My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 24

(Honor The Moon)

[ Celebrate Womanhood ]

There was a time when I would get my menstrual cycle and I would be utterly disappointed.

For me, it meant

horrible pain, dizziness, dehydration, exhaustion and the complete feeling of helplessness. 

You see, I was raised by a single-parent father. And though I appreciate and respect him for doing the best he could to raise a daughter by himself (since I was 5-months old), I still had to learn how to be a woman in many ways by myself. The first time I had a period, I was 9 years old… through shear trauma and pain, I finally started to have what I call, “a happy period”, in my mid-20s.

Today, I celebrate my period, my menstrual cycle, my happy period, my Moon Cycle, as a way to Celebrate Womanhood.

[ The Experience ]

Today was the first time in over a year or so where my Moon Cycle came with a vengeance.  I totally credit it to not taking care of myself this past week; working on my business overtime, and eating junk to save time.  Bad idea! LOL

But, I thank the beautiful practice of Yoga being in my life. Because even though I didn’t make it to a class at the studio today, I was able to still do Yoga.  I looked online for some Menstrual Cycle-specific poses and found some.  I integrated one of the poses into my practice today and you have no idea how grateful I am!

In case you are curious, here are two of the resources I found:

Pose #1:  Bow pose or dhanurasana
Pose #1: Bow pose or dhanurasana

[ The Takeaway ]

Yoga is just a beautiful thing.  I never thought that 22 years after having my first Moon Cycle I’d be tending to my discomfort with Yoga, targeting my belly and lower back in gentle, effective ways.  My breathing deepened at the end of my practice tonight, too (when I first started, it was shallow and fast).

The best part, I only invested 20 minutes of my time for this healing. I find that as I Salute the Sun in my practice, Yoga also allows me to Honor The Moon.

Now, I will definitely continue Yoga (and eat right and balance my work load properly).  

Oh and I also use Carnelian, a healing crystal to naturally heal my Moon Cycle discomfort, as well as to stay focused in my business. Win-win!

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!

[ #GentleNudge ] 15Oct2014: The Secret To Making Your Life Easier


#GentleNudge 15Oct2014:
The Secret To Making Your Life Easier

freedom-307791Celebrate

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

[ The First 100 Years Are The Hardest ]

My grandpa is 91.

He says the first 100 years are always the hardest.  He’s been saying it as long as I can remember.

On the one hand, I find myself laughing because it is a rather hilarious statement.

On the other hand, as I get older, I find myself wondering,

“100 years?! How can I shorten that time?” 

Because I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to spend 100 of my 120 years here trudging through the mud! 🙂  I spent the last 30 years getting myself unglued from the illusion of the Earth, and I’d like to keep it that way!

So, I mulled it over, and

Then one day, it clicked.

There IS a way to shorten the hardship of the years.
(It’s actually so simple, I realized children do it all the time!)

baby-433093_1920

Want to know the secret?

[ You Make Your Life Easier By Celebrating ]

Yup.  As children, even though life is “hard”, we celebrate, clapping and shouting “YAY!” every chance we get in celebration of new things we’ve accomplished or learned.

And generally speaking, our parents and caregivers are there to root us on as we uncover new territory with each new step we make towards progressing into fully-formed human beings.

We celebrate learning to talk, walk, eat, even poop.  We celebrate being alive with birthdays…

Speaking of which, I know that celebrating birthdays are not a part of some religious faiths, and I’ve always known this, but it just dawned on me that to not celebrate is like enslaving one to forgetting the reason we are here on Earth: to be joyful and happy.

Celebration is healthy, and therefore, it brings us more health and well-being.

When we don’t celebrate, even the smallest things like another year being born, to me, it feels like we are actually slapping the Universe in the mouth with un-appreciation.

Plus,

[ There is power in Celebration ]

OK, another soap box moment here:  Just as I don’t condone not celebrating things like your life through a birthday or other similar ceremony or ritual, I also don’t condone the act of celebrating things that shouldn’t be recognized… Example: *ahem* Thanksgiving Day, “aka” Colonization Day.  It’s like giving credit to and celebrating the person who won something, even though they stole the idea from their lab partner.

Just sayin’.

Whether you celebrate or don’t celebrate, (and whether you celebrate with integrity or not), there is POWER in celebration.

So, I say, celebrate with integrity. It will set you free…

[Celebrating vs being grateful]

I am working with a client who asked me the other day, “what is the difference between celebrating and being grateful? How would you specify?”

My answer: Celebrating is just one way to be grateful.  At the same time, when you are grateful you’ll have a lot to celebrate, because when you are grateful you’ll attract more of that to be grateful for!

oprah-500x503

So, in essence what is the REAL secret to making your life easier?

Being grateful.

Ever notice that all roads lead back to gratitude? More over, having an attitude of gratitude?  Could life really be that simple and easy?

[ What if I don’t have anything to celebrate? ]

There’s ALWAYS something to celebrate and be grateful for.  And if you’re not being grateful, I know from personal experience that you’ll stay in the same rut, and even fall deeper into the negative mind matrix… such a slippery slope!

When I’ve been in my deepest darkest depressive states through my teens into my 20s (and I mean depression, not sadness), I’ve found myself not being grateful that I even  had a bed to be depressed in in the first place.

The more I filled my brain with ungrateful thoughts, the deeper my despair became.  But, something would spark in me, or I’d “randomly” get a call from a friend, or some other Gentle Nudge from the Universe that reminded me of the things to celebrate and be grateful for.  I would put effort into making the shift and then more of the good things to celebrate and be grateful for would show up, almost “miraculously”…

alwayssomething

[ Celebrate Life ]

Start with life. Celebrate your life, and the fact that you were a fast swimmer and were birthed. 🙂

If you’re a woman, don’t think of your periods as disgusting, celebrate them as the essence of your beauty.

If you’re a man, don’t think of being without work as emasculating, celebrate the time to discover the essence of your power.

If you’re a teen, don’t think of your life as over when you feel no one gets you.  CELEBRATE that most people will never understand you because you’re f*ckin’ awesome!

Celebrate every small step.  I’ll be 2 years sober in December 2014, but I had a few missteps in the beginning.  Did I get angry? No, I celebrated the process and kept going!

Celebrate your breath, celebrate your heart, celebrate the one friend you have, because truly you don’t need 100 friends who just talk about you behind your back.

[ I am grateful for my grandpa ]

selfiegrandpa

When I felt unloved, unsupported and like I had nothing to be grateful for, my grandpa was always there to inspire and motivate me.  And the same goes for when everything was going well… Grandpa Greene is always there to inspire and motivate me.

Truly, he is the reason I am alive.

Who is that person for you?
(whether they are alive or not)

If they are still living, Let them know as soon as you can.

Because just as good as you feel to celebrate, people love to know they are appreciated.  You’ll not only shave off hardship time for yourself, but you’ll also do the same for them.

Remember what my grandpa told me in the beginning of this post? You now hold the secret to re-writing that statement for yourself!

Here’s to your health, happiness and WHOLENESS!

Happy Thanksgiving Canada! Free the Turkey or Eat the Turkey? #meatlessmonday


Happy Thanksgiving Canada! Free the Turkey or Eat the Turkey?
turkey-180593_1280

It’s #meatlessmonday!

And it’s Thanksgiving in Canada…

If you’re a meat-eater trying to go meatless, will you do it tomorrow?

If you’re a non meat-eater (like me), will you allow your meat-eating friend(s) to have free will and eat meat today?

While you’re thinking about it, check out these 10 Benefits of Vegetarianism. 🙂

Life REmixing Tip: Whatever side of the Turkey debate you are on (or even the debate about celebrating Thanksgiving as a colonizing holiday), I encourage you to take a moment to be grateful for what you have: the people, the food, the you!

Happy Mother’s Day #Forgiveness


I wrote my #mother a letter
a few weeks ago.

I’ve never met her.

Just wanted to let her know,
that I forgive her
and how I’ve let go of
All the past hurt
In order to heal.

Today is Mother’s Day.
And, I’ll find her on Facebook + hit send on the letter.
So I can fully be My Own Woman
And truly begin to feel.

Deep breath…

Wholeness.

Growth.
And Love.

Happy Day to You #Mom.

All Moms, I commend You
For Doing What You Do…

For even those without Ma,
Even those with Mommy whom “I can’t stand thee” sometimes,
We all Still couldn’t have done it without you.
I guess these are the ties that bind.

Thank you for giving me life.
