Love Your Body!

Last year I enrolled in a course that began with a presentation from Deepak Chopra sharing about how we were all created. When the video was finished he said, “Congratulations for coming this far.” We have come a long way. We have evolved and expanded exponentially from the big bang that was created in our mother’s womb. We have learned what it’s like to be human  in all it’s imperfect perfection.

We have a society obsessed with bodies and what we should and should not look like. It becomes hard to accept our diversity and uniqueness. Our bodies house all the mechanics, function, spirit and magic that allow us to live. I have come to understand humans as living spirits, a sol/soul in a body. Pure Consciousness that is interconnected in our web of life, inside and out.

We have a human family that is infected with disharmony and disease, yet the good news is we have the power and have been built to heal. We are self healing creatures on infinite levels. We all have stories of hurt and healing, however I was reflecting on mine and was infused with a deeper appreciation for the body of my experience.

I was told of a story when I was just learning how to walk. I had a terrible reaction to a medical intervention and was infected with a blood-bone illness. I stopped walking and was hospitalized. The doctors were fearing the worst and they did not know when and if I would recover. My mom tells the story of a world wide prayer vigil that was held for me.  In record time my little body began to heal and transmute the infection.

We are radical shapeshifters. Inside and out.

Growing up we get cuts and bruises. We heal.

We get colds and flus. We heal.

Some experience accidents, surgeries and severe dis-eases. We heal.

We experience heart break. We heal.

Our bodies are incredible.

Deepak shares in his book Perfect Health, “To change the print out of the body, you must learn to rewire the software of the mind.” This has been my experience personally and with friends, family and clients. There are many doctors and practitioners now focused on holistic health and healing utilizing mind-body medicine along with healthy lifestyle habits.

I have had my share of accidents. I had a severe laceration in my lower abdomen when I was 12. I tore my ACL when I was 14. I was raped at 16. I have had a handful of surgeries.  I healed my asthma. I healed a mass in my breast. I cured my own HPV and more. Our bodies are amazing. All of these experiences show me how powerful our bodies are – however, we are not our bodies with our our Spirit. When the Spirit leave the body we are nothing more than quantum energy of unembodied consciousness.

Our relationship to our body is our relationship to life, our divinity, our spirituality, our health and healing. We have been so focused on the material aspect of our body and life that we have forgotten what breathes us and gives us life. To truly feel whole and complete and understand your healing power, you need to tap into the divinity of your body and mind. A conscious state of being knows that you have a choice and making that choice is an act of free will and power.

This choice can change your life.

We have to create a container and environment for health and healing to occur. One of the greats, Albert Einstein said,  “We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”  Same goes for our health, our life, our relationships, our world and our relationship to our bodies.

Let’s connect with our bodies. I recently reflected on how far I have come from the safe womb of my mother. I grew from a baby to a woman, scars and all. I gave birth, nursed my children, walked and traveled all over the world and expressed loved with my body.

Self care, love and appreciation for all that you are is a tremendous healing act, no matter your shape, size or color. If you have a few extra pounds like me, that’s okay, we have the power to shift that with our mind, body and spirit. I have carried a lot of stress and trauma in my body. We all do, it’s how we release, cleanse and restore where are true essence of health, life and vibrant well being will shine through.

So go ahead and Love Your Body!

It’s the only place we have to live to experience this gift of life.

Ayurveda: Morning Self Care

In case you did not hear it’s the summer of Ayurveda.

If you are not familiar, it’s an ancient living tradition that roots back over 5000 years in India. Ayurveda means the Science of Life and there is no wonder I have gravitated back to this tradition because it’s a holistic model of health, healing and living.

Bottom line, I am digging it.

If you are looking for a reset, this may be it.

If you are looking for change up your routine, your health and your life, this may be it.

What I love about Ayurveda is that it focuses on the individual and their personal constitution to cultivate health and healing. Health is wealth and while we live in a day in age of chronic illness, cancer and numerous dis-eases, Ayurveda returns with ancient wisdom and knowledge that we can incorporate in our daily lives, take back our power and return to balance in harmony with ourselves and nature.

So, Good Morning!

Are you just waking up? 

Here are some suggestions for a morning routine or ritual. This is adapted from the book The Book of Ayurveda by Judith H. Morrison.

  1. As you wake up lie in bed for a few minutes  and become aware how your body is feeling, what you are thinking and your attitude. If you wake up with a crappy attitude, you will have a crappy day.  Give gratitude for your body, your breathe and the ability to change your mind, attitude and possibly perceptions. Keep your heart open and focus on all the positive possibilities while giving thanks for all that you do have, even if it’s just giving thanks for breathing.
  2. Rub your palms together an then hold or gently rub your face. Ahhh you have a beautiful face!  Feel the energy and vitality that runs through you.
  3. Greet yourself in the Mirror, ” Good Morning Sunshine!” A reminder that you love and respect yourself.
  4. Go to the Potty. Elimination is important in more ways than one.
  5. Scrape your tongue. Yep. Scrape it with a teaspoon or tongue scraper. It’s a thing. This stimulates your digestive/immune system. If you have excess ama (not the hugging saint), ama which is gunk in your body this will help clear some of it.
  6. Clean your teeth and learn about oil pulling.
  7. Clean your nasal passages. You can do some deep breathing along with becoming one with your net pot and then a few drops of sesame oil to lub up the nasal passages. Another homework assignment fo you to look into.
  8. Yoga and Meditation time! Get it on.
  9. Oil your skin. I think of all of this like a vehicle tune up. Most people take better care of their cars than their body and our body is our vehicle for life, so take care of all the functions with tender loving care.
  10. Take a warm shower or bath.
  11. Dress in fresh clean and comfy clothes. Research colors that help your Dosha, your personal constitution.
  12. Eat a clean, quality breakfast according to your constitution.

You can take a Dosha Quiz to see where you are.

Show Me The Love.

We are riding waves.
Some people are on a good ride and some are getting pulled in the under tow. We all go through ebbs and flow, ups and downs. This is the polarity and duality of life. We are here to master the flow and how we whether the storms. Each day we are blessed to experience this wild ride of life, the calm and the chaos. Mastering the energy of emotions, patterns and experiences. Staying centered in the EYE is the goal.Returning to Love every time.
May we remember that if we have made it this far we are remarkable beings and we are blessed. We have been through hell and experienced heaven all at the same time. We are tested. These tests make us stronger if we allow it. We return to similar experiences to see if we have learned our lesson, if we remember we have a choice to make the same choice or a different one.
Let us choose to love ourselves and love one another, over and over and over again.
When we have a world that likes to focus it’s lens on hate, war, fear, division and separation; show me the love, show me the unity, show me the good and let’s amplify that until we drown out the hate. This is one way we support the transformation of our world.

Manipulation of the Mind

The manipulation of the mind is the manipulation of man.
There is something that’s on my heart that I need to express. We have been manipulated for far too long. The manipulation for power, greed, control, dominance, and division. This is a program that has overrided our psyche/soul. When we are bombarded with the same information over and over it creates patterns and stories in our brain that seeps into our body and becomes our life.
This is why patterns, relationships, health issues and history repeats itself— because we are on autopilot from the same synapses in the brain. We’ve been brainwashed and manipulated. It’s time to rewire to create new outcomes for our lives. We are in a time of transformation. A time to take back the power of our hearts and minds.
Not cluttered with the choas of the current governmental media spin. This is a toxic program meant to keep the masses manipulated and controlled and to elicit reactions and outcomes.
This is not the work of the divine this the the work of the evils of men.
While we believe in justice— know that divine law will provide.
It reminds me of powerful ritual we did in Egypt. We need to release our emotions/energy that does not cause harm to self, others or property.

The divine wants us to be united.

Man wants us separated.

We must unify all within.

We cannot claim our humanity without our divinity. HU + MAN.

It’s time to govern the domain of your mind, body and soul.
We are the change.

We use our power to shift the thoughts, images, beliefs and storyline.

We all come from the same Creative Loving Source. Our brains have been held hostage and it’s being playing out for generations in this thing called life.
Wayne Dyer would say, “change your thoughts, change your life.”

And it’s so true.

I have seen this on a small scale with individuals.

What if we all turned off the TV, edited our social media feed and begin to heal and create a unified free consciousness.

The ancients shared with us the power of mantra, and later affirmations.

Albert Einstein shared with us the power of imagination and love.

Jesus taught us the power of love and forgiveness.

The yogis shared the ancient Yoga Sutras.

My grandfather would say Mind over Matter.

Otherwise we become the Mad Hatter.

So I encourage you to review your thoughts, patterns, habits and default program and see where that is coming from.

Are you being manipulated?

The opposite of manipulation is creation.

What can we create that is outside our default.

What new thoughts, patterns and habits can we create to override the wheel of manipulation and cycle of division. How can we unite our creatively, our spirituality, our heart and mind to create something new?

A few resources to consider is the book the Secret of the Yoga Sutras, by one of my long time teachers.

The second is a great series on Gaia TV (you can get through Amazon prime) called Rewired.  It’s based on the work by Dr. Dispenza. Excellent. Highly recommend.

A Prayer. Love One Another

We have lost our way.
Dear Mother/Father God Forgive Us.
We have turned the garden into hell and that was our choice where we must dwell.
Free will was a gift, to create a world and a life that we wish to live.
Where all were meant to dwell free.
But now hate is all I see.
We have been given a test and failed.
Our brothers and sisters killed and incarcerated, and our souls jailed by a system created by man.
Man has committed a crime—
A serial rapest— none of its kind. It’s raped spirts and soil, air, sea and sky— Dear God— I cannot witness another soul die.
We have destroyed the garden that was meant for us, a heaven on earth, but for so long we have ignored its worth.
We have been at war with a mind of manipulation and greed and devil as sowed it’s seed.
But alas, the Sun is here to light up the day to reconcile where we have gone astray. We are the children, that have lost their way intoxicated by the devil’s play.
We have been manipulated, blinded and cuffed, and slaves to the systems we have created. We lost heart, our mind was greedy all transactions landed in sin city.
Dear Mother/Father God— call us back, out from hell, because you meant for life to be a life lived well— a heart and mind that is free and full of love, unity and humanity.
… thy kingdom come… thy will be done.. on earth as it is in heaven.”
Only a higher love can lift us and awaken us from the transgressions of man.
We were meant to walk in your likeness and image. We were meant to bring, hope, peace, joy and love. To merge the heavens and earth.
We do not have the right to be called
Hu-mans— until we see and embody your light. We are only man ruined by selfish desires.
We are here to love and serve. Be in service to Good, because God is Good, God is Love and that is what we are made of.
Love One Another.
This was the message that somehow got lost in space.
Love One Another.
This is Now a Command
To restore this planet, humanity and land.
It’s time the mind bow down and be filled with heart. Until then we are divided and stripped apart.
We unite Heaven on Earth with each body.
This is the way for us to see a brighter day.
Remember.
Amen.

E-Motional Wellness

There are many components to your health. Our culture has been on the slow road to embracing a holistic health model, but I am happy to see more awareness and inquiry.

Since we have a health care system that is failing us, and chronic disease and cancer continuing to rise, many are looking at alternatives and taking more responsibility for their health. Perhaps it’s also about looking at all the spokes on the wheel and how they are related to each other. There are many specialties, which is great, but we must take an integrated approach to get to the root of the health issues and nurturing our health and healing.

Is it what you are eating?

Is it what you are thinking?

Is it what you are feeling?

Is it what you are believing?

It’s all the above.

You can eat all the kale in the world, but if your heart and mind are not working together in harmony the energy is off. There is still imbalance.

E-motions.

Energy in motion, that is what we are. Everything begins in the invisible field. The thought, the feeling, the belief; these are the waves of energy that move through us and our body responds to.

Emotions are a response to a stimulus.

We gain clues from this stimulus and that’s we we dig in for discovery. Many have either suppressed energy/emotion or don’t handle it well because they have not had the tools to process in a constructive manner.

It’s time to unpack, unwind and let the energy flow.

When we are in a harmonious fluid state, health is restored and healing happens.

Check out this great film on Gaia TV called E-Motion.

Imagine a world where the trapped emotions, fears, anxieties and unprocessed life experiences we hold in our bodies are the source of everything that ails us. That’s the world we live in. Now imagine a world where everyone is manifesting from their heart the perfect creation that’s inside each of us.

Imagine a world where abundance, inner peace, longevity and loving relationships abound. Imagine emotion experts from around the world sharing their wisdom and negative emotion clearing techniques to light a new pathway for humanity. Imagine we are sacred, spiritual beings here for a much larger reason, serving a much higher purpose, a divine purpose.

Featuring: Neale Donald Walsch, Joe Dispenza, Sonia Choquette, Nassim Haramein, Don Tolman, Dr. Bradley Nelson

Here is to your health.

Triggers. Demons. 12 Steps.

Trigger trigger whose got the trigger?

I am witnessing so much being churned up to be healed during this time. The collective soup is being stirred.

A gentle reminder to take a pause and look at the energy and symbolism, review parallels within the aspects of self.

Our triggers are our gateways for healing if we want to get beneath the surface of the issue, open the flesh of the wound and dive in.

Where did it take root and spread like a virus and infect your life, your relationships, your health, your peace and well being?

It’s like Alice in wonderland.

Have some tea and reflect with the mad Hatter within. What have you covered up?
What time is it?

What reveals is the invitation to heal.

The love, compassion, mercy and forgiveness you offer others you must also gift yourself.

What is within is without.

Mirror Mirror on the wall who has the trigger after all?

I want to take you on a deep dive, so we can individually and collectively heal and find the hidden gems of transformation.
