Real-Life, No BS Chakra and Yoga Workshop

I am so honored and thrilled to have Lindsey and Chris Jones, Founders of Hug Your Chaos return to SUKHA on Sunday October, 7th at 12:00 pm. Lindsey and Chris have been such a huge part of my healing journey in a no BULLSHIT way. They tell it like it is!! I call it tough love. The exact same way, I give it. I truly feel this is why we connected instantly. No sugar coating, no pussy footing around.

This amazing couple have been through it all, share their experiences, and coach people on how they can Hug Chaos. Let’s face it, we all have chaos. It’s a matter of accepting it, hugging it all, learning, growing and not drowning in it. Let’s stop complaining, end the “whoa is me”, the “why is this happening to me” crap and start doing something about it. You will be amazed how things turn around.

Before I introduce the workshop/book signing, I am going to share with you one of MANY of my favorite paragraphs from Lindsay’s new book, “The Chakras. A real-Life, No Bullsh*t Guide to healing Your Life”

“This book isn’t about dumping a bunch of big Sanskrit words on you, so you can be impressed by my knowledge of dead languages. It’s not about me using big fancy words so you can look at me as though I’m smart, It’s not about me regurgitating a bunch of research that comes from ancient texts that date back thousands of years, so you can put me on a pedestal and sing my praise. It’s not about any of that. It’s not even going to be all that esoteric, which is funny because, I know since we are talking about energy work and chakras.”

“This book is going to be about real talk, real life, and how you can empower yourself from within so that all the other nonsense in your life can fade away because you won’t need those lessons any longer. It’s about teaching you how to take charge of your life and your healing, so you can live the life of magic that you were born to live”

How refreshing does this sound??? Real Life!!! No bullshit. Straight to the point healing.

Come and join Lindsay Carricarte-Jones & Christopher Jones of Hug Your Chaos to learn just how vital chakra health and wellness really is. Your chakra health should not be a luxury! During this workshop, we're going to spend some time working with yoga asanas combined with chakra work in order to deliver a practical real-life approach to your healing. This workshop goes hand in hand with Lindsay's new book, "The Chakras. A Real-Life, No Bullsh*t Guide to Healing Your Life" and you're going to receive a signed copy of the book so that you can continue to explore the world of chakra healing even after the workshop. Chakras and yoga go hand in hand because it is on the mat that we can claim the space that allows us to begin releasing those stored energetic patterns that block up our chakras in the first place. Through yoga, we move stuck and stagnant energies which creates space for new and empowering energetic patterns such as showing up for ourselves, meeting our own needs, creating boundaries and finding our voice. It is on the mat that we can begin to practice these habits that once seemed far from possible for us and it is what we do on the mat that we can learn to carry out into the world. When you overlay your yoga practice with an understanding of the chakras as a whole as well as your own unique energetic patterns you gain a whole new level of power over your own healing and life. Bring your mat, wear comfy clothes, and bring something to jot down some notes or affirmations. Get ready to have some fun and smash out of those comfort zones. 

We are Lindsay & Christopher Jones, better known as Hug Your Chaos. #Hugyourchaos is our movement and our life. It is our mission. We are the founders of hugyourchaos.com and Hug Your Chaos Abundant Life Mastery. We're both certified coaches and healers who specialize in guiding others to smash through their self-limiting blocks in order to start living the life they are meant to be living.

We work with a variety of healing, energy, coaching, and empowerment modalities because it is our mission to help others heal and empower their own lives the way we did in our own lives. If you would like to know more about our personal journeys through severe addiction, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and the road to healing visit us at www.hugyourchaos.com/about/

The fact of the matter is this: before we met one another, Chris & Lindsay were both coming out of the darkest dark night of the soul a person can go through and live. We both came through it and found a path to healing through various modalities such as Vipassan meditation,

Buddhism, Hatha Yoga, Kriya Yoga, Reiki, crystal healing, yoga, philosophy, therapy, 12-step programs, nutrition, Ayurveda, and various holistic healing methods. We then came together and knew we were meant to guide others to their own power.

So here we are!

Both of us are certified life coaches but we prefer the title of Life Excellence Gurus.

Chris is also a Reiki Master and has a degree in Western Herbal Medicine. He's an Alchemist and all around Magical Mother F*cker.

Linds is Reiki Level 3, YTT 200 hour in Hatha Yoga, a student of Kriya under Guruji Yogananda, Pagan Buddhist, and all around Magical Mother F*cker.

We see the world as a place of energy and believe that all problems originate on the energetic plane. thus, we seek to empower YOU to become a conscious co-creator of your divine reality. We don't believe in competition or the fear mindset - these are dying paradigms and we want to help you challenge them!

This workshop is $25 and includes a yoga class, workshop and FREE signed copy of The Chakras. A real-Life, No Bullsh*t Guide to Healing Your Life.

Do You really Care.....

What people think?

There are so many people, all ages that are so worried about what others think of us. The bottom line is it truly does not matter. When we constantly worry and it causes nothing but anxiety and unnecessary stress.

This morning in class I decided to read a great blog about just this topic, take it up a notch and bust out "To Be Real" and just start dancing. Not giving a shit what anyone thought. And guess what? It felt amazing and all of the 21 peeps in the room did the same.

Why do we care about what Jane Smith from the PTO thinks about us? Why? 

It is time to UNFUCK ourselves as Hug Your Chaos has taught me, Let's re-wire our brains with positive thoughts and not negativity.

Start doing the work. Begin by digger deep within yourself because you deserve it and you should start showing the world what a beautiful human you are without trying to impress with stress.

Let's not take this the wrong way. We can and should CARE about others, their feelings and what they think. But if you find yourself becoming anxious and stressed over it, you need to figure out exactly why.

"We have an inside and an outside—an interior landscape and an exterior landscape. Our interior landscape is our subjective experience of our authentic self, while our exterior landscape is a product of our worldview. The two together create a psychosocial dynamic, but that dynamic has only one reference point, leaving us balancing self- and other-perception.

When this delicate balance shifts because we begin seeking approval, or attempting to control outcomes, we become externally focused and can literally lose sight of our essential nature. That essential nature is different from the ego-self—the self-image fed and influenced by what is outside of us. In looking out, rather than within, our sense-of-self and sense-of-place become clouded. The more we attempt to establish these sensibilities through external means, the more clouded our vision becomes and the further we get from our authentic self. Instead of being fully present in our social interactions, our thoughts and behavior become means for eliciting a response, rather than an expression of self-value.

The ego-self is a false self, a façade scripted by the demands of our context as we perceive them. It is our self-image, our social mask, the role we are playing—and it thrives on approval. That need for approval is driven by self-criticism and negative self-talk, which are fear-based. That fear derives from any number of sources, from our original premise concerning fear of rejection to a "less-than" mentality, all of which begs the question:

We’ve been disapproving of ourselves our entire lives without much success. Why not start approving of ourselves and see how that works out?

Self-approval comes out of self-acceptance, which rises out of the recognition that we are, in fact, enough, just as we are. With that recognition, we can free ourselves from fear; we no longer need to look outside for a validation that, on the inside is self-evident. We come into our power, our full humanity, in the recognition that our essential nature is all we need to be fully us."-Psychology Today

Loose the stress of trying to impress. Your body knows you are not being authentic and that is causing stress and can lead to more dis-ease. And that feels so much wore than having someone dislike you.

Did you know that Ulcers are caused by fear? Fear of not being good enough because we can't stomach who we are and we rip our guts out everyday trying to please others. That's a pretty scary thought. Keep that in your mind when you are stressed over what people think of you and constantly trying to please others.
