Are you Awake?

“Once we see the light, we can’t unsee it.

What once made sense no longer does.

Seeing new things will always require change, as the lessons seek to shift into our bones.

Many of us avoid the unfamiliar because we doubt we can hold it. We’ve been told for so long that we need a guidebook to tell us what to see. The American dream promises fulfillment while pouring concrete into our legs assuring that we feel as if we can’t stand anywhere but where they say.

We can pretend to build a happy home within the safety of the known, but it’s a facade. There is no promised safety. Just flow or resistance.

We either surrender to the present or we create anxiety, depression, and apathy.

Experiences deliver these lessons like a wheelbarrow of compost, delivering ingredients essential for growth. We can refuse to absorb it, but in doing so we choose a piece of life over the entirety.

We’ve been conditioned to feel weak, but our arms can hold more than we know. If it has arrived on our doorstep it is ours to meet, digest, wrestle with, consume, and then spit out what we no longer need.

Wherever you are, whatever you are doing, I hope that you take a moment to breathe in, soften your heart, remind yourself that you are capable, and lean into your lessons.

In each moment it is yours to choose:

Resistance or Flow”

I spent part of my adolescent life feeling depressed, lost, and trapped. It wasn't until I was on the verge of passing out with stomach pains, a chronic headache, blurry vision, and adrenal fatigue that I finally WOKE UP. 'Okay, something isn't right and I need to figure out what, and change it.' So I did. I saw that Naturopathic Doctor who had been in the back of my mind. My lack of knowledge about food and balancing my plate was causing some serious havoc on my body and preventing me from being able to think clearly and live in a state of health. I hadn't made the connection the reason I was feeling so poorly was because of the food I was eating. I pushed myself way past my comfort zone by listening to my gut feeling and enrolled myself into the Institute for Integrative Nutrition®. This is where it all started. I was finally able to start healing. My ability to make this change came from Switching my Mindset, Pushing Past Fear, Putting Myself First, and Listening to My Intuition. I listened to myself and my body and what it was trying to tell me, instead of what others were telling me what I should do. It allowed me to see how the advice I was given by others may have been good, but it wasn't what I needed in order to get to where I wanted to go. The only way we can heal ourselves and accomplish the things we want to in life is if we Trust and Listen to our Own Intuition.
