Such a luscious time of year! The energy of life alive in our vision! Vibrant color, green, trees, flowers, tulips, daffodils, all in it's most beautiful life energy after winters rest! The carpets of daffodils or tulips flow into existence as a stream of delightful color! You can feel this alive, fluid, vital energy clearly! How are you going to use it?
The magic is in the flow! We hear it all the time and yet still miss it. The flow is going. It is flowing where it does. Our desire for certainty makes us not want to let go and flow. Yet does the flow know where it is going? Or is it made of all the many things and their choices in it all. It is harmonious, unified field that is moving like a tornado, It goes where the nature of things takes it. That seems scary to us.
However, we have all been in the flow to know it is not scary. Our mind may make up a worry then it could get that way but usually it is just a rush of Yippee! It is fun, exciting, expansive, innovative, restful at times and moving at others. We know it exists. We have positively experienced it that we know that delight is the word that comes in as the flow.
As this past year has been such a regroup for everyone, this sense of feeling the flow has become heightened. We want it. We like the slower pace with rest and innovation time. As we chillax, the flow inspires us with ideas and actions. This is key to flowing. The quiet, calm, rejuve, listen part. So here we are when energy of life, is moving forward! The vitality, sensuality, creativity, innovation, rebirth energy is here to ride. You don't have to run high speed, you can flow as it does and ENJOY!
Let go of the full plan and let a bit more curiosity, spontaneity and meandering in to sense this flow, Be prepared to be inspired, surprised, enthused, delighted and happy about what unfolds. Open to the forward not in a prepared way, in a magic way of following the flow. What happens next???, in a fun surprising tone vs a fearful prepared for all nightmares. Yes, be alert. More importantly, anticipate a wonderful future of bloom. That's what's happening in front of you. Life juices up as the sun comes closer!
Ride the wave, live your passion, be alive and aware. All these phrases so clear in the spring. You can see the whole world unfold as magic in front of you as all balances in love. You too, create exactly the same way. Feeling, seeing, anticipating, visioning, preparing, creating, moving toward whatever you want. It is right here to use this optimism, this sensual, sexual creative energy of spring to create.
The sweet spot of life! What will I create next? This is where the passion, flow, inspiration and joy rolls under you to thrive!

As I situate myself into this new year, spring has me designing a more active, rhythmed life. I like to shift and change yet there is syncopation in order. It doesn't have to be order that chokes you. A flow to your day that adds in the things you value for health, beauty, inspiration and passion.
As I create a list of ways to support me in my day, I find they are things to satisfy myself to feel safe, healthy, productive and enjoying. I put them in categories that sound good to me. Habits that I like for they will support me being my best. In creating, if there are things I am not doing my best, I add in a practice here and there to get them automatically in my day.
As spring brings more movement, I want to use my energy wisely. Not doing too much or too little. Doing the things I want, that make me feel good, safe and supported. I do these for myself and don't expect others to give me that feel good. If they do it is my pleasure to receive. I plan in my fulfillment and contentment first. If I am to support the world in a big way, I need to be overflowing not drained or hindered. Here is my micro add ons.
Feeling good in my body and glow. There are many ways to support yourself physically. I go for the least amount but greatest punch movements. I have done my few morning movements and been slowly amping it up as spring settles in. I consider movement my way to clear energy, generate energy and keep my base strong. Dancing and tai chi, some yoga and outdoor adventure are my movements to feel good in my body. Other times it was gardening or bike rides. We can add what we want this new season, new or old. If you want to feel good, inspired, passionate, you must move!
Pampering myself. I have some healing practices for my eyes, eating a lighter dinner supports my weight, going to bed earlier, weekly baths when it feels good and getting healing and beauty treatments monthly. Self care and healing a daily choice and a valuable one. Taking time to really relax and give myself gratitude for all the things I will be doing. I can support myself to feel pampered and cared for in a myriad of ways. I give myself permission to do them daily.
Contributing to the world, my work. How am I sharing health and beauty with the world? I promote the Magical Holistic Healing Arts podcast and Kangen water, offering ways to health. I share the things I learn from both of them and through green lifestyle choices that work for me. I can expand how I do this, remembering I am sharing a lifestyle. It is about many actions that support me in holistic health. I make these choices for myself and offer others to do the same. I connect people and ways of health.
Create a sense of belonging, of community. One that inspires me, accepts me and supports me as I do them. I have a strong far away community and now need to create a local in person one. We can discern who to be around and find them. We need others on many levels. Relationships with good communication takes time. Networks are built over time and we want them to be like us in many ways. Not as a clique, but as likeminded with similar values or goals. We all have many communities: work, neighborhood, hobby, family, friends and learning. I continue to develop these and could jump into something new each week to keep exploration open.
Doing what is fun and makes me happy. I share when others join my mailing list, about having a list of things that create happiness. It should be ongoing. Ideas for when we have a minute to when we have a day. Exploring our art of fun and pleasure as we go along. New and expanding ways as well as the old favorites. It is good to question what makes me happy, how can I have fun. Daily choices that inspire, give me enthusiasm and passion. Exploration is fun so I plan in weekly new ways to enjoy and giggle. A list to have and do for a good life.
There are my spring lists of daily choices I am creating. It is not your standard work goals that seem to often consume us. That will happen for it is the nature of work busy. These lists are the important things that I may leave out as life speeds up. Yet they are most important.
Make your daily choices, write them and consider them. Add in the juicing a few mornings or that salutation to the sun. Extend to new friends, work peers and partners. Find ways that pamper you daily so if all else fails you have a back up plan that nurtures. These ideas call me this spring to be most supportive of my success and well being. And....... with micro add ons, they will be my new habits to carry me forth.
Spring forward in life, vitality and joy.
What a challenging time! As a Clinical Homeopath, having been promoting the healing arts for 10 years now and having a podcast you tube called The Magical Holistic Healig Arts., I have a different point of view than the local govts., news channels and so called experts about all of this. It does not make sense to me of all I have learned about health. The narrative, the sensor ship, of many, it is ludicrous.
We all know that in a trial, there is both sides and each have their experts. Many times, especially in legal disagreements with business, environment, sickness, all of it, they don't agree but atleast we get to hear all the information. Why not now? They are sensoring all the other ideas that we should get a chance to hear. There has never been a time in my life where even the news people are giving opinions not clear facts. I listen and you know exactly what they think. We aren't supposed to know news peoples opinions! They are to give us facts!
At this time, we are not getting all the information from many experts in the fields that we need to hear. We could then make greater choices with all the info. You have to be in circles of healers, Drs., Medical technicians, etc... to unravel what appears to be happening. And there is no full conclusion in those circles other than "what are they doing?" Speed and medical research do not go hand in hand. They are not following the rules that they set up regarding any of the institutions. I don't know how to support a greater knowing about health when we can't get all the views. And if we post something different, it will get taken down. Never was I sensored before as I have been now.
Most vaccines take 10 years until they come to market! This was less than a year with no testing! We have been wearing PPL for a year now so I am sure there are plenty of ideas on wearing coverings, etc.. and how that effects health but we hear nothing of this! It doesn't make sense that we all must get a shot when it is untested, we have no symptoms, and the test results have been questioned along the way, It all just doesn't make common sense. They don't have info to say it will even work! I think as people we have to really do some of our own research to find the answer that is best for us. Health is considered a private matter, thus hippa! So all of this seems to be going against traditions we set up. Where is the privacy?
I am blessed to be ok for a minute, not have to wear any covering most of the day and can go out in the world for needs and connections. However, I disagree and continue to tune in to see what I can learn as it unfolds. This is all new and we all need to pay attention.. I am concerned about this moment in medicine for it just isn't being done as it was set up to do. Never could we get a medicine so fast and make it almost mandatory for something in the cold category or flu, which we have never been able to get rid of anyway. It shifts and we make a new flu shot each year. It is all just absurd and I need to voice it somewhere. I invite you to investigate further your choices!
I am glad I got this illness so my body can evolve. Our bodies grow, evolves, the microbiome gains health from contact with the illness in our world. We are like a bag of many bacterias and critters. To keep our immune system strong, we need to do the things that will help. Masks, shots, isolation all create their own illness. Studies show Vitamin D, Zinc support greater health, Healthy people should not be hiding from life. It is just crazy! Synthetic genetic stuff untested into my body doesn't make sense to this garden goddess.
I don't intend to sway anyone to my point of view. I just want us all to think clearly about this situation. We are all different and how we manage health is different. Most who spent time in preventative measures, feel very different than the main news. I just want us all to reach, make sure the choices we make are done with the best info we have and with our hearts to guide us. I don't' think we are receiving all the information from the medical field that needs to be heard. I think tests on the masks can be now done, the spread, all of it has been here and where are the tests and studies on how this is all effecting us. Let alone on the mental level, the ripple of this crisis for years to come.
This is my field of interest and work so I want to share that other ideas are out there.
Please take the time to manage this all with the best knowledge. Check out some different points of view and be sure that what you believe on wellness fits the bill. Find your own way and I back you in that. But do dig deeper. The basics just don't fit with the way we have lived. They are changing the rules quite wildly and I am not so convinced it has anything to do with health. Wear three masks? What about oxygen the giver of life? How about the exhale of what our body is getting rid of, why are we taking it back in? Doesn't fit my educated, analytical mind.
Light to it all! May we all find greater health from this crisis!
I am very glad I drink ionized water! The master detox and hydration!
My biggest learning of this last year that is so key to discuss is to be softer toward all things. Soft yin energy of compassion is delectable. Loves great form of kindness that embraces all, considers all including your self. Valentines day is right about the corner, asking us to consider love in all things. Going through such an odd year I have softened in many ways. Most importantly toward myself.
I have let go of the tough critic in my head that has a very hard yin quality. There is a time to evaluate and discern yet it doesn't need to be the only view. We are raised with a very critical view in many ways. It is important to reflect on things to see how to improve. that is diferrent than this driving source of judgement at ourselves, at what life brings and at others.
The soft yin of acceptance, what is is and that our relationship with the "is", supports to crest past the "is". The soft yin accepts, warms and brings in compassion toward all things. It is truly the energy of spirit, love, kindness, all things good.
It has been a challenge for the whole year brought up many ideas and judgements we all make about life, institutions, ourselves, others and circumstances. Our idea of the world, safety, what would happen next, fear of illness, all of it shifted from what we thought. The critical part of me, having more open and quiet time, jumped in to ask "Should I do more? Should I be seeking more, pushing more, driving onward harder?" At a regular time maybe these questions may be appropriate. Last year and even now, slow pace, less direct interaction and simplicity are here. Not the action time or pace of previous years.
As I have made sense of it, I have found just how much of me judges myself, my value, my success based on what I call east coast pace that is not appropriate now where I am on the journey. A softer yin, of receptivity, compassion, openness to different ideas and ways toward myself and the whole world are appropriate. Giving ourselves kudos for managing, adapting through last year rather than creating ways to move quick. A deep breath of whew, seems more nourishing.
Many innovated greatly, we all have changed our connection channels to be open to socialize without being together. We have gotten rest and cleared many areas of our homes. We have improved our dwellings to be more supportive of being in them so often rather than out and about. We have been incredible pioneers. Allowing this acknowledgment of ourselves is part of this soft yin. Compassion for ourselves and how we have managed.
I also have found soft yin for others. Many believe differently than I yet I have honored that diversity through this compassion, and opened to the more simple things we can agree on however small. I have found great warmth in my heart for many others. Their trials, their adaptability just as important as mine. Giving loving acceptance that we are all human and despite our differences, we all are seeking goodness for our families. I have found greater compassion toward all humanity through this past year. I always thought I was compassionate yet now I am even more.
The soft yin, this nourishing trait, bridges gaps and celebrates uniqueness in us all. It is warm and kind, embracing and understanding. I have found so much more of this in myself toward myself as I journey in new lands. The celebration of me, my unique point of view and reference. No one but myself needs to give me that celebration. As energy goes, it draws in others that have the same soft yin compassion towards me to emerge.
Soft yin energy flows. It arises and creates with the heart. I like this great acceptance and learning that I was not taught in the fullness. It is needed at this tine in the world.
I encourage you to adapt a soft yin approach. Whether it is an insight, a perspective or an opening of your heart to all things here. It has settled me into myself deeper. it is creating a life of less drama and more care. Care for me. Care for the conditions and circumstances others are dealing with. It has opened my heart even greater which is the call of February. We need a softer world. We all find greater experiences and deeper pleasures when we open to this nourishing softness. It is an expanded way of being that crisis has brought.
I can only name it compassion. It is the love energy that coagulates, bonds things. I feel it inwardly and outwardly in greater depth. Understanding supports life. Kindness inspires others. We are here together so a softer approach seems embracing, mother like. We are the mothers and fathers of the future. Lets lovingly usher in this softer conscious responsibility of compassion for all, ourselves included.
Blessings in love!
Here I am in this new state, new life completely and in a covid world of slow pace. Most of last year has been a rest and recoup for me. One year ago, still recovering from illness, death of my mom and others, I decided to pick up and go out west! I am not so sure my mind was clear but it was the first things that inspired me to get up and doing. I was wiped out by the year before, still exhausted from illness and hyper life, yet inspired into quick moves, organizing stuff, shutting down projects I was involved in and leaping into a new adventure.
It seems so recent yet so far at once. I actually in retrospect was probably not in full wit or clarity but emotionally was looking to get enthused. I love the energy of creating and was tired of the sadness of the year before. A new year draws us into coming up with direction. In my mind it would all go smooth and wonderful as all our visualizations go, so off I went. Only moments before deciding to move, I also decided to educate on water and sell Kangen Ionizers in my new home. New business, new state, new climate and open to some fun.
Well covid hit and I thankfully have had a good portion of the year acclimating, healing, resting and seeing with intention where my energy should go. We all know how our year ended and mine no different. Isolation, introspection, education and small leaps into my new community. As I begin this year, I feel a whole different way and the energies in the world in some ways even wilder but indeed lighter. I consider for all of us, 2020 was a foundation year. Many made incredible changes in work and life, faced themselves in a lot of isolation and working from home. So much was learned about ourselves not all in beauty, much in frustration. But it is all gone on one level as the year is over.
We have all adapted tremendously to this new world scene. I got a head cold so as it occurs, a year later and I am in recoup yet again. As part of winter I revisit and imagine my year ahead! I review with my stuffy nose I think "Wow, you changed it up while the world was changing up!" So firstly, I want us all to really revel in how good we did last year. Whatever you faced, you managed. We are still here coming up with new dreams and ideas about life. So revel in the glory of one of the hardest years!! I leaped across country! We all did great!
Now we are in a new year with much lighter energy. Covid is part of our lives so we are not in panic or stress in the same way. We have acclimated. So there is no real panic about that anymore. Staying healthy, wearing masks, watching where we go, is not just part o life. Crisis mode can leave us. Breathe into a new president and a new year. Lots of change about just in it being a new year of possibility!
I inspire you as I have done, to daydream the desires you want for the new year. Dr. Joe Dispenza, Bruce Lipton, so many have always told us to spend time daydreaming what we want. We don't make time for it really. We perhaps do it here and there when we get a minute which isn't often. "Where you place your focus, there will be your heart!" I always loved that quote and am learning to live it fully. We aren't using our creation power, our creative Imagination enough. We use it to imagine our nightmares but what about what we want. I know you have heard this time and again but are you doing it? Are you putting quality time considering now, in this moment, this new year, what you want?
Here we are in the beginning of a new cycle. Freedom is the energy about. What are you freeing yourself from and what are you doing to create more freedom in life? How can you feel more joy and happiness? How can life become fun again in light of last years wierdness? How are you going to use your mind to create a good year and even shift your dna while doing? In the quiet time before spring pops us, we have time to sow our seeds of the year. Truly take the time to do it.
As Dr. Joe and Dr. Bruce , our newest masters on epigenetics, we must put our mind into getting out of the every day to space out intentionally and feel our future. The science is out there. The idea of visualization has been around for ions. Will you do it this year in full force? Will you let auto pilot run you or will you put a few minutes a day to see what you want in life?
I know this works, we all do. I did it most of this past year. Even in covid and low socialability, I sold kangen machines, made new biz partners, found a few social groups, traveled about my new home to outdoor adventures, and am finding greater health than years before. I dreamed it all up. I came out with knowing no one but my daughter and now I have a full new life with community and joy. Nothing stopped those seeds I sowed. Nothing can stop our imagination when used daily towards your desires in the right ways. You move your life where you want it to go. Your the only one with the power.
I invite you to use this old/new science as a practice to really activate your new life in 2021. We will live it no matter what so really take the time to see what it is you desire, right now, in this new moment. Write it down if you want but do spend time each day really feeling the excitement of what you want. Not just saying it, imaging it, feeling the joy of it, raising your being and vibe to create that. Simple, easy practice we can all do! Use your image making faculty to create this year.
As Einstien said, Imagination is the brain playing!
Happy New Year to everyone! May purpose, partnership and prosperity come to us all! I love this blessing for it gives us inspiration to cultivate these wonderful things in our life. January is the time of rest, review, reflect, foundational actions for the year to come. The world has slowed down so much already and here we are in more inward stillness of January. This rest, renewal time of year gives us opportunity to create the guide for the rest of our year. I am not talking goals as in actions but ideas of lifestyle for this new cycle in a whole new world. I break it down for myself with this blessing of purpose, partnership and prosperity.
The word purpose seemed to have a heavy connotation to it for most of my life. "What's your purpose?" seemed so big! This important destiny to be something with meaning. Even all the online classes and education are about this big mission you are here to be. It feels heavy, weighted and unenticing to me. Like something I have to do but don't want to. That is my obvious off track training I picked up along the way or was handed from who knows where.
Just being ourselves fully is the simplest purpose that then answers all the other larger ideas beyond that. We all aren't here to do something in the spotlight. Destiny enough to being yourself and quite a high purpose in a world where everyone wants you to be something else! We all adminster, influence, inspire, contribute to the world in so many ways just being oruselves. That is why I like that word purpose as I recreate the meaning to serve me in becoming. My purpose is to be me fully and as that unfolds, the large or small of that mission will come in and be. I don't need to know or try at it. If I enjoy it, it is in line with my purpose. It is me being me in fine form!
My purpose has always been to share and educate self development and healing as I learn it myself. This is my lifestyle and daily life of being Lyn. Ways of health, beauty, green lifestyle, living yoga, and the path to living love. In my myriad of ways through all my careers and associations, it has always had an expansive and curious learning of helping myself and thus others. In the ground work time of this new year cycle, it is good to ask, how are you living your purpose of being you? Easy questions and easy way to tweak and enhance yourself in the coming months.
Parntership is another great action that supports ourselves and others, simaltaneously and gracefully. Partnerships of friends, of business, of networks or hobbies, all enhance our lives, our health and our belongingness. An important part of life is community and feeling you belong. Being in partnerships and groups truly makes life easier, more fun, faster to cocreate ideas with each doing their talented part. Gone are the days of man as an island being powerful because he can do it alone. There is no time for that thinking as it is washing out of the world. There is no reality in it. Partnership and collaboration of synergy and synchronicity can flow easily and commonly. Not on a freak, oh my, can you believe? Coincidence is always around and as we use partnerships, it becomes a mainstay principle operating. For partnerships amp up magnetism. I like that!
Prosperity is a lovely word. Just the sound makes you feel filled with all goodness of things. The word Sri from Indian traditions means all the richness of everything. The filled of all filled. Abundance on all levels, filled cups of anything you desire. So I wish such fullness to us all. It isn't truly about money other than money energy buys us things that create the feeling of fullness. There is so much more that grants us this prosperity. It is a flourishing that keeps growing on all levels. Switching from one to another and back around again. It is an inner security that we create, knowing all is here and only our desires and actions towards it cocreate it. Prosperity is a current. It is a filled up complete overflowing energy field that creates goodness of its own very being. I wish us all this current in living especially at a time where money seems uncertain for many.
RELAX. It is the nature during this time of the season. REFLECT. . Feel full and determine what directions you want to move forward in. Action comes after the vibration, the imagination, the field of possibility is first created within. January is that time of foundation. Capricorn, the great builder of systems is above in the skies. We relax and consider the practical ways to build our foundation for this 2021 after a wild year of events. Catch your breathe. Feel good that you have made it through an unexpected chapter with all of humanity that had no script or certainty. Realize how you have adapted, survived and continue to adjust to a changing world.
Be gentle on yourself and give yourself kudos for making it through. If you had any goodness occur, really savor in what a blessing you recieved and quiet into the fullness and safety of that. It is an innovative time when chaos is about. Innovation, adjustment, smooth gliding comes from the rest period that digests and integrates experiences. So take the time to do these things! It will help you grow forward in a beautiful way despite the outside conditions.
Purpose, partnership and prosperity for all in 2021! Claiming it and calling it in!
Great love to you all!
Good morning my dear friends! It has been quite a year! Filled with a twist on everything, a virus that has taken many and has us masked up and harbored in. There is a challenge on all levels of security, stability and what will happen next. From weather issues, politics, misinformation, just the changing conditions, it takes great intention to shine your light.
With all that said and we are very aware of uncertainty, how do we move forward in light of all this challenge?
I offer some thoughts of how I am finding the mystery of this experience in the most challenging world I have known, to also be filled with beauty and light. Having moved with very little reference to people, places and things that soothe and comfort me, I have had to create new ways to be centered and secure.
Nature is always huge on my list of finding joy in life. Nature feels so alive and you are alive! Reset in feeling that vitality. It is so powerful and it operates all around us in a balanced. harmonious way. If we look too close we may not see the balance and harmony yet it has operated that way long before us and will continue. Recognizing beauty has always been a grounding, settling way to clear and open myself. It creates an expansion within us that is often enough to calm and recalibrate. Beauty soothes and settles our soul, our inner being by just noticing. I am by some pretty big mountains that just hold and ground. It gives me a sense to sit, relax, observe and be still. When there is fog or unclear conditions, it is always wise to sit tight until things clear. Even for 10 minutes, to find calm, expansion and beauty can heal and reset us. We become renewed in bright hope to keep going. We tune into a larger rhythm that somehow inspires a feeling inside that all will be ok. It also restores our power on so many levels, physical, mental and emotional. The seed of life within that is connected to the great all of things gets nourished to continue its growth of knowing aliveness.
Living a connection to some sort of universal good is powerful at this time. We all have a belief in something operating beyond ourselves. Whatever you call that is for you to decide yet it is all the same force in my opinion. I have been around all beliefs and find despite the names or lines or church, they all believe in the power of love. At this time it is hard to see this balance of good occurring. This has happened countless times in our lives. Not all things are considered "good" but in hindsight we saw the wisdom and growth in going through them. There is always a silver lining and a faith in the world being a place of good that holds us through these less fun situations. It is more like faithing. Not blindly believing but putting effort forward in thinking the world is a good place, people have hearts, life balances out and all can be used for uplifting our spirit. Humanity has kept going up to this time so I consider this is our dark to face and as all others, we will get through the other side. Being fueled by love and hope supports taking action in this direction and finding them around you.
Purge the junk and the end of the year will be cathartic. We have had alone time to really think, feel, review, reflect, redirect, see clearly, let go, cast out, move away from and now integrate what we learned. It is clear to see the separation in the world which is separation in ourselves. We are rethinking how we operate on an individual level and now we can take these ideas and express them clearer in the world. I have been challenged by all this.. The slow has me untangling my rapid mind patterns, the coccooning restless at times is evening out. The exhaustion is being freed from my body for it has had time to rest, recoup, regroup and I continue to give myself even more persmission to do it more for myself as needed. I am sinking in to my unique being more than ever before charged by it all. I am not perfect but I am purging those things I deem imperfect and chalking it up to a bad grade. Letting this past blah blah go. Clean out for a new year! Make room for expanded newness of what we want! We care and we care for ourselves and we must be our own best friend and greatest advocate. The shining yellow star in our solar plexus that is protected and strong moves toward the joy and lightness when possible.
Visualizing a better world through out the day. My youthful tribe turned me onto Joe Dispenza. I took his thought along with the eastern tradition to bow 6 times a day and put them together. I have 5, I like to personalize things, alarms on my phone that play magical music at times I deemed mystical. My daughter as well. When they go off, we stop and take a moment to visualize what we desire and feel the joy of it being. 5 magic moments during the day, I break into a expanded vision of my world and the world in anticipation of what is next and it is beautiful. We are also 2 or more gathered and that creates more energy of light. I feel the sacred vibe of life that the holiday represents. I have created a sound, musical habit of using my image making faculty to my greatest advantage. And...... it is bringing spectacular results!
I am not saying it is easy to be bright with so much tradegy around us. I am sharing the age old wisdoms I have learned so we can all find a bit of ease in this wild state of the world. May you enjoy this holiday in the most heart felt, nourishing way that we all need. Lets love ourselves and journey fully! No judgement or criticism, just moving towards the people where that doesn't exist.
Great love To you! Yes you!
Blessings of purpose, partnership and prosperity!
I am a fiery girl and learning to relax my body is a definite practice. As I moved out west, I find I have what they call "the mind of the east coast". We are going, doing, moving, expanding, stretching, on and on with ourselves. We actually burn out more and get knocked down. Then we recoup, reset and begin again. It is how I lived all my life and it felt right. However at this time, my mind pattern keeps going as my body is happy to slow down. This is called out of alignment. I am by no means lazy, I just need to align the mind body a bit better.
Out west they move slower to begin with. I am having a double learning about pace here. Even as I write this, I have a podcast in the background, boiling water for tea and writing. It is an interesting energy to unwind. I do know that not only have I had to face myself and this riled up way and tame it down, but it is wasteful use of my energy. At this covid time, growing wise, less oxygen and moisture in the air out west. I am resetting on huge levels.I have been learning tons of good health information on this break with The Magical Healing Arts podcast as well as study on my own.
I must share an Ayervedic approach to energy that I am revisiting at this time. I would highly recommend this course, Modern Ayerveda with Cate . She reviews energy, the body, eating, the cycles and the rhythm of how we should synchronize with the larger beat of life. It has been awakening deeper in me what I learned from the Himalayan Masters. It is all about energy, especially in covid, so we can be vital to face the issues and stay unaffected by illness while enjoying life.
Investigating myself, my rhythms and weaknesses, based on some of the things she shares, I realize I burn out myself with fiery imbalance, then drop. I recoup, rejuvenate and begin all over again. With less to do in this time, I can see it very clearly as I am in a scurry for no apparent reason. It is just an energy pattern I have used all of my life. It is not balanced or as healthy as it could be for me now. Taking time to watch myself and my cycles, using her wisdom and others, I see how I could be more efficient in moving without all the burn out and excitement. I can still be enthusiastic, but excitement hits the adrenal stress realm. The pattern is clear. With ayervedic using the 3 energies or doshas as a way to notice and realign simply, I am having a great aha moment again about how I move through my day.
We all have patterns of before covid that just don't want to go. Especially if mind created or you are an excitement junkie as I. It is a great opportunity to watch yourself and see how things could work more optimally. For instance, since I like to fire up, and if your nature is one of these three energies, it will go toward the one you most use and unbalance you. That is why they are called doshas, or faults. I will go out of balance by firing up more when I am stressed than slow down. One who is more grounded, needs to move more but in stress they will sit more. We go toward our base line rather than reach for the opposities to balance. That is why this medicine of yoga can only be mastered when we become aware. Living Yoga is all about awareness.
What I have learned about myself is to slowwwwww down. As I feel that revving up, which those who know me, I can spin, I can take a moment and really notice if this needs to be the pace. Do I need to keep going faster and faster. Learning how these energies work throughout any given day, how I am using them and at what times, I begin to find ways to align and balance my enery to optimum. We are all in such stress in many ways so this notice of pace and if it is necessary becomes key to remain centered, clear and able to manage at such a difficult time.
As I notice this intensity, I can slow down myself and my pace to a more Kalpha(earth) pace or a Vata (air) pace. I can stretch, breathe, do tai chi, all things that will slow me down on a physical level and stop the rev up. I could also go for more Vata (air) activity like visioning, opening up to nature, expanding in my thoughts and visions, conversation, hit the etheric realm. Either way, I will slow down my fire, realign my energy and become more relaxed and flowing in enthusiasm than stress or excitement. Simple moments to reset, support you again, recovering your glide and flow which only adds greater health and well being. I also feel better, more energized, more open to continue but with less nervous energy flying.
This is very important to understand so you can make rhythms that support oxytocin and glide versus the adrenal fatigue we all live in. It is just not healthful and causes illness. If you are Kapha, earthy and grounded, you tend to move slower and often your fix will be to get up and do some energetic task, it can be simple but it is movement. That will stop the heavy energy from just sitting. If you are Vata, in too much mental, airy energy, you need to ground by doing something slow and methodical or be really active or attentive in your body so you get out of your mind. It is tricky for when we are stressed, whatever our most common dosha, we will run towards it and imbalance by nature. Awareness Key.
I write this for all to start to really observe this pattern and exhaustion we create on top of regular strife for ourselves so we can start to flow easier in our best way. There are times of day that relate to that as well. From 6 am until 2 pm, we are in Kapha energy, We are reentering our body after sleep so we slowly get moving forward. We use this earth energy to smooth into our body, be on earth and feel the stability of our body. We awaken to the day. They suggest a light breakfast so we don't use big digestive energy until fire, Pitta time. 2-6 pm. Pitta is fire energy, we can digest well, we are expanding all over the place. We eat a good lunch and rest for a few to support our digestion. We also find we get most done during the day as the cycle of life is. From 6-10 pm we are in Vata, air, ether energy. We wind down, eat a light dinner, settle from our day as we get ourselves ready to rest for the night. The afternoon bodes well for connection, emaling, mental work, communication.
Very important understanding I believe to support us to ride our best cycle. It is a challenge for most to have a big dinner or lunch as we call it, in midday how they did it in the old days. No need to eat alot before bed and when we are busy working, we need the nutrition. Our body also aligned with that cycle of fire so a good time to digest. Many have digestive issues and perhaps trying to eat differently would help. The energy of evening support light digestion, keep this in mind. We all have different cycles that will work with life.
I have had a great renewed energy and awareness from this class. In the past week. It is amazing how aligning with the energy cycles of the day, noticing my own and regrouping, I have a ton more energy in a relaxed way. Alert, ready to go but steady and not anxious or nervous energy as I could usually get going in a day. Has been so transforming and simple, I had to share some ideas so you too can realign better with your best energy.

I imagine all of you, like me are a bit creeped out on all this sanitizer stuff! A few weeks ago there was news on certain brands having carcinogens in them! Everywhere you go are all types of hand sanitizer! Even health places and restaurants I go to for farm to table or organic healing, the smell of bleach is in the air. This is not so healthy for our systems to be in this "kill" environment. We have on masks that suck in the CO2 we are exhaling. We need to adapt to this new "sanitized" world with some health strategies! Although it is all about health, these conditions may not benefit our health on all levels! Let us be aware creating true health for ourselves.
1. Engage in Nature! Detox Your Body Effortlessly.
I have always been a proponet of going in nature and just being, connecting, breathing. It is most important these days to get that fresh oxygen from the trees! We have air quality issues, viruses, chemicals and masks now suffocating us in many ways. Invite in the true healers of rich oxygen from nature, the expanded mind and emotional space of the outdoor world and the break from all the electrical field of the indoors! We need this even more than usual. Clear and clean your nature body with the outdoor negative ions and oxygen! Being closed in our indoor environments is not physically healthy!
2. Create or find your own sanitizer rather than using public ones for as safety!
Thieves essental oil and others are disinfectants. You can create your own spray bottle. Tea Tree oil is another good one that kills well and these are safer than the chemical versions! Many woman sell essential oils so ask them what you need! This is a powerful, easy solution. Your body is not overloaded by essential oils! Plant medicine is easily recognized by your cells.
3. Learn of Hypochlorous Acid!
One of the most powerful things in this moment is the Hypochlorous Acid, electric salt water, 2.5 ph Acid water from my Kangen Ionizer! It is the Top Sanitizer at this time. Used in many hospitals, retirement homes and businesses as a better solution to bleach. Quicker, cleaner, easily created as you need to keep the most deadly germs and viruses at bay. I love this! Kick the toxic cleaners out the door and still be using the most effective sanitation there is! A worthy investment for future health is to learn of the amazing power of water! Many businesses find this to be the only reason to have one. I am not liking the bleach everywhere after every client! The employees also getting effected by this practice of health! There are healthier solutions available to us!
4. Drink plenty of water! We all overlook this simple solution!
In Chinese Medicine this is the season of thick mucus! As seasons change, the opening for respiratory illness is naturally hieghtened! Hydration supports the body in the most basic and simple way especially if the fluids get slowed from the season change! Drinking good water has the most power to support us. Clearing the body of toxins on all levels simply and naturally. Our bodies designed to operate in the flow with proper hydration! This is the quickest way to alkalize the body! I have learned so much about water and what we ingest is scary. Lets get educated and hydrate ourselves the best possible way we can. My daughter has a water seminar this week to educate.
5. Move more to clear things through your body!
The lymphatic system clears when we move our body. It has no pump like the heart yet moves most of the liquid in our body! It moves the toxins the cells release about and out of our body, our cleansing system. Movement supports it most. I know I have been less active in this covid time. As we enter winters rest, create an easy movement practice for a few minutes here and there with the thought of supporting the lymphatic system. Nothing big is necessary. Swirling your arms as many lymphnodes there and in the chest and belly, reaching high and low, dancing about. Do this a few times a day. The Tai Chi health I taught was a perfect reset throughout the day. A simple qigong or yoga move with the intention of moving your liquids is perfect. Do an easy practice a few times a day of a simple move.
6. Eat hearty, healthy, colorful, varied vegetables!
Eat organic, hearty roots as they are harvested this time of year. Soups, stews and warmth. Alkalized foods are helpful to fight off illness. Alkalinity key to a dis ease free body! Your food and water the most powerful ways to build healthy cells, body and immunity to all things.
7. Slow down!
We have been slowed down and although my mind fights this less activity, my body adores it. We get this great opportunity to move slower, decide what is good for us, reflect and clear the crap out as the fall season shows us. Let go of quick rhythms that exhaust. Harry carry not a good energy flow all the time. Find peace with this flow on all levels. I know mentally I get challenged but it is a better pace for me! I like fast and fiery but it is not healthy especially for woman. A more syncopated pace with ebb and flow is how we are all designed. Nothing is awake and moving 24/7. Find a new rhythm to feel good at. Balanced with rest, fun, work, family, alone time and service!
These are my health strategies during this next season and scenario in our world. I am not so sure this or any virus will ever leave as the flu is always about. With Increased sanitation and mask wearing part of our new world, let us keep clear on how to support health with these strategies wisely. Clean your masks often! Another issue that we all fall short on! That homemade sanitzer can spritz it up in a pinch! Stay healthy friends! This the biggest issue in our world today!
My COVID journey has been one of celebrating myself. I have found I can actually give myself persmission to move slow, take my time, be somewhat restful and celebrate the things I like about myself. It seems whatever baggage, sadness, old stories and beliefs we have can be let go once and for all! This more solitude time has unraveled many stories for the good.
I find myself each new moon, writing what I desire to create and it is getting simpler all the time. Fun. Lightness. Sustainability. Health. Education, Community of likeminded folks. Seems to boil down to the same things I have always been creating in a complicated world. The causes, products and ways shift but the same message comes forward. To Celebrate Ourselves! To know and enjoy our unique wonder. To care and nourish ourselves to be our best. Permission to be the authentic one that is ourselves. And this COVID unfolding yet another form of me.
The ambitious, push, pressure, shoulds, coulds are just leaving my energy these days. These pressures don’t support moving forward at all in this time. It is more nourishing, honoring and slow energy that couldn’t delight me more! I am releasing a lot of the ideas society has taught me. Maybe they worked before but not now. I don’t want to live that way or believe life has to be a struggle of hard work. I give myself permission to create in a light, fun, easy, graceful way in this new land. I know few but I can determine how and where this will go by my action and energy use. Truly determining where my energy is used, renewed, rejuvenated and flowing full.
It has taken me most of the time to get to this conclusion. I believed I wanted to create in fun yet I had so many ideas against that. Unaligned in my energy. Wanting to enjoy, be playful and create yet watching all my old beliefs sabotage me. I am clear now. We can have fun or not have fun. We can be joyful or stressed. Having taken care of myself, rested, listened and allowed renewal, I am clearing this old paradigm of life is hard. I create forward in joy of life even more than before.
I hope you too have come to this conclusion. Judgement needs to loosen on ourselves and others. We have had ample time to review what we are doing, resist not doing, watch ourselves battle this inside and deny the mental junk. We can listen to our body, emotions, mind too but in a greater way of synchronicity. Letting go of what life was to be, is and will be. It is all up in the air. We have this open moment to create it as we want and see if it sticks. So far, I am much more joyful and open to a surrendering to this new world with my ideas clear as to how to move in it.
I give myself persmission to celebrate me as I am. I inspire others to celebrate themselves as well. This inward movement truly about this and embodying in a new way. Getting out of our head and putting into action those things that thrive us and being proud of it. No more following the rules or census! I am my own independent survey on what works for me. It is a heavy world so we do need many embracing this celebratory way of living and honoring themselves and others.
Most still may find this to be trite or unnecessary. I believe it is the way of the future and will forge ahead in this celebration of me! It is simply a permission we give ourselves and others. We all get to do it our own way. We are creating anew together. Let’s support fun, alignment, health, compassion and individuality!
Celebrate yourself with nourishing! Wahoo!
