My Morning Practice

How I set myself up to win, and what I’ve been doing for years now.
 
How has a 5 am morning practice changed my life?
 
Well I can tell you that it’s not only changed my outside but most importantly it changed the inside.
 
Here’s what I do. Every damn day. Even on the weekend.
 
1. Alarm goes off. I get up. I always get minimum 7 hours sleep.
 
2. I go pee, I get dressed, I grab my clothes for the day, and head down to my kitchen.
 
3. I grab a piece of fruit, usually an orange, and maybe some cashew butter on a spoon, mix up my pre-workout and head down to my studio.  
 
4. I write out I AM affirmations while I sit in my sauna. Years ago when I was struggling with life, and pretending to be “good”, I was reciting, “I am tired, I am broke, I am busy”.... that kinda language does not look sexy on any grown woman.
 
5. I set an Intention for the day, which is always grounded...

I went to a Therapist once...

I went to a therapist once for my mental health, but something was “off”.  

I was going through intense PTSD, anxiety, needed medication, and was scared to be alone after a pretty scary life event that shifted something “upstairs”.  

She told me I should be doing Yoga.  

I mean...  

How could she really be teaching and helping me about my own mental health when she herself was extremely overweight, and had bowls of candy in her office?  

Not judging. Just reporting facts.  

So I actually took my health and healing into my own hands.  

You see.....  

There are a lot of “fake” teachers out there.  

Talking the talk, but not actually walking the walk, for anyone who values their own mental health and well-being knows the importance of eating the right foods, being at an ideal body weight, moving their body and removing the sugar.  

So no, I actually wasn’t buying the “books smarts”...

INNER HEALING

I am asked all the time. Do I get up EVERY morning to exercise? The answer is YES.



While it might not be to move my body and sweat, I do get up to exercise and train my mind.



Meditation and inner healing work started 10 years ago. Loss. Heartache. Disappointment. Anger. Fear. Grief .I’d listen to meditations at bedtime and find myself falling peacefully to sleep as I released tears and baggage weighing me down. To date. It’s been the most HARDEST transformation. Even harder than overcoming obesity.



7 days a week. 365 days a year, I now show up for myself for with a strong mind you can conquer anything. You can overcome it all.



Have you ever sat with your fears , doubts, anxiety, anger, resentment, unworthiness, sadness long enough to ask questions?? What are you here to teach me? What is it you wish for me to hear? What do I need to learn and how can I be FREE from it?



None of us are exempt from challenges and struggles. I’ve had my fair share of them, and...

Believe it. Feel it.

Do you ever ask for a sign? Ever feel like you are being guided?
.
Truth be told I’ve been relying A LOT of my faith lately. Trying super hard to work on something, to heal, to make progress, but the pesky EGO always gets in the way.
.
You’re not good enough. You can’t. You don’t have the time. You don’t deserve it. When the EGO gets in your way it actually paralyzes you from progress. From growth. From Miracles. From JOY. From abundance.
.
Today just when I needed reassurance the most... That I AM good enough, pretty enough, smart enough, fit enough, worthy enough.... The SIGNS appeared.
.
At every tree that Elliott stopped at on the way home... sitting right on the branch that was just her height, was a feather.
.
Someone is watching over me, giving me that gentle reminder that I’m on the right path. You GOT this girl. ... and then you say the only prayer that is EVER needed.
.
Thank you
.

Whatever follows I AM is your reality friends. It’s hard...
