Finding Peace and Alone Time

“Anything that costs you your peace is too expensive. Learn to let go.” For me, surrendering to find peace means to breathe through the unknown, the uncertainty.  It means being ok with no plans. It’s being at ease with not knowing what’s next. The kind of breathing required for surrender is beyond the shallow depths of the ‘norm’, it’s stopping, sitting and slowing right down so you can be conscious of your own being: Where you are, What you can see, Feel, Touch, Hear. Deepening your breath, you open and expand through your heart chakra, you expand your belly making it protrude and full, and it’s breathing out with a sigh. For me to be at the core of peace (via surrendering)… I need alone time to renew this way of being. I can only maintain this peace through the chaos of ‘normal’ life for so long. I am always required to return to myself in order to find harmony and through that, the ability to hear my true voice (the rational voice, not the …

Do You Struggle to Stay on Track?

  Do you need a little girl power?  A little inspiration to get you moving?  Keep you moving?  Or, do you need someone who is cooking a deliciously nutritious meal to post a picture so at that very moment, you decide that you might hit the kitchen and reach for the fresh ingredients instead of ordering pizza?

Does your mind get along with your body?

I’ll start by saying this… I’ve (my mind) been quite the bitch to my body over the years. Do you get along with your body? Does your body get along with your mind? In other words, do you have a healthy relationship with yourself? Do you put yourself down? Do you wish you were different? Do you ever look in the mirror with disgust? Do you ever hate your reflection? Do you feel pain within? Have you ever felt disconnected and not at ease? Not balanced? Not happy with yourself? I could answer yes to each and every question above. I HAVE answered yes to each and every question above (in the past)! Last year, during what I call my ‘bad year’, which was post treatment, I became incredibly unbalanced and disconnected from myself. I was confused, I was suffering from post-traumatic distress and I had truly lost myself, and everything I once believed in, actually, I didn’t know what I believed in, I was in a vortex that made me feel like I no …
