The 52: Are You Lighter and Happier Remembering to Love?


butterflyblueskyHas the “river of love” been washing over you all this week?  If you feel that it has, it just means that you actually have become conscious of it.  Love was always there, residing within you and flowing all around you.  Isn’t it odd, and even sad, that we don’t notice it a lot of the time?

We have this challenge, you see.  Instead of relying on the wisdom we have right there inside of us, the kind of wisdom that knows for sure, that we are eternal, divine and loving at the core of our being, we turn outside ourselves and take for truth the misinformation that comes in from the world.  We actually believe that we are small, unworthy, and filled with many negative attributes we learn from some of those around us and from our past histories.  Then we replay them ad nauseam.  This is not an over statement.  We actually can make ourselves sick and miserable by believing all those messages. We are traumatized by them, even though we have a choice in the matter.

Flat out, DON’T BELIEVE THOSE FALSE NOTIONS!  You are the essence of love.  But don’t take my word for it.  Why should you?  Far greater minds than mine have said the same thing.  Over and over again.  Look at all the great spiritual writings. There it is.  And yet, we choose to be unhappy.  We place our trust in ego messages that we think justify our already paltry view of ourselves.  I have spent a lot of time believing those old songs.

So go back and look at the lesson earlier this week.  Let the love flow over you and around you.  Just for a few seconds, if that is all you can muster. Feel loved and cared for. There!  Doesn’t that feel better?  Even if a few seconds.  And YOU did it!  It does not have to come from another person. You can experience it for yourself.

Now, if you want to go back to doubting and feeling bad again, that is the freedom you have.


Believe in love.  Why wouldn’t you?  Give me one good reason not to.

With love and namaste, Deanne

About deannemincer

Deanne Mincer has been a long time student of religious and spiritual studies. For many years, she was a practitioner of yoga and in the late 1980's she was drawn to share her enthusiasm by becoming a yoga teacher. Her certification, from the Himalayan Institute, was a comprehensive two year program including the study of anatomy, diet, nutrition, Ayurvedic medical practices, the methods of teaching hatha yoga, the science of breath and the study of raja (the royal path of yoga) philosophy. She has taught yoga, meditation, and spiritual classes for more than twenty years. In the mid 1990's she became a follower of Siddha Yoga where she experienced a spiritual awakening called shaktipat and her teachings took on a new and freshly informed understanding. As Deanne continued her studies, she learned level one in Reiki and also sutdied with Henry Grayson, Ph.D. where she refined her work with muscle testing and the complex of energy healing methods Dr. Grayson has developed for use with his patients. Dr. Grayson's work is illuminated in his books, Mindful Loving and Use Your Body to Heal Your Mind. Deanne teaches group and private classes in yoga as well as stress reduction programs and meditation in many forms (sitting, walking, whirling, meditation in action, and "sleeping" meditation called yoga nidra). She has developed methods of using yoga in treating those with life threatening diseases as in the programs she designed for Gilda's Club and Friends in Deed in New York City. She was a consulting producer on an alternative health program for CNBC's Alive and Wellness, and she has demonstrated yoga on network television. Deanne created the audio DC, Inner Light Yoga with Deanne Mincer and she has spoken widely and demonstrated meditation in many venues. Deanne is an enthusiastic and joyful teacher. She is known for the keen interest she takes in her students' physical and spiritual development. She stresses that each student should work at their own pace in a non-competitive and caring environment. You can read some of the comments her students have shared in the Tesimonials Section of this site. Her teaching is grounded in her own steadfast spiritual awareness - that each of us is a being of eternal light and love and that we can all come to knowing this truth for ourselves. She is eager to help guide you on this joyful path of body, mind, breath and spirit.
