The only 2 quotes you’ll need to relax (and succeed)!


[ ‪#‎GentleNudge‬ ] 28Jan2015 ~ The only quote you’ll need to relax (and succeed)!

yay

Here’s Your Weekly Wednesday #GentleNudge To Get You Over The Hump…
and into the weekend!

I recently took my final test as a student at the Institute For Integrative Nutrition, the Largest Nutrition School in the World.  This means, that I am a Certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach!

Will Health Coaches be the future of healthcare? Doctors are trained to treat illnesses, but they do not help their patients change the behaviors that lead to them. Health Coach and IIN graduate Maria Marlowe explains why Health Coaches fill a unique role in the medical field that is becoming evermore crucial.

Before taking my final test to graduate, I had to really ground myself and get focused.  In order to do so, I took a moment to remember two important quotes (or, mantras):

“I am at the right place, at the right time”
“There is no need to worry or rush, the Universe always has perfect timing”

Allowing myself to settle into these undeniable truths, I relaxed… and aced the test 100%!

 The Takeaway

In life you have choices… you can choose to be stressed, or choose to be blessed.  Find a way to stay relaxed and trust the process.  Know that you are exactly where you ought to be right now, and that the only time that matters, truly, is right now.

What are your thoughts? How do you relax when you are entering a major life changing event? Do you have a mantra! Feel free to comment below!

To your Success,

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 17 (Yoga Or Nap?)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 17

(Yoga Or Nap?)

yogachallenge

[ What To Do ]

I love using tarot, astrology, Doreen Virtue’s cards (Goddess Oracle Cards, Ascendent Master Deck), and even flipping coins to help make decisions.  The latter has even helped me win $2200 in cash and prizes on a game show once…

Before the flip. Before the win.
Before the flip. Before the win. #LMAD

I love my helpers.  I also know that if you’re like me and use similar tools to make decisions, you resonate with their answers because you already know what to do.

[ The Experience ]

I couldn’t fall asleep last night.  My mind raced with ideas for my business.  They were great, appreciated thoughts, just not what I had planned when I got in bed.  I think it must have taken me about 2 hours to fall asleep.

With about 5 or 6 hours of sleep, I got ready and got to 10 AM Kickboxing. Then I had a day at a craft faire (well, 2.5 hours), and had to get back home before heading to a dinner with some friends.

I was going to catch a 4PM Hatha Yoga class today before going to the dinner. I decided to take a “30 minute” nap, and l ended up sleeping 2 hours and 15 minutes, instead.

[ The Takeaway ]

I didn’t make yoga class today.  I chose to be generous to my Self, to rest and flow with what my body and mind needed.  I was all the more merrier for it.

My day was filled with creativity and yummy physical activity. My evening was filled with laughter, our friend’s two young boys’ antics and delicious vegetarian food.

Yet, when we returned home, I still had time to do some yoga, so I did a 10-minute practice that included meditation, simple, effective postures and some chanting for my chakras.  Afterward, I immersed in a cleansing bath and the day felt complete.

So, did I Yoga or Nap? I did both… I did yoga and I surely did nap.  I did both in ways that suited my body, heart, soul and mind, and on my own terms.  I am proud of myself for allowing myself to flow with life, rather than forcing it into what I thought it should be or what I should do.

As I end my active day, I feel rested and complete. Complete in my Being and complete in accomplishing another day of my commitment to my 30 Day Yoga Challenge.

[ Question For You ]

What do you do to get to feel complete and whole?

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 16 (Do Nothing)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 16

(Do Nothing)

yogachallenge

[ R.A.I.N. ]

This whole week I’ve looked forward to doing a Yin class.  I love the teacher and I enjoy being able to turn off in my yoga practice. As I walked to the 730PM class tonight, the air, fresh from earlier rainfall, I became more and more excited for what was to come.  Though excited I was, I was mindful to bring myself back to the present, feeling excited to be outside in the night air, so crisp, so clean. So now.

Rain, or rather water, is a powerfully cleansing element.  It has the ability to remove toxicity while simultaneously being a healing agent.

Tonight our teacher shared with us a great technique as we embraced our Joyful Discomfort, which she has explained is the edge of a pose where it is deep enough to feel joyful, yet not where we are forced or pulled into hurting.

The technique for healing was called R.A.I.N.:

Recognize
Accept (or, Allow)
Investigate and do
Nothing.

Rain_practice
Four steps to stop being so hard on ourselves. 

In a nutshell, it is a mantra to help you in times of overwhelm, and in yoga, in those places of Joyful Discomfort. If you’d like to explore more, here’s the article on the R.A.I.N mantra.

[ The Experience ]

Yin is a form of yoga that allows you to target areas differently than other forms of yoga. The main difference is that Yin targets, and opens up, the fascia, which is said to store our emotions.

Joyful Discomfort in Yin allows you to open up emotionally, in places such as in the hips (aka your sexual emotions) and the lower back where your kidneys rest.  By the way, the kidneys are said to be where your anger is stored.  And because breathing is so vital to everything you do, I should also mention that the lungs are said to store grief… as we breathed today, sometimes together, mostly individually, our teacher encouraged us to

Breathe in joy, Breathe out grief/shame
Breathe in the present, Breathe out what’s holding you in the past
Breathe in generosity to your SELF, Breathe out the harshness of SELF

This last breath was important, because as we began the class, the teacher opened the space with this story as we reclined in a meditative posture:

A bus driver was driving a bus and a young girl comes up
and offers him a handful of peanuts.
The driver says,
“what a sweet little girl.  Thank you so much for your generosity.”
The girl goes back and a few minutes later,
she comes up with another handful of peanuts.
The driver says, “wow, you are so generous.
Thank you so much for sharing your peanuts with me.”
The young girl returns to her seat.
A few minutes go by and the young girl comes back up
and hands the bus driver another handful of peanuts.
The driver receives them and says,
“Oh, you know, you don’t have to keep doing this.
Thank you for your peanuts, but really,
you should enjoy them yourself. Don’t give them all away.”
And the young girl says,
“It’s OK, my friends and I just like to suck the chocolate off of them.”
(I believe this joke was adapted. Read the “original” here.)

[ The Takeaway ]

With that anecdote, I chuckled in my reclined, relaxed opening posture.

Yin-ing onward, we were encouraged to find ways to add lightness to our night’s experience, and through it, find ways to be more generous to ourselves in our daily life.  She then reminded us that every 6 seconds the mind wanders, and that it’s nothing to worry about or think of as bad… just as something that is, and to gently return to our tool of equal breathing to help get centered in the present.

Then she beautifully layered on our new tool of RAIN sometime during our class. I’d guess that it was maybe around the half-way mark.  Whatever time it was, I received the message of the mantra in the way I was supposed to for that moment, and to be able to share the information with you, herein.

As the 75-minute class came to an end, I found myself crisp and clear, cleansed by the ‘N’ of the mantra, Do Nothing. The N came in handy as my Joyful Discomfort finally started to open me up more than it has in previous Yin Classes, methinks, simply because I no longer felt obligated to identify with any thoughts that were not serving me.

Instead, I was generous to my self, allowing surrender to gravity and The Now. 

[ Question For You ]

How can you be more generous to your self?

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 13 (Embrace The Uncomfortable)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 13

(Embrace The Uncomfortable)

yogachallenge

[ Eyes Closed, Listening ]

I did myself a favor today and took a nap after I finished my workday.

Mind you, I’m no nap amateur… I am a regular, Nap Master! However, today’s nap got me to really listen to my heart and my body.  What I heard was, “do Yin“.

[ The Experience ]

Normally on Wednesdays I DJ a 3-hour set at a Bouldering Gym, and today I was off. I’ll be DJ’ing this week on Saturday, instead, for a big competition they are holding. So, I took advantage of the timing to visit the teacher I take Yoga Basics with, who also teaches Yin.

It was nice to get to see her style in this format.  Honestly, I enjoy her teaching style, I just feel I enjoy a different teacher for my Yin class. And that’s perfectly fine, ya know?

After all, yoga is all about YOU, first and foremost.

Still, I’m glad I went because she had me doing simple poses that were a lil’ more uncomfortable today.  I think it’s because my hamstrings were tighter because of Kickboxing yesterday.   Nonetheless, I kept my eyes closed the majority of the time (getting better at trusting) and I felt my way into deepened movement, so as to really open the connective tissues in my body.

[ The Takeaway ]

We tend to only do what feels right. I mean, who wouldn’t, ya know? It makes sense to do what feels good.  However “good” isn’t always the best thing for our growth.

Today the teacher encouraged us to “listen to [our] heart and body”, and embrace the uncomfortable as part of the process of healing.  Though some of the holds and twists were uncomfortable, I embraced them with presence and the fullness of Me. I breathed.

We also focused on our adrenals today, and our teacher reminded us that the best and most efficient way to get the adrenals back in balance is simply through our deep, relaxed breath.

It appears, all roads lead to the breath…

[ Question For You ]

When was the last time you
embraced the uncomfortable?
How did you grow from the experience?

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 10 (Release the Toxins)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 10

(Release the Toxins)

yogachallenge

[ Yoga Opens You Up ]

Yoga is great for many things, like the improvement of flexibility, stress management and weight control.

It is also great for releasing the toxins we have stored up.

I eat relatively clean (vegetarian since my teens), don’t drink (going on 2 years in 7 days) or smoke cigarettes (since earlier this year), and live in a city with the most yummy air you can breathe.  I also choose to only connect with people who add value to my life and fill me up with joy.

However, toxins aren’t just found in your environment, the foods you eat and the people you relate with.  Toxins are connected to our emotions and subsequently, they are released via the chakras, or energy centers, that open up through the process of Yoga.

THE_Chakra_Chart

[ The Experience ]

Day 10!

…and I’ve released, or rather, opened up, SO much this first 1/3 of my 30 Day Yoga Challenge, that I came down with a bit of a sore throat and cough in the last 48 hours.  This morning, I canceled my kickboxing, and thought I could at least make it to the Yoga Studio for an evening Hatha class.

Alas, although I really wanted to head to a class today, I believe in Self Care:

…And because I believe in filling my well, I stayed away from the Studio.  I worked in bed all day (aka “laid low”) and at night, I went out to get some (spicy) Veggie Udon Soup (with extra ginger) and Yam Tempura and Avocado Rolls with my partner.

As soon as we came back from sushi restaurant, I did a 45-minute at-home Yoga session.

[ The Takeaway ]

Daily I meditate and chant, so I made sure I added it into my Yoga practice.  I had my cellphone by me to create 2 or 5 minute intervals for the postures or breath work I integrated into my healing home practice.  Because of my slight congestion, I focused mostly on breath work…

I started with the Chinmaya Mudra I learned Day 8.  I used the equal breathing technique, Sama Vritti Pranayama, I learned in a Yin class on Day 9, pausing before each inhalation and exhalation. I held a favorite pose I learned in another class. I did lymphatic bouncing I’ve learned in my guided meditation practice I started in January of 2014.

I did some vibrational chakra tones to open up.

kelly93a

I did what my body asked of me, pulling from what I’d learned in the last 10 days and from past experience.

I sat in silence.

At the end of my practice tonight, I feel so open, light, and healthier than when I began.

Yoga is a practice that is great in a group/class setting. AND great wherever, too…

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLENESS!

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 5 (Tuesday)!


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 5 (Tuesday)!

yogachallenge

[ 3-6-5 ]

Today I celebrated the first of many milestones I will experience in the next 365 days:

  • I celebrate being 3 weeks into my 6-Week Transformation Circle for Entrepreneurs. The majority of the 11 participants are Health Coaches and I am so honored to be able to be the Vessel for Their Potential.
  • I celebrate completing 6 weeks of kickboxing, which I entered to win on a whim… and won! 🙂 I am strong and centered and finished this week stronger than I started, and excited to be continuing the practice with my amazing coach, Lydia.
  • I celebrate showing up for 5 days of yoga.  I was gifted 30 days of unlimited yoga 5 days ago, so I took the gift and decided to challenge myself to utilize it to the fullest. Today, I enjoyed a Yoga Basics class…   

[ The Experience ]

So far, I’ve participated in a Yin class, two Hatha Classes (Day 3, Day 4) and a Kundalini Yoga class in my 4 days of this Yoga challenge.  I should note that in 2004 I was part of a Yoga Thai Chi Dance Troupe, so I’m not entirely new to the practice of Yoga in its multi-faceted form.  However, the person who I am now is definitely new, and I am thankful to be back into practice, as I approach it from a new angle.

After a day of coaching clients individually and in group setting, then a crazy kickboxing day, allowing myself to settle into a Yoga Basics class was so fitting and SO welcomed.  It allowed me to release, to be present, and most importantly, my 830PM class allowed me to breathe.

[ The Takeaway ]

I love to challenge myself so that life becomes less challenging.

As I finish Day 5 of my 30 Day Yoga Challenge, I am finding that I feel my body more (I have hips! lol) and that I am even more intentional with my breath than I already am (it’s Day 82 of my challenge to meditate/chant for 40 days, btw).

With every challenge, from holding the space for entrepreneurs to unstick their mindset, to getting back in shape with kickboxing, to learning how to love Yoga, I am realizing that the key to allowing a challenge to become fun, less challenging, and filled with results, is hidden in the breath.

For with every breath, we calm our bodies, our minds and open our hearts to what is… that which speaks (if we’ll listen):

YOU HAVE ALL YOU NEED
YOU ARE PERFECT
YOU ARE ENOUGH
&
YOU HAVE UNLIMITED POTENTIAL.

Breathing allows us another chance to purposefully participate for another 365.

So take a moment to check-in… Are you breathing?

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLENESS!

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 3 (Sunday)!


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 3 (Sunday)!

yogachallenge[ All is Well ]

Do you have a personal mantra?

Earlier this year, I asked for help from one of my fellow Health Coaches at school.  I was trying to get back to center, to my core, which involved getting back into the water again, just for fun.

You see, I’d spent just under 15 years of my life as a competitive swimmer, and when I stopped being competitive, I also stopped enjoying being in the water. I actually had become fearful to just BE in the water, because for so long, swimming meant having to DO something (win, break records, go, go, go).  With a lil’ bit of encouragement, the Health Coach I worked with helped me to come up with a personal mantra earlier this year:

All is Well.

As the months past, I had almost forgotten my mantra. Today I was gently reminded of the importance of having a personal mantra when I attended my first Hatha Yoga Class.

[ The Experience ]

Screen Shot 2014-11-23 at 6.28.00 PMThe movements were repetitive. They weren’t to be forced. The mantra we used:

Here. Now.

As we inhaled the movements, we breathed in presence.

As we exhaled and moved, we released into the Now.

I found myself listening to my body and going deeper into each repetition, easier, more easy than how I had started when class begun.

[ The Takeaway ]

Our personal mantras usually sound like this:

I’m Tired. I’m late. I’m busy.

And what happens? Well, naturally, we get more of that which we think (thank you Law of Attraction!)  Our mantras become us.

I learned today to settle into the CHOICES I can make for myself each day, moment to moment.  I can choose to be busy, or choose to be immersed in the fact that all is well.  Just the same, I can choose to be lost in “out there”, or simply in the loving, supported blessing of BEING. Here. Now.

What’s your personal mantra?

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLENESS!

21 Ways To Feel Grateful


21 Ways To Feel Grateful

freedom-307791

Gratitude is an Attitude, A Feeling

Feelings are powerful signals that you are aligned with your destiny.  When you aren’t aligned, how do you feel?  My guess is you feel frustrated, angered, stress, overwhelmed, full of anxiety…

You get the point.

When you are aligned.  How do you feel? Do the words joyful, happy, blissful, wonderful and peaceful ring a bell?

Both types of feelings are normal.  However, when you feel grateful, you feel more like the words described when you are aligned with your destiny.

How to Feel Grateful

There are many ways to feel grateful, but the through-line is that there is a yummy feeling that washes over you.  It not only washes over you, it washes over the people around you, spreading out like a ripple of the sea…

In a nutshell, to feel grateful, do the things that make you feel good.

Here are 21 ways to feel grateful right now:

  1. Say Thank You

The #IINLive May Conference Recap


IINLIVEMAYCONF

#Selfie Mid-Dance during IIN Live May Conference (Not on Sugar)



THE INTRO TO THE RECAP:

The weekend of May 16th, I attended a conference hosted by the Institute of Integrative Nutrition (IIN). The 2-day learning extravaganza took place in NYC, and I attended virtually thanks to the advancement of live-streaming technology.  I frantically took notes that weekend, locked away in my room, much to the annoyance of one of my roommates and her friends who imbibed libations and immersed themselves in debauchery, because, as she later would berate me, she thought I was “not being friendly”.

Alas, I am an empathic introvert, AND seeing that the conference wouldn’t just pause for me, I had no time to waste. I said a short hello and retreated…

I’m in school with HUGE goals and well, I guess sometimes those closest to you just don’t get it.

At any rate, during the conference, I really started to get excited about being a student at IIN and the integration of Health Coaching into my 11 years of being an award-winning DJ.  I began to see my future, to stand in it fully and confidently, and with the conviction that what I’m doing now would have to pay off later, so that I could not only help others, but be able to take breaks and hang out more often (though, I don’t drink alcohol anymore since Dec 7, 2012, minus a few hiccups the first few months).

BIGGEST TAKE~AWAYS:

There was so much information that I could literally just transcribe my notes, but I’ll spare you, gentle reader, and give you some points to ponder:

  • “Stress less” ~ Keri Glassman, Registered Dietician (Stress and Relaxation can’t live together, take a moment to enjoy an 8-count breath)
    • My thought: “Intend Relax”
  • “Have a Purpose + Follow it” ~ Nitika Chopra
  • Google/Bing/Wiki Doctor “Lissa Rankin”.  Enough said there. Or better yet, just go to her website. She dropped knowledge on a whole ‘nother level of vibrating! Three words: “Mind Over Medicine”.
  • “Know your priorities; priorities = prosperity” ~ Marie Forleo (She also had a wonderful 3-year Painted Picture exercise that really resonated with me)
  • Dr. Oz and IIN founder, Joshua Rosenthal are making major moves to get Health Coaches covered by Insurance.  That’s HUGE and makes for a very exciting time to become a health coach.
  • “Obesity does not equal calories, but it equals the composition of foods we eat… Metabolic rate, fat storage and hunger depends on dietary composition.” ~ Dr. Mark Hyman
  • GO SEE FED UP The movie!

THE CONCLUSION, THE VISION:

I am working towards a world that is Authentic, where being Youthful is Yummy and Prosperity reigns for all, and all these things are for the Highest Good Of All Concerned!
I am motivated to make sure the Earth and Her People come to Extreme Peace, Love and Goodness. I am grateful for my Vision. I know it. I am ready!

After the conference, it became clear to me that in 3-years, I will be in Radio (thanks to the 3-year Painted Picture exercise!)
So, stay tuned! 🙂
