Snack Bag Meditations


For those of you who listen to my weekly podcast -- Psychic Teachers -- you probably have heard me talk about my snack bags.  Every night - in lieu of meditation -- I decorate my daughters' snack bags for school with a fun drawing and an uplifting message.  I do this usually by myself late at night after the kids have gone to bed.  It's soothing for me, it provides my anxious brain with a quiet outlet, and lets my mind drift to where it needs to go.  As I'm drawing and coloring, I am breathing deeply, thinking about my day and talking to God.  It's very comforting.  I don't think I'm a great artist by any stretch of the imagination, and I am incredibly shy about sharing my work.  But so many of you have emailed me asking to see these darn snack bags, that I've finally decided to share some of the ones I've done lately.  I hope you like them, and I hope it helps you to know that in order to connect with ourselves, our higher power and inner voice, we don't have to sit in the lotus position "om"ing ourselves into oblivion.  Every time you are doing something that brings you joy and provides you with a break in your day, you are meditating.  I have friends who meditate while they are baking, exercising, writing, walking their dog and working on their car.  I hope this post inspires you to share more of what you love with the world too!
Being Different Just May Be Your Greatest Strength
