E. Alana James

Dr E Alana James is reinventing herself again! Coming full circle to the first love of her life - art - and bringing back to her images all the lessons of her life as author, researcher, academic and wife. Concerned mostly with the idea of images as vehicles for expression of the truth of our inner and outer life experience.

Hi to my Self and Future Readers!

Today is day eight of the Shedding Your Weight set of meditations from Deepak and Oprah.  Today’s mantra: Siddho Hum (my True Self is perfect) with a centering thought “I find joy in healing and recovery.”  Joy – happy for no reason.

Deepak’s message pointed out that healing and recovery are merely having more good inputs than we have negative inputs – day after day more joy than other emotions –  more fulfillment than not fulfillment.  Then, day after day we get a little better, heal or recover a little more until we are out of the slump/ill health etc that we were in.

And to kick it off and then continue it we measure or notice or keep track of what leaves us fulfilled.

What Leaves Me Fulfilled?

  1. Appreciating beauty
  2. Meditation
  3. Time with friends
  4. Contributing to my world
  5. Connecting with students
  6. Travel

I’m ready to see the list grow throughout the year.
