Let me be honest with you: I love cosmetics and beauty products. Always have, always will. While I am merely a Sephora “Beauty Insider” and not “VIB” or “Rouge” status, I must admit, these things delight me. And, as you know, the things that delight you are good for your spirit. 😉

I recently purchased an eyelash primer, which you coat on your lashes before applying mascara. It’s interesting and not wholly necessary, but my point with this story is this: I was having one of those “thinking too much” moments. I was prepping to do videos, and thinking too much about nothing concerning videos, and I decided enough was enough. I gathered all of my energy and focused ONLY on coating my East Indian eyelashes (thanks Dad) with the eyelash primer. And then, coating them with mascara. That was all that I focused on.

And it worked.

While I felt a tad ditzy focusing ONLY on doing this, I reminded myself that this is the essence of mindfulness, a practice that is extremely therapeutic. By focusing only on the task at hand, you make your entire life a meditation. You are in the present moment, the now, the only thing that really exists.

All else is extraneous.

We are trained to be completely on top of everything at all times. To multi-task. To be doing and thinking of many things at once, for if we do not, something will surely slip through the cracks.

But all of this doing-ness can be over taxing to our minds and bodies, not to mention our spirits. We forget to breathe, to really experience the moment as it’s happening, to literally BE HERE NOW. Too much doing-ness amounts to distraction, which weakens our energy.

One of the most beautiful things about clairvoyance is that when you are doing a clairvoyant reading, in order to be good, you must focus. Your attention cannot wander. Your entire consciousness is completely focused on delivering a reading and energy healing to the person you are working with. And there have been many times in my life where I have found this to be a complete relief, for it allows me to take my mind off of myself and focus on another soul. It really is a gift.

You might not be able to master mindfulness immediately, but what I have noticed is that if you allow for clear moments to come in, you will feel relief. A classic example for me is trying to not be on my phone while with my son at the park. I watch him play. He likes this, because he’s one of those kids who’s always looking to see if I’m watching him. I notice the trees and the sky and the other children. I simply pay attention, and it does feel very good. Sometimes I feel guilty – like I should be checking emails and reading the news and monitoring the stock market – but that doesn’t need to be done 24/7.

Life is to be lived, and to do so, simply calm your thoughts, observe, see, and feel. It really is OK to do this…and not only is it OK, it’s marvelously good for your mind, body, and spirit.

That’s all for today. I am going to now try and be mindful! But remember, if there’s anything in your life that you need assistance with, I’m here to help with readings, energy healings, on-demand meditations and my psychic development training program. So just reach out! 🙂


My son Ivan is 5 now – almost 6 already! So when a viewer asked me to talk about maintaining a spiritual practice when you have small kids, I was thrilled to try and address it.

I haven’t talked a lot about spirituality and spiritual parenting and all that because frankly, I am still in the throes of it and just maintaining. I am not in “expert” mode. In fact, when Ivan was 2, an entrepreneur asked me to create a course and/or a series of meditations for new moms and I had to tell her I had NO IDEA how to help with that, and also I didn’t have the time, because I was still kind of overwhelmed.

To be honest, when you have even one young child, you don’t get much (or any) time to yourself to focus on things like your spirituality, meditation practice, brushing your teeth, or going to the bathroom in privacy.

So first things first, the one thing you can do without a doubt is practice MINDFULNESS, the art of being fully and totally engaged in the present moment. Really in the moment, appreciating the moment, being 100% totally and completely present.That is a whole spiritual lifestyle if you will, and if you just commit to that when your kids are little, you will be a superhero.

Another thing you can try is to carve out time for your practice, no matter what. Like time in the evening after they go to bed, no matter how tired you are, or time in the morning before they wake up – if that’s at all possible. Nap times can work, if your kids still nap. Otherwise, if you have a partner, call on that person to give you a break at regular intervals so you can focus on your practice.

It is no easy task to juggle doing it all when you have young kids, so be gentle with yourself! If all you can squeeze in is 10 minutes a day, try that – and/or if you want to use this time to devote to mindfulness, it is just about the easiest thing you can do, to engage completely and be here in every.single.moment. In retrospect, I feel like if I had decided that that was the thing I was doing when Ivan was little(r), it would have been easier.

So if you have little ones at home and would like to maintain your spiritual practice, I wish you all the best! It can be done and it should be enjoyable and simple. And once they go to school, you WILL have more time to gather your energy. 🙂

How to Get Grounded.

,

 


Before I launch into today’s chat, the Mindfulness Diploma Course I created is still free for you guys only – so if you’re interested, click here to get it: http://ofcourse.co.uk/course/mindfulness-diploma/?promo_code=TEACHER_KRIS100.

So, on to getting grounded. It’s mega important to be centered and grounded because if you’re not, you tend to be spacey, not really fully present, and you have a hard time manifesting things because you’re not 100% in your body. And I haven’t met a soul who likes to have a hard time manifesting!

There are many ways to get grounded, and I talk about a few of the big easy ones in this video. I especially love music, and though some spiritual people may argue that Notorious BIG is not high-vibrational (and I get it because the subject matter is dark and controversial and there are bad words), as an artist and an icon, this guy had it dialed in and it grounds me. It’s very root chakra, all about survival on the earth plane. When I reference him as a hero, I am saying that despite his very, very hard life and tragic death, he made good music and he inspired people (just listen to JUICY).

Any music that you love will help you get grounded. Other ways to get grounded are to walk in nature, breathe deeply, connect to your hands and your feet, and be fully aware of your surroundings at all times.
