Belonging and How to Belong – Teal Swan
By Teal Swan
This episode on belonging and how to feel like you belong explores our feeling of being isolated, lonely and alone. Teal Swan discusses how sometimes we feel that we only belong in places where we didn’t wish we belonged. In other words, we either don’t feel we belong or we feel that we only belong where we don’t want to belong. Teal swan then walks us through healing this aspect within ourselves so that we can find true belonging.
2 Minute Daily Gratitude Meditation | HeartMath Meditation Technique
In this video, I share with you a simple 2 minute daily gratitude meditation, called the HeartMath Meditation Technique, that was developed by the Heart Math Institute (HMI).
HMI researches the heart-brain communication, and its relationship to managing stress, increasing coherence, and deepening our connection to self and others. It is founded on the belief that our hearts have their own intelligence.
Your heart was created long before before you even had a brain. Don’t get me wrong, the head is an amazing tool for setting goals, learning, and strategizing, but it falls short at providing us with gratitude and happiness. Because the brain is designed to keep us safe and protected, it will always look for what is wrong and missing, which causes people a lot of stress, fear, and anxiety.
If you want to lead a happy life, you need to experience positive emotions. In the words of Paulo Coelho, “You will never be able to escape from your heart, so it is better to listen to what it has to say.” Are you ready to get out of your head and into your heart?

In this video, I’ll share some of the techniques that helped me break this habit – and many others since. Whatever your bad habits are, you’ll be able to use these strategies to quit them as well.
