Colouring with Cats #12 ~ Getting Your OM on with Mandalas on Mondays! Plus FREE GIVE-AWAY


WOO HOO

and Welcome Back to Our Normal Programming Schedule aka N.P.S.!

Dearest furriends

We do hope mew survived the Catmass & New Year festivities without too much stress and we're delighted to be back today sharing more OM-ness to get your Zen Harmonies up and happening fur 2017! 

So let's begin with our little breathing exercise, purrlease take deep fulfilling breaths; counting to five on the inhale and five on the exhale:

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

Breathe in
Breathe out

And let all your stress wash away like melting snow in bright sunshine, imagine it sliding off your purrson and being absorbed into the ground beneath your paws leaving mew feeling grounded and free of any bad vibes or tension.  Remember mew can do the breathing exercise at anytime at all.  Not just on Mondays with us! MOL


Today we are sharing The Art of N'OM ing with mew, and if mew've neffur heard of this before, let us explain further.

It is the art of eating in a zen way, thus thereby increasing your Zen Harmonies while enjoying your favourite treat.

Furstly and most importantly, mew must be mindful at all times, and being in the NOW whilst engaging in the N'OM ing zone.

So get your favourite bag of treats, these are mine - see below - and carefully remove several tasty morsels and place on a plate.  

As mew eat your tasty treats focus on the smell, taste and texture whilst chewing and relishing every moment of it.  Slowly, slowly and enjoy effury second.


N'OM ing is completely different to plain old ordinary NOMMING, which is just wolfing effurything down as fast as possible, which Smoochie will now demonstrate below:


As mew can see Smoochie WOLFED those down like it was his last meal, this is NOT ZEN at all and I did try to tell him this through the window, but it was too late! MOL

So this week if mew can exercise a little N'OM ing instead of NOMMING and we're sure mew'll benefit no end.
