In this post I share how you can start to address your digestive health from a new perspective and manage wellness for optimal living. Check it out.

The problem with Type A personalities and what to do about it

Believe the impossible

You absolutely have to go there.  You have to believe that miracles can happen, that the outrageous dream you have is possible, that the impossible really does just mean i’m-possible.

Your mantra should be... 

You have to believe with the innocence of a child who knows that all things are possible because they could not fathom anything otherwise.  

Don't be the cynical adult with your vision-- let your imaginative juices out to play and say, what if?  What if you really can do it, be it, have it, know it?  

You deserve every ounce of creative freedom when it comes to the fulfillment of your desires.  

There's a lot to be said for seeing something in the minds eye then allowing it to manifest.  

Athletes do it, they see they're race or game performed at a record pace in order to invite the possibility of winning in.  We have to get in the same practice for our lives.  

The 2nd (sacral) and 6th (third eye) Chakras are key for this.  Creativity is born in the sacral chakra.  This is where you give birth to an exciting idea and allow it to bloom.   At the third eye, start to see and sense what it would feel like for your impossible idea to come to fruition.  

Let creativity meet imagination and watch the once small thought grow into an exciting and grand project.

 Don't let any thing limit the process.  When you allow the impossible the sky is the limit.

 

Your past does not have to be your future

The amazing thing about life is that we always have the opportunity to see a new day.  

What happened yesterday has no bearing on what will happen in the present.

The only thing we bring with us as we travel forward through time our story about who we are or who we were told we were supposed to be.

We often hang on to other’s definition of who we are stemming from childhood or teenage years.

This characterization, while so out dated is familiar and we may wear it like a badge. We cling to what we know even if it does not serve us.

The challenge is to rewrite our story.

What happened in the past is the past. So, who are you now? What new foundation can you lay so that you move forward with security and safety?

Paint where you have come from in a positive light.

Challenges have only made you stronger and more appreciate of what others take for granted.

Highlight good times and moments you have felt all your needs being met. Feel where you want to go and know that you have support. Breathe in a fresh new perspective and move into your future feeling blessed with strength and resilience.

 

The bridge between body & soul

The heart chakra is associated with life attributes love, forgiveness, resentment, compassion, healing and self love. It sits in the center of the chest.

Bridge1-300x202.jpg

This is such a powerful chakra because it is the bridge between the upper spiritual chakras and lower physical ones.

When blocked, this chakra commonly manifests in chest tightness, asthma, heart palpitations and mid back pain (by the way, please get checked by a physician if you have any of these symptoms).

If we look at the symbolism of this chakra as a bridge between the 1st-3rd chakras and 5th-7th chakras, we see how love is at the center of all we do. Negative emotions can not exist in the presence of LOVE.

Love is the gateway to harmony between the visible and the invisible– the ego and higher self.

To surrender to this is to be free. The body is lighter when the burden of resentment is released and forgiveness takes place. It’s as though a weight has been lifted.

What bridge do you need to mend? It may even be with you.

Many times we need to understand that we were/are not at fault for certain traumatic occurrences that we have taken responsibility for.

Give yourself permission to remove that hat you may have felt obligated to wear.

The heart chakra is always seeking expansion. Through divine Agape (unconditional love) we are able to evolve in consciousness. It’s important to listen to the purity of our heart’s song to get closer to becoming our best selves.

When your body speaks, listen. True healing requires that we sometimes move through the uncomfortable to find resolution. You are worth it!
