Wellness Wednesday!

Wellness Wednesday!

Over the course of the last fourteen years I have gone from being roughly 100 pounds heavier and oblivious of my health to obsessing on every calorie and every step. And I mean every calorie and every step. Both extreme were missing a huge and important aspect of health—joy and contentment.

When I was heavy I was so toxic in my mind, body and sprit that I spent my day just surviving. In that season of my life I was a really young mom, one kiddo with a significant and challenging disability, a marriage that was so empty and I was consumed with giving to my family, not myself. I had no concept of balance.

When I was exercise and food obsessed I was equally toxic. I would log every crumb that based my lips and I walked around my living room late at night countless times to reach my step goal. I overdid my body to the point of big time injuries and I completely lost joy in eating delicious foods and the nature around me while exercising. Again, no joy, no contentment and no balance.

Now, I am free. I measure my happiness not by the size of my pants or the number on the scale. I measure it with the internal state of bliss I feel most days. By the purpose that I have discovered and the light that I share.

That is contentment and wellness of the mind, body and spirit.

Safe Internal Use

Tuesday Tip!

I know I’ve probably posted this before, but it is SO good to get in the habit of checking your labels (on food and oils!)….remember, if there is NO supplement fact, it is not recommended to safely take internally.

Also, the maximum amount of internal drops per day is approximately 20-25 for an adult. I never even come close to that and I am a big internal user.

And for those of us whose loved one are using oils that are not certified pure therapeutic grade, be sure to let them know that the labels on their bottles say “not safe for internal use”. It’s scary to think that some people see on Pinterest essential oil remedies without realizing that it can be so harmful to them if not used appropriately.

Crown Chakra

Ahhh the 7th chakra. Our energy center of vast connection and oneness.

Color: Voilet

Element: Thought/Will

Glands/Organs: Upper part of the brain: Cerebrum

Gems/Minerals: Amethyst, Purple Fluorite, Quartz Crystal, Alexandrite

Energy: connectedness to ALL

The seventh chakra, referred to as the thousand-petal lotus chakra. This is the top chakra of the seven and located at the crown of the head. 7th chakra is our source of enlightenment and spiritual connection to all that is. It is a connection to our higher selves, to every being on the planet, and ultimately the divine energy that creates everything in the universe.

The crown chakra, is where the masculine and feminine forces are said to unite with tremendous clarity and awakening. This chakra is also associated with wisdom, enlightenment and transcendence.

The crown chakra is associated with the following psychological and behavioral characteristics: • Consciousness • Awareness of higher consciousness, wisdom, of what is sacred • Connection with the formless, the limitless • Realization, liberation from limiting patterns • Communion with higher states of consciousness, with • Ecstasy, bliss • Presence

When the 7th Chakra is unbalanced or blocked, most individuals will feel like they have become spiritually unconnected and may feel like they are living a life without purpose or direction.

The energy of this chakra allows us to experience mystical oneness with everyone and everything in nature.

There is no intellectual knowing at the level of seventh chakra, but there is serenity, joy, and deep peace about life.

You have a sense of knowing that there is a deeper meaning of life and that there is an order that underlies all of existence.

Affirmation:

* I live in the present moment

* I am grateful for all the goodness in my life

* I love and accept myself

* I know that all is well in my world

* I am connected with the wisdom of the universe

Giver of Goodness

Curious about the face behind this blog?
 I teach adaptive yoga to adults with disabilities, specifically traumatic brain injuries, in my community.  It is the most rewarding soul loving experience I could have ever dreamed of.
I love nature and refuel by walking twice a day! Rain, snow or shine I get out there! Being in the trees brings such a sense of groundedness to me and it is a must for me.
I am an introvert! Crazy to think that an introvert can spend so much time talking and being in front of people, but it is possible! I love teaching but also treasure alone time.
 I am a mom to 3 adults kids–my daughter is disabled and lives with me and my men are out in the world living their lives.
I am a native to Colorado and recently bought my childhood home! It is amazing! Talk about roots!
I am passionate about service.  One of my greatest pleasures is being a volunteer where I spend time applying essential oils to people in hospice.
I have had THREE hip surgeries in the last year.  That experience has given me humility, grace and such a deep appreciation for the little things in life.
 I have 3 dogs and a cat. I have always been a dog person but this little kitty has grown on me!
Besides sharing Yoga, I am also a wellness coach and level 1 healing touch practitioner.  My own journey is that I used to weigh 100 pounds more than I do today and the foundation of my changes came from a deep practice of mindfulness ! I have truly walked the path to health!
 Above all, I believe in the power of gratitude and goodness. When we can appreciate ourselves, others and our experiences we begin to see that life truly is a gift.  I also believe whole-heartedly that we are all interwoven and that humanity is begging us to live in kindness and to see our fellow man as the light that is within each of us. That is spreading goodness.

Diluting Essential Oils

Seriously dilution for all ages and skin types is the way to go when applying essential oils topically.

Not only does it help with absorption, but it also stretches your oils out for major cost effectiveness!

I keep a bottle of fractionated coconut oil next to my essential oils and when I want to apply one topically, I put a small pool of FCO in my hand first then add the essential oils.

Read more why our skin actually does a better job absorbing the EO.

Choosing a Path

One of very favorite yoga students who is in a program for seniors called PACE shares amazing wisdom each week. He has lived a life that most of can not fathom and yet his light and his spirit remains so bright. He demonstrates to me the true essence of resilience.

A few weeks ago he said that so many people just choose a job, or a relationship, and then stop trying or for some even living. He said the mistake people make is that they choose a path and think that is it and that effort and work becomes an entitlement simply because you chose the path.

He says in his deep raspy voice—choose a path and walk it well.
