What does doing inner child work mean to you? Is the inner child even something you have heard of before?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This concept was introduced a few years ago to me and there isn't a day that goes by now that I don't evaluate my behavior through a lens of: (1) is this MY belief or one imposed on me? or (2) what does that younger version of me that is scared/angry/sad/frustrated need from me right now? Is this something I can provide myself or is it something I need someone else to help me with? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ While this line of questioning can sometimes lead down a rabbit hole of questioning and discovery, I am grateful at this point in my life to have the awareness that inner child work is so important to my own growth and evolution, primarily as it relates to triggers I experience in my relationships. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How about you? Are you familiar with inner child work? What do you find yourself most triggered by and why? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #innerchild #emotionalresponsibility #emotionalownership #protectors #vulnerability #triggers #holisticcare #holisticwellness #loveyourself #wellnesscoaching #subconciouswiring
Be honest – does stress keep you from being your happiest, healthiest self? It makes sense, considering stress is one of the biggest health disrupters and also one of the most prominent toxins. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In fact, stress is so bad it weakens your immune system and adversely effects every other system in the body. In fact, it has been shown to help cancer cells survive, according to a study conducted by George Kulik, Ph.D. at Wake Forest University. You can read about that study here: http://mcb.graduate.wfu.edu/faculty/george-kulik/⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It also can cause headaches, digestive issues, diarrhea, decreased sex drive, constipation, exhaustion, adrenal fatigue, cravings, and a host of other undesirable side effects.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Identifying what causes you stress, as well as learning how to properly cope with stress, is crucial for a healthier life.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I encourage you to reflect on the top 5 stressors that are in your life and what actions you can take to eliminate them today! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #stressfree #eliminatestress #holistic #inspiration #holistichealth #exercise #happiness #nature #healthylife #life #energy #anxiety #wellness #wellnessjourney #wellnessthatworks #wellnesslifestyle #wellnesslife #wellnesstips #wellnessmama #workingmoms #wellnesscoach
It’s an unfortunate reality that people just go through life, day to day, without ever taking their happiness into consideration. It’s a robotic routine that has managed to take over most of the world.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If they experience feelings of sadness or negativity, they temporarily push those feelings to the side by taking advantage of bad habits such as binge eating, smoking, or spending (to name a few). They never get to the root of their bad feelings or take action to increase their happiness. They become unhappier, and unhealthier, by the day. I don’t want that for you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If I asked you to rate your happiness level on a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the happiest you could be, what would your answer be? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If your reply is anything under an 8, I encourage you to work to identify where your unhappiness stems from. Go through each area of your life and assess where your level of happiness falls so that you can determine which area needs fine tuning...is it your finances? Your relationships? Your career? Your spirituality? Your physical fitness? Your friendships? If you find that there are similar patterns in a few areas of your life (overeating, overspending; unhappy in job, unhappy in relationship, etc), there is likely an underlying subconscious belief that needs to be worked through. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #getyourhappyon #holistic #inspiration #holistichealth #happiness #nature #healthylife #wellness #wellnessjourney #wellnessthatworks #wellnesslifestyle #wellnesslife #wellnesstips #wellnessmama #workingmoms
In a society that attaches significance to suffering, I ask you, what do you do to get through your suffering and despair? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The first step is really becoming aware of the thoughts that are driving the suffering, negativity or resistance. The next step is becoming aware of your mind, that is circling these thoughts, ruminating on the situation. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And finally, as you become aware of this part of you that is experiencing this suffering, surrender to the grief. Can you witness it, allow it to be there, embrace it? By doing this, you can transmute your suffering into peace. By turning towards it, instead of running away from it, you can transform it instead of perpetuating it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Drop me a line below if this practice is helpful to you! It comes from Eckhart Tolle's The Power of Now, a must read for anyone going through a spiritual awakening. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #transformsuffering #energetics #manifestation #spirituality #wellnesscoach #wellnessguide #transformyourlife #elevateyourlife #wellness #wellnessjourney #wellnessthatworks #wellnesslifestyle #wellnesslife #wellnesstips #wellnessmama #mentalhealth
NEW BLOG POST!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Happiness is an emotional state of well-being defined by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. Happy mental states also reflect a person’s thoughts about their overall well-being.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Happiness comes from within.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We have talked about finding more happiness from our surroundings by changing our mentality. Today we will talk about the “happiness ingredients” in your food that can influence your hormones and state of mind.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nature gave us “happiness hormones”: serotonin, dopamine, phenylethylamine, ghrelin and the endorphins. When we feel happy or euphoric, we are experiencing a combination of positive mindset and chemical reactions from our happiness hormones. These hormones can be released by exercise or even by eating certain foods.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ To learn more about which foods are our happiness foods, read this week's blog post > link in bio!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #happinessfoods⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mindbodyspirit⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #healthyhappylife⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #wellnessjourney⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #nourishyourself⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #lookwithin⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #moveyourbody⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #holistic ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #inspiration ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #holistichealth⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #exercise ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #happiness ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #nature ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #healthylife ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #life ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #plantbased ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #healthandwellness ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #happy ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #instagood ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #food
Sedona you have stolen my heart ❤️ Spent a grounding and heart centered four days in this beautiful place reconnecting with myself, experiencing the power of the vortexes, deepening my spirituality and learning many traditions of the Native American culture. I will write more in a blog post about some of the illuminating services I experienced at @mii_amo_spa, a place I will return to hopefully every year. And the picture with that man holding the heart? He sits up at the top of one of the vortexes every day and plays his flute and gives out these hearts he has made of the red rocks to every person that comes to see him - his message? To spread unconditional love across the world. An entire group of Japanese women asked me to take their picture with him because he is famous for his message even over in Japan. Just another reminder that no matter where we are in the world, love connects us all.
