Maintaining a New Level of Consciousness

Posted on March 7, 2018 at 12:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Dear Readers,

Have you ever had a new insight…or new awareness…or feel you are at a new level of understanding and then loose it? I’ve actually wondered about this for years. My chiropractor for over 30 years in southern California shared with me once that he saw shifts in people, time and time again, and then 3 months later, they would come back and the challenge he had cleared had returned.

A couple of months ago, I went on a retreat for 12 days, and when I returned home, felt that I had had a shift in my perception, a heightened awareness. Then within 48 hours I saw it beginning to vanish.

The same thing just happened recently. I had been on a retreat, returned home with a heightened awareness and then felt I was getting caught up in the “old ways”. So, I’m recalling how this challenge was solved last time and hopefully this time too. It was so simple….all I had to do was…

SIT IN SILENCE…for a longer time than usual!


I recall that last time, all I needed to do was to sit in the silence, longer than usual and to be still and allow the pull of the outer world to fade away. When I did this, I found that my connection to the Presence returned. The pull of daily life was not so strong. For me, sitting in the silence, brought me back to the heightened awareness I had experienced during the retreat.

Amazing, how easily the mind forgets what we really need. Living in the world, there are many pulls on our attention, many things calling to us... grocery shopping, work, family challenges, children, parents, house cleaning, emails, etc. No wonder we are pulled away from being in the quiet, sitting in the silence.

And yet how wonderful it is to know though, that just going into the silence, can support us in keeping and maintaining a new level of consciousness!!!


However, it’s my experience that…

The deeper the shift in your consciousness, the more time in the silence is needed in order to stabilize the new level of awareness.


When one takes the time to sit in the silence, letting go of the day and all that happened, letting go of whatever the “mind” is thinking about, a new clarity comes, living in the “higher” state comes more spontaneously, without thought, a peacefulness returns.

I’ve also observed through the years, that if I’m very attached to a particular challenge, or something very important in pressing on me, I may need to sit more than once to really clear away the confusion. This is why, creating a daily practice of sitting is so important. When you create a life-style that allows for daily practice then many of the little challenges are handled by such a practice.

A Conversation about Life Styles

Posted on February 11, 2018 at 12:55 AM Comments comments (0)


This week has been so busy for me! I host a study circle at my home on Wednesday and Thursday and then on Friday, I began a new meditation group. In addition, once a month, I hold two extra group lessons for my piano students. (I’ve taught piano for decades now.) However, the week-end group lessons are new and much fun, but do require much preparation, for I may have 10 children in my home/studio all at one time!

All of this together, made for a very busy week. And as I reflect on this experience, I was reminded, that this was very unusual. Usually, my days have a wonderful flow to them, which much extra time.

So, I’ve decided to talk a little about life-style and wondered how YOU create a life-style that works for you?


For myself, being a senior, and working part-time, it’s been pretty easy to create a relaxed life-style MOST of the time. About one year ago, I wanted to increase my meditation time to I have made sure that most of the time I do not schedule any early morning appointments or lessons. This has made it very nice. I almost always have the option to stay in meditation as long as I wish.

Piano lessons were every afternoon, from about 3:30 to 6 pm until about 6 months ago. At that point I decided I wanted a 3 day week-end, so re-arranged my teaching schedule. I’ve certainly enjoyed having Friday’s free now most of the time.


Since I work with many children in regards to piano lessons, I see many families. And I see so many different types of life-styles. I know one family that has three children and have decided to schedule most of their activities on two days, so they have the other three school days free. Others have activities each day of the week.

I remember years ago when my children were young, that getting ready to go to their ballet lessons was very challenging. Finally, I said we do not need to go! These lessons are “extra” and not required! In the long run, we did end up ending the dance lessons, because it wasn’t a priority for them, and it certainly wasn’t one for me.

Sometimes, though parents feel that their children are missing out if they aren’t involved numerous lessons such as dance, piano, art, and sports. And yet, what is a child missing on a daily basis, if they do not have any down time? If there isn’t sufficient time to play after school, or to just sit in their room and day dream.

I’ve created some questions for parents as well as some for kids, to reflect on to see if your current life-style is desirable. So often, we can get into a certainly type of life-style, and just don’t think about changing it although it really isn’t working. So here are some questions that may support you is reviewing your life-style and seeing if it’s right for YOU!:)


Do you often feel you’d like an extra 6 hours in the day?

Do you have time to talk to you children about their day and really learn what happened? What they liked? What was difficult for them?

Do you know who your children’s friends are?  Do you have time to arrange for play-dates? 

Are you able to take time during the day for self-reflection?

Are you able to come together for meals with your children, for an unrushed time of sharing?

Are you able to get a sufficient night’s sleep?

Do you have a schedule worked out so that getting ready for school has a flow?

Forgetting your current daily life, what would make the perfect day for you? Are there some parts of that that could be brought into your life today?


Do you have some “free time” every day to do nothing?

Do you ever feel rushed and there is too much happening?

Do you have enough time to talk to your parents about your ideas, your feelings, or to ask questions?

Do you have enough unrushed time to do your homework?

Do you enjoy the extra activities you are involved in? Would you like more of them? Less of them?

What would your perfect day look like? What would you do? Is there a way to bring any part of that into your life today?

Although there will always be things to do during our day and we can’t make life perfect, we can step back and reflect on our schedule to see if “over-all” it is right for you and/or your family.


Do you have enough free time during your day?

Would you like to be more involved with others than you are now?

Do you find meaning in your life?

Do you take time for self-inquiry? For reflection?

What would your perfect day look like? What would you do? Is there a way to bring any part of that into your life today?



This month I’m taking time to fine-tune my daily schedule. I’ve found a new way of actually making a couple of practices, happen on a regular basis! These pieces have been so helpful for me. First, I’ve decided to WALK immediately following my meditation in the morning. I’m so pleased with this arrangement. It’s making a walk happen almost every day. And it’s not a big decision as to WHEN to walk…it’s just happening after meditation.

And second, I’ve combined doing YOGA on a regular basis, with listening to a spiritual talk in the evening after meditation. This too, is really working.

And a third, I’ll just mention briefly, is that I’ve fine-tuned the foods that I’m eating. I’ve taken a few foods out of my diet, and I’m finding that what I’m eating now is so satisfying. Perhaps I'll share more about this in a future blog.


As I’m finishing this blog, I’m reminded of the truth, that if you change just ONE thing, it can shift everything.

So, I invite you to look at your life, and if you’d like a change, just start with ONE small shift…and see what happens.

I’d love to hear from you. My email is


Namaste, sharon
