Happiness: Savoring is the Antidote to Habituation

by Glenda Cedarleaf,

I attended a workshop last Friday on Positive Psychology with Dr. Lynn Johnson. His opening remark was about how amazement is our natural default state of mind. Unfortunately, we can easily fall prey to habituation. The antidote to habituation is to develop the process of savoring, of reconnecting with our sense of wonder and deep appreciation of our lives.

This got me thinking about why I love guided imagery. When we settle into an imagery journey, it is as if we are taking a magnifying glass and looking deeply, into the sights and sounds and kinesthetic sense of the experience. The theta brain wave state enhances this deepening. How satisfying to be fully present, to let go of distractions and truly be in the journey.

I want to offer you this free, half hour imagery meditation with harp for relaxation and rejuvenation. It’s entitled INVITATION, and is available to click and play here:

This improvisational duet was created with my colleague Portia Diwa, the clinical supervisor of the healing harp program with the Institute for Health & Healing. She is also a member of the Celtic harp trio Triskela.

May it guide you home to your deepest sense of self.

Warm regards,

[Editor’s note – You must be a member of LinkedIn to access this offering.]

We all do.
Even if we already have a mother,
we still have to find this part of ourselves inside.”
