It reminded me that becoming a mom can put us right into BE-ingness in our lives, if we let it. We are so used to “DO-ing” accomplishing, being productive, and achieving useful goals, that it can be depressing to have that measure of our value suddenly go to zero.

But when we allow ourselves just to “BE”, we get more in touch with our inner wisdom. When we allow ourselves to “BE”, a part of us that is always aware of possibility comes to the forefront and embraces our smaller, scared Self with love.

When we allow ourselves to “Be”, eventually we begin to feel a desire arising to make a contribution, however small. From this place, we have more courage to stand for love in the world, in whatever way that makes sense to us.

If you have limiting thoughts that block you from seeing your own gifts clearly (who doesn’t?), let yourself “BE” a little more this week.

  • Sit and notice your breath without trying to achieve anything in particular (if you need some quick guidance with this check out our Ma Meditation program). 
  • Listen to music instead of the radio.
  • Move a few things on your to-do list to next week.

Only when a feeling of peace and sweetness arises, ask yourself:

  • What is the most radical, bad ass move I can make this week to generate     momentum for my life?
  • What action will honor the bigness of my spirit as well as the level of my energy these days?

It’s hard to even ask this question, no less hear the answer, when we are immersed in the “DO-ing” action.

This week, just as an experiment, even when we are “DO-ing” let’s take this feeling of not “DO-ing” with us – and who knows, because we are coming from a place of “BE-ing“, from a more expansive, loving and empowered place, we might just have the courage to “DO” something we’ve never done before.

So don’t just “DO” something Mama, “BE” there!

And of course, our mat is a GREAT place to get in touch with just “BE-ing”…
