Om Maker Wellness Plans are created specifically for you. These one on one sessions are designed taking into consideration your individual constitution and needs to help you achieve the balance, health and wellness you deserve.

Restoring balance begins with discovering your unique mind-body type.

  • Breathing exercises and meditation techniques

Meditation Wands for Children

IMG_2606

These are fun to make and YES they really work!

I cannot take credit for these. I got this idea from the head teacher at my church, who by the way is an amazing spirit and caregiver. Every other week I help out in the preschool class and have seen children quiet their minds using these.

It’s beautiful.

The idea is to use the wands like mala or rosary beads.

Starting at one end of the wand, take one bead between two fingers and take a breath ” In and out”

and then move on to the next bead until you have taken 10 breaths.

Sometimes we call these “Wishing Wands” where we make a good wish with every bead,

then we bring our hands to prayer pose with the wand in between our palms and rub our hands together.

(As if your warming up your hands)

After your wishes are all warmed up

Open up your hands and blow the wishes out into the world.

Here is what you will need to make some:

crafting wire

1/2 to 3/4 inch size beads (larger beads are easier for the little fingers)

 pliers and wire cutters

  • Have your child pick out their favorite beads. I made these with 10 beads each.
  • Eyeball and cut enough wire to string the beads on and leave about 1 1/2 to 2 inches extra .

    Using the pliers make a small loop at one end of the wire.

  • IMG_2614

    Start beading. Or better yet let your little one do this.

  • Close up the wand with another loop, but leave about an inch extra wire to allow easy movement of the beads.

Pass them out to the little yogis in your life!

21 Day Meditation Challenge

So about 12 days ago I signed up for The Chopra Center 21 Day Meditation Challenge. I thought, “No sweat.  Challenge? No. This should be fun! I usually sit for a few minutes every morning after my breathing exercises anyway…”

So this is how it goes:

Each day for 21 days, you listen to a guided meditation for about 2-3 minutes and then are left for about 10-12 minutes listening to new age music, diving into your subconscious and swimming around in your stuff. SCAREY! Not fun. Well maybe a little. This is how it’s been so far…

Day 1: “Wow that was SO relaxing. Is that it? I don’t know Depak…”

Day 2: “Ooh. A little more to chew on thanks D.”

Day 3:  “Wow.”

Day 4: “Ouch.”

Day 5: (whining) “Depak made me cry.”

Day 6: “Okay…that was weird.”

Day 7: “Yes. Good.”

Day 8: “What???!!!”

Day 9: “I think I need a couple days off to soak this up.”

Day 10: “geeezzz…No really, I need to go clean the chicken coop or something…”

Day 11: Inhale

Day 12: Exhale

On and on it goes. Where it stops? WHO KNOWS?

Next time they have this challenge, and your looking to do some house keeping…may I suggest signing up for it. It’s good stuff and it’s free.

Be well my friends~
