Often, we don't recognize our own patterns or limitations until something big triggers our awareness. Change is one of the very great teachers of life. It shows us what we are still holding onto in life that we may not have realized.
When the Universe sends endings or abrupt change, it is a way of redirecting your soul and consciousness to question what is really resonating and true for you. This may not be so easy to recognize in the moment, but in time you will come to see that you are being divinely guided.
Change is inevitable. In fact, it is one of the only things in life that we can count on to surely happen. Often, it does so just when you are getting comfortable or feeling that you have got things "under control". Like an earthquake rumbling about, change comes in and shakes the Earth from under your feet.
NOW ...this is the key moment to stop and pay attention to exactly how you respond. How do you react? Do you immediately run? Do you imagi...
What if I told you your life story before it happened? Would you make the same decisions if you knew that it would result in a painful experience?
That's the funny thing about life. We all think we can control it...that somehow we can set up everything perfectly around us so we don't have to experience pain and suffering. But suffering is inevitable. It's a way of learning about ourselves and the world around us. Suffering so beautifully shows us the light, freeing us from our ourselves to a higher alignment. It's the Universe's way of directing us.
Through PAIN comes GROWTH. And everything that is happening in your life right now is something that is reflecting back to you exactly what you need to learn. So all we really can do is SURRENDER. And this is where the magic lies....in surrendering, in listening, in opening our minds and hearts to learn the lessons. To let down our walls that we have built so carefully to be vulne...
Cleansing is such a great way to reset your mind and body. I like to do it every season to reboot my system and transition into the new season feeling healthy, vibrant and renewed. I do mini cleanses anytime I am feeling a illness coming on or are just feeling run down in general. This is something I also regularly do with clients to teach them how food and stress affects their body.
When you support your system to clear toxins through herbs and eating a clean diet, it clears out the harmful toxins, which in turn promotes all of the other systems in your body to run more efficiently. Whether you have brain fog, fatigue, illness or just generally have not been feeling your best, a cleanse can bring relief and sustainable energy. It also is a great way to reset your eating habits. By cleaning the junk out of your diet, you retrain your body to crave the healthy nutritious food that provides the nutrients your body thrives on.
Fear is a funny thing. It can both motivate us and hold us back. It’s the driving force behind why we do so much in life. Fear of not being accepted, not having financial security, not being good enough, not living up to the incredibly high ideals we hold ourselves to.
I’ve always had the tendency to jump into things that I am afraid of. Do that which I am most afraid of. This has helped me in many ways to change careers, travel to foreign countries by myself, move to new cities and just push myself out of my comfort zone. But there has always been one area, I haven’t been so willing to face. The fear of facing my darkness aka the underlying feelings of pain, anger, hurt and trauma. This is an area that we generally will do anything to avoid. What ends up happening is those unresolved feelings manifest into compulsions, addictions and even depression.
This past weekend, I finally faced that dark place within me and it was quite the jou...
You do not have to blow your healthy food plan when eating away from home.
Watch portion size.
Know the best “eat-out” foods.
Include foods you love when you can.
Before you go out make sure you think ahead.
Choose a restaurant with plenty of menu choices.
Use apps like HealthyOut to ﬁnd healthy restaurant options or just do a quick google search for healthy, local or organic restaurants around you. A good online resource is www.happycow.net
Go online to preview the menu, or call and ask what healthy choices they offer. Look for foods that are “lean,” “light” or “heart healthy.” Generally, gluten-free dishes tend to be on the healthier side as well.
If you have a gathering or celebration to go to, eat a snack before you go out. It helps, believe me. Do not wait until you are starving, you will end up overeating.
Know how to choose smart amounts of food you like and add in vegetables to take the edge o...
We are always creating, whether that be something desirable or undesirable. Have you ever had a day where everything just seemed to go wrong? You get stuck in traffic and show up late for a meeting. Then, that meeting just goes completely south. From there, you go order some lunch and they mix up your order. And on and on....
Where did the chaos start? With you and your thoughts. There was something within you that created that reality. So, let's work with this! This is really good news because it means that at anytime, you can CHOOSE to create something different. But it's a choice and takes effort and intention to choose a more aligned and higher vibration.
How does one do this? Let's start with imagining what it is you really want....
Forget the HOW. Just imagine the thing you would like to have a bigger experience of. See it, feel it, touch it. Engage every sense in it. Now, here is the important part. You must truly believe that...
