Water possesses a composition of subtle yet intricate complexities. An element of prime significance, outstanding beauty and mystery. This element carries a truth that cannot be denied. Nourishing yourself with truth allows you to embrace it.
Just as Muhammad Ali said: "Rivers, ponds, lakes and streams - they all have different names, but they all contain water. Just as religions do - they all contain truths."
The truth/importance of water:
As you know - each day, you are to drink at least 7-8 glasses of water. When? Throughout your day and before your meals to assist with digestion and help purify you internal system. However, not many understand the importance of drinking a full glass of cold water as soo...
Sunday afternoon post: At brunch, I entertained an interesting topic of conversation with a friend. We discussed health, nutrition, lifestyle adjustments and, of course, yoga. As the conversation met its conclusion, something became very clear to me.
Many individuals who practice yoga in any capacity have an independent concept of what yoga is to them. And with that - some categorize the practice with notions formulated by their own (sometimes limited) understanding.
As we all know - Yoga is broad. Very broad; and different for each person that experiences it. It's personal. For many it's more spiritual, mental and emotional than it is physical. For some it is purely mental and physical. For some it's all of that and more.

“...happiness cannot be bought with a quick fix but is the mature fruit of a life dedicated to higher values and ideals.” - Georg Feurestein
Mastering happiness and its pursuit is developed through choices, experience and perspective. Grasping this notion takes time (for many, a lifetime) - however, awareness of what the voyage in this pursuit entails inhibits you from falling prey to the state of being benighted.
Having a desire to acquire a higher state of self or living is the engine that revs one's pursuit. Whatever that passion is for you — supplying the vessel (which houses the engine for your burning desires) is of prime importance. This is where the pursuit is seen properly and appreciation for the process becomes the second nat...
Veganism may seem foreign and unappealing when based off of popular culture and implanted mainstream ideals.
According to some - meat and animal products are healthy and taste too good to give up.
Unfortunate but fair.
We have to consider that outside of programming of the media and mass marketing of the food industry (that profit from animal products being consumed) - not many people feel the need to explore the concept of a plant-based diet. To some, a plant-based diet is extreme and outrageous.
When it comes to most health concerns and preventative protocols in terms of health, most of the time - depending on the case - your doctor will encourage a better diet and exercise. However, chances are your doctor has limited knowledge on the s...
There are many of us who don't realize the significance of a life coach. Many of us who don't understand how a life coach could enhance or even apply to tour lives. Well this post is intended to get you thinking about how a life coach can be applied to your life. Let's start with some reasons as well as important details to ponder on when considering life guidance from a coach.
1) Are you stuck? Do you feel like your life is at a standstill or operating in a depthless cycle that leads to no fulfillment? You are juggling decisions on getting married, leaving your miserable relationship, finding a partner who you have genuine chemistry with, making a career change, moving to a new city or going after that big, kick-ass dream of yours. A...
The "Happy New Year" celebrations are in full throttle; partying and indulgence in libations with friends and loved ones, new year's resolutions (most of the same resolutions you had the year before) and so on. It becomes a never ending cycle within a depthless abyss manufactured as your reality. A comfort zone in which you rest without question.
This was me, as recent as last year.
Tonight I'm going to unabashedly open up as we ascend into our future, higher selves:
The paradigm that is our reality has never fulfilled me. From childhood to adulthood, I grew into a place of being lost and filled with confusion. I carried the weight to assimilate and reform. I was submerged in the pressure of having to presen...
Balance is key to all things in this life. Everything that we are is contingent upon balances and/or imbalances. For myself and my clients - I seek balance.
This post will focus on mental and psychological blockages. In order to recognize these blockages causing imbalance in our lives — it's imperative that we take the time to introduce ourselves to our stresses, insecurities, internal imbalances and so on…
Is it your personal life? Your partner? Do you feel empty and/or lonely? Are you not fulfilled? Do you struggle with your appearance/parts of your appearance? Do your insecurities control your thoughts and actions?
It's important to ask yourself these things. You have to get acquainted with what makes you feel uncomfortable in ord...
Reiki. My readers may or may not be familiar with this modality and that is okay. This blog is intended to open you up to different ideas and this particular post will most definately do that.
For me - Reiki is a spiritual modality that balances the cell frequencies of the energetic body/body-mind. It's a healing modality and then some.
As human beings - the majority of us address our well-being by catering the areas of our physical self.. whether that be exercise and diet, knowledge and education, physical health and beauty etc... However, many of us neglect a huge part of ourselves which is the BODY-MIND/THE SPIRIT/ENERGY/THE SOUL etc.
(There are many names for it - but we all possess this same internal energetic field)
..no matter how you say it - it doesn't seem to make any sort of significant impact, right? Not impactful enough to write a blog post on it..
Before we start: You must know that egg whites applied topically will change your life.
For the last two days, I have been doing egg white treatments around my eye area and I must say.. the skin around my eyes is glowing, less porous and definately tighter. Nature's Botox!
(An excerpt from LIVESTRONG)
"As you age, your body, and specifically your skin, begins to change. An older body produces less sebum, the oil that helps moisturize skin. The fat layer under the skin surface starts to fade, and this fat gives skin a rounded appearance. These are two of the key factors that le...
