Letting Go Of Attachment: The Key To Optimal Health, Well-Being, and Freedom May 18, 2011

So obviously when one decides to move countries, there is a letting go process that begins to happen. There is also a point at which I have become super aware to all the attachments I have to things, people, places, ideas, patterns, habits, etc, that I wasn’t even aware of!

As someone who is on a path, seeking freedom, abundance, optimal health and well-being, connection, love, and oneness, I am waking up to certain things along the way as a result. As I begin to allow my mind to expand, and I play with new ideas and step outside my comfort zone more and more, I get to find out that I am not so dependent on those “attachments” as I once thought I was. Instead, I am finding that it is really freeing to be able to let go of our attachments and find true freedom within instead.

True freedom comes when we can love who we are, feel connected, have a sense of inner peace and joy, know that we are provided for, that we are safe and secure, abundant, sexy, and living on purpose, no matter where we are, who we are with, and no matter what is going on around us.

When we hang on too tightly to old ideas, things, and limited beliefs, these attachments can ultimately hold us back from living our best life as our best self.

Here’s a video I did for you on this exact topic. I hope you dig it! 🙂

Sending you light, love, and blessings!

Namaste,

Clearing the Path for Wellness! November 10, 2010

Hello there! What is new and good? I must say, in my line of work, there are many areas of my client’s lives that must be addressed in order to achieve a certain level of health and wellness. It is true for all of us. Being healthy and living a FIT life takes much more than just clean food and exercise. We must be willing to take a look at anything toxic in our lives that creates “dis-ease” for us. This could mean our careers, our relationships with friends, family, partners and lovers, our spiritual practice or lack thereof, or even just our perception and/or thoughts around these things. Whatever it is in our lives that is out of alignment with who we really are and what we really want, WILL bring us pain and suffering if we continue to do what we always do (or don’t do) about them. These obstacles are always a blessing however, because once we resolve them, we get all the beautiful gifts that await us on the other side.

For example, I have been in and out of a relationship with someone who ultimately never left me feeling very good or healthy about myself. This relationship created a lot of toxicity in my life and in my mind, body, and spirit. As I have stayed committed to living a FIT life, and to moving through each day with optimal wellness, I have been able to reach a level of consciousness that provides me an awareness when things do not align with my bigger picture. I finally did what I had to do to get resolution around this relationship and I feel fantastic! I haven’t felt this FREE and energized in two years! I am here to report, that you will not die if you speak your truth and say what you need to say in your life to take care of YOU.

You see, if we want to live a life of Optimal Health…than we must be willing to clear the path for wellness. The longer we continue to engage in negative relationships, thoughts, patterns, habits, behaviors, and activities, the longer we will keep ourselves from living in the energy and love that we so deserve and so desire. I have learned that it is by TAKING RIGHT ACTION, that declares to the universe that we ARE worthy of better and that we do love ourselves enough to do whatever it takes to create a healthy life for ourselves, and it is when we do this that we get to receive all the gifts that are waiting for us on the other side of such warrior courage and committment. I finally decided to feel through my feelings of rejection and abandonment and shame, so that I could clear the path for Divine Wellness in my life. I knew it was time to do something different unless I wanted to keep getting the same results, and that was NOT an option for me this time.

Ultimately you have to decide what it is you want for yourself and for your life. You ARE worthy of everything your heart desires. You ARE enough, and you CAN create anything you want. I know this to be the law, and the truth. What are you willing to do to clear the path for Wellness in your life? Is there a relationship that needs closure? Do you need to speak to your boss about a way to make things more comfortable for you at work? Are you struggling with an addiction and need to seek help? Do you maybe need to shift your thoughts or your perception about something so you can feel grateful instead of resentful? What is it? You deserve to feel fantastic…so what is worth putting that off any longer?

For me…I am going to greet mother nature for a run in the morning because I feel so energized and free. I am here for any questions, comments, or support you may need 🙂 Please reach out to me here on the blog.

Holistic Thursday- “Silience” July 30, 2009

I am feeling very pulled to talk to you all about SILENCE. I am learning more and more about this myself each day that I am faced with all my daily “To Do’s.” However, over the last year or two, I have made it a conscious effort to add a few minutes or 30minutes, of silent meditation to my list. I am not perfect at doing this every day yet, but I find it makes a big difference to my ability to cope with the noise and business of every day life when I do. To really be in the NOW is not something most of us know how to do, but being in the NOW means being PRESENT, and being present means learning the art of  BEING. This brings me lots of joy and refuels me quickly so that I can keep moving with energy I cannot and do not get from sleeping.

Just like a computer needs to be shut down regularly to allow it not to get overloaded, the same goes with our mental and emotional bodies. To truly here our creative voice, or to feel rested in a way that sleep cannot achieve, we must quiet our inner voices and allow the truth of who we are to emerge.

I am a big believer in honoring myself and being kind to myself. You should try it with yourself too. Treating myself with respect means giving myself everything I need, and something I NEED is just a few moments of SILENCE a day. Why not? We are constantly bombarded with noise every second, with the radio, the television, people on their cell phones, background chatter, traffic, etc. You know what I’m talking about. Pay closer attention if you don’t.

We all deserve a little time to ourselves, something that is just ours, not interupted by or shared with anyone else. So let this be your quiet time. Whether that’s in the car with no radio  or in your bedroom where the traffic, TV, and roommates/family cannot get to you, just try it. You will be surprised how much you decompress in a very short time.

Are you feeling overwhelmed? Do you wonder why it’s hard to cope with everything on your p[late? Do you feel like there is always too much to do??? I feel ya, but there is a way out of that suffering. Please leave any questions or comments you have for me here on the blog! I’d love to help you on your journey if I can!!! Here’s To Your Health!!!!
