my mamma quote

 “My Mama told me that sometimes people have to cry out their tears to make room for a Heart full of Smiles?

I wish my Mother had given me this advice.

For me, I was given the message it was not okay to cry.

Can you relate???

I lost my mother when I was 43,  just 3 and 1/2 weeks after my father passed away.  I was a single mother, running a Yoga studio and I was too busy to properly grieve.

It feels like this year, almost a decade later, as my heart is healing from another deep loss, that I am finally, fully, feeling all my pain.

It is both a gift and a hardship feeling with an open heart.

Sometimes I just want my Mother to talk too, to comfort me.

Since I can’t have that, I sought solace from a Goddess Amulet  Divination set I have.

I received this beautiful meditation, I thought I would share it, as it may  help someone else as it helped me today.

This meditation is a reminder that love of life, love of self, love of all beings is a powerful union that begins first in your own heart. Envision, nurture and share a healthy and whole vision of love.

 

How might your life have been different, if, deep within, you carried an image of the Great Mother, and, when things seemed very, very bad, you could imagine that you were sitting in the lap of the Goddess,

held tightly….embraced at last.

And, you could hear Her saying to you,

“I love you….I love you and I need you to bring forth your self.”

And, if, in that image, you could see the Great Mother looking to Her daughters, looking to each woman to reveal, in her own life, the beauty, strength, and wisdom of the Mother.

How might your life be different?

Meditation Mother and Child – Infinite Love 

Light a Candle

Bring your left hand to your heart and cover your right hand over your left.

Breathe deeply into the center of your heart and your belly.

With your eyes gazing into the center of the candle, imagine (sense or feel) an iridescent pink and green vibrations gently soothing your “Goddess” heart, pulsing from your left hand around and through your heart center, gently flowing throughout your entire body, returning into your right hand and back to your heart again, soothing your “child” heart.

Let the fiery energy of love intensify as you visualize first being the Mother Goddess and then a small child. Imagine feeling the infinite flow of love that weaves between you, the Goddess and you, Her child.

Feel every cell awaken and tingle. Before you finish, ground the energy. Direct the vibrations of love down through your feet, into the heart of the Earth for renewing love’s life giving energy.

Taken with Thanks  from “Amulets of the Goddess” – Nancy Blair

Blessings,

Happy Mother’s Day!

Today I awoke to a beautiful sunny day with snow on the mountains and I dropped into a contemplation….

That snow at the top of the Mountains will become our drinking water. Then it hit me..the association to  a mountain as Mother Earth’s breast and the snow being referred to as Mothers Milk.

I deeply feel the connection, Yes the sacred connection, that we are all being taken care of, every human, plant, animal..etc The element of  water  is abundant and the Mountains play a big part in keeping it this way. Today I will not take my life or the blessings in it for granted.

Its Magical… My deepest desire for this world is in the name and tag of this blog…. Sacred Connections, Connecting back to Mother Earth and the simple gift of today’s insight fills me with joyful hope.

Have you been inspired, healed, motivated, Loved, Awakened  or all of the above by Dr. Wayne Dyer?

This wonderful, giving. down-to earth man has been a source of changing peoples live for decades and now we can give back to him in the form of healing prayers. He has been diagnosed with “Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia”. I am so grateful to Alison Hamlin-Hughes for starting a facebook group. Blessings and thank you!

The timing was Divine as I was going to be sharing a video about Wayne Dyer in the Love Story for Humanity Video Series I began this month. I had not heard about his illness and so I share it with everyone and a ONE LOVE expereince that happened for me because of Wayne.

In this video share the many coincidences of the number 18 and why this is important to Wayne. He teaches ” the number 8 represents Infinity and when you add a one in front of it you are “One with the Infinite.”

What really had me in awe was today I was looking at a book I have by Shakti Gwain “Reflections in the Light”  it is daily meditations. I have been busy so I went back a few days and was Shocked to see Nov. 18th is on being a channel for healing. I read it at the end of the video…how perfect to do for Healing Energy you may wish to send to him.

The affirmation is “I am a clear Channel for the Healing energy of the Universe”

Join the Facebook group Alison created-and find out dates when healings will be sent to our brother.

Blending  An Ancient Practice with Modern Technology!

I am a bit blown away by this whole process of finding the Cosmic Breath in my departed Mothers Yoga book from 1963 and the process so simple I can teach it today in 2009 on Twitter…this is a ripple in the pond..hmmm

This being National Yoga Month I am sharing a Spiritual Teaching called the Cosmic Breath during Sept. The Amazing part is I can share it most effectively on-line especially by using Twitter. I can do this in real time…and I can work smarter not harder since all my tweets go directly to my Facebook page.I have also added a hastag #CosmicBreath so people can read the teachings all in one place.

  • I have copied these 11 tweets from Sat. Sept 5th  Morning breathing exercise.

Twitter Posts-sun

  1. Good Morning my on-line Family, R you up to a Yoga Breathing Exercise? I Love this new way to be a Teacher, on-line, How cool is that?
  2. Is the sun shining where you are? It is Raining Today in Vancouver so let’s send & receive Love this morn to the Sun and Clouds , Ready??
  3. First bring Ur attention 2 Your Heart, Visualize the Sun, inhale send love from your Heart 2 Sun, exhale bringing Sun energy back to heart.
  4. Repeat sending & Receiving Love to the Sun for 3 to 5 breaths than take a few deep breaths in between. I’m closing my eyes and starting now. ( pause..if you are following along while reading blog)
  5. Did you try it?? I felt a warmth come over me, did U feel anything?? If you are online following, realize you were meant to be here now.
  6. Now let’s pay attention to the Clouds, do U ever do this , What can we learn from the Clouds? Will U try it for a few days, & let me know?

  9. Nothing occurred 4 me with the breathing to the clouds, my first time paying attention 2 them. who knows what will develop over time?
  10. I have just initiated my on-line family into the #CosmicBreath that uses visualization, if U R not inwardly ready it will produce no effect.
  11. If U are inwardly ready a few minutes practice this month of #CosmicBreath will expand the heart 2 exhilarating, happy, harmonious feeling.

Questions that have been asked after posting this teaching are:

This is interesting the inhale and exhale seem backwards than what I am used to, is this right?

How to I know if I am inwardly ready?

Answers to these questions and more will be posted throughout September.

Thanks for visiting,

Margarit Brigham

Did anyone celebrate women or themselves March 8th ? Did you know it was International Women’s Day? Women have had March 8th dedicated to them since 1996. I wasn’t aware of this fact until a few years back. Check out the website for this years theme and how it is celebrated all month long.http://www.internationalwomensday.com

Today, began with me giving a gift to my Facebook Group “How to Become a Golf Goddess” -Discover a Sacred way to play and now I am extending the gift to all my media sources. The gift is based on my own personal IWD Theme.

Theme -Discover how 2009 can be sublime while connected to the Divine. My Gift for all you wonderful Women-May these creative visualizations help you as a beginning step to fully becoming the Co-Creators that you truly are! I share a CD I created that is now on Mp3 and was the bases for my Transformation into living in the Divine Magic of Mother Earth I will be sharing the Amazing Journey throughout March. You will find at my website-
http://www.golfinggoddesses.com/about.html On the page,Just scroll down until you see the C.D cover Meditation Steps to your Hearts Desire and then click on numbers 1 to 4 or the title. This CD was created in 2002 a few months after I used the principles to open my Yoga Studio…I used and still use each of these recordings since that time to live, work, and play in the Flow of the Laws of Attraction and the Path of Least Resistance. All four tracks are wonderful although I would like to particularly like to draw your attention to track number two,Releasing Blocks is the original title- It is a timeless creative visualization that addresses Fear. I have learned we have many degrees of Fear at different times in our lives. At the moment the collective consciousness is going through the fear of transformation. As someone who has walked through the darkness and fear many times I am here to share that it is an Amazing Journey and there is Bliss in the light At the end of the tunnel.

*****Transformation-******** The great loneliness – like the loneliness a caterpillar endures when she wraps herself in a silky shroud and begins the long transformation from chrysalis to butterfly. It seems that we too must go through such a time, when life as we have known it is over – when being a caterpillar feels somehow false and yet we don’t know who we are supposed to become. All we know is that something bigger is calling us to change. And though we must make the journey alone, and even if suffering is our only companion, soon enough we will become a butterfly, soon enough we will taste the rapture of being alive.”

~ Elizabeth Lesser

Joy to you this Day!

I hope your warmest memories of Christmas gatherings fill you with Love  this day.

I would like to gift the world with a guided meditation I created called “Steeped in Abundance.”

You can  share this meditation gift with your loved ones. However, be aware  you may be exposing them to a source of creating a magical lifestyle.

***Please note  you may need to copy above link and paste it in the top browser, sorry on behalf of this service that might not post this as a live link…Once inside just hit the thin bar beneath the title- Steeped in Abundance, you can ignore the big button that says download now****

Living in North Vancouver this year means steeped in abundance alright, steeped in an abundance of snow. This has been a wonderful gift of visual sights, very rare for this next of the woods. I am grateful for the beautiful snow covered mountains and sharing some unique snow photos with my  family and friends on facebook and even on my blogs yesterday.

The snow has brought me to feeling more in tune with the rythmn of winter, the contemplation, slowing down and so through my reflections about the snow. My wish is to help you stay connected to that child filled wonder through a meditation I created that is perfect for keeping the magic of this season alive.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Blessings,

Margarit
