Here We Are

Julia Delaney

Hi, I’m Julia, a creator of Positive Pranic. In addition to my two master’s degrees, I’m a CPD and IMMA* certified mindfulness and meditation teacher with a solid educational and experiential background.

Life is a fascinating thing, you know, full of ups and downs, twists and turns, so by 53 years of navigating through it, just like all of us, I had my fair share of challenges and revelations. By uncovering and cultivating the power of mindfulness, meditation, nutrition, and self-care, I was able to get through a lot of emotional and physical turmoil, including Lyme disease and cancer. (Here you can read more about > My Story )

I see the purpose of evidence-based mindfulness and meditation as reducing unnecessary suffering by making you more aware of how your mind works and the world around you. By retraining our mind, we also develop qualities like concentration, kindness, compassion, empathy, resilience, patience, gratitude, and increased alertness. These qualities positively impact not just your relationships and work but your overall sense of well-being as well.

Now I’m here, just sharing my ways and the things I’m discovering as I go along, hoping to uplift and inspire others or at least make you smile or feel better, even if it is for a moment. And even though I have quite a bit of knowledge, everything I’m talking about here comes not just from intellectual understanding but from my personal experience as well.

So I’m only offering things I lived through, things that touched me in one way or another, uplifted me, calmed me down, helped me to crawl out of the deep holes, healed my wounds, and affected me personally.

As a teacher, I perceive my role more as a guiding friend on the side rather than a traditional instructor. Sure, I have a master’s degree in pedagogy and methodology of teaching and communication, yet my goal is to help you uncover answers deep inside yourself that you may not even realize are there.

You know, I used to travel around the world seeking answers to burning questions, educating myself, and practicing meditation and classical yoga. But I eventually realized that everything I needed was already within me. I don’t have to go to far-off places like India or Nepal to reach my highest potential, nor do you. The journey to self-discovery is much shorter than you think, and all the answers you seek are within you.

That’s why I believe there’s nothing new I can ever say to you. Deep inside every human being, there is innate knowledge, wisdom, and vision. When a statement I make resonates with you, it’s not because I’m teaching you something new. It’s because you recognize it as your own truth. You don’t need me to tell you what’s true or wise. Sometimes, a gentle reminder is all it takes to bring your own wisdom to the forefront of your awareness.

Of course, we all have to take responsibility for our lives and get our act together. Asking questions and seeking answers is a big part of that, and that’s where we can come together. We keep reaching for the truth because that’s really the highest thing we can offer each other. That’s how we help each other get free.

I say the best way to learn is to allow it to unfold naturally. So let the practice be the teacher. Keep asking questions, keep seeking, and keep uncovering the truth within you. We can do it together. And above all, know that you have everything you need to reach your highest potential.

I feel that we all have the ability to craft the life we want, and it starts with taking care of ourselves by exploring the ways we can receive, give, and live in joy. So, if that’s what you want, we can do it together, moving towards a healthier, happier us!

Positive energy is like a refreshing breeze, invigorating and full of life. It is a force that brings hope and confidence, filling us with a sense of optimism and possibility. Positive energy is characterized by affirmation and inclusion, by acceptance and celebration of what is present rather than dwelling on what is absent or withheld. It is the breath of life, the prana, that animates and sustains us, nourishing our body, spirit, and soul. Like a light in the darkness, let the positive energy guide us, illuminating the path ahead with its radiant glow.

Positively You

Positivity to me means keeping calm under pressure, having more self-control, feeling motivated and optimistic, choosing your responses while maintaining perspective, and feeling powerfully confident. So with all I offer here, I just point the light, highlighting things you might be familiar with, encouraging a mindset, a way of thinking, and acting that I call positivity. 

Positivity does not imply perpetual happiness at all times, even when horrible things happen. It is normal, natural, and acceptable to feel sad, angry, afraid, or a mixture of all three if something awful happens, but no one wants to live in constant dread, wrath, or sorrow. And regardless of what life has given you, you always have the ability to alter some part of it, whether it is your perspective, your reaction to the event, or ultimately the conditions or result.

Surviving a terrible ordeal might be the defining moment that leads us to believe in our own luck, resilience, or strength. Two people can go through the same experiences, but depending on how they perceive and process them, they may end up believing quite different things about themselves and life. One person may regard themselves as fortunate, while another as a victim. You know very well that one person may see the cup as half full while another sees it as half empty. So, these formative choices and thinking processes affect our capacity to strive. They’re rooted inside of us and make up a vital part of who we are at our core. 

I hope we can reset our natural emotional default settings of happiness, confidence, resilience, and motivation by spending time together here. And as you become flooded with these positive feelings, you embrace them and allow them to permeate every part of your life, from your career to your relationships to your self-perception, so that you can pass them on to others, cultivating them further.

Positive life energy is a guiding light that illuminates the path ahead.
It is the breath of life that fills our lungs, the fire that burns within our hearts.
It is the spirit that keeps us moving forward, even in the face of uncertainty and doubt.
It is the force that drives us to greatness, the energy that propels us to new heights.
It is the affirmation that we are capable and worthy, the presence that reminds us of all that we have to offer.
It is the life force that keeps us alive and thriving, the prana that infuses us with vitality and vigor.

Conscious Cooking, Conscious Eating, Conscious Being

The blissful experience we are able to have with the life we call food (if one can only perceive it). It is the most intimate and sensual experience one can ever have. All our senses are acutely involved when it comes to food.

It doesn’t matter how much one person loves another or how blissful and orgasmic the intimacy between two people is; they will never become one in the physical realm. But the life we call food is willingly becoming part of you. It is merging with you most miraculously, transmitting its energy through that glorious body of yours.

If one experiences it fully, how can you resist not experiencing this thrill over and over again?! How can you ever look at food preparation as throwing a bunch of ingredients in a pot? Food preparation is the most beautiful offering I can give to myself and everyone around me. It is nothing short of magic, witchery, foreplay, a form of meditation, and an experience of oneness with creation itself.

I enjoy discovering wholesome foods that provide vital energy to our body and mind. And I’m not talking about the energy that revs you up and then dumps you, begging for another hit. But the type of energy that lifts you up and carries you evenly through the day.

The way in which the food is prepared, as well as the emotional and mental state of the person preparing it, are just as crucial as the ingredients themselves. This is a wonderful way to improve your well-being and boost your energy levels.

For me, cooking was never a chore but rather an opportunity for a beautiful offering, a creative outlet, and an expression of love and appreciation. But the real magic of a meal happens in the way it’s consumed. How you receive the food, how conscious you are, and the level of your appreciation in many ways will determine how digestion happens in this miraculous body of yours. We should be able to enjoy the food we eat without obsessing over calorie counts or the amount of carbs, fats, or whatever the latest diet craze is. Having a healthy relationship with food is crucial, so go ahead and enjoy it without hesitation. The harm of stress during eating is far more damaging to your system than any ingredient ever could be.

So, bring some magic to your kitchen, cook up some tasty goodness, and ignite the energy within!

The Breath of Life

The breath of life
The energy that fuels our drive
It’s the spark that ignites our soul
The force that makes us feel whole

With every inhale and exhale
It flows through us, never stale
Like a river of gold, it flows
Illuminating every corner it knows

It’s the sun that warms our hearts
The wind that carries us to new starts
The fire that fuels our passion bright
The light that guides us through the night

With every beat of our hearts
It propels us to new starts
I embrace this force with open arms
Let it guide me through life’s storms

Life’s energy is always there
A source of strength and love to share
