My top 20 of my Healing Process…

My top 20 of my Healing Process…

So here I am, Day 1 of my new job. I’ve been blessed to have been given another chance and I am ready. I’ve never felt more ready.

I am excited, nervous and scared….but this time, totally ready.

AS I sat in my second last weekend of my coaching course I’ve realized I’ve learned a lot over this past year and a half and today I wanted to share.

So here I go….and in no particular order…as there were so many important ones….

1. You can only “do it all” for so long before you tank….
2. Your internal energy can create so much anger and darkness without one’s knowledge and it can project in ways you never thought possible.
3. Awareness is the 1st step to recognizing that you are doing too much…but it takes courage to stop and say enough is enough.
4. Listen to what others around you are saying. They might be trying to catch you before you fall.
5. Stay away from Facebook and your phone. They are a HUGE distraction and often take you away from being present.
6. Connection is HUGE. Be with people you love. Laugh often, do things that make you feel young again.
7. Realize that your children mirror your actions. If you children are crying daily, maybe you are too, on the inside.
8. Exercise and music aren’t optional; they are imperative to living a well-balanced life. SO FIND THE TIME.
9. You are brave, brilliant and smart. But if you don’t believe it yourself (inside and out), it really doesn’t matter.
10. Meditation is scary as HELL and the people who are most resistant, usually need it the most.
11. People who are willing to be brave, vulnerable and courageous are usually the ones who listen to their gut, follow the universe and set boundaries that work for themselves.
12. Family is #1. If you get hit by a car or die today, the people who will care the most are your family and friends. Life moves on without you, your Family NEVER DOES.
13. Be open and willing to listen and learn from others. There is no need to be a “know it all” if others have taken the journey before you.
14. Stop worrying so much. Worrying withers our bodies away and it changes NOTHING but your attitude.
15. Work is work. Work hard, play hard but don’t make it your #1 priority or you will end up living a very sad life.
16. Be open to others perspectives. Everyone thinks differently (including your spouse) and sometimes their opinions are much better than the options we’ve considered.
17. Find a space in your home that is yours. Make it your quiet space and spent 2-5 mins in there daily..
18. Yoga is a one hour vacation that most don’t even know about. Its peaceful, quiet, relaxing and powerful. You learn more about yourself in one hour, than you do in most days. Its worth being curious…..
19. Say “no” more often. It might make you feel super guilt ridden at first, but trust me, its worth it.
20. Stop feeling like you are on a pedestal. You are the same as everyone else and you will NOT beat the odds by killing yourself in your attempt to do it all

Love LOVE LOVE….Love yourself 1st….and spent your days showing love and happiness to others. Its worth your time and effort as the payoff is beyond ever imagined.

And last but not least….and its a big one….FORGIVE often. Don’t be angry with the world or others…the only person it really affect is YOU. LET IT GO…..

I wish you a wonderful day and see you next time….


My Spring Awakening ….what is yours?

This year has taught me more about life than I ever imagined. Life is so precious. WE forget how precious it truly is and start to take it for granted without even knowing. WE believe we are invincible and can “push through anything” but our belief in this mentality can quickly change us into people we’d never imagined we’d be.

I have an amazing friend! She is also a Reiki healer and Holistic nutritionist. She too, has been on a journey of a lifetime and has come out on the other side happier and healthier than ever. Now, she shares her story and uses her “powers” to help other heal as well. Like me, her journey is similar, we took ourselves to the limit of what our bodies could take, and instead of catching ourselves before we fell, our bodies just gave up. Why is it that we wait too long to take charge of our own self? Are we missing things or are we just plain old “pushing through”? And if so, if this was our child or best friend, would we sit back at watch??? I BET NOT.

Well, I’m on a journey to find why our generation, more than even, ends up this way. And my gift to you…is that If I can find the perfect balance between self care and life, I will spend the rest of my life sharing the “how”. I see so many people following in the same path that I did and all I want to do is reach out and catch them before it’s too late.

I wanted to share a HUGE breakthrough that I had in the last 6 or so months. My friend Michelle, who is my reiki goddess (mentioned above), used her amazing healing powers on me one day and the message I received was powerful. She told me, that while doing my treatment; I look directly at her and yell with anger. She said I looked similar to a monster. Now, if you don’t know reiki, I was resting on a message table pretty much in a meditative state the entire time so this monster was truly living inside me. I remember thinking “wow”…I am so curious about what this means? I’m not shocked about what she said that day, as I’ve always known that I lived with some kind of hatred or anger in my body (because of my constant negative internal thoughts), but I had no idea it was that powerful.

I walked away that day, in “ah”. For the first time ever, I let my journey take over and knew that someday, it would all mean much more. It was about 3-4 months later, when this same amazing women also posted about a 21 day detox. I’d always been curious about one of these, but was scared as hell to do it. My reasons were very different from others as to my “why” for wanting to jump on board (more spiritual than ever), however my resistance was super high. I believed there was a true reason I hated losing control and I was on a mission to find out why. I loved control of every situation and now something is going to take that away from me? How would I feel? I will never make it! I won’t be able to do it, why am I even starting this???

But, because I’m open to new things, I took it by the reigns and joined the group. I was ANGRY from the start. My negativity within took over my entire body and everything about life slowly went dark. I hated it, I hated the feelings, I hated the lack of control and I hated what I was doing……But I knew It would be the moment when I’d also see why I “Hated” it so much.

And there is was,….DAY 3. I was so angry and about to quit so I reached out to Michelle to give up. Her 1st suggestion? Go meditate. And she was very specific – do an anger meditation….so I listened and went in my quiet room to have quiet time. And within minutes, it came out….my anger…front and centre and as clear as DAY. I stopped almost immediately and starting writing…7 pages later I walked out of that room and cried like a baby to my husband. I sobbed, almost as if I was that girl all over again. And in that moment, I felt a weight disappear from my body. For the first time in my life, I was clear.

The next day was a whole new day. I woke up feeling bright, feeling calm and most importantly, feeling the way I’ve always felt on the outside – PINK. Everything looked different, everything felt different and finally, for the first time in my life, I felt like I was always supposed to be – ME.

And now, here I am. Smiling on the inside and the outside. Feeling the most joy and happiness I’ve ever felt in my life.

A special Thank you to my friend Michelle, for making me brave enough to do something completely out of my comfort zone and for helping me explore my journey.

SO why am I sharing this powerful awakening with you? Because we are all fearful in some way of what’s inside of us. And wow, that stuff that hides inside us can really fester in different ways. So…today I want you to think about this….

How are you feeling on the inside? Does is align with who you want to be? Do you even know what that means?

If you don’t, and you want to learn more, please reach out to me. I am almost finished my life coaching certification and would be more than willing to help you shed some light or direct you in a way that can help you explore where your journey might take you next….and right now, I am free…so you’ve got nothing to lose.

See you next time.

Breath….why do we forget about its valuable contribution in all of us?

Breath….why do we forget about its valuable contribution in all of us?

Would you be surprised to know that we take approximately 23,000 breaths per day? 23,000…WOW!

Ponder this thought……We arrive in this world with breath – that moment, when you hear that first cry….and our last breath in usually taken in sadness, when we close our eyes for the last time….at death. With all that said, Why is it that, all the breath in between, is missed, forgotten and left to be so automatic? So assumed!

What kind of world do we live in, that we forget to take a moment, and enjoy this amazing thing we call BREATH. We take it for granted. We ignore it, and most importantly, we forget how valuable it truly is.

Today, take a moment and listen. Breath deep. FEEL it. Our lungs have the ability to be FILLED from top to bottom with beautiful deep breath, but why is it that we only use 20% of their capacity?

Today, take a deep breath. Be thankful for it. And notice how you feel after.

I am back. I’m sorry I left….not sure why, but it was apart of my journey. I’m here now and ready to keep sharing.

Have a good day and see you next time.
