Meditating to the Rhythms of the Palms and Opening Our Hearts to those in Need

Every day I sit to meditate, except on those days when I have too much pain or fatigue to do anything but lie down. The practice has brought me great peace, calm and even moments of joy. I highly recommend it. I love to meditate to silence, but this is not always possible, so I find nature sounds or subtle music that doesn’t distract to accompany my sessions.

Recently I discovered an album on Amazon Music called Hawaiian Spa and I really enjoy the sounds.

I haven’t been able to locate a YouTube of any of it online, so I’ll share this Amazon Prime link where you can hear it, or order it for yourself.

And if you can’t access Prime, you can also listen to this instead, with lovely music and calming Hawaiian scenes to enjoy as you relax.

Ahhh.

 

Now, if your stress has melted away and you feel pretty good, here’s a way you can help someone else feel good, too! My dear cousin Paula’s son Brian and daughter-in-law Amber lived in Gatlinburg, Tennessee until a couple of days ago when the massive wildfires there totally destroyed their house. They need so much help, escaping with little more than the clothes on their back and their three kitties. If you can help even a little, here is the link to their GoFundMe page.

I and my family thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the generosity of all who pitch in to help Brian and Amber.

  1. How lovely to meet you and your blog. And what a quinky dink. Only 5 minutes ago I looked at the Hawaiian Spa Album on Pandora. I’ll go back and play it now that I have a recommendation. I’m so sorry for Brian and Amber, it’s a terrible shock to start over and and I’m sure any funding will be helpful, won’t it?

    • Synchronicity, too! Yes, they have a lot to deal with, but they are so grateful for everyone’s help, including a donation from Dolly Parton. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
