When I'm quiet I can guarantee you there are lots of surprises coming..

When I'm quiet I can guarantee you there are lots of surprises coming.In case you didn't know, now you do :)The first thing that's back is my YouTube channel!!!!! New videos are coming as of TODAY and Mindfulness with Mandee is now called The Inner Light Life.Why the change? If you really want to know what I've been up to (well some of the things, I can't tell you ALL of the things because they wouldn't be surprises then would they?) ... watch my new video! Listen when you wake up or drive to work or need 8 minutes of background noise...


Movement = Momentum

Movement = Momentum

Movement = momentum.I recently wrote this in my journal.👆Sometimes it's okay to be still, but sometimes self-care is movement. Self-care can be slowing down, or moving faster, depending on what you need. Remember this.Most of the time we do need to slow down because we don't take a moment to pause, to even take a breath, to be mindful of what's really going on around us so we can really enjoy the simple pleasures of our life and world and be more in tune with ourselves and others.However, as with everything, there needs to be a balance. I learned over the last...


Stuckness as practice

Stuckness as practice

I haven’t been quite feeling like myself lately, a feeling of being stuck and short bursts of energy and a lot of fatigue which is pretty unusual for me. Winter is when I usually feel alive.

A new year, a new intention

A new year, a new intention

Happy 2021! I love the feeling of beginning again. A freshness, a clean slate. A new year. Another chance. Have you set your intention for the year yet? If not, do it! Take a moment to sit in silence right now and allow a word or phrase to arise and go with that. Trust it. Last year my intention was to "create, like an artist" and as I look back on it, that's exactly what I did all year long. I implemented so many of my little soul projects and had so much fun doing it and plan on continuing...


The magic in the shift

The magic in the shift

November was an interesting month. Busy, full of fun. And full of overwhelm, especially at first. I've been doing a lot of juggling, a lot of creating, a lot of teaching. During the first week of teaching Inner Light Sanctuary classes (plus 5 other yoga classes for other studios and gyms), you can bet that I was spending my Thursday afternoon laying on the couch, mentally and physically exhausted.But the magic happened when something shifted in me after that first week.1.)  << REST >> I gave myself a "Mandee Day" to completely rest and it felt like a vacation, maybe even more relaxing...
