MissGuided Mom's Guardian Angel GraceBreathing is the key ingredient to becoming whole mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Learn how.

After you begin breathing on a new level, you can choose to commit to doing crossword puzzles, Saduko, word search games, brain teasers, Rubiks Cube, etc. These are things you can incorporate into your daily life to help stimulate your mind.  Like physical work-out for the body, it will be important to find what you enjoy doing so it’s not a chore.  I personally like Saduko and brain teasers.  What do you like?

 Another thing that helps stimulate your brain is increasing the serotonin level.  This includes listening to classical music, laughing daily, eating balanced diet, getting enough sleep, having a great attitude, surrounding yourself with positive people, exercising regularly, incorporate play in your life, reducing stress, reading, meditation/prayer, enjoying the arts, to name a few.  You may also consider changing your routines such as the route you take to work, where you park your car, etc.  To add more excitement, why not try learning something new or take up a hobby.  All of these examples expand your mind and open you up for new opportunities. 

This is all practice to get you ready to dive into the pool of creativity and adventure that lead to new shores. You need to lean into curiosity, wonder and openness to the life around you.  What does it mean to live here?  How do you do this in the midst of responsibility?  You start by listening and not defending your position.  It’s about the ability to respond instead of reacting to life.  Learn to explore a different point of view and not judge it and try to change the other person. 

Listen again on a deeper level where you begin to see a bigger picture because you now value all the pieces around you.  The image keeps expanding since you learn to connect and believe abd see how everything belongs, even things that in the past you would have dismissed.  Your mind keeps expanding and new ideas begin to grow.  They are like sunflowers that turn to face the light of the sun and so will your mind.  As it gets accustomed to expanding, it will seek out those people and energy that bring light, believe in possibilities and look beyond their horizon that they are able to see.  Imagine where you will end up.  Once you imagine this, then think bigger!!!

Posted by Marisol Barrios as MissGuided Mom's "Eve"

After 12 years of marriage, I found myself suddenly divorced with two sons to raise. Inspired by life's events, I decided to create "Eve" and tell her story, a story that will resonate with many women. "Eve" will take you through the good, the bad, and the ugly of marriage, motherhood, career and divorce. After numerous delicate situations, she decides to surrender her life to a higher being and welcomes her guardian angel who teaches her life lessons. Join "Eve," her guardian angel, and friends as she takes you through an unimaginable journey of self-discovery.
