Are you feeling the summer’s heat? The past few weeks I feel like I have been sitting on a hot box! I’m not talking temperature hot here; I am talking thoughts, emotions, and the physical body. Things feel like they are moving so quickly, but at the same time they feel like they aren’t moving at all. Can you think of a time when you felt like you were working really hard at something and you felt like you weren’t getting results fast enough? (I will also share a personal story about me).
What is integrity?
Integrity is when your thoughts, words, feelings, and actions all align with your goals and intentions.
This is one of the places I see so many people fall short.
A few questions you can ask yourself…
* Are you doing things that in your heart you know you
don’t want to do?
* Are you saying yes when you really mean no?
* Are you focused on other people’s problems instead of
looking inward and focusing on your own?
* Are you making excuses for your actions? Are you taking
responsibility for your life?
Today I will give you some specific steps to help you live in integrity!
Last Monday I took a class with one of my mentors Diana Dorell called “Heal Your Heart” and in the past seven days I have been going through my own healing! When I woke up today, I felt a heavy sadness. I went for a walk to reflect and I realized a few things.
1. In order to truly heal I must grieve the old and let go of what no longer serves me to fully welcome the new opportunities and joy that is waiting to fill my heart.
This week I want to talk about something a little more near and dear to my heart! Aligning with your body’s needs (through nutrition). Our body is our physical vessel for this lifetime and it is so important that we nourish it and take care of it. When we are out of alignment with it, it can create a state of Dis – Ease and create illness, pain, weight, or other health issues. So today I will give you a few key tips to help you tune into your body so you can give it what it needs and reach your highest state of wellbeing.
Our bodies are so amazing! I don’t know about you, but I am amazed by mine more and more each day! A few years ago I went through a period where I disliked my body! I hated the way it made me feel, the way it looked, and the messages it was trying to give me! I felt like it wasn’t me or even a part of me. A dear friend of mine helped me to realize that my body was not this separate piece of me…it was part of me. It took me a while to ponder that and really come to terms with it, but when I did I was able to look at and respect it in a whole new way. Since then I have been able to tune into to its messages (the bloating, stomach pain, back pain, extra weight, and food cravings) and use them as a tool to know what I need. Today I want to share with you some of the messages behind cravings! My hope is that these messages and exercises can help you to connect a little more with your body and open up some space in your heart for self love!
Is Stress Affecting Your Health?
Here is a short quiz to determine if stress is affecting your health.
Are you feeling overwhelmed or over loaded?
Do you find yourself anxious, fearful, or constantly worrying?
Have you recently gained weight or find it difficult to lose weight?
Do you feel tired, run down, or have lack of motivation?
Do you have tension in your back or shoulders?
Do you have abdominal bloating or pain?
If you answered YES to most of these questions than more than likely you are experiencing some type of stress. Below are some of my favorite tools to help you reduce your stress!

Did you know that the Spring Equinox is in only a few days? March 20th! That’s right spring is officially here and I am so excited! This week my orchid bloomed! What perfect timing. I’ve had it for three years and this is the second time it blooms. The past few weeks as I watched my orchid come alive, I have been reminded of the different ways that I have changed and grown over the past few years of my life. I have been reflecting on the heavy inward times of the winter months and the shifts that have taken place for me in the spring (March, April, and May)! Spring is by for my favorite season because I absolutely love watching things change and transform (including people and myself)! It makes me smile and warms my heart to see things grow, whether it’s a flower come to life or person transforming their health and rediscover their inner sparkle/ passions. If there is an area in your life that you want to transform or make changes spring is the perfect time to do so! Keep reading for 3 easy steps to create change and this week only specials.

“Healing works through a kind of detox: things have got to come up in order to be released. That is true of our personal issues, and also our collective issues. We can’t just push the darkness down, pour pink paint
over it and then pretend it’s not there. We have to look at it , accept that it exists and then release it for healing.” Unknown (thank you to an amazing friend who shared this quote with me yesterday)
