The Sorrow

It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon. 
I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow,
if you have been touched by life’s betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain. 
I want to know if you can sit with pain,
mine or your own,
without moving to hide it,
fade it,
or fix it.

Every life has pain.   It is in the pain that we often find the deepest parts of our soul and yet as humans we are afraid of pain–emotional and physical.  We try to convince ourselves that we should be going around the pain.  Avoiding pain.  Not being willing to sit with pain.

It is impossible to be with another person’s pain if we are not able to be with our own. Our pain is often the window to deep wisdom about ourselves.  In that same way, when we are able to be with someone else’s pain–simply BE with it, we can also learn how to observe a reaction and how our impulse is to remove the pain by fixing it or fading it.

I believe that we must move into the shadows of ourselves. We rarely are willing to look at the dark spaces to find out more about who we are.  Dipping into that intimate parts of ourselves that we often hide.  But to show up in life full, we have to be willing to go into the vastness of the mysteries within us. Learning to be fully with ourselves, another and the world is the work of the soul.

When we learn to be with our pain, we call back parts of ourselves we have attempted time and time again to leave behind, we are to once again find that wholeness.  We are able to leave behind the idea of ‘perfection’ that often holds us back from a life of fullness and deep compassion for others.

Be with your pain and be willing to listen to the whisperings of your soul.

We will be exploring this on the mat this week and looking at the inner parts of us that back away from our sorrow, and search for the wisdom that comes from the pain.

Natural Cleaning

Over the last few years I have transitioned out of chemicals and into natural cleaning. Gosh, I wish I had known all this when I was raising kids.😳

Think about this—our grandparents cleaned with natural things like vinegar, baking soda, lemons, washing soap, etc…and then companies came along and mass produced synthetic and chemical filled “cleaners”.

All those products with repeated exposure can cause serious health risks. The constant cycle of illness and hormonal imbalance may be a result of exposure to these chemicals. (I am happy to share my research if you’d like it)

Our skin is our largest organ, and our lungs are the filters for our oxygen that goes into our blood and our brain, and we are touching and breathing that stuff in? 😳🤦🏼‍♀️

I now choose to clean naturally.

🍋amazing all purpose cleaner for counter tops, sinks etc.

🍋 I make a sink/tub scrub

🍋 floor cleaner

🍋 shower door spray

🍋laundry soap

🍋 wood polish

🍋fabric softener

🍋window cleaner

🍋sanitizing wipes

🍋carpet freshener

If you are done exposing you and your famly to chemicals and want to learn more, send me an email. l am happy to share my experiences and recipes.

Happy cleaning!

The Fear

“…it doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive..”

Our age defines how long we have walked this earth but not what we have done with this precious time. Being alive isn’t enough.  Truly living and taking the risks for our dreams and for our longings is our divine responsibility.  Fear is part of being fully alive.

The longing must be larger than the fear. The desires must be more than the risks to look like a fool for your dreams.

Part of facing the fears is that we must also learn to let go and surrender.

Are you willing to surrender the way you have seen yourself and how others may have seen you?  You know, those labels and temporary identifiers that we have inherited over time; mother, friend, employee, father, etc.  Although we value these, their dominance in our lives can sometimes not allow us to live out the other aspects of our lives.  The calling of the soul is not particularly concerned with the day-to-day responsibilities like packing lunches, paying bills and cleaning the house.

All of our deepest desires are our soul’s way of calling us back to simply being who we are.  To move forward with our desires we have to allow ourselves to stumble and to fall. If we are truly awake, we can catch glimpses of profound wisdom that gets lost in the daily experiences and that may lead us back to ourselves.

Think of something you deeply desire. Feel what it will feel like to have this.  Touch that place in your that knows this desire.  Now, look at the fear that takes up space from where you are now and where that destiny is fulfilled. Feel that space filled with fear and identify what it is.

For me, I desire freedom.  I desire connection.  I desire living my purpose.

I fear failing.  I fear letting people down.  I fear loss.  I fear instability.

Are you willing to look like a fool and risk moving through the fears to get your desires? I am and gladly walk alongside anyone willing to do the same. Consider joining me this week in my yoga classes to explore this on the mat.

Investing in Wellness

This is such a common thought when it comes to our health. Years ago I was fine spending money on so many things unrelated to health and would make the excuse “I don’t have money for that” when it came to something for my health or wellness.

When I first invested in quality essential oils I thought the same thing and even got the smallest starter kit I could. I wasn’t sure they would do what people claimed and I was on a tight budget. And I had many medical bills I was working to pay off! I get it. Your hard earned money is important to you.

However, I started to shift the way I thought about it. I began to realize I was paying for my illness rather than investing in wellness.

Check it out. When you are sick you’ll likely have the following costs:

👨‍⚕️ doctor co-pay

💊 prescription drugs

💊 over the counter drugs

💵 missed income

What if instead of investing in your illness, you started investing in your WELLNESS and used essential oils to help you stay healthy? You know, like preventative care and then having natural solutions in hand to work fast with your body, instead of the reacting style of medicine we’ve grown used to.

This month when you get started investing in wellness with essential oils you’ll also get $50 in free oils to keep growing your wellness.

Seriously. And ask yourself why you’re investing in illness? I would love to help you shift your thinking to wellness—mindset, diet, exercise and essential oils.

Wellness Wednesday—Deep Breathing

Wellness Wednesday! (A day late☺️)

Do you ever feel like you can’t catch your breath, or you’re mind is spinning, or even your physical body feels tense and tight?

I know for me sometimes my busy schedule can make me feel like this. We know that there is correlation with stress and cortisol levels, and cortisol levels lead to not so good diseases.

Check this out though! Science says controlled breathing may help alleviate stress. Simply taking mindful and full breaths can lower your stress, which means your cortisol is lower.

Plus you’ll be an overall happier person! Take some deep breaths, fill your lungs and then smile!

The Longing

This week in my yoga classes we are beginning the journey into the poem The Invitation, by Oriah Mountain Dreamer.

I was exposed to this poem twelve years ago and it one I go back to time and time again. Imagine my happiness when I stumbled upon the book that was written from the poem itself.

This week we start out with “it doesn’t interest me what you do for a living, I want to know if you dare to dream of meeting your hearts longing”.

Can you?

Can you speak the unspeakable and state, from your heart, what you want? What you need? What you desire? Can you finish this statement—it doesn’t interest me to have…when what I really want is…

For me,

I doesn’t interest me to have a large group of friends, what I really need is one that understands me.

It doesn’t interest me to have a huge house, what I really want is a home full of love.

It doesn’t interest me to be rich, what I really want is to know I made a difference.

As we explore this on the mat, we will be asked to look at our thoughts, our avoidances, our comparisons and our truth.

Can we each meet our hearts longing? Can we dare to dream?

Can you? Start by finishing this–

I want…

I need…

I desire…

Breathe with those statements for 5-6 breath cycles. Then finish this–

It doesn’t interest me if I ever have…what I really want is…

Now speak the unspeakable and listen.
