe I need to become more balanced in my approach, I muse philosophically while simultaneously huffing with resistance.

For a Reason

Three things I’m taking away from my Life Coaching session this morning:

1. I’m going to work with the “negative” voice that regularly pipes up with annoying statements like: “You’re not good enough.”
