Next CHI FOR YOURSELF: Secular Meditation- Intentionally Nonreligious

picture of john kobikYou deserve to experience meditation’s rewarding effects on the body and the mind, even if you’re not interested in religion! Some in our CHI FOR YOURSELF community have said they question meditation because of its religious trappings. But our scheduled guest on the next edition of CHI FOR YOURSELF says meditation actually is an age-old secular practice with lots of scientifically verified physical and psychological benefits. Rick Heller is an author, meditation teacher and co-founder of the Humanist Mindfulness Group at the Harvard Humanist Community. He emphasizes the importance of meditation with a practical, evidence-based perspective.

Be with us on the call this Thursday November 19th at 4pm Eastern, 1pm Pacific time at chiforyourself.com. for Rick Heller and Secular Meditation.

Be Well!

Marlise Karlin sends CHI FOR YOURSELF an S.O.S.


picture of john kobikI always enjoy hearing about new methods of meditation and the inward journey in general. On last week’s CHI FOR YOURSELF we learned about the Simplicity of Stillness Method (S.O.S.) from Marlise Karlin.

Marlise was a teen runaway. She became an award winning film producer after overcoming a dramatic childhood of abuse and addiction. When she underwent a series of life altering energetic experiences it shifted her perception and future life purpose. If you weren’t with us on the call you can hear the interview by clicking on this player…


Here are some of the show’s talking points:

  • Marlise’s early life and addiction
  • How she got clear on what she wanted
  • The main features of the Simplicity of Stillness Method
  • A bit about Epigenetics and Neuroplasticity
  • SOS for those with an established meditation practice
  • The business world’s reaction to SOS
  • Depression
  • Helping someone with an addiction

Be well..

Notes to Start the Week- January 20th, 2014

If you logged on to chiforyourself.com for the Meagan McCrary interview on January 9th you noticed that there was no Google+ Hangouts on the Start page. I’ve been doing test posts on Hangouts and I believe the problem in getting our embed code has been worked out. I’ll have more to say in a future post about who our next guest will be. If you have yet to hear the interview you can get caught up here…

Meagan McCrary

It seems that everyone, from athletes to celebrities to high-powered executives and politicians to stay-at-home moms and college students, is practicing yoga. Our Chi For Yourself guest has put together an encyclopedia of different yoga styles as a reference for those new to yoga and experienced yogis and teachers alike. But Meagan McCrary’s approach digs deeper than the physical descriptions of the practices to include everything from a style’s philosophical foundation and teaching methodology to what-to-expect and health benefits. Meagan is a certified yoga instructor and freelance writer. Her teaching path has been greatly influenced by Anusara yoga founder John Friend as well as Noah Mazé, Elena Brower, and Martin and Jordan Kirk. Her yoga, wellness, and lifestyle writings are widely featured in print and online in publications including Elephant Journal, GaiamLife, and Glo. Meagan McCrary is the author of Pick Your Yoga Practice: Exploring and Understanding Different Types of Yoga.

Law of Attraction: New Years Resolutions that Create Effective Change


Expert Author Lorna Sophia LevyMake resolutions that are more about how you want to be – how you want to relate to the world – than about specific changes in behavior. They should be spiritual goals. Changes in behavior don’t last unless preceded by a change in consciousness. New Years Resolutions, to be effective, must be about changing our consciousness to be receptive to our desires.

Let your resolutions take the form of affirmations. That way you can say them or sing them or chant them to yourself, have fun with them, and remind yourself of the energy you are stepping in to.

One of my resolutions is the same as last year: to know that “I have multiple sources of passive income that support me lavishly.” This one is in wonderful unfoldment. I developed a product this year that is doing better than I expected and I have a lot of ideas to create in the future. I’m even hiring a virtual assistant to help me. This is so much fun! My work this year is to appreciate what I have while expecting more to come.

My second affirmation is that “I consciously, constantly practice the presence of Spirit within me.” This one is huge. It encompasses just about every spiritual goal I have and it influences every part of my life and my behavior. It says I am always aware that Spirit is my Source – so there can be no lack or limitation. It says that Spirit is always present and acting in my life – kind of like having an imaginary friend, except its not imaginary – more like an invisible friend beside me (or in me) at all times. It says I am always allowing Spirit to express through me – so I am non-judgmental. I speak kindly – even when aggravated. It causes me to allow my good to flow to me – to keep the channel open for the flow of love and energy and inspiration and comfort. This affirmation keeps me healthy because where Spirit is there is only vitality, ease and health.

A few years ago one of my resolutions was to more often find thoughts that feel good and do more things that I enjoy. This year my affirmation is to “Love myself”. Similar, but broader this year. As I love myself I bring to me all things that are loving. That means bubble baths, and fresh flowers; satellite radio and laughter; friends who brighten my light not diminish me; and it means appreciating myself, encouraging myself, and saying kind words to me. The only relationship we really want is between self and SELF. And that self love is the key to allowing. Self love leads to feeling deserving which leads to more allowing. Self love also lets us feel a little bit of the vast and endless love that Spirit has for us. I want a taste of that this coming year!
