12 Days of Slow Living

This month I participated in the #12daysofslowliving Challenge on Instagram with Beth Kirby. Now, slow living is not something I practice. Moving at a slow pace does not come easy for me. It never has. Some health issues the last year and this fall has told me that I have to start. This challenge came at the perfect time. Normally I do not participate in social media challenges. I like to offer them, especially 28 days of yoga for $28 or to get my shy clients out of their comfort zones. The Grind and Shine Yoga Challenge is to practice yoga everyday for 28 days.

If any type of challenge is offered to me, it needs to be something I really need to incorporate in my life.

Slow Living and lots of yoga.

Last year, my body was giving me the signs. The signs to slow down. This year, my body was screaming at me. October is a “productive” month for me. Workshops, back to school, sports, and this year SUKHA hosted the first yoga retreat. It was non-stop. After the retreat, I was not myself. Everything was a blur. My lungs, my brain, my gut. Physically and mentally foggy.

Once again, thank you to Maryjo Kurtz at Wellnecessity for all of her services and guidance to getting me back to the healthy me. I try to see Maryjo as much as I can and I highly suggest you do the same!

Slowing down is something I must do but I feel as if when I do, important things may slip through the cracks. This challenge so far, has encouraged me to do a few little things in my daily routine. Self care has always been part of my life it is routine, but slowing down and embracing the time is not. Now don’t get me wrong, I do not rush through life, or am I always in a “rush” , or “can’t get my shit together”. I am very balanced but I rarely take the time to sit back and appreciate drinking cup of tea or be aware of how blessed I am to have nature’s gifts to heal my body.

My children will always come first and I am so fortunate that I have the flexibility to attend games, cook them dinner and be there for them whenever they need me.

When my body gives me the signs to slow down, I never can understand how I am supposed to slow down when I have so many big responsibilities. I am one person doing so much. No wonder one of my Spirit Animals is the Octopus. Speaking of the Octopus; I decided it was time to have a logo for my personal brand. I have had these visions of part octopus, with some SUKHA branding incorporated but never thought I would be able to find someone who understands my thinking. Well, I did. This is the power of Instagram. All the way from Denmark I found a talented, creative, patient, responsible, professional, beautiful Graphic Designer who understood what I was looking for and created my logo. Thank you Anamarija Designs

How can I possibly slow down? This mind never stops.

This challenge has showed me to take the time, notice and appreciate the time I spend slowing down.

Here’s a recap of the first 8 days

Day One/Meditate

Day Two/Move

Day Three/Hydrate

Day Four/Nature

Day Five/Nourish

Day Six/Glow

Day Seven/Create

Day Eight/Relax

Day Nine/Indulge

Everything I have done so far with only a few days left is posted on Instagram @mbwishes and Facebook @myblogsaboutlife

Today is Day Nine/INDULGE and I did exactly what my body was calling for. “Do something luxurious for yourself”

Most people automatically think of indulging as eating a burger, fries or candy. Today I needed to relax my muscles .after a week of teaching and practicing in a Infrared Sauna at Current Recovery & Performance new location on Brick Blvd. I was honored to have a tour of the new, spacious and clean facility yesterday and went back this morning after my class for a 35 minute session in the sauna. The staff is friendly, kind, and extremely knowledgeable.

Current Recovery offers TPI Golf Screening, Cupping, Cryotherapy, Spot Cryo, Normatec and ARRC Therapies. Now Michael explained these to me yesterday in detail but my brain could not soak all of the amazing information in one sitting. But stay tuned. I will go back and bring my son. Current is not only for people with injuries. These services are perfect to prevent injuries.

Day Nine of Slow Living was worth writing about. I feel amazing, my skin looks even better and I took 40 minutes of my morning to detox, relax and move slowly.

Now, back to my normal routine of working, cooking, cleaning, laundry, wrapping and getting ready for Christmas. I am now able to actually hydrate SLOWLY and embrace every sip. Thank you Beth!

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!!

Don’t forget to take time to S L O W D O W N

Many thanks again to Beth Kirby, Maryjo, Current Recovery and Anamarija!!

“If you always do what you’ve always done, You’ll always get what You’ve got”-Henry Ford

There are so many meanings of this and so many ways of interpretation. Today, it is being in tune with your body, listening to it, and doing something about it.

Last October, just like this October was super busy for me. Always on the go and never taking the time to sit back, say no, take a scan of myself and find stillness.. Almost exactly a year ago, I had that scare. The shooting pain in my left shoulder and racing heart. No fucking way was I having a heart attack. But then again; it’s possible. My grandfather died of a heart attack at 42.

I stayed up all night refusing to fall asleep. The last thing I wanted was to die in my sleep and have my kids find me. The next morning I dropped the kids at school and drove myself to the ER. They hooked me up ASAP!! Heart was good. The lungs not so good. They told me my pleura was inflamed and I probably had pneumonia and did not know it. Of course the scripts were thrown at me like the local high school football players and cheerleaders throw candy off the fire truck during the Thanksgiving Parade. I took them for a few days until I switched to Oregano Oil in a capsule and it worked!!!

Fast forward. Here I am again,almost exactly one year ago with the same pain, but so much worse. Is it seasonal? Stress? Or the constant going, going, going and not stopping? Who knows.What I do know is that I need to find stillness more often, say no and slow down. I have been non-stop for years. Survival mode. Going and going and always feeling great. But was I really? Maybe I was and once menopause kicked in things started to change.

As we get older, everything changes. Our hormones, our gut, our heart, our liver, our skin and pretty much almost everything. It’s not fun but it doesn’t have to be that way and keep in mind it all starts with food. Food is the foundation to our health and well being.

This year I have learned so much from such amazing, intelligent women who have guided me through gut and hormone health, liver and lung health and so much more. Attending convention was eye opening and having many conversations with Kim Traverso and of course my many visits and talks with Mary Jo Kurtz.

Mary Jo wears many hats and brings many tools in her tool box as a health and wellness coach. She has spent the last 25 years studying, exploring and educating herself and all those she comes in contact with about the endless possibilities for healing on all levels. Her approach to healing embodies the true meaning of mind, body and spirit connection. She is a Nutrition and Holistic Health Coach, a Reiki Master Teacher, an Integrative Energy Therapist, a Spiritual Counselor and Ordained Minister Practitioner who uses a myriad of holistic tools to help her clients.  On any given day Mary Jo may talk to you about Traditional Chinese Medicine, your blood type, genetics, food, fears, emotions, your chakras, toxins, your energy field or anything else. She will bring it all together to help guide you to what might be going on with you and help you choose a direction for true healing.

My last visit with Mary Jo was eye opening, relaxing and rejuvenating. As always we started with a “Touch of Heaven.” This therapy is my favorite!! Well, one of many. This therapy helps to promote healing deep within the body. Touch of Heaven is exactly that even though I don’t know what heaven is like but if I had to describe one of the feelings that I think heaven is like, this would be it.

While laying on her heated crystal far-infrared biomat Mary Jo first checked, opened and balanced all of my chakras. She then checks which essential oils my body needs before placing them along the spine and on my feet. The essential oils speak with the cells, release and restore balance and harmony. Who doesn’t need that??? If I could go once a week, I would.

Now I have done this therapy many, many times. This visit was different.

I had called Mary Jo a few days before my visit because I was not feeling good at all. I couldn't pinpoint it, but I was off. I had belly bloat, my back was bugging me, I had no coloring in my face, my eyes seemed pale as well if that is even such a thing. Emotionally, I was just off. I felt like a chilly, fall, rainy morning with a thick fog hovering over the Glimmerglass Bridge unable to see through it at any time during the day. It needed to be lifted so I can parent and teach. I needed my energy. I was craving health but I could not understand why. Gluten was removed from my diet, I hardly eat meat or dairy. I juice. Hell, I just had come back from a yoga retreat and we ate healthy.

Mary Jo added a new therapy that I find absolutely fascinating. After “Touch of Heaven” Mary Jo began to a Bio-Energy Evaluation which helps to evaluate the bio-energy field to see what might be the cause of my energy blocks - probably at the root of what’s going on with my body. In doing this she uses a combination of Direct Resonance Testing, Muscle Testing and Autonomic Response Testing. She uses the energetic frequencies of types of stressors like heavy metals and various microbial toxins like fungus, virus, bacteria, and more as well as the frequencies of things like homeopathics, vitamins, minerals and other supplements. The substances are introduced into the bio-energy-field with the help of specialized devices called Signal Enhancers. In the end Mary Jo uses a combination of all the information she gathers from the energy field to help to come up with a plan for the most effective changes that anyone can make with regard to their diet, supplements, lifestyle, thoughts, emotions and beliefs in order to make changes necessary for a more balanced and healthier life.

And then as if that were not enough! It was time for the finishing touches with a new addition to Mary Jo’s services: Infrared Sauna time!!! OMG, was it hot. But a relaxing, hot. Twenty minutes of detoxification that you don’t get in a gym or a hot yoga studio.

Infrared saunas can help increase blood circulation and release built up toxins in the body. This sweatbox helps to support the immune system, great for aches and pains, stress reliever and fatigue.

The last 5 minutes, I wanted out but I knew I needed to complete this detox so I could feel alive again.

Time was up and I was out!!! I felt slightly dizzy, but light. My skin coloring returned and the fog was lifted. Floating in heaven and sweating in a box of relaxation for detoxification. I am on my way.

And now for the conversation….

After this Mary Jo and I sat down to talk about some of the things for me to consider going forward. We talked about why food is the foundation for healing and how there is no one diet that will work for everyone. We talked about how I might be missing some important nutrients in my diet and how I could get them as well as some thing that I was eating that weren’t the best for me. We also talked about the importance of drainage in the body and how my elimination systems could be improved and organs like my liver, kidneys and my lymphatic system could be supported to work better. We discussed other toxins like viruses and infections that could be in my energy field and the importance of helping my body and immune system better maintain balance so I could feel well again.

After my evaluation we discussed what my body needed to heal. The list was long. The list included Coffee Enema!!! Yep. Coffee Enema. Now, I gave up coffee once again after I wasn’t feeling well. So I am no longer drinking it, I am now inserting it. Not for weight loss but for detoxification of the body. Coffee enemas have been around since World War 1.

After the war, intrigued by nurses experience, two German professors investigated the effects. They found that the caffeine entered the liver via the portal system and caused an increased flow of bile. This bile, in turn, allowed accumulated poisons and toxins to be released and evacuated from the body. Years later, realizing the importance of detoxification, Dr. Gerson incorporated coffee enemas in his therapy.

Now, after reading about this, I had to start. I wanted to feel better and start removing toxins from my body.

I ordered the Coffee Enema Kit from Purelife. Purelife’s coffee is air roasted and not drum roasted. Drum roasting by fire can leave a toxic residue on the bean. Their unique “Air Roast” method eliminates any chance of this happening. Clean beans are VERY important since it is going into your liver.

Day One was slightly messy. Trying to get comfortable on a tiny bathroom floor, having the enema tube pretty much flying all over the place. It was a battle for sure.

After ten minutes it was time. I was done.

Twenty minutes later, I felt awesome. I was shocked. My skin color was amazing, belly bloat was gone and I was full of energy.

I sent Maryjo a message thanking her. She advised me to continue for a few more days.

Holy Crap!!! Ha ha. A few more days??

Okay. I finally had it down. In the tub I go. More space and the tub ledge is exactly the height the enema bucket needs to be. Here’s the challenge. Holding the coffee in for 15 minutes!!! Listening  to my favorite podcasts makes the time go by as I try to make the best of my morning coffee.

As I am writing this I am laughing my “ass” off that I am actually writing about this. But I have to. Toxins must be removed from our bodies and I must share with all of you so you can hopefully do the same. There are toxins everywhere my friends. In our food, household products, skin care, and of course the environment. There are so many illnesses out there and most are caused by food and toxins. Who wants to live a long, healthy life? I know I do.

Some of you may ask why can’t we just drink our coffee? So here’s the deal: “Coffee taken orally goes through the stomach causing digestive problems and affects the liver by shutting off the bile ducts.  It also raises blood pressure and tends to cause capillary spasms in the extremities.” -Dr. Gerson

There is so much to write about this, but I will let you do your homework.

I am feeling so much better than I did. Currently still working on the inflammation of the lung lining, learning, practicing, sharing and teaching. Everyday.

Thank you Maryjo for everything!!

I have added the link to the coffee enema kit as well via Amazon.

Here’s to a Happy and Healthy New Year. Why wait? Start NOW. No more excuses.

Countdown to 50.

I know this may sound strange since I have 1,026 days left until I turn 50, but I felt the need to write about where I am and where I’ve been and wondering where will I be on the day I turn 50. What will my life be like?

I am not sure what encouraged me to write this. Maybe it was how good it made me feel to get carded in Salt Lake City last weekend, or thinking about how lucky our children are to have so many tools to live a long, healthy life. Whatever it is, here it is…

This blog is not about looking into a crystal ball. It is a challenge. A challenge, a blog and a picture I would like to look back on in 2021 when the big 50 approaches to see how far I have come since 2018 and I encourage all of you to do the same no matter what age.

To date, I have been through a lot just like all of you. Maybe not everything, but we have all been through “stuff”. The good, the bad and the ugly.

I am a child of divorce and a daughter of an alcoholic. We grew up in bad times and good. We lived on food stamps for a short period of time living in a not so great town. My mother was strong and worked hard. My dad had a disease, struggled and lost everything. We were fortunate enough to get out of a horrible town and live where we were meant to be.

My mother worked hard. We went to private school and college. We worked and worked hard. My sister on Wall Street, my brother with a large Pharm Company and me in NYC. As I am writing this, I stopped. WOW!! Not so bad. Three kids coming from a broken home and a father with a terrible disease. We are products of divorce!! Thanks mom!! You did good. It wasn’t easy and neither was I. Thank you. We are all where we are meant to be because of you. There are days where you may feel under appreciated, but guess what? Being a mom is the most UNDERAPPRECIATED job in the world.

I feel the need to also express gratitude to my father for the experience of being a child of an alcoholic so I can share and teach. My father has been gone four years now this month. We have had a few conversations since and I am so thankful for them. It has been healing.

We are far from perfect and each of us has our crap to deal with; but I am proud. Proud of my mom and my siblings. Thank you!

Lesson: Never judge children of a broken family.

Fortunately and unfortunately, my children are children of divorce. They are amazing and I am blessed. Woody and I co-parent well and I am thankful for that. Honors, athlete, no booze or drugs, fun, healthy and happy. And they to are not perfect. No one is. They are driven and have goals and my wish is that they never loose sight.

I have seen divorce, pain, homelessness, addiction, physical, emotional, and mental abuse. I have seen poverty in India as I inspected diamonds. I have driven old cars and new. Fancy and not so fancy. I am blessed now to be doing what I am doing. On the mat and off. Hopefully inspiring, motivating and helping people as best I can because helping others is the way we help ourselves and it feels really good.

I was never a good student. I struggled in school. It never came easy to me and I am not embarrassed to say that I was not “book smart”. I am street smart. Situational awareness and the center of my own knowledge based on MY experiences, not someone else’s. I have learned how to trust my own judgement and fend for myself. The past, present and future and I encourage everyone to try to do the same. Let’s teach our kids how to be street smart.

To date, I have visited many places and this will not stop unless I am physically unable. The beauty and slums of India, the towers and art of Paris, blue waters of Turks and Caicos, green hills, and yummy Guinness of Ireland, the changing of guards and breathtaking countrysides of England, many Caribbean Islands, cruised and boozed, paddled Rincon and sunbathed topless in St. Martin. I have 18 states left to see and many countries and Islands on the list. Travel if you can. Save those quarters. Don’t waste the money at the bar when you can put it towards a trip.

I have had my heart broken and broke a few myself. This body has seen 99 lbs and 180 lbs (no tummy tuck BTW) Boobs yes. Tummy tuck no. It’s called exercise and being in tune with your body. (moral of this story: Don’t bring others down and make shit up to make yourself look good. It has the opposite effect)

We have all suffered from pain. Heartbreak to pushing for 19 hours to give birth to an angel.

There are times when you think emotional and physical pain is so bad that you just want to give up. Storms that you never think you will get through and then you open your eyes and realize “as long as you are breathing, there is more right than wrong with you no matter what is wrong”-Jon Kabat.

This beautiful, yet challenging life I have had has shaped me and encourages me everyday to be perfectly imperfect. I am learning and growing and I will until I die keeping in mind to breathe and be fully present.

In 2021, the year I turn 50, I will have one young woman in college and my young, handsome man on his way. Holy shit!!! I encourage them to see the world. Get out of the bubble. Live. Learn. Be street smart and take care of your bodies inside and out. Where will I be? Hopefully sitting here writing to follow up on this blog. I may not be physically sitting at this desk, but I will write. My hope is that my daughter follows her dream of going to college in California and my son in Florida and I will be writing this in either of those two states as I visit them. I will be proud of them with any decision they make.

As for my professional life….who knows. Taking one day at a time. Learning and sharing through yoga. Learning, sharing and teaching how to live a perfectly imperfect, authentic, natural, healthy lifestyle until I can’t go any longer. It’s going to take a lot for me to stop.

Follow your dreams. Go for it and never give up. There is still time. 40, 50, 60 and 70 on up!! It doesn’t matter.

In three years I will be 50 years old. Wiser, smarter, stronger and healthier than ever before. Maybe my life will be half over, but one thing that I will always take with me is that I have lived a life that made me who I am today. As always, I am blessed and grateful to those who pushed me, pulled me, left me, loved me, messed with me, doubted me and encouraged me. Thank you!!

The road to 50 is going to be great.

No matter what age, learn, live, grow, heal, share, practice, teach, and breathe. Take good care of yourself today and always.

“The best investment that you’ll ever make is in yourself. Never stop exploring, learning, experiencing, and becoming a better person each day”-Mo Seetubtim

Labor of Love

Are you working for the next new pair of shoes or the next new fancy new car that hits the lot?

What are you hungry for? Stuff? A relationship? Are you confusing depression for the longing of something that is missing in your life?

As I listen, think, learn and write on this beautiful Sunday afternoon preparing for class on Monday; I am blown away. Blown away by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee as he speaks on Super Soul Conversations with Oprah. A must!!

As we sit lay here on our mats on this Labor Day, I would like you all to think about why you work and do you truly love what you do. Does your job serve a purpose besides buying stuff? Remove pensions and 401k. Let's just remove money completely out of the equation.

What would you do to serve others without too many or no financial incentives? How do you think it would make you feel?

Would you be willing to take a risk and serve to remove the "me" and make into a "we"?

When you begin to serve, you will begin to discover that the important things are not "things" at all.  Then all of your work comes from your mind and your heart and you get that amazing feeling in your heart and in your tummy that you want to serve everywhere.

Mother Teresa said "We can do no great things-only small things with love". She made a difference for millions of people. Remember it is not what we do that matters, it's the energy and love that we put into it that counts.

We all have to work to earn so we can give our children what they need; food, shelter and clothes on their back. So many of us want to give our children everything they want because we may have felt slighted growing up. We need to break that cycle. Let's start showing our children what it looks like to serve and help others so it will encourage them to do the same.

Day after day, I hear so many people complain about how much they dislike their job and how unhappy they are. My response is "Leave". Do what you love. What's holding you back? The answers-"Pension. 401K. and  health benefits". 

Guess what? This world could end tomorrow and none of it will even matter. What matters is you do what you love, serve for yourself, your children and others along the way.

Don't chase a job because of the money. Chase ways to help people and promote others, work that brings you joy, and opportunities that will help you to continue to learn and grow . Happy parents=Happy kids.

What is your goal? To be filthy rich with "things" or rich in health, happiness, knowledge, laughter and love?

Today we celebrate Labor Day honoring the American Labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, laws and well-being of the country. Yet, almost every store and restaurant is open for business including SUKHA. I do not consider what I do work. Yes, I obviously need to charge to pay the rent and the bills, but this is love for me. Reading, writing and creating playlists ,dharmas, and sequences everyday takes time. I could not imagine, walking through these doors with a random playlist on my phone and just open a random site or book and read two sentences or rattle off some random non-sense without  any reason or a why. As I learn, I share and teach. Running a business is work. Lots of work no matter how small the business is. 

I am a Doterra Wellness Advocate for a few reasons. The mail reason is I would like to share these oils with as many people as I can. Why? Because I believe in them. They have helped me on so many different levels. Do I consider this "work"? Hard Labor? Nope. I am my own boss. 

I share because I care. Whatever it may be.

Let's start to celebrate labors of love! A piece of hard work that you do because you enjoy it and not because you receive money or praise!

I hope each of you can find space to shine your light by helping others find theirs.

Do what you love.

Love what you do.

Help and serve others when ever you can.

I hope everyone had a great summer!

I wish all of the kids best of luck this school year. Study hard and play hard.

Keep in mind drinking makes you sloppy and slow.

You have Gifts, Talents and a Purpose. LIVE IT!

I felt the need to write tonight as a "week in review". It will not be poetic, or maybe some of you may think its pointless. There are certain times I feel selfish not sharing. Sharing is caring and when we hold ourselves back from sharing, we are holding back love from ourselves and others.

Last week was hectic. My calendar was full of classes, football, cheer,  a fundraiser, preparing for High School, writing dharmas, posting blogs, playlists, laundry, bills, scheduling, bike repairs, food shopping, cleaning and grey removal!!( I needed to fit some self care in)

Two amazing blogs were posted written by two amazing, brave, perfectly imperfect women. Michelle Amy wrote about her relationship with her yoga mat and Krissy-Jo poured her heart out about her weight loss journey, self-love and acceptance. Continue to write, to heal and share your work. Water it with compassion, kindness and light. It deserves to be seen by everyone. You ladies have a purpose. You ladies have a gift. You ladies have a talent. LIVE IT. SHARE IT.

It was a week of running around. One to cheer and work, and the other to football. I don't want to get into the football experience, because I am still trying to figure out how I am going to be able to sit through a season without cringing and coming pretty close to passing out. A football blog will soon follow. I would like to share with you a great movie I watched Saturday night on Amazon that is for everyone to watch. Parents and kids. ATHLETES!! It's a must. "Peaceful Warrior" staring Nick Nolte. "A warrior does not give up what he loves, he find the love in what he does".

Friday  early evening I decided to meet up with two good friends for a couple of hours. It was great catching up, sharing stories, thinking, creating, laughing and enjoying the moment. WE have a purpose. WE are living it and we WILL SHARE IT.

How do you find people that inspire you? Do your friends inspire you or do they bring you down? When you find people that help you find the best version of yourself, KEEP THEM.

Find people who want to learn, grow, share, raise their vibration and live authentically.. Men and women who want to be grow, transform and have the same interest in personal development.

As you continue to lift yourself up by learning and growing you start to attract the same. Shine bright, SMILE, be full of energy and you will find the same. You will lift them and they will lift you. Stay clear from the ones who bring you down. I have had many the last few years.

We all have the desire to want those around them on the same level they are. )At least good people do).

When a person makes s decision that they are going to improve their life, lift themselves up, those around them (the nay-sayers) instinctively try to pull them down. They will make fun of your efforts, work and success or try to minimize it. They will belittle your abilities to reach new levels. Bottom line? Those peeps are no good. (I am being very kind)

What is the reality? They are bringing you down to lift themselves up. 

Stop accepting the advice of people who you would never want to be like. Take a VERY close look.  It may take you days, months or a year. That's okay.

Begin to slowly remove the trash talkers, the downers, the nay-sayers. Anyone who keeps you from growing, and reaching new heights. Hang on tightly to the ones who help you grow. Be the one who shines bright and has the energy to pull others up. Be that beautiful, smiling, energetic, compassionate soul that encourages others who are actively working to improve their own life.

I will conclude this blog giving a shout out to a group of women who I have witnessed lifting each other up, supporting their dreams, who are looking to improve their circumstances, and are glowing, alive and want to raise their vibration and bring others along for the ride. It has been so refreshing to meet Jenn, Debra, Lauren, Lindsey, Ellen, Alexis and Viki. These amazing women I was blessed to meet a few months ago through yoga. We flowed Thursday night for Debra and her son River. There were tears, smiles, and lots of hugs. These women are a TRIBE. A Perfectly Imperfect, Good Vibe Tribe who lifts each other up personally and professionally.

These amazing women are members of The Bloom Foundation. The Vision of this foundation is to create a world where every mother has access to a new standard of care for maternal mental health and wellness. Viki has been holding Akashic Record Readings at SUKHA and will be holding a breath work circle at SUKHA 9/25. 

Ladies, you have gifts, talents, and a purpose!! Continue to LIVE IT and SHARE IT.
