#MindfulMonday – Using Your Awareness Consciously


Hello Adventurous Ones!

I missed you last week. How are you?

Before we get to our #MindfulMonday, I want to share some exciting news with you…

This weekend, The Kid’s User Guide to a Human Life was on Amazon‘s Best Seller Top 20 Children’s Book list! We also made it into the Top 50 in Health Books and the Top 100 in Philosophy/Consciousness and Thought!!! We’re a Best Seller and Hot New Release in three categories!!

Also, I mustered up the courage to be interviewed on KPCW here in Park City, Utah. Despite my fears, I had a great time talking to Lynn and Tim on The Mountain Life (and I kinda can’t wait to do it again). Have a listen here.

Lastly, The Park Record wrote a sweet little piece about The Kid’s User Guide. Have a look here.

We truly hope to change the world for the better one kid (and inner kid at a time), so thank you, thank you for all of your support and for sharing The Kid’s User Guide with your family and friends.

Now, Here’s #MindfulMonday

ch4img2Learning to use your Open Mind and see your Chattering Mind clearly are skills—and like learning any skill it takes lots of practice.

Awareness is the foundation to knowing deeply your Open Mind and your Chattering Mind.

Very simply, Awareness is your inner ability to open your focus and clearly see the Present Moment.

This means taking in fully, without the unconscious, obstructed view of your Chattering Mind, your own thoughts, body and environment.

You can imagine your Awareness is like a flashlight – wherever you shine that light you are able to see more clearly, bringing the present moment into clear focus.


Nothing magical or mystical here – your awake, open Awareness is fundamental to being human.

Experiment today waking up your own Awareness.

When you remember, use your breath or body to come out of your Chattering Mind and more fully into the Present Moment. And then pay attention to how this might change your experience of your self and/or your situation.


  1. Congratulations Becca!! 🙂
