On Silence Silence is a good friend. It allows for the natural progression of things. Still, I remain nervous, anxious as ever to fill the void as I used to with interesting questions, chit-chat, sweet nothings that nice girls like me were taught to utter. I sure did have that nice girl persona down pat. Now what takes the place of nice? On Being A Woman More
Omega_Institute_How_to_Be_Happy_or_How_We_Serve_by_Beryl_Bender_Birch
One day in late March I turned on the television looking for a weather report and happened upon Matt Lauer and the rest of the Today crew perched in front of the Vatican Palace in Rome, covering the inaugural Mass of Pope Francis. The new pope was riding along through the crowds in an open-air vehicle, waving to his well-wishers. At one point the procession stopped, the pope jumped out of the car and ambled into the crowd to greet and bless a severely disabled person. It was a glorious moment. More
Omega Institute How Would You Live If You Knew You Were Being Guided? by Gabrielle Bernstein
So much of the anxiety, stress, and turmoil we experience comes from our lack of faith in the universe. We believe that we need to make everything happen and plan every detail to feel safe. We live our lives controlled by outcomes and future plans. In fleeting moments we reconnect with the flow of the universe, such as when we’re feeling serene on a meditation pillow, gazing at a still lake in the midst of a walk, or sweating it out in a yoga class. Fleeting moments of connection remind us of our truth. But what would life be like if we always remembered that we were being guided? More
Omega Institute 6 Ways to Cleanse Your Mind
Have you ever noticed that when you’re inundated with mental noise, it’s harder to stay calm and be productive—much less tune into your innate wisdom and live your life with purpose? Carla Goldstein, Omega Institute’s chief external affairs officer, observes, “We contemplate the past, we dream about the future, we worry, we anticipate, we fantasize about our lives. More
Omega Institute Free Your Clutter & the Rest Will Follow
Say you are presented with an exercise where someone asks you to draw a map of your home. You would likely start with your front door, or maybe a simple outline of the framework of your house. Once you divided the space with walls, doors, and rooms, you would start fleshing out your map with furniture, maybe starting with your bed, and even adding a bit of character and color. However, what would be missing from this map, no matter how much time you spent, are the pockets, or possibly mountains, of clutter that exist in your house. More
Omega Institute Declutter With Feng Shui & Vastu
We’ve all been in spaces that feel sacred and serene—spaces that inspire us to let down our guard and breathe easy as soon as we step foot in them. Sometimes we sense that peaceful quietude in a cathedral, a counselor’s Zen-designed office, a yoga studio, or a local coffee shop. But we’ve also experienced the opposite: the professor’s office that’s bulging with books and paperwork and the friend’s home that’s overstuffed with furniture. Or, wait. Maybe that’s our home. More
Omega Institute Cleansing 101: How to Be Successful With Your Next Cleanse
How to Be Successful With Your Next Cleanse
Cleanses are to this decade, what low-fat diets were to the 1980s. It seems like everyone you meet is trying one type of cleanse or another, but the results vary from person to person. Some people go on a cleanse and feel amazing, while others struggle to stick with it or worse, end up getting sick. It may not be the cleanse itself that’s the problem. It may be the way we are cleansing. While it feels like a magic bullet to take time off from your usual food routine, to have greater success you want to get clear about why you are cleansing and learn the best practices. More
Omega Institute Put Down Your Device & Pick Up Your Life
Break the Cycle of Digital Dependency
For many of us our computers, smartphones, and tablets have taken over our lives, inserting themselves into more and more places as they have replaced functions that used be done by multiple devices, or by time-tested analog technologies.  Taking notes, listening to music, watching television shows or movies, and reading books, magazines, and newspapers are all increasingly done with the same device. Creative pursuits like photography and playing music are all now centered around a computer for many people. More
Monthly Horoscope for March 2014 Aries (March 20-April 19) More
Suspended in Time
March begins with a cluster of three events, none of which is special on its own, but which combined offer us a moment with many interesting opportunities.  Mercury stationed direct on February 28, after a three-week retrograde. Then overnight, into March 1, we had the Pisces New Moon. After that, Mars stationed retrograde. This is not the time to be a bull in a Chinese restaurant. Take it slow, study the menu, and make choices that actually make sense for you. More
