The most valuable lesson I have learned is that the most meaningful journey is the inner journey.

Bouncing Back

This week, I want to continue our conversation about our chakras. We're hopefully understanding a little bit more about our energy and how we can help our health. When we are feeling stuck, understanding our chakra centers and how we can move that energy, move that energy around to feel better, well, that's very empowering.

The Warmth Within

This week I wanted to kind of do a recap. How's your summer been? How have you been keeping up with your self-care? How about our boundaries? You know, we're about to start that last slide into the last few months of the year, and for some reason we just feel like we got to fit it all in and we get crazy.

Whiskers of Wisdom

This week I wish to talk about the word dog. I just want to talk about this amazing rescue pup that we brought into our family in March of this year. We'd been looking for a friend for Hoshi for quite a while. And so this new little girl - her name is Nori from her DNA that we did for her.

Shades of Strength

This week I was thinking about the word ‘grey’. It seems to be the color, the hair color that is. Maybe it's because of my age, but I see young and old with beautiful grey hair. It has become a color of youth and not a color of age.

Pack Smart, Travel Happy

This week I want to talk about packing for travel. I don't know about you, but you've probably gotten back into your life a little more quickly than I have. My health event in January gave me a slow start to getting back to “normal”. But here we are in the summer and planning our first trip in four years. It made me think about everyone traveling and what and how we decide what to bring with us.

Discovering Inner Harmony

For those that don’t know what our chakras are, they are our energy centers in our body and we have seven of them. Each chakra moves in a spinning motion that filters the energy of the environment around us and helps disperse it. There are events in our lives. Emotional. Traumatic that hit our chakras. And then our chakras will close.

Honoring Your Body

This week, I want to talk about being friends with our body. Oh, maybe you're rolling your eyes. But you know what? I feel like at times we kind of separate. We're all in our heads and we separate, and we're at odds with our bodies. And I have talked about connecting the dots with how our food and our environment and our movement affect our body.

Busy Day, Healthy Choices

This week I thought I would talk a little bit about our food on a busy day. You know what? It's that time of year when we're out and about. We have more time for our outside activities and we may not be thinking about or planning our food for the day. It's so important for our self-care to not get dehydrated and hungry when we're out for the day.

The Beauty of Authenticity

This week, since it's that time of year where maybe we've got some vacations, we're away from home and we're with different groups of people. I thought I'd talk about sharing our stories. I hope you've discovered how fun and easy it is to start and have a good, meaningful conversation with someone. Everyone has something to share. Everyone has a story to tell to facilitate connecting and sharing our stories.

The Power of Small Moments

This week, let's go back and talk a little bit more about self-care. Why is it that maybe we don't put enough of it into our day? I was thinking if we broke it down into micro moments in our day, maybe we could find a little bit more time for self-care. So the micro moments are the moments in between, the moments in between a meeting or maybe a meal, or maybe you're driving somewhere.

How to get Better Results by Slowing Down

This week I want to talk about less is more. I feel like there is a great myth in life that connects our worth – our personal internal worth – to our productivity. We, in our busy life, tend to ignore our hunger, how tired we are. We work through sickness. We push our bladders to the brink because there’s always something more to do. There’s always something that needs to get done.

How our Emotions and Organs are Connected

This week, I want to talk about our organs, our emotions, and the time of day. My recent visit to the hospital in early January made me very aware of my lungs. The threat of not being able to breathe was very real and a very big learning moment for me. But once I knew I was okay, I started to think about – I know I’m weird, I started to think about my traditional Chinese medicine and the miracle of our body and how it works.

Listen to Your Liver!

Finally, we’re seeing a little shift in the weather. This is the time that we know as spring. It means we renew and new beginnings and we talk about spring cleaning and opening the windows, decluttering, cleaning out, freshening up in traditional Chinese medicine. And if you remember, I’ve spoken about this in the past that each season has organs that are related to it.
