[ Meditation… Part 1 of 3 ]

Have you ever wondered this about meditation?

I’ve been reading a lot about it and
feel the benefits from it but what exactly does meditation do for the body?
I know it activates certain parts of the brain but I’m not clear on what exactly that means. 

One of my clients asked me this in my inbox and I thought it would be a great series to dive into with you.

Sure, I’ve written about my personal experiences with meditation, like the time I I did a 10-day yoga challenge (starting at day 95).  But you probably were wondering, “what does meditation do for the body?”

[ Meditation Does A Body Good! ]

According to SoundsTrue.Com, meditation on the body can help you:

  • Channel revitalizing energy throughout your body and 

  • Uncover your body’s untapped powers of perception, intuition, and wisdom.

We live in an overly stimulated world, so when you can channel energy to make yourself feel good, your body can literally carry you longer and work more optimally!

Meditation can structurally change your brain… “thickening some areas, and making others less dense”…

Similarly, we are mammals, and meditation allows you to attune to the silent messages your body tells you to signal happiness, balance, and yes, even illness.  Body Scanning Meditation awakens you to what your body needs and wants to tell you:

As a youth, Levine was incarcerated several times. His first book, Dharma Punx, details teenage years filled with drugs, violence, and multiple suicide attempts—choices fuelled by disillusionment with American mainstream culture. His substance abuse started early in life—at age six he began smoking marijuana—and finally ended in a padded detoxification cell in juvenile prison 11 years later. It was in this cell where he hit “an emotional rock bottom” and began his vipassana practice “out of a place of extreme drug addiction and violence” While incarcerated, he saw for the first time how the practice his father taught him gave him the tools to relieve the fear and uncertainty that pervaded his life.

One notable aspect of Buddhist Dharma is the path of our choices, the actions past and present and the intention for future action (Buddhist Law of Karma). Levine’s past—addiction, incarceration, violence, initial rejection of Buddhism and meditation—are all defining characteristics of his writings and teachings. “We all sort of have a different doorway to dharma or spiritual practice. Suffering is a doorway. For me it was the suffering of addiction, violence and crime which opened me at a young age, 17 years old. I was incarcerated, looking at the rest of my life in prison and thought, ‘Maybe I will try dad’s hippie meditation bullshit.’ Suffering opened me to the possibility of trying meditation.”

He currently leads Dharma and vipassana meditation retreats and workshops across the United States and teaches weekly meditation classes in Los Angeles. A member of the Prison Dharma Network, Levine works with juvenile and adult prison inmates, combining meditation techniques with psychotherapy. He “explores how they can have a deeper understanding of what has happened and what they need to do in order to be free, on many levels—free from prison, free from the trauma of the past.”

He has helped found several groups and projects including the Mind Body Awareness Project, a non-profit organization that serves incarcerated youths. Introducing them to the Buddha’s teachings. He lists the 14th Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, Ram Dass, Joseph Goldstein, Sharon Salzberg, Norman Fischer, and Sylvia Boorstein as his teachers.

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 28 (Tightrope, Eyes Closed)


My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 28

(Tightrope, Eyes Closed)

yogachallenge

[ New heights ]

The other day I was in Yoga Basics and our teacher had us do a pose that took me to new heights.

We were asked to stand with feet in line with each other, heel to toe, and balance.  First with eyes open, then with eyes slightly open.

Finally, we were doing a tightrope, eyes closed.

[ The Experience ]

Today, I did my yoga practice at home, integrating the tightrope into my experience.  Though it was nothing like this,

Tightrope-walker_1-620x339

allowing myself to find balance with my eyes closed felt as liberating as this:

[ The Takeaway ]

I feel strong, clear and I trust myself and my body more than ever.  This 30 Day Yoga Challenge has really awakened me to my SELF, my essence and the power I have within me.

I enjoy yoga. I love it.  15-minutes lifts me up just as much as 75-minutes. Yoga brings me to appreciate life.  I feel energized. I feel alive.

All good things.

My 30 Day Yoga Challenge, Day 24

(Honor The Moon)

yogachallenge

[ 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!

The November #IIN Conference Recap!


The November #IIN Conference Recap!

Nova Jade* ~ Ambassador For Health + Happiness!

What a weekend it has been!

My 31st birthday was yesterday, and I have just finished being immersed in the most inspiring learning at the Institute For Integrative Nutrition’s November Live Conference, which was broadcast live from New York City, November 8 and 9th, 2014.  Herein is my recap!

By the way, this is one of my longest posts, but I wanted to make sure I covered as much as possible, though I only highlighted everything I experienced this weekend. 🙂

Ready? Let’s dive in…

[ The World’s Largest Nutrition School ]

Screen shot 2014-11-09 at 2.37.44 PM

International Participants join the stage at the November IIN Conference!

The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, or IIN, is celebrating it’s 20th year and is THE World’s Largest Nutrition School.  At this weekend’s conference, there were students attending live and via online from places including: Moldova, London, Canada, Kuwait, Mexico, Poland, South and West Africa and Australia, in addition to the USA!

IIN is a GLOBAL community.

I am glad to be a part of the ripple as a current student. My graduation is February 2015, and in the time I have been a student, I have learned way more invaluable information and experienced transformation more priceless than my tuition can be “valued” at.

Part of the invaluable information and priceless transformation has happened “outside” of the classroom, via the LIVE Conferences.

[ The Conference Speakers ]

We had a lot of great Keynote speakers, as well as past and present graduates who shared their stories throughout the conference.  Here were some of my favorite speakers of the weekend (Click on the images to see the comment threads on Facebook):

 IIN is great at bringing World Class Education to the students and graduates it serves, and I’m honored to have learned from these wonderful speakers and others this weekend!

[ My Top 5 Highlights ]

I don’t know where to begin.  But I will share with you 5 Highlights that I learned that you should know about to further your health, happiness and WHOLEness.

Remember: you can click the images to head to join/read the Facebook threads for the highlights!

  1. You can invest in your future, right now.  Here are the tools that Manisha Thakor Recommended (PS: Read more About Manisha to know why you may want to listen to what she says!)Screen shot 2014-11-09 at 2.55.45 PM

I’m all about raising my vibration and consciousness, and I’m also an Early Adaptor.  If you are too, then this is for you!Daniel Vitalis introduced us to f.lux, which, “makes the color of your computer’s display adapt to the time of day, warm at night and like sunlight during the day.”  Learn more and download it here: https://justgetflux.com/

    Just Get F.lux!
  3. Fermented vegetables can be easily homemade. Did you know all illness begins in the gut?  Did you know that a good way to keep a healthy gut is through fermented vegetables (probiotics)?Well, whether or not you knew it, making fermented foods is really easy, and with the Perfect Pickler, it is made even easier (and cheaper)! There’s no more excuses for a healthy belly! http://www.perfectpickler.comScreen shot 2014-11-09 at 4.07.20 PM
  4. Health Coaches are a viable solution.  “Bought” is a powerful film exploration into the big money field of Medicine.  Watch this informative trailer here: http://youtu.be/ckOVDMDiZbkScreen shot 2014-11-09 at 3.57.20 PM
  5. Health Coaches are on the rise and making an IMPACT! There is now a newly formed community of global Health Coaches, called the International Association for Health Coaches, which was spearheaded by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition‘s Founder, Joshua Rosenthal.I am a PROUD member! 🙂

    The International Association for Health Coaches is the world’s largest collection of Health Coaches and wellness professionals, dedicated to advancing the health coaching profession.

So, the big question is “Are health coaches future of Health Care?”
Watch this short video and do let me know your thoughts:

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.

Top Health Coach Success Tip: “10 Benefits of Vegetarianism”


Top Health Coach Success Tip: “10 Benefits of Vegetarianism”

fruit-basket-396622_1280

Do you want a lil’ pep in your step? Would you like to contribute to a healthy planet? Do you want to save money on your grocery bill?

A vegetarian diet has several benefits when properly balanced and nutrient dense. However, just because a diet is “meat-free” does not necessarily mean it is healthy. Benefits can be negated when a healthy lifestyle does not follow suit. In contrast, a diet containing meat is not always unhealthy. For example, eating a salad isn’t enough if you are sedentary, frequently enjoying high-fat junk foods, or smoking cigarettes! Consuming an adequate amount of calories and eating a variety of healthy food is just as important.

If you’re looking to add more vegetarianism into your lifestyle, check out the 10 benefits below to motivate you!

PS: Note: Vegetarian diets may not be for everyone, it’s all about bio-individuality, the concept that “no one diet fits all”!

BETTER MOOD

Research reveals information suggesting vegetarians may be happier than their meat-eating counterparts. In fact, it was found that vegetarians had lower scores on depression tests and mood profiles when compared to fish and meat-eaters.1

DISEASE FIGHTING

When done right, lactovegetarian, lacto-ovo-vegetarian, or vegan diets are naturally low in total fat, saturated fat, and cholesterol and have been shown to reduce heart disease risk. Epidemiologic data has shown vegetarians suffer less disease caused by a modern Western diet (e.g., coronary heart disease, hypertension, obesity, type 2 diabetes, diet-related cancers, diverticulitis, constipation, and gall stones, among several others).2

This can be attributed to a higher intake in fiber, phytonutrients, antioxidants, flavonoids, and carotenoids.

LEAN FIGURE

Vegetarians typically weigh less as a result of a diet comprised of fewer calories in the form of grains, legumes, nuts, seeds, fruits, and vegetables.3

LESS TOXICITY

Foodborne illnesses, antibiotics, bacteria, parasites, and chemical toxins are more common in commercial meat, poultry, and seafood when compared with plant foods, (particularly organic fruits and vegetables).

SAVING THE PLANET

A plant-based diet is better for the planet as it requires less energy and farmland to feed a vegetarian.

SIGHT

Vegetarians tend to have better vision and less macular degeneration.4

MONEY SAVING

Plant foods tend to be less expensive, except for a few delicacies, saving on overall costs.

BETTER ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE

While most active individuals focus on protein intake, they should be advised that, when done right, a high-carbohydrate, low-fat, and vitamin and mineral-rich vegetarian diet may be optimal for sports performance. Conflicting studies exist, but the number of world-class vegetarian athletes continues to rise.

SUPPORTING ANIMAL RIGHTS

Ethical reasons can be a consideration when choosing a vegetarian diet.

LONGEVITY

Vegetarians have been found to enjoy longer and healthier lives when compared to meat-eaters.5

15 Great #Inspirational #Quotes to be Grateful For [ #Gratitude ]


“15 Great Inspirational Quotes To Be Grateful For”

gratitude

It’s Gratitude Thursday!

How will you help someone today?

Last week you were presented with 7 Even More Awesome Gratitude Quotes to inspire you…

Today I present you 15 Great Inspirational Quotes to Be Grateful for via a great WordPress Blog I found.
Remember, often times the food that fuels you isn’t what you eat… Gratitude is definitely food, allow it to fuel you!

We live in a world where trauma is no longer taboo, yet you and I sometimes forget that we aren’t alone.  Hopefully these quotes will put some things in perspective for you to get through difficult times.

I’ve added one:

“With every trauma you experience, there is an opportunity for growth.
Your PTSD has a mate in Post Traumatic Stress Growth (“PTSG”).
Go out and find it.”

Here’s the link to the article… http://traumaanddissociation.wordpress.com/2013/12/08/inspiring-positive-quotes1/
