2 Holistic Ingredients for Perfect Weight

The spiritual perspective on weight loss strives for wholeness rather than perfection. It requires a balance between mind/body and spirit. We must consider the first four letters of the word HEALth to be reminded that healing all aspects of our selves is necessary to find our perfect weight. We need to heal with natural food, regular exercise, a mindful presence and with the spiritual nourishment of self-compassion.

Repressed emotions must also be addressed. We must let go of…

Know Thyself

Plato’s famous words are inscribed on the ruins of the Temple of Apollo, a place where the ancient Greeks would gather for advice from an Oracle. The Oracles’ mystical vision from the Gods would then be translated, for the population, by the priests. After hundreds of years, has anything really changed?

Turning Inward for Health and Wholeness

It is time to throw open the window, shake out the winter dust and stagger into the sun again. We strive to make up for lost time now the days become longer. It suddenly seems easier to establish and commit to a work-out schedule uninterrupted by the cold. Yoga classes, gym memberships, and beauty salons all climb in attendance as we prepare for the stripped down summer.

5 Lessons for Self-Love

 

Self-love is vital for health and happiness. Love is a powerful, positive energy that is necessary for a healthy balance between mind, body and spirit. We cannot recognize love in others unless we have it for ourselves. It allows us something genuine to share with the world, and when you believe you are worthy, your life will reflect it.

The concept of self-love should not be confused with narcissism and selfishness. Rather, look to the ancient wisdom of the…

What is the Difference Between Mindfulness and Meditation?

It is difficult to pick up a magazine or scroll through our social media without seeing a mention of either mindfulness or meditation. Sometimes it can be confusing as the terms seem to be interchangeable. Here is a simple explanation on the ways that they are separate, similar and synchronize together.

We can start with two common myths. Mindfulness is NOT thinking really hard about something, which sounds stressful. Meditation is NOT about shutting down the mind like an off…

3 Steps to Goal Success Using Meditation

“We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts we make the world.” Buddha

 

One thing we know for sure is that thoughts emanate from the brain and mind to create our life and lead us to every success or failure. Are we starting each new day with the same old thoughts and expecting different results? When it comes to achieving our goals, we are given the advice to “just put our minds to it” yet never being told exactly how we…

Why Meditating with Others is Practical and Powerful (final version)

We spend a lot of time alone without realizing it. It doesn’t seem like we’re alone when we’re communicating on Twitter, sharing images on Instagram and Pinterest and liking friends’ updates on Facebook, but scrolling is, nonetheless, a solitary pastime.

Socializing has been redefined by our technological lives and has never been so easy, yet maybe it’s…

4 Steps to Shift Your Money Mindset

Our goal of living an abundant and happy life with all our creative and financial needs met, is why we work so hard every day.  When working harder and longer hours isn't being reflected back to us in our bank balance, we need to look at our mindset about money.

Abundance, or lack thereof, is connected to feelings inside of us. These feelings come from our past experiences. According to Eckhart Tolle, "a person's thinking and beliefs are conditioned by their past: their…

5 Ways to Peace for Control Freaks

Control freaks are lacking peace in their lives. They are always being told to “chill out” as stress pervades their lives because they try too hard. It is unrealistic to expect to control everything that happens to us in our day and the days to come, yet so many of us feel extreme anxiety over getting every detail just right and defining an outcome.

Control is a reaction to fear. Fear of what will happen if we don’t get the result we are pushing so hard for, while exhausting…
