Presence & Perspective

I use to live a busy life. My type A personality would zoom around from thing to thing, check box to check box, and rush through everything to get it all done by the end of the day. I use to drive fast and speed and swerve when cars were going too slow. I use walk fast and rush, afraid I would not get to my destination on time. I use to be use busy wondering what was next, that I would often miss what was now. Its funny what the mind does when you focus on the future and forget about the moment that is now.That was then this is now.

What is it about life that causes us to rush through everything and always be onto the next thing? Human nature I suppose. The business only keeps us doing what’s next, or stressing that perhaps we may miss something in the process. There is a simplistic art in learning to slow down. Beyond that, I’ve noticed you are able to appreciate a lot more. Maybe a car ride does take longer, and maybe you are a few minutes late to work than normal…. so what? The day will still go on, your work will still be there, and I bet no one even noticed. Why not slow down, catch a breathe, view the window, take in the scene, and turn up the music? If you are inspired, how about sing? Enjoy the moment for what it is. You may be surprised what you see along the way. Shifting gears, taking moments to live eyes wide open can lead you to see so much more. What once seemed every day normal, may begin to feel every day new, or better, make a better story and moment for your day.

I was taking a stroll along the beach, like I do multiple times throughout my week, and in my life. For the first time ever at this particular beach I was at, I saw whales breech out of the water. They were quite active and stuck around on top of the water for a while. I stood still, planted my feet into the ground, and took a moment. I stopped. I saw. I enjoyed. I saw. I witnessed. Then I noticed many others walking straight, down the shoreline, on the sand, with no ability to turn their neck or dare to gaze beyond what was in front of them. It was an interesting moment. Here I was, doing my yoga dance on the sand, smiling, and watching the whales, and no one else seemed to care or notice. It blew my mind. There are always new things to see when you can change your perspective, and dare to move beyond where you think you are going.

Has society really become so linear that all you see is forward? Being present is a gift. A way to explore more, to see more, and to enjoy every moment possible we have in this short life. Take a drive and dare to turn your head and see… find movement towards freedom and get out of the straight line destination you think you need to be on. Take a walk, look around, and see the world for what it really is —> a beautiful place with many moments to soak up and enjoy, if you can move around, shake your head, get a little loose, and see it.

Be Free.

befree

“It’s the pure exploration of living that allows us to expand & navigate toward higher mountains. It’s listening to the soul within your own self that guides you, to tred on, never stop learning, be open to giving, & lead yourself on the highest path to Freedom. Be Free. Pause to breathe. Take life In. Wander Often. Live Better…. Open your eyes & heart to more…” [Kali Bliss]

I’ve taken some time to myself recently. After the hectic Uranus/Square and Karma circumstances life dealt me, I needed a fresh breathe of relaxation and jet setting. I’m enjoying the sweet nuances of life, and the endless beauty that can be seen every day if you take a moment to pause and recognize it. Life is beautiful. Your freedom comes from recognizing it and letting yourself flow towards things and people that you gravitate toward. Soul connections can always be found, and friends, family, relationships, and more help you grow better so you can follow your spirit within. Be free to Wander. Give thanks for every person you engage with. Trust your own journey into Spirit, beyond that, into your own Self. Freedom comes from trusting your heart, and listening to the wisdom and desires within.

Contemplation

What if….. you fill in the blank……

When was the last time you imagined a new possibility or a new opportunity to surface so you could grow? I feel as if many get stuck and rooted in what we know to be true, that we forget to develop something better. Why do we hang on? And if we are hanging on, what is it in us that compels us to stay in us? Change is something i never understood. Good? Bad? is it inevitable is it a sign? I have no fucking clue 😉 As much as many of us do change, what keeps us with and in touch with those old friends and people that touched us? And if we separate. what caused that to happen?

I’ve personally lost touch with many fine individuals of my past. It was not purposeful, it was not out of hate, it simply happened. I truly do hope I can resurrect friendships from the past, touch bas,e and learn what they are doing. But if its not mean to be, why bother? To me, it is such an interesting subject. When it comes to relationships and life… what do we keep and what is worth holding onto and staying in contact with?

The basis of myself is to love others, enjoy company of good people, and cherish friendships that help you. To me, it’s that simple. When people part ways and leave you behind, what is meant to be interpreted? Well, you let them go on their way, and personally, I hope they remember me 😉 Life is funny in that we are taught when we are young that friends are meant to be forever and life as it happens, you keep those connections alive. I dont think thats real. You grow, you change, and if the connection is mutual on both ends, it remains… if it’s not special to a certain side, then it’s released, sadly. That person that was once your bestie, may be better off now. Thats fine. Perhaps you never speak to them again. God, are we really so inhuman that we can detach that easily? It’s a lesson I’m still striving to learn.

To everyone I’ve met, the friends I’ve had, or anyone who has crossed my personal path. I thank you. I always do, it’s in my nature. Wherever you have gone, or been, I hope you know I still love you and I deeply thank you 🙂

Choose Love.

unconditionalloveAmericans are funny, in that most consider Christmas & the holiday season to be based around Santa, getting, giving, and presents or parties. While that is a nice thing to celebrate at the end of the year, December is really about reflecting and allowing yourself to slow down, wind down, and pave a new way for the Winter season & upcoming new year. December, to be, is a celebration of Love, of light, and a peaceful ending to whatever has been.

The holidays stress us all out and create disharmony. That’s normal. Choose love this year. If you are single, without your family, or busy working during the season, reconnect to your faith and cherish yourself for who you have become. This is the season of Love and when it is important to also do a cheers for you, what you have accomplished, and who you have become. It’s not about being accepted, having the decorations, or even having a partner to kiss under the mistletoe… those all come in time.

The end of the year is a deep period of transition. Your body is probably feeling it, perhaps you are even feeling the urge to stay in, be within yourself, or seek out some quiet time. That’s because Winter is coming and it’s the season to hibernate and relax. Choose you this Christmas, and choose Love. Everyone is having moments, emotions, frustrations, sadness, and what I call ‘episodes’. Let them be, let it be. Come back to your love, your heart, and fill yourself with gratitude for wherever you are at. Be happy for what you DO have. Be grateful for friends you have met this year, people who have helped you, old friendships, and be good around your family. 

Choose love in everyone who crosses your path, with whatever the Universe yields you, and whoever comes your way. There will be much expected surprises the next two weeks. Choose love always.

When you love yourself, you know yourself, and you know your intention, who you are, and what you stand for. People can think otherwise, as they choose. I’ve let go of people, I’ve had friends move away, and in this year, I celebrate ME this December. I’ve learned that the world will never be perfect. It’s human nature to serve your ego, until you do the work to stop it. Even Yogis, claiming to be all Zen have their moments, and just because they ‘teach’ does not always mean they care or are consciously connected to the light in the heart always. We all fall out of balance and alignment, it’s part of being human. We all forget that Love is always the answer. Come back to your heart this Christmas/Holiday, and serve you. Share love with others, remind them, and help people remember Love is all we all are looking for. End this year well, with love. Say sorry to those you hurt, make up with people who have parted, acknowledge souls that have brought kindness to your life, and do something fun for You. Remember your greatness, share a smile, and do something nice for a special friend. Love is all you need ❤

Stay Slim & Jolly with the Holiday Season Cheer

  • Hydrate your body first thing in the morning – chug. H2O is the best resource to reset metabolism, flush toxins, & cure headaches [from perhaps too much bubbly].
  • Add lemons to water & beverages. Enjoy hot lemon tea in the morning to clear your digestive track
  • Minimize your water intake while eating meals, this can affect how your body absorbs food
  • Drink your water or sparkling water in your wine glass – your head will thank you.
  • Avoid snacking. Once you start it is often harder to stop, so don’t start at all 😉 Save your appetite for the real meal. Your body does not need those extra loose calories (have water or tea instead)
  • Check in with yourself. Most weight gain is due to emotional eating/drinking. Be conscious when you are reaching for that extra helping or desert. Triggers often cause us to drink more, pay attention less, & eat our way through what is really going on.
  • Watch your digestion, how your body is eliminating. All the processed foods & sugar can cause our body freak out. Make sure your food is being digested & moving through you easily.
  • Consider a Juice cleanse (see below)/ Day off eating: Fasting/ light eating helps your body rest & process the junk we put into it.
  • Keep your body & breathe moving. Sweat! Balance the coldness with more heat. Take a walk after a meal, run, practice yoga, etc

Being Non-Reactive

 peaceBe the Bright Light this Holiday Season that Stays Calm & Collected.

I took a special Yoga class last week with on of my best mentors & most inspiring people ever (thanks Chelsea!) and she spoke about being non-reactive. She shared a story and talked about how important it is to detach from other peoples crazy emotional outbreaks in order to remain more calm when any given situation occurs. That theme stuck with me throughout her classes and unique transitions, and as I did my best to keep my breath moving even with the challenges and holds. It continued throughout my day and to my surprise I was well aware at how reactive I get. At this point in my life I consider myself a pretty peaceful person. I have Yoga to thank and life experience which has taught to me to relax, slow down, and accept the beauty of living in the present moment. It’s amazing how much energy I unconsciously give up throughout my day. For example, when I was driving home I got put in some traffic at about 230pm in the afternoon. I immediately reacted (to myself in the car) and got annoyed, etc. My teachers voice popped into my head and I had to remember to embrace the moment because I can’t change the traffic. Instead of reacting and getting myself into an angry, frustrated, WTF is wrong with San Diego type of mood, I needed to settle. I put on some good music and began to embrace the moment of slowness, recognizing a little bit of traffic was not going to fully ruin the moment or the rest of my day, and that it would be totally useless to emotionally get aggravated for that short period.

The holidays are here. Yay! And Nay! For some of us, deepending on our family dynamic and more. As we are around family, friends, people we like and people we prefer to never see again, it is important to stand your ground and stay in a place of peace and acceptance. When you become reactive you give your energy away. You will notice when you are around a lot of angry people they often take your good energy from you and then your become angry as well. Or if something happens, and for example, you sister gets really upset about it and starts to cry and get emotional, that often will trigger others to adapt some form of emotion too. This may be grief shown with sympathy, maybe anger thinking your sister is stupid for crying, etc. Emotions are powerful things! You do not need to pick up any extra emotional baggage or wounds form others this time of year. Family can bring out the best and worst of us all. It’s important to lay your ground and stay present and peaceful with whatever stuff happens. That way you can enjoy the season, even with the business and family drama 😉 peace

Tips to stay Non-Reactive at Holiday Time:

– Take deep centering breathes

When things happen, someone gets upset, etc, come back to you. Close your eyes, take some breathes, recenter yourself so other people’s shit is not causing you to react or attrain to the emotion they are experiencing. You will get triggered, relax, breathe, then speak and more forward as you need

Get outside! Take Walks, get into Nature, get away from the House

Lots of people is lots of energy. Add in parties, stress of cooking, decorating, entertaining, etc – it is a lot to handle. Take a walk when you feel overwhelmed, get away from the group/family, soak up some sun, snow, & let nature help calm you. You will be surprised at how liberating it can be!

– Keep a positive story in your head about You

Family triggers us all in different ways. You can love your family and not be best buddies with them. I am the outcast of my family and frequently laugh at how out of place I fit into the group (especially with my green drinks). Keep yourself happy and entertained by remembering who you are, what you stand for, and the good qualities you have. You family may not agree, or support, & that’s okay. You can have other reasons to love them or at lease show presence in the season.

– Smile

When things happen smile. If someone acts out of place, says something mean, tells you something that does not suit you, SMILE. Compassion is the best gift everyone can give. To me, a smile is a way to bring neutrality to any situation, give lightness, and a sense of warmth.

– Practice thinking, feeling, then speaking

We all act different around family. Often our walls are down, we treat our family different than we would treat a stranger, coworker, etc. Everyone is accountable when they are reactive. When you know that person is going to piss you off this holiday season or make you feel bad – practice pausing. Let things digest, let yourself process them, then decide if its something worth getting emotionally triggered by. Often when you pause you can notice it’s never about you, always about the other person and their shit. Thus, when that brother you don’t vibe well with says something that usually you want to lash back at, maybe this year you can be more peaceful, calm, collected, and smile and not respond or give a mere ‘thanks’ and let the words wash away…

Do the most you can to exercise, move you body, and venture away from the people so you can stay calm & collected. I listen to music often, grab my headphones, or find an empty room, lock it, and enjoy the stillness for a few moments.
