Experience “Epiphany on Demand”

Published

WHAT MATTERS Warren: Epiphany, January 6th, 2020 – Experience “Epiphany on Demand”

I found myself with one of my unshakable urges that there’s something monumental to do today, on the first Epiphany of the new decade. After I googled the definition of “Epiphany” for inspiration, what to do became clear. In Christianity, Epiphany is the day symbolizing the moment when the wise men followed the star and were finally lead to Jesus. Epiphany is also used to indicate an ‘aha’ moment of some great insight.

When reading the definition, I had an “epiphany” of my own. When are the times in my life when I feel the wisest, most spiritual and have the most insight? When I’m meditating, of course! Less than six years ago, I was someone who wondered if meditation was sacrilegious. That was before I experienced the intimate connection to God and the world of spirit through meditation. Back then, I would have emphatically said, “I don’t have time to pray as much as I’d like to, much less meditate,” but today I know that there’s no better way to spend my time. It’s through meditation that our busy minds and lives can slow down long enough to allow us to hear the calling of our hearts.

The truth is, EVERYONE already meditates EVERY day. When we “zone out” while driving, or when our mind drifts to nowhere while in the shower, when we forget what we’re reading and our brain seems to pause for a moment or two, when our hearts are pumping during exercise and we lose track of time, or when we get lost in a good song. I’d be willing to bet everyone can also recall an “epiphany” that they’ve experienced in one of those moments – a sudden inspiring idea, an unexplainable thought about something that turns out to be important, or a random urge to reach out to someone that proved intuitive.

Here’s another newsflash – we ALL are already innate meditation experts, especially when we’re engaged in our favorite activities. Why do people love to fish, golf, write, play music, garden, woodwork, paint, play sports, bond with animals or do any other favorite pastime? Because it’s during those activities when our brains shut down and rest. I’ll be the first one to admit that my brain often shuts down and sleeps during meditation (and even during prayer – my kids have blackmail photos of me passed out by their bedside in the middle of the second verse of the Lord’s Prayer). It’s not easy to balance staying awake with shutting down rabid mental chatter during meditation. That’s why the one rule of meditation is that there IS NO RULE in meditation. We all have to find what works best for us, and it’s often a constant trial and error. Some people sit crossed legged with incense burning, some listen to calming music with their eyes wide open on a subway, others stand barefoot on the ground with their eyes closed. Sometimes people lay in bed and visualize their hopes and dreams, others take a few seconds throughout the day to breathe deeply when they feel overwhelmed or wisely pause a moment before saying something hurtful (choosing silence instead of anger). That’s all meditation.

My message for today is to encourage us all to find time every single day to meditate not just “accidentally” but ON PURPOSE, and in doing so watch even more miracles unfold in our lives. Even if our meditation is taking merely one minute before setting our morning alarms to be grateful for those miracles that happen all around us everyday. Or taking the seconds spent twice a day brushing our teeth to acknowledge the blessings in our lives.

Investing even in a few minutes of mindfulness, gratitude and meditation allows us to experience the phenomenon I call “Epiphany on Demand.” So, instead of picking up the remote control for the “on demand” offerings on TV, I invite you to press PAUSE in your brain, (even for just a few minutes before you pick up that alluring remote). Or take just a minute before you unlock your phone to log on YouTube and make time for YOU to press stop your autopilot habits and meditate in your own way. You could even join others in a 21 day meditation challenge and commit to devoting just 15 minutes each day to the practice. By making the choice to meditate for even minutes a day (minutes that you free up by engaging in a brief pause before watching TV or your phone or while watching yourself in your mirror brushing your teeth), you can watch the movie that is your life transform into a script that could win a Golden Globe.

The next time you pick up your remote, your phone or your toothbrush, embrace an opportunity to experience an Epiphany on Demand. Choose to take a few minutes or longer to meditate in whatever way feels right to you. I also invite you to join the new Facebook Group I started today to share about your experience and engage with others about theirs. Remember, epiphanies can be small or large. Perhaps your “aha” moment is to write a note to a friend, perhaps it’s to post a meditation tip, inspirational quote or insight that you have found helpful so that someone else in the group might benefit, or it could be a huge idea that transforms your life. The “Epiphany on Demand” group is a way to connect people who choose to quiet their minds, ever so briefly, to transform into the star of their own movies (not just an extra), and inspire others to do the same. It’s a group where we don’t pretend life is easy, but we remember that it can be easier – especially if we share our epiphanies with others.

As always, thanks for reading my rambles,
BETH

Royal Oak Children’s Theater meeting and auditions Tuesday, January 21, at 6pm

Published

on

WHAT MATTERS Warren – Royal Oak Children’s Theater invites families with children aged 6-12 to their informational meeting and auditions on Tuesday, January 21, at 6pm, at the Royal Oak Community Church next to Rural King in Front Royal. In their “upward” format, they find a role to fit each child who wishes to participate to allow them to grow in theater skills and confidence.

Children should come prepared with a short presentation (15 to 60 seconds) of a memorized piece (nursery rhyme, Bible verse, poem, jokes, monologue, song, original story, etc.) OR a reading (picture book, portion of a book, poem, famous speech, original speech, etc.). Rehearsals will be after school on Tuesdays. They’ll be presenting “The Mystery of the Missing Medallion” on March 21 & 22.

Lead Directors, Beth and Rodney Bascom, are passionate about children and the lessons being a part of theater teaches them. Child actors they work with have this to say about them: “Thank you for giving me ideas of how to play my part better, I had a really, really, really, fun time, I may forget what you taught me, but I will never forget the way you made me feel, Thank you so much for always giving us a laugh.”

Spread the word about this inspiring opportunity for children and contact royaloakchildrenstheater@gmail.com with questions.

Hometown takeover for HGTV

Published

on

All are invited on our mission to TAKEOVER Front Royal with positivity, unity and inspiration to drown our streets and social media with uplifting discussions, photos, stories and videos about our 22630!

Our community TAKEOVER could land a literal takeover by HGTV! Watch this video interview to learn more!


The Home and Garden Network is accepting nominations for its largest ever renovation project and a group of community residents believe that Front Royal is the perfect town for the project.

“When I saw the post on Facebook, I was so excited because my kids and I always watch the show together and wish it could be set in Front Royal. This could be the thing that turns the frown upside down and the tragedy into a success story and a come back story,” said Melanie Salins who was inspired to coordinate a meeting on Friday to discuss collaboration for the project.

The deadline to apply is February 7th, and the TAKEOVER committee is hoping that the entire community will join them in making a case for Front Royal to be selected as HGTV’s winning town.

A public brainstorming meeting will be held at the WHAT MATTERS community meeting space, OPEN HOUSE, at 213 E. Main Street (adjacent to the Daily Grind) on Wednesday 1/22 at 7pm to share creative ideas about what to feature in our application video.  We are seeking beautiful photos of our community, video testimonials, historical pictures, and heartwarming stories to include in our submission and on our facebook page “FRONT ROYAL HOME TOWN TAKEOVER.”

Our social media campaign will be led by local social media strategist, Mitchell Smith, who hopes this #FRONTROYALHOMETOWNTAKEOVER campaign of sharing inspiration throughout our community will continue long beyond our application process.

In addition to Smith and Salins, committee members include Letasha Thompson (FR Town Council), William Huck (C&C’s Frozen Treats), Delores Oates (WC Board of Supervisors), Amber Morris and Beth Waller (WHAT MATTERS). Waller added, “This unifying endeavor is exactly what our community needs and I firmly believe that there’s no other town better to win the honor. Let’s put Front Royal on the map, shine a light on our amazing qualities and prove that when we overcome our hardships and thrive together, ANYTHING is possible.”

You are invited to log onto facebook to share your ideas, photos and videos and to submit entries yourself to nominate Front Royal at http://www.hgtvhometowntakeover.com/ .  Feel free to attend the brainstorming meeting in person or virtually on Wednesday (we’ll also be going Facebook Live for the discussion). Join the TAKEOVER!

Write your best story in 2020!

Published

on

WHAT MATTERS Warren: Happy New Year! I love sharing stories – about people, about causes and even about the houses I’m selling… but now I’m sharing MY story (a short and incomplete tale of my life’s transformation over the past 5 years), and it’s very difficult. I am posting this not because I think you should care about MY story, but because my heart longs for each of you to care about YOUR story. A new decade is here – a new year, a fresh start. I can almost feel it in the air: the pressure we are putting on ourselves with our resolutions and promises we are making as we enter the ‘20’s. In a couple of days or weeks or months, I’m certain we’ll find ourselves discouraged or disappointed and we’ll think we “blew it” again. But, as 2020 begins, I’d like to submit my theory that WE CANNOT BLOW IT, even when we do; That EVERYTHING in life is always working out, EVEN when it isn’t; That the low moments we experience make the high ones that much better, and that the losses make the wins feel even more victorious; That the things we fail to do weren’t meant to be done yet, and that the mistakes we make are lessons that we’ll one day treasure.

On December 31, 2014, as I watched Dick Clarke’s New Year’s Eve, I made a decision to start paying attention to the desires of my heart and to make time to figure out what I WANTED my life story to be about, not what I thought it SHOULD be about. Since then, I have witnessed what seems like magic unfold around me. Of course, like everyone, I face sadness and guilt, frustration and overwhelm, but I remember that every day, I have a choice to make as I write the script that becomes my life. Thankfully, I usually choose to write a happy ending to whatever circumstance I encounter (some days it’s easier than others but it’s always worth the effort).

Each day we all are writing our own story – a tale not written for us, and we have the choice to use our greatest imagination and author chapters as the lead character. We all have hopes and dreams and heartaches and pain and joy and love and amazing moments (as well as those we wish we could erase). Life is not perfect (and it never will be as much as we like to pretend), but we can choose to rewrite our lives into a story we’ll want to share in years to come. And we can choose to love ourselves and each other through the ups and downs if we remember that each one of us is just doing the best we can in each given moment (even in those moments when our best feels like the worst).

So I’m sharing my ups and downs with you now (as I watch my teens frolic on our winter break and contemplate how one day I’ll wish I could relive these special days that I take for granted). My “story” here is in the form of a 3,000 word chapter in the pages attached, and read in the 17 minute audio version linked below. Why am I compelled to post this? Because, just like with all of my posts and videos, I believe that when I get an inspiration to share, it’s because one person out there needs to hear what I have to say… even if that one person is me.

Below are links to my chapter, “Running Away from the American Dream” published in “Ignite your Life for Conscious Leaders.” Each of the international best selling books in the Ignite series is a collection of chapters written by 35 amazing people that include their heart-felt stories and action steps. The action step I included is a powerful tool I use to guide my life.

Below is a link to information about the Ignite book platform, including a link to purchase the book on Amazon (all proceeds go to charity). Stay tuned for more to come in 2020 as I’m partnering with Ignite to launch an “Ignite What Matters” global fundraising platform series. A link to all the songs referenced in my chapter is also on the bottom of this web page.

WHAT MATTERS is your heart: May your story of 2020 reflect that every day, and don’t forget, it’s always working out, EVEN when it isn’t!

Day 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas SPACE Challenge: LOVE

Published

on

Day 12: Love

Today, on the final day of the 12 Days of Christmas Kindness SPACE challenge, we invite you to love, for love is the energy that makes all other acts of kindness worthwhile. We hope you all have a merry everything and a happy always, remembering in 2020 that you can find the spirit of Christmas and the hope of a new year EVERY single day. Every day and each moment offers a chance for us all to embrace kindness and make choices to love ourselves and others – when we remember that we each have the power to choose love, together we can change our world. #Christmaseveryday #we’reinthistogether


Let’s spend 2020 in SPACE: Step into Peace, Acceptance, Compassion and Equality

We have different labels that we unite around that separate us into categories of different political beliefs, different religions, different priorities, different interests, different dreams, but I believe WE ALL HAVE THE SAME DESIRE DEEP DOWN FOR A BETTER LIFE FOR OURSELVES AND A BETTER WORLD FOR ALL. But there has been no “label,” no “movement,” no “brand” to represent this united front of goodness that is more foundational than any of the other NAMES that highlight our differences.

We’re happy to report that there is finally SPACE for this inherent human nature that showcases the positive aspects that unite us, no matter what our other labels may be. SPACE is a nonprofit founded by Liz Gibbs, and I’ll be talking a lot about it as WHAT MATTERS is partnering with SPACE to make more of a global impact. In 2020, I’ll be launching several large collaboration projects with amazing people to co-create initiatives on a larger scale.

Introducing the SPACE Unity and Change Bracelets!

Self-help books: check. Inspirational quotes: check. Coaching programs: check. A lot of us know intellectually what we need to do to evoke positive change in our lives and the world, we just have a hard time actually putting it into practice. Our bracelets act as a constant reminder and accountability partner for those real life moments that happen outside of our journal or therapy session. Yes, keep reading, learning, journaling and talking – AND join us, in what is sure to be a humbling journey, of imperfectly attempting to practice what we preach.

*Our bracelets are handmade out of recycled paper beads by refugee women and caretakers of vulnerable children in Kampala, Uganda.

**10% of profit is donated to a different non-profit each week

Day 11 of the 12 Days of Christmas SPACE Challenge: RECEIVE

Published

on

Day 11: Receive

Yesterday, our challenge was to give from the heart. Today, we allow our heart to truly receive. We’re taught that giving is better than receiving, but graciously receiving is equally as important as it honors the giver as well as ourselves. We all strive to love, but how much do we allow ourselves to be loved? When someone offers us a gift of acknowledgement, gratitude, kindness or care, how deeply do we let it in and let our hearts truly appreciate the gesture? Often, when receiving, we have an instinct to feel guilt or the need to reciprocate someone’s giving.  The next time you receive, remember that it’s a true gift to simply say “thank you,” honor the giver and acknowledge that their act has made a difference in your life. Today, we invite you to receive with the same joy that you give. #ChristmasEveryDay
