How Transcendental Meditation Can Help You

Transcendental Meditation (TM) is a form of meditation that involves the repetition of a mantra (provided by a guru (spiritual teacher)) twice a day for 20 minutes. It was originally founded by the Indian guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and has become quite popular today.

Many celebrities practice TM, including Oprah, Paul McCartney, Katy Perry, Russel Brand, and Emily VanCamp. They all claim that TM helps them to cope with their busy and stressful lives.

Research has indicated that TM can assist in reducing anxiety and stress. It has also been linked with reduced blood pressure and obesity.

I began my practice of TM during law school. I was on adrenal overdrive during that time of my life and wanted something to help me feel balanced and less anxious. I diligently practiced TM twice a day and noticed immediate benefits. I was less anxious, less stressed, more grounded, and noticed that my addictive behaviours (shopping and having too much sugar) reduced as well. I also found a huge difference in mental clarity and focus, which rendered me a more productive student.

In addition, my intuition and sixth sense increased significantly, which continues to benefit me as an energy healer. I often pick up on key emotions or events in peoples lives that underly their imbalance. I do credit TM and consistent energy work for this ability and firmly believe that everyone can develop this for themselves.

From an energy medicine perspective, TM works on all of your chakras. Other forms of meditation typically only target the third eye and crown chakras, which in some cases might cause those chakras to be over-charged, creating an imbalance in your energy fields. The classic prototype of a person who has this issue is what new agers are stereotypically represented as – not grounded, floaty, “up in the clouds” etc.

So if you’re looking for a comprehensive form of meditation that targets all of your chakras and has spiritual, physical, mental and emotional benefits, I highly recommend learning TM. You’ll be amazed at what it can do for you.

Christmas Magic - How to Have Your Wishes Fulfilled

Remember when you were a little kid and so deeply believed in Santa Claus? You wished with all your heart that he would get you a particular something for Christmas. Then on Christmas morning you would rush down to the tree, find your present, unwrap it and gasp in delight when you realized that Santa received your wish and granted it!

I had a little bit of “Santa wish granting” recently and wanted to share this story of Christmas magic with you.


Some time ago, I came across a picture of the most adorable plush snowmen that were being sold at the Christmas Market in the Distillery District (Toronto). I wanted one. Yes, I am not a little girl but when I saw the picture, I just knew I had to have one. They warmed my heart and made me smile.

So I put it out there to the universe to bring one to me. I was somewhat doubtful of being able to get one considering that the Christmas Market has been heavily trodden with hundreds of visitors since it opened over a week ago. I thought that the inventory would be wiped out by this point. Plus, it would be a few days before I would have the time to go there.

I even conducted an online search to see if these particular snowmen plush were available anywhere online (oh yeah – I was serious about this!). I couldn’t find them.

I put my worries about not being able to find one aside and went to sleep thinking about how one of them would add to my Christmas cheer!

The next morning, I wanted to get a little birthday cupcake for my friend. At first, I was thinking of getting it from a grocery store nearby. Once I got in the car, something told me to go to another grocery store farther away. I followed my intuition and went to it. Not only was there a great selection of cupcakes but when I went toward the coffee bar, guess what I found?


Yup! We were meant to be! There was only one of her available (she’s a snowlady by the way, not a snowman and her name is Snowdust if you’re wondering 😉 ).

Seriously though – what are the chances of being able to get the exact plush I wanted in a small grocery store (of all places), the day after I wished really hard for it?

Here is what I want to share with you from this magical experience:

4 Steps to Have Your Wishes Fulfilled

(1) Wish for something you want with all your heart.
You’re never too old to do this.

(2) Before you go to sleep, focus on your desires instead of your worries.
Psychological and metaphysical studies have established that what we think about before we sleep deeply affects our subconscious minds and drives our reality the very next day. So we might as well focus on what we want instead of our fears.

(3) Know that the universe will conspire in ways to get you what you want if it is in your higher good.
Be patient though – sometimes it may not manifest quickly. There’s something called divine timing.

(4) Follow your intuition.
You may have asked the universe for something but the reason you may not be getting it is because you’re not listening to your inner guidance that is directing you to it. Even if you don’t consider yourself to be intuitive ask yourself how many times you have ignored the little voice at the back of your head and have regretted doing so. We all have the gift of intuition. I promise there’s nothing “psychic” or “woo-woo” about this. Be receptive to that little voice!

Happy Wish Making! 🙂
