This is a guided meditation to connect to your inner child. It is a simple and easy tool to create a ritual for yourself each day. Take 3 deep breaths. • GET QUIET + BREATHE • ASK: how are you feeling? • Label the feeling or emotion • LISTEN: What do you need me to know to support you? • At the end of your meditation, look at your photo and silently or out loud, say “You are safe, enough and loved. Self-love is a verb. It’s the nurturing of your spirit.
You don’t have to fix yourself You’re not broken. By feeling your feelings, you return to your wholeness. If you’re constantly fixing, numbing and ignoring in order to be happy, you will always be chasing this destination. Happiness is fleeting – just like any other emotion. By honoring Life’s ups and downs, being with yourself and feeling your feelings fully, you’ll be able to find happiness in the process, build worthiness in your new skills, and trust your resilience that you are brave, matur
The way we would talk to a child is so much different than we talk to our adult self. We’re harsh, judgmental and critical, but you would never be like that to a sweet young child. By connecting to the sweet little girl or boy in you, it’s easier to be kinder and softer to yourself. Creating a practice of self-forgiveness is one way you can begin to deepen your compassion towards yourself and expand your self-love. LMK if this is helpful: www.AudreySuttonMills.com.

This week’s mantra is: “I’m in resistance because I’m about to transform.” When you start to feel overwhelmed and are in resistance: 1. place your hands on your body 2. Take 3 deep belly breaths 3. Identify resistance 4. HONOR YOUR BODY through POWER OF CHOICE The more you practice sitting at the edge of resistance, the more confident and trusting you will get in your ability to move through it.
Commit this week to being more mindful of when your subconscious brain takes over and hijacks the very thing you desire. In that moment, notice it, then label it and choose again. You have the power of choice. Release any fears and habits that block you from receiving the love and support you desire. www.AudreySuttonMills.com

You don’t have to be all, do all for all. Actually it’s pretty impossible. You won’t do it all well. Instead of wanting more, I invite you to want less and be more focused on the very most important things. Focus helps guide you to what is most important and helps you stay on your purpose. If you don’t define what is most important to you, someone else will. People will grab for your attention. Tasks will BEG for you to complete them. What is MOST IMPORTANT TO YOU - and focus on that.
Habit building is hard because you’re literally rewiring your brain. Here are 3 easy steps to create lasting habits: 1. Create easy wins. 2. Design your environment to build lasting repetition. 3. Tack the new habit on to an old habit you’re already doing. Action creates momentum. Discipline is where it all starts. Discipline isn’t punishment. It’s freedom and it does feel good.
Taking responsibility for your own internal state is empowering and leads to freedom and ease in life and your relationships. When you’re in resentment, offended or hurt by someone, see it as an opportunity to turn inward, not lash outward, to view how your expectations of how that person should be is really just a story you’re telling yourself and is not coming from a place of love. You have the power to create your reality by shifting your expectations of it.

The practice of meditation is just a practice to watch your mind and make a conscious choice to come back to your breath, to the sensations in your body, to the present moment, so in your daily life, when you get distracted, feel untethered or become heated from a story in your head, you can come back to your breath, to your body and to this present moment, remembering this moment is exactly where you’re supposed to be. www.audreysuttonmills.com
Mindfulness is being connected to the present moment, to the joy and the magic of life that surrounds you. Meditation is the daily practice of staying present, nurturing your heart and letting go of the story so you can see and feel what is in front of you. 1. Rise 2. Pee 3. Meditate 4.
