As the Summer of Wellness continues, balance within to manage the World outside.
This week started with international crises. When observing pain and disaster, it is natural to feel anger, sadness and even despair. These feelings may come in waves. To process these feelings, stand still and slow down.
From a place of stillness, one can safely breathe love into yourself as you embrace the impact of the World around you.
To embrace the World, you do not lose yourself. You accept what is and identify if you can do anything to help others as you help yourself. As you help, be mindful to balance your wellbeing – rest, hydrate, refuel, create, play and breathe.
Manifest your good intentions to help others by exercising compassion for yourself first. Research consistently demonstrates that exercising compassion for yourself makes you better at exercising compassion for others.
Wishing you a day filled with compassion and good intentions. Breathe Love into Yourself™.
It’s SUNday and I’m excited for each of the Self-Care Sunday 30™ sessions offered at 10 am EST and 7pm EST. Good Morning. Each day, consider beginning with an intention to set your day. The intention is a way to express gratitude and prepare you for the day. With your intention consider the opportunities presented each day. Your day may be planned with an agenda, but then a plot twist may result. Setting an intention empowers your resilience to manage the plot twists, achieve goals and continue to flow through your day. Wishing you a good morning, good afternoon and good evening – wherever and whenever you are. A free, bonus meditation experience also takes place today, August 15, 2021 at 3pm EST on Zoom – we‘ll experience a friendly, hour of multi-sensory techniques to give your brain a break from the tired; create new neural pathways; and guided meditations that jump-start your wellbeing and practice. Send an email or DM, if you would like to join this bonus session. #brainhealth#zen#inspiration#intention#meditation#free#wellbeing#class#breathwork#cleanseyourcache#iamarliespeaks#arlenejmgrant#selfcare#selfcaresunday
Did you know camels greet each other by sharing breath? How beautiful is that to breathe life into another being? How beautiful to appreciate and see the other to say you matter? Everyone desires to be seen and valued. This act of kindness is a model for elevating self and others.
Kindness also boosts the immune system and serotonin. The benefits of kindness extends beyond the receiving party. Kindness benefits the giver and also those who observe the kindness.
This week, the Self-Care Sunday 30™ community circle focused upon the power of breath, love, and kindness in our multisensory meditation experience. The power of love resonated with participants across the United States – West, South, North and East all represented with a collective transformation of love.
The circle opens again soon and I continue to expand the private one-on-one sessions. It is a blessing to help others and witness the power of @cleanseyourcache.
One Member of Self-Care Sunday 30™ and I met beyond our Zoom screens and the power of the connection is real. She shared an interesting observation. As a physician, she received #headspace free to cope during the past year. She told me #cleanseyourcache was more powerful for her relaxation and transformation. 😇
I’m creating opportunities to help more people in need. Stay tuned. Until then, I hope this quote inspires you:
“Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.” —Scott Adams
@cleanseyourcache continues its Summer of Wellness campaign encouraging you to exercise daily gratitude. Place memories, wins, goals, connections and lessons in your gratitude jar to fill your cup with love.
Through love, your power unfolds and propels your forward.
Yesterday, I taught two sessions on taking flight. Did you know turkeys can fly? I didn’t until preparing to teach. I wondered why the Turkey can fly, but spends most of its time on the ground. I wondered why Turkeys can be caught by simply walking up to them slowly when they can fly.
Turkeys are trusting, smart, curious and community driven creatures that sometimes fail to exercise their full potential.
Gratitude is one way of exercising your full potential. Consider journaling your gratitude.
“How do you journal gratitude?” I’m asked this question often.
Each day, gift yourself time- – start with 1 minute – and write down at least one of the five options in the Cleanse Your Cache™ Gratitude Jar. Gratitude transforms your life.
Enjoy your Summer of Wellness. Let me know how it’s going💚
The importance of simplicity in the midst of stress is undervalued.
Showing up may require you to slow down. In the process of slowing there is clarity and healing as your body stops the stress response.
I hope you take time to rest, play, create, hydrate, and refuel as your breathe love into yourself.
Breathe Well, Arlene

“The news is filled with controversy – especially now. The greatest gift to your peace of mind is to practice empathy. Respecting what it takes to stand in your own shoes and respecting efforts of others to stand promotes wellness.” – Arlene JM Grant
