If you can begin to see your life as a celebration - as joy - as unlimited possibilities - as pleasure - as meaningful encounters, opportunities for loving-kindness, connection, care - you would live it this way. To celebrate your life you must be willing to look for and enjoy the beauty that exists everywhere - in every moment - you must be willing to find the good in others and yourself. Feel inspired. Best listened with your eyes closed, allowing the words to wash over you. Namaste Dorothy

Expected
This lesson was about what I expected. I already live as prescribed herein. Look for the good in life, and in those I encounter in that life...accept the flaws without judging them overtly.

This reminded me to celebrate even the smallest things in life. Enjoy and live life with zero judgment. Thank you

I shouldn’t label people are right or wrong, good or bad because there’s always an in between and it’s only an opinion based on how I feel so I should see the good in people when I don’t agree with them and look at their intentions rather than how I see it.

I loved “you must be willing to look for and enjoy the beauty that exists EVERYWHERE”.
even in the everyday mundane, there are reasons to be grateful.

No labeling
The best way I’ve learned to react to someone’s anger or negativity is to take my emotions out of the equation. When one is emotionally invested, it gets messy...your feelings get hurt. Why allow yourself to be hurt by one that is casting stones. Pray for your enemy more than you pray for yourself. Rejoice you aren’t the one digging desperately to hurt another. Be thankful you can lay your head on your pillow at night with a clear conscience.

Possible
I love to believe that anything is possible. That if we put our minds to it we can do anything we want. We can be great if only we found a way to get past these mental barriers that we put up. I’m a huge Disney fan and I love in cars three when he says “I just never thought I couldn’t.” We can do anything if we believe we can.

I felt calmer as I focused on the voice of the speaker
Taking those few minutes out of my day will help me today, tomorrow and the day after tomorrow to feel calmer, and more collected

Self love
I’ve heard that self love is great but have been so disconnected from source that I didn’t know how to celebrate myself. Reflecting on the things I’ve done well and the experiences I’ve conquered has given me a starting point to be appreciative of my self.

I think I needed to hear this right now, I was afraid I was losing my positivity because of the events going on in my life. But listening to that bought a little bit of positivity to my day and was a good reminder for me on how I need to be thankful for my life.

I felt peaceful listening to this, which is nice in my hurricane of a life. It was a nice reminder to find the good in every moment, in every living being, and celebrate that moment, that person. Bring more awareness to each moment we have. Not get so caught up in life that we forget what living truly is.

Thursday,
I learned I need to start picking out the good parts of my days or weeks instead of the bad. Creating healthy relationships and stop labeling right or wrong. I feel like I can do this. I can be happy.

As soon as she said, “stop labeling things as good or bad,” I realized I do this a lot and that I need to live in the now. I need to just experience life instead of making excuses for certain situations.

I felt calm & soothed by the narration.
I learned that I can be mindful of my surroundings, the general noise/sounds, and not be taken out of my relaxation in meditation. The narration was calming and reminded me to be aware of the joy of life and look for the happy of everyday things. It’s a matter of the mind over matter which can be useful everyday.

I really like this meditation because I had to stop and really think about those around me. I had to think about the things I had. I thought about people, places, thoughts, emotions. Things that mattered that really didn’t matter. Then, I thought about what I was doing before I meditated which was go through paperwork and I couldn’t find something and I said ‘I give up’. This meditation taught me there is good to this day and to cherish it. Thank you, Aura! Have a nice day Everyone!😀

Exhilarating...
My All-Time favorite meditation (so far 😉)!! It felt like I was writing her words with my heart as she spoke them! Flashes of bright lights were like lightening bolts in my mind as synapse connections were reigniting to remembering what I already knew but had recently let get corroded with the rust of the daily grind. No more!! Our life IS wondrous moments stitched in time together into the most beautifully designed tapestry that we create in our Imagination! The song “Everything is Beautiful... in its own way” was playing, Angels were cheering, confetti flying, banners waving...and I’m s little teary-eyed as I start the best day of my life!!! I Wish & Hope everyone will feel my Love & Energy I am radiating from this moment on!!! Namaste on steroids (if that’s even possible) ❤️☮️🍀

Try not to label, experience.
My underlying belief is brought to the surface and solidified. It is reaffirmed that experiencing as much as I can fully before attaching labels to what I see, hear, feel and think, will allow me a clearer path to acceptance and in turn, fulfillment.

First day
I noticed that I would go in and out of the meditation and my own thoughts in regards to my day and other things that are currently going on. I was letting them be because I wanted to relax and not focus on just that. The meditation was soothing and would pick right back up when I did space out.

Just what I needed
This was perfect for today, just what I needed to hear. I have a job interview tomorrow that has me anxious. I’ve been struggling with the thought of letting my husband down if I don’t get it since he put in a good word for me. I know that is not true but the feeling is there. I need to celebrate the chance that I have, the job that I have and the opportunity to change in front of me. Life is good, no matter what we are facing.

God has a plan
God's will for you is perfect in every way. You can choose to follow it or not, but know that it won't always be super easy, but keeping a good attitude and living in the moment and making the best of it is all you have to do. Celebrate time on earth and enjoy every moment, even the hard.

as the recording played, my head literally played my life like a flashback like you see in movies. I was so moved. I remembered everything since first grade and now, all playing like a movie, and it showed me that I've been through so much, and that I'm still here standing with confidence :)

Downloading...
I recently had to replace my phone due to a hardware issue... what an interesting couple days! Live your daily life without being able to text or call (or play Aura) & you will find out what I mean! So I finally get the new phone, transfer the SIM card & get it up and going... all is back to normal...(whatever that is!) Then this thought comes to me, I have downloaded a lot of information to my phone to have & use (if needed) to make my life better/easier. So... what am I downloading into my brain to make my life better/easier? Thankfully, I have read hundreds of self help/PMA books over the decades (I believe reading ingrains info deeper into our hard drive than listening), along with listening to thousands of tapes, cd’s & such while I drive my 40,000 miles/year. Then along comes Aura with the best of all worlds. I listen while relaxing (Not driving), allowing my brain to make some crazy extra connections @ several levels, then I read & learn from others how it affected them & finally I get to think & write about how it makes me feel, which requires me to process, articulate & apply this “new” info. I guess I am hoping more & more people are downloading some good mental info to improve themselves & our world! What are you downloading...? Namaste, ❤️☮️🍀

Thoughts
I have a choice what I tell myself about the world and how I experience it from moment to moment. Be positive instead of negative, think good not bad, help people, pick them up smile, give compliments. Keep your head high, posture up straight and tall, be aware when your slipping down, feeling blue or down and be kind and loving to me, pick me up and reinforce that things are where there meant to be, look back at how fat you’ve come, look forward into the clear blue sky ahead and March on like the warrior I know deep in my heart I am and have proven to be time and time again!! Little Jagger is watching you!!

I liked it
It was nice, but when it said “every moment is a new instance” it gave me a little anxiety about like, why am I here sitting down with headphones listening to this when I could be doing something helpful for someone else, I should get off my butt and do something useful for once in my life.” That kind of anxiety... but otherwise it was a very nice, very good to know session.

Just what I needed today
I woke up today in a lot of pain physically and mentally, and really needed this reminder of how important it is to focus on the unfolding beauty around me, and choose to celebrate life, even when it does not seem perfect. I am reminded of Pema Chodron’s teachings about how we are always one eyeblink away from enlightenment, and how we transform the world around us with our consciousness. I found myself taking hope as I listened to this about a situation with a family member that seems hopeless- of course my outer thoughts intrude to my practice and I must guide them back, but I kept thinking about how to handle a certain situation that is stressing me out. It was so good to be gently reminded of the possibility of joy and peace in the now, and the beauty all around me as I am suffering. Suddenly the dog’s bright eyes, the blossoms on the pear tree put my window, the very comfort and safety of where I am laying in bed- it all seems suddenly more precious. Thank you for this wonderful service. It’s ironic it’s taken a pandemic to get me back into my daily meditation practice, and doubly ironic that it’s an app on my phone that got me there, as I’m famously anti tech. But thanks, Aura, you’re bringing healing to a world that desperately needs it.

Celebrate Your Life
The best way to recover from feeling down about a lack of perfection in one area or another of your life is to step back and look at life as a whole. It’s fascinating, incredible, breathtaking... As a whole, life is magnificent enough by a long shot to outweigh the small tragedies that it brings.

Celebrate your life
It is so important to be reminded with kindness and compassion of what a wonderful thing is to be alive, to celebrate life. Our world is indeed so very beautiful as long as we remember to look at its beauty and to surround ourselves with alike minds to straighten us to go through and not to avoid the less beautiful things, to find the center of the storm where all is calm.
