Lessons Learned In The Check Out Line

Lessons learned in the Grocery Store’s,14 item check out line.
 
Lesson: It’s the little things that matter, not the big ones!
 
So I am in the 14 items or less grocery check out line and got my goodies on the conveyor belt, put the plastic divider between my order and the one yet to be put down behind me.
 
I then stepped back from the conveyor and forward so the older man behind could  move forward to put his items on the conveyor.
 
I was in daydream mode after all the work of shopping till the man behind be touched my arm and said….
 
“Do you know what you just did (moving so he could get in) is the first time that has happened and what a difference that made for me in my day?”
 
I was so struck that the small and I do mean small thing I did really made a difference to this man and I got to thinking to myself…… “ now you get it ….it’s the small things that matter not the BIG things”. 
 
Ya I know not a new concept but the impact of it was now different.
 
How many little things can be done in a day that really mount up and create positive karma not just for me but those I come into contact with.
 
We are all rushing through our days but that moment in the 14 item check out line registered with my heart and soul and doing grocery check out will not be the same for me. So simple but so profound.
 

Two Day Workshop In Big Sky, MT

By Amanda Eggert, EBS Senior Editor
 
BIG SKY – Elizabeth Thorson, an emergency room nurse, learned early on in her career that she had a talent for predicting who wouldn’t live to her next shift.
 
“I never understood why I was always working on that precipice of life and death in my professional career,” said Thorson, who is offering a workshop in Big Sky titled “Opening to your Intuition” on March 18 and 19. “I just sort of knew as a nurse who wouldn’t be on the ICU the next day, or who wouldn’t be out of surgery the following day.” 
 
Initially, Thorson felt the hospital was not a safe place to elaborate on her well-developed—if unasked for—skill, so she learned to shut down her intuition, just as she had when she was a young girl and sensed there would be hardship or difficulty if she shared certain things she knew without being able to explain them.
 
Then in her mid-30s, she began to open the door a crack—“and that was the beginning of the end for me,” said Thorson, who lives in Camden, Maine, but regularly visits family in Big Sky.
 
Now Thorson offers counseling to people who are seeking guidance on medical issues, as well as people going through a major transition. Although she doesn’t offer diagnoses—that’s practicing medicine without a license and illegal—she can help clients view illness through a different lens and understand possible causes.
 
When Thorson meets with clients who have questions about a medical issue, she works blind, meaning she doesn’t want to know their medical history or symptoms. Thorson said she works harder that way and finds that it forces her to rely more on her intuition.
 
Thorson said learning to operate with an intuitive understanding is more of a right-brain operation, a thinking style she associates with creativity and imagination, than a left-brain one, which is more commonly referred to as the realm of judgment and logic.
 

Elizabeth Thorson, RN, Intuitive Consultant & Medical Intuitive, brings this highly experiential opportunity to the Big Sky community March 18-19 at Santosha Wellness Center, Big Sky MT. Elizabeth works intuitively in many areas and is passionate about assisting others to develop and most importantly to trust their intuition. This program is designed to allow students to see what their unique intuitive "radar" is and provide the opportunity for practice and validation. We will work with both sides of our brains and address the skeptic within each of us. Everyone has intuition. Some are born hardwired, others just need their wires connected. Intuition is a skill, like driving or skiing & is not a gift that only a few have. Like any skill you have to practice. Come prepared to play and experiment.

A Dog's Purpose

A Dog’s Purpose is a new movie about how dogs (and actually any animal) come in and out of our lives, and what lessons they bring us if we stay in tune to them.

I just saw this movie trailer and I believe this movie will truly bring to the big screen what I believe about human life and the animals that come into and go out of our lives. Coming to a theater near you in January (I hope!)

EVERY animal owner and lover needs to watch the trailer

Meditating for health

Anna Husted

“I radiate health and vitality.”

About 30 days ago I started a journey of self-confidence, health, and seeking abundance through meditating my way to healthier eating. 

I live in Big Sky, Montana, a town where being outdoors is more than just a lifestyle, it’s what we do--some of us all day, every day. We also partake in a higher than average amount of drinking. I love a glass of wine as much as the next person, but in the past six months I’ve noticed that with drinking (nearly every day), I also was eating fattier foods, snacking more, and feeling less focused due to that lack of good food in my life. 

With the onset of summer came Farmer’s Markets. I was eating fresh local foods, making salads, but still found myself snacking too much. That’s when I came across Jon Gabriel's 21-day meditation for weight loss. I didn’t feel as though I needed to lose weight, but I needed focused intention to treat my body better. And it worked.
